Please, targeting with radar has long been a game of chicken, no one was going to start WWIII over that. The Japanese aren't going to do it either, they know the U.S. isn't going to war with China.

Given the atrocities Japan has committed in the past against the Chinese, it's amusing to see them all upset over this. They need to quit trying to pretend every tiny island or outcropping in the sea belongs to them...

ahhh...i see you've never served in the military.
targeting radar is not a game of chicken.........it implies you are ready to fire an offensive weapon at the push of a button.
not very amusing at all..........

'Chicken' isn't usually "amusing." It's about intimidation. of course using targeting radar "implies" that you're ready to fire, that's the point. If it didn't "imply" anything, there'd be no challenge, no contest.

Who's military did YOU serve with?:)

If it's about intimidation then the PLAN would be failed terrorists after this incident.

They tried to spread terror, they failed.

Maybe they should trade their ships in for suicide vests.

well....you were the one that said it was amusing......

in a game of chicken the other side needs to know it's a game.....it stops becoming a game when you have decided to target your opponent with offensive weapons. it's one thing to scan the target with a radar beam.......but to actually open a firing solution and then fix the target.....is an act of war......had japan been as reckless as the chinese they could have very well done the very same thing......then would the chinese have ratcheted up the challenge?....you see the problem? the chinese better watch themselves or they'll find one of their new shiney toys in davey jones's locker.

Um, OK, whatever chief. I'm sure the Japanese will be sinking Chinese ships anyday, or that we'll be doing it for them...:)

Planned Bacterial Attack on the United States.

Proposals included use of these weapons against the United States.

They proposed using balloon bombs to carry disease to America and

they had a plan in the summer of 1945 to use kamikaze pilots to dump plague infected fleas on San Diego.

Some Japanese generals proposed loading the balloons with weapons of biological warfare, to create epidemics of plague or anthrax in the United States.

Other army units wanted to send cattle plague virus to wipe out the American livestock industry or grain smut to wipe out the crops.

As it happened, 9,000 balloons each carried four incendiary and one antipersonnel bomb across the Pacific on the jet stream to create forest fires and terror from Oregon to Michigan

As the end of the war approached in 1945, Unit 731 embarked on its wildest scheme; codenamed Cherry Blossoms at Night, the plan was to use kamikaze pilots to infest California with the plague

Toshimi Mizobuchi, who was an instructor for new recruits in Unit 731, said the idea was to use 20 of the 500 new troops who arrived in Harbin in July 1945.

A submarine was to take a few of them to the seas off Southern California, and then they were to fly in a plane carried on board the submarine and contaminate San Diego with plague-infected fleas.

The target date was to be Sept. 22, 1945. As it happened, the fleet of submarine seaplane carriers that assembled was assigned to launch torpedoes at the locks in the Panama canal

Japan Admits Dissecting WW-II POWs

On May 5, 1945, an American B-29 bomber was knocked down over southern Japan.

Eight American airmen prisoners were made available for medical experiments at Kyushu Imperial University. The eight were dissected organ by organ while they were still alive.

This is the only site where Americans were incontrovertibly used in dissections and the only known site where experiments were done in Japan. Kyushu University, Fukuoka, is midway between Hiroshima and Nagasaki
