Actually, NO.....China is definitely NOT a paper dragon.

It's actually a PORCELAIN dragon.....feels firm, tangible on the outside but brittle, hollow & empty on the inside. Ta ta!

I think China is awakening to the fact that its fall from greatness was less due to the strength of others, than due to her own weaknesses, chief among which history teaches, was corruption by foreign governments, especially by Imperial Japan, at its very highest levels, from regime to regime, i.e., from Manchu chief ministers like Li Hongzhang, to Beiyang warlords like Yuan Shikai, to Republic hanjians like Wang Jingwei, to Taiwan separatists up to the present.  Japanese corruption of China was worse than the Opium Trade.

Headlines Say that the Japan-US Joint Naval Exercise of November 5th Has Been Cancelled . . . Why?

Supposedly, it was because both countries were afraid of provoking China into war, after witnessing China's recently concluded one-day military exercise in the East Sea, employing 11 ships, 8 helicopters, and a thousand sailors.  The subject matter of the exercise was how to use naval warships to interdict Japanese coast guard vessels that ram Chinese marine surveillance vessels, and how to save a fisherman thrown into the sea by the ramming of his boat by Japanese vessels.  None of these apparently involved use of missiles or cannons, and the show of strength was not as great as Japan's recently concluded parade of 30 warships, including a US carrier, just five days ago, also in the East Sea, near Okinawa.  So, how is it that Japan is now afraid of provoking China, when in fact the November 5th exercise was intended precisely to publicly provoke China?

The purpose of the game was to provoke and intimidate at the same time, and the expected response from the poor victim of such psychological manipulation is supposed to be a cathartic surrender (of Diaoyu to Japan).  Has not Japan been doing that to all its neighbors for the past one hundred and fifty years?  Are not cowboys doing that day in and day out to wild horses and bulls?  Or, the Spanish matador to the bull selected for slaughter?

The real reason for the change of heart cannot be the limited firepower demonstrated by China's recent naval exercise in the East Sea.  Not that it was not impressive.  But that it was way below the firepower exhibited by Japan and allies just five days ago.

What gives?

Probably, and the public will only know later on, a key Japanese ally in the Chinese heirarchy has been removed or isolated, and therefore, there is nobody in all of the wide, wide China to submit China's Second Treaty of Shimonoseki to Imperial Japan.  This is a more likely development, because China has been actively  restructuring its leadership in preparation for the 18th Congress slated for November 9, 2012.  When there is nobody to surrender China to Japan, Japan will have a big fight ahead if it wants to secure victory.  Asking the rest of the 1.3 billion people of China to surrender can take a very, very long time.

ALL OF JAPAN'S THREATS SHOULD BE ANALYZED IN THE CONTEXT OF WWII THAT APPARENTLY NEVER ENDED ACCORDING TO THE JAPANESE WAR-CRIMINALS-WORSHIPPING LEADERS WHO JUST VISITED THEIR NATIONAL SHINTO SHRINE EN MASSE WITH THE ACQUIESCENCE OF THE WESTERN WORLD.

(Shhhh, IT WAS THE WEST THAT SURRENDERED AFTER THE WAR, PROTECTED THE EMPEROR, AND REBUILT A NAZI JAPAN, in defiance of President Truman.)

When Japan celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the founding of its Maritime SDF last week, you see Japanese war ships flying the HINOMARU sailing side by side with US warships flying the STARS AND STRIPES.  Germany should take a cue, and may be able to parade its tanks with the SWASTIKA alongside tanks with STARS AND STRIPES, followed by a bipartisan visit to a NAZI WAR SHRINE.  Don't tell us that the Aryans are inferior to the Japanese?  Actually, by this fact, the Japanese have proven they ARE superior to all the Aryans, German or non-German.  Hirohito achieved what Hitler failed.  Perhaps western officials and soliders could join the modern Japanese politicians in worshipping at the Japanese National Shinto Shrine, why be shy?  If they can be friends with War-Crimnal-Worshipping Japanese leaders , they surely can be friends with the War Criminals they are worshipping too?  Besides, it would be an indirect tribute to Hitler, friend of the Imperial Japanese, who has no shrine of his own.
