    You wouldn't want to be Japanese in China these days.

    There wouldn't be a revolt, so there's no need to distract the population in the first place. You're looking at the situation from what would happen in the west.

    It's more like Chinese with an already existing hatred towards the Japanese losing all sense of rationality when the Japanese Government took actions and escalated the provocation.

    There are approximately 100 000 mass incidents a year in China. Not all is rosy north of the border.

    The Government is putting these people up to protest. Since when can people protest without being clubbed by police in China.

    Perhaps if it does go to court both sides can show what they actually have to prove their respective claims. This military posturing and stirring up the populace is not a course that can continue for long.

    Perhaps it is co-incidence...

    Not looking at it from east / west / north / south. The Transition of power is in a mess and it is very helpful that there just happens to be an opportunity to exploit with a traditional enemy that stops the political commentators focussing on the domestic mess.

    It really was irresponsible of the Japanese Government to encourage the Hong Kong Police in their super high speed power boats to allow the protesters in a clapped out fishing boat evade them...

    Unfortunately the blip in popularity didn't last very long for CY but it has been allowed to fester north of the river.

    Not so much putting them up; rather turning a blind eye or having a softly softly approach, with the aim of allowing the young men to let of a bit of steam / divert attention from other matters. It's a dangerous game though. Today the Japanese embassy. Tomorrow a corrupt local official. Next week Zhongnanhai?

    The media in China is a frenzy with Japan hate. It's everywhere, everybody is talking about it. My wife is talking about the incidents regularly and there is talk about war with China. Though, this happens every few years.

    I understand human rights and rule of law etc and wish is was in China but I really dislike more the brainwashing that occurs through the media to push a PRC agenda.

    All these protests are allowed and let be and the govt compensate any property damage afterwards.

    They even had some idiot burn is Honda civic in protest, though, it is probably a good thing.
