#1 TOPIX, WORLD NEWS > JAPAN'S RIGHT [Wing]- GOING NUKE?

"Post-US", "Mahanist" Rising China wants protection for its desired future PLA Milbases on TAIWAN, + unfettered, unchallenged access into WESTPAC, ETC. PACOAS = MAJOR TRADE ROUTES vee the OKINAWA-TAIWAN-PHIL straits.

It behooves China, then to reunify ASAP wid Taiwan, or in the alternate to "control" Taiwan in place of the US, before installation of US-led GMD-TMD is complete + before Japan regains the right to Nuclear Weapons.

Again, at this point in time China = East Asia [NEAsia + SCS] may be more dangerous that Risng Iran.

FYI BEIJING > is denying alleged Reports from CHINESE MEDIAS of Party-Govt collapse or near-collapse in Xinjiang + other West China provinces.

IFF TRUE, ADVANTAGE = RADICAL ISLAM = MILITANT-TERROR GROUPS.

Beijing may become more nervous or twitchy than it already is vee islands dispute wid Japan + ASEAN.
