Inside Story – Japan and China: A clash of empires?



As the Asian giants pursue a war of words over the East China Sea islands, we ask if military conflict is inevitable. To discuss this, Inside Story presenter Hazem Sika is joined by guests: Andrew Leung, an independent China analyst; Gordon Chang, an East Asian political analyst and author of The Coming Collapse of China; and Tina Burrett, a professor of political science at Temple University, Japan Campus.

  1. China does not have to be too concerned about Japan. In 2030; most of Japan will be a DEAD ZONE due to its FUKUSHIMA RADIATION.
    China does not have to worry about TAIWAN . Taiwan by following the democratic system of the West will eventually deterioate like USA with its democracy of HIGH INEQUALITY.
    North Korea and South Korea will either destroy each other and become a DEAD ZONE due to its use of nuclear weapons or turn into a weak country. Many South Koreans have been moving out of South Korea for decades into safer countries.
    Philippines will remains stable and non involved to any conflicts as it really has no military strength to defend its own territory which is too difficult to defend in the first place as it is consist of more than 7000 islands .
    The Philippine people are Christians and do not believe in violence as a solution. The Filipinos leave all their problems to GOD. The Philippines is OPHIR; THE LAND OF THE BEGINNING. THE GARDEN OF EDEN.

  2. Japan go go go, im support you.
    Poor China!!

  4. JAPANESE HAVE TO BE WISE ITS TRUE FACT CHINESE AND JAPANESE DID NOT LIKES EACH OTHERS. NEW ERA APPEARS ON WORLD ECONOMIC SECTOR BUT QUESTION IS DID U. S.

  5. Japan is the war Criminal at all time and So far , they are using the American to Against the Chinese ,

  6. China and Japan conflict are pretty much like the story of Jacob and Esau ,

  7. Eventually, Japan will have to get nuclear weapons to counter balance the aggressive behaviour and expansionism and military posture of china . Democratic nations are beholden to their people , china is beholden to their party, not their people.

  8. China , has a large military but because of their undemocratic system, their armed forces are very much not that well trained or capable as the small Japanese forces. Let's remember that Vietnam beat up china during the 80's, and Havana is very much a better foe than Vietnam.

  9. China would be democratic if it wasn't for Japan………….

    "I think the problem is not a Japanese one, It's a Chinese one."

    Do you know what that means?

    Chinese government needs a war outside, otherwise it'll start inside.

    Anyway, it's been more than 3 years and it hasn't happened yet.

    Keep your close attention to what;s happening in China which we hardly get any.
    When it happen, it'll happen out of blue, like the fall of USSR did.
