What’s up with China? A territorial dispute with Japan risks US involvement in a confrontation that could get really ugly.
Former U.S. ambassador to China Jon Huntsman echoes what lots of folks in Washington are thinking, that tensions in the Asia-Pacific region are getting scary, involving Korea and Russia.
“I worry about the military maneuvers in crowded airspaces and sea lanes” where an incident can escalate into something “beyond anyone’s ability to then de-escalate it,” Huntsman told Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
US officials have expressed growing concern about tensions in the region, particularly over territorial disputes that relate in part to access to resources such as undersea oil reserves.
Japan says Russian fighter jets intruded on its airspace, which Russia’s Defense Ministry denied.
Japan also claims that Chinese ships used weapons-targeting radar on a Japanese destroyer and helicopter last month near the islands claimed by both countries. China denies it.
War against China? Believe it or not, Washington is talking about it.
