    Japan should reconstitute its military and develop thermonuclear weapons, oh wait, they already did.

    Why else would they run a breeder reactor?

  2. I know it can be difficult with Americas short attention span culture, but let's try to think long term,( 50 yrs down the road) like the Chinese do. China does not want to do anything to upset it's exports to US and Europe. The Chinese consumers can't absorb all of China's production, yet, so they need other markets to demand their goods.

    China is going through some difficult growing pains. So, an occasional incident with the Chinese people's favorite, most reliable bad guy, Japan, is good to shift the population's eyes away from growing internal problems. As Japan is a big market for Chinese products also, I expect this to die down and de-escalate once Japan has held the Captain long enough to save face, and not be seen as backing down to China. They will probably release him near the end of the month.

    How do you "MOVE"? I'm assuming you don't have any industrial experience, but it is not as easy as it sounds. A lot of factors come into play.
