Office of Naval Intelligence: “China preparing for short, sharp war with Japan.”

This has been building since the 1930's....it would seem to be inevitable at this point...

In a controversial address to the West 2014 Naval Institute Symposium in San Diego in early 2014, Capt. James Fanell, formerly Chief of Naval Intelligence for the Pacific Fleet said: “We have witnessed a massive and amphibious military enterprise and concluded that the People’s Liberation Army has been given a new task, to conduct a short, sharp war to destroy Japanese forces in the East China Sea, following with what can only be expected a seizure of the Senkaku, or even an island in the southern Ryukyu.”

Capt. Fanell’s reward for delivering this timely information?

Being removed from office, because his announcement “embarrassed China.”

Holy hell.

“Fanell also had harsh words to describe actions of China’s Coast Guard, which he calls a “fulltime maritime harassment service” [lmao, so true] specifically designed to advance China’s strategic interests in the East and South China Seas…It is perhaps ironic that while Fanell was speaking in San Diego, just a few miles to the north, Japanese Ground Self Defense Force troops were storming the beaches of the US Marine Corps base at Camp Pendleton. They were part of a newly constituted force of soldiers trained in amphibious landing techniques to potentially recapture Japanese islands seized by the Chinese, presumably in a “short, sharp war.”


“As a senior US government official recently stated, there is growing concern that China’s pattern of behaviour in the South China Sea reflects an incremental effort by China to assert control of the area contained in the so-called ‘nine-dash line,’ despite the objections of its neighbors and despite the lack of any explanation or apparent basis under international law,” Capt. Fannell said.
