    Yes, it sounds staged. The PRC is upset because of Japan's recent agreement with America to defend the Taiwanese. We should move rapidly to contain China by enriching our relationships with Japan, S. Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Singapore, and Australia. Regarding Japan, we could do this: http://www.usmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?p=265938#post265938

    "Koizumi is a dog! Dogs are no good!"

    Obviously untrainted protest rookies. They need to take lessons from socialist protestors in Berkely. What the hell kind of chant is that?

    "Hundreds watched as dozens of protesters smashed all of its windows and shouted "Japanese whores" at the workers inside."


    There. Now they're getting the hang of it.

    They are turning violent. China seems to want to calm it down, but with the numbers in China if the people decide on a mob mentality, there could be problems against more than the Japanese. China may be having an inkling that they have ignited something out of their control:
