I hear that Iran has been flying their new super secret stealth fighter through that Chinese zone several times a day. That’ll cook General Tso’s Chicken.
Sure, but they’ll be back in an hour...

Too late. Their “air zone” is already a joke.
Sure am glad we stopped production of the F22 right about now.
“The Prince of Japan has begun a six month study of the rare Sand Jumper Crab in the remote Senkaku Islands, supported by 100 MANPADs porters from the JSDF...”
Yes, a shooting war with China where resident Obama is running things will improve the situation for everyone...
oh boy, this could get interesting
So? WWIII is about on us now. Might as well get it over.
