China preparing for armed conflict 'in every direction'

Anti-ship missile Dong Feng 21 has already achieved "initial operational capability", and this is presumably a good deal better than the old Sunburns, nuclear versions of which could already destroy US aircraft carriers. This summer China objected to US plans to deploy one of its nuclear supercarriers, the USS George Washington, into the Yellow Sea off the Korean peninsula. China can already nuke these carriers AFAIK.

Many of its neighbours in the Asia-Pacific, including Japan described China's military build-up as a "global concern" this month.

IMO: Incursions of China into India have caused concern for years, as per earlier entries this blog. China's clumsy attempts at 18th Century type colonial exploitation are historic, and date back at least to the more than laissez-faire methods of Nixon and Kissinger. How long before the Japanese, for self-protection, will again need to occupy Manchoukuo? Not that long if China does not show some common sense about such matters as North Korea, I dare say.
