I feel as if though Japan and China will run into some scuffles in the near future. They still have some World War 2 tension that will linger. But I think it is even deeper now as China rises to be a world power. They will flex their muscles. The question is will it evolve into full blown war or not? I hope not but it is a possibility. They need to take steps now to prevent those things. They need closer ties and need to link economies even more.
