Just like the Chinese will also take the Senyaku's also Japan can not fight a military struggle against either country look at how now the JSDF forces are being pushed probed and running away scared Another word is called Chicken

I don't see the JSDF running away from anything. Every intrusion is met and challenged in proper. Relations with Russia are such that there is no basis for a "military strggle". China on the other hand has a ing history of running away from enemies. And China is no match for the JSDF apart from launching a nuclear war which would result in decimation by the United States. China is deayjly afraid of the U.S. because despite their barking, they have yet to take the Senkakus after being told that they would face the U.S. China has not even been able to take Taiwan for 60 years because of U.S.military superiority.

All of that superiority is evaporating quite quickly though. The U.S has spent and continues to spend far too much money in the Middle East. Its time to leave the two warring Muslim factions to sort it out among themselves. The only thing the U.S should be wary of is WMD's and an attack Israel, who to be honest, can probably defend themselves at this point. They are a nuclear power in their own right. The U.S should stick to the Pacific & Indian Oceans and focus on protecting and creating great relationships with their Asian and Oceanic allies. I would go so far as too suggest that they should even let the Europeans deal with Russia. The E.U as a bloc is tremendously wealthy with a great deal of technical expertise. They need to be encouraged very firmly to spend a greater % of their GDP on defense. A threat to slowly pull back from Europe would be a good move for the U.S
