Unless there is a vast ocean of oil and gas in the vicinity of those islands then this fight proves exactly how childish the Chinese government is. I don't know if that's a new phenomenon that followed the communist regime or if their juvenile sense of entitlement is a product of their sudden rise to power, but this kind of behavior will eventually backfire.

That being said, these requirements are quite basic and effortlessly attained when compared to the ones you find in popular women's magazines in the states. If this list is a realistic depiction of what Japanese women generally check for, i would say they are being either overly generous or pragmatic.

Men and women have too many dreams nowadays, we set the bar above a level that exists within the confines of reality. We were raised on the Disney-mentality, that we can achieve anything no matter what and that we will all find our "true love" one day. Don't get me wrong, goals are great to have. It is a level of success in something you wish to achieve within a certain time-frame, but there's that and then there's the undeserved sense of entitlement we are brought up on, that the universe somehow owes us something, love being one of them. That we have to even learn how to appreciate life as it is is sad. Somewhere along the way we got too comfortable and stopped adapting ourselves, instead relying on the finite forms of our environment to always change for us.
