    “a change in [Japan’s] thinking would ripple throughout the region and could truly transform the region”

    Indeed. In short, as we’ve discussed, Chinese aggressiveness is resulting in its neighbors mostly uniting against it in response. But given history, could a too strong response by one of those countries, Japan, give the others pause and complicate the picture?

    And now for my deeply serious proposal: The UN should grant sovereignty over all those uninhabited disputed islands to Syria. The surrounding nations can then unite in the important humanitarian mission of bombing these islands to smithereens.

    I await my Nobel Peace Prize.
