Twitter reports

that Japan has released the captain of the Chinese boat involved in the Senkaku dispute. Ohh, this does not look good for domestic politics, I fear.


  1. Was there really much doubt that Japan would blink first? Still, interesting that they caved so quickly. Awfully afraid of China, aren't we?

  2. I actually thought they'd stand stronger. Obama seemed to be backing Japan, and I thought the DPJ was going to put on a bit of a tougher face after the election. I thought they'd at least wait until the 29th.
