Don't Fence Me In
There is always a song that is appropriate... Here is Bing Crosby, 1944, Don't Fence Me In with the Andrew Sisters.
Roy Rodgers also recorded it, and it was on the Red Hot and Blue Aids CD released, with Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop.
Loved it then, glad to find it again.
Anyway, it was a tune that stuck in my mind over the past few days, what with all the nonsense about tiny islands...
Lost Laowai has the latest (and a good map):
Explaining the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands “dispute”
Which links to Kyle, aka The Manchurian Candidate:

So rather than arguing this way or that, Kurashi will stay neutral, and propose that the islands and the oceans nearby are set aside as Eco reserves, call them Biosphere safety zones or Don't fence me in-zones, or just to stay sane, call them Stay sane-zones.
Maps, of course can be altered. The View from Taiwan has some images: Paper on Parade
More photos from the Kabuki act between Japan Coast Guard ships and Taiwan Coast Guard ships from China Smack. If you care to read more about the Japanese that started all this by renting ships and sailing all the way, here is another post with lots of photos.
