I cannot see it escalating but I hope neither side does anything stupid...
That region is a powder keg. If either side does anything stupid, it might allow China to take advantage of the situation for their own ends...

It is sort of like Kashmiri...

Thanks for the link. If anything, more targets for scenario designers I suppose.

I don't see it escalating either, but it certainly constitutes a strategic message. It's Russia saying, "Screw you, Japan, we're not going anywhere anytime soon," and is not helpful to the ongoing talks betweeen Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Vladimir Putin.
