Will a Small Property Dispute Cause WWIII, Ctd

Jim Fallows notes the increasingly heated protests in China over a territorial dispute with Japan (the controversy concerns the uninhabited Diaoyu/Senkakus Islands).  The banner in this picture, taken outside a Chinese Audi dealership, reads, "Even if China becomes nothing but tombstones, we must exterminate the Japanese; even if we have to destroy our own country, we must take back the Diaoyu Islands."  Yikes.

Audichina

Fallows also states that these seemingly state-sponsored protests against the Japanese reveal "the difference between the relentlessly surging-ahead Chinese economy as so often portrayed in American journalistic and political discussion (eg the article discussed here), and the many, many signs of political, cultural, financial, and even moral strain emerging in the real-world China that is the stage for the current protests."
