My Comment: It seems as though there is a conflict on every corner of the world right now. But I have also found that some tensions are created to draw the worlds attention away from dark happenings also. While we are expecting this from Bible Prophecy, it’s important to not take your eyes off the middle east, like Iran and Israel and what’s really going on there. The dark rulers of the world seem to be pushing hard for a global war.
If it were only a matter of distance, the solution to a dispute over a small group of hotly contested islands in the East China Sea would be simple. Taiwan, which is just 200 kilometers (125 miles) away from the islands, would take the prize. The Chinese mainland is farther off, at 330 kilometers away, and the Japanese island of Okinawa even more distant, at 400 kilometers. Why then shouldn’t small Taiwan take control of the five uninhabited islands and three rock outcroppings, known as the Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan?
