Toyota (TM) and Nissan (NSANY.OB) are cutting production in China due to a decline in demand that comes amid simmering tensions between Japan and China over a territorial dispute. Toyota and its Lexus brand are adjusting production down while Nissan's Chinese joint venture will stop making passenger vehicles through Oct. 7. Just another effect of the skirmish, one strategist says: "The market could be stuck with this for months to come."

    you can probably bring back the term sabotage..

     

    on another note.....this is a great example of a small item...the islands themselves are not that valueable....but how it has turned into a national unity and strength issue is amazing...these two countries will lose billions ..maybe trillions over pennies worth of dirt...

    China is evidently prepared to capitalize on and contribute to other nation's weaknesses. Not only the Japanese, South Koreans and Taiwanese but also North America and the EU will be confronting an expansionist China, fueled by our own profligacy.

    The conflict between China and Japan allows China to distract its population away from its deteriorating economic conditions.

     

    Do you realize that the fight at the iPhone factory in China was not a fight but a riot of 2000 with 40 injured and 5000 police needed to take control. China is falling apart.

    "China is falling apart."

     

    it's been falling apart for as long as I've been here, 17 years but it has never fallen apart, but emerges stronger ...
