"...this paper will address how China’s military campaign to take the Senkaku Islands would likely unfold, to include China’s campaign objectives; the military and para-military forces it will employ and how the PRC is preparing those forces; how it might counter U.S. intervention; how it would occupy and control the islands."
This paper provides eight specific recommendations to mitigate the risk of the increasingly threatening situation in the East China Sea.
