Good move, Japan. Imprison them for a few months and confiscate their boat.

The Chinese have over-fished their own fishing grounds, and seem to think they have some divine right to enter other countries territory and over-fish their fishing areas too.

It doesn’t work like that in 2012. There are international laws that apply to all nations, and the Chinese need to get past the idea that they are a superior race who are above the law.

Chinese ESPIONAGE VESSEL disguised as a fishing boat. That boat was packed to the gills with electronic sensors and recording equipment – no fishermen carry that much sophisticated electronic gear. This is the same con the Soviets used when they used “fishing trawlers” as covert listening posts and radar/sonar probes.
