Rumors of War - King of the North

Putin statement on Kuril Islands, U.S. military rattles Japan -
UPI reports: "A statement from Russian President Vladimir Putin about U.S. military buildup in the disputed Kuril Islands is raising concerns in Japan, despite plans in Tokyo to increase economic cooperation in the territories. [...] Russia and Japan never signed a peace treaty after the four islets in the Kuril archipelago fell under Soviet control at the end of World War II."

Comment: That's a clever strategy on Putin's part to engender doubt and insecurity in Japan.
