Japan and China are increasing cooperation:
Unlikely allies Japan, China come together for regional stability
Dec 25, 2011
BEIJING Death of North Korean leader Kim Jong II and the uncertainty about the new regime, on Sunday saw unlikely allies Japan and China reach out to each other in a bid to promote regional stability…
Marking the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between their countries, in 2012 both Japan and China are keen to work towards building closer cooperation.
To realize this objective, officials from both countries Sunday signed memorandums of understanding on youth exchanges and setting up an investment fund for promoting clean energy and environmental protection.
This cooperation is not unexpected as it is quite biblically likely.
Notice something that came out later today after I posted the above:
New York Times – 26 December 2011
BEIJING — China and Japan have agreed to start direct trading of their currencies, officials announced during a visit here by Japan’s prime minister
A lot of shifting, both militarily and economically is happening now in Asia. This move by Japan and China also indicates that both are more and more distrusting the US dollar. A shift is happening.
Despite their historical differences and often mutual antagonisms, the Bible strongly indicates that Japan and China, which would be part of what the Bible calls “kings of the sunrise” (Revelation 16:12) will cooperate in the end. Hence, current cooperative efforts would seem to help be setting up future cooperation.
Korea is likely to also cooperate in more in the future. Many Asian nations will support the 200,000,000 man army that Revelation 9:16 discusses.
