World War V?

This article from the Japan Times (courtesy of Instapundit) raises interesting questions about Chinese intentions in the western Pacific. For Japan, which has generally eschewed military activity in the 60 years since the end of WWII, to have developed such contingency plans against Chinese incursions is troubling. I find it troubling because it implies that the Chinese have developed (or will soon develop) an ability to project force beyond its own coastline. Though I hope it will not come to pass, this may be the forebodings of WWV (if the Cold War was WWIII and the War on Terror is WWIV).
