Japan Says Two Russian Su-27s Violated Its Airspace Over Another Territorial Dispute With Moscow

 Tokyo's now scrambling jets to chase off two of its neighboring rivals, Russian and China.

The island dispute with China has been simmering for months, deep to the south off Okinawa and into the East China Sea, but now it looks like Russia is pressing its own dispute with Tokyo, and that could make for a new and interesting dynamic throughout the region.
