Asia Territorial Turmoil
FILE - In this Aug. 10, 2012 file photo South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, center, looks at a national flag upon his arrival at islands called Dokdo in Korea and Takeshima in Japan. The disputed ownership of these islands as well as others in the region is inflaming nationalist fervor from the cold North Pacific to the tropical South China Sea. In recent weeks, these long-simmering tensions have returned to a boil, with violent protests in Chinese cities, a provocative island junket by South Korea's lame-duck president, and Japan's government reportedly planning to buy disputed islands from their private owners.
