US Vice-President Joe Biden was correct when he said in Tokyo on Tuesday, there is "the need for crisis management mechanisms" for the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, because, as he pointed out, "the prospect for miscalculation and mistake is too high".

First of all, despite trying to present the image of being an impartial mediator, Washington has obviously taken Japan's side.
