Video: TLN Editor and Author Discuss Diaoyu Dispute on Huff Post Live

The protestors may have gone home for the time being, but the dispute between China and Japan over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands are far from over. TLN author Helen Gao and editor David Wertime were joined by NYU professor David Denoon and University of Pennsylvania professor Avery Goldstein on Huff Post Live to discuss the historical underpinnings of the dispute, as well as possible scenarios for American entanglement. Thanks to Helen for staying up in the wee hours of the night!
