Violations have been committed on both sides and though I see your reasoning, two wrongs don't make a right.<quoted text>
Again u misunderstood the issue.
Under the Japanese laws, the island already belongs to a Japanese family (China do not recognize that).
The Mayor to Tokyo wanted to buy it for Tokyo and station troops on it to violate the status quo and provoke China.
The central Gov of Japan then stepped in to buy the islands first to keep the Island from the Mayor of Tokyo thus avoid provoking China.
The central Gov of Japan is very weak and there is a surged in nationalism in Japan encouraged by USA. They want to abolish the post war peace constitution so that Japan can re-arm. This is a very short sighted move by the Americans, but they are scared to death about China.
We don't know how far future Gov of Japan will go in violating the status quo.
When you say Japan is weak in what way do you mean that, because I need to know in order to proceed with this debate?
If you say Japan is weak do you mean because they have no political direction, or do you mean they are weak militarily?
