Even though I am married to a beautiful Taiwanese lady from central Taiwan I insist to say that Senkakus belongs to Japan.

Those islands were a gift to Japan from the USA in exchange for the massacre of innocent women, children and elderly in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Actually, during the San Francisco Conference in 1951, Uncle Sam did not want to give the Diaoyu Islands to Communist China. They didn't bother with giving it to ROC in Taiwan either, as they didn't think the KMT would last there.

Dozens of fishing boats and six coast guard ships from Taiwan briefly entered waters close to a disputed island chain in the East China Sea, Japan's Coast Guard said on Tuesday.

The Coast Guard said the vessels had left Japanese territorial waters by noon local time after it issued a warning to the ships. It added that 10 Chinese surveillance ships were in the area but none had strayed into waters regarded by Japan as its territory.

The long-running dispute over the islands has flared up in recent months, triggering anti-Japanese protests in China.

Taiwan, China and Japan all claim ownership of the islands.

Taiwan news agency CNA said that up to 100 fishing boats, escorted by 10 coast guard ships, were making the voyage to assert local fishermen's rights to operate in the waters.

Wang Jinn-wang, head of Taiwan's Coast Guard Administration, was quoted as saying that the flotilla was "the biggest ever action" to support Taiwan's sovereignty over the islands.

CNA said the island chain lies 100 nautical miles northeast of Taiwan.

Earlier this month, the Japanese government bought the disputed islands -- known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China and Taiwan -- from the Japanese family that owned them for 2.05 billion yen (US$26.2 million).

The move infuriated China.

Protests erupted across dozens of Chinese cities, forcing the closure of a number of Japanese businesses and factories as residents railed against anything representative of Japan or its people.

China says its claim to the islands goes back hundreds of years. Japan says it saw no trace of Chinese control of the islands in an 1885 survey, so formally recognized them as Japanese sovereign territory in 1895.

Japan then sold the islands in 1932 to descendants of the original settlers. The Japanese surrender at the end of World War II in 1945 only served to cloud the issue further.

The islands were administered by the U.S. occupation force after the war. But in 1972, Washington returned them to Japan as part of its withdrawal from Okinawa.

Self-governing Taiwan, which Beijing regards as a breakaway province, also argues it has sovereignty over the islands.

Even though I am married to a beautiful Taiwanese lady and have two beautiful kids here and enjoy my nice university job complete with health insurance I still insist and state publicly and repeatedly again and again that Senkaku is Japan's.

Those islands were a gift to Japan from Uncle Sam
in exchange for the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as stated in certain state dept. memo.

That shit was a joke. It was like watching synchronized swimming, but with boats and Japan had water cannons. In the end of the day, the boats all went home. What a waste of fucking money and time.

And I heard the China fishing boats were even more pathetic since they just stayed along the borders and watched.

Seriously, the more stupid shit Taiwan and China keeps doing in this dispute, the more China and Taiwan are proving they dont deserve those islands. Just flat out embarressing.

This follows a rise in anti-Japanese protests, which have spread to close to 100 Chinese cities, according to The Christian Science Monitor. But the Japanese government has thus far been cautious in how it has dealt with the dispute, in part perhaps because of proximity of the flareup to the Sept. 18 anniversary of Japan’s invasion and occupation of Manchuria, something that spurs protests annually, island disputes aside.

Parts of the Chinese government and state-run commentariat understand the risks to China of an increasingly bellicose stance on the world stage. Over the last days, too, there has been a spate of calls in state news media for “rational” patriotism, such as some of these in the Global Times, which urged Chinese to “not turn to the dark side.”

But as the economy slows further, people are wondering: how far will the government turn to nationalism to strengthen its own legitimacy? Or is China’s overall economic rise strengthening that sentiment anyway, leading to a broad disregard for its international image? And is the possibility of conflict creeping closer in Asia?

Very interesting read on PM Noda's UN demands and declarations.

First he said that no territorial dispute exists in the Senkakus and Japan won't compromise BUT then he said that Japan is willing to let the IC hear the Dokdo case!

Hhhmmmm, I must be missing something here but then again that's for the PRC to figure out.

Beijing consistently acts like a roaring dragon to Taiwan but turns chicken that farts when confronted by Japan!

China aims 2000 missiles to the ROC, Taiwan but only sends marine fishery boats on holiday leave very far from Tiauyutai.

Next superpower eh? Must be South Korea, but certainly not China.

The PLA generals are getting very fat and very rich that they no longer can survive another 'Long March'.

Japanese News Is Full of Distortion And Fabrication

http://book.geocities.jp/japans_conspiracy/01...

The most evil aspect of the Japanese media is that the media have been completely successful in making people believe that the media are doing their jobs rightly, though the media are full of evil things.

You people here should listen to Prof. Michael Turnton cause he is an authority on the Senkakus and world history and used to work with the State Dept.
