if we follow japanese logic that there is no territorial dispute in tiauyutai because japan has effective control then there is also no dispute that dokdo belongs to korea and the northern kurile isles is russian land.

these imperial mentality is the curse of the japanese nation.

The statement by Japan PM Noda at the UN that there will be no compromise regarding Diauyutai or Senkaku is an open declaration of war against China.

Japan have effectively put China in a corner.

Tokyo certainly cannot try this open slap in the face with Seoul because Koreans are not cowards and we back our words with our fist!

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 and 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?

Taiwan has been very good to me, giving me a rich and pretty Taiwanese wife from Lugang, have a respected Universuty job, treated like a celebrity with my blogging and biking and TV appearences, I still insist that the Diauyu is really Senkaku since it belongs to Japan.

I'm a historian so it's clear that Taiwan and China only claims the islands during the 70's .
I can't say anything about events during the 1800's because I's not born at that time yet.

Though Taiwanese treat me real good here I insist on publicly declaring that they are stupid in claiming the Senkakus .

Taiwan military is weak and have no chance against Japanese military supported by American marines.

Don't Taiwanese get that?
