Abe insist that there is no territorial dispute with China and Taiwan vis a vis Diauyu/Tiauyutai/Senkakus.

If so then why not develop the islands and station troops there like what South Korea did in Dokdo!

Or Abe should do what Pres. Lee did and land in one of the isles via helicopter!

Abe and Japan not being able to do this means to the world that there is indeed a territorial dispute and that Japan is the guilty party just like in Dokdo!

Japan's denying this dispute is way too typical just like their denying that the Comfort Women were victims, there insisting that the Nanjing massacre is a fake, that their nuclear power stations are safe!

Indeed panthers can't change their stripes to zebras!
