China will lose in a skirmish with Japan as China's technology is still 10 to 20 years behind. The only way China can win is through a big war, but then the small island is not worth it.

So, China can't win, can't fight. At the end, Japan wins.

Forget about war. China presses the economic button and Japan's Game Over.

Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp lost US$ 20 Billion last year. A Chinese boycott will put Sharp out of business this year.

These islands were privately owned and belonged to neither Japan or China. The private owner has freely chosen to sell them to Japan--sorry China. This is totally fair. China had no claim whatsoever anyway. If I own a piece of land I can sell it to whomever I choose--what part of this don't you understand?

China has also lost it's recent crazed bid to takeover part of the Philippines. This is totally correct and just as China had no claim whatsoever---China might as well claim the USA state of Iowa---that is how nuts their claim is on the Philippines territory.

China recently put a military garrison and small town on a disputed Island which was a clear violation and provocation. This is disgusting and typical of Chinese behavior.

Japan will soon own these Island outright. The rightful owner has agreed to sell them to Japan.

The rightful owner could have sold them to China but chose Japan instead.

China loses.

China also recently lost it's attempt to takeover part of the Philippines

When the Japanese transaction is complete Japan will welcome and celebrate these Islands as a total, complete and inalienable part of Japan

Instead of fighting a war over these uninhabited islands, it's better to support Okinawa independence movement. Then the island will be returned to Taiwan.
