US hardens its China stance

At the end of October, a group of former US government officials secured a meeting with Li Keqiang in Beijing. Less than a month before Li was officially announced as the Communist Party’s second in charge, it was a diplomatic coup but received little attention at the time.

More recently, however, the meeting has taken on more significance as the substance of the US message to China’s incoming leadership team became clear.

Former secretary of state Richard Armitage was among the quasi-official delegation which visited Japan and China in a bid to address the escalating territorial dispute over a group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea. He said the group had corrected a misunderstanding in Beijing.

“They would say,‘We appreciate your neutrality,’ and we would say,‘We’re not neutral. We just haven’t declared one way or the other’,” he told The Wall Street Journal last week.

The official position is that the US isn’t taking sides when it comes to the sovereignty of the islands known as the Diaoyus in China and the Senkakus in Japan. But the day after Armitage’s comments were made public, the US Senate did just that.

It voted unanimously to approve an amendment to the National Defence Authorisation Act that formally acknowledges Japan’s administration over the islands and reaffirms its commitment to Tokyo under the two countries’ defence treaty. Beijing responded through its state-run media with an editorial in the China Daily declaring it was “the wrong decision”.

“The US Senate is sending a dangerous signal that could have dire consequences for regional peace and stability,” the newspaper said.

“This could be taken as a loaded message that the US sees the Diaoyu Islands issue falling within the scope of its security pact with Japan and that it may be obliged to get involved in the dispute.”

This is now a dispute with three clear players. The US can no longer pretend to be on the sidelines.

It is also likely to remain unresolved until the new leadership teams in Tokyo, Washington and Beijing are bedded down.

Japan’s election on December 16 is expected to return a former prime minister, Shinzo Abe, to the post.

On the surface, Abe takes a more hardline approach to the islands dispute than Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. But most political analysts agree that Abe proved a pragmatist when it came to managing the China-Japan relationship while in office, despite his tough talk.

Meanwhile, it was Noda’s badly handled decision to privatise three of the disputed islands which triggered the recent flare-up in tensions.

China’s incoming president and premier, Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang, will formally take up their positions in March. Li’s meeting with the US delegation in October shows he is willing to engage with the US over the dispute. But when Xi met Defence Secretary Leon Panetta, he dismissed Japan’s purchase of the islands as a “farce” and said Tokyo needed to rein in its behaviour.

Adding to the movement among key players, Hillary Clinton will also leave the role of Secretary of State, as the Obama administration moves into its second term.

So, who will back down?

It’s hard to see China pulling back from its position. Both Li and Xi have been on the Politburo Standing Committee, the Communist Party’s top decision-making body, for the past five years, during which period China has increasingly flexed its muscles in the region.

While digging its heels in over the islands tussle with Japan, it has also ramped up its claims over a swathe of disputed territory in the South China Sea.

Just in the last few weeks, the provincial government that oversees China’s claims in the South China Sea changed the rules to allow its ships to search and repel foreign ships in the area if they are engaged in “illegal activities”.

And Beijing has begun issuing passports with new maps of China that include the disputed waters. This has angered rival claimants such as Vietnam and the Philippines.

Miro, you are just like Filipinos who try to resort to international laws to maximise gains while they themselves blatantly ignore their own constitutions and laws that restricts their land claims.

You want to talk about laws?

Check out Cairo Declaration, Potsdam Declaration, and surrender agreements signed between Japan and the allied powers.

Then you should know that Japan has no sovereignty rights over Dokdo Island, Diaoyu Islands, and Okinawa (or Ryukyu Islands).
But Japanese refuses to honour those treaties.

But of course, I respect your right of continuing to distort all such facts existing in the world.

You also can say that Nanking massacre (and other massacres) and comfort women never exist.

USA has no right to pass the admin. rights of Okinawa and Diaoyu Islands to Japan without consulting other members of the 5 allied powers.

So what USA did is illegal.

Second, even Japan claims that it obtained such territories from USA, but USA has time and again re-iterated that it has only allowed Japan to assume administrative rights over such territories since USA does not want to administer them directly.

USA repeatedly says its has not passed the sovereignty rights to Japan. Sovereignth rights are undecided.

Unfortunately, some dishonest unscrupulous people try to confound the issue with misinformation and misinterpretation to fulfill their own agenda.

Pregnant women were a target of murder, as they would often be bayoneted in the stomach, sometimes after rape. Tang Junshan, survivor and witness to one of the Japanese army’s systematic mass killings, testified:

The seventh and last person in the first row was a pregnant woman. The soldier thought he might as well rape her before killing her, so he pulled her out of the group to a spot about ten meters away. As he was trying to rape her, the woman resisted fiercely ... The soldier abruptly stabbed her in the belly with a bayonet. She gave a final scream as her intestines spilled out. Then the soldier stabbed the fetus, with its umbilical cord clearly visible, and tossed it aside

You CCP are very stupid or very dishonest.

Japan's apolgies:

1950s

1957: Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke. "We view with deep regret the vexation we caused to the people of Burma in the war just passed. In a desire to atone, if only partially, for the pain suffered, Japan is prepared to meet fully and with goodwill its obligations for war reparations. The Japan of today is not the Japan of the past, but, as its Constitution indicates, is a peace-loving nation."[5]
1957: Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke. "It is my official duty, and my personal desire, to express to you and through you to the people of Australia, our heartfelt sorrow for what occurred in the war."[6]


1960s

June 22, 1965: Minister of Foreign Affairs Shiina Etsusaburo. "In our two countries' long history there have been unfortunate times, it is truly regrettable and we are deeply remorseful" (Signing of the Treaty on Basic Relations between Japan and South Korea).

1970s

September 29, 1972: Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka. "The Japanese side is keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious damage that Japan caused in the past to the Chinese people through war, and deeply reproaches itself. Further, the Japanese side reaffirms its position that it intends to realize the normalization of relations between the two countries from the stand of fully understanding 'the three principles for the restoration of relations' put forward by the Government of the People's Republic of China. The Chinese side expresses its welcome for this" (Joint Communique of the Government of Japan and the Government of the People's Republic of China).[7]

[edit] 1980s

August 24, 1982: Prime Minister Zenko Suzuki. "I am painfully aware of Japan's responsibility for inflicting serious damages [on Asian nations] during the past war." "We need to recognize that there are criticisms that condemn [Japan's occupation] as invasion" (Press Conference on Textbook issue).[8]
August 26, 1982: Chief Cabinet Secretary Kiichi Miyazawa. "1. The Japanese Government and the Japanese people are deeply aware of the fact that acts by our country in the past caused tremendous suffering and damage to the peoples of Asian countries, including the Republic of Korea (ROK) and China, and have followed the path of a pacifist state with remorse and determination that such acts must never be repeated. Japan has recognized, in the Japan-ROK Joint Communique, of 1965, that the 'past relations are regrettable, and Japan feels deep remorse,' and in the Japan-China Joint Communique, that Japan is 'keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious damage that Japan caused in the past to the Chinese people through war and deeply reproaches itself.' These statements confirm Japan's remorse and determination which I stated above and this recognition has not changed at all to this day. 2. This spirit in the Japan-ROK Joint Communique, and the Japan-China Joint Communique, naturally should also be respected in Japan's school education and textbook authorization.

October 23, 1985: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone. "On June 6, 1945, when the UN Charter was signed in San Francisco, Japan was still fighting a senseless war with 40 nations. Since the end of the war, Japan has profoundly regretted the unleashing of rampant ultra nationalism and militarism and the war that brought great devastation to the people of many countries around the world and to our country as well" (Speech to the United Nations).
1989: Prime Minister Takeshita Noboru. "As we have made clear previously at repeated opportunities, the Japanese government and the Japanese people are deeply conscious of the fact that the actions of our country in the past caused suffering and loss to many people in neighboring countries. Starting from our regret and resolve not to repeat such things a second time, we have followed a course as a "Peace Nation" since then. This awareness and regret should be emphasized especially in the relationship between our countries and the Korean peninsula, our nearest neighbors both geographically and historically. At this opportunity as we face a new situation in the Korean peninsula, again, to all peoples of the globe, concerning the relationship of the past, we want to express our deep regret and sorrow (Speech in the Japanese Diet).

August 31, 1994: Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama. "Japan's actions in a certain period of the past not only claimed numerous victims here in Japan but also left the peoples of neighboring Asia and elsewhere with scars that are painful even today. I am thus taking this opportunity to state my belief, based on my profound remorse for these acts of aggression, colonial rule, and the like caused such unbearable suffering and sorrow for so many people, that Japan's future path should be one of making every effort to build world peace in line with my no-war commitment. It is imperative for us Japanese to look squarely to our history with the peoples of neighboring Asia and elsewhere. Only with solid basis of mutual understanding and confidence that can be built through overcoming the pain on both sides, can we and the peoples of neighboring countries together clear up the future of Asia-Pacific.... On the issue of wartime 'comfort women,' which seriously stained the honor and dignity of many women, I would like to take this opportunity once again to express my profound and sincere remorse and apologies. With regard to this issue as well, I believe that one way of demonstrating such feelings of apologies and remorse is to work to further promote mutual understanding with the countries and areas concerned as well as to face squarely to the past and ensure that it is rightly conveyed to future generations. This initiative, in this sense, has been drawn up consistent with such belief" (Statement by Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama on the "Peace, Friendship, and Exchange Initiative").[21]
