Yeah, and trying to claim Okinawa too is just silly. It's like looking for any excuse to start a war.
According to Cairo Declaration and Potsdam Declaration and the surrender agreements signed by Japan, Okinawa is not a piece of Japan territory.

It is a piece of territory wrongfully occupied by Japan imperial govt and therefore must be returned to its owners upon Japan's defeat and surrender to the victorious Allied Powers.

Japan and USA violated these international agreements and declarations later.

I'm no historian on ww2, but from what I quickly went over of the two declarations I did not see where Okinawa was explicitly stated to be one of those islands taken off the Japanese. Japan was allowed to keep its 4 main islands and some minor ones, as had been announced in Cairo declaration. I think Okinawa was Japanese territory since before both world wars.. This claim on Okinawa to me is not smart, unless one is seeking conflict.

Today, which country owns the sovereignty over Okinawa.

Did USA give the sovereignty over Okinawa to Japan? What rights that USA gave to Japan in the 1970's? Same thing for the Diaoyu Islands /Senkaku Islands.

I think the USA is very explicit in the rights that were and were not passed to Japan.

Good enough if you go over the Cairo Declaration and Potsdam Declarations. Who were the parties involved in these declarations?

When the USA decided to pass certain rights to Japan over Diaoyu Island and Okinawa to Japan, did USA consult all the Allied Powers participating in the Cairo and Potsdam Declarations? Some countries have been deliberately excluded from meeting by USA.

The actions of USA and the act of Japan receiving these islands are therefore illegitimate.

USA never own these islands and should have no rights to give away someone's assets (the islands) to Japan.

There is a U.S base there right now, but it is a prefecture of Japan, with Japanese people that vote in their representatives. It belonged to Japan before both world wars, so for me that is the right USA had in giving it back to Japanese administration.
