Beijing Begins Questioning Japan's Sovereignty Over Okinawa

Even as a dispute rages over the tiny islets known as the Senkakus (Diaoyudao), Beijing has begun floating trial balloons about asserting a claim over the entire Ryukyu island chain of which Okinawa is the main island.

China Daily, the official Communist Party organ, suggested Thursday that China should consider expanding its claim beyond the Senkakus (Diaoyudao) to include the Ryukyu chain of over 100 islands, of which Okinawa is the main island. Surprisingly, the more grandiose claim is actually better supported by well documented historical events than its more modest claim over the Senkakus.

The Ryukyu Kingdom had been a protectorate of both China and Japan since around the 16th century. In 1879 Japanese forces occupied the island as the two nations began struggling for domination of northeast Asia. Under the 1895 Treaty of Shimonoseki the Qing court formally ceded the Ryukyus to Japan along with Taiwan and the Penghu islands off Taiwan’s west coast.

After World War II broke out in the Pacific Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist government declared the abolition of the Treaty of Shimonoseki. The 1943 Cairo Declaration stated that “all the territories that Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Formosa and The Pescadores [Penghu Islands], shall be restored to the Republic of China.” The same objective was affirmed in the July 1945 Potsdam Declaration by the Allies in anticipation of their imminent victory over Japan. These two declarations essentially limited Japan’s territory to its four main islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku.

yes, yes, Ryukyu(okinawa) should be independent, free of usa military base...

the united states of america is wrong again when they say they recognize japan sovereignty over Ryukyu..they are wrong

Ryukyu is a independent nation and kingdom...Ryukyu has good relationship with China. Ming dynasty, Ching dynasty

Japan invade Ryukyu...kill Ryukyu king, during world war 2, the vicious japanese use Ryukyu island as their heavy battle ground.

Ryukyu although it is an independent kingdom, but their population is small, but they have their own culture.

american forces are being use by the vicious japanese to destroy and wipe out the Ryukyu race...

the battle of Ryukyu(okinawa), majority of the Ryukyu people die, the japanese military is happy, they wipe out their culture and race into extermination. just like hitler want to do with jews..

the remaining Ryukyu people now must seek independent. no more usa base, no more war, so that Ryukyu can preserve their race and culture.

Ryukyu independent, Ryukyu independent, Ryukyu independent.

Perhaps Hiroshima would be more appropriate?
