Korea, China, and now Russia. What’s wrong with the Japanese?
Two months ago, in September, the Japanese had a row with the Koreans over the Dokdo islands.
In October, the Japanese had a dispute with China over the Daioyu islands.
It’s now November and the Japanese are having a spat with Russia over the Kuril islands.
What’s wrong with the Japanese? Why can’t the Japanese stop provoking its neighbors? How about a Korean-Chinese-Russian alliance to put the Japanese in their place?
So much for the Warmongering Chinese theory lol
give an example from 1949 until now, China hold any wars?
The Japanese stance is not surprising. IMO, the Japanese have never been able to shrug off their “imperial hangover”. It has remained dormant, but has never ever been eradicated. Therein lies the roots of the problem.
This is a very simple issue:
1) Did China discover the Daiyou islands? Yes.
2) Did Japan, through the power of the gun and imperialism, steal the Diayou islands from China circa 1895? Yes.
3) Does China want the Diayou islands back? Yes.
4) Are Pentagon hawks providing the necessary military support to enable Japan to continue its illegal occupation of the Daiyou islands? Yes.
5) Is the military technological gap closing between China and the Pentagon hawks? Yes.
6) Ergo, within a few decades, China will push the Pentagon hawks out of East Asia and reclaim its Daiyou islands.
This is inevitable. Justice will not be denied. Daiyou islands were discovered by China, belonged to China, stolen by Japan at the point of a gun, and will be recovered by China.
The islands are uninhabited; this is an issue of strategic importance to the military and of no direct importance otherwise. There is no one to make popular referendum as to which nationality they consider themselves part of. The first mention of the islands is in Chinese texts but the islands were formally annexed by Japan. It’s difficult to say who they should belong to.
Of course, it is in our interest as Indians that Japan maintain its control.
Although I wish it were Indians setting such a strong precedent.
If it belongs to CHina, then it should go to China. We shouldn’t let our interests come into play here.
and who says it belongs to China? Well, in our ancient history, we have recorded about the moon, So should we send the Americans the bill for using moon for landing. The rent etc?
Those islands are uninhabitated, but if whoever controls now, controls them should be the rule. After all in past history, situations have changed, and that is how history is, In past, Greeks did rule all of turkey and even Cyprus, so that way, the greeks can claim half of Europe and they would have to argue with France, Spain, Italy, British, the Macedonians and the Russians…
Historic precedent would indicate that the PRC will always put their interests above India whether the resolution to the issue at hand is just or unjust or whether it should involve the PRC at all. So to uphold a precedent of reciprocity India should set the same standard against the PRC’s interests.
When the islands were possibly discovered, the Chinese might be group of kingdoms which were fighting each other, so who owns the islands?
India might claim that we discovered Sri Lanka and so we should have the right over it,
In present times, the Japanese control the islands, the Chinese hold claims,
so China can claim whatever they want, Sorry, it does not make sense,
Best is to have discussion rather than claim…
Further on the same way, China should withdraw from Tibet, as it was a free country that was over run by PLA,
Since Tibet is more recent issue, let them solve the Tibet issue and them claim those islands,
Guess that is Fair .
You look horrible! And you make us sick!
India annexed the Sikkim in 1975.
i am feel very bad for china…..
Don’t kid yourself. China has done as much and worse to populations within its own country, including inflicting sadistic torture against certain religions and monks. Chinese culture is great, I have nothing against it, but with historic precedent, it can be no less sadistic sometimes.
Only difference is Chinese was weak and got taken advantage of this time. Traditionally China was the superpower of their subcontinent and was responsible for the aggression in their neighborhood.
