Is Japan another Tibet ? Why Thieving Senkaku from Japan isn't all that easy

            This is a comment in response to a well written but hopelessly one sided opinion on The New York Times,

An excerpt from the original entry,

"For months now the waters around Japan have been teeming with territorial disputes, first with South Korea and now with China and Taiwan. The virulence of this latest Chinese-Japanese spat is chilling, and there’s no end in sight.

Neither history nor geography are clear on the complicated ownership of the tiny islets called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China. In this sensitive period of political transitions in both countries, wisdom would have dictated restraint. But in April, Shintaro Ishihara, the influential governor of Tokyo, threatened to buy the disputed islands from their private owners. His taunting forced the normally measured prime minister, Yoshihiko Noda, to take a hard stance by announcing the national government’s purchase of the isles."

Ref. "

Is Japan another Tibet ?

        I understand the geography seems quite clear but may be there has been some dust being deliberately kicked up to conveniently rewrite/repaint history. 

        It's really strange and troubling to understand why the author seems to entertain and blindly support the claims by China and Taiwan when the islands have historically been controlled by Japan. It's easy to manufacture a dispute by claiming what belongs to another, it is ridiculous to support, tolerate and promote people who resort to staging and engaging in such devious tactics.

        Given the regime, its ambitions and some serious intelligence leaks, one can't help but make and permanently seal a defensive purchase. This is yet another case of more bullying by China. To much of the international community Tibet remains a forgotten story and a shamelessly neglected Human tragedy. Was is it the same sense of legitimacy that prevailed when they tried to lay claim to Taiwan as well? If it weren't for American intervention, it would have been just another Tibet. Which has led to the Taiwan coast being one of the most heavily fortified coast line in the world.

It's really amazing, amusing and pathetic at times to see just how many here in the West are busy su*king up to the leadership in China.

         This is a comment in response to a post seen on United Nations For a Free Tibet,

"When Michele spoke, China was listening:
one said: “I’m not an American, so why, when I’ve finished listening to this speech, do I have such an urge to cry?”


         It's always very important to understand why you can put the Huffington post (its corporate owners), the DNC(some of its leaders) and the Communist Regime all in one basket without bringing the oppressed People of China into the picture. The regime has proved time and again, and knows all too well how to take down sites or censor the internet when needed, they are also just as good when it comes to pushing and promoting news and propaganda to impress sentiments that are in their best interest. That said the President here has faced obstacles mostly of a political nature and otherwise, these are beyond merely challenging. A lot of people here can share and relate to everything said in her speech and the President is just as deserving and likable when it comes down to that. But governance and politics in America is so much more than just what is within the capacity of one man even if it is the President. I wish all of the hopefuls well. The coming few months promises to be very interesting indeed.
