International law, especially the Treaty of Surrender of the Empire of Japan of 1945, legally recognizes China as the owner of all the islands and territories seized by Japan through force and unequal treaties, which include Diaoyudao, taken by Japan from China in January 1895, by force. The real lawless one is Japan which insists on its non-existent "right to administer" Diaoyudao without the permission of the owner to do so. The choice is up to Abe to make. Accept the 1945 Treaty of Surrender of the Japanese Empire, which acknowledges the Potsdam Proclamation, which in turn accepts the Cairo Declaration of 1943, and Japan will have eternal peace and prosperity, as a friend and trading partner of China and Korea.
Reject it by amending the Pacifist Constitution of 1946, and Japan is back to August 8, 1945. A fateful moment 61 years ago, when Japan was vacillating between surrender and utter destruction. Now, back in play in the 21st century.
August 8, 2016, is a very apt date chosen by Emperor Akihito to hint that he wanted to retire from active service as Japan's Symbol of State, rather than be elevated to being its Sovereign ruler. Because, he knows, Abe's move is not motivated by love for Japan, but logically, is the most comprehensive betrayal of Japan on behalf of his patrons, for as surely as the sun rises from the east and sets in the west, a return of Japan to its imperial days will spell the surest doom for its people, which should be evident to all but the narrow-minded self-serving militarists.
