China has astutely taken the measure of Japan and Australia and decided that fighting across the entire perimeter of the South China Sea will not yield any conclusive victory for her as far as the protection of her sovereignty is concerned, and would  consume too much of her money, power and time, even if in the long run, China should win it.

China has taken the cauldron that Japan has been stirring in the South China Sea and placed it at Japan's doorsteps, at Diaoyudao islands, erroneously called "Senkaku" by the Japanese government.

It is all coming to a head.  Sooner or later.  The final chapter of WWII, and the last clause of the Potsdam Proclamation of 1945, will very likely be triggered when the Pacifist Constitution is voided by the Abe government.

The road to Hanoi runs through Dioayudao.

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.

THE COLONIAL GOVERNMENT OF ABE EXPOSED FOR ALL JAPANESE TO SEE

The Emperor's Second Abdication of August 8, 2016, straddling the twin anniversaries of the atomic bombing of Hiroshiima (August 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (August 9, 1945) is a clear restatement of the Imperial Rescript of Emperor Hirohito that Japan will never again attack or invade any neighboring country, as embodied in Article 9 of the Pacifist Constitution.  It is a warning to Abe and his cabinet that the consequence of failure to abide by this Imperial Rescript is a continuation of the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that was halted by the sacrifice of his father, Emperor Hirohito, of giving up the temporal and spiritual authority of the throne, which should not be reversed by the current government, either by his previously held authority while yet on the throne, or by realistic considerations of the consequences of utter and complete destruction spelled out in the Potsdam Proclamation as the alternative to Japan's surrender.

Abe, under the old imperial system of August 15, 1945, would be considered a disloyal subject of the emperor, and under the Pacifist Constitution, would be considered a disloyal leader of the Japanese people.

This, in effect, exposes Abe and cabinet as actually being puppets of a foreign power, pretending to act in the names of the Japanese emperor or of the Japanese constitution, both of which, they actually do not obey.
