A sign that a higher intelligence has finally surfaced to the top, telling his countrymen that "winning Senkaku (meaning pinnacle islands) is like Japan falling on its own sword" or better yet, in Chinese, that "swallowing Diaoyudao is like a fish being fatally hooked onto a bait it can never free itself from".
In war, there are territories one must never capture nor defend, but must let go of, if the rest of the army is to survive. Knowing what not to do is harder than knowing or thinking one knows of what to do. Diaoyudao is like a puffer fish that is also a bait. It was left dangling in front of the hungry eyes of the Japanese people in 1971, which if swallowed will surely bring Japan to a catastrophic war worse than August 6, 1945, in which Japan cannot let go of Diaoyudao, and China cannot let go of Japan, in a spiral to the bottom of the sea. And of course, needless to say, China will emerge victorious, even if at great cost to its navy, air force, and civilians, as well as to its economic development. Noda was foolish enough to think he can bite off Diaoyudao from China and enjoy his meal. How mistaken he was can be seen in how difficult it is for him to swallow it at all, and yet, Diaoyudao remains like a hook embedded in his cheek, with a tasty bait still begging him to swallow it, but with the certainty that if he forcibly swallows the hook and the bait, Japan will pay a price equal to its existence, as China will never let go of Diaoyudao, regardless of whatever threats are thrown at her.
Japan is saying basically, "I don't think I want to take over Diaoyudao" or "I don't want to fall on the sword of Senkaku", despite all the encouragement it is getting from its allies, "Go for it! You can do it! Just do it!" Poor Noda is at a loss. This is not the situation he dreamed Japan will end up at after it nationalized China's Diaoyudao. He has got the hook and the bait attached firmly inside his mouth as a fish would have experienced. And he cannot get away from his bait and hook either.
Whoever named "Diaoyudao" has the prescience of a Zhuge Liang. It has become the hook and bait by which the Japanese empire will be drawn to its nuclear guillotine, at the hands of China, the most pitiful victim of Japanese brutality from 1937 to 1945. It is not called "Fishing Island" for nothing. It caught the Japanese Mako Shark that nearly escaped its fate in 1945, and brought it back to the chopping block in 2012.
Now is the time for Japan to truly reflect upon the abysmal inhumanity ingrained in its history of the past 150 years, and make a true act of repentance, or the alternative, is for Japan to continue to pursue its militarist adventurism, get into a big fight with China over Diaoyudao, only to eventually pay the ultimate price, as China will not let Japan get away with killing any more Chinese on Chinese waters or islands. Any victory Japan will enjoy on Diaoyu will be even shorter than its one year of irrational exuberance from 1941 to 1942. After that, Japan will have nowhere to go or to turn to but to the fire and brimstone where its many, many war criminals currently are paying for their grievous sins. If Japan refuses to learn from history, it will be forced to repeat it, and this time around, China will not be limited by a limited stockpile of strategic weapons, and thus the outcome will be extremely, extremely catastrophic for Japan.
In Buddhism, we have a saying, "Turn back and it's land". But Japan insists it wants to live the Western way of militarism, and perish in the way of Western militarism, since it has "Left Asia" for Europe more than a hundred years ago.
Yes, Japan is now so far from the Asian mainland, it is doubtful it can find its way back, or wish to turn its head to look at the shore behind. But someone in Japan has finally reached the top, just in time, to turn the head of Noda back to China. This fellow told Noda, " 回头是岸 “。
