Governments can be paralyzed by false choices, diplomatically, politically, militarily and economically, where all options are equally unpalatable, in the opinion of its analysts, and as such become victims to well-orchestrated traps. In such a case, the government has no other choice but to rely on the intelligence, courage, and resourcefulness of its people, as China had to do during the second phase of the Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-1941) after suffering extreme paralysis due to internal divisions and defections by politicians and warlords to the Japanese (1931-1937). In the case of Diaoyu falling into the hands of the Japanese for the past 40 years, the awakening of the Chinese people to their sovereign rights as a people have kept alive the hope of Diaoyu islands returning to their rightful ownership. For four decades, since 1971, the Chinese people of all walks of life, from Taiwan and Hongkong have braved the waves and the beatings of the Japanese coast guards, to return year after year to their sovereign and sacred islands of Diaoyutai. All the while, their governments were forced by political, economic and military circumstances to remain silent for the most part, due to undesirable consequences if they were to speak up or act.|
Now, China is once again at the crossroads, where succumbing to the numbing effects of military, economic and diplomatic pressures from all sides begins to appear more desirable than waking up to a very difficult and painful struggle to save one of its limbs from being amputated and cast off to the Japanese for all posterity.
Once again, it devolves to every Chinese on both sides of the strait to take up the fight where their governments' hands may be tied. It is time again for all the fishermen out there in Diaoyu's seas, and those yet to join them from the coasts of Mainland China, Hongkong, Macau and Taiwan, to converge on Diaoyu and retake with their feet the land that their ancestors once stood proudly on, and wave with their hands, the flags of both governnments, not as partisans, but as their true masters. Finally, the master of both sides of the strait, the Chinese people are coming home to Diaoyutai. Let this be a getting together of both sides of the strait on the National Day of the Chinese Mainland on October 1, 2012. Let the governments argue with each other without end, but let the people of China speak its final decision on Diaoyutai, which is really very simple, "I love Diaoyu's sands and waters. Diaoyu is mine." "我最愛的釣魚灘!"
Let the movement "I LOVE DIAOYU!" begin today. Let us all give our love to Diaoyu -- a people's love is the strongest force on earth, let it shine!
