JAPANESE DIPLOMACY CAN BE EQUATED WITH DUPLICITY UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE|
Diplomacy and peace talks from the historical perspective of how Japan has used them previously, can be safely considered duplicity until proven otherwise.
Over and over again, Japan uses peace talks, offers of peace from its main offices in Tokyo, or through envoys, to split the opinion of the top level leadership, of the middle level diplomats, and of the public, by example (like the Ishiwara vs Noda farce), by words (Noda says he wants to continue good relations with China while insisting he wants to nationalize China's sovereign territory of Diaoyu island), by deed (holding military exercises on how to retake Diaoyu, by ramming Chinese fishing boats, by arresting Chinese activists on Diaoyu, and by stationing Japanese policemen and coast thugs on Diaoyu). Then, the question is raised inside China as to "How should we deal with it?" Invariably, there will be differences of opinion, as to the risks, benefits or alternatives. So far, all seems fine. But then, some issues cannot be answered logically based on existing known facts. These become dividing lines in the unity of response of the leadership, the cadre, or the public, weaking the force of the correct response which is now competing wth a number of false moves for the manpower and resources of China.
The second use of its peace talks and diplomacy is to establish channels with specific susceptible individuals in the Chinese government, on a buddy-buddy basis, first to faciliate access to higher ups, and next to faciliate agreement by the higher ups on the proposals of the Japanese. There is only a fine line between the two, transition through which can be accelerated by favors, personal, sexual or monetary, which can easily be masked and hidden from other levels of government. Thus, especially one-on-one private meetings between Japanese and Chinese officials should be banned, and if allowed for extreme reasons, monitored and recorded for group review, not just once, but for all times. Bribery is endemic amongst the pirates of Senkaku, and this is not a speculative worry, but based on historical facts.
