JAPAN'S WAR ON CHINA IS BASED ON MILITARY AND NON-MILITARY MEANS, MISTAKEN BY CHINA AND THE WORLD AS AN APPROACH BASED ON "WAR AND PEACE" -- THERE IS NO PEACE FOR JAPAN UNTIL IT TAKES OVER CHINA, ASIA, AND IF POSSIBLE THE WORLD -- AS LONG AS IT HAS ITS CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY.
Japan's "DIPLOMACY" against China, and we must use the word "against" because in the Japanese mindset, it is always defending Japan against a potential if not actual aggressor, is not about how to resolve peacefully its illegal occupation of Diaoyu island. It is about how to attack China's non-military infrastructure and external relations in such a way that Japan gets to keep Diaoyu island, which in turn is just part of a bigger plan of how to resurrect the Meiji Japanese empire, i.e., the Second Meiji Restoration in time.
The purpose of diplomacy is thus that of a rope or net, in lieu oF a sword or spear.
The purpose of diplomacy as practiced by Japan is to hang around its victims' neck, ensnare them, and then destroy them.
(1) Diplomacy as a means to ensare Chinese officials in bribe and corruption: The rope of graft and corruption had already been applied countless times to countless Manchu officials that Sun Yatsen concluded, rightly, that the Manchu regime could not be reformed from within. It had to be replaced with a healthy China body politic, if possible. The slogan of the Xinhai uprising of Manqing Fubai, or Corrupt Manchu, may not mean much to modern Chinese, but it was a stark reality to Sun Yatsen that China was being ruled by traitors at the highest levels, particularly after how a superior Chinese navy and army were systematically destroyed by the Japanese Navy and Army in Korea, Lushun (Port Arthur) and Weihaiwei, when ships were lacking cannons, shells, ammo, and everything they were supposed to have but did not when forced to do actual combat with the Japanese fleet, due to graft and corruption at the lower levels, all the way to strategic misplanning at the highest levels leading to lack of reinforcements when needed, and lack of logistical support for entire fleets. Few, if any, of the corrupt officials really got away with their loot however, as they were often deposited in Japanese banks, which disappeared with their eventual demotion or demise. As a corollary to bribery, the offiicials who sold their country to Japan later were blackmailed with exposure of the same, and thus could be made to work for the empire for free thereafter on threat of exposure of their treason.
(2) Diplomacy as deception of American officials: Well known is the suprise sneak attack of Imperial Japan on the US at Pearl Harbor, using six aircraft carriers to decimate a largely undefended US naval base, while Japanese dipomats, riding through rows upon rows of Japanese cherry blossoms donated to America in 1912, engaged the US Department of State in peace talks.
(3) Diplomacy as a means to divide the unity of their victims: The Manchu regime was involved in elaborate debates over how to deal with the Japanese threat, dividing the top leadership, the military, and the public, generating indecision at every level, when it was all too clear that Japan must be fought at all costs with all means by all people. This persisted into the period of the early Republic of China, known as the Warlord Era, where even the father of a later folk hero, Zhangxueliang, by name of Zhang Zuolin, cooperated with the Japanese in northeast China, until the Japanese thought it better to rule the area themselves and bombed him to oblivion. Yuan Shikai, on the other hand, who became the first president of the fledgling and largely powerless Republic of China in 1912, connived with the Japanese who supported him. Yuan was the successor of Li Hongzhang who died of cancer a few years after he became the first Chinese to have an x-ray taken of his face where a bullet from his horsetrading years in Japan was lodged, when he visited Germany. Thanks to Germany!
As applied to the present Diaoyu crisis, China should not take lightly any offer of diplomatic talks with Japan, as a period of respite from the tensions of war.
(1) No, diplomacy is war by other means, especially for Japan, and this war is fought at the level of the heart (patriotism versus treasonous betrayal, integrity versus greed, and patriotism versus shame). At the beginning, it will be a struggle between integrity and greed, but eventually after having taken any bribes, it will be between patriotism and fear or shame of exposure). This is a form of psychological warfare that most countries are not prepared for at that level. All talks must therefore begin at the lowest level, never at a person-to-person or closed group format, and preferably, always done in the broad daylight of closed circuit monitoring in China.
(2) If Japan offers nothing but divisive questions to the Chinese government, like whether or not to accept continued Japanese exercise of jurisdiction over Diaoyu after it had already declared its "nationalization" of same, then the offer is not bona fide, does not reverse Japan's mistakes and cannot be elevated to a matter of debate internally. Japan must first reverse its mistake, not act on its assumption in seeking Chinese concessions.
(3) China should assume there will be another Pearl Harbor, another Weihaiwei, or another Port Arthur, even as "peace talks" with Japan are proceeding "apace". In short, China must take a repeat inventory of its arms, munitions, logistics, transport, manufacturing, raw material sources, etc., as if it were going to war on the level of the War of 1945 and greater (due to the increased violence of modern weaponry), and produce at break neck speed what it needs to fend off another attack on its mainland, and on Taiwan, via an internal uprising first, and then external intervention, as in Korea. Failure to prepare by diverting a significant part of its GDP to the war effort against Japan will lead to another defeat like in the Battle of the Yellow Sea and of the Port of Weihaiwei in 1894. Lack of preparation is itself a litmus test of how much internal corruption has been effected by Japan, as was evident to even the lay people at the time of the Manchu failure to defend China and Korea. China cannot afford to wait until another military disaster as in the Battle of the Yellow Sea to wake up to internal corruption and prepare to fight the Japanese invaders. It would have been too little and too late.
Thus, the defense of Diaoyu Dao is the Battle of Thermopylae for the Chinese peoples of both Taiwan and the Mainland. If China and Taiwan allows Japan to continue to occupy Diaoyu under any pretext of "peace is better than war" or "China needs time to earn more money" etc., then it is a matter of time before encouraged by Japanese aggression, other countries needing free labor, and free natural resources, will coalesce to invade China as a group, as in the Eight Powers invasion of China, and this time, they will make sure the Sick Man of Asia will be cut into pieces, never to rise again.
BEWARE THE GREEKS WHEN THEY BRING GIFTS, THE TROJANS LEARNED TOO LATE. CHINA MUST LEARN FROM HISTORY, NOT BY IT. DIAOYU IS CHINA. DIPLOMACY IS NOT FOR PEACE. IT IS WAR ON CHINA BY OTHER MEANS.
