1945

The only peaceful solution is surrender.

The only military solution is victory.

Diaoyu is China's beloved "green island".  China will never surrender Diaoyu to Japan, come hell or high water.  Therefore, China will have to land on Diaoyu, even if it means returning to 1945.

12 MILES TO CHINA'S DIAOYU ISLAND

Finally, a Chinese survey ship entered within 12 miles of Diaoyudao's shoreline on October 23, 2012.  The presence of China within its true sovereign waters is the absolute minimum to establish its claim of sovereignty and jurisdiction.  But, that is not the same as "effective jurisdiction" which means the ability to police it.  Yet, it is a big step for China, which has been afraid of causing a war with Japan due to Japanese military exercises that threaten to "retake" any island by overwhelming military force that it is currently occupying whether legally or illegally.  The threat of force has always been at the background when Japan claimed, and the US agreed, that Diaoyu is "covered" by their Mutual Defense Treaty, even though the logical contradiction of Japan "legally administering" a Diaoyudao that it has "no legal sovereignty" over negates this claim.  Why?  Because you cannot enforce a contradiction.

In the end, for all the patina of civility that Japan wraps itself with, with the help of Madison Avenue, the occupation of Diaoyudao is incontrovertible brazen piracy and banditry on an international level.  It is also a violation of Japan's Instrument of Surrender of September 2, 1945.  The harmed party, China, has the absolute right to enforce the Potsdam Proclamation of July 26, 1945 which was embedded in the Instrument of Surrender of the Japanese Empire, including effecting "prompt and utter destruction" if Japan failed to abide by its terms.  

China, so far, has avoided exercising or even threatening to exercise this right, out of humanitarian considerations for millions of innocent Japanese civilians who have been so miseducated by their un-denazified government to this day.  Instead, it has been Japan with its repeated military exercises and show of force that has been threatening China with mass destruction.  But if Japan ever kills a Chinese on Dioayudao, the gloves will be off China's hands.  

Ground zero for Dioayudao is fast approaching as Japan continues to believe it can use force or show of force to steal Diaoyu from China, despite multiple warnings from China that its resolve to defend Diaoyu is unshakable.  If Japan attacks any Chinese ships, it will be a full blown war between Japan and China, just as if 1945 is here again.  

In short, 2012 is fast approaching >>> 1945.

Countdown to Ground Zero . . .

On October 24, 2012, seven Chinese government vessels were found outside the sovereign waters of Diaoyu island. One of these had briefly entered the sovereign waters of Dioayu earlier, i.e., gotten to within 12 nautical miles of the shore of Diaoyudao, an oceanographic surveyor, that is.  And so, China is gently testing the waters around Diaoyudao.  This has made the Japanese very nervous but not yet really scared of China, apparently, as Japan sent its most advanced destroyer into the same area to "monitor" the Chinese ships.  

As previously concluded, China can only hope to retake Diaoyu and keep it by expanding the theater to include all of Japan since its larger size and larger population increases its relative advantage only when both land and population size are maximally taken advantage of.  Japan is already using the same strategy to expand the war on China to its largest size, by trying to persuade Europe and India to go to war with China as well.  Only by coalition forming can Japan hope to reduce China's size advantage and turn it into a disadvantage.

China will have to retake Diaoyu before Japan succeeds in creating this military coalition against China, because until then, China is bigger than Japan, but after then, China will be smaller than the coalition backing Japan.  Thus, China's aim to defend its sovereignty cannot wait and must be accomplished one step ahead of Japan's coalition building effort.
