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.
