|"The Cairo Declaration of 1943, states, quite clearly, land stolen and/or occupied since the beginning of World War One (1914) has to be returned. Since Japan claimed the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands in 1895, after seeing no evidence of Chinese occupancy in 1885, then, under International Law ..."

Is this the "Cairo Declaration" which you are all clamoring about? :
From Wikipedia -
"The main points of the document were:
The Allies are not fighting Japan for their own territorial expansion.
The Allies are resolved to bring unrelenting military pressure against Japan until it agrees to unconditional surrender.
Japan shall be stripped of all islands she has seized or occupied in the Pacific since the beginning of World War I in 1914.
All the territories Japan has taken from China such as Manchuria (Dongbei), Formosa (Taiwan), and the Pescadores (Penghu), shall be restored to the Republic of China.
The Allies are determined that Korea shall become free and independent.
Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed."
Trying your "selective truth" trick again huh?
The Caairo Declaration also says Japan should return all territories stolen from China.
Japan secretly annexed Diaoyu in 1895 when Taiwan was ceded to Japan after the First Sino-Japanese War, and adminstered the islands as part of Taiwan.
And it is stated clearly in the Potsdam Declaration that "Japanese sovereignty shall be limited to the islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku and such minor islands as we determine," as had been announced in the Cairo Declaration in 1943. (Wikipedia)
