Tokyo and Taiwan launched a naval water cannon battle for the disputed islands

A sea battle using water cannons unfolded today at the disputed Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu), where Japanese patrolmen are trying to oust the Taiwanese ships from the area that Tokyo considers its territorial waters.

This fight Tokyo TV shoots from helicopters and shows live. According to ITAR-TASS, about forty Taiwanese fishing vessels, accompanied by eight watchmen, defiantly entered the zone that Tokyo considers its territorial waters in the uninhabited Senkaku ridge (Diaoyu).

Flotilla tried to break through to the largest island of this zone - Wotsurizima, the Japanese coast guard said. On the way at the Taiwanese ships stood the Japanese guard, who used powerful water cannons. Taiwanese patrol ships also use water cannons.

Helicopters and airplanes are locking in the air, which fly directly over the ships. The superiority in this battle while on the side of the Japanese.

According to incoming reports, at least part of the Taiwanese flotilla has now turned back and is moving towards international waters. The ships of this grouping are flying the flags, on them are posted the banners "Diaoyu belong to Taiwan."

In the open waters of Senkaku (Diaoyu), there are five PRC watchdogs who monitor the situation. Until they make attempts to enter the zone, which Tokyo declares there its territorial waters.

On Monday, September 24, there were four PRC watchdogs in it for several hours. They also ignored orders to leave the area. However, this did not lead to a clash and a fight on water cannons.

The People's Republic of China and Taiwan believe that Japan seized Senkaku (Diaoyu) by force in 1885, when imperial China won the war. At the same time, Tokyo turned Taiwan into his colony. After World War II, Tokyo abandoned the rights to this island. According to the logic of Beijing and Taipei, he must now return Diaoyu.

Tokyo claims that these islands are irrelevant to the outcome of the 1885 war of the year and were joined because at that time no one belonged.

The conflict around Senkaku (Diaoyu) escalated after the Japanese government bought three of the five islands of the ridge from their private owners on 11 in September. This caused a sharp reaction in Beijing and Taipei. However, so far in the campaign of protests was the leader of China. There, in particular, mass anti-Japanese demonstrations took place over eight days.

In the zone near the islands, which Tokyo considers its territorial waters, already three times after September 11, the courts of the People's Republic of China defiantly entered.

    So, what can we say here that the undercover fight led to the fact that China and Taiwan agreed, given that Taiwan is a US puppet, or rather it has been more recently since 1949, which means that Taiwan’s elites are ready for peaceful joining, so to speak, of their historical homeland, otherwise why this demarche ...... we really live in an era of global change .....

      Taiwan considers itself to be true China, and it is fighting for disputed territories as a third party.

    Something I don’t understand at all.
    Before that, China and Japan shared these islands.
    Now Taipei has come out.
    Will they now have the world's first three-member war, when each is fighting two enemies?
    Obama will break his head: how to support two allies in the fighting among themselves?

    Circus, and more! "Soaked" each other from water cannons! And the Chinese watched, they probably didn't put such crap on the watchdogs. Well, the guys will have to beat them with what they have. This porridge is being brewed, let's look at the sequel. If the Japanese hurry up, then you can watch it live.

    It will all end with the fact that China will bring serious forces to the islands. There will be a hassle (with ship damage and casualties). And then Japan will endlessly express protests (if it does not agree to 20 percent of the extracted).

    Everything is just like a rake. Somewhere there was a message that in the area of ​​the disputed islands it is assumed that there are large reserves of rare earth metals and oil. And that's all. This was enough for both Kitaky and Taiwan to claim their rights to the islands. This was followed by "spontaneous" demonstrations of ordinary Chinese and Taiwanese, then clashes with the Japanese coast guard, and all this could end with a serious skirmish between all the parties to the conflict. And not verbal. And there the States will catch up as Japan, after all, is an ally and will leave her alone with the Chinese dragon. China, on the other hand, can use Taiwan's twitching as an excuse to “kick the ears,” which China has long dreamed of. And again, the States will be in business. In this regard, the planned joint exercises of the Russian and Japanese navies look more than strange. After all, China may not understand Russia's incomprehensible intentions against the background of the brewed porridge. And dull China is not the best China for Russia now. So it's not that simple

    I wonder what they achieved by watering the ships. Everything was waiting, they were about to get a jet into the radar, but did not hit. It is difficult to break the glass, but it is possible, then, if you pour it accurately, you can disable the trawler.

    Greetings to everyone, steep porridge is brewing from behind these islands, at first they just looked at each other through binoculars, now, they conducted a "sea battle" with the help of water cannons (so far no one has used a real weapon, they do not want to), and then tomorrow, someone nerves will not stand it and will be fired from a real cannon, and "porridge-malasha" will begin on the Pacific Ocean. Obama will really get a headache solving this problem: which of the allies to support. If he supports the Japanese, he will lose Taiwan as an ally. And for China there is a chance to agree with Taiwan on cooperation and possibly an alliance.
