Chinese patrol vessels entered the zone of the disputed Senkaku Islands

Three Chinese patrol vessels entered the area around the Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu), which Tokyo considers its territorial waters. They are required to leave the waters from Japanese watchdogs over the radio, but no action has yet been taken. In connection with the current situation, a crisis headquarters has been created in the office of the Prime Minister of Japan.

The last time the Chinese patrol vessels were approaching directly to the Senkaku Islands 3 in October of this year. These islands Tokyo included in its territory in 1885 year. The Japanese side claims that they were uninhabitable and did not belong to anyone. At the same time, Beijing claims that the Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu) were captured by Japan as a result of the war with China, when in 1885 he made the neighboring island of Taiwan as his colony. After World War II, Japan renounced rights to this island and then recognized it as part of the PRC. According to the logic of the PRC, Tokyo should also return the Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu), around which hydrocarbon deposits were discovered in the 70 of the 20th century.

This conflict escalated in September 2012, when the Japanese government bought part of the islands for which China claims, from their private owners, Japanese citizens, ITAR-TASS reports. Beijing believes that such a demarche is designed to reinforce Tokyo’s rights to Senkaku.

      Your comment, to put it mildly, is irresponsible. The clash between China and Japan is highly likely to develop into a full-scale war. Japan in the beginning of the 21st century is not the same as in the beginning of the 20th. War with Japan means war with the USA. And this is already a big war on our borders and it’s not at all a fact that China will leave it with a raised head, which again is not profitable for us.

        I admit that nonsense. but all this fuss is like a single plan to pull the grouping of states from the Mediterranean into different places. For amers, the computer is already hanging, and then for a key ally in the Asia-Pacific region, the hemorrhoid has worsened.

          I agree that you need to think not "locally" but globally, so to speak in the future.

    The Asians check each other for "weak", but it is unlikely that it will come to shooting with such a trade turnover as between China and Japan, it seems that shooting is not handy. So it will cost, the Chinese will pinch Japanese production on their territory, the Japanese will cry, complain to the elder (USA) and in total they will most likely cut the oil-bearing shelf "according to their interests" ...

    This news is sort of third-rate. But it seems to me that you need to pay attention to them. We have not yet faced our foreheads for these islands, but both sides have taken an attack position. So far, there’s not a long war. For the States Japanese, China itself is not from the weak.

      I agree with you, they can easily be cut off, it’s enough to recall reports from the parliaments of Asian countries (as an example of impulsiveness and extreme restraint), where serious but petty state men, having rejected common sense, are torn to pieces because of a seemingly complete trifle. And here - the territory, national ambitions, and hydrocarbons ... Werner poderutstsa !? what

      So the big war is not far away. For the Japanese states, China itself is not one of the weak.

      An example, maybe not entirely correct, but China climbed in 1979 in Vieinam, behind which the USSR stood. And here just now the Chinese warned "third countries" against interfering in matters concerning various disputed islands. It even warms the soul, the United States - and "third countries" will soon classify the United States as a "third world" country ...

    I think, they will not bring to a fight. agree on joint operation. and now they’re just playing on each other’s nerves in order to grab a bigger share in the total business

      The Chinese are cocky and ambitious, the Japanese are simply loud and have no chances against China, but the amers loom behind them ... God forbid, of course, but wars came about because of less - it all depends on the hidden desires of China and the USA.

    For me, the enemies are both of us for us. But the Leader of the country does not.
    [i] Comrades! It is in the interests of the USSR — the homeland of the working people, so that war breaks out between the Reich and the capitalist Anglo-French bloc. Everything must be done so that this war lasts as long as possible in order to exhaust both sides. speech I.V. Stalin 19.08.1939/XNUMX/XNUMX.

    There is also a third pretender to the islands - Taiwan. Here he can arrange a provocation by pushing the foreheads of two of his competitors.

    Probably, the Chinese need a precedent to show the whole world that it must now be reckoned with. Hydrocarbons are just a pretext. And the fact that Japan was the target of the "run over" is a hint to the United States.
