Chinese General Demands “Return” of Okinawa


A serving Chinese general has been saying he thinks Japan ought to be made to “withdraw” from Okinawa, in favour of the peace-loving Chinese.

According to media reports, a Chinese general attached to a national defence research institute gave a radio interview in which he demanded the “return” of Okinawa to China:

We must demonstrate our resolve over the Diaoyu Islands to Japan with actions, but there is a wider issue – we should formally raise the issue of the return of Okinawa [to China].

Okinawa used to be a kingdom called Ryukyu, but in 1879 Japan forcibly occupied it. They had to abandon the Chinese calendar and Chinese characters.

Japan may have occupied it,  but we need to look closely at the issue.


Of course, Japan should withdraw from Ryukyu.

Prior to being formally annexed by Japan, Ryukyu had enjoyed various tributary relationships with both Japan and China, usually finding itself under the de facto control of the nearby Shimazu clan in Kyushu.

Recent years have seen increasing amounts of revanchist rhetoric from Chinese sources demanding the “return” or “independence” of the islands, but so far no official demand has been made for them, and none seems immediately likely given they are still bristling with American firepower – although China is already trying to pry parts of their “sacred territory” from the chain.

    China just wants to dominate the world. Trying to take over the market by selling their cheap crappy products.
    They already claimed Taiwan and Tibet (which should be set free from China), now they want Okinawa.
    Fuck them!
    And all they do is break copyright laws. I am not just talking about fake handbags and shit, but fake stores, fake fastfood restaurants (e.g Obama Fried Chicken) They don’t care at all.

    Ryukyu namely Okinawa was a vassal state like Korea before Japan occupied it in 1879.and China doesnt regard it as its own territory.

    “withdraw”and”return” are totally different things and distortion will make yourself incredible.

    Japan hold The WUC to support Uyghur against China,Why China cant talk about Okinawa?

    I think Most of the opinions here are just based on prejudice and arrogance.

    China bullies Korea, Philippines and Japan. And yet the ASEAN/UN/America are way too much of a pussy to retaliate against China.

    China makes statements of ownership based on past records. If that’s so then they should return all of their possession to Africa. Because that’s where human beings started. They owe these to their REAL motherland.

  • Heh. Anyone play fall out 3? That’s the result of a war with china. A total nuclear war. The result would be a devastated earth. Though I think the rest of the world agrees that no one would really miss China all that much in it’s current state. The only reason why people are buddy buddy with China is their mineral resources and cheap labor. Frankly I think Russia and many other countries it neighbors, went extinct. The land there is indeed valuable. If it weren’t for China owning everybody, I don’t think they really have much value to other world powers. Most of their products are defective. Russia for one is only buddy, buddy system because of similar problems with the US…money. except its not so much debt wise as in more like China is a gold mind of suckers to cheat and give left overs.

    With people who properly know how to take care of the environment I think it would only take like 100 years to clean up the mess that China has made of it’s own land.

  • Chinese Bull shit once again. So what they’re saying because of History they have claims over said island and ignores the laws of the present. So if I have a meeting with the Chinese Dicktator, if I kill him in said meeting, it wouldn’t have any hold on me because way back then in history there were no Laws over killing someone. The only solution I see is to slay every single one of those dogs so we won’t be bothered by such bullshit.

  • Sure, Japan should withdraw and Ryukyu be made an independent sovereign nation again, not under Japanese OR Chinese rule.

    And India and Pakistan should withdraw from Persia and restore that nation.

    And while we’re at it, the United States, Canada and Mexico should withdraw from North America and return it to the native peoples.

    Ow!!! Soda just shot from my nose from laughing so hard. That stings! Damn Canadians!

      Hong Kong was a lease construction, lease contract ended, so the Brits returned it. It’s as simple as that.

      Now if you want to make the comparison with Tibet, which was a unified empire in the 7th century, ended up falling apart, various pieces were governed by Mongol and Chinese overlords at various points.

      Chinese imperial rule fell in 1912 (although its influence has become pretty minimal in the 19th century anyway), so the soldiers were kicked out and Tibet became independent again in 1913, and then the Chinese invaded them in 1950.

  • Sorry, Okinawa should be independent, since it doesn’t belong to the Chinese and Japanese at all. the Chinese general already said Okinawa used to be the Ryukyu-kingdom which was independent, though many has Chinese ancestry.

    Anyway, I guess, as always and as everywhere, the wrong people are on influential positions in the military, government and so on, like in this case that Chinese General. Something that can be written in Chinese does not have to be Chinese.

    ctually, quite a bit will identify as being Okinawans (Ryukyu) before Japanese. Totally different culture from both Japan and China but it shares some traits with both. But China does have a point, it was closer to China before Japan forcibly took control and outlawed pretty much everything Okinawan. They weren’t even allowed to speak their native Hougan when Japan took over. Any child in school caught speaking it was labeled a “pig” or lower then their mighty naicha counter parts.

      They are starting to lose their identity though. The younger (more lazy ) generation isn’t as in touch with their roots as the older generation. They’re more likely to identify themselves as Japanese first and Okinawan second. Which is a crying shame seeing that Japan pretty much treats them as second class citizens much like the Ainu. I lived there for three years and I remember Japan wanting to rewrite the text books in Okinawa, downplaying the war crimes committed by Japan on the Okinawan people during WWII in Okinawa.

    China’s way of saying revenge on Japan for invading them in world war II. Don’t forget Japan was the one started it, just because Okinawa wasnt China’s, what makes Japan any better than China. Chinese were the largest victims in WWII. Even till this day they hate each other.

  • Hmm…

    Wasn’t Japan colonized by China?

    If I remember the legend right, China’s first emperor “Qin Shi Huang” in his quest for immortality sent a whole fleet to search the islands of Japan for a holy hermit who knew the secret of eternal life. But they couldn’t find this character who even if he did exist likely used his powers to hide himself, not wishing to give such a brutal tyrant more than a lifetime.

    If they’d had just told him how stupid it was, or came back empty handed they’d face torture and death so they just used his generosity and stocked up like mad on supplies, brought women, cattle, seed… And settled the islands and never came back. They prepared for a revenge invasion but as the emperor’s “immortality” quest had led to an early death drinking mercury fueled “Alchemical Elixirs” it never came, not for centuries. Unfortunately while White man gets the blame he hasn’t the monopoly on “Colonialist” forces going like rabid beasts on native populations, and the cost of the persons who became the Japanese race was near extermination, then millenia of oppression.

    In abstract China does have some kind of claim on Japan, the genetics flow from China. But it’s one that’d be as respected as any claim Britan has on the USA.

  • lol… they want to conquer part of Japan that we could pretty safely assume wants to be Japanese and was never China, because this crank feels entitled to it, yet Taiwan and Tibet insist that they are not China and China oppresses them both and insists that Taiwan isn’t even a real country.

    That is so crazy I’m not even going to attribute it to China until I see how they handle this “general.”

          00:20 someone doesn’t understand basics of national debt contracts. First of all, they cannot release anything with US agreeing to it since those debt is written in contracts about who gets to do what – national debt is not a personal debt. There are specific situations that allows china to do so, none of them which can be brought about if US first makes the mistake of not abiding by the same terms of repayments, which US can easily remedy by devaluing its dollars, and letting china take the hit for inflation.

          Having a debt is under a mutually agreed contract, which does not allow unilateral scrubbing of them by one party. Besides, as the saying goes, “If you borrow a million from the bank, banks owns you, but if you borrow a trillion, you own the bank”. With the power to print dollar at will and letting other nations take the hit from it as a revenge for their own currency manipulations, and with strict contract that does not allow unilateral action without the whole bonds bought by china being ruled null and void by international banking systems, china cannot demand anything. They foolishly thought they got the weak point of US, when infact they walked into the trap of internationally binding contracts that allows US to use cheated money of chinese for their own advantage while draining their crookedly-earned dollars.

          China will release its dollar holding and force default of US debt all at once and trigger a positive feedback loop – Dollar worth as much as toilet paper overnight, US credit rating down to junk status. You won’t be able to feed your army, much less sending them to war.

          You can’t go to war with them, they own you now.

          China would repeat what they did in the Korean war. Just throw numbers at the enemy to make them run out of bullets and then overwhelm them. China historically hasn’t put much value on human life.

          The problem at this point is that now only China has the industrial capacity to manufacture weapons to take on the Chinese. The US has a severe problem: after a couple of months there’s no more missiles, rockets or ammunition left. Most swords and knives are even manufactured outside the US. I guess there are rocks in the western US.

          You’d have to be retarded to invade China over mere threats to invade Japan.

          China doesn’t have good cards in this game. If they actually DID invade Japan, guess how the chips would fall…? Yep, NATO + Russians + “everyone” vs. China.

          See, if anyone really has to be worried about China, it’s Russia & India (& other countries in the immediate sphere of influence), in the first place.
          No move would be more stupid for them than siding with China, rather than against it.

          And unlike the US, the EU has rather good relations & allies all over the world…

          in which less than 4400 of ours died for fucking up the whole country, while sandniggers killed themselves and alqueda now extremely marginalized? Not to mention we get to wield a significant measure of geopolitical power in an area with most valuable modern day resource? yea, a big fail.

          This was nothing compared to vietnam or ww2, or even civil war. We control the dollar, the violence, and influence. What’s not to celebrate about?

          Not to mention osama is dead now….in his own home. Sandniggers got bitch slapped good when they got uppity.

          The “imports” actually are natural minerals, which are needed for electronic and automotive manufacturing and does not have anything to do with retarded China. Did China plant those minerals? No. Were those minerals fossils of their ancestors? No. China got lucky they sit their fat arses on a land rich with rare minerals. That’s all.

          Besides, I find it funny that the best capacitor is the Japan-made one, not the China-made one, despite the rare minerals used for the capacitor manufacturing were imported from China. Just another proof that China doesn’t know how to properly and optimally use its own resources. Might as well give all those minerals to the countries who knows how to handle them.

          They would move their imports and exports to other 3rd world countries that don’t bitch as much, and chinese economy collapses under job loss and complete international trade isolation?

          Good idea. Let the chinese bitch some more and we can remove the free trade agreement to another nations. It would cause a recession for a few years, but no nation believe chinese are indispensible when there are so many other poor people just wishing for foreign investments. Rest of the world takes one or two year recession than moves on, while chinese slide into abrupt depression because export they are so dependent on is cut off completely. Nice try.

    • They don’t have much of a blue water navy lets put it this way India has a more capable blue water navy then China so they can’t really invade anyone.
      The first time they try any troop ships and subs would quickly become new reefs.

          You’re forgetting about the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan, which was renewed as late as I think it was 2010 and will be in effect until 2020.

          Granted both sides have the option of revoking it, but there’s a 1y notice requirement for that.

          As it’s a signed and ratified treaty, it’s considered the Law of the Land, and ignoring it would leave a President open to impeachment, which considering the current political climate in the US is a very real worry. And no President is going to commit political suicide over something like this.

          In addition, considering their tech level, it’s estimated that Japan could be a fully capable nuclear power within a 2y timeframe.

          So even with the revoking of the treaty, they’d still need to hold out for 1y, if they hadn’t already started a switchover prior to the revocation and done their work in secret.

          And that’s probably a scenario that the US would encourage and assist in, if they did have to pull out.

          So the whole idea of the US just going: “Screw it, we’re going home” and ignoring their treaty obligations. Just isn’t feasible.

          It might be what the Chinese want to see happen, but the political situation in the US has to be taken into consideration as well. And that pretty much precludes such an event from occurring.

          If you think russia cares that much about china, you are brutally mistaken. Unless US actions directly threaten the integrity and power of russia in central asia or eastern europe, russia would actually welcome the opportunity to get rid of its bitchy neighbor they share a very porous and long land border with.

          You can always count on the russian national interest to behave in a way that benefits russia. If US and china go to war with US solely focusing on china and courting russia with sharing influence in the region far more than chinese ever could, russia would mull and then jump at it. Geopolitics in stacked in favor of whomever attacks china because they managed to piss off every one of their neighbors so thoroughly.

        • Only a gullible person would start comparing Japan’s military power to the Chinese. Japan mainly relies on USA’s presence in the region. So a war between China and Japan is actually a war between China and the U.S., and the U.S. won’t risk any World War 3 scenarios until they draw Russia out of the game.
          And drawing Russia out of the game would be quite hard, considering Russian nuclear subs keep popping up randomly near the New York coast.

          I would love to see how china with its severely lacking naval and land record would fair against battle-experienced marines and navy that crushed the people who raped their women, rampaged across their lands, and burned their homes. Not to mention those inexperienced naval forces should make great targets for navy pilots and destroyer jockeys who are eager to get another flat top kills on their records.

          Really, substituting your own body counts for tactics is a clear mark that they already lost.

          America would not want a war with china because they have put massive amounts of resourses into building battle ships not just a couple a mean lods, so america would ditch the japs

        • Japan actually has a sizable Airforce and Navy any invasion fleet would suffer serious losses esp one without any air cover.
          Since Japan is ordering some F-35s and has the ATD-X in development.
          The Hyuga class ships could be easily converted into an aircraft carrier for S/VTOL planes like the F-35.
          Plus the US would take Japan’s side.

          Actually Italy has 2 aircraft carrier (garibaldi and cavour) and it is storically a sea power, altough usually limited to the mediterran sea. Dont underestimate G8 nations, they all have quite some military power: japan itself has one of the most advanced fleet in the pacific.

      So basically, Japan is forced to choose between Chinese and American occupation? Having in mind that China is a much closer neighbour to Japan than the US, having China occupy Japan would lead to lesser tensions in the Asian region, than vice-versa.

      • Anonymous says:

        Being occupied by China is one of the worst thing that could possibly happen. Soon there will be no more “Tibet” simply because the Chinese are slowly but surely commiting genocide by resettling Tibet with han Chinese instead of natives.
        Do you think the Japanese would fare any better then the other minorities in China?

      Have you ever been to Okinawa? I was there and can definitely vouch for the level of noise from the base. I thought it wasn’t much living on the Honshu Island, but after going there I was amazed of the noise levels from the aircraft and such. Okinawians have every right to be pissed, however there is a point about China invading Okinawa w/o the USA Military presence there.

      What a load of bull. They have a name for every place in their dialect = historically ours to them reds.

      • I have failed to see the Chinese side of the argument beyond “it has been historically ours” in all their territorial disputes.

        Regarding the Senkaku Islands:
        1) Documentation stating their are Japan’s territory was accepted internationally at the beginning of the 20th century and China had no objections at that time.

        2) Japanese people lived on the islands in the middle of the 20th century and buildings were constructed to help with fish processing(Once again with no complaints from the Chinese government).

        3) The lands are owned privately by Japanese national currently.

        It would be nice to hear a more detailed argument from the Chinese side beyond the historical rhetoric.

          What’s important is that Okinawa at this point belongs to Japan. They clearly have more “history” with Japan than with the other country. Would they fare better with new masters after their land has been razed by artillery and ballistic missiles?

          Yes, they’re all the same, but when a country makes statements, however vague they may be that you’re land belongs to them, then of course you’ll side with the locals.

          Remember the Falklands? The British still hold them because the people living there are primarily English. History can be very painful at times, but we look forward, not backwards.
