Senkaku Thief Now Chinese National Hero

The humble fisherman who allegedly rammed a Japanese coast guard ship and then became a pawn in China’s plots to extend its borders into Japanese seas was treated to a hero’s welcome on his release and return to his hometown.

Meanwhile, China still holds 4 Japanese nationals on charges which could result in execution, has apparently blocked exports of certain rare materials to Japan, and since the 24th has been patrolling the waters around the Senkaku Islands with 2 ships despite no less than 4 requests from Japan that they be removed.

Chinese media continues to lambaste Japan for its “insolence” and “lies” whilst insisting that the seas and islands of the area are indisputably Chinese territory.

Even after his release, Chinese retaliation appears to be continuing – in addition to demanding restitution, Japan’s day of participation in an international fireworks exhibition in Shanghai was mysteriously cancelled by the Chinese organisers, despite American, Canadian, French and Chinese participation continuing as before.

The truth of whether he actually rammed the coast guard’s ship is still unknown – the incident was recorded by the coast guard, but Japanese politicians have publicly stated that “the Japanese people will be enraged if we release the video,” suggesting the video contains clear evidence of the fisherman’s guilt only likely to further enrage the public.

The Japanese government for its part is now facing indignation and ridicule from both Japanese politicians and public alike – 72 members of the ruling party have formally protested the Prime Minister’s handling of the matter, a further 12 are demanding a permanent army presence on the isles, and the last (and notoriously incompetent) Prime Minister feels entitled to criticise them publicly.

Even the Prime Minister himself was jeered and denounced as a traitor by the crowd as he presented the victor’s cup at the conclusion of a recent national sumo competition. One man has been arrested for approaching the Prime Ministerial residence with a knife in order to “protest.”

Members of the government daring to support their handling of the case have resorted to lamely blaming the Okinawa prosecutors and the former LDP government for the mess.

Only the most left-wing of Japan’s media is sparing in criticising the government’s conduct, and online the reaction is one of outrage.

It seems only a matter of time before yet another incompetent place-holder Prime Minister is forced to resign.

For Japan the only redeeming aspect of the whole affair is that overseas opinion that China’s “peaceful rise” is in fact merely a cover for the subjugation of its neighbours has been immeasurably strengthened by its crude display of the brute-fisted diplomacy of intimidation and coercion.

    Oh wow, my ancestral homeland fields less than desirable greedy leaders.

    Anyways, if the video will only make the Japanese angrier, why not just show it openly? Truth should not be concealed.

    I have a troubling sense that this is part of China's ploy to invade Taiwan. China has usually been pretty reserved in these sorts of situation, and their actions in this instance is very out of character, since it puts them in direct conflict with a major trade partner. Due to this incident, China has indirectly damaged Taiwan's relationship with Japan (which has traditionally been extremely friendly). Furthermore, Taiwan now has Chinese warships to the Northeast and West seas. At the same time, the US' current system of appeasement has given China the best shot of attacking Taiwan without US military intervention. I certainly hope that's not the case.

    The US is not appeasing anyone they own our anal sphincter and that why we allow more and more Chinese games. Its just the name of the game. As I have stated before you have to wonder how many more decades Japan can stay neutral and without a real military that can deal with more than just coast guard duties.

    This is really ridiculous. China is just showing they still live in the dark ages when it comes to dealing with other countries and Japan aren't really in a position do anything much. However, they could at least stand their ground and not give in to China just like that.
    Claim territories that you lost is all fine and good though every country lost some territories in a one war or the next - just look at Europe. Heck that's one of the reasons WWII two started. It doesn't matter who "owned" the islands 100 years ago. If that were to happen UK, France, Spain and Portugal would legally be able to get half the world. That's just plain funny.

    Sure Japan did horrible things in WWII and so did Germany, Russia, US, and almost every other country that fought on enemy's territory - war is called brutal for a reason. Like the mongols didn't rape, kill and burn everything in their path. It's really brutal but there's nothing one could do about that especially now that so many years have passed. Most of the people participating in WWII are dead so people need to move on as best they can.

    China is developing at an amazing pace however, if it keeps doing things like these big investors will eventually move on. Just look at the recent past - the 1973 oil crisis. What did the UK and USA do after oil prices went up due to the stupidity of OAPEC? They started developing oil reserves in the North sea and Alaska. Sure it was really expensive in the short term but it was worth it in the long one. China isn't the only place in the world one could find cheap labour. It will cost a lot of money to move away from there and it will take time but it could happen and if China keeps it's though act up ignoring every other country out there it's going to happen rather soon and they'll be the ones to lose the most.

    Based on your mindset, America, after 9/11 you should smile congratulate the al-Qaeda on a job well done and not attack Afghanistan. Also why did you worry about Iraq? Even if they DID have Weapons of Mass Destruction what are they gonna do with it? Why bother them? After dropping the nukes in Japan, why stop them from rebuilding their army again. What's the worse that can happen, it's not like Pearl Harbor's gonna happen again amirite?

    First, Hong Kong does not equaled to mainland China.

    Second, it is not a tourist but more than tourist. The tourists were killed in the rescue in which the Pinoy police came completely unprepared. The police repeatedly commit mistakes that aggitated the hostage taker. The mayor and the police chief (who is supposed to be in charge) were having a buffet in a nearby hotel when the action is to take place. During the skirmish, many tourists were prob shot by the police or have to get out of their hiding place.
    Your government had yet reveal to the Hk gov a proper research report and with a proper apology.

    Third, if you think it is bad, our media caught your police and citizens taking pictures with a victory sign right in front of the school bus. The Pinoy media simply dismisses it as part of the "jolly Pinoy Christian spirit" vs "Overly Serious Chinese spirit". My ass. If that is the tourist bus of a bigger nation like USA, or actually (The real big bad China) PRC, you guys are fucked right away.

    Fourth, stop attacking Hong Kong with the Tenanmen Square, because of almost the entire world, Hong Kong done the most to support the protestors.

    Fifth, your politicians keep on deframing HK for lack of human rights and that is why they won't come to show us any evidences. You know what, HK Right now is embroiled in a case where large amount of Pinoys are fighting for the right to stay in HK as citizens, and the major HK parties and many of our human rights group are helping them against the PRC dominated SAR gov who don't want them to stay. And guess what is many Pinoy's wish to stay in HK, "It is a lot safer here than it is in Philippines."

    After seeing so many pinoys' feedback about this incident about this accident as if they had done nothing wrong and we are completely overreacting simply infuriated me. To me, quite a good number of them (including their president) are as shameless as the CCP and PRC individuals we Hkers had to deal with.

    Next: China will send an army of fishermen to all of Japan's main islands, and, somehow, claim ownership of all their territory, therefore obliterating Japan. An extreme concealed war of attrition if there ever was one.

    The Japanese government is good at re-writing history. And they did that literally a few years ago. They don't even acknowledge that Nanjing Massacre happened despite overwhelming evidence. I would not give Japanese government's argument much credibility. The fact is, both the Sino-Japanese wars were instigated by Japan's aggression towards China. Why should they benefits from the wars and keep the ill-gotten gains? Unlike Germany, Japan has never faced up to the history. They have never apologized to the Chinese except a few insincere attempts at expressing "regrets".

    As for my Chinese friends, most of them admire the United States and are grateful for our role in the Pacific War. China also helped the US during the war by tying down the majority of the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA). The IJA killed hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians after some of Doolittle's crew were rescued by Chinese after the raid on Tokyo as retaliation. The US did make a mistake of giving the Islands to Japan in 1970 without consulting China. I guess that was the cold war and we wanted to drive a wedge between China and Japan. We in the US should take the moral high ground and not get involved when China takes the Diaoyu Islands back.

    I am a Chinese and I can tell I hate many aspect of the Chinese culture. Stupid values like "saving face" and developing connections with corrupted officials to get a headstart in life.

    China is a land of hypocrisy. They think they are so nationalistic yet so quick to embrace Western values. Just look at their street advertisements. So many of them are filled with white people.

    No, Chinese (as well as Koreans) are smart at engaging public relations. Some people call it hypocrisy, I call it a brilliant tactic.

    The West needs the Chinese concept of saving face so we don't have stupid leaders like Blair and Obama.

    I just wonder how such a small fishing boat can hit that big coast guard ship? The captain is not stupid, and a giant coast guard ship is absolutely faster and stronger than a ordinary fishing boat——I've seen the picture comparing these two kind of ships, I guest everyone ever seen it can reason the real truth by a normal sense. Of course, you can chose to ignore this "unimportant" factor, and continue to claim for that"fishing boat attack our coast guard ship", that's also your freedom, to be clever or cheated by the government.

    If that fishing boat is motor powered (which it probably is if its off the Chinese shore), there is no way that large coast guard ship can hit the smaller fishing boat unless it chose not to move aside.

    Its like the whalefags Sea Shepards claiming they could be rammed by a bigger boat. Things don't work the same way on water then on land.

    Only on the inside, when Indonesia put the ban hammer on Chinese people and kicked them outta the country you think they cared if you don't think you are Chinese? They'd beat the shit outta you then ship you off on the next boat back. Not proud of being Chinese? well too bad look in the mirror everyday and you are what you are and everyone sees you that way. You're either willfully ignorant or fucking retarded.
