Note - Pearl Harbor and Senkaku are synonymous - both woke up sleeping tigers. The USA took Japan to the cleaners; especially with "The Bomb." Now it is China's turn and again it will probably end when China drops thier Bomb.
I don't want to see this as everyone is aspiring toward nuclear bombs and this could mean the end of the world as we know it today. A good leader would lead both China and Japan away from any further confrontation -but where will we find a good leader - certainly not in the USA - but how about the aged Masahide Ota of Okinawa ?

Surprise! Why not consider the former governor of Okinawa Masahide Ota - He works well with the President of China and get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar

@Crystalyle; You just wrote it all - the first nation to drop the bomb will end our world as we know it today. Today's missle is BAD - it can spell fini for the world. Talking does not fill bodybags. Incidentally, you can Google up the Cairo Accords and the Potsdam Declaration. I am a WW2 veteran and I am 91 years old. Wait till I am long gone before this action gets any worse.

Greedy Japan! All this could have been averted if Japan had recognized the Cairo Accord of 1943 where-in Japan was to return all lands taken by violence or greed. The Ryukyu Islands allways got along with C hina and I predicted that China would share with Okinawa, but Japan spend all thier time mouthing off about the islands that were taken from them as per the Cairo Accords. I say forget it or you could contribute to what could be the end of the world.

I suggest you read Gavan McCormack's book "Resistant Islands" before any hasty movement be set in motion

Read Gavan McCormack's book "Resistant Islands" and you see just who should control the Senkaku Islands and it none of the above.

Marion Wm SteeleAug. 18, 2012 - 11:42PM JST
Know this; First and foremost, Senkaku was the possesion of the Kingdom of the Ryukyus, but Japan annexed the whole of the Kingdom and I hoped the Cairo Accords was going to give the Kingdom of the Ryukyus, but greedy Japan is still fighting to keep all the lands they took by "violence or greed" - now, the Ryukyuans get along very well with the Chinese and they would be content to share the Senkakus with China and it could mean great monies to Okinawa, but Japan continues to build a scab on its nose and Japan is still angry over the Kuriles etc and they flirt with an angry China who just might spank them. Frankly , I am on China's side. (I also love the Ryukyuan people.)

Note: So far, the only way that we can control cancer cells, is to bolster the immune systen as a healthy immune system will kill cancer cells. Chemo, radiation and surgery are destructive and only a healthy immune systen can kill cancer cells.

I would like to see a poll on the relationship between Okinawa and Japan. Remember that Japan made okinawa the battlefield for WWII and Okinawa lost hundreds of thousands of thier populance in a war that Okinawa had nothing to do with.

Japan is breeding a scab on its nose and I feel China is at the end of their patience - the Senkakus Islands belonged to the Kingdom of the Ryukyus. No way has Greedy Japan hs anything to say and further bickering and Japan will be feeling the ire of the Chinese and this time China will be the stronger of the two. Frankly, King Sho had warmer feeling for China than they did for Japan.

I WILL STILL VOTE FOR RON PAUL BECAUSE HE IS A REAL AMERICAN and one day you will find out that Obama was not born in the USA - he is a phoney running the biggest scam ever pulled on the people of the USA.

Allow me to remind all the bloggers above that all this could have been resolved if greedy Japan had returned the Ryukyu Islands to the Ryukyuans as per the Cairo Accords of 1943 "All lands taken by violence or greed shall be returned" But no, Japan had to fight for Okinawa at the meeting in San Francisco after the end of WW2.
Simple: Okinawa and China get along swimmingly and Japan and China are at each others throats - with no end in sight!
Return the Ryukyu Islands to sovereignty and you will see the bickering stop in a quick minute.
