China, Japan island fight reignites with population push

The Japanese government recently announced plans to populate a cluster of minute, rocky islands located almost equidistant between Okinawa and Taiwan — a move that has reignited a decades-long dispute with China over sovereignty of the tiny territories.

According to Japanese officials, the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans next month to legally designate the Senkaku Islands – known in China as the Diaoyu Islands – as inhabited border territories. Amid the goals of the plan, which stems from a law passed last year, is a call for the construction of civic facilities, the purchasing of land, the improvement of ports and stopping foreign vessels from illegally visiting the islands.

Along with the Senkaku Islands, Japan will also designate another 143 remote islands – with 71 receiving special attention for their isolation and population decline – as part of a plan to secure the country’s sprawling archipelago of around 6,800 islands from the dual threat of territory-hungry neighbors and a long-term decrease in population.

“Prime Minister Abe is very conservative and a nationalist,” Zhiqun Zhu, a political science professor and director of the China Institute at Bucknell University, told Fox News. “So this move is not very surprising, but it’s going to be counterproductive in terms of relations with China.”

        I DOUBT THAT CHINA’S MARINES WOULD BE USED FOR PROTECTING NORTH KOREA IN LIGHT OF CHINA’S INIATIVES IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA AND THE YELLOW SEA AND THE SEA OF JAPAN “WHERE IN” THE FORMER TWO SEA’S THEY HAVE BUILT ARTIFICIAL ISLANDS (WHICH ARE “NOT” DEPICTED ON “ANY” INTERNATIONAL SEA MAPS) ON TOP OF SUBMERGED CORAL ATOLS AND TURNED THEM INTO MILITARY BASES WITH AIR STRIPS, PLATFORMS FOR LAND TO AIR MISSILES AND LAND TO SEA MISSILES ALSO RESUPPLY BASES, WITH PORTS FOR MILITARY SHIPS …ALL TO CUT OFF INTERNATIONAL SEA LANES AND EXSTEND THEIR CLAIMS OF TERRITORAL WATERS TO THEIR MAINLAND TO INCLUDE THE AIR SPACE SURROUNDING THESE ARTIFICIAL ISLANDS…..THE SEA OF JAPAN HAS “LONG” DISPUTED ISLANDS CLAIMED BY CHINA AND TRADITIONALLY HELD BY JAPAN, HERE CHINA HAS WARNED JAPAN VIA VIELED THREATS OF WAR TO CLAIM THEM BY FORCE. JAPANS RESPONSE LAST WEEK WAS TO ANNOUNCE JAPAN WAS GOING TO POPULATE THESE ISLANDS WITH CITIZENS AND TROOPS…..SO THE “PROVOCATION” FOR ESCALATION IS THERE…DEEP PLANNING FOR THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE FOR THIS AGGRESSION INCLUDES THE USE OF 100,000 NEW MARINES TO ASSAULT AND SECURE ALL THESE ISLANDS MENTIONED….YOU CAN BET ON IT. …IN FACT…YOU CAN COUNT ON IT…
