China, Senkaku Islands, Japan and the USA

China, Senkaku Islands, Japan and the USA
All over China there are massive demonstrations and riots.  The mobs are upset with Japan.  Recently the Japanese family owning the deed to the Senkaku Islands (also known as Diaoyu Islands in China, and Tiaoyutai Islands in Taiwan or the Pinnacle Islands) sold the islands to the Japanese government. 

The sale of the islands angered the commie-led government in Beijing (China) and the people of The Middle Kingdom – China.  The mobs in many Chinese cities have been rioting, smashing windows to Japanese related business, turning over Japanese made automobiles, and rioting in front of the Japanese Embassy.

All this taking place while the police basically stand by and watch.  The rioters were seen plummeting the police with eggs and soda bottles without any lash back from the police.  When non-violent demonstrations take place by Buddhist Tibetans in Tibet, the commie police greet the demonstrations with bullets.  When the Muslim Uyghur’s / Uighurs in East Turkistan referred to by the commies as Xinjiang, protest they too are on the receiving end of bullets from the commie police. 

In 1969 the Communist government of China produced a map showing the Senkaku Islands as belonging to Japan.  The islands only became disputed when it was thought the waters off the islands contain huge deposits of oil and gas.  That is when the commies claimed the islands belonging to China.  Seems like recently anywhere in the waters off Asia where oil or gas or discovered or thought to be, those waters and associated islands become part of China.  If oil or gas is ever discovered in Manila, then Manila in the Philippines will become part of China, according to the belligerent commies in China.    

The commie bullies in China have island claims against Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei, and Japan.  The commies are using their military and economic might to bully their neighbors, steal land and waters which were never part of The Middle Kingdom.  

Recently China’s commie General Xu Caihu, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission was quoted as saying that military forces should be “prepared for any possible military combat.” 

China is upset with the USA also.  Because the USA will install in Japan a second missile defense radar system.  What is it about the word “defense” that upsets the commies?   Hmmm?
