Don’t harbor illusions of impartial US (2)

(Global Times)

15:53, September 19, 2012

Japan claimed the US has agreed that the Diaoyu Islands fall within the purview of the US-Japan Security Treaty. China should show its stance to the US that China rejects any military presence in Diaoyu, and it will take military actions against such moves.

Japan has the actual control of the Diaoyu Islands. The US and Japan can make offensive moves at will. Only through taking firm actions, can our determination be firmer and we win back the initiative.

Sacrifices will be necessary in safeguarding Diaoyu. Chinese should be prepared for it. These sacrifices will not only improve the situation we are in over the Diaoyu dispute, but also lay a solid foundation for China's global status in the future.

The US urged China and Japan to solve the dispute peacefully, and stressed it did not take a stance on the issue, which is an admission there is a dispute. It serves as a blow for Japan's right-wing forces, which claim there is no dispute on the sovereignty of the Diaoyu Islands. It is China's attitude that made the US take this position.

The policy the US takes toward Diaoyu is far from US core interests. The US attitude can vary according to how strong China's approach is.
