Japanese government security personnel set foot on the Diaoyu Islands on the evening of Sept. 21 and Japanese right-wing groups launched anti-China demonstrations in Tokyo on Sept. 22, clamoring for "permanently station Japanese Self-Defense Forces on the Diaoyu Islands."

It has been a long time since Japanese right-wing forces made troubles over the Diaoyu Islands issue. The Japanese government and the right-wing forces had a mutual use on the Diaoyu Islands issue under the background of accelerated right-deviationist Japanese politics, increasingly tough diplomatic means and strained relations with neighboring countries.

As the Japanese economy has remained in the doldrums for 20 years, a hard line against China has become some Japanese politicians’ political magic weapon.
