Noda's thief logic and lies

(People's Daily Online)

14:20, September 29, 2012

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda recently said at the United Nations General Assembly that it is the philosophy of the Charter of the United Nations, as well as a shared principle in the international community, to settle disputes in a peaceful manner based on international law. Obviously, Japan is using international law to defend itself against accusations of provoking territorial and maritime disputes.

Now let us take a look at the thief logic and lies in Noda's high-sounding remarks on behalf of the Japanese government.

"Any state has a responsibility to protect peace, ensure the safety of its people, and protect its sovereignty, territorial land and sea. Japan will also fulfill such responsibility in accordance with international law," Noda said.

His remarks seem to be in line with the principles and spirit of the Charter of the United Nations. However, "protecting" another country's "sovereignty, territorial land and sea" as if they were Japan's is no different from "infringing."

According to such international agreements as the Cairo Declaration and Potsdam Proclamation, the Diaoyu Islands and Taiwan usurped by Japan should have been restored to China. The Cairo Declaration used "steal" to describe how Japan captured Chinese territory.

Noda is a thief and a pathological liar. He twists and tuen when caught red-handed. He is trying to explain hia way out of thieving. There is apparently no difference between a common shoplifter and Noda - both should face justice - sooner or later!
