The Diaoyu Island and its affiliated islets have been China's territory since ancient times. Japan not only refuses to cancel its wrong decision of the so-called "nationalizing the Diaoyu Islands" but puts the "hat" of damaging the regional stability on China. Then, let discuss who is damaging the regional stability.
In the modern history, once Japan became strong, it would definitely harm other countries. Many Asia-Pacific countries and the United States were deeply afflicted by it. After the Second World War, right-wingers of Japan still keep beautifying Japan's invasion history and Japanese politicians also keep putting salt on wounds of the victim countries.
In recent years, many moves by Japan have caused concerns. Japan is implementing a "dynamic defense" military strategy, has upgraded its National Defense Department into National Defense Ministry, is using various excuses to expand its armament, buy new fighter planes and build battleships similar to the aircraft carrier, and frequently tenses the regional situation. In June 2012, the Diet of Japan approved the amendments of its "Atomic Energy Basic Act" and "Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Act." In the beginning of July, the "national strategic conference" of the Japanese government advised the Noda administration to admit the "right of collective self-defense" and Yoshihiko Noda declared to actively discuss about it in the Diet. These moves are challenges to the international order after the Second World War and are shaking the foundation of Japan's Peace Constitution.
