On Sept. 10, the Japanese government announced to "purchase" the Diaoyu Islands and its affiliated islets, officially implementing the so-called "nationalization." This is a farce under the background of the United States' return to Asia-Pacific strategy.
Japan took advantage of the United States' commitment of "helping defend the Diaoyu Islands" to embolden itself. Meanwhile, it is also Japan's active collaboration with the United States' strategy of "return to Asia-Pacific" to contain the peaceful rise of China.
The deeper conspiracy that Japan made troubles on the Diaoyu Islands issue is to disrupt the strategic plan of China to rise peacefully.
Japan finds it harder to adapt to the rise of China than the United States. In 2010, Japan's status as the world's second largest economy was replaced by China, which made Japan jealous, annoyed and depressed.
