"Hollywood documentary": are you joking? This guy is a porn producer hired to narrate this blatant piece of propaganda! As a Chinese, I find this truly embarrassing.

Can’t you really find another Westerner with better track record than someone featuring 16-year old girls in lesbian movies?
Among other gems, Chris Nebe’s Monarex has produced sex and horror movies such as “House of bondage”, “The naked cage” “Histoire d’Q”, “Bloodlust: The Black Forest Vampire (A true story)”.

2011, A Chinese showed a historical document which shows that Empress Cixi(慈禧太后) sent doctor Sheng Xuanhuai(盛宣怀) as a herb hunter to Senkaku. but it was a FAKE document.

If Chinese has clear evidences that Senkaku belongs to China, Chinese won't have to modify the evidence.

Chinese should give up Senkaku.

a. Not Official Rescript(詔書) format, No date(only "光緒十九年十月"(1893年))
b. Till 1893, Japan has ended the survey and controlled Senkaku.
but China didn't claim to Japan.
c. if any medical herbs were found in Senkaku, Japanese would have found it.
but there is no medical herbs
d. The document was not in Qing Dynasty's archive.

if you still believe Chinese fake story, it's your turn to show the ground.

At Cairo Conference Chinese Leader Chiang Kai-shek denied to control Okinawa including Senkaku after the war.

If Peple's Republic of China discard his promise, PRC won't be a successor of RoC.

So, People's Republic of China(PRC) has options.
a. PRC loses the membership of United Nations Permanent Security Council, and is claiming Senaku/Diaoyu.
b. PRC gives up Senkaku/Diaoyu.

Which do Chinese people like?

Are you okay?
it is not a matter of whether Taiwan has the right of the seat.
I mean...
It is a matter of "is People's republic of China a successor of Republic of China?"

If PRC accepts PRC is a successor of RoC, PRC's power will be limited to RoC's.
so, RoC's international agreements, statements should constrain PRC.
whether PRC want them to be or not.

Then who first controlled Senkaku? Japanese or Chinese?
First.,I'll start with this

a.
Chinese claim Senakaku was discovered by Chinse since Senakaku shows in the historical record "Voyage with a Tail Wind"(顺风相送) written in 1401

but "Voyage with a Tail wind" contains Nagasaki of 1570 or later.
("收入長崎港,有佛郎蕃住此" Portuguese stays in Nagasaki ~this is a fact of 1570 or later)
so, "Voyage with a Tail Wind" was rewriten after 1401 or later.
Thus "Chinese evidence is first" is unstable.

b.
If Chinese had controlled Senkaku. ...
Why did Chinese envoy Chen Kan(陈侃) need Okinawa people's pick up?

According to 使琉球録(record of missionary to Okinawa)
Okinawa fishermen knew Senkaku is a navigation marker for China-Okinawa trip.
but Chinese didn't know it. Why?

I have never heard rational reasons from Chinese on these points.

I hope you could reply to me on a. and b.

Doesn't matter what You think, UN doesn't recognize Taiwan as country but a province of China, Japan occupied it for 100 years and tried to turn it into theirs but had to return it to ROC after WWII, ROC and PRC are two CHINESE gov, whichever claim the island is fine and doesn't make a difference, it's still China's island, not Japan's. Japan needs to learn to have some shame. It's hard but try.

Chinese official map of 1970 shows Senkaku belongs to Japan.
how can Chinese say Senkaku belongs to China?

Where is that map? in the 70es both Japanese and Chinese leaders agreed to 'shelf' the issue and recognize it as issue not to talk about at the time and lead it to the new people to decide the fate of the island. But Japan had to tear off its fake mask and 'bought' it from a Japanese person, how silly and laughable.. lol... it's like some guy comes by and buys my house from his cousin, and call the corrupted police(America) for help  if others disagree they try to steal my house. Japan is always a shameless thief and liar, your earthquake is your punishment, now you pollute the world with your nuclear garbage and lobby people to accept your lies.  Your country has done nothing but harm. It needs to go away.

The bill was to punish anyone who agreed to commit felony. Your country has no freedom of speech.
Looks like Chinese enjoy pretending to be a victim but China has been in the aggressor side for thousands of years. China has no qualification to pretend to be a victim.

The flag you show off to everyone on your avatar is a flag commonly  used during WWII by Japanese army, it's recognized as the sign of imperialism.  Freedom? Your gov passed a bill to punish anyone speak against could face 1 - 2 year jail time.  Your ruling gov is composed of war criminals grandsons, No New People can become the leader, that's why you don't know anything. Why would they admit they were the descent of assholes that invaded and rape other countries?  Conflict of their own best interest. They would have to pay billions to the victims. Japan also legalized bitcoin, another sign of a fraud country.. Japan has always been a degenerated and barbaric place since the ancient time, Your pirates spread STD to Chinese villages even since Ming dynasty. Your men are psychos, highest suicide rate in the world, your women are sluts that cheat and sell their bodies at young age on the street of Tokyo, highest production of pornographic in the world, you must be so proud?  Of course, anyone who care to read and do their own research  knows Japaneses have no shame, full of lies, never admit anything you did wrong to other countries.and have the NERVE to tell other countries to Change Their Text Books about WWII? Not only Your Gov Lie to your people, you Force Others to Lie about WWII History, To Hide Your Shameful History? What kind of Ridiculous People are YOU? Go see a doc. Psycho.

no matter whether Japanese admitted to invade China and kill Chinese people or not, Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a heavy punishment for them.

Sorry, how old are you?

actually the young Japanese don't care about history while are willing to make good friends with Chinese. What does it mean? It means War is War, and friendship is friendship. War was end and friendship between two countries still keeps going in a better way.

Therefore don't use "Japanese" to stand for whole Japanese.

bruh do you know what propaganda is? Talking about propaganda, name one country that never used it. Americans use it all the time, Canadians use it during the war, both Koreas use it, all of European countries used it at one point. It's a tactic, nothing bad about it. Now, I can give proof that more people know that Japanese and Americans are liars than people who know that Chinese are liars, but that would take up more space than I like. I don't know what country you're from, but I think you just lied there, and the internet saw it. Lying is really subjective, and depends on how much you know, so if you don't know much about the Chinese, then it would be more like you're ignorant, not that you intently lied. Replying to the thread-starter, are you kidding me, only Japanese say truth? They lie about ownership of the Diaoyu Islands, for one thing. If you go search, Diaoyu Islands belonged to China long before the Japs "claimed" it, and without any consent from China, they "negotiated" it over with the Americans, who had nothing to do in that part of the world. And now they're shamefully claiming it as their own. Say I robbed a golden statue, and paid $3,0000 bribe to the police department. Then, I can claim it as my own, and the original owners would not beat me up? Is that what you're suggesting? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

+eastsouthnorth, who gave these 49 countries rights to determine Japanese sovereignty and America's administrative rights over Diaoyu Islands? in others words, what are their qualification? in 1951, just few years after the second world war. there were not fair and righteous world class organization at all. They decided this matter on the basis of political reason. if they used political reason to make decision, this result can hold of no account.

Diaoyu Islands belong to China.  Japan took it by force just like Dokdo and Taiwan because China didn't have strong navy to defend it in the past.  Do the right thing but I guess its not Japanese thing.  How much is enough to full fill their stomach with Asian blood?  Diaoyu is closer to China than Japan thus historically its belong to China in the past with Chinese claims first.  Using Okinawa as excuse is BS because Okinawa was separate country until Japan colonized it.  That is why during WW2, Japanese didn't care if all Okinawan were killed by American invasion.  Even now, lot of true Okinawan have hard feelings about it toward Japanese government.

Your ex-government Qing said Keelung City of Taiwan is the border of Chinese territory.
That's why both People's Republic of China and Republic of China treated the islands as Japanese territory until 1970. Just after UN found gas reserves around the area, both China began its territorial claims.

1950s[edit]
1957: Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke said to the people of Burma: "We view with deep regret the vexation we caused to the people of Burma in the war just passed. In a desire to atone, if only partially, for the pain suffered, Japan is prepared to meet fully and with goodwill its obligations for war reparations. The Japan of today is not the Japan of the past, but, as its Constitution indicates, is a peace-loving nation."[6]
1957: Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke said to the people of Australia: "It is my official duty, and my personal desire, to express to you and through you to the people of Australia, our heartfelt sorrow for what occurred in the war."[7]
1960s[edit]
June 22, 1965: Minister of Foreign Affairs Shiina Etsusaburo said to the people of the Republic of Korea: "In our two countries' long history there have been unfortunate times, it is truly regrettable and we are deeply remorseful" (Signing of the Treaty on Basic Relations between Japan and South Korea).
1970s[edit]
September 29, 1972: Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka said to the people of the People's Republic of China: "The Japanese side is keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious damage that Japan caused in the past to the Chinese people through war, and deeply reproaches itself. Further, the Japanese side reaffirms its position that it intends to realize the normalization of relations between the two countries from the stand of fully understanding 'the three principles for the restoration of relations' put forward by the Government of the People's Republic of China. The Chinese side expresses its welcome for this" (Joint Communique of the Government of Japan and the Government of the People's Republic of China).[8]
1980s[edit]

The Japanese Government and the Japanese people are deeply aware of the fact that acts by our country in the past caused tremendous suffering and damage to the peoples of Asian countries, including the Republic of Korea (ROK) and China, and have followed the path of a pacifist state with remorse and determination that such acts must never be repeated. Japan has recognized, in the Japan-ROK Joint Communique, of 1965, that the 'past relations are regrettable, and Japan feels deep remorse,' and in the Japan-China Joint Communique, that Japan is 'keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious damage that Japan caused in the past to the Chinese people through war and deeply reproaches itself.' These statements confirm Japan's remorse and determination which I stated above and this recognition has not changed at all to this day. 2. This spirit in the Japan-ROK Joint Communique, and the Japan-China Joint Communique, naturally should also be respected in Japan's school education and textbook authorization.
September 6, 1984: Emperor Hirohito said to President Chun Doo Hwan: "It is indeed regrettable that there was an unfortunate past between us for a period in this century and I believe that it should not be repeated again." (Meeting with President Chun Doo Hwan.)[10]

Since the end of the war, Japan has profoundly regretted the unleashing of rampant ultra nationalism and militarism and the war that brought great devastation to the people of many countries around the world and to our country as well" (Speech to the United Nations).
1989: Prime Minister Takeshita Noboru, in a speech in the Japanese Diet, said:"As we have made clear previously at repeated opportunities, the Japanese government and the Japanese people are deeply conscious of the fact that the actions of our country in the past caused suffering and loss to many people in neighboring countries. Starting from our regret and resolve not to repeat such things a second time, we have followed a course as a "Peace Nation" since then. This awareness and regret should be emphasized especially in the relationship between our countries and the Korean peninsula, our nearest neighbors both geographically and historically. At this opportunity as we face a new situation in the Korean peninsula, again, to all peoples of the globe, concerning the relationship of the past, we want to express our deep regret and sorrow (Speech in the Japanese Diet).
1990s[edit]
April 18, 1990: Minister of Foreign Affairs Taro Nakayama said to the people of the Republic of Korea: "Japan is deeply sorry for the tragedy in which these (Korean) people were moved to Sakhalin not of their own free will but by the design of the Japanese government and had to remain there after the conclusion of the war" (188th National Diet Session Lower House Committee of Foreign Affairs).[12]

I, as a prime minister, would like to once again express a heartfelt remorse and apology to the people of your nation".[15]
January 17, 1992: Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, at a policy speech on a visit to South Korea, said:. "What we should not forget about relationship between our nation and your nation is a fact that there was a certain period in the thousands of years of our company when we were the victimizer and you were the victim. I would like to once again express a heartfelt remorse and apology for the unbearable suffering and sorrow that you experienced during this period because of our nation's act." Recently the issue of the so-called 'wartime comfort women' is being brought up. I think that incidents like this are seriously heartbreaking, and I am truly sorry".[16]
July 6, 1992. Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Kato said: "The Government again would like to express its sincere apology and remorse to all those who have suffered indescribable hardship as so-called 'wartime comfort women,' irrespective of their nationality or place of birth.

As I listen to many people, I feel truly grieved for this issue. By listening to the opinions of people from various directions, I would like to consider sincerely in what way we can express our feelings to those who suffered such hardship" (Statement by Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Kato on the Issue of the so-called "Wartime Comfort Women" from the Korean Peninsula).[17]
August 4, 1993: Chief Cabinet Secretary Yōhei Kōno said: "Undeniably, this was an act, with the involvement of the military authorities of the day, that severely injured the honor and dignity of many women. The Government of Japan would like to take this opportunity once again to extend its sincere apologies and remorse to all those, irrespective of place of origin, who suffered immeasurable pain and incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women" (Statement by the Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono on the result of the study on the issue of "comfort women"),[18]

We would like to take this opportunity to clearly express our remorse for the past and a new determination to the world.

August 31, 1994: Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama said in a speech: "Japan's actions in a certain period of the past not only claimed numerous victims here in Japan but also left the peoples of neighboring Asia and elsewhere with scars that are painful even today. I am thus taking this opportunity to state my belief, based on my profound remorse for these acts of aggression, colonial rule, and the like caused such unbearable suffering and sorrow for so many people, that Japan's future path should be one of making every effort to build world peace in line with my no-war commitment. It is imperative for us Japanese to look squarely to our history with the peoples of neighboring Asia and elsewhere. Only with solid basis of mutual understanding and confidence that can be built through overcoming the pain on both sides, can we and the peoples of neighboring countries together clear up the future of Asia-Pacific.... On the issue of wartime 'comfort women,' which seriously stained the honor and dignity of many women, I would like to take this opportunity once again to express my profound and sincere remorse and apologies. With regard to this issue as well, I believe that one way of demonstrating such feelings of apologies and remorse is to work to further promote mutual understanding with the countries and areas concerned as well as to face squarely to the past and ensure that it is rightly conveyed to future generations. This initiative, in this sense, has been drawn up consistent with such belief" (Statement by Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama on the "Peace, Friendship, and Exchange Initiative").[22]

This was the second meeting between Prime Minister Hashimoto and Prime Minister Blair and we considered the meeting very important, especially this year. Making use of this opportunity, Prime Minister Hashimoto expressed his remorse and apology on behalf of the Government of Japan; this is very important. Prime Minister Blair fully understands the importance of the statement made by Prime Minister Hashimoto on this issue. His press opportunities after the talks objectively reflect what the two gentlemen talked about" (Press Conference by the Press Secretary).[28] In a follow-up interview, spokesman Tanaka for Prime Minister Hashimoto clarified that "Our sense of apology and our sense of remorse was addressed to all the countries which have gone through the experiences of the last world war."[29]

Recognizing that the issue of comfort women, with an involvement of the Japanese military authorities at that time, was a grave affront to the honor and dignity of large numbers of women, I would like to convey to Your Excellency my most sincere apologies and remorse to all the women who underwent immeasurable and painful experiences and suffered incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women.... By the Statement of Prime Minister in 1995, the Government of Japan renewed the feelings of deep remorse and the heartfelt apology for tremendous damage and suffering caused by Japan to the people of many countries including the Netherlands during a certain period in the past. My cabinet has not modified this position at all, and I myself laid a wreath to the Indisch Monument with these feelings on the occasion of my visit to the Netherlands in June last year" (The contents of the letter of the then Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto sent to ).[30]

President Kim accepted with sincerity this statement of Prime Minister Obuchi's recognition of history and expressed his appreciation for it. He also expressed his view that the present calls upon both countries to overcome their unfortunate history and to build a future-oriented relationship based on reconciliation as well as good-neighborly and friendly cooperation" (Japan-South Korea Joint Declaration A New Japan-South Korea Partnership towards the Twenty-first Century).[31]

The Japanese side is keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious distress and damage that Japan caused to the Chinese people through its aggression against China during a certain period in the past and expressed deep remorse for this. The Chinese side hopes that the Japanese side will learn lessons from the history and adhere to the path of peace and development.

2000s[edit]

We must not evade the weight of the past, nor should we evade our responsibilities for the future. I believe that our country, painfully aware of its moral responsibilities, with feelings of apology and remorse, should face up squarely to its past history and accurately convey it to future generations" (Letter from Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi to the former comfort women).[38]

WW2 was ended by 2 most important documents 1945 - THE Cairo Declaration and Potsdam's Declaration. In these 2 documents, it was clearly stated that all territories invaded and occupied by Japan has to be returned to original owners. Japan's territory is limited to her 4 local islands - Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku ( the message is simple and clear). But in 1951  due to Cold War and revenge of Korean War, US unilaterally signed the so-called San Francisco Treaty with Japan, at the ABSENCE of Mainland China,  Taiwan China, Soviet Union to hand-over the Adminstration ( but not the Sovereignty ) of Diaoyu Islands to Japan ( sowing the seed for future conflict & dispute between China and Japan).  Right away  in July and August 1951, both mainland China ( PM Chou En Lai) and Taiwan China ( President Chiang Kai Shek) protested strongly against such a sneaky political set-up. The event and protests are registered in United Nation's record

+Wayne Tong I don't think China will fall into the trap. The dispute between China and Japan involves the US, which is truly a geopolitical struggle between the three parties. It is totally inappropriate to have the case adjudicated in the ICJ. The only way is for China to become very strong economically, militarily against the US and Japan, in order to have a chance to settle the issue, otherwise talking law is not going to solve the dispute. We can say that even the ICJ awards Japan the winner, the issue is not going to go away. This is why China will never agree to have the issue presented to the ICJ. Japan may have some publicity advantage in the short run due to China's refusal to go to the ICJ. But in the longer term, China will have a more favorable position in any negotiation.

When Japan seized the islands in 1895, using annexation, using the so-called international law platform,  did Japan ask the ICJ?  Did Japan asked China for opinion? No. It was done with force and in silence. China simply will not let Japan use the international law platform again. From now on, it will be strength that will dictate the outcome for the islands, not law.

The Core of China was so called "Zhongyuan(中原)", where stayed between two rivers Yangtze and Yellow. The other regions were seized by Invasions. in 1940s, Tibet and East Turkistan were seied. then the next target was Vietnam. though Vietnamese repelled Chinese. China enclosed South Chna Sea with quite strange 9 dotted line. Thus China became larger.  Who told China had not invaded?

Country of Japan actually is a savage nation; nowadays they are being themselves to be very polite in order to cover their barbaric.

+Anthony WongKL It won't happen because the western leaders see China & Russia as a threat economically & militarily. Don't forget that the whole western media is owned by the very same people pushing for a military confrontation with Russia & China. Speaking hyperthetically here,
if a certain western nation say for instance Britain were to take up China's claim & back it, nothing will change, because the western media is controlled by the warmongers. 1) US & indeed the whole western media will alienate any country that wants to help solve this issue. 2) the US inteligence agencies along with other allied agencies will target any country that shows any form of independence that strts working with China to solve the issue. The US will never allow this. Its a fact. Because if theres no war or conflicts, the US arms industry ( Military industrial

Japan is a coward and unlike the German.

Your gov lie to you on the textbook since you are all just babies, no one expect you to understand or agree the truth.  America tried to hide all the evidence and use Japan against China, Japan itself is just another asshole country.

During the years, China has caused Korean War, Sino-Indian War, Sino-Soviet War, Sino-Vietnamese War, etc.
"Japan has yet a lot to learn from China on how to live peacefully and internationally. "
Are you joking?
Japan apologized and paid war reparations for the past aggression.

+MrWowfire Taiwan flag is Dr. Sun's chosen design in 1911. That's new China's original design. Both Chiang and Mao were admirers and followers of Dr. Sun. They were all patriotic people searching a way they believed in  to save China from a 200 years' pitfall. When Mao in power, no doubt he has made some painful mistakes like Big Leap Forward, Cultural Revolution etc. However I don't  think he did bad things to kill his country man intentionally because no leader in the right mind would like to run his country to the ground. At that time, even Russian leaders didn't know Communist's system didn't work in practice.
