Chinese dragons against the Japanese samurai, or China is on the way Damanskii

"The Japanese currently have hard times in China", "The Japanese are fleeing from China." Approximately the global press is full of headlines these days are. And the reason for the hectic life of the Japanese China associated with the islands of the Senkaku (Diaoyu), which discusses the controversial status and Beijing, and Tokyo all soon. At the "Military Review" has published several materials on the dilemma of the archipelago, which the authorities consider their China and Tokyo made a step towards the nationalization of these areas.

Everyone saying that the authorities of the two countries can not lure rocky land several islands lost in the sea, and not even the wealth of marine life in these waters. The desire of Chinese and Japanese politicians is shelf which, if you believe the results of research, contains a very impressive supplies of hydrocarbons, apparently unable to prevent either the Chinese economy, the economy of any country of the rising sun.

At the time, while the streets of Chinese cities filled with well-organized crowds of people carrying red banners and portraits majestically helmsman — Mao Zedong, hundreds of fishing boats, as reported by the press in Hong Kong, from the provinces of Fujian and Zhejian heading towards the Senkaku (Diaoyu) to start fishing for seafood . Of course, that such fishing fleet against the anti-Japanese speeches in Chinese towns looks provocative. That's why in the Senkaku archipelago inhabitants of the country of the rising sun decided to strengthen the grouping of Coast Guard ships. But, as it turns out later, the Chinese, it obviously is not scared, and therefore the area of the disputed territories (or waters) Beijing sent its patrol ships, which reportedly will cover Chinese fishermen from potential attacks from the Japanese.

As you can see, Asians went not to joke. A if take into account that now the fever is not only East Asia, and most of the countries of the Muslim world, the modern geopolitical picture looks quite so dark. How would XXI century in the yard, and after reports from global media situation in human and economic terms, recalls a cross between the threshold of the second world war and the usual Middle Ages. It is becoming evident that the whole modern world resembles a large powder magazine, a descent into several compartments which someone lights a match demonstrative, one awkward action — and the whole line up system for decades will probably exploded in down and remains.

If we talk about how far the Chinese and the people of the country of the rising sun can log in own confrontation, then there can be controlled materials in 1969 about events on the peninsula Sino-Soviet. Certainly, to hold any direct parallels with the present days are not worth it, because at the time of the geopolitical situation in the world has changed in a meaningful way, but all the same conclusions from Damanskii conflict that broke out between the USSR and China, can be done.

Thus, the current situation looks like this: Japan says that it intends to buy three of the five Senkaku islands in the personnel of the owner. Tokyo explains his actions in that, after the second World War, the United States of America on the Rights of the 1st of the favorites have become so referred to as the Southern territories, which then voluntarily handed over the Land of the Rising Sun. PRC authorities are convinced that the U.S. simply wrongfully transferred the island, which until 1895 belonged to China, and were later captured by Japan. Allegedly, the island after 2 September 1945 had to retreat back to China. Is there a party to the dispute, which is exactly right — very hard to read. Of course one thing that both sides are ready for the most decisive act.

Recall that the Senkaku (Diaoyu) — a tiny archipelago, which are placed on the shelf of large supplies of hydrocarbons.
With all of this, many people are saying that China — the country pragmatic, and therefore will have to renounce territorial claims to the land of the rising sun, so as not to aggravate the situation. Alignment of professionals about the subsequent: Beijing and Tokyo in the end turn out to agree on the sharing of natural WEST Senkaku (Diaoyu).

Will it? — The big question …

Doubt in this regard appear due to the fact that China is actually saying, and Japan, as solid nuts. If we talk about the very Damanskiy conflict in March 1969, the fire broke out, in this case almost rovnenky place. If the ownership of the Senkaku promises possession of great natural wealth, the Sino-Soviet possession that every time after the flood left under water, no signs rovnenky nothing. Is that seasonal trading business, which apparently did not have a huge economic impact of a positive nature.

But Beijing and then Mao was not confused. The Chinese in 1969, realizing that before it the Soviet Union — the enemy of great strength, which defeated in the not so long ago, ending a major war and a steel hand trying to put your own order in Eastern Europe, not braked in terms of their own territorial claims to Moscow. It would seem, is to shed blood because of the island on the Ussuri area of 0.74 square kilometers? It would seem that you can sit down at the negotiating table and to agree, but the script has gone the way of the military conflict. Beijing has accused Moscow of imperial ambitions and said it will defend every inch of land, which he considers his own. At this time in the towns of China took to the streets 10's of thousands of people who shouted anti-Soviet slogans and declared that they are ready to give their lives for each meter of the Chinese land. As this land (peninsula Damanskii) was Chinese, now is a lot to discuss, but in 1969, the Chinese authorities did not prevent "the people expressed their opinion" (by Russian attacks diplomatically missions as well), and tried to show himself and the world that are ready to close everything.

In the end, the March of warfare (March 2 and 15 1969 years) between the Russian and Chinese troops on both sides Damanskiy lost only killed over 1000 people. How would then Russian Alliance struck a severe blow to China and the issue of territorial ownership of the island was settled. But in fact, turned out completely wrong … In October 1969, talks were held between the Russian and the Chinese authorities, with the result that the agreement was signed, which was carried out in the demarcation of the border. These agreements after the collapse of the Soviet Union served as a pretext for Beijing to completely clean up the Sino-Soviet arms. Now the island Damanskii we do not find even in the most detailed map of the world, but in its place you can behold the peninsula Zhenbao, which belongs to China …

Here's to you, as they say, and China's reluctance to bring to the bloodshed, that's for you and the joint development of the disputed territories, that's for you and the presence of severe enemy. The Chinese authorities are simply cleverly used the political situation and waited the required time while peninsula himself or sailed to their "safe hands of the Chinese."

Of c
ourse, that if China decided not to stop in front of the intended purpose in March 1969, then that still prevents to go to Beijing to "finish" now? But the situation in China over the past 43 years has changed dramatically. From a country that was known, except that own large population, China turned into a powerful geopolitical player, who has the very position in the world can force the dot on the «i» in the dispute over the Diaoyu Islands.

If someone is confident that Beijing may suspend the U.S. position, stood up for Japan, it is less than an illusion. Of course, the Americans will not cause any impact on China, even if he planned to rake up the Diaoyu wealth. Notwithstanding the magnitude of U.S. ambitions to tame China State now apparently not under force, and the government of China is well aware of.

If we talk about the present Sino-Japanese dispute based on the belief that anyone can support our homeland, the answer can there be a general and categorical: no one! At this time, the country came together, which itself providence because of their endless territorial ambitions (and the Russian Federation in particular) has decided to bump heads.

In this case there is only the subsequent state: do not give in to anyone, but if you can wait for that to aggravate ready no matter which party. It is entirely possible that the only thing one muscle-flexing by both the Middle Kingdom, and the Land of the Rising Sun is complete. No desire to treat bloody scenarios, but they are entirely probable.
