Obama Claims US-Japan Security Treaty Applies to Diaoyu Islands
Obama Claims for the First Time That Diaoyu Islands [aka Senkaku Islands] is under Japanese Administration — The president of the United States of America Barack Obama will be arriving in Japan on the 23rd as the first stop in his four-country tour of Asia. Before arriving in Japan, Obama accepted an exclusive written interview with Japan’s Yomiuri Shimbun, in which he made clear that that America’s policy is explicit–the Diaoyu Islands are administered by Japan, and therefore are under the scope of the fifth article of the US-Japan Security Treaty. This is also the first time ever that a president of the United States has made a clear statement regarding this issue.
Comments from NetEase:
The US-Japan Alliance is a product of the Cold War era, a balancing relationship of the previous era. Now that the Cold War has long ended, the relationship between Russia-US and China-US have shifted from adversarial to collaborative [or antagonistic to cooperative]. It is under this premise that the US has brought up the Pivot to Asia Strategy. Which is to say, the original Cold War era strategy of equilibrium is no longer suitable for today’s situation, so using the US-Japan Security Treaty as a cornerstone is also not appropriate.
Japan is making trouble, and the US is also very frustrated about it. A lion that has awaken must roar and no longer pretend to be asleep…
A meal of sushi was all that was needed [to get Obama to say what Japan wanted]… Too cheap.
Obama is also a lowly coward!
[I] strongly condemn you people!!!
Huff and puff all you want, China/Chinese didn’t grow up being afraid [being easily intimidated].
When can there be a Tokyo Massacre?

How can you say such a fucked-up thing?!
As long as our China rapidly develops, we can ignore them for now, because in the future, China will be the boss! Jia you.
The US just wants to start another war between us and Japan, so they can again rapidly develop.
This is precisely the kind of paper tiger that Imperialist America is. Even when it attacks a small or weak country, it calls up several dozen allies to go in together. It doesn’t have the guts to go head to head with China. Today, Imperialist America’s economy is in a depression, the unemployment rate remains high, its economic recovery weak. Obama is determined to drag little Japan into Imperial America’s carefully designed TPP trap, first using their speech about the Diaoyu Islands to get Japan to concede on TPP negotiations, to pave the way for Imperial America’s future economic invasion of little Japan. Meanwhile, the Ukraine crisis has also brought America’s power on the global stage into doubt, especially among America’s allies. Then add to this China’s rapid economic development and military expansion in recent years seriously threatening Imperialist America’s strategic balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region. Because Imperialist America’s ability to contain China’s development by itself is looking inadequate, it now needs little Japan as a pawn, to protect Imperial America’s strategic interests and to prove that its military power is not in decline. It is for these reasons that Imperial America publicly supports and welcomes little Japan to lift the ban on the right of collective self-defence!
Go on! We’ll go on with developing ourselves. Frankly, nobody dares set foot on the Diaoyu Islands right now anyway, because going is just asking for trouble! I pray to the sky to bless our Heavenly Kingdom, to give us another 30 years of peace to develop and accumulate robust national strength, to deal with domestic problems, and recover Taiwan! We love peace, but when it comes to the rise and fall of our nation, we are not afraid of death, and not afraid of dying with our enemies in war! Although internet angry youth are always complaining about this or that being unfair [criticizing domestic problems], I believe all that is just idle chat about life, and the opinion of the vast majority opinion is the same as ours, that isn’t our country gradually getting better?! As long as our countrymen are united, even the greatest suffering will be like nothing, and instead, we will pay back what our enemies do to us twofold! Jia you China!
The Diaoyu Islands has been Chinese territory since ancient times, and this is an indisputable fact. America, I hope you will behave more like how a major power should, walk the path of peace, mutual benefit, and win-win situations.
In the beginning, America said they’d remain mutual on this matter, and would not interfere with China or Japan regarding the Diaoyu Islands dispute, but it still ended up interfering. American imperialism, is this boldness? Or is this treating your words as farts [not taking ones words seriously]? Or is it…?
Obama is tough/daring…
Now Japan can feel relieved.
China, now you see, right? America will still help their own dog. It’s time to beat the dog.
Ha ha, Obama once again has something to ask of Japan! America is Japan’s dog!
Beware, this is a plot/scheme of America, to have China and Japan go to war, itself benefit from it, an attempt to disrupt China’s development. This now depends on the wisdom of the government [to not fall for the plot]. Strike down US-Japan reactionaries.
Send 100 strategic missiles at Okinawa, and the whole world will be at peace!
It’s not up to America to decide which country the Diayu Islands belong to. It’s up to us Second Artillery Corps.
Since America supports Japan in antagonizing China, what are we still waiting for? It’s time to take some practical action against America.
The situation now is becoming worse and worse. America and Japan are joining together to swallow up the Diaoyu Islands. It is simply a disgrace. Although I know there are “too few good people and too many bad people” [a lot of problems] in China right now, for the Diaoyu Islands, I’m still willing to donate all my assets–200,000 yuan–to help the country. I’m also willing to join the army to fight against both Japan and America in order to defend our territory, because I’m Chinese.
Support North Korea. The invincible North Korean People’s Army once said, machine guns can also destroy the Pentagon.
China can stand to be a little tougher [on this issue]!
The true colors of American politicians have been revealed, they can no longer conceal their true intentions. Chinese government, wake up! It’s not that we don’t want peaceful development, but just look at what those American politicians who say one thing but do another are doing around China.
Is Obama drunk?
