How to Solve the Conflict Between China and Japan

In Sep, 2010, conflicts between China and Japan became serious. The major argument was related to the ownership of a island near the border of these two countries. It starting when a Chinese ship was captured by Japan in that area and its captain was detained for more than a half month.

During that time Chinese society and government made strong protests. Many activities between these two countries were canceled. Chinese tourists slowed down their trips to Japan. The meeting about developing an oil mine in the East Sea was postponed. Chinese are going to drill for oil from their sea that is near Japan. Japanese worry that the oil will actually come out of Japan’s area. Being considerate the Chinese agreed to develop that place together. Stopping the negotiation made the Japanese upset. When Japan ignored Chinese protests and continued detaining the Chinese Captain, the Chinese detained four Japanese for getting into a Chinese military base illegally. Chinese also limited tombarthitie export to Japan and tombarthitie is the crucial material for high tech industry. The last action really bothers the Japanese. It seems Japan depends on China intensely and in no way that they can fight against China.

The Japanese capturing a Chinese ship and crews shows that Japan are very desperate for Diao Yu island where it might have oil. However, occupying it does not mean that they have chance to drill for oil there because Chinese believe that island belongs to China. It should have been returned to China after the Second World War. If Japan insists on developing that place the Chinese will surely take military action. U.S government did not openly support any side but gave a hint that U.S had obligation to protect the Japanese. They showed their modern weapon in that area as well. For the financial situation American encounter U.S will be unable to financially support a war in Asia. Even though they want they do have excuse. The dispute between China and Japan does not relate to democracy but simply about the ownership of a territory in the sea. Guided by the concept of cold war, the Americans set up assumed enemies all these years. We could not win the wars in Korea, in Vietnam and even in Afghanistan. How can we win a war against China which has 20% of the population of this world? Even if Japan is supported by the United States they still cannot win the war. Or I should say neither side can win the war. That means after a huge loss in the war no one can actually get a benefit from the island where it might have oil.

In my opinion, Japanese should give up the island even though they believe that is their property. The reason is simple and clear. From 1938 -1946 Japan attacked China and practiced Three All Policy there. They kill all, loot all and burn in the places they occupied. Twenty million Chinese were killed and 15 million were wounded in the war. The economic loss it created was unable to be estimated. However, for that the Japanese paid no compensation, not even a penny. They did give some free interest loan to China some years later and that obviously is not enough. If China needs that island the Japanese should give it up and consider that is the compensation for the war. They should make a serious apology for their invasion in The Second World War. This being justice, the U. S government should take the same position.

The next step the Japanese can take is to request the possibility of developing the place together with China. This is not a dream. The Chinese even agreed to stop drilling for oil from their territory in the sea to consider the Japanese feeling. That is why they had a meeting with Japan regarding the North Sea oilfield. As a Chinese I do not mind the proposal because I notice living in islands Japan is short of resources. China is not a greedy country due to the culture they have. They admire Confucius and Lao Zi just like Western people endorse gods. Confucius suggested to handle things moderately. Once Confucius’ student asked him if he had to use one word to guide his life what would be the word. Confucius said the word “ Forgive”. Lao Zi recommended “Yield’—let the others have what they want. Yield does not mean I am afraid of you but means I just do not fight with you. Guided by this principle, Chinese successfully solved their territory disputes with Russia. They share an island in their border and develop it together. I can tell that Chinese government really wants to see a united Asia. This was also a dream the Japanese had many years ago when they launched the Second World War. Why don’t China and Japan fulfill the dream together through another means but not war because war gives harms both sides. No one can win in a war, even a war between the country as big as United States and the power as small as Taliban. For eliminating wars we need negotiation. To get into negotiation we need to be considerate. A Chinese quotation said: if we step backward a bit, we will see the sky is broad and the ocean is wide.

We should use the same principle to solve the conflicts in the Middle East. Israelis should put themselves in the position of Palestinian and Palestinian should try to think as an Israelis. All the money we spent in the Middle East wars had being used to develop that area the Middle East would be much more prosperous than today. Getting benefits from the prosperity, Arab people have no reason to eliminate Israel . Mankind should realize that there will be no winner in a war. Saddam Hussein was killed and it looks like he was a looser. His people are still fighting today and give Iraq no peace. One side losing doesn’t mean that another side will gain. All we can see is both sides will be destroyed in a war. Peace is more import than democracy and freedom. I hardly see the U.S government encouraging negotiation in this world. I always see they back up one side against another side. Maybe people who control the government can get benefits in conflicts or in wars. If things are like that, it is a tragedy for our earth and it is a shame for Americans.
