More than a decade ago, Deng tried to initiate talks with the Japanese regarding his proposal to jointly share resrouces in the East Sea and to reach an agreement over the Diaoyu Islands. The fact that the Japanese immediately rejected the proposal shows Japan's desperate reliance on imported energies. Little did China know at the time that it would surpass Japan to become the world's 2nd largest importer of oil.|
Till today, unfortunately, Japan has managed to retain its leverage over China, which should NOT be the case considering their political insignificance and un-accounted war crimes. The reason why Japan has been able to achieve all these is its economic dominance, which is sustained by prolific private sector innovations. China, therefore, has to combat Japan on the economic battleground, with consumer technology as its weapon. The war can be won with a good combination of defense and offense, provided that China creates the right socio-economic enviornment for technological innovations. Japan had fought such a war too, losing against the US in the beginning but quickly becoming a fierce competitor.
I hope that I will one day see high-quality Chinese branded names in electronics, automotive, and other industries. To achieve this, China must start investing its next generation engineers and scientists now! I believe its obsession with TW is limiting its spending on education; the money that should have been spent to education has been going into developing weapons to attack TW.
China is a member of security council, with de-facto support from France and Russia, I don't see why it should get so agitated over a small island. China should concentrate on its own economic development with policies designed to combat its true rival - the Japanese.
