    She does such a great job at public speaking. That always impresses me about her.

      The fundamental aversion of Japan in bringing any case to court, regarding the islands, saying there is “no dispute” is because Japan knows it has no legal title to the properties.

      The annexation on 1895 was absolutely illegal at the time. It was carried in total secrecy, and done without the normal approval of the Japanese emperor. It was a act of stealing.

      It happened in the midst of a war with China (1895), same year but only three months before signing the Treaty of Shimonoseki (1895), in which Taiwan was ceded, together with all affiliated islands. China was silent when Japanese occupied the islands, thinking that they were part of Taiwan. In fact the islands were under the administration of Yilan County, Taiwan, within the Qing Chinese empire.

      Logic that Japan is the possessing party, and China is the disputant is therefore rather odd as well. It is natural for the thief to avoid the justice system at all cost, because he knows how and where he got the stolen properties.

      The real question is who is the real owner of the property. Can a thief argue that since he possess the property, he is the owner? My point is very simple: a thief knows he is a thief. Japan “knows” deep down it is dangerous to go to court when all the evidence, history and the result of the second world war, are all stacked against it.
