They only read what Chinese write in English.

They only listen to Chinese speaking in English.

They then see a map of the Far East to see the Senkaku Islands so closer to the Chinese Continent than to mainland Japan.

Eventually, The New York Times wrote virtually that they had a feeling that the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea belong to China (but not to Taiwan).

I do not request The New York Times' elites to learn Japanese to be able to read so many Japanese opinions and so much evidence made open over the Internet. But, how many Japanese employees are there in The New York Times? Japan is the authentic second largest and advanced economic power in the world. But, nobody can read and understand Japanese in The New York Times? (How many in The New York Times could read and understand Arabic before September 11, 2001?)

Now, BBC should not disappoint Japanese in the same manner.

SECTION I: East China Sea Has Oil/Gas More Than Iraq

BBC is nice to focus on Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan, with the title: "Japanese PM Naoto Kan warns of China's military rise."

But, BBC's map suggesting the location of Chinese gas drilling platforms is wrong. It is too close to Okinawa.

It must be on the middle point between the south edge of the Hangzhou Gulf (south of Shanghai) and the Okinawa Main island.

It can be confirmed even in a map prepared by China for itself.

The location of China's Gas drilling facilities in the BBC's map is on the border China claims as the continental shelf extends to the location near Okinawa.

Japan claims the border between economic zones of the two countries must be on the middle points at the same distance from each territorial sea.

Remember that Japan's claim conforms to the widely practiced international standards, but China's does not.

BBC should think about merit the U.K. will enjoy if Chinese military expansion and diplomatic lawfulness prevail as far as near the Thames.

Finally, Japan's sea territories and its exclusive economic zones are as follows:

SECTION II: Japan's ODA to China

Every Chinese must understand this.

Every Chinese must be let to know this.

Research on Japan's ODA to China and It's Contribution to China's Development∗

Zhigang Wu
Liaoning University of Technology


For a variety of reasons many Chinese people don't know much about Japan's ODA to China. However since 1979, over the past 30 years, Japan’s ODA to China has played a very important role in China's reform and open as well as in the social and economic development. From that time to the present China has altogether obtained approximately 3.4 trillion (3,400,000,000,000) Japanese Yen loans (approximately 224,800,000,000 Renminbi Yuan) as well as other types of technical cooperation assistance and grant aid etc.. Over the past 30 years Japan is the largest donor country to China, China is also the largest recipient country to Japan. Japan's official assistance to China stands for over 60% of all bilateral aid provided to China in all donor countries. Many large-scale construction projects that have been built or being built from Japan's Yen loans or grant aid can be found in China's provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities. There is no doubt that Japan’s ODA to China has made a great contribution for China's social and economic development as well as people’s living level improvement. The paper will start researching the question from this point, namely what is ODA, and how about Japan ODA's history in postwar, and then studies the related background about Japan's ODA to China, it's characteristics as well as it's great achievements during the course of China’s development in economy and people's living condition improvement etc., and in the end the article draws a conclusion that Japan's ODA to China has made great contribution to China's Development.

Every Chinese in America and Chinese Americans living in the U.S. must understand this.

Every Chinese in America and Chinese Americans must be let to know this.

It is so, since the Chinese Communist Party and Government have hidden this fact from the Chinese people, though Chinese Premier Chou En-lai shook hands with Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka in Beijing in 1972.

In this meeting for normalization of the relationship between Japan and China, Chou En-lai virtually confessed that China started to claim its right on the Senkaku Islands due to crude oil fields that had been discovered a few years before. The greatest hero of the Chinese Communist Party Chou En-lai understood why the Islands belonged to Japan, since he must have learnt the history of relationships between the Empire of Japan and the Ching Dynasty who had never made an objection against a territorial declaration over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea by the Empire of Japan.

The Ching Dynasty thought the Okinawa (Ryukyu) Kingdom was subject to the Chinese Empire for so long, so that it did not need to set a kind of borders (to station soldiers) between Ching and Okinawa. However, the Okinawa Kingdom was conquered by a samurai lord of Satsuma in Kyusyu of mainland Japan in 1609. Yet, Satsuma, who also belonged to the samurai regime in Edo (Tokyo), had Okinawa continue to bring a tribute to Ching as before, since trade with Ching was very profitable even for Satsusma.


But, when Okinawa stopped to take a gesture of submission to Ching after it was directly governed by the Imperial Government in Tokyo around 1870, Ching forgot about Okinawa and did not mind the desolate and unmanned Senakaku Islands situated between Okinawa and mainland China. The Ching Court in Beijing seems to have had an only vague idea that the Senkaku Islands were rather between Taiwan and Okinawa, so that Ching was all the more not interested in the Senkaku Islands. Ching's occupation of Taiwan was also not complete. There were many Taiwanese natives independently living, which was not a concern for the Emperor of Ching, either. From the beginning, Ching invaded Taiwan because of existence of insurgents there, not from a territorial ambition.


The Japanese Constitution forbids the Japanese Government to make war (especially in mainland China).

The Chinese Constitution requests the Chinese Government to make war, expanding its influence on the world.

But, if Japanese Self-Defence Forces are to exchange fires with invading Chinese forces within the territory of Japan, the Japanese Constitution, amended or not, would admire their courage protecting lives and assets of the Japanese people.

The Japanese Constitution implicitly requests the Chinese Government to renounce war.

Still the world looks like the same as in 1930's with the U.S., France, Germany, the U.K., and Japan contributing to development of the world, since Russia and China have been under bad influences of communism.

Truly, compared with China and Russia (and South Korea), how civilized the U.S., France, Germany, and the U.K. look, since they do not illegally occupy Japanese peripheral islands!

In addition, in 2010, 6.3 million students graduated from universities and colleges in China. The Chinese Gvernment should take care of them in finding jobs, if not trying to help the poor overseas.

"the shepherd of the sheep"

No One Was Born with Words Preset
(Au début, pas un jour de naissance, mais les mots de Dieu)

Jesus Christ never celebrated his birthday on December 25.

But, China is celebrating its foundation for a week from October 1.

Logically, China is a little anti-Christ, isn't it, Sir, Christ Jesus?

Anyway, you cannot meet the very day when you were born again till after your death.

SECTION I: Language War?

Check and think about the following figures and data.

1) English and Chinese are the two exceptional languages in terms of the number of users.

2) However, English is more universal, but Chinese localized if so vast in an area of use.

3) English is used all over the world; Chinese mainly in China and the Chinese culture regions.

4) Japanese is mainly used among the Japanese people living in the Japanese Islands. However, today, many native Japanese live in foreign countries. Yet, Japanese is only spoken in Japan as a major and prevailing language. The above table is wrong in this context.

So, below is more authentic data about estimation of the number of people speaking a language :

(Click to enlarge.)

Yet, grading of a language can be different from ranking in terms of its users. So, there is an example of evaluation of importance of a language.

(Click to enlarge.)
The formula used to calculate the importance of each language
1. Number of primary speakers: max. 4 points
2. Number of secondary speakers: max. 6 points
5. Economic power of countries using the language: max. 8 points
4. Number of major areas of human activity in which the language is important: max. 8 points
3. Number and population of countries using the language: max. 7 points
6. Socio-literary prestige of the language: max. 4 points (plus an additional point for being an official UN language.

Twenty major languages were then assigned a number of points in each field and the points added together and the top ten were ranked accordingly.

Fig. 6.Secondary speakers are people who speak one or more languages in addition to their first (home, mother or primary) language. The more secondary speakers a language has, the wider its influence in the world tends to be.

(Click to enlarge.)
It is no coincidence that of the world's top ten languages only two do not function as lingua francas (a lingua franca is a language used as a means of communication between people otherwise speaking different languages). The two exceptions are Chinese and Japanese; their difficult and custom-tailored systems of writing and the fact that both are used by essentially monoglot societies in sharply limited if large geographical areas has prevented them from becoming the common language of a wider area.

So, an enigma remains. Why is French so widely studied by non-natives of France?

SECTION II: Mysterious Major Language - Japanese

Some Japanese are interested in the origin of the Japanese language. But, it is impossible to say that Japanese is a relative to Chinese, though Japan officially imported Kanji characters from China 1500 years ago or before. From a view point of the grammar, the Japanese language seems to have nothing to do with languages used in the south of the Okinawa Islands, though a Japanese dialect has been spoken in Okinawa for thousands of years.

An Overview of the History of the Japanese Language
Draft 4.0
Daniel J. Vogler
20 March 1998

"Only one [predominant] language of one major nation remains today without clarification of its origins — Japanese" (Miller 1980, 26).


As linguistic research progresses throughout the continuum of the world’s languages, perhaps a definitive ancestor of Japanese will be pinpointed, and the people of Japan will rest from their identity crisis. But more likely, researchers will continue to refine the current theories to make the relationships between Altaic, Korean, and Japanese more clear and precise. Who knows — maybe the future could bring another discovery as revolutionary as the 8-vowel system of ancient Japanese texts. At any rate, I am content with Japanese as an independent language, an integral part of a beautiful culture, and a self-sufficient creature with its own personality.

Some Japanese words have similarity with those of languages spoken around the South Pacific Ocean. But, the grammatical structure of Japanese is akin to Korean and other north Asian language, though Korean people seldom used Kanji characters nowadays.

Historical Linguists do not all agree about the origin of the Japanese language. Though the Japanese language is of uncertain origin, there are many theories:

- Japanese is a relative of the Ural-Altaic language family. Other languages in this group include Korean, Mongolian, and more distantly, Hungarian, Turkish, Estonian and Finnish. Evidence for this theory lies in the fact that like Finnish, Estonian, Turkish, and Korean, Japanese is an agglutinative language, with two (phonologically distinctive) tones, similar to Serbian/Croatian and Swedish. This tonal system is often referred to as a pitch accent in linguistics.

- Japanese is a relative of other Asian languages. This theory maintains that Japanese split from - or had large influences from - other East Asian languages such as Korean (but not Chinese). Phonological and lexical similarities to Malayo-Polynesian languages have been noted.

- Japanese is related to southern Asian languages. Recent phonological research suggests a possible relationship between Japanese and Tamil, a member of the Dravidian language family spoken in southern India.

- Japanese is a language isolate, unrelated to any other known language.

This enigma is also related to another, that is, where ancestors of the Japanese people came from.

The Japanese people inherently consist of two ethnic groups: the Japanese ethnic group and the Ainu ethnic group who have lived mainly in northern regions of the Japanese Islands.

The Ainu language is not a relative to the Japanese language. Ainu is rather close to languages spoken by Eskimos and Native Americans.

So, Japan is the southernmost region of the origin in Asia for Native Americans, the eastern most region of the origin for people living north of China and Tibet, and the northernmost region of the origin for people living around the West South Pacific Ocean. Accordingly, a unique language system was created there upon layers of various types of ancient languages. In this context, it is an independent language at an upper level than that of Korean and Chinese and other languages in the world.

My hypothesis is as follows:

"spread abroad his fame in all that country"

Bay of Tokyo!
Bay of Tokyo!!
Not the Uo-tsuri (angling)-jima Island of the Senkaku Islands!

Jokes Save the World?
(Blagues sauver le monde?)

"Take care of you business everyday!" Do you know this phrase?

Business is indeed a less sinful act of mankind than politics.

The point at issue is a talent of business.

Like in any field of trade, there is someone that is not fit for business. But, to such a man, business can be a way to conquer himself and meet the God. Yet, to those fit for business, business cannot be a stage where they can conquer themselves and meet the God.

So, you have to say that you are in the world of business not for money.

In this way, I once worked in some companies though I have never been suspected of spying, since I really worked very hard at the same level of colleagues.

Now, China must free the last one among the four innocent Japanese corporate workers having been arrested for spying or in retaliation.

SECTION I: Zhou Enlai (Chou En-lai) in 1972

In 1972 in the wake of President Richard Nixon's visit to Beijing, Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka wanted to restore relations with China. And, fortunately, Chinese Premier Chou En-lai invited Yoshikatsu Takeiri, the leader of the opposition Komeito party, to visit Beijing immediately after Kakuei Tanaka assumed the office of Japan's prime minister in July 1972, as Takeiri had already visited Beijing a year before, namely in June/July 1971.

On July 28, 1972, Japanese lawmaker Y. Takeiri met with Chinese No.2 leader Chou En-lai in Beijing. Their conversations were (officially) recorded and can be checked on the Internet by courtesy of the University of Tokyo.

In Japanese:
In Chinese (not honestly and fully written down):

(Click to check.)
( )

As President Richard Nixon surprisingly visited Beijing in February 1972, the Tanaka Cabinet of Japan was compelled to do something to cope with the change of the international trend. Nixon's visit was intended to put an end to the Vietnam War the U.S. was losing, since China, with the Soviet Union, provided huge aid to North Vietnam.

So, P.M. Kakuei Tanaka met with Komeito leader Tekeiri who just returned from Beijing to Tokyo. Takeiri assured P.M. Kakuei Tanaka that Zhou Enlai would never fail Tanaka if he should visit Beijing. P.M. Tanaka trusted Takeiri, so that he flew to Beijing in September 1972 with Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ohira, though the U.S. was yet to conclude a diplomatic tie with China.

P.M. Kakuei Tanaka's visit resulted in normalization of the relationship between Japan and China as the two leaders signed the Japan-China joint communique during Tanaka's visit. However, without Takeiri's reporting to Tanaka two months before, this historical event was impossible, since the great strategist Zhou Enlai could freely handle Chinese foreign affairs only around 1972; nobody except Zhou could carry out this adventurous negotiations with Japan in early 1970's.


In the meeting with Yoshikatsu Takeiri On July 28, 1972, Chou En-lai said:

"Indeed, you do not have to raise the issue of the Senkaku Islands. You must not have been much interested in this issue, Mr. Takeiri? Neither was I. But, historians have raised this issue due to a matter of crude oil. In Japan, Mr. Kiyoshi Inoue has been exhaustively studying this issue. But, you do not have to take this issue seriously. It cannot compare with the relationship between China and Japan to be restored based on the Five Principles for Peace. If newspapers should mention this issue, they would actually put their oar unnecessarily in our diplomatic efforts. Now, issues related to Taiwan were finished. Let's discuss the Japan-U.S. relationships. As America is yet to have a diplomatic tie with China, they must hope that Japan will wait for America to get prepared for establishing a diplomatic tie with China."

If Chou En-lai had had compelling evidence on China's right on the Senkaku Islands any Japanese would admit, he should have been able to simply show it to Japanese politicians, including Kakuei Tanaka and Yoshikatsu Takeiri, even if on a private basis.

But, Chou En-lai's claim or belief on the Senkaku Island as a Chinese territory seems to be, however, mostly based on study by Japanese scholar Kiyoshi Inoue, which also means that the most notable Chinese premier in history had no compelling evidence, on his side, any Japanese would admit.

Note also that Chou En-lai included the Senkaku Islands issue in the Taiwanese matter. It means that Chou En-lai might have believed that the Islands belonged to Taiwan rather than mainland China.

SECTION II: Kakuei Tanaka and Chou En-lai in 1972

On September 27, 1972, Prime Minister of Japan Kakuei Tanaka talked with Chinese Premier Chou En-lai in Beijing. Tanaka raised the issue of the Senkaku Islands, but Chou did not follow it:

Tanaka: What do you think about the Senkaku Islands? Some people came to me for this issue, with various opinions.

Chou: I do not want to discuss the Senkaku Islands issue on this occasion. It is not good to talk about the the Senkaku Islands. As crude oil was discovered around the Islands, this issue has surfaced. Without crude oil there, anybody, including Taiwan and America, would take no notice of the Senkaku Islands. How many months will it take to appoint and send ambassadors to each other?

Ohira: We will take necessary measures as soon as possible, but it is impossible to specify in the joint communique the number of months within which we are to send ambassadors to each other...

( )

Again, if Chou En-lai had had compelling evidence on China's right on the Senkaku Islands any Japanese would admit, he should have been able to simply show it to Japanese politicians, including Japan's P.M. Kakuei Tanaka and F.M. Masayoshi Ohira, even if on a private basis.

As knowledgeable Chou En-lai was the second-ranking leader of China next to Mao Tse-tung in the period, it shows the best the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist Party knew about the Senkaku Islands. They did not know anything that could easily demolish Japan's claim on the Islands as its own territory since the era before the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), even if China governed by Mao, Chou, and other Communist leaders was a legitimate successor of the Ching Dynasty.

In conclusion, Chinese citizens should be allowed to access these documents freely, so that they will know that like the Ming Dynasty and the Ching Dynasty the Chinese Communist Party had only a vague idea on the Senkaku Islands, since they were not interested in remote islands traditionally. Neither of them declared that the Senkaku Islands belonged to China (through a due process) while the Empire of Japan did in 1895 before the end of the Sino-Japanese War and transfer of Taiwan to the Empire.

(The Ching Dynasty had a chance to officially make an objection against occupation of the Senkaku Islands by the Empire of Japan before/during the Sino-Japanese War or separately transfer the Islands to the Empire of Japan after the Sino-Japanese War, but they did not.)

SECTION III: Chinese Americans, Still Chinese?

Some Japanese do not like Chinese simply because their manners are so bad, in comparison with Japanese.

Fifty ways to know if you are Chinese

3. You have more than one college degrees, especially more than one Master's.
8. You beat eggs with chopsticks.
20. You make sounds when you have a bowl of soup.
21. You don't dry-clean clothes, even if they need to be dry-cleaned.
35. You spit bones and other food scraps on the table.
44. You drive a Japanese car.

If you earn a higher education and drive a Japanese car, you cannot be always respected.

But, more stupid might be some Japanese politicians:

Chief Cabinet Secretary Mr. Sengoku said:

a) If the respectable 14 crews would rather kindly return to China, I thought we could have entered a new phase
(though the skipper of the illegal Chinese fishing boat was still put in custody)...

b) I thought the Chinese judicial system has been modernized and changed so much, but they, respectable, would rather not kindly change the system in this regard (as they still keep four innocent Japanese in custody)...

c) I understand respectable Chinese marine research vessels would still rather kindly navigate around (Japan's Senkaku Islands)...

Accordingly, a reporter of a certain Japanese newspaper has written down State Minister Mr. Sengoku as being in a strange mental state, since he used respect language so much even to Chinese ships.


So I recommended Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan to replace Chief Cabinet Secretary Mr. Sengoku after the 11-07-2010 Upper House election.

Somebody might call me Al the Japanese.

"but by prayer and fasting"

Do you remember when...
you were a horse or a dog...
on the shore in a TV show?(Nobody falls in love with a wave...)

The Sea of Fraternity: the East China Sea
(La mer de la fraternité: la mer de Chine orientale)

It was the day before yesterday.

A sort of old woman running a tobacco shop was shouting in front of her humble shop,"Tobacco, Tobacco! You can buy many now!"

Not many people walking on the street responded to her snappy voice, though, under a cloudy sky.

Though she was riding on this chance of a 30% tobacco price rise in Japan to make some money for her daughter and grand-daughter who visited the place sometimes, I felt she was pitiful.

So, I stopped at her shop today to buy one pack, though, under the fair sky somewhat.

Indeed, nowadays I only smoke in my room, since it is not so easy to finish a day's posting to my blog.

SECTION I: The 2000 Japan-China Fisheries Agreement

On June 1, 2000, Japan and China signed officially the Fisheries Agreement.

Yet, the sea areas between Japan and China, Korea, and Russia are a little complicated in terms of allocation of various grades of fishing rights in divided zones to each country.

But, the basic scheme for Japan was as follows before the 2000 Japan-China Fisheries Agreement.

And then, new division was officially introduced in 2000.日中漁業関係

For the zone colored yellow, China has issued 18,000 licences to Chinese fishing boats. In this zone, usually only a score or so Japanese round haul netters operate.


The mutually recognized fishery zone around the Senkaku Islands is subject to the flag state doctrine. But, Chinese fishing boats are of course not allowed to operate in the Japanese territorial sea surrounding the Senkaku Islands.

The issue at point is that this was officially agreed on 10 years ago. But now China has failed in preventing Chinese fishing boats from entering the the Japanese territorial sea surrounding the Senkaku Islands. Though China claims the Islands as their own, the Fisheries Treaty was concluded without admitting the Chinese claim on the Senkaku Islands.

So, the world must first know that Japan set and observed a strict and detailed legal framework for fishing operation around the Japanese territory. China also jointly concluded an effective fisheries agreement with Japan. But, China has not honestly observed it by bringing up its territorial claim again and allowing its fishing boats to violate the Agreement.

Like the recent case of a ban on export of rare earths to Japan, China has no true respect for international agreements and treaties.

This is the state of Japan and China concerning the mutually recognized fishery zone and the Japanese territorial sea around the Senkaku Islands, which journalists in the world must be fully aware of before mentioning Japan and China.

Otherwise, like The Economists that was stupidly amazed at China's claim of becoming the world No.2 economy with more GDP than Japan's, journalists would be simply fooled by wily Chinese communists.

SECTION II: JAPAN, South Korea, and N. Korea

Germany Population: 81.93 million
(Click to enlarge.)

Japanese Population: 127.47 million
(Click to enlarge.)

South Korean Population: 48.91 million(Click to enlarge.)

N. Korean Population: 23.73 million (23,727,676)(Click to enlarge.)

Growth rates of export between 1992 and 2008:

Germany: 200%

JAPAN: 100%

South Korea: 450%

N. Korea: 0%

But, a secret is always in Japan's investment:


Japan's direct investment into South Kore increased by 600% from 1995 to 2008 (from $347 million to $2.369 billion).

(Between 1962 to 2009 Q1, the largest accumulated investments into South Korea were made by the U.S. with $40.7 billion and the second largest were by Japan with $22.6 billion.)

North Korea has no other way but ask direct investment from the U.S., Japan, or South Korea to survive and get free from China.

*** *** *** ***

It is remarkable that everybody was spurred by the launching of the Iraq War in March 2003.

Even export from Japan started to sharply grow again. North Korea, one of the remotest countries from Iraq, also hit the bottom to recover a loss it had suffered in the preceding decade.

There are still arguments about true causes for the Iraq War Former President George W. Bush never confessed. But, the answer can be easily seen in Iraq without Saddam Hussein and Dubai with the tower taller than the extinct WTC in New York.

So, it is no wonder that your life was also spurred around March 2003, though some others might have needed graver incidents around 2005.


Emperor Showa was called His Majesty Generalissimo during and before WWII.

The deceased father of N. Korean Military Committee Chairman and Marshal Mr. Kim Jong-Il is still called Generalissimo.

In Japanese, a generalissimo is called "Dai-Gensui"; Marshal "Gensui." Of course, there are no marshals and generalissimos in the Self-Defence Forces of Japan, today.

Anyway, nobody can become an emperor nowadays in China and Korea, since this tradition of the old Chinese Civilization is preserved only in Japan.)

Mar 9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

Mar 9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

Mar 9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

Mar 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

"Now we know that God heareth not sinners"

Journalists Blind to Cruelty of Foreign (Chinese) Troops
(Les pacifistes de la personnalité tordue)

Japan's Lower-House member Ms. Yuriko Koike, a former Defence Minister and opposition LDP member, has criticized Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan as a traitor, since the Kan Cabinet authorized the surprisingly early release of the Chinese skipper under arrest for his illegal and violent action around the Senkaku Islands which undoubtedly belong to Japan.

If you have suspicion on this territorial claim by Japan, please refer to recent postings to this EEE-Reporter blong.

What I want to stress is that the fact that the Imperial Army once fought against Chinese troops in mainland China in and before WWII cannot lead to an assumption that China might be always right and Japan is wrong after WWII.

The Chinese Communist Party reportedly killed one million Tibetans and 70 million Chinese citizens in these decades, in addition to being engaged in battles with Taiwan, the violent invasion of Tibet, the Korean War, armed conflicts with the Soviet Union, support for the Pol Pot faction in Cambodia, the war with Vietnam, support for the junta in Myanmar, and violent suppression of Muslims in Uighur.

So, the fact that the Imperial Army once fought against Chinese troops in mainland China in and before WWII cannot lead to an assumption that China might be always right and Japan is wrong after WWII.

But, if Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan unbelievably thinks inwardly that as Japan invaded China in WWII, the Senkaku Islands might belong to China without checking history like some staff of The New York Times, Japanese nationalists would surely call him a traitor.

SECTION I: Chinese Classic Teaching - The Book of Han

Chinese classic literature has been extensively studied and widely prevailed in Japan in these 2000 years. Even it was partially taught in a humble primary school of any village or town during the samurai period before the modernization of Japan that started in 1868.

(It is doubtful that the Chinese people today are properly educated with Chinese classic literature by the Chinese Communist Party who once destroyed many of old Chinese cultural assets under the leadership of Mao Tse-Tung.)

Among many works of Chinese classic literature, the Book of Han ("Kan-Jyo" in Japanese) is especially important.

The History of the Former Han Dynasty (*** Han Shu) is a classical Chinese history finished in 111 AD, covering the history of China under the Western Han from 206 BC to 25 AD. It is also sometimes called the Book of Former Han.

The Book of Han discussed the nature of the military. It grouped military movements into five categories:

1) Righteous Military Operations ("Gi-Hei" in Japanese)

2) Responsive Military Operations ("Ou-Hei" in Japanese)

3) Raging Military Operations ("Hun-Hei" in Japanese)

4) Robbing Military Operations ("Tan-Pei" in Japanese)

5) Raider Military Operations ("Kyou-Hei" in Japanese)

"Gi-Hei" means the military operations that are exercised by a king to establish order and remove subversive elements and thus have peace and justice prevail. This is a supreme and unbeatable act of a king.

"Ou-Hei" means the military operations that are exercised as the last resort to address a grave challenge posed by other country, an enemy, or evil forces. This leads to victory invariably.

"Hun-Hei" means the military operations that are exercised in anger or as revenge to handle minor skirmishes with other country. This leads to defeat of itself eventually.

"Tan-Pei" means the military operations that are exercised in order to rob other country, an enemy, or people of money, lands, and other assets. This leads to destruction of itself finally.

"Kyo-Hei" means the military operations that are exercised to arrogantly display strength of army and the size of large population and a vast territory, trying to suppress other nation. This leads to fall of, say, even an empire.


Apparently, the Chinese Communist Government is now doing what is close to "Hun-Hei," "Tan-Pei," and "Kyo-Hei."

(The Empire of Japan started with "Ou-Hei" in its building the mighty Imperial Army and Navy to protect the nation from the Russian Empire and Western Powers in the late 19th century. The Empire continued "Ou-Hei" to address conflicts with the Ching Dynasty and its Chinese successors with any authority into the 20th century. However, its "Ou-Hei" operations around Shanghai in 1930's resulted in the Pearl Harbor attacks in 1941 which are hard to be recognized fully as "Gi-Hei.")

SECTION II: Rare Earths

The Chinese Communist Government now actually bands export of rare earths to Japan, which is a violation of a WTO agreement.

The Chinese Communist Government still holds four Japanese corporate workers in detention on alleged suspicion of spying Chinese inland military installations which nobody in Japan believes but has a possibility of death penalty to be applied.

While the Japanese Government promptly allowed Chinese staff in the Chinese embassy in Tokyo to meet the arrested Chinese skipper who damaged a Japan Coast Guard ship, the Beijing Government has been very reluctant to allow Japanese embassy members to meet the four ordinary Japanese who are believed to be innocent but victimized through the Senkaku Islands issue.

So, China has virtually violated a WTO agreement and arrested four (innocent) Japanese citizens in retaliation for the arreset of the Chinese skipper whose illegal maneuvering of his fishing boat was taken by a video camera but was already released while his criminal case is still pending at a Japanese district prosecutor office.

But, using rare earths as a means to intimidate Japan will soon loose its early impact.

Ratios of rare earth reserves by country:

Ratios of rare earth production by country:


Ratios of rare earth exporting to Japan by country:



China has never behaved like a responsible quasi-world No.2 economic power.

It is time to help CIS, Australia, and India develop their economy, since they have rare earths in a large quantity.

Japan has no ground border into China like the U.S.

If over a border line Chinese missiles, jet fighters, tanks, and soldiers being augmented every year can be easily seen, journalists in Japan and the U.S. will change their view on China.

So, journalists in Russia, the central Asia, Tibet, India, and Vietnam have a more acute view on China.

Japanese and American journalists who hate the past militarism of the Empire of Japan, though based on samurai ethics, have ten-times more reasons to hate the Chinese Communist militarism.

And, the opposition to militarism must be pursued for universal justice and value. Then, those who hate the past temporary Japanese militarism must hate more the present Chinese military forces.

The duty for Japanese and American journalists is to protect Japanese and Americans from the Chinese Communist militarism.

"shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation"

Where do you think it is?

Japan's Long March Has Begun!!
(Tant que les peuples sont harcelés par Pékin...)

If the Japanese Government is weaker than Beijing, how Japanese businesses can operate with advantage over China?

The chairman of the Federation of Economic Organizations of Japan must trust his Government. If he has true friends in China, he has to let them help him. If he has no true friends in China, he had better forget about China. The global market is larger than the Chinese market.

And, it will need a very long march to achieve revolutionary performance in China.

SECTION I: The Administrative Detention System in China

According to the September 24, 2010's issue of The Asahi Shimbun newspaper, there are 350 detention centers in China where 160,000 citizens (according the Chinese Government) are imprisoned for forced labor and punishment.

Those citizens were arrested for disturbing order of the society but not admitted a right of access to courts. They were simply pulled into detention facilities by the police so as to spend time there for up to four years. Therefore, anybody can be thrown into a kind of jail without any evidence of violation of laws and regulation.

Offences punishable by the system include unlawful advertising, unlicensed taxis, unlicensed businesses, vagrancy and begging. Authorities can also punish peaceful protest or dissent.

Hundreds of thousands are believed to be held in Re-education Through Labour facilities across China. All are at high risk of torture or ill-treatment.

China’s use of administrative detention is incompatible with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It falls short on the rights of detainees to be brought promptly before a judge; the right to a fair trial; and the prohibition of forced or compulsory labour.

Amnesty International has called on China to abolish Re-education Through Labour and other forms of punitive administrative detention. Pending their abolition, the authorities should ensure that the Beijing police do not use detention without trial to clean up the city.

This is the state of law and order in China Wall Street guys and Western economists have praised so much as a kind of the world No.2 economy.

SECTION II: Chinese GDP - Smaller or Larger

If the Japanese Government can control the society and the market in the same manner as China does, it could easily double GDP.

Anyway, data on 1.3 billion people cannot be correctly collected, counted, and sorted by this kind of the despotic government whose bureaucrats would simply pad reports and records to satisfy their bosses and evade demotion.

If GDP calculation was padded for a 10% mandatory increase every year for five years, it would result in:

1.0 x 1.1 x 1.1 x 1.1 x 1.1 x 1.1 = 1.6

The Chinese GDP can easily achieve 60% growth without any true growth.

So, it is no wonder that China claims that its GDP has doubled in five years.

1.0 x 1.15 x 1.15 x 1.15 x 1.15 x 1.15 = 2.0

Probably, truth is:

1.0 x 1.05 x 1.05 x 1.05 x 1.05 x 1.05 = 1.28

So, true GDP of China can be 38% lower than the presently announced value.

But, the total of local GDP reports from Chinese provinces is bigger than the national GDP.

"It's very common that the regional GDP growth is higher than that of the nation today," Zhou said. "It reflects that the statistical system hasn't been improved yet, and the problem of false data has to be solved."

Even, there is a theory that the true GDP of China is larger than the officially reported GDP, taking into the scale of underground economy and hidden income of citizens.

In either way, the GDP of a nation with 1.3 billion population can be something different from that of the 0.3 billion-population U.S. and 0.13 billion-population Japan.

SECTION III: Chinese GDP - Out of Question

There is a cooler view on GDP itself and the Chinese GDP. Due to the folloiwng factors, the figure so far presented as the Chinese GDP cannot be trusted.

What I'm more concerned about — particularly in regards to China — is something Stiglitz mentions only in passing, the fact that GDP may overstate the real benefit of government spending or policies designed to artificially stimulate economic growth.

The "resilience" of the Chinese economy right now is based, at least in part, on several factors that I find cause for concern:

- acceleration of a 20-year pipeline of infrastructure projects into a 5-year time horizon, including many seemingly redundant projects or vanity projects, or ones where the returns are far from clear (such as the construction of entirely new cities to replace perfectly good old ones);

- reconstruction in the aftermath of the Sichuan earthquake (which needs to be done, but is actually the replacement of destroyed value, not — as growth figures imply — a form of genuine economic expansion; otherwise you could tear down the whole country just to rebuilt it and call it "growth");

- construction of large-scale luxury condo developments that go entirely unoccupied and serve merely as investment vehicles, on the expectation of future appreciation;

- easy state-provided credit that has kept businesses — many of them poorly run and financed — from exiting sectors (such as steel) that have chronic excess capacity;

- a massive shift in resources towards the State Owned sector and away from private enterprise (including the acquisition by the State of controlling stakes in successful private companies);

- misdirection of business loans into stock market and real estate speculation, fueling bubbles in both markets;

- direct investment by government ministries in order to speculate in — and thereby prop up – the real estate market, on the misconception that a rising real estate market is a "driver" of growth (rather than a result of real demand for more and better usable space driven by business expansion and rising living standards);

- the possibility of "channel stuffing," where wholesalers and retailers are forced to build up unsold inventories to keep factories (particularly state-owned factories) running. Ironically, this shows up in China’s official statistics as “retail sales” because in China, retail sales are counted when the manufacturer ships, not when the products is sold to a consumer.

I'm not saying everything about the Chinese economy is bad, although it might sound like that. There’s actually plenty that's good. My main concern is that by pretending everything is wonderful, and brushing the real problems under the rug, China is missing a critical opportunity. Unlike India, which is struggling to revitalize its infrastructure, China already has the whole “building for the future” thing down pat. Bigger airports, taller skyscrapers, and more highways might be good, but they’re not the challenge China faces. Developing a vibrant service sector, improving quality and safety in manufacturing, building recognized and well-respected brands, developing more efficient and transparent capital markets, providing a social safety net that lubricates labor markets and liberates savings, moving towards full convertibility of the Renminbi, learning how to manage and grow businesses in political and social environments beyond China’s borders — these are the challenges China must master to take its economy to the next level. But I don’t see anything in the “8% growth” story that is moving China in that direction. It’s more (a lot more) of the same, and more of the same just won’t do. Count me as someone who still needs to be convinced on the “quality” of China’s current GDP figures.

Finally, my suggestion is that we do not apply the concept of GDP to China in a conventional manner.

There are two types of GDPs in the world: the Non-Chinese GDPs and the Chinese GDP

Once again, as for the Senkaku Islands, when people in the world see the map, they find the Chinese continent so close to the Senkaku Islands and the Okinawa Islands. They will think that China must have occupied them even from days of 1,000 years ago.

But, the fact is that the coastal areas were simply remote regions without value from capitals of the past Chinese dynasties. Chinese empires deeply rooted in inland areas, especially at the so called "Central Plain" along the midstream of the Yellow River. Chinese emperors in the past never got interested in coastal areas and islands, except Taiwan which was however incompletely occupied by the Ching Dynasty since 1683.

For the 2500-year history of China before modernization in the 20th century, only once a Chinese empire tried to invade the Japanese Islands to fail so critically as kamikaze typhoons blew to destroy hundreds and more Chinese ships. It was in the late 13th century.

Before 1868 when the last samurai regime fell and the modern Meiji Government was established in Japan, there was no agreement on, and recognition of, borders between Ching and the Okinawa kingdom which was subject to a local samurai lord under the samurai central government in Edo (Tokyo). The only modern diplomatic handling of this border was conducted by the modern Meiji Government of the Empire of Japan alone in 1895 so as to declare recognition of the Senkaku Islands as a Japan's territory. It took 10 years for the Tokyo government to accomplish this work that was started in response to a request from the Okinawa governor.

So, tonight, a newscaster of Japan's NHK explained that since the declaration of official occupation of the Senkaku Islands by the Japanese government in 1895, no one, including the Ching Dynasty and any successive Chinese authorities, raised objections to this issue till around 1970 when the Chinese Communist government suddenly started to claim the Islands as their own.

Even, a Sunday night semi-entertainment TV program of a private TV station in Tokyo explained the same thing last night. Isn't it enough?

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Some English learning site for Japanese introduces the following jokes:

1. I read so much about the bad effects of smoking, so I decided to quit reading.

[...though I started to read those brochures to just see how useless reading them was.]

2. I quit smoking. I feel better, I smell better, and it's safer to drink from old beer cans around the kitchen.

[...though I have decided to buy an ash tray in case.]


Prices of cigarettes are to be raised in Japan from October 1, soon. An ordinary pack sold at 300 yen ($3.5) will be priced at 440 yen ($5.2). Accordingly, probably millions of people are now stocking up with packs or cartons of tobaccos.

I have never hoarded cigarettes on any such occasions in the past. It might be based on a very strong motivation deep inside my mind. But, "tobaccos" and "money saving" are a very sinful combination. "Tobaccos" and "money losing" can be a less sinful combination.

Everything achieved by chance is sometimes very powerful in terms of commercial or practical value.

As I mentioned, the most primitive and largest miracle for mankind is:

The sun and the moon look like having the same size from the earth while some members of Primates are evolving into mankind.

Effects this situation has had on the evolution of mankind are beyond description in my feeling.

Anyway, funny, stupid, satisfied, and awful can be adjectives for feelings in a day of a humble man to disappear before the sun and the moon, if not before his wife smoking so much even while brushing her teeth.

Japanese Despise China like in 1930's

1. Chinese Criminals in Japan

Every day in Japan several Chinese criminals are arrested for criminal trial.

The Chinese Government should stop them from visiting Japan. Otherwise, the Chinese Government should pay damages to Japanese victims. the Chinese Government should officially apologize to Japan, since they have educated those Chinese people to become criminals.

2. Chinese Gangsters in USA and Canada

Global Crime Syndicates Target U.S. From Canada - Chinese Gangs Brief Article - Statistical Data Included

"The international criminal threat posed by ethnic Chinese criminal networks has become more complex as crime groups originating in mainland China have joined the traditional triad societies of Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan" in expanding beyond China's borders, the report states. Such secret triads, which date from the 17th century, have established relationships throughout the Pacific Rim and the Western Hemisphere and are adept at using what the report calls "traditional Chinese practices of networking" to facilitate criminal activity.

Intelligence estimates put total membership in the triads at more than 100,000, a figure that includes "quasi-legitimate businessmen involved in an array of criminal enterprises." Hong Kong has produced two of the most powerful triads: One is called 14K; the other is the Sun Yee On triad. Both have branches in Canada. The 14K is based in Toronto, maintains a chapter in New York and operates in other U.S. cities. Sun Yee On members have settled in Toronto, as well as Edmonton, Alberta, and Vancouver, British Columbia, and operate in the United States.

But China's biggest, most expansive and successful triad is the Big Circle Gang, which has cells around the world, including Canada. Since first appearing in the United States in the early 1990s, it has set up cells in New York, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. "The Big Circle Gang is responsible for importing much of the Southeast Asian heroin entering Canada -- much of which is then smuggled into the United States -- and is the source for many of the counterfeit credit cards used in North America" the report states.

3. Crimes in China

Rising Chinese businessman killed on party official's orders

XIANYANG, China — Zhu Baoqi should have been a shining example of China's economic miracle in the heartland of the ruling Communist Party. As government funds flooded into industry and construction across his home province of Shaanxi, Zhu became a rich man...

At the end, though, Zhu's ambitions couldn't keep up with the frenzy, and he ran afoul of party officials feeding at the trough of local projects. A local potentate who'd wanted to invest in Zhu's coal mine sent two men to his home just past midnight on June 15, 2008. One of them pulled out a blade and stabbed the 62-year-old Zhu repeatedly, leaving him for dead...

Zhu was trapped. He began paying the millions of dollars to Guo, but it didn't matter. Guo was out for blood, thinking that if Zhu were gone completely, he could take the mine with even less trouble, according to court testimony reported by state media...

"Crimes like murder and robbing and stealing are quite common these days in China. People usually don't pay attention," Li Tiesuo said. "If Zhu wasn't a billionaire, it wouldn't have created this big stir."



- Protest and riots are called "mass incidents." Once regarded as taboo and still illegal, they occur surpsingly often. In 2005, there were 84,000 recorded mass incidents, more than 200 a day, involving over four million Chinese. They included protests over unpaid wages, taxes, lay offs, land seizures, factory closings, poor working conditions, environmental damages, corruption, misuse of funds, ethnic tensions, use of natural resources, forced immigration and police abuse. Some of them have been quite large and violent.

- The number of mass incidents rose from 10,000 with 730,000 participantsin 1994 to 74,000 with 3.8 million participantsin 2004. In 2000, there were about 40,000 protests, including 230 incidents of mobs laying siege to Communist Party offices in 82 cities, resulting in 5,500 casualties. In 2003 the government admitted to 58,000 incidents. The number of "incidents" was around 23,000 in 2006.

- Once the text message campaign gained momentum it took on a life of its own. In early June 2007, demonstrations with 10,000 participants were held and Xiamen began getting nationwide coverage. Everyone was caught by surprise when the city announced construction of the chemical factory would be stopped. Many felt that was perhaps most significant about the protest was that people were not afraid to speak out even though they knew their messages could tracked.

- In August 2009, an executive was beaten to death and over a 100 hundred people were injured at a protest by 30,000 steel workers outside the Tonghua Iron and Steel plant over a planned merger deal that would leave many workers without jobs. The executive a killed by workers over resentment that he earned $440,000 a year while some workers earned as little $35 a month. Protesters prevented an ambulance from entering the plant to help the executive.
