A War Lost

Chinese on both sides of the Taiwan Straits lost in battles against Japanese's aggression.

Taiwan canceled a planned protesting trip of its navy fleet in the disputed Diaoyutai area. Both Beijing and Taipei recognize Taipei is directly in charge of the islands. The president Ma Ying-Jeou explained that what he meant the other day that he would launch a war against Japan's aggressions was a war in the international court, rather than on the open sea.

Beijing signed a treaty with Japan, and basically agreed with all Japanese claims on Chinese territory. Any opposing opinions were prohibited from appearing on any media or the Internet. There's no apparent reason to explain why did the communism government made the deal, other than to make Japanese leaders a happy guest in the summer Olympic to be held in a couple of months in Beijing.

That Dame Olympic Game!
