    China vs Japan on islands now

    BBC News - Japan activists land on disputed islands amid China row

    How come it is wrong for the Japanese to take such action but not the Chinese?

    And how did you reach that uninformed decision? And no, a lost fisherman who once stumbled on the island is no reason to claim sovereignity. By that logic Taiwan would belong to the Phillipines for example.

    It is the copyright on historical fact that I find amusing, especially from a Japanese society.
