Video: violent anti-Japanese protests across China

a couple more


“Defend the Diaoyu Islands to the death,” one banner said. Another said, “Even if China is covered with graves, we must kill all Japanese.”

Another photograph showed a handwritten sign taped to the entrance of Suning, a popular electronics store, telling customers it was no longer selling Japanese products.

Some protests appear to have turned violent. According to several postings, demonstrators on Sunday attacked sushi restaurants or other businesses perceived to have a Japanese connection. Several photographs said to be from Shenzhen, across the border from Hong Kong, showed what appeared to be damaged or overturned cars — most of them Japanese models — as well as several police vehicles.

The demonstrations appeared to be sanctioned and chaperoned by the police, who generally prohibit public protests unless they suit the needs of the Communist Party.

I think this is completely orchestrated by the government of the PRC. What do regular people care about those islands? Surely not enough to go rioting in several cities! If the riots weren't what the government wants--say riots to free Tibet or end the practice of jailing dissidents--you can bet they'd have been squashed in record time.

I feel like it is. They're NOT stopping the protest even though it is getting out of hand, blocking the roads, etc. They KNOW that if they were to make an attack on the islands, the United States would use military power on them. Since the U.S. made an agreement with Japan about it. With the U.S. being the strongest member of the NATO, China definitely doesn't want to mess with that. They're using this hate warfare to have other countries (possibly SKorea)to maybe rise against Japan about their own problems too.
