Taiwan and Japan are long-term allies against Communist China and the fishermen are mere protesters who have no significance in this dispute while those fanatically-nationalist fishermen have every right to engage in peaceful protests. Some Chinese military analysts claim that the territorial dispute will escalate into another Falklands war but Japan is defended by over 40,000 US military personnel who are obliged to intervene on Japan's behalf in the event of war based on Article 5 of the mutual defence treaty as it was confirmed by the US State Department and neither China or Taiwan would dare to attack Japan first. Niall Ferguson's Newsweek article explains further about the issue:
Why, then, are the Japanese so intent on a showdown over a bunch of barren rocks? Why does former defense minister Shigeru Ishiba go around saying that to lose these islands would be like “losing the whole country”? The short answer is that both Japan and China find themselves in the grip of internal political crises that are tempting their leaders to play the tried and tested nationalist card. Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda is facing imminent elections. He risks being out-jingoed by Ishiba. Last week Kurt Campbell, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, told a U.S. Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee: “We do acknowledge clearly ... that Japan maintains effective administrative control ... And, as such, this falls clearly under Article V of the [U.S.-Japan] security treaty.”
They were after Pearl Harbor.
