China Says Missiles Aimed at Taiwan to Be Removed ‘Someday'

On September 22nd, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said that someday the Chinese missiles based opposite Taiwan, and aimed at targets in Taiwan, will be removed. Wen also said relations are as good as they have ever been and should continue to focus on economics. Taiwan President Ma Ying Jeou welcomed Premier Wen's statement. Chinese leaders rarely talk about military matters, and Wen's statement is as much a reminder of China's present capability to strike Taiwan with 1,000 or more ballistic missiles as it is a promise to withdraw them in the future. Evidently Wen's condition for removing the missiles was not reported in Taiwan; that condition is reunification.

Japan Releases Chinese Fishing Boat Captain

On September 24th, the Japanese Public Prosecutors Office released the Chinese fishing boat captain who had been in detention for ramming two Japanese patrol boats. Japan caved mostly because of Japanese business pressure. Chinese retaliation included postponing bilateral gas development talks, a halt to public and private exchanges, and the suspension of rare earth exports to Japan. This might be short term wise and long term foolish because it sets the precedent that Japan backed down from rightfully prosecuting a law breaker in Japanese claimed waters. The next incident will be more difficult to handle and the stakes will likely be higher.
