China's state media gave prominent space last week to the People's Liberation Army's most outspoken hawks, who urged Beijing to adopt a unanimous policy of getting tough with Japan. The 10 generals agreed that an immediate war with Japan might not be beneficial for China. But they argued that China should take all measures necessary, including military action, to gain administrative control of the Diaoyudao, known as the Senkaku Islands in Japan.
Gen. Yang Yunzhong, another army leader from the Jinan Military Region, said he thinks Japan is suffering from "an imperial angst" and an "Ishiharaesque hysteria," referring to Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara.
