I don't usually or lightly use overused words like "offended"/"offensive", but you characterization of Japanese patriots concerned about the Senkakus as right-wing lunatics is offensive. The Senkakus are absolutely Japanese territory, and Japanese people who object to absurd Chinese claims on Japanese territory, and Chinese incursions in Japanese water/land/airspace, should not be insulted for their common sense and their patriotism.
