Senkaku or Diaoyu?

It is rather typical of a periodical named The Diplomat to write an opening paragraph like this: While Japan’s dispute with China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands has been notable for a number of reasons — mostly negative — one of the few positive elements has been the refusal of either side to send in the military. That may have changed with the recent deployment of Chengdu J-10 and Mitsubishi/Boeing F-15 fighter aircraft after a Chinese Y-8 maritime patrol aircraft headed toward the islands, but so far, at least, the confrontations have been limited to coast guard and other maritime paramilitary organizations. 

One of the few positive elements? RGR that, sticking to diplomacy will only go so far.
