Of course they would put up the statue in a "large" public park with a "full-size" running track. As a part of a play area with "apparatus" for children?

While we're at it, why don't any of the Japanese companies that suffered major losses take the Chinese government to court for compensation, for failure to keep civil order and protect property after the initial rioting? After all, most of the damage occurred after the first day or so of the mob protests, so it wasn't like there was no warning.

The German government might want to listen to Dr. Paul Krugman first, before pointing any fingers about economic policy. Starvation budgets are not the answer.

Great, and what are the delivery systems to go along with the nukes? Unless it's a doomsday self-destruct device (remember Beneath the Planet of the Apes?), they will just sit in Japan. Last I checked, it takes a long time and lots of money for ICBMs, missile subs and long-range bombers, all of which seem to be missing from the SDF locker...

He can take all those lessons learned from his previous "successful" premiership, and continue steering the LDP into the basement where they belong. No sense in repeating the same mistakes, already!

More two-dimensional thinking in a three-dimensional world. But it's worse than the pot simply calling the kettle black; China has a real genius for selective historical memories.
