So, even as a great democracy, there is still significant inequality for women in the 21st century in Japan?!! I am disappointed. You can do better!!!!

@Scrote. Well that is democracy for you. The Japanese people have elected the LDP by a big margin. Democracy is always always wise as compared to other political systems. We should trust in the people's verdict when it comes to the democratically elected party. Believe in the LDP this time please.

Indeed JanesBlonde. Whereas, Japan's manners and etiquette much much much better and unquestionable. We all should trust Japan's LDP. Always always always trust the party elected in a democracy in Japan, unlike China.

Yea Poke! C'mon! Whereas in democratic Japan, there is very very very little corruption if not at all. Modern Japan is morally clean when it comes to corruption.

Zenpun, that is a result of Japan's democratic choice, unlike China. We must go along with it and embrace it. This is the people's verdict in the election. Abe-nomics here we come!

Folks, Japan has really really nothing to worry about. Japan still has one of the world's HIGHEST per capita GDP and still has the world's 3rd largest economy. Just keep coasting along. Japan is still advanced and developed with a great democratic system to withstand this minor issue.

@PnoyMafia, every year you think is a bad year for China. Nothing happened. Tibet is still not free for many decades. What makes you think 2013 will be any different?

Tokiyo, looks your your "smart and educated" society in Japan didn't successfully make your economy stronger independent of China.

Japan, blood is on your hands. If one or more fishing boats are shot at, then all bets are off when it comes to China's military measures/retaliation.

Waxman, you are wrong. Tibet belongs to China as it is now. You cannot change it! And Taiwan is not on Japan's side when it comes to the Diaoyu Islands!

@Rounin78: Greedy Japan thinks that because it is a superpower, it is going to step on its neighbors (South Korea, China, and Russia). Let me tell you, JAPAN, you are so WRONG. Japan, you have to RESPECT. -fixed-

Beijing should take action. Otherwise, China's righteous claims would become a farce. I am disappointed, Hu Jintao.

So much for reducing tension and conveying a hand of conciliation, Japan. Nice going! I hope it's worth it. -_-

@hatsoff: But Japan's diplomatic behavior is certainly not earning praise from its neighbors. All I see is friction and confrontation from the Nippon leadership.
