"80% of the Tuna worldwide"? This is yet another story that makes no sense to me. I am not pointing a finger at the Japanese, but when Tuna are near extinction, we know to blame. For god's sake eat something else for a change.

Someone please comment on why the Chinese didn't nationalize these islands well over 100 years ago if they say they belong to them. It doesn't make any sense.

I can't understand these people? Why would anyone want to be a Communist? I don't want the North Korean leadership to get off "scott-free" once it finally falls from power, because of what they have done to their people and to the World. Its unacceptable. They are fanatically crazy, and have loss their minds over this hatred of the West. What have we done to them except beat them silly in the Korean War, which by the way, they started. Their ideology is brutal, and makes no sence except to the priviledged fanatical few that rule their people with a cruel hand.

Why didn't the Chinese didn't nationalize the islands years ago, if they think they own them? So "now" their interested?

How much more "research" do you Japanese need to do before you find what your looking for? For gods sake, stop eating everything that lives in the ocean and give the whales a chance or your whale gods might get angry.

I don't know who the Japanese people are. I think The Treaty of Kanagawa, in some ways more than others, did more harm than good. From Samurai to Scholars all in one day. Shades of cultural heritage notwithstanding, I think they have basically been absorbed by other cultures of the World.

Can someone please tell me why the Chinese never nationalized the islands if they own them as they say they do? I see that they have now lost their collective minds and are now acting like little children, taunting the Japanese instead of proving their case like normal people, thus gaining the support of the whole World in support of their cause to claim ownership of the Islands.

I am so sick of the Chinese Government and all of its supporters out there, and I can't wait until it is overthrown. Stop bashing Western Governments for their shortcomings just because your angry at us for some reason and look at China for what it is. Its a communist prison camp of conscience, and it should be destroyed. If you don't like the West, then go live in China.

Someone start a petition at change.org and I'll sign it, to begin to try and get the U.S base, who are also my countrymen, out of Okinawa. Give Okinawa back to the Japanese people and end all of this nonsense once and for all.

I like the idea if your going there to relax mentally, not unlike getting a massage. However, if your going for any "other" reason, its a bad idea.
