While Yamato is super well known/rightfully well regarded inside Japan, outside, Nittsu is #6 freight forwarder in the world, a prestigious position indeed.

The US is not fulfilling its role of "leader of the free world" as it is humbled by idiotic decisionmakers. Either the PRC democratizes or there will be no more free world.

"Mr. Ambassador, Why not give each Chinese citizen the right to vote, to choose their leaders like in every other adanced society? Perhaps such a reform on Chinese soil, will herald a new era of trust and prosperity among great nations of the world. Falling back to bad old habits, reinforced by a one party dictatorship not beholden to represent an electorate, will just end badly, for all. So, please, Mr Ambassador, help your home nation to stand tall, in the fellowship of democratic nations. Stand tall, as does Japan, and all other demicracies, where border disputes are more gentlemans disagreements rather than a childs spat, or worse. Let your people vote."

The communists in the PRC have nothing to be ashamed of, so yes, bow before them and stop remembering 2.5 million deceased compatriots. Just take a pill and forget them. Yup.

A tad bit late, no? Too bad the extremist left in the USA posed such a stink when Pres.Reagan started work on SDI strategic defense initiative some 30 years ago. Our collective defenses against rabid dog dictators with missiles and blackmail would be so much more secure. "If you want peace, prepare for war." Wishing only peace and safety for our Japanese allies.

Re-apportionment is long a back office political party positioning kind of thing, with every 10 year census, in the US. How does Japan, under its relatively new post WWII constitution, address the timing of each national census and the distribution of voting strength? Its written into the US Constitution, thanks to those smart "founding fathers" of the Republic. But Japan's a Parliamentary system, not a Republic, and only so much can be laid at the doorstep of MacArthur and his recently passed assistance, the fine lady (her name anyone?) who helped insert provisions for equal rights between the sexes in Japans Constitution. Wondering. How different? Looking at this more closely may help find a way forward.

As a native New York kid who spent many formative years riding the subways while checking out the "innocents abroad" -- tourists from Japan -- and who'se been back and forth to Japan quite a few times as well, I certainly concur with the writers message - dangers lurk all over once out of Safe Japan, but am shocked; people read the articles in Playboy? Hmm couldve fooled me.

This is so sad, that the USA has been so populated by attorneys and their victims, now using US service members as their pawns, to blame some "deep pocket" target for, what, an earthquake? The tsunami? I think 4 out of 5 thinking atheists would say its reasonable to call the 3/11 disaster an act of God, but this lawsuit is an act of sheer greed coupled with stupidity. All the good will from Operation Tomodachi flushed down the toilet by these... Its shameful. To the people who work for TEPCO and its shareholders, I am truly sorry. I do not blame you for 3/11 and all the negatives that followed as a result of that natural disaster. As an American, know that those others do not speak for me. When someone joins the US Army, you know that you will, or may, be placed in harms way; then to turn around and sue the host country's private company devastated in the disaster? Jeez.

The US should no longer be Japan's nanny (abroad) any more than it should be a nanny to its own citizens at home. Standing up on your own two feet is a good thing. Abe is moving in the better direction.

Thereafter, claims of ownership of Okinawa, Guam, demands for a "demilitarized" Micronesia, the blackmail targeting of Hawaii by missiles, oh yeah, we are at the pre-Dec.7th moment, with a willfully blind commander in chief spreeding to implant socialism in the US Govt. I hope Abe knows enough when say enough is enough, join the demand a democratic revolution for the Chinese mainland. But silence and acquiecence is the rule of the day; thats not helping.
