About a decade ago I was at the shrine on August 15th, a couple days before my birthday. It was hot out, lots of people, some military ware, pomp but historical, and religious observations. I went to the front altar and paid my respects. I knew the act would be deemed offensive by communists in mainland china and that in itself was so odd, coming from an ideology that is responsible for untold millions of lives taken through violence, depravity and starvation. Warped. I said a prayer for the deceased, but then why would an atheistic communist be upset about prayer? To some deity or spiritual realm that they say does not exist. Well. I will return and be respectful. Honor thy ancestors.

This is why I will never set foot in the PRC.
I have been politically involved in the US and love freedom, respect human rights, and have spoken up about it. Who would ever put their life at risk of being a fly where the dictatorship is a huge flyswatter. Nope. Never. Until the regime is put 6 feet under.
Same goes for Japanese citizens thinking of visiting the PRC; why be a pawn in a rigged game, when its time for the regime to whip up some anti Japanese hatred. Nope. Guam is safer for a little vacation.

This clearly is mentally ill sociopathy, but there are eugenicists like the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, who would agree.
I will pray for the victims of this madman and their loved ones.

Thoughtfully presented article. One argument I hear from some outside of Washington DC, from whence I now write, is "would you trust a politician to build a skyscraper?" On the whole I agree with Todd Topolski's take on this.

Grateful that the US military is there to help our best friends and ally, Japan. What good is having a military deployed outside US borders, unless it is in a position to do good when urgently needed? Best wishes from your friends. Be strong!

Japan's view of the US elections... hmm.
He gave this speech this morning at a private club that I belong to, located in midtown Manhattan, where last night I met my first choice of the pack - which was Senator Rand Paul.
An informal video or his talk can be seen here: https://youtu.be/o8mi0eQ1kXo
The club was first formed by Women Suffragettes in the 1920's: http://www.wnrc.org/web/pages/about To those fellow Republicans in Japan reading this, keep your chin up! To the handful of folks who seem to be filled with vinegar over Republicanism, take two bromoseltzers...
My girlfriend in Shinjuku really can't stand Trump, who many long time Republicans do not even count as being a real Republican; he's just a disaffected right wing isolationist democrat.
Here's how I, as a long time Republican, have viewed current events:
Imagine being a passenger waiting for the boarding call to get on your flight. In walks in the crew all nicely dressed and smiling. Then a couple pilots arrive brusquely. There's something wrong. They start shouting at each other, one throws a roundhouse punch, another chucks an overnight bag at a steward, and then two pilots get each other into a headlock. And you are in the airport terminal waiting room, expecting to go somewhere. Thus, we have, the Republican primaries.

As a kid I used to catch blowfish by the the dozen in the waters off Shelter Island off the East End of Long Island, NY USA, but clearly the Japanese variety has that poisonous side that ours do not. My relatives loved them, easy to skin (no scales) and cook like light chicken breast. I would look at the fugu fish on display in the windows of places near Kabuki-cho amidst the young yak street urchins and wonder what the big deal was about these rather docile and somewhat common fish.

Seems like a small group of plaintive furtive sheep, bleating for an iron handed regime to go light. Asking a wolf not to be a wolf. No one talking boldly about Democracy, Freedom, Human Rights. Nope. Little boy puts finger in dam, dam still busts wide open. The story won't change with light handed diplomacy.

Normal tranquil relations between democratic nations are natural, while democracies & dictatorships will never have normal tranquil relations. If your neighbor beats his wife, and you love your wife, what kind of relation can one expect?
