Those regimes that depend on Censorship and the Barrel of a Gun to keep its grip on power, can not be a dependable News source on "History". CCP tyrants vs. Elected Japanese leadership... I give my vote of greatest Confidence for the latter.

Malicious accusations being thrown at an undemocratic often brutal communist regime that has multiplied its GDP spending on an offensive military posture aimed at its closest neighbors? Gosh.

Odierno, upon orders from Leftist Obama, tells democratic Ally Japan, to play it cool with anti-democratic dictatorship PRC. After all, saying something like "tear down this wall!" might empower and give hope to millions, especially the dissidents and political prisoners languishing in rotten PRC jails. Oh no. We can't have that, now can we? Show some backbone in the face of tyrants? Oh no. That might make the US President as a weak willed flacid amateur. Can't have that.

While no official agenda has been released for the talks—widely seen as a symbolic, confidence-building exercise—Taiwan’s Wang last month said they had “crucial implications for further institutionalisation of ties between the two sides”.
The dangerous "institutionalization" and legitimizing of the dictatorship by the CCP is a very bad thing, aiding and abetting a rule by tyrants. So the KMT is more open to that than the liberty/sovereignity loving DDP. Its like watching a meeting of Comintern where all the lackies clap in unison for the grand leader. Repulsive.

Obama does not speak for me. We are all more than "disappointed" by that leftist fool we have for President.
“America said it was ‘disappointed’ but rather than being so sensitive about China’s feelings, they should be sensitive about the feelings of their ally,Japan,” said Abe aide and ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) lawmaker Seiichi Eto. “We were the ones who were ‘disappointed’.”

I would certainly recommend that PM Abe, and the Diet, do this asap.
Many individual American citizens like me will surely also agree, given awareness and comprehension of the facts of life in a dangerous world.
This is a very prudent thing to do, being realistic about the world around us.
I am not worried that Japan is a threat to my interests.
Nor to my home country's interests, nor the interests of fellow democracies worldwide.
The democracies of the world need to help each other with combined defense and humanitarian support cooperation on all levels.
The fact of democracy - that there are opposing powers that are absolutely anti-democratic and hostile to greater human liberty and self determination - the "fact" that democracies can survive is not a given and needs muscle. Some self determined nations, like Tibet. lost their freedom to a brutal conqueror. They had no muscle to defend, only flee or suffer unending punishment and terrible abuse.
The Freely Elected Government that exists in Taiwan ROC - allowed it to reach out and to help Japan when it was important to do so after 3/11. That was an excellent thing.
Nations with Allies with similar values, democracies, should come to each others aid, without snares and outdated unnecessary and no-longer-suitable restrictions on a nations sovereign defense. One less string to hold down Gulliver, when he may need to rise in defense of live and liberty.

Commie smears at the UN. Nothing new. Was the PRC's Ambassador doing some back slapping / holding hands with North Korea's Ambassador before he worked himself into a lather, I wonder. BFF's best friends forever. I wish the Comedy Channel would broadcast these UN diatribes so we could see the nuanced winks and nods, the foam on the yapping mouths. At least entertain me if youre going to be a hissy fit dramatist.

I hear the hardline communists in the PRC want to really harm me for having visited the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes in France as a teenager, plus the heinous offense of then praying at Yasukuni shrine in Tokyo as an adult (several times...). Well, my God. Is stronger than their Mao. Next time I visit Yasukuni, I'll pray for the peaceful overthrow of communism wherever it exists. Hooray, my God!
