    kurisupisuMay. 26, 2015 - 07:38AM JST No,it adds up to bad news for all of us-China holds nuclear weapons which would be used to defend its borders.

    Is anyone planning on invading China? News to me. Since 1961 when China went nuclear they announced that they would never be the first to use nuclear weapons in a war. If they changed their minds China would get blow off the map. What's bad news for all of us is if the Chinese dictatotship is allowed to take control of Asia, which is their real goal. The rest of the world preparig to stop China's expansionism and minimize the threat of war is what's good news for all of us.

    FrungyMay. 24, 2015 - 11:34PM JST "jeff198527May. 24, 2015 - 10:30PM JST Pearl Harbor wasn't cowardly, Frungy. Japan just couldn't just sit back and let itself be attacked." With all due respect I disagree. The conventions of war at that time required a declaration of war BEFORE an attack. To that extent it was cowardly to attack without observing the conventions.

    Is it not an established fact that a declaration of war issued and was to be handed to the Sec of State prior to the attack commencement time? But the Japanese embassy was delayed in decoding and translating it? In other words Imperial Japan did make an attempt to comply with international conventions. I've heard some express their view that the "delay" was deliberate, those sneaky Japs, LOL. But frankly, if the declaration was to be handed to the US and the attack to occur one hour later, there's no need to deliberately "delay" anything. We got caught wih our pants down big time. (ala 911), so far down that some say that's what seems almost deliberate.

    StrangerlandMay. 25, 2015 - 12:05PM JST If it were laughable, then it would be a non-issue, because no one would agree with the Chinese on the matter. The fact that it's an issue, with many people on both sides, means it's not laughable, and is a very real issue.

    It's only an issue for China and their tributary state South Korea. It;\'s not an issue for the rest of Asia and the entire world who are far more concerned with China's military and terrotorial expanmnsion TODAY, rather than 70 year old history.Yes, it is quite laughable,

    Living MemoryMay. 24, 2015 - 05:21PM JST "Apologies HAVE been made numerous times in the past. " Its not enough to make phoney apologies. Only real apologies count.

    So China accepted Japan's apology in 1972, signing ther Sino-Japanese Treaty of Friendship, even reaffirmed it again in 1978, received aid, assistamce and investments from Japan....then in 2010 when it wanted to claim the Senkaku Islands, China suddenly realized that the apology was phony? The beauty of CCP propaganda is that it's so obviously convenient and flies in the face of logic that it's laughable that China actually expects the rest of the world to buy it.

    " The Japanese government should instruct Mrs. Abe not to attend Yasukuni."

    Last I checked the Japanese government is not a one party dictatorship like China that can ignore an individuals rights and freedoms.

    Sorry but Taiwan does not make anti-Japan sentiment a political and diplomatic tool as China does Even you would have to admit that this is a fact. As for "hatred", you want us to believe that every person of Chinese nationality or background is supposed to hate Japan . I'm just pointing out that Taiwan does not.

    China's actions are what's dangerous, irresponsible and provacative. China with it's dreams of territorial expansion and control over Asia is testing the wrong country now. Just ask any America hater.

    Living MemoryMay. 22, 2015 - 11:59PM JST @OssanAmerica "The Chinese who fought Imperial Japan was mostly the Nationalist Chinese of the KMT under Chiang Kai Shek." Yeah, and they were so brilliant on the battlefield that the communists managed to boot them off the mainland just 3 years later.

    Yup. The KMT troops tired and worn from fighting the IJA were no match for the backstabbing communist troops who sat back and let them take the beating.

    Come on. I think its time to admit that BOTH sides are chock full of BS propaganda. Both the KMT and the communists contributed significantly to attacks on the IJA.

    That's CCP propaganda. The proof is in the fact that Taiwan is not fixated on WWII and does not make hating Japan official government policy. Same with all the other REAL WWII Allied nations.

    China is being ridiculous as usual. Rather than constantly whining to Japan about "facing up to history" how about China "facing up to the present"?

    China's constant whining about 70 year old WWII history and Japan doesn't hold much water when today right now they are engaging on a territorial expansion agenda that is threatening the peace and stability of the region. Ironically apart from China and it's South Korean tibutray state, South East Asia is welcoming changes to Japan's military restrictions and lookigforward to assistance and participation. China can put their "Nine Dash Line" where the sun don't shine.

    The Chinese who fought Imperial Japan was mostly the Nationalist Chinese of the KMT under Chiang Kai Shek. The Nationalist Chinese were US Allies during WWII, Chased off the mainland by the Communists, Taiwan does not make Anti-Japan setient or a fixation on WWII a poltical or diplomatic tool, The Communists did not defeat the KMT until 3 years after WWII ended, They are not thnothinones wgho defeated Japan, yet they take the credit for it and ingrain this into their children. Korea was part of the Japanese Empire from 1910 till 1945 when WWII ended. Over 240,000 Koreans served in theJapanese military during WWII, and some were s brutal towards Allied POWs that over a thousand were tred and convicted as class B and C War Criminals. Yet South Korea pretends that it was nothing more than a "victim" in WWI just like all the other Asian nations, What this all adds up to is that all the Nations that fought Imperial Japan in WWII not just in Asia but the US, Australia, UK, even Russia, do not harp on Japan's 70 year old WWII history. Yet he two natuons which are not as quaified to be harping on that issue are the ones making it an official issue. Add to that the fact that South Korea in 1965 and China in 1972 accepted Japan's apologies and benefits putting WWII history to rest, and are now denying these facts to pursue an anti-Japan agenda looks ridiculous in the eyes of the entire world incuding the Chinese viewers of these silly propaganda TV shows,

    Okinawa has always been a victim of it's geographical location throughout history. If the Communists hadn't ousted the KMT from China in 1948, or the Soviets created North Korea, perhaps the US would have no need for an East Asian presence. And likewise Japan would have no need to have a US presence on it's soil, But that's not what happened. No doubt many Okinawans would like US bases to be gone. But they way the world is going they would probably be simply replaced by JSDF bases.

    M3M3M3, there is a limit to how much the Coast Guard can handle; Which is why I believe laws are being discussed to allow SDF use for such purposes when the scope is beyond the CG's ability to handle. China is now designating Fishermen as "Maritime Militia" and the Chinese fishing fleets, tied directly to Chinese government control and direction through real time communications, should be treated as Chinese military vessels, if such equipment and evidence is found onboard. China's game is to skirt "military" as much as possible to force other nations to spend on their Coast Guards to keep up, and it is likely best that the smaller Asan nations do not fall into this 'trap".

    No its not MacArthur's "fault". US policy was based on the need to keep Japan intact and nurture it as an ally against the ever present Communist Threat. Same thing would have happened in Germany if the Soviet Red Army hadn't over run over half of Germany.

    "“If it had just been my personal statement, it would have had little value, but it was adopted by the cabinet and so its weight is different,” Murayama said in Tokyo Monday."

    Is Murayama aware that his apology is considered "not sincere" by China ajnd South Korea and therefore doesn't mean squat?

    The usual CCP attempt to take the credit of the Nationalist Chinese under Chiang Kai Shek for fighting the IJA. It's very funny when today's "China" claims to have been a US "ally" in WWII, when they attacked and defeated the Nationalist Chinese who were our alles, fought against us in thr Korean War and supported North Vietnam. When has Communist "China" EVER been a U.S. ally?

    "China should “not be invited” because it’s a “competitor” to the United States

    I disagree. The United States is not attempting to expand territorial sovereignty and control in east Asia. The correct word would be "adversary".

    jeff198527May. 17, 2015 - 05:26AM JST What are 50,000 Marines going to do against 1.6 billion Chinese?

    Every person in China is a soldier?

    Besides, China isn't really a true threat to Japan.

    Yes China is more than that. It is a threat to all of Asia and eventally, if left unchecked, a threat to the entire world. What makes it so is that it is the worldest largest, wealthiest, authoritarian one-party dictatorship with a military created and existing to support and protect that party, not the people or the country. The lack of citizens voting rights ensures that the government has no alternative but to use force, either against other nations or it's own people, to secure it's control over the country in the face of unrest. Such unrest can stem from economic reasons such as shortage of food and energy, and with that 1.6 billion population, the largest of any country on Earth, it's current behavior in the East and South China Seas and openly declared intent to push the U.S. out of the western Pacific in an effort to fullfil itls territorial expansion goals suggests that China is not going to solve it's own problems peacefully in coordination with the international community.
