    "..its rising-sun ensign, a symbol inherited from the wartime Imperial Navy, flying from its main mast."

    It was inherited from way before that but the media just has to use wording to suggest otherwise. The Japanese navy used this flag in the Sino-Japanese war of 1884, the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 where Japan was supported by the UK and US, WWI where Japan was an Allied power. Comments like these which suggest that the flag is directly and only connected to WWII is why many SKoreans are under the misconception that it is some kind of fascist flag, The US F-22 Raptor Fighter Squadron (27th Exp) based in Kadena Okinawa use this patch: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USAF-27th-EXPEDITIONARY-FIGHTER-SQUADRON-F-22-RAPTOR-KADENA-2013-PATCH-/151157272227?pt=LHDefaultDomain0&hash=item2331aceea3

    wtfjapanNov. 16, 2014 - 12:30AM JST funny how they only get the proof from a Japanese guys lies or documentation long since destroyed, how about >asking some of the thousands of women that were actually the sex slaves.

    "Thousands" of former Comfort Women have not come forward with any claims. In 1993 Prof Ahn investigated 50 former Comfort Women in South Korea and found their testimony to be "not credible". Your view is an example of how Asahi's false story has shaped popular opinion on the subject.

    EthanWilberNov. 16, 2014 - 09:33AM JST "For anyone who may have second thoughts on Japan’s war-time sex slavery just because of Asahi Shimbun’s reporting mistakes. Please refer New York Time’s Op page..."

    How about Reading the US ARMY Report no.49 from 1944 interrogating captured Comfort Women during the war? AS opposed to an editorial written by someone who wasn't alive at the time? 39-1945/codex/Documentos/report-49-USA-orig.html

    sf2kNov. 15, 2014 - 05:25PM JST except the comfort women had nothing to do with this one man, so rather than make the limited correction about the >man's statements this instead becomes fodder for the righties of Japan to denounce the issue

    While this Yoshida's fake story had nothing to do with the Comfort System itself, it had everything to do with the views held by people such as yourself that women were dragged out of their homes or that 200,000 women were involved. These views are inaccurate and the result of this false story run by this newspaper. That the story was false was pointed out by scholars decades ago but people, such as yourself, denounced such people attempting to establish facts as "apologists". The Comfort Women system was a military brothel system, and Japan was not alone in having one during WWII. The women were recruited and some undoubtedly deceived into employment. That this issue can never be resolved is not because of "denial" of events but by "denial of facts" by those who persecute Japan for it.

    The "pivot" will not have any real teeth until we get a Republican administration into office. Barak Obama is a great orator yes. Leader? Don't think so and neither do our adversaries.

    The Germans occupied Chinese territory. The Japanese along with the British fought and kicked them out. So Chinese hate the Japanese. OK I get it,

    So...The International Tribunal for the Far East never took place? Over 1000 were convicted as class A, B & C war criminals. So what were these people prosecuted for? Littering?

    It's silly to blame Abe instead of the Chinese dictatorship that decided to flex their muscles by implementing an ADIZ that overlaps other countries' and exerting their control over commercial flights, something that other nations do not do, China has a past record of shooting down a commercial airliner and they most certainly can not afford the international condemnation that doing it again would draw.

    tinawatanabeOct. 31, 2014 - 01:39PM JST Why does US not do anything? They say they are here to protect Japan, but I've never seen them protect Japan in >action.

    Because nobody has attacked Japan. Routine defense of Japanese territory and challenging intrusions is a JSDF responsibility.

    I agree that the first thing China should do is guarantee that all attendees will be able to breathe. Otherwise it would be a pretty funny sight to see the foreign delegates all arriving wearing gas masks.

    Se wasn't just a tourist she was working with patients. The risk is high enough that she should as a Medical professional accept the wisdom of going into a three week quarantine. She should be advocating it rather than fighting it. It boggles the mind how any human being could be altruistic enough to go to the infected region to help can be so self centered at the same time as to "sue".

    Yuriotani, I hate to rain on your parade, but Japan has already sent minesweepers to the Korean Peninsula during the Korean War 1950/51. Except that it was a covert operation carried out by the US Navy using former Japanese Imperial Navy minesweepers and crew. One Japanese crewman even died. And this was without any reinterpretation of the J-constitution.

    Would love for some common sense to start taking hold on these isles, apparently not much yet........

    The J-govt is buying Ospreys for the JSDF. Looks to me like the majority on the isles have common sense, while a minority don't. This is pretty much the same in every democratic country. I bet this minority are secretly on he Chinese payroll.

    Sorry but these protesters are fools. They aren't thinking about what the Ospreys are being used for. And if what are they going to do in a couple years when the JSDF starts flying them all over?

    Dwayne The Rock" Johnson's grandfather Peter Mavia was a Pro Wrestler and was in Japan many times in the 1960s. He appeared in the 007 movie "You only live twice" as a Japanese muscle thug and did the fight scene with Sean Connery in Osato's office.
