    Pukey2Feb. 11, 2016 - 11:29AM JST Ossan: "Most Japanese couldn't read "Habomai". People saying that she shouldn't be expected to know the kanji are just making up excuses for the average Japanese's low level of kanji recognition nowadays.

    I didn't say she shouldn't be expected to know the kanji "mai". My statement means most Japanese would read it Hamai unless they knew it was Habomai. Read my whole comment,

    The only reason that North Korea takes this attitude towards the UN and the world is because of China's 1961 agreement to defend North Korea from any attackers. Anyone who actually believes that China is doing all it can to stop North Korea's nuclear program gets the naivite award of the year. It's about time that US media started telling it like it really is: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/02/10/north-korea-sanctions-wont-work-heres-why-china/80183710/

    I find it so typical that this anti-JP JT Forum crowd is quick to criticize Japan for donating only USD 1,000,000.- The U.S. donated USD 500,000.- And China (which claims to own Taiwan) donated USD 304.059.-

    Most Japanese couldn't read "Habomai". Like most of Hokkaido's geographical names they are "ate-ji"; kanji arbitrarily applied because they sound like their Ainu names. But there's really no excuse for the Minister in charge of the Northern Territories issue to not have learned this.

    " is making social media videos backing Japanese right-wing views that have made him a celebrity among hawks in the Asian country."

    The author of this article is a complete idiot. If this man is backing "Japanese Right Wing views" then so is the US Government. I guess the US Military is backing "Japanese Right wing views"? As are the Philippines, Vietnam, Australia and India?

    " and could presage an arms build-up if China feels threatened by the rollout."

    Do they mean China's massive buildup over the last couple of decades? Or are they talking about a new one?

    The testimonies are worthless as proven by Professor Ahn of Seoul University. It is up to the nations that allege that 200,000 women were kidnapped to show evidence to support it. From 1020 to 1945 the Policemen in Korea were Koreans. Shouldn't be hard to find reports and evidence.

    The change that Abe is proposing simply "corrects" it to match present reality. It doesn't add anything to it. The inconsistency leaves room for needless suits and litigation.

    It was the United States, which after WWII imposed Article 9 on a defeated Japan but then just 5 years later forced Japan to violate it by creating the JSDF. The constitution was circumvented by creating the SDF as an extension of the National Police Force, rather than a "military". And so Japan has gone 66 years in violation of it's constitution. It is about high time that it was amended to simply reflect reality as it stands. Those who think Japan after 7 decades of peace and democracy, as well as a near allergic reaction to war is going to go back to a militarist state need their heads examined.

    China is the only country conducting an information war by flooding internet web sites and forums with pro-CCP propaganda Really? Then what has Japan been doing with overseas textbook publishers?

    Countering China lead propaganda. The Koreans have been a proxy till now but that is finally changing.

    Japan needs to sit down with China to discuss the sovereignty of the islands

    No, China needs to stop trying to steal territory from all of it's smaller Asian neighbors, Now that they know they will never be able to grab the Senkakus without engaging the United States maybe we'll start seeing some civilized behavior from them.

    sfjp330Jan. 30, 2016 - 01:38PM JST If Japan 's claim is so strong, then in comparison of the issues, why don't you tell us why Japan don't take South Korea to ICJ on Dokdo/Takeshima?

    Japan has asked South Korea to settle the Takeshima dispute at the ICJ THREE TIMES and South Korea has refused all three times.

    ICJ means nothing. Regardless if Japan or China went to ICJ, there is no guarantee that loser of the case will not follow the ruling that was not in their favor.

    Japan is a signatory to an agreement that compels it to accept ICJ rulings, It's rather disgraceful that China, throwing it's weight around as a UNSC permanent seat member refuses to accept legal arms of the UN, such as the arbitration case brought against it by the Philippines.

    NerakaiJan. 29, 2016 - 09:09PM JST OssanAmerica Lots of people regarded the news of nationalization of those islets as the JP government's showing their intention of starting disputation. Most media also reported in that manner.

    Yes, lots of people buying the CCP propaganda as well as media. Unrestricted Warfare.

    Christopher GlenJan. 29, 2016 - 06:07PM JST Unfortunately it seems like a lot of posters on this forum fall into the China-bashing category

    China is the only country conducting an information war by flooding internet web sites and forums with pro-CCP propaganda, often through "posters" using Anglo-Saxon names touting comments on a par with the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesmen. It is only natural that such activity will result in counter responses from those who actually pay attention to the news and know what's going on.

    AsianGaijinYesWeExistJan. 29, 2016 - 04:19AM JST "The 2 islands that China whines about being "nationalized" were PURCHASED, meaning a monetary transaction whereby the deed is transferred, from THEIR JAPANESE OWNERS."

    NATIONALIZATION verb (used with object), nationalized, nationalizing. 1)** to bring under the ownership or control of a nation** Just like you described.

    That's right. The Japanese Government bought 2 islands and brought them under the ownership and control of Japan. Now under what country's control were they before the purchase when the deeds were in the names of Japanese citizens and the deeds registered as property of Okinawa Prefecture? That's right, they were under Japan's control. In other words this "nationalization" has absolutely ZERO effect on China or it's position regarding the Senkakus.
