    ThePBotJul. 29, 2016 - 08:32AM JST It's funny how Japan apologists rarely comment on Japan about how they insist on saying there was no comfort women

    The first step n resolving an issue is to ensure that false information is not repeated. No one in any country, holds the position that Comfort Women did NOT EXIST. The Japanese Government has NEVER denied the existence of the Comfort Women or the CF System. PM Abe who has stated that they existed but "were not coerced (by Japanese troops). This statement is the origin of the fallacy that he denied their existence, What is interesting is that all available US military investigations of civilian Korean POWs as well as Comfort Women themselves during WWII indicate that the women were NOT rounded up and take away by Japanese troops. Recently several South Korean scholars have come out openly stating that the testimonies given by some former Comfort Women are contradictory, stating that they were "taken by Japanese troops" in one instance whereas stating that "they were sold by their parents" in another,

    How shocking to learn that there really is something scientific and research worthy about whales and that such work actually goes on by trained professionals in the field.

    Yoshitsune, the level of anti-Japan animosity can not be broken down as simply young and old. It is true as you say that among many young South Koreans they have no problem with Japan and in fact are fans of it's culture, music, etc. But there are many young South Koreans who are influenced by the anti-Japan bias that has been prevalent in South Korea. I am sure you must be aware that the Park administration has been cracking down on these "biased" textbooks. Look at a video of the protesters mentioned in this article above and tell me if they look like they've ever experienced colonial Japanese rule. The important thing is that the Park government has decided to turn things around. Most likely because South Korea wasn't getting any benefits by sticking to the anti-Japan program. Today you have a few South Korean scholars openly stating that some crucial aspects of the "testimony" given by former Comfort Women are questionable.

    This is not a Koreans vs Japan issue. The article shows that this is an internally South Korean issue, between the Park Government representing the many Koreans who wants to put this issue to rest and move on with more important things and those Koreans, most of whom are young who have been brainwashed by the South Korea education system and media and organizations wanting keep the hate alive. The Comfort Women n issue has been in the hands of non government organizations which the South Korean government itself has stated that a North Korean influence is suspected. It's about time that the issue be handled by a Government organization.

    The PAC ruling is legally binding. It determined that China is violating the UNCLOS (The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ) to which China is a signatory. China had a chance to represent it's position but they refused. Now they disregard the ruling and instead go on a global rampage to denounce the ruling and the tribunal. China is showing it's true colors to the whole world.

    Fre OkinJul. 28, 2016 - 03:30AM JST @OssanAmerica Let ShameFare begin! As I said, Australia, Japan, US are all outsiders. They are passersby in the South China Sea area. Compare to ASEANS, who Live There. what make you think passersby have more say than people who live there and have more at stake?

    China is an outsider. Attempting to take control of an area far from it's shores through ridiculous claims and territorial expansion.

    And I mistakenly believed and hoped that China (PRC) had evolved over the last couple of decades along with their economy. But I see that at the core they no better than North Korea in their twisted view of reality.

    Fre OkinJul. 27, 2016 - 11:15PM JST @OssanAmerica It is clear even US is starting to shy away from using PCA verdict to shame China into compliance

    The only thing that is clear is that China has no sense of shame. Do they pay you by the post or by word count?

    Fre OkinJul. 27, 2016 - 11:30AM JST @OssanAmerica "Wrong, the PAC ruling is legally binding."

    I exposed the PCA as a fraudulent body with no UN authenticity.....

    The only thing that China's position, rejection of not just the PAC ruling but the body itself exposes China's disregard for the rule of law shared by CIVILIZED countries on this planet. The more CCP supporters parrot the ridiculous Chinese Foreign Ministry position, the more this ugly view of China is impressed upon the world.

    "The Award of today’s date addresses the issues of jurisdiction not decided in the Award on Jurisdiction and Admissibility and the merits of the Philippines’ claims over which the Tribunal has jurisdiction. The Award is final and binding, as set out in Article 296 of the Convention and Article 11 of Annex VII. "

    China's unilateral actions violate rules established under UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea , to which China is a signatory. https://pca-cpa.org/en/services/arbitration-services/unclos/

    China can not act like an animal and argue ad infinitum to convince the world that they, not the rule of law is right. The rule of law is there to resolve disputes in a peaceful manner. But then, that doesn't seem to matter to China these days, does it?

    The usual CCP propaganda not withstanding, there already is a settlement. The position of South Korea, that this resolution puts the issue to an end permanently is very telling.

    crouching$amuraiHiddenNinjaJul. 27, 2016 - 08:36AM JST lol again, so many people here who believe Beijing has "no friends" is so completely naive. Vietnam and Russia's relationship with China has had some rocky periods

    Yes, "rocky periods" like shooting at each other. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/7720461/USSR-planned-nuclear-attack-on-China-in-1969.html http://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2015/05/01/402572349/ask-the-vietnamese-about-war-and-they-think-china-not-the-u-s

    Wrong, the PAC ruling is legally binding. It simply has no enforcement mechanism. Two different issues.

    Far from nothing. The Park Administration has made a 180 degree turnaround from their pro-China policy of the last couple of years. Between pressure from their protector the United States, and the realization that despite efforts to be China's lapdog China wasn't going to be nice to them at all, South Korea has woken up and smelled the coffee. China is not cutting South Korea the slightest slack in it's territorial dispute with them, and while it has coddled and protected North Korea all through it's missile and nuclear arms development it has come out firmly against THAAD, which South Korea considers just a means to protect itself from North Korea's belligerence. South Korea isn't taking this nonsense from China and has come out openly against China's take over of the South China Sea. With this change in policy has come a change in the China lead anti-Japan position as well with the Park administration actively making changes to South Korean education and society to eliminate the anti-Japan bias that has flourished. It will be a matter of time before they eventually close in on the organizations that control and carry on the remaining anti-Japan agendas.

    crouching$amuraiHiddenNinjaJul. 26, 2016 - 03:52PM JST Lol. It's pretty clear now that this South china sea is more of a "US and friends(Aussie and JPN)" vs "China and friends"

    China has no "friends". Just ask Russia or Vietnam how their "friendship" ended. China has "subserviants", the 21st century version of Tributary States perhaps; weak countries that it can force to act in their favor through economic pressures or threats. And the dog on the leash in Pyongyang.

    crouching$amuraiHiddenNinjaJul. 26, 2016 - 03:28PM JST I find that this "rebalance to asia" as dangerous as it is unnecessary. It seems like we're going to repeating history all over again. sigh

    The only country that is repeating history is China. Just like Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan in the 1930s.

    The ICJ ruling forced Japan to end their Jarpa II program. But the same court made clear what changes would have to be made to comply with "SCientific Whaling". Japan made changes, submitted them to the IWC Scientific Committee and commenced the Jarpa III program. Japan has abided by an International Court Ruling to which it is a signatory. In contrast China which is a signatory to the UNCLOS agreement not only refuses to accept the PAC ruling on UNCLOS but is on a global campaign to denounce the ruling. Quite a difference!

    China doesn't play by the world's rules when it comes to geopolitics. China doesn't play by the rules when it comes to trade and economy either. The doomsday crowd may well be right that the next major war will be caused by China with it's insatiable appetite for natural resources and refusal to work in cooperation with the international community.
