    Idiots are people who either can not read or are unable to accept thge reality that; 1. Scientific Whaling is supported by the IWC under the IWC Scientific Comittee because data is needed to manage whale stocks, which is called "Conservation". 2. Conservation does not mean "leave them alone at all costs" that's "preservation". 3. Whales are as sentient as cows and are a natural marine resource that ,properly managed can be utilized sustainably. 4. THe Moratorium on commercial whaling went into effect with as a "moratorium" meaning a temporary cease of action, not a BAN which is n. This is because under IWCs charter the Moratoriums and Sanctuaries are tools to assist in the proper management of whale stocks for the Whalijg Industry. 5. The Southern Ocean where Japanese Scientic Whaling operates are INTERNATIONAL WATERS, not Australian or New Zealamd Territory. Haing a claim that isn't recognized by the entire world is not ownership. 6. IWC Artcile VIII specifially exempts Scientific Whaling from Moratoriums and Sanctuaries. 7, IWC Article VIII specifically requires that nations participating in Scientific Whaling process the meat, ie; for consumption.This means Japan would have to consume the whale meat even if they didn't want to. 8. The ICJ Ruling did not end Scientific Whaling, It ordered a stop to the then Jarpa II program and outlined what changes would be needed to meet the ICJ's requirements. That is what is comming, and it will be in accordance with the ICJ ruling.

    The United States supports PM Abe for many reasons, one of them being the desire to have Japan's military participate in supporting our allies in South east Asia in the face of China's expansionism. South Korea could never be counted on to ever play such a role, not just in capability but because they are subservient to China. And yet they expect the US to protect them from North Korea which is supported by China. Psychosis on a national level,

    Koreans never fought Japan. Korea wasn't even annexed in 1910 with a battle. They were part of the Imperial Japanese forces. So while two former enemies who fought tooth and nail killing hundreds of thousands in the process are able to put the past behind them, the Koreans somehow think that they are the victims. Amazing to see a whole country in denial of reality.

    The only "Victory" that China can be proud of is their victory over Chiang Ka Shek's KMT forces, whom they chased off the mainland in 1948 to form Communist China. The ones who actually fought and defeated Imperial Japan, the Allied powers which did NOT include Communist China don't harp on Japan's WWII history like China does. This is why it's not just Japan that's weary of China's WWII fixation, the hipocrisy is evident to the rest of the world. And being seen as a threat by its smaller Asian neighbors certaily doesn't help.

    Christopher GlenMar. 26, 2015 - 05:40PM JST "China’s foreign ministry regularly urges Japan to “show sincerity” over history, signalling that it does not believe Tokyo is earnest enough." Well Mr Abe certainly isn't

    Not really. All other nations in the world commemorate the end of WWII with an honest desire for peace, good relations and cooperation among past combatants. However the Chinese dictatorship continuously harps on WWII as if they never signed a treaty with Japa back in 1972 and makes no effort to move forward. Yes, they can go play with themselves. .

    These two statements are at odds. As far as I am aware (and I am very aware) a US citizen or US Perm Res, residing outside of the US has no obligation to file a tax return if their income is below the IRS established income threshold for that class (ie; ind, married, head of household etc). The same applies to those living IN the US.

    " he felt “totally responsible” for failing to see that his son needed help."

    This may sound extreme (like blowing people up isn't?) but we really need to treat Jihadism as a mental illness, a dangerous one at that where the afflicted pose a serious danger to themselves and others. People who become afflicted by Jahadism need help. After they are removed from society for safety reasons.

    "“All the firepower strike means of the frontline units of the (Korean People’s Army) will launch without prior warning… to blow up balloons,” the North’s frontline military units said in a notice to the South. It said the launch would constitute “the gravest politically-motivated provocation” against North Korea and “a de facto declaration of a war”,

    I love these NKorean decarations. Do they really need to depoly ALL of their firepower for this? And is the "without warning" suppose to frighten somebody? What difference does a warning make on a massive strike against balloons? I think if anyone south of the 38th flatulates the NKoreans consider it a "declaration of war".

    PM Abe has done more to bring Japan'sdeense position in line with US demands than any PM in Japanese history. These survior groups are going to have to accept the fact that current US military arrangements supercede their feelings of 70 years ago. As for Korean Americans, they can go back to Souh Korea if they can't support the US position. And I don't see any words of remorse from Koreans over the brutality they inflicted on US POWS in the Japanese camps in the Philippines. Nujerous Koreans were charged as B and C War Criminals because of this.

    scipantheistMar. 20, 2015 - 01:01AM JST @OssanAmerica There is the issue of setting up hotlines. It is disgraceful that hasn't been done yet, and guess who >was holding it up.

    Yup. Japa has been requesting htis for years now. And the U.S. has made it clear that it's a necessity to avoid incidents. But China has been refusing to move forward, probably too busy whining about Imperial Japan 70 years ago and stealing territory from their smaller Asian neighbors.

    What is there to be asking? China is seekig strategic dominance in the East and South China Seas. It sees the United States and it's alliances as the biggest obstacle to attaining that goal. Everything Japan is doing is to simply further the US alliance and support that obstacle. The only issue to be discussed is whether China is prepared to tell it's PLA/PLAN hotshots to avoid taking any provacative action which may intentionally or unintentionally cause a conflict.

    " Li said. “The crux of the issue is how the war and that part of history are viewed.”

    That's correct. China needs to stop pretending that they defeted Imperial Japan in WWII. It was the ROC under Chiang Kai Shek who was a allie power, not Mao and the Chinese Red Army. But mostlyChia needs to stop pretending that they didn't acept Japan's apology in 1972,receive ODA (which China insisted on instead of the reparations offered by Japan) and signed the , Sino-Japanese Treaty of Friendship wjich Chima itself reaffirmed in 1978. China was able to get off it's hole-in-the-ground-toilet ecnomic state with help from Japan which lead to full western help. Now that Chia doesn't need Japan's help they conveniently forget the 1972 treaty and the last 40 years of relations. What a pathetic and untrustworthy country.

    Funny how things change in 70 years. Before Japan was the invader.Today the US backs Japan and the Southeast Asian nations welcome Japan. China is now the aggressor and cause of tensios. Yet China keeps harping on Japan's WWII actions.

    "As a result, trilateral cooperation “hasn’t stably settled” and can be shaken “easily, at any time,” Lee said in a statement released to the media"

    Although it certainly had between South Korea and Japan after 1965, and China and Japan after 1972.

    "Relations soured in 2012 when the Japanese government angered China by nationalising some of the islands."

    Which were already owned by Japanese citizens and recognized as part of Okinawa Prefecture.

    I had no idea until now that the incident took place in the US. NY is one state that allows the disclosure of the amount of damages sought. Im sure it's going to be over 100 million USD.Or whatever plaintiff has deternined Korea Air have in the U.S.

    Truth is that China and South Korea are going to continue with their policies of using anti-Japan sentiment as an official political and diplomatic tool regardless of whether the statement is kept the same, duluted or strengthened. In all three instances Japan is going to axpress resmorsefor it;s pasr and pledge itself to peace in the future. As it has actually done for the 70 years following the end of WWII. China and South Korea's position can only change if those countries themselves so decide. What Abe or any other J-PM says has no bearing on this.

    Alex80 is correct. That' exactly what we want. Japan is wealthy enough and relies on global resources and trade routes to the extent that they can and should contribute to help keep the world at peace. Abe understands this. Villifying Abe as some right wing kook trying to bring back fascism and seeking to revive some Imperial conquest of Asia again is a ridiculously stupid concept.
