Abe is a nationalist and not a pro American.

Often seen placards in Okinawa "Yankee Go Home," "Marines Out" etc. are becoming infringement as speeches of eliminations. Good move!

It is not the problem of America but of Japan that relies the defense of the country on a foreign military. It is a good chance for Japan that Trump wants to withdraw U.S. Forces from Japan if Japan does not pay all the expenses. Change the peace constition and build a full fledged military and replace U.S. Forces on Okinawa with JSDF.

He may have used the public money to save his small income. The metropolitan governor's mothly income is 1.39 million yen. I think it is cheap considering the heavy job as a governor.

We declared a war against America and lost the war. I don't remember any case in our history a loser in a war asked for an apology from a winner. A war is a war. Anything can happen. Welcome Obama to Hiroshima and never suggest about apology. It is against the samurai spirit.

After the war, Russia tried to get all Hokkaido. It was lucky that it finished with the four small islands. The islands may become important when a war happens otherwise the islands are not important.

It may make Japan more vulnerable to islamic terrorism to cooperate with France. The terrorism by islam comes from hate against christianity or western civilizations which colonized, exploited and looked down upon islamic people before. Japan has nothing to do with their history. Stay away from cooperations with France and other western countries that are the targets of islamic terrorism.

A wise move. We are not like Chinese or Koreans that impetuously repeat unproductive political anti-Japan campaigns.
For living people, keeping friendly relationship is more important than getting angry looking back into the past inciting hostile feelings.

It is good to avoid the suspects lie at the court helped by their corrupt lawyers claiming that they were forced to confess uncommitted crimes in interrogations.

Japanese people are increasing who do not take what Trump says at face values. Probably he is strategically acting and speaking to appeal directly to frustrated poor whites.

Japan is a country where national disasters hit people often. We have lived in such a place for long and it trained Japanese people. They became resilient and patient. What happened is happened "shikatanai." I think people of Kumamoto will come back soon.

This is a healthy idea and our way of Japan. Leave the unproductive jobs of demanding apologies to other countries to Korea and China.

Japanese government has never demanded an apology to America. We know it is unproductive. Our attitude is "We do not repeat mistakes" which is inscribed in the memorial stone in Hroshima.

America and Americans are very self righteous as much as arrogant - politically as well as individually. They are strong good and bad. They do not apologize to others or to foreign countries repeatedly.

I think John Kerry can become a fine president of America. Sorry, they have to choose from among unimpressive candidates.

Do American textbooks at their schools tell that the atomic bombs were used in Japan to put an end to the war soon? All Americans do not fail to say so when asked about the bomings. We Japanese do not believe the excuse they use as a primary reason. However. we do not do a rude thing like placing a statue of the victims in front of the American embassy in Tokyo.

In today's Japan, there is no day without a news reporting about the problems involving the aged people. While, I do not hear very much about the issue from America and other countries. How are they dealing with the problems?
