The Self Defense Force is not the Imperial Army nor Navy. I served in the SDF and comparing them with the old Imperials is insulting. The old Japan is gone though there are a few fruits flakes and nuts that want it to return. However the constant rubbing Japans nose in the Imperials crime is too much to take. Most people will agree they did some very bad things but that was them and not us. I just do not see how Japan can maintain good relations with a country that bashes them. The Republic of Korea needs to make the choice of being a friend with the Peoples Republic of China or Japan. I have been to Korea and they hate Japanese. So my guess is the hotel waited to the last minute to make it impossible for the event to be relocated. Maybe they were bribed to do this evil deed.

It is called "collective defense" and it is a bad ideal. The Republic of Korea wants Japan as an enemy and I say lets destroy relations. It is time to downgrade relations with Seoul and stop all military cooperation. Next tell the Americans they can not use their bases to support the southern faction of Korea in the case of conflict. Japan needs to be neutral in any Korean conflict.
Good relations with the southern faction is impossible. Their politicians each try and outdo each other with Japanese hatred. Lets give them the wages for their hatred!

Japan needs to stay out of the Korea civil war. The southern faction hates Japan with a passion. Deliberate insults month after month, year after year.

What does the Peoples Republic of China expect? They are making threats against Japan and the other nations. As for their troops, how do they expect to use them against Japan?

So Joe Bigs anything done against America is alright? After all in their last 2 wars hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians died. You can not have it both ways! Hate means hatred returned, dirty deeds means the deeds will be returned ten fold. The firebombings did nothing to hasten the wars end. The blitz did not make the British want to surrender and in fact had the opposite effect. So the American troops raping and killing is a war crime. The Japanese had their criminals and America has theirs as well. I do not think winning makes their actions alright. Remember during WWII America was the land of concentration camps, acute racism and more. So tell me again why war crimes done by Americans are tolerated?

Ukraine should fill up its reserves and prepare to cut off the EU. Why should the Ukraine provide transit for Russian gas exports to the EU for free? Perhaps they should put charges on the gas pipelines to keep them from falling to the Russian military.

Klausdorf better than GM is doing for its customers. American "brand" cars are mostly made in Mexican parts and they can kill you. Toyota is correcting this problem not covering it up.

The truth is the additional air pollution is killing people. The additional pollution is mostly coming from Japan not China. Clean air will make people more healthy and less sick. Look at China and tell me how many die from atomic power and how many died from burning fossil fuels. I am surprised monsters are not being used as a reason against atomic power.

I do not see a way forward for relations with the Peoples Republic of China. We are almost at war with them now. A wrong move on either party will lead to armed conflict. Wish I could put my uniform back on and help defend my country. Guess I am just too old for active service. It the PRC wants peace they will resind their defense zone and give up on territory park of Okinawa Prefecture.

Problem is making an enemy of The Russian Federation will destroy Japan. I was not in favor of importing fuel from Russia but now it is important. Unless the atomic plants are placed online it is this or chronic fuel shortage. America would import fuel for its bases from Alaska and force Japanese utilities to supply their bases while there are power blackouts. PM Abe has to decide what is in Japans best interests and not be an "apple polisher" for America. A true and just peace with the Russian Federation is worth making the Americans unhappy.

There are a lot of more holy than thy posts. Why should Japan give the Hague veto power over our laws? Will the USA give the world court veto power over its laws? Anyhow it is cartoons, next you will want to put people in prison for stick child porn. This will make real child porn illegal. Why do foreign people want to dictate laws to Japan?
