Chucky, Abe and his cronies in the LDP are the fringe in Japan. Why does the ROK bash our entire country every time these people shoot their mouths off to receive attention? Historians in Japan have put down their blather as nonsense. Now Koreans will continue to bash Japan. lastly when in modern Japan have their been mobs killing Koreans? So many young men are "herbivore" men and the protestors in the black vans are drunk. So please do not stir up trouble with not true things. There are no mobs in Osaka and Tokyo.

global watcher because Russia can seize all of Japans investments in Russia. This includes the oil and gas investments. Then lose the imports of oil and gas. I have written about this before and Abe has to chose between Moscow and Washington. Really Japan has a lot more to lose "supporting" Washington.
Vic M Osaka the bases are paid for by Japan.

Fox and AP are saying the flight was lost on radar was less than a hour after the plane departed. Now add two flying on stolen passports and it looks grim. I pray that against all odds the passengers and survived the crash. However it looks more and more like terrorism.

Mitch Cohen never said they were 100 percent at fault. As for the U tube videos shows Japan has its trouble makers as well. Still there has to be a reason for this backlash. Also FYI I would never join one of these groups. Their actions reflect poorly on themselves and Nippon.

This is a backlash against many years of hatred shown by the Peoples Republic of China and Korea. It seems every time I turn on the TV there is yet another flag burning demonstration. House wife's watch a lot of TV and after years become afraid of Chinese and Koreans. I point out that Koreans also demonstrate against the USA and burn their flag as well. So how do you feel when you see the flag of your country being disrespected?
YuriOtaniMar. 05, 2014 - 12:56PM JST
The Peoples Republic of China may believe the US will do nothing if they take these islands. After all they have done nothing after the Russians invaded Georgia in 98 and now nothing when they invaded the Ukraine. It gives them the green light to invade these islands. They might invade some or all of the Okinawa islands believing the US will do nothing.

CH3CH0, the Koreans really hate all Japanese and this includes the people of Okinawa. Like the Peoples Republic of China they want Japan to be punished even more than the Pacific War. My last trip to the Republic of Korea was painful at best. As for the Japanese when have you ever seen the leaders of the Republic of Korea effigies burn or their flag? So now house wife's are turning against Korea. What do you expect each action produces an equal counteraction.

If Putin gets away with this invasion, then soon we can expect the Peoples Republic of China to invade the disputed islands. The SDF will resist the PRC but will our American allies support Japan? My guess is President Obama does not have the spine.

Janes Blonde, well nothing like showing the non resolve of the United States. It is like when daddy Bush gave his “chicken Kiev” speech. The current US Administration has zero spine. If Reagan was president the 82nd and 101st would be sent to Ukraine. If Obama does not act soon the entire Ukraine will fall to the Russians. Then what? To protect them was part of the agreement when the Ukraine gave up the nukes. Mister President, you need to act now!
YuriOtaniMar. 03, 2014 - 05:50AM JST
America sitting back and doing nothing calls in question all of the other agreements. The US signed an agreement to support Ukraine independence. Will America support Japan in case the Peoples Republic of China takes the disputed islands? How about if they attack the Republic of China? This is a repeat of 1938 when Germany took over Czechoslovakia. Will the Russians attack one of the NATO countries next? Perhaps Poland in 1939? Appeasement does not lead to peace but war. History is repeating itself. Sanctions will not stop President Putin. Russia respects strength not weakness.

I saw the UN Security Council Session. It was like something out of the 1930's. Sending in troops to "protect" the ethic Russians. Now try and substitute Russian with German. Russia has broken the 1994 agreement in the guise of protecting Russians. This is a repeat of Czechoslovakia in 1938. Will President Obama go there coming back waving a "agreement" and saying "peace in our time".
YuriOtaniMar. 02, 2014 - 08:08AM JST
If she was just against "Honest" Abe it is one thing. The Republic of Korea is using this as a bat against the entire country. President Park is making it harder for Japan to shut up Abe and his minions. I do agree with the Korean people but again make sure of your target.

The rubber has hit the road, will the Americans defend the Ukraine? If they do nothing it would give the Peoples Republics the impression they will do nothing in case of attack. Will NATO do anything? My take is this first part is a test, if the Americans do nothing they will invade the entire Ukraine.

Murayama sanma is correct Abe should stop pissing off the other countries with their whitewashing revisions. He also needs to stop trying to eliminate article #9. Making Japan a threat to the other nations does not make peace. Give it up Abe and your right wing minions! You do not represent the majority views of the peoples of Japan.

A stronger response is for NATO to have "defensive" exercises of their own.

Suga chan needs to put his mouth in the "safety position" and thus giving his brain a chance. Rewriting history is using it to win votes from fringe elements. People like Suga disgust me.
