    I can assure you that there is absolutely no racial tension between Japanese Americans & Korean Americans. In fact the Asian American community as a whole gets along extremely well. As the article mentioned, inter ethnic relationships/marriages among Asian Americans are very common.

    It's my understanding that most Japanese Americans, especially in Asian American enclaves in Southern California, bay area, & the tri state know the history of comfort women and sympathize with their plight.

    As an American -

    I'm super glad that the elected officials sided with their constituents instead of bowing to economic threats from Japan Inc.

    IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE US - I strongly suggest that you get in touch with your Japanese American cousins.

    I hope that the summit leads to a warmer relationship in between Japan and Korea.

    To all the haters - Wait and see how the summit plays out before you start spewing hate.

    I do not like Abe BUT I applaud his decision action in support of the US and the EU position.

    GOOD!

    All the bickering and tension in NE Asia is getting out of hand.

    I feel bad for the tourist and her family. The event must have been traumatizing.

    I hope they understand the aggressive actions of the Hwy Patrol officers.

    The officers probably assumed that the driver was drunk or in the process of a crime as she was driving erratically at 1 am.

    I hope that rest of her family trip is stress free.

    Flashing lights in my rear view mirror, and if in doubt, to put the pedal to the floor and get to the nearest law enforcement station

    When driving in the US, I would seriously recommend that you pull over when you see flashing lights in your rear view mirror.

    If in doubt I recommend you SLOW DOWN AND PUT ON YOUR HAZARD LIGHTS and drive to a well-lite area like a gas station.

    Putting "the pedal to the floor" when flashing lights are behind you is NOT a good idea.

    Dokdo is Korean territory.

    The Korean flag waves over Dokdo not the Japanese flag.

    If Abe and his right winged cronies don't like it, they should do something about it otherwise -- QUIT YOUR WHINING!

    Sony used to be the premium brand in electronics during the 80's through the mid 90's now only to be replaced by brands like Samsung, LG and Apple.

    WOW How the mighty has fallen!

    China's robust posture against Japan and visa versa (Japan to China) is nothing more than a political ploy to win points from the populace and boost up nationalism. The economies are both Japan and China are to intertwined and interdependent to risk any REAL military conflict.

    In light of loosing face, I fear the Chinese gov't will respond in an aggressive manner the next time.

    I'm American - personally, I think it was a stupid move by the Obama administration. Most Americans suffer from war fatigue. After the debacle in Iraq, the standard for committing US soldiers in an armed conflict is high. The American public WILL NOT support an armed conflict against China over a piece of rock in the middle of the sea because, frankly, the general American public doesn't care who retains ownership of the Senkakus. America is best served by acting as a peaceful mediator in this war of words between the two of our largest creditors and trading partners - NOT by ratcheting up the tension in the East Asian region.

    The last time I checked the Korean flag is (literally) waving over Dokdo not the Japanese flag.

    If you don't like it do something about it - otherwise stop complaining and move on.

    ABE IS ALL TALK!

    We all know that he wouldn't dare to militarily provoke the Chinese without the blessing of the Americans. The last thing that the Americans want is a military conflict / instability between her two largest trading partners and bond purchasers.

    Abe is just trying to build up his bona fides with the nationalists.

    Abe government should focus on cleaning up Fukushima and build up Japan's soft power.

    In the US, Toyota's reputation for quality USED TO be inflatable. Today, it's just no longer the case.

    For "Abe nonmics" to work, inflation must coincide with increase in wages and and hiring.

    Otherwise the middleclass is just getting sqeezed from higher energy prices while the rich get richer from a higher stock market mainly thru the weak yen and creative accounting.

    Military and arms build up between Japan and China will not bode well for the NE Asian region. The rhetoric and paranoia between the two countries is a bit much. I fear a small incident between and China and Japan might cause the tinder box to be lit thus causing an uncontrollable situation in NE Asian.
