Japan for too long has been tied to Security and Nuclear Umbrella of USA. Now that USA is decline power and cannot stand upto rising china, it wants its share of pound of flesh. Japan had a lead in India in every field but it never shared with Indians. But South Koreans entered and occupied that space by sharing while Japan was thinking about how it was called a white race by the racist south africa. Now it has to wake upto reality that USA will not fight the battles with China.It has to build for its own security as well as look after its future in food security and economic well being.

This article shows why Japan is lagging behind in the world of business.Its arrogance.I think Chinese have German system but soon they will copy it to export to third world.Hatayoma proposed the bullet train to Indians during his recent visit.But Indian tracks are ancient as well as its signal system.It just cannnot afford to relay the whole track but Japan has the bullet train. It is here Japan has to show innovation.otherwise it can sell in Korea,Taiwan or vietnam

Why Obama is NOT comfortable with Karzai while Bush was. whether it is karzai or Abdullah2 , both have to be corrupt as is Zardari or any other leader whether in democrasy or dictatorship. But Obama should not have cancelled the first round without doing his homework with abdullah and Karzai and this shows the failure of US foreign policy establishment.

This is not about Okinawa base.It is about entire US/Japan security relationship.Is Japan ready to take on resurgent China? Can it do it without Nukes anD cyberwarfare capability? All these years Japan was hiding under Hiroshima and nagasaki.Today it has to face facts with resurgent China doesnot want to compromise on territory at Spratleys,Vietnamese Border and ofcourse Indo/China border.
China wants to take over from erstwhile Soviet union but with a coterie ruling the 1 billion nation. Japan must face FACTS.

As the only country which faced Nuclear attack (Twice), it should ponder the genuine concerns of North Korea for its safety. It is surrounded by NUCLEAR ARMED CHINA which is expanding its nuclear arsenal quitely in the guise of peaceful rise of China while actually it taught weak India a military lesson for its weakness and tried to teach lesson to battle hardened Vietnam and got lesson from General Giap.India was threatned by nuclear armed enterprise when it was holding 10 million refugees from East pakistan.Japan must think how it feels when North korea tests its missliles over its territory even with US umbrella.When that umbrella goes, north korea will have its nukes in caves while China will have open nukes being P5 memeber.Japan may be comfortable with PEACEFUL RISE OF CHINA. Not India,Vietnam,NorthKorea etc
