    Saketown, what a childish comment from you. One-sided stories about the American troops being killed? Counting the dead bodies from both sides and see the numbers before you made such comment, besides the US was invading Korea and Vietnam not the other way around. An apology is required when gross atrocities were committed by the invader such as Japan. China has forgiven Japan and other foreign invaders but it just cannot forget especially when the invader keeps denying and white-washing the past. The only concern that China has is Japan has not learned from the past and will keep repeating the history.

    nigelboy, no matter how China did it right there seems to be an implication of something else. This reminds me of a story about a blind man groping an elephant and trying to guess what it is.

    OssanAmerica, last time I heard North Korea sided with South Korea on the territorial disputes with Japan. Most of the people considering the neighboring countries of Japan to be South Korea, North Korea, Russia and China. Have Japan and Russia concluded their peace treaty? Can Japan get near those disputed islands without being shot at? According to you China has 17 neighboring countries that is quite a big numbers don’t you think? For 70 years after the War Japan still has the same number of territorial disputes that it started off with, but look at China how many disputes that China has resolved, quite a few right? Do you see my point?

    As expected, bashing the neighbors in an attempt to fool the people that “the changes are crucial to counter security concerns in the region,” this is very wicked and low. It has to be Japan which raises the security concerns.

    Japan is the only country in the world that has disputes with all of its neighbors while considering China which has so many neighbors is able to solve most of the territorial disputes peacefully. Recently, the buzz words seem to be “changing the status quo by force or coercion;” but have you noticed that China is only responding to someone else’ changing status quo. Look at Japan nationalized the islands while kept saying there is no dispute, China definitely has the right to respond in some way otherwise “the new status quo” would be the norm. China is even late in protecting its own territories and expanding their tiny reclaimed islands, while other countries have occupied the major chunk of the disputed islands building all kinds of facilities and structures on them while nobody saying a word. When China did it, it becomes an attempt to change the status quo, or it is coercion. Don’t you find that ridiculous? Those countries are just like vultures attacking China when it was weak and refusing to leave.

    “Beijing’s sky-rocketing military budget,” why do we have to be concerned? China is a huge country which suffered greatly from foreign invasion and intrusion, so it has the right to try to protect itself. China doesn’t even have any military bases outside the country; this point alone shows that China is far from being expansionist or colonialist. Is it because of “opaqueness” that the US and Japan have to conduct routine surveillance over China? But they call it “freedom of navigation,” one should wonder what would happen if China starts to conduct routine surveillance close to the US shores. Japan is building itself to be the number one target by bad-mouthing, bashing, and poking at the neighbours. In the near future when Japan is attacked Abe will be the first to slyly say “I told you so.”

    Let’s have a party and burn the Constitution; it’s useless anyway. A Salute to Abe, he’s made it happened. Here are some of the benefits of this change: some Japanese soldiers got to die with honour along with their American brothers, well-paid military career with free foods and travel, effective population reduction, new image of howling Japan after 70 years of peace, upholding undemocratic one party ruled Japan, a chance to remain a world class bully, possible expansion of Yasukuni Shrine, Tokyo a ground zero for nuclear arms race, crying Japanese child’s picture captured by National Geographic, Abe remembered in history as father of destruction, and helping the US achieving its ”pivot to Asia” agenda to make Asia a little better than the Middle East.

    Doomsayers are much more active these days. Expecting Chinese stock market crash is unlikely. Chinese stocks had increased 160% since last year so why are we concerned about a drop of 30%? What the Chinese government concerned about is panic selling that will create instability in the market. The market will not crash as long as the government is in control so try not to think like it is in the free market economy. Forget about the fundamentals for now, it doesn’t work in this case, better to watch what the government is doing or trying to do. So when the Chinese government says the stock will go up, it will go up. China is in the process of funnelling more money to the middle-income earners through the stock markets so expecting more millionaires to be created every day. When people have more money they will spend more so in turn the economy will get better and better. Manufacturing sector will benefit as the value of Yuen is lower so the export will improve. So, don’t expect a rich and controlled economy like China to implode or explode any time soon.

    Funny though the breach happened in December, discovered in April, took over a month to come forward and smear China and even without any solid proof. Here is concerted effort to bully China.

    Paranoid – a borderline schizophrenia, “In February, U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said a steady stream of low-level cyber-attacks posed the most likely danger to the United States, rather than a potential digital armageddon.”

    Blame – China is always the target, when its own security is not up to par, put the blame on someone else, “The Washington Post and other US media cited government officials as saying that Chinese hackers were behind the breach.”

    Fear – “Fire sale” in Die Hard, must be too much movies, “There is growing concern that criminals, terror groups or spy agencies could target critical infrastructure such as power grids or air traffic control systems.”

    Propaganda - smearing China first even when there is no proof, “The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are said to be leading the investigation. The FBI in a statement said it will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace.”

    Insecurity – Chinese hackers are “very good,” must be better than the Americans, Obama has ranked China and Russia’s cyber-attack capabilities as “very good”, Iran’s as “good,” and North Korea’s as not “particularly good.”

    Hypocrite – Snowden is watching, “The U.S. government admitted hackers accessed the personal data of at least four million current and former federal employees, in a vast cyber-attack suspected to have originated in China.”

    Threat – Story of “WMD in Iraq” comes to mind, “Admiral Michael Rogers, who heads the National Security Agency and US Cyber Command, has said that future attacks could prompt a response with conventional weapons.”

    Deceit – the NSA has got more powers, “The National Security Agency has reportedly been given wider powers to spy on Internet traffic in search of computer hacking by foreign governments or others.”

    Conflicting and confusing remarks, and lies:

    “Japan can no longer shy away from its responsibility to help safeguard regional stability,” is it Japan’s responsibility to self-elected to be second in command after the US?

    Japan “must step out from under the shade of the security umbrella provided by the United States.” Or, is it because of the US order that has to be followed?

    “We live in an era when no country can any longer protect itself alone,” heck, your neighbor does it. If Japan continues its peaceful path, it will never be alone.

    “In the past two years, Japanese nationals have fallen victim to terrorism in Algeria, Syria and Tunisia;” should we be wondering why? Is the aid money going into the right places? Have we seen Chinese nationals got beheaded?

    “Japan is within range of hundreds of North Korea’s ballistic missiles,” more of the reasons to stay clear of the US and be neutral.

    “the number of (fighter jet) scrambles has risen seven-fold in a decade,” hey, the majority of the increase is in the last couple of years to be exact and we all know why.

    “The conventional principle that the military shall not be deployed overseas will stay. They will not take part in conflicts like the Gulf War or Iraq War in the future. I want to make that clear,” what conventional principle according to whom? How do you say no to your master? Even now Japan is helping its master behind the scene. So they think the terrorists are stupid and not figuring that out.

    “Not a single Japanese person wants to see a war,” mark these words, there are a whole bunch of Japanese people who want to see a war otherwise they wouldn’t be going to Yasukuni Shrine.

    Here it is folks, “Japan can defend allies in situations where there is a clear risk that Japan’s existence is threatened and its people’s rights…are compromised through an attack on a country which has a close relationship with Japan,” that is why a war is inevitable. Peaceful Japan is becoming a history and maybe we should forget about it.

    OssanAmerica, “The US has been pushing for this since 1950.” That is the main reason Japan should not to go backwards. Why would you listen to the country that is always at war if you have no intention of getting into a war yourself, right? Abe administration has every intention to change the peaceful Japan into an atrocious second-fiddle nation. Abe cannot return Japan to the second-largest economy so why not make it to be one of those powerful nations. You said, “We have only Communist China to thank for bringing Japan to it's senses and accomplishing what we could not for 65 years,” then tell me an incidence that China started in provoking Japan. Every action that China made has always been in response to Japan’s provocation.

    “No you won't. In the old days Japa was a fascist Empire with soldiers dying for the Emperor, Today the Emperor is merely a symbol, and the SDFiscobtrainted by the constitution,.” Do you want to bet that after Abe got his way on the Constitution change, the Emperor will be uplifted and become more prominent. Yes, young Japanese soldiers will die for the nation that used to be peaceful.

    You said, “Only China is on a declared territorial expansion agenda,” now think carefully about the following. All the territorial disputes with China have been in existence for many decades already, but in the last couple of years right after the US declared “Pivot to Asia” that China has been provoked consistently by Japan and the Philippines. Which country nationalized the disputed islands in order to change the status quo? Which country denied and lied about the existence of the agreement to shelve the islands issue that both leaders agreed on several decades ago, but now the truth came out from Britain that the agreement did exist? Which country’s leader went around the world, bad-mouthed China, and created “China Threat”? Which country created the ADIZ many decades ago practically right up to China’s door steps and when China did the same it cried foul? Which country sent out fighter jets to go after Chinese propeller plane? Which country whitewashes its own atrocities during WWII and its leader even dared to say that “aggression” is not defined? Which country leader and his gangs go to worship the criminals in official capacity offending the neighbors? Which country gave away free gifts and grants to the Philippines to make it so that it’s not alone in this provocation? So, who is really the wolf in the sheep’s clothing? The answer is Japan.

    You do know why I mentioned Russia, N.Korea, and S.Korea. Those countries all have territorial disputes with Japan and all of them are in good side with China. Japan did impose sanctions against Russia and they remember. N.Korea and S.Korea both have something to grind with Japan. The most fear is once Japan becomes a “normal” country again it will try to show off its strength so it is a matter of picking a country to practice its might. Russia and China are becoming pretty close these days, theories that this may be temporary or both dislike each other seem to be out of the windows, the US will have a choice of going against both China and Russia or cozying up with either China or Russia. You know the answer to that. In any event, the US will think twice before trying to flex its muscle in Asia again. Pitiful Japan is being used to create chaos in Asia and the Japanese people are too naïve or too passive to see it.

    CrazyJoe, better to thank Abe for his contribution, in the near future you will see young Japanese soldiers die patriotically in a pathetic war just like the old days. There is a very slim possibility that China would attack Japan, but other neighbors might, the following countries come to mind: Russia, N.Korea, and S.Korea. And, you may be right “That is exactly what Beijing wants,” though other country can do the dirty job for her.

    “The United States warned on Thursday that China’s effort to expand its territory in the South China Sea by building on disputed islands was a threat to regional stability.” Who in the US would want to warn China? “U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter gently chided China on Friday for its approach to territorial disputes in the South China Sea,” according to ABC News.

    In response, “Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that no matter what anyone said or did, it would not change the facts of China's sovereignty or its determination to defend its territory. Other South China Sea claimants have done the same over the years. ‘We urge the U.S. sides to speak and act with caution, to strictly abide by their promises not to take a position on the relevant territorial ownership issue, and do more to benefit regional peace and stability and not the opposite,’ she said.” Now this may be a warning for the US to butt out.

    It means China is playing this 'sincerity' game. Rather pathetic considering they're pretending to victims while 'showing off' their Little Emperor forces. Do people in China still believe that it was the "Resistance" that prevailed in China? Lol.

    It means you didn't know what you are talking about, you didn't even know that Japan got the invitation from China and kept denying everything. Same as Abe who tries to deny, whitewash, down-grade the atrocities that the whole world has sided with China. And, yes, if you ask any Chinese you will have the same answer that the CCP prevailed in China and now even prevail economically over the whole world. Accept it because denying it will get you nowhere except depression that Japanese seem to suffer a lot.

    nigelboy, keep denying it. What does the following statement mean?

    “Japan’s prime minister is set to rebuff a prckly** invitation** to a Chinese military parade, as the former World War II enemies jockey over the telling of their shared history.”

    Here is what insincerity is: “The Japanese side is keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious distress and damage that Japan caused to the Chinese people through its aggression against China during a certain period in the past and expressed deep remorse for this, Statement by former Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama "

    “According to the summary of the panel's second round debate on historical issues, the 16-member panel quibbled about "whether it is appropriate to determine that the war was an act of aggression based on present values", with the majority insisting that "Japan should not be the only one to blame as aggression was also conducted by the Allied Forces" and the word "aggression" should not be used in Abe's statement.”

    Where is consistency? Where is sincerity? How can we trust the Japanese leader?

    nigelboy, getting angry will not help when it is the truth. Keep denying it will not help. China has always been consistent in what they say and do, but I can't say the same for Japan.

    Nigelboy, “on March 25th, your beloved FM response was neither confirmation or denial which begs the question if such invitation actually exist.”

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga “declined to comment on whether Abe would attend the Chinese parade.” “We have told them our country’s way of thinking regarding such an official ceremony,” he said. From this answer It clearly shows that Japan has been invited and that Abe will not be attending.

    1978 was a long time ago, besides Japanese leaders couldn’t even remember that they did agree with China to put the island issue aside for the next generation to solve, so we can’t really blame China for not able to forget about the atrocities either. My point is that not only that the whole country of Chinese people will be watching the ceremony but the whole world too. A sincere apology and a commitment to follow through at this point will definitely put the issue to rest. It is a win-win for both. But I don’t think Abe will do it because it is against what he stands for. China knows it too. He always puts his political party’s and his own interest ahead of national interest. Why do you think Japan has been in the doldrums for so long? Good leaders make all the difference, but poor leaders get all the glory.
