    and also several times a year at Yasukuni. What gives with that?

    Do I see a solution here? If China can celebrate every September 3rd like it's "1999", will China stop whining about Yasukuni?

    In this regard, China is far more important for S.Korea, to recruit their help vis a vie putting a cap on North Korea, while there is absolutely nothing to gain by having a meeting with Japan

    I, wholeheartedly agree. I believe South Korea should dispense the formalities and agree to unite the whole Korean Peninsula under China. This time, let's not limit to a tributary status but an actual province of China. Old habits, especially the ones that lasted two thousands years is hard to break. Pak is absolutely doing the right thing for people of Korea.

    I didn't make any predictions, merely stating the facts

    That's what I'm stating. Your 'facts' about Pak not attending the military parade proved false.

    For instance, they are not reporting on the serious epidemic in Japan that has currently killed 76 people.

    What epidemic is this specifically? Is this one of those Urinra mansei articles to cover up the utter failure of the Korea in regards to MERS?

    There was no discussion of a three way meeting with Japan, as PGH's government spokesman has denied the Japanese media reports. Kyodo News and Japanese media are reporting on their wishful thinking. There was no discussion of Japan in the two country meeting, as South Korea's main goal is to isolate North Korea by turning China away from North Korea.

    Very good news. I hope this time your prediction is right for you predicted Ms. Takagi would not attend the military parade.

    And they say that Japan is a democracy?

    It is. But this is a bill. This isn't up for referendum. If all bills are subject to those criteria, we wouldn't need legislators.

    Police the world over have a habit of manipulating protest numbers according to however it might benefit them, or their paymasters.

    Then you need to explain how this 'under reporting' or 'over reporting' or any number manipulation benefits MPD and their paymasters which is Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

    I've simply provided a likelihood. Face it, you've done nothing to disprove it.

    Can't disprove something when you haven't proved anything. Sorry. Your 'likelihood' theory is simply shows your bias.

    You said it - they get a budget. And for the year they have that budget they have to live within it.

    Nope. That's not the performance I'm talking about.

    Face it. You've provided absolutely nothing to prove your conspiracy theory between the METROPOLITAN Police Department and the current Abe Cabinet.

    And to add, it's not only the NHK that's reporting the number by METROPOLITAN Police so let's dispense the BS there shall we?

    Not likely. They have to live within the budget they have for a given year.

    Not the police department. Not the Fire department, either. These divisions get their allocated budget based on performance.

    My two points still stand. The police most likely underestimated. The organizers most likely overestimated.

    No need to underestimate. You've provided nothing.

    Ideally it would be that way. But Japan is all about letting things slide if it means saving money.

    ???

    Based on the budget proposals requested by each divisions of both central and Municipal governments, they want every excuse in the book to INCREASE it, PERIOD!!

    And? And theoretically there is no vested interest in NHK pushing the party line, yet it's an open 'secret' that they do.

    ????

    First and foremost, I remember I capitalized "MUNICIPAL" which apparently flew right past you. In addition, in regards to NHK, do you recall them broadcasting the "Comfort Women" mock trial in which the panel judges found them guilty??

    already gave two reasons. You just don't like them because it goes against your bias.

    Let's review.

    The police want to under-exaggerate so they don't have to provide as much resources, costing more money

    The police, first and foremost, don't want to be criticized for being understaffed when $hit hits the fan.

    There is likely pressure from the government on the police as well to estimate the numbers as low as possible.

    Again, no vested interest by the METROPOLITAN Police Department to underestimate nor overestimate.

    Keep up the pressure guys

    Except that it was only 30K and nowhere to be seen on weekdays. Remind these folks to show up when the lawmakers are there. Better yet, show up in the polls.

    @nigelboy "Since then? August9, 1945? Lol" Soviets in 3 weeks defeated all Japanese forces in northern China, Sakhalin island, Kuril chain and Northern part of Korean peninsula. You should realize that fighting 1 000 000 men IJA is a bit harder task than storming Iwo Jima, Okinawa or bombing women and children in Japanese cities and towns.

    Seriously. You're essentially "bragging" how much Soviets were able to LOOT.

    In the transcript of the interview, published online by the Russian presidential office on Tuesday, Putin said that China and Russia were “allies” in the fight against Nazism and Japanese militarism.

    Since when? August 9,1945?? Lol

    Basically they are saying that the communist party and the union is bloating the numbers by announcing the full amount in number that they have listed and not the number that actually showed up.

    Desparate time calls for desparate measures.

    As some have alluded to Ban is Korean first so it's no brainer that his actions are earmarked for his post U.N. career.

    As Ossan briefly mentions, a head of the U.N. which at this stage has a 'cease fire' agreement with Korea People's Army (current North Korea) and People's Volunteer Army (current PLA) and yet he attends this 'show off" parade of the PLA.

    Why so much anger, after so much time? It’s complicated.

    The current population of Japan, in general, no longer care that the Chinese government uses such tactics to 'deflect' and 'unite' the population nor do they care about the 'enlightened' Chinese tourists who experienced Japan.

    However, this is the one issue I think Abe has right. A country should have its own military, be able to defend its overseas assets and egage in war if necessary.

    The operative phrase there is 'if necessary'.

    Both the proponents and the opposition of this bill do not want to go to war. At one end, they want to have necessary deterrents to avoid war while the other simply believes that pledging 'peace' would prevent it.
