    Not a sound of complaint?

    sfjp330,

    Yep. Not a single complaint until the last 1985 visit by Nakasone. Please provide evidence of this China protest from April 21, 1979- April 22, 1985 encompassing 20 visits by Japanese PM's.

    And again, stop copy/pasting other people's work and passing it off as your own.

    yeah you practically ignore this

    No I didn't. It deals with PM's visit being construed as "unconstituttional". Furthermore, this is strictly a domestic matter.

    You added nothing.

    as my own explanation is Nakasone actions sure alarmed the CPC about Japan gov intentions

    Except for the inconvenient fact that predecessors have also visited on an "official" basis.

    http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%B2%A9%E6%89%8B%E7%9C%8C%E9%9D%96%E5%9B%BD%E7%A5%9E%E7%A4%BE%E8%A8%B4%E8%A8%9F

    Let's not forget another inconvenient fact that CPC only went against PM's visits. Now she has changed her goal post once again, and now she is against common "lawmakers".

    There is no "alarm" by the CPC about Japanese government intentions. It's simply a card used by them to detract attention away from their own past misconducts and failures in their history. Frankly, it's over leveraged so I suggest they come up with something else.

    It looks like the seized vessel was under an exclusive transport contract with Baoshan Steel Co. for 20 years with 17 years remaining in the contract. According to the spokesman for the said company, he hopes that Mitsui O.S.K. will continue the operations and fears the negative impact domestically as well.

    these are two answers you are asking for,

    They're not. The frist paragraph is purely a "domestic" matter which touches on the unconstitutionality. Funny how these people that files these lawsuits don't do a thing when lawmakers visit Ise Jingu or Meiji, or any other Shinto rituals. The second part has been done by prior PM's and bowed and clapped their hands before the "spirits of all war dead".

    Japan's debt is growing ever more quickly, and has nearly reached the point of equalling the amount of cash assets held by the domestic banks. Once it surpasses this level, it is less and less likely that the debt will remain sustainable. How can you possibly expect to repay a debt when said debt is greater than all of the cash assets your country possesses?

    That's not what is going on for if the above is true, Japan wouldn't be the largest net creditor in the world for 20+ years.

    "Japan's debt" is "Japanese government debt" which is in turn "Japanese peoples' asset". It's simply a net sum zero game on Japan's total balance sheet which is net positive as I stated previously. The bond issuance is simply to finance social payments to Japanese citizens who in turn deposit in the banks who then in turn buy bonds rather than invest or make loans more so due to lack of spending by these Japanese citizens. This is the deflationary spiral that Japan is up against.

    Let's just find another home for the bones of the 14 war criminals, please. The souls are long gone anyway...

    Their are no bones or ashes in Yasukuni.

    The co-mingled ashes of the 7 executed are housed here.

    http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%AE%89%E5%9B%BD%E4%B8%83%E5%A3%AB%E5%BB%9F

    The other 7, who died during the incarceration, their ashes are housed in their own family grave.

    Maybe. If the Japanese don't repent on their past wrongs, there is a strong possibility of repeating them. If they repeat them, you can guarantee that it will affect the day to day lives of the Chinese. And I, living in Japan, will be affected by that as well.

    Two totally off the wall "if" scenario equating a false premise of "going to Yasukuni"="don't repent on their past wrongs".

    Close to 70 visits by Japanese Prime Ministers after 1945 and not a single foreign civilian died at the hands of the JSDF for nearly 70 years. Sigh.

    well even the Emperor wish not to be involved in this mess.

    And as usual, your wiki entry does not offer a reason for Emperor's decision for it's completely different from the CCP's "reasons".

    But let's go further. The enshrinement of Class A became public knowledge in 1979 and there have been total of 21 visits by Japanese Prime Ministers and not a sound of complaint from the Chinese counterparts. Therefore, this is classic case of Chinese government making an issue out of "internal affairs" which they agreed not to "interfere".

    They most definitely have the right to do it

    1. The Government of Japan and the Government of the People's Republic of China agree to establish relations of perpetual peace and friendship between the two countries on the basis of the principles of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit and peaceful co-existence.

    All true but you forgot to mention cutting people off, obstructing traffic so people can back into their driveway off of a main road, braking and then signalling etc. Apparently low accident numbers here but...I can`t believe how.

    Yeah. Imagine that. Millions of cars and drivers being "lucky" 24 hours a day, 365 days a year throughout Japan. I'm sure one of these days, their "luck" will run out and will see a big jump in the numbers,(sarcasm)

    As law-abiding as people from most other countries.

    I do recall a certain state when they enacted a "no texting while driving" law, the accidents increased sharply. So no. I beg to differ.

    Further, it looks like the Chinese regime may start playing hardball with Japan, at least from trade side. The irony is that few days ago, Abe told the press that China is a vital economic partner of Japan amid territorial disputes. Now we see the Chinese side seems showing no interest to buying what Abe sells. On the contrary, Chinese court ordered an unprecedented seizure of Japanese company’s property to show its willingness to take on Japanese corporations which are doing business with China and had connections to World War II.

    More reason to divest in this country. I recall a few years ago when China halted exports of rare earths in retaliation to the Senkaku issue and many posters were proclaiming death to the Japanese manufacturers unless the Japanese government caved in. We all know how that turned out. Businesses do adjust and prosper especially the Zaibatsu groups.

    This is a civil case. Although its quite clear that its politically motivated but that's how laws can be sometimes, every nation does that.

    No. So far, it's been China and now soon to be Korea. (What a surprise! Not!) U.S. courts have rejected similar claims on the basis on international treaty.

    Like clockwork, sfjp330 managed to bring Germany into the discussion where Germany lacks such bilateral treaties among nations. Therefore, there are still civil litigation among persons and companies where even German nationals can also claim assets in former occupied territory.

    Yeah this represent the Chinese courts are inefficient. If it were other courts such as European and US, the defendant already settled the debt long ago, not to delay until now just to spread some political message

    Chinese courts are inefficient for the simple reason that they fail to adhere to the international treaty which courts and Europe and U.S. have adhered to. Thank you for pointint them out.

    There is a point where simple analogies don't work. I suggest that a lawsuit contesting a contract between two companies that no longer exist brought on 80-plus years after the fact by the grandchild of an owner of the original company with no apparent legal claim to the damages suffered might be one of those times.

    On top of that, these types of "claims" were also rejected by the Chinese courts for 40 years until recently for the same reason I stated above.

    The sudden roundabout face by the Chinese courts (organ under the umbrella of CCP) is another political issue that they want to create and as a result, it will be the second round of confiscation by the Chinese government. As a result, I can see many Japanese firms divesting from China for these added risks on top of the mass riots simply makes it not worthwhile anymore.

    That logic doesn't wash. If I leave my home and fail to pay taxes and duties on it, and it is then subsequently sold off by the city hall and occupied by a new owner then that's my bad, and I can't very well go to the new owner and demand its return.

    The logic does wash for the treaty (namely the Treaty of Peace San Francisco) where Japanese and her nationals were ordered to abandon all overseas assets where according to GHQ report, the sum exceed $30 billion at that time (1945) This isn't about "leaving my home" to avoid paying taxes.

    Frungy,

    With all due respect, that was what the treaty is for so that each government takes care of it's own peoples whatever the damages and compensation that they incurred during that time. If the Chinese government position claim is that they are indeed "individual" and separate from the "state" claims, the Japanese individuals and companies now have the right to seek retrieval and payment of assets they left behind in China.

    The purpose and the spirit of the treaty is to eliminate such endless cross border lawsuits thereby individuals/businesses can invest and grow without the threat of these litigations.

    Except that they were not fascist militarists.

    They were militarists nonetheless.
