    God forbid too many people have the right to vote - that sounds like democracy.... oh hang on, isn't the US supposed to be the shining light of liberal democracy???.... I guess those were the days before US 'democracy' simply became a front for corporate interests....

    a large percentage of Japanese farmers are elderly and the younger generation isn't interested in getting it's hands dirty (literally)... over the next 20 years there will be far less people on the land in Japan meaning a drop in domestic output requiring an increase in imported goods to fill the gap. The phasing in of the increase in Australian products (15 to 18 years) is timed for this demographic shift. Japan has simply realised it will miss out to China's surging demand for imported beef if they don't get in now to cover themselves for the future....

    Daini also admitted he was shocked after a racist “Japanese only” banner targeting foreign fans was unfurled at Urawa Red Diamonds’ Saitama Stadium. “Japanese soccer and the J-League are known for being a safe environment with lots of women and children attending games, so this has created a dangerous image and lowered the prestige of the game in Japan.”

    He appears to be more concerned about the games image rather than the racism that underlies such banners...

    4000 in only 4 days.....Wow - and all Australians do is moan about the piddling few thousand per year that come to their shores.....

    amusing to watch Obama try to pin the 'standards of international law' rap on Putin when the US continually ignores the same laws when it suits....

    Murayama says 1995 sex slavery apology review not in Japan's interest

    He's right - it's not in Japan's interest... it is only in Abe and his revisionist mates interests...

    In Australia winning is considered essential as Australians are "entitled" to their sporting success.... without this success the ongoing bubble of self congratulations they live in would be punctured requiring focus to be shifted to more important areas of life.... it's a rather sad state of affairs actually - media confected "enthusiasm" for sporting events that have little meaning....

    Posted in: Why do Olympic athletes and other sportsmen and sportswomen come under so much pressure from their country's media and politicians to succeed? Is winning that important to the national mood?

    Now let's hope for two things. One, that Abe doesn't start baiting China and instead can start being diplomatic. And second, that China doesn't feel backed into a corner and start something in order to not be seen as losing face.

    Unfortunately that's been Abe's whole game.... once the US committed openly to Japan, Abe could easily ramp up the China baiting knowing that regardless of what he does, the US will back him.... Japan will never be the economic force it was 20 years ago and Abe and his mates want to nobble China before Japan becomes totally irrelevant in Asia... Abe only needs a confected military skirmish and then to sit back and watch the US whack China

    That's why China doesn't bother justifying its aggression. China simply ignores international law when it doesn't support their aggression. It's all rather simple. No show at the UN International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea = China's claim is bogus.

    Substitute the words "China" with USA in this comment and there is little difference in the result....

    ABC is using Australians' tax payer money and betrayed Australian peoples and nation. ABC is controlling by left wing socialist and Green group. ABC has employed leftist journo only.

    Absolute rubbish... many of the ABC's board of directors were actually appointed by the Liberal Party and it's staff have frequently exposed both good and bad news on both the left and right side of politics... Abbott is just annoyed because the ABC have questioned the holy infallibility of the navy and defence forces over the recent handling of the refugee boats... Abbott simply wants cheerleaders praising his every move which is the job of the spineless Murdoch press...

    How about visiting China - the country that has the most relevance to Japan at the moment Mr. Abe ?? That requires a little more effort than just circling the globe and pouting about China's "bullying"....
