    As someone with a foot in both islands (dual national) this is nice development. Hopefully this establishes the relationship as a partnership or equals to move forward.

    As a republican Im impressed with the queens actions. An apology and objective review of the current state of relations from a british monarch has a lot of meaning.

    To see SF men at this dinner shows how much NI has moved forward. Hopefully this can continue.

    The American influence is, by and large, positive. It historical contribution to the world, likewise.

    With the Europeans remaining divided its going to be the USA which guarantees a better future world.

    There are problems with America, not least a general inability of its citizens to accept that America is anything but the best in all things, but its morals and compass are pointing in the right direction.

    It aint perfect, but none of the competitors come close.

    Very weird situation.

    It all seems a bit farcical (and tragic.) Convicted, acquitted then re-convicted?

    On the other hand, all you can do is trust Italian justice.

    ** The governments of both countries wouldn't need to put in too much effort to demonize the enemy, Jimizo, very pertinent point. Expanding on that, i think the difference is that the Chinese goventment has used and whipped up this feeling (through education and propaganda) whereas the Japanese animosity is largely a reaction to the anti-Japanese feeling that the Chinese govt has been encouraging.

    Could it be the case that the Chinese goverment takes things too far and the chinese people demand a strike on Japan whch the Chinese goverment couldnt get out of? It only an anecdote, but all the mainland chinese that i know and have ive spoken to about this would support military action in support of reclaiming the Senkakus.

    I think the world just needs to hope that China really is too integrated economically with Japan (and the rest of the world) and that this makes it impossible for military action.

    “The way the Japanese think about the East China Sea now is like how they thought about northeast China. They didn’t stop at the northeast, they kept heading south to Shanghai and even Southeast Asia,” Li said.

    Wow, the propaganda in China must be really good. Japan has done nothing to indicate it wants to expand. It just wants to maintain its control of the senkakus.

    China isnt so good at misdirection.

    I think they need to do more, in fact, these men and women sacrificed a lot for our freedoms and of course we have every right to go anywhere where there is an existential threat that could harm US citizens or interest and deal with it accordingly.

    So bass, does that work in reverse? Do other countries have every right to go into the USA in the event of an existential threat that could harm their citizens and deal with it accordingly?

    Movies like this are chest-thumping propaganda. They are good for a bit of escapism but the involvement of the US government (Defense Department) means the government sees the recruiting potential of these movies.

    The original idea of Santa was that he was white as he was a product of anglo-dutch-german imagination/myth.

    The modern santa can be whatever the local community identifies with. He is, after all, not real. Santa is for kids and if the local audience of kids is mostly black then make santa black. Let the myth develop with modern morality and ethics.

    This is encroaching on Russia's sphere of defense

    Zaldaus, there is no right to a 'sphere of defense', every country in the world, no matter how small, has the right to determine its own alliances. You and Russia need to get out of this cold war thinking. Eastern Europe states are no longer part of the russian empire.

    Maria - did you read the article?

    The old lady kept the seat from an equally (or more ?) needy person - a pregnant woman. This shows a complete lack of respect for the pregnant woman and unborn child.

    Respect and courtesy are not one way. If the elderly dont show respect to others in need, then its reasonable for articles like this to question the behaviour of the oldies.

    **Setting up an ADIZ is not aggressive, as US and Japan have their own already.

    Setting one up over territory reconised by the rest of the world as being administered by Japan combined with the threat of force for non compliance is aggressive.

    letsberealistic, both you and Smith are wrong.

    Japan is being calm and measured. Just wait until the Chinese send a plane towards the senkakus. The Japanese interceptors wont be phoning ahead to the Chinese to file flight plans.

    The Americans showed what a world leader is (This is no endorsement of American foreign policy) yesterday. Somebody had to do it to show the Chinese that their aggressive moves are wrong.

    iWorld , you are Chinese so will of course try to describe it as a non-issue because the Americans just handed you your sierra and all you can do is give your best grin.

    Setting up a ADIZ, including airspace over territory recognised by the rest of the world as being administered by Japan, with the threat to shoot down planes which dont comply is an aggressive move.

    Countries with ADIZ doesn't use force or send fighter gets to intercept all planes within its ADIZ. This is the same for China.

    Exactly, its setup to be able to try to claim some legitimacy when the Chinese airforce shoots down a Japanese plane after the Chinese escalate the senkaku issue even further.

    The whole world sees through it. China is a bully.

    A lot of China apologists (50 cent party?) saying its a non-issue.

    China decided to make this move and used the threat of force to back it. Its in the wrong. The whole world is agreeing that China made a wrong move.

    Pretending it has little or no import is disingenuous China just escalated a diplomatic issue into a possible war.

    This has meaning and China needs to realise its in the wrong and step back. Well done USA for sending in the planes and others, such as Australia, for pointing out that this bellicose reaction in unwarranted.

    Good on the Yankees. Standing firm with Japan. A show of support for a long time partner.

    China needs to learn that such unilateral moves arent acceptable. By unacceptable, I mean backed up by threat of force - which is what the Chinese ADIZ is.

    On a lighter note - only the American military could come up with the buzz lightyear-ish “Coral Lightning Global Power Training Sortie.”
