You need a strong Japan, economically and militarily, if you you need it to help you resists China and Korean's upcoming invasion.

PRC's lapdog did not poo, but barked, at the enemies, not house guest, which makes you feel good, how come embarrassed?

A barking dog seldom biters. Another words, Great barkers are no biters. As long as UN and US continue their warnings and denunciations, N Korea knows it's ok to do anything. Sanctions? Big brother China will more than compensate for the loss

Welcome new tariff or nontariff barriers against China and Korea! Isn't Japan kind of too soft nowadays?

nigelboy, come on now, defending all those bloody nontarriff barriers and invent excuses for them will do Japan no good. They have been tried and tested and have been proved to lead only to the dead end of stagnation. Just like a person, clever manipulation of things usually end up no good.

Making key components for Boeing 787, a global business collaboration, is a good business model toward good direction--forget your grand NATIONAL AVIATION PRODUCTION STRATEGY, in that can't make your own airplane is a shame. (You don't even have decent airports for flying tests). Hope the lithium-ion battery setback does not hurt too much.

1980s, a Japanese guy visiting a Southeast Asian country told his native friend he needed to find a phone booth for some emergency call. The friend pulled out a cellphone from his pocket, , said use this. After the call, the Japanese guy declared to the group: Amazing! It's just like your are carrying a phone booth on your back wherever you go!! That's because when everybody was using the new wonder toy, Japanese government banned it's importation, waiting for its scientists to come up with it's own. That's how Japan isolated itself from others, instead of joining the global manufacturing or development wagon and let itself naturally fit into its share of role.

When my little sister and I fought over something, my mom and dad would say, "Stop fighting. Share it 50-50. And be friends." Seems even more reasonable now. (but what about Taiwan...")
When I go to your house and begin to fight with you, your parents say stop fighting, share 50 50, and be good friends. I say ok but how about my brother.

Not reported by JT but USA Japan Australia joint naval war game has just started, China has a lot of targets to aim at.
Moderator: We have a story on it.

What provocation next? Till "Japan hit first!", China won't stop trying. Guess what's been cooking.

Independent? You are a great schemer. China says its history book says the whole Okinawa belongs to China. Okinawa ---title holder of record of the shortest lived independent nation ever---one day, awarded by Guinness.

tmtmsnbFeb. 02, 2013 - 10:05PM JST
Why gave Okinawa back to Japan (US owned it because of unconditional surrender) when US needs it?

Just watched fragments of her images from YouTube. There are extremes: the hilarious kind you see above; the pensive, contemplative, with-a-trace-of-mysterious-shadow kind of her own self. You are excused to have commented lightly on her as you have seen only the above image; but if you have seen the profundity in her eyes as I have, if you have seen the enchanting beauty around her eyebrows when see goes "deep", then you will feel sorry.

@"There is not strong public support in Japan for changing the Constitution to allow a full-fledged military, something that Abe tried and failed to do four years ago."@
That's because the consensus then was that since USA is here guarding its own national interest, why spend big money building a full-fledged military of our own (sort of a free lunch). Time has changed: The threat gets more and more real, the USA thing gets hazier and hazier.

China will help Abe get his wish. During referendum it will send not 3, but 30 war ships to sail through Okinawa to help turn the tide for Abe. A Japan Ghost is always a must for ruling China.

Under present Japan Constitution and self defense capability, China invades and occupies Japan is not an impossibility. A united forces of China, N.Korea, and Taiwan (at present a de facto China colony) from three directions can finish the job within days.
tmtmsnbJan. 31, 2013 - 07:16PM JST
Congratulations Japan! Increased factory output numbers means growth in muscles, not fats; means industry starts ordering equipments, not retreating; means people in general and businessmen in particular have confidence in Abe, resulting in a strong leadership, a must for the country at present; and above all, it could mean the dawn of the next generation manufacturing process: ----humanized machine doing the jobs of millions of Chinese laborers.

"Speed, it probably was-just the info not given out because well, Japan Inc."
Japan Inc. prevents progress, (in case successfully covered up, BS Yuasa may lose chance of improvement) distort things, turn otherwise one of the best nations in the world into serious recession. Now the country is reaping what it saw. Next candidate? China Inc.

The problem is Japan doesn't really recognize this type of kidnapping as a crime.

Probably good for killing time with a miniature screen on an airplane, though.
