    The winds are blowing favorably for Japan right now. Do you really want to needlessly turn the negative attention back on yourself??

    "But VIETNAM in no push over, just ask any US Marines that fought there and the USA was only the latest foreign invader"

    Elbuda Mexicano:

    Not to rewrite history or anything, but they U.S. never invaded Vietnam. What started out as sending military advisors to their South Vietnamese allies, turned into a gradual build up of forces there. China was actually the last foreign invader into Vietnam when they sent 80,000 PLA troops across their border with Vietnam in the late '70s.

    @gokaiwomanaku:

    China does have the largest military in terms of manpower and equipment. The U.S. is the second or third largest. The fact is that the U.S. spends more on defense than the next 12-15 countries combined. So China does have the largest military. The U.S. b as the largest military budget.

    @MGigante & homeland:

    I totally agree with both of you that Obama was very weak in his response to Russia. For awhile now, Putin has been putting Obama in a clown suit. As for the U.S. going to war with China, IMO I personally think that the U.S. would. It's hard to imagine China trying to war/fight with Japan without spilling American blood. With regards to Ukraine, the NATO charter is "An attack on one of us, is an attack on all of us". I don't think Ukraine falls under that same protection, or was even offered it. Although I could be wrong.

    @Yuki Nomose:

    Since when did Ukraine become an ally of the U.S., either formal as in a NATO member or otherwise?

    "Maybe the USA can learn something from our Filipino amigos?? Mabuhay"

    @Elbuda Mexicano:

    One of the main purposes of using drones for the American military is to have 0 American military deaths and 0 American military casualties. The Filipino army had 1 death and 12 casualties. Exactly what is the American military to learn from them?

    "“Japan’s assertions are too unreasonable and illogical "

    Aren't the two words "unreasonable and illogical" the two words that best describe North Korea?

    "I read the article thank you, and btw, this isn't what Japan was thinking about when they talked about name recognition. A rookie female, no more no less, the Japanese will treat her will all due respect to her face, and then be condescending as hell behind her back.

    It's obvious from this choice that Obama does not find Japan to be a high priority. Even at a time when the US is talking about (and doing it) shifting it's forces towards a more Pacific footing, the territorial disputes that Japan has with China and Korea, with Japan expecting the US to back them up. But with an ambassador that has no experience and is just a "name"?

    Not a smart move in my opinion."

    Who would you have liked for him to choose? Anyone in particular?

    "I question Obama's mindset here. Ok great a female ambassador for a male dominated society, but one with no foreign relations experience? Particularly at a time when Japan is pushing forward with TPP and other security issues?"

    @Yubaru:

    As it stated in the article, Japan took it as a slight with the appointment of the last ambassador, because of the lack of name recognition and prestige. No name within politics or the Democratic party gets much bigger and better than "Kennedy" And as paulinusa commented previously, she will have a staff and caretakers..

    "I find all of this a bit odd when it was China that tried to invade Japan, twice and seriously came within one storm of succeeding."

    @CrisGerSan:

    I think you're confusing China with The Mongols (Mongolia). Mongolia is hardly a friend of China.

    "Chinese army chief of general staff General Fang Fenghui earlier said the joint drills were “not targeting any third party”, according to the official Chinese Xinhua news agency."

    Sure they're not.

    The choice is pretty simple. If you don't want to run the risk of being killed in a drone strike, then don't consort with, or become a terrorist.
