I agree that Abe is in serious political trouble but that doesn't mean he's wrong. The North Koreans and the Chinese are an ever greater threat and Japan needs to up its game in the air and at sea. We need THAAD and we need the ability to counter China's plans for areal denial in the South and East China Seas. That takes funding.
I'm a liberal Democrat but I'm sorry, the threat is real and we can't wish it away. It's time to up Japan's capabilities asap.

Even if these products were irradiated they'd still be safer than anything produced in China.

They should shut down all those DPRK front companies doing foreign currency acquisitions for the regime. Then Kim would pay attention.

There are two ways to fix this. One is legal. Every reported instance of a manager telling an employee to report less OT than worked results in a million yen fine (with an escalator clause for repeat offenders) and triple damages for lost wages.
The other is negativity insentivising management. Dept. managers bounuses would be inversely tied to staff OT hours worked. This includes Senior mgt as well. THEN you might see some changes.

Trade war with China and maybe actual war with N. Korea. Trump tanks a healthy economy and drags JAPAN down too he can't take responsibility for anything so more name calling and blaming of others continues.
In Japan, sadly more of the same. Everyone knows that structural reform is necessary, but nobody wants to be the "1st penguin in the water." Thus nothing changes.

That was a train wreck. I'm pretty sure she didn't prep in the least. And given her tipsy performances in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if alcohol didn't play a factor here as well.

If they are so sure, why not get a warrant for a test of his hair? Sounds like the police really bungled this badly.

So Abe knifes his main security guarantor in the back twice ina week. Lets Vlad out of his isolation box for nothing in return and then conducts secret talks with the North (I wonder WHAT they could possibly want?) to the detriment of anti-nuclear efforts. Obana should go up-side Abe's head with a wet udon noodle.

He should take it in the shorts for his back-stabbing Putin summit. Broke solidarity with the G-7 for no gain.
Graham DeShazoDec. 18, 2016 - 10:42AM JST
It was cheesy and in the middle of nowhere. Right up there with Seagaiya and House Ten Boshe.
Graham DeShazoDec. 16, 2016 - 05:36PM JST
Some friend of the West......gives Vlad an escape from his isolation for nothing in return. This shouldn't be forgotten by other G-7 members.

Posted in: For many decades, Japan has played an important role in providing development and humanitarian aid to countries throughout East and Southeast Asia, but it was long ‘hindered,’ so to speak, by its pacifist defense policy. It can now become more directly engaged in regional securitization efforts. For some, this is reassuring. For others, it is cause for concern.
