    He's not, that's the point

    Where does it say that in the article..? Also the "protectionist backlash" is only occurring with the comical morons in America and not the rest of the world who are moving ahead with more trade integration. Even with Brexit, the major point of negotiation has moved from immigration to trade. As PM of a trade-exposed nation, Abe's moves here are the bare minimum of what would be expected as head of government so your bizarre and nonsensical opposition I think belies ulterior motives

    What a moron. You can bet foreigners will have a slightly harder time picking up taxis for the next few weeks if they appear even slightly drunk

    Well, it'll be interesting to see how all these supposed rube "rebels" are going to vote on Thursday. We will see if they really are going to stand up for a heavier repeal bill, or whether they are ultimately just cowards who were having a bit of a cry to get attention. I would be surprised if it were the former

    Makes sense, you will always get burned by being close to China as ultimately they are only looking out for their own advancement and have a heavy ultra-nationalist domestic audience to constantly placate. I feel no sympathy for SK though with their shameless swooning at China. Both need to pick up their act

    Well it's good he's making moves to secure and promote free trade. As a trading nation Japan is more exposed than most and the moronic trend towards protectionism should be resisted at all costs

    Very tragic, most places don't have much powder anymore so the conditions could have had a factor in his death

    Definite non-tariff trade barrier, and China is playing a dangerous opening game with Trump openly talking about tariffs on Chinese imports. This could escalate

    Well high level talks are always cause for hope and are forward moving, however I would say no peace treaty without the resolution of the islands issue

    It's extremely unfortunate the G20 of all organisations omitted resisting protectionism, every country in this group grew rich off free trade

    I wonder what Chinese consumers think of all this? Surely they're not going to be happy about going back to Chinese domestic produce?

    I would easily welcome a Matrix reboot, however pretty much all remakes and reboots and adaptations in the past few years have been such shocking garbage that I probably wouldn't even be bothered to watch it. There is just so much crap coming out recently..

    Well, if these figures are somehow actually reflective of reality, then that's great news!

    Rather than trying to interpret and change the label based on the literal meaning of "half" as opposed to something like "double", it would be better for halfies to own the term "half". I don't think I've met a single Japanese person who doesn't like halfies and isn't a bit jealous so the assertion that people are literally meaning half of a normal person is ludicrous.

    Besides, if you take it literally, the label "double" is also not a good term as it implies a 100% advantage over a standard "single".

    The SC Sea is international waters, so there is no problem here. If China has some issues with SC Sea sovereignty, they should take it up with the UN or the PCA for clarification. They may even find that the PCA already ruled on this over a year ago.

    If China cannot abide by global norms, then they are a pariah state like North Korea and a threat to world peace and threats to world peace are treated as such until they fall into line

    In post-truth America, it doesn't even matter that Trump is spewing complete BS, as long as he puts it out there it distracts, confuses, divides and that's all that matters. It's no coincidence he tweeted that garbage just prior to 1) releasing details on his comically stupid budget, 2) revealing his astonishingly poor healthcare plan, 3) half his inner team looking set to be outed as foreign traitors, 4) he himself looking about to be snagged as a foreign agent engaged in treason, 5) him reneging on almost all campaign promises, 6) his moronic travel ban once again being blocked as illegitimate.

    Judging by all the media coverage on these phantom wiretaps, he has been extremely successful in this smoke and mirrors tactic. The American media needs to wake up and stop treating his BS seriously

    I wonder if less efficient fuel economy cars will be more competitive in overseas export markets where environmental regulations will be stricter than what Trump changes the American ones too?
