    Trump has no clue about the nuances of foreign policy and only thinks in terms of money. His comments - and actions if elected - will only speed Japan into changing the constitution and arming up to defend itself. With the USA showing reluctance in the region, China will grab its chance to seize and militarize more disputed islands, and will deploy miltary vessels in the South China Sea. With less US support for countries like the Philippines, they will partner even more with Japan.

    Japan and China will clash - skirmishes at first - and there will be a war with China. All accompanied by a global economic slump.

    America, be very careful what you wish for.

    14 years in Japan and never been stopped. I even got reprimanded by a policeman for crossing the road against the traffic signal right opposite a koban but he didn't ask for any ID, just said don't do it again.

    Saw a Trump supporter/correspondent on TV trying to justify why tennis balls and lightbulbs were banned within a certain area of a Trump convention while AK47 assault rifles weren't. She said, Because people won't throw an AK47.

    Lol, Trump's sure got some real dumb supporters out there.

    We've seen them restrict rare earths before. This is an obvious reaction to the recent ruling against China on its illegal activities in the South China Sea. Time to kick China out of the WTO or impose sanctions. The more the world sucks on the teet of Chinese money, the more it exposes itself to these situations.

    So much for China's efforts to make the world think that all of Asia hates Japan. The reality is that most victims of Japan's imperial aggression 70 years ago, like the Philippines are welcoming Japan's participation in maintaining the peace, security and stability of East Asia on all levels. Sorry China but it's you that's acting like Imperial Japan, but then that's what dictatorships do. South China Sea 2016 = Manchuria 1937. China is the one that needs to learn from history.

    Absolutely spot on.

    Don't be surprised about the iPhone thing. China even allows Chinese companies to register (steal) established global brand names and trademarks, including the oldest guitar company in the world, Martin guitars. It's shameless. And the world (WTO, etc) let's these jokers get away with it?!

    The sound of rockabilly and rock and roll. His solos on Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog and Lawdy Miss Clawdy still sound exciting today. RIP Scotty Moore.

    They also tend to lean toward apparel that emphasizes their breasts.

    I would have liked to have seen some pictorial evidence here.

    For scientific purposes.

    These scumbags like to play the big shots but backed down soon enough when they met with resistance. Good to see. And good to see the court and local governments upholding hate speech laws.

    Jeez, trains are already expensive in Japan, especially those that require a surcharge. I don't know how neighbouring countries like Korea, Taiwan and China can charge a fraction of the price here and still run trains just as fast.

    Try living in England. Way more expensive and by far a worse service.

    Dan Lewis, If the yaks didn't get contracts for reconstruction work, you wouldn't see them helping out. They only do it as an organisation because there's a pay off. After all, if they really cared for their communities, they wouldn't be extorting business owners and the like on a daily basis in the first place.

    China has built on and militarised disputed islands in the region. A third of the world's oil goes through the region. It doesn't take a genius to see the dangers.

    Some parasites living here will find fault with anything Japan does, but then they'll be the first ones to scuttle off to their home countries when the going gets tough.

    This is precisely the reason Japan needs to stay strong in the region. China doesn't recognize anything else and ignores diplomatic appeals.

    It's a good thing that this racist scum group has had its videos taken down. There are hate speech laws in Japan and it's good to see them being enforced.

    The publishers said their actions were intended to improve textbooks and teaching manuals rather than influence the selection of materials for use in schools. Some publishers were found to have sent gifts to local government and education board officials involved in public school textbook selection.

    You don't send gifts. A better way to thank schools for help in developing effective teaching materials would be to credit them on the inside page of the textbook. That gives the school or individual prestige in the educational field. It also makes purchasing the book for those particular schools more likely. Even better, pay leading private schools like Waseda to help develop the books. That will add a whole lot of perceived kudos to the sales process.

    Read between the lines. The deal always included the removal of the statue but that particular condition was not meant to be publicised by either side. With agreement reached, the South Korean government would quietly go about getting the statue removed by bringing pressure on the civic group that erected the statue to 'understand' that its aims had been achieved. Abe unfortunately chose to disclose the agreement in order to counter accusations from his natural support base, the right, that he had capitulated on the issue. There was always a link between Japan giving the money and the removal of the statue. It's a logical and unsurprising link, whether one agrees with it or not. It was just never meant to become public because it makes Korea's negotiation of a settlement look weaker.

    Poor move by Abe. A more able politician would have focussed on the positives that will ensue from a more harmonious relationship between the two countries.

    What I would much rather see is an official apology, one that goes in the white-washed textbooks, stating that Japan did indeed force the women into sexual slavery (directly and indirectly), and that they are genuinely sorry for the pain and suffering they caused. THAT would end the issue

    LMAO. Course it wouldn't. Whiners love to keep whining. It'll never stop. Oh, and take anything other than the official whiner's line in S.Korea and you get prosecuted:

    White-washed textbooks you say? Well South Korea's got some of their own coming:

    Koreans suffer at the hands of their own government. First, they suffered under the post-war dictatorship, then they never got the compensation that Japan gave their government, then freedom of speech is stifled under an unobjective legal system, then they get their new government-approved version of history...
