Just remember to stop taking antibiotics when you feel better and not after the infection is actually gone.

Who cares what our illustrious leaders are CONSIDERING?

That's what responsible governments do before they take action. They consider things.

Otherwise you end up like the USA under Trump, taking action without considering things first.

That's what responsible governments do before they take action. They consider things.

And they bring the idea up with the public to get a read on their opinions.

Big brother Trump won’t like this. Japan is only trying to secure cheap oil.

It's a matter of balance. Obviously some degree of consideration and planning is necessary. My point is this. Why broadcast it publicly when it's only in the consideration stage? If it's to guage public opinion, that doesn't work either. They should KNOW what public opinion is before they consider anything. They are supposed to represent us, aren’t they?

Humanitarian supports for Iran means "Please tell them to try not attack oil tankers/vessels/ships belonged to Japan." This seems a good political card. If Iran can do it, Japan would not have to send any defense forces there.

Wow, I guess Japan enjoys making a deal with the devil.

And they bring the idea up with the public to get a read on their opinions.

And then go on to ignore the opinion of the public and implement whatever they want. It is a waste of time and resources getting the feel of the public when it is going to be ignored anyway ss it doesn't matter.

Japan trying to play a double game with Iran and America but it won't work.

Theres nothing wrong with Japan helping provide Iranians with desperately needed medicine. It shows that Japan cares. Japan has never been anti-Islam against Iran, unlike The West.

Iran and Japan are old friends. Iran considers Japan a friend.

Subterfuge, extortion, bribery, and intimidation - prime tools of foreign policy available to unpleasant nations. Does Iran have a decent track record.
