Japan should stay out of it. Abe is just looking for excuses to deploy more SDF members.

The past 3 comments I guess you didn't hear what happened with Iran, tensions rising, missiles have been fired, people died, plane crashed.

That don't matter... Trolling Japan is what matters.

Glad to see someone is trying to defuse matters. The idiot in the White House certainly isn't. Seems to me like he is just trying to take attention away from his Ukraine scandal by committing murder and bringing the world closer to war.

Iran is ruling the roost, they control the flow,

Japan doesn't exercise any "regional diplomacy", even here in NE Asia...

Japan IMO isn’t doing anything to diffuse anything but situation at home after Ghosn’s escape and the latest corruption scandal.

Dear leader actually cancelled his tour when the situation was tense and resumed after tensions deescalated. However the local media as usual is portraying Abe like a champion diplomat averting Third World War.

Japan is closer than the US. Maybe the US should stay out of it. That may help.
