NUG aren't the ones doing the fighting. Instead they are living abroad on other countries dime. As if they could ever be given power even if the different group of rebels manage to overthrow the current government. If they care so much, they should return and fight for their countries like the other rebel groups.

The tide will turn when the frontline troops cross over to the side of the rebels. Thousands have already done so and joined the ranks of the rebellion

History shows that Japanese right-wing governments only aid and abet people in power. There's no empathy or help for those fighting for freedom and justice against an oppressive regime.
