OOsanAmerica What a surprise to find you posting anti-Chinese rhetoric again; can’t help yourself, I guess. I would think that being “An American veteran” you would have a grander world scope and more important things to do with your time than to obsess (post almost daily) about China and Korea, disparage the United States (what’s that all about veteran?), and valiantly defend Japan (at absolutely every opportunity). I’ve enjoyed reading your history posts (as should everybody else reading this) and would find your attempt at spreading Japanese right wing propaganda amusing if were so disturbing and dangerous…But then again, judging from people’s responses to your posts, they don’t take you seriously anyway.

Posted in: Former U.S. POWs want Japanese companies to apologize See in context

Points well taken Neo Without belabouring this topic, I think the apologies should be more genuine and more from the people as opposed to the governemnt... I guess we'll have to agree to disagree to a certain degree.

You've been in Japan long enough to realize that the average Japanese person knows very little about Japan's militaristic past. Except for Hiroshima and Nagssaki (of course)...Do you think that "forgetting about it" will help or hinder it's relationship with its Asian neighbors? In the long run, do you think a good relationship with it's Asian neighbors will be good or bad for Japan? Can you see where I am going with this? It's in Japan's best interest to come clean and make a concerted government effort to educate it's public about its unfortunate history with (basically) the rest of Asia...

The fact of the matter is Japan has done the absolute opposite of what should do to make amends for its misdeeds in WW2. To get into all the minutia (of these misdeeds) would just a waste of time on this forum, as most of these people posting obviously have no interest in both the history of Japan or the repercussions of not learning from history. Juxtapose Japan with a mature nation like Germany and you will see what Japan needs to do to finally come to terms with its neighbors about its past. People (usually Japanese), will speak of the treaty of San Francisco, that Japan was not part of the Geneva Convention, and the fact that Japan has “already” apologized as examples of why Japan has done enough. Great,rely on technicalities and semantics. Why don’t you ask the rest of Asia if these arguements and actions are sufficient? Because this is who you guys are going to have to answer to for the next hundred years. As Japan’s star continue to fall, as the rest of Asia continues to rise, and as America continues to lose interest in you… the apologies will come a little easier I am sure. One thing history has demonstrated is that Japan can be a big suck-up when it wants to be. They play the bully and suck-up equally as as well. They just need to properly cued.

Posted in: Sharp president calls for more action to contain strong yen See in context

Whenever the yen is strong, Japan complains that that it doesn’t represent true economic fundamentals so Japan inc goes about manipulating currency rates.., So weasely… …No, Japan…it’s time you played on a level playing field… A great deal of its success is attributable to the fact that until the early 70s, the yen was pegged at 360 yen to the dollar…and the fact that it had (and has) unfettered access to western markets…Something that is not reciprocated…Every time the yen starts to rise though, Japan goes on its ridiculous whining game of lowering it and giving its export economy the upper hand…. Suck it Japan and learn to live with it…

The way Japan has dealt with the World war 2 issue is absolutely shameful. I am always amazed at how ridiculously ignorant people appear when they discuss the option of let by-gones be by-gones as the best way to go... Well, it hasn't worked yet...Even 65 years later the resentment of Japan that boils in Asia (forget America) over it's remorseless actions is growing ever stronger... In contrast Germany, which committed equally, if worse, atrocities...was genuinely remorseful after the war...Not only by words but through deeds and education. miraculously has not only been forgiven...but has become an integral, trusted part of Europe. Japan is soon going to come to the realization that Asia ( with China as its anchor and powerhouse) i a tough, lonely, and dangerous neighborhood. Gambatte! Gambatte!
