But Japan isn't just defending itself .
> Japan is involving itself in other countries conflicts.
> Japan is involved in waging an economic war against it's neighbors and seeks to be a big brother of Asia.
> Shooting down missiles heading towards Japan is yes defensive.
> but however seeking strike capabilities of foreign enemy bases and nuclear capabilities isn't pacifist or only defensive.
> If Japan is truly a democracy then why is the imperial system still in use ?
> Japan is an imperialistic dictatorship masquerading as a democracy.

Well, it probably only costs a few hundred yen to buy the thinner needed to remove the paint and maybe 1,000 or 2,000 to have someone actually do the work. The rest of the money goes for the countless supervisors who will show up to make sure the the work gets done properly .

See how many cases of influenza were in the last season, now see how many cases of COVID are there every day.
I don't recall mass testing for influenza. And indeed, the statistics for influenza are strangely and largely not available for the past few years. A fair comparison cannot be made, but perhaps should be.
Are we OK to talk about this yet? If not, I'm sure my comment will be "appropriately" censored in due course...

Why hurt business individuals if they are not involved? They may even be against the Kremlin's actions.
Not only does it hurt Russian individuals, but hurts themselves.

Japan already has the capability to defend itself with the 9th largest military budget in the world. It was clear from the start that the LDP would use Ukraine as a pretext to militarize. No army in the world stands to protect its citizens but to protect the interests of its country's super rich. Those in power in Japan, just like any nationalists, talk about protecting the country while nostalgic for times when other countries needed protection from their heroes.
People here live in a fairytale world, where America, much like in the movies, will always save the common folk.

To add to my comment above:
To insinuate that not enough people are wearing masks in Japan is just downright disingenuous.
Japan is one of the most "masked up" nations on Earth.
I rarely see someone not wearing a mask. In public places, it's near 100%.

TBH, I wear a mask in public places purely because of public pressure from outspoken virtue signalling.
But it's come to a point where the absence of seeing facial expressions, a basic form of human interaction - has more of a negative affect on my overall health than the perceived threat COVID. I want to see people smile again!
At some point you also have to see the situation more holistically. Focusing only on masks and "vaccinations" while ignoring the negative impacts of policy, the globe over, becomes rather myopic and damaging.

Like I say.. a sheltered life. A lot of hate and a cursory understanding of the current economy to go with it. Thanks for clearing that up.

Keep on with the strawmen, Steven.
If you believe there have been no restrictions in Japan, you must enjoy quite a sheltered life or not have your roots put down here.
Not every rule is written in Japan. The quasi restrictions were enough to cause many small businesses to slowly choke out and completely change the way of life. There is no end in sight to the damage caused.
Please stop with your imaginary minority as people just want to rebuild their lives and the economy.

Shilling for the US tentacles firmly embedded in Japan. It only hurts regular people in Russia, but at the same time makes them appreciate their leader, and hate the west, more.

As soon as NZ and Australia tried to ease back their restrictions, their infection rates and related deaths skyrocketed, based on government statistics.
Are you suggesting that nations should lock their people and economies down, until there is literally zero covid?
Sweden had it right all along. But were demonized like so many others that had it right.

Why not? the vaccines have been working all this time, it would be unreasonable to expect "this time" to be different.
Then why are triple/quadruple vaxxed people getting COVID? Come on, this is getting old.
