In the past 30 years, I visited China every year. Each time when I talked to my friends there, they would say that they would never forget what Japan did to help them. Since the opening of China, many Japanese went to China to help them in any ways then could. It is very much appreciated. Each time when I heard them to say that, I would also say that Japanese would never forget that too. In fact, Japanese have good memory too.

dougthehead13, what do you mean that Japan is a consolidated democracy ? Does majority Japanese want Abe to change the constitution ? I don't think so. Then what is your self claimed democracy ? Against majorities ?

First, it was reported that "Shinzo Abe, who was prime minister from 2006 to 2007, once reportedly told a room full of college students that possessing nukes wouldn't violate Japan's constitution as long as the arsenal was "small in scale.""
Second, Japan did have nuclear weapons on its territory since the end of WW2, till 1972, and allows nuclear weapon return if needed.
Third, Japan is against nuclear ban at UN, no shame to admit it.

The good news is that he wasn't investigated by Japanese prosecutors. Otherwise he would be not on the stage, but in the jail.

"In January, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in the Diet that he believes long-range cruise missiles are not weapons banned under the Constitution."
Abe isn't the constitution. His belief is void.

"I am determined to put my all into developing conditions in which Self-Defense Force personnel can carry out their duties with strong pride," Abe, commander in cheat said.
Which constitution forbids Self-Defense Force personnel carry out their duties with strong pride ????

Hypocrisy is at its best. As long as Japan doesn't change its pro-nuclear war weapon policy, the rest is simply a joke.

Brexit tells one thing clearly and loudly": one single referendum vote isn't democracy.

Peeping_Tom, confront China on a more assertive way ? Which way ? down the toilet way ? China will double her economy in another 10 years and will become the world No 1 in all ways. Can Japan claim the same privileged ? the same determination ? and the same fate ?

Japanese court is a joke. The court doesn't protect Japanese people, the court doesn't protect Japanese lands, the court doesn't protect Japanese rights.

I have high hope for Japan to show the leadership in certain high technologies during Olympics.

Is Japan any better than UK ? I don't think so. Japan isolates itself from Northeast Asia against China since 2012, and GDP drops from $6.20 trillions to $4.39 trillions. Do you know what $1.8 trillion mean ? That is 7 Philippines combined at 2012. Yes, Japan lost 7 Philippines since "nationalize Senkakus".

"There is no problem when it is hard to find someone else to replace him,"
True. No patriotic Japanese would want to be a PM of Japan, because the govt never worked for Japanese people.

extanker, what exactly does China steal from the world ? China doesn't steal colonialism to conquer other's lands; China doesn't steal imperialsim to occupy other's nation; China doesn't steal other's govt to exploit their people.

Derek Grebe, why would Japanese people tolerate the stupid govt ? Simply shifting the time by one month, 90% disasters will no longer exist.

The stupid govt never is smart. Instead of enforcing, the govt just warned, small but not firm, typical Japanese thing.

"Tokyo 2020 preparing for any disaster"
The govt doesn't lie, because it chooses the month of disasters.
