Japanese parents are as loving as all other parents. It is sick to hear all those who blame everything on the Japanese people, as if they were morons. Perhaps, if Japanese parents act as being lectured by those foreign "teachers", their children would be as smart as their children, so 8+1 would be 10, and a big five for the best effort answer.

No easy solution.

Destroy properties that belong to others, is that typical colonizer mentality ?

When Japan started to make trouble for China in 2010 by declaring "Pioneering Day" to commemorate Japan's 1895 annexation of the Senkaku Islands, GDP for Japan and China were 5.1 and 6.1 trillions, respectively. Today, almost 20 years later, it is about 5.75 and 27.3 trillions based on PPP. The change of balance is simply astonishing, unpredicted by all Japanese experts and politicians. Had they knew it then, they wouldn't do the same stupid thing to challenge China recklessly. There is no way that Japan can win the dispute, based on laws and justice and history. No one would ever go to war with China for the Islands, no matter what they would say.

Japan has an easy decision to make, choose Senkaku, or China. Only one simple decision.

No northeast asians should be hurt by this.

Right approach. That is why 5G is so important. Unfortunately, Japan missed the golden opportunity to work with China on this vcital technology.

Samit Basu, unfortunately, Japanese don't have the Korean guts to take on Abe. $ 1 trillion loss in 5 years, the suffering just isn't enough. Maybe another $ trillion loss will do the trick.

The talk is just an appetizer. Main dish is next. Everybody will be fed, satisfactorily.

thepersoniamnow, China waived $ 1 trillion of war compensation caused by Imperialist Japan. Don't upset China, because the waiver is conditional. Of course I wouldn't recommend China to do so.

NZ2011, you misinterpreted the good will of Koreans and Chinese. Smart people will not forget mistake done in the past. Northeast Asians don't want wars again, that is a good thing, not bad thing. If Koreans and Chinese want to play victim card, then they can simply claim the war damage supported by international laws. If Japan didn't colonize other neighbours, as what the west did to many others, then this will not happen at all, the so called "history victim". The northeast asians will be the happiest nations on the planet. And this trade dispute will never happen.

Japanese govt will meet Korean govt. Japanese govt will solemnly explain its policy, and the SK govt will fully understand it. That is the way, no alternatives.
-10 ( +0 / -10 )
yoshi, Japanese govt is very smart. There are plenty loopholes and backdoors, depending on the attitude of SK, and I am sure that SK will compromise to satisfy Japanese govt, but not in the principle of history. That is why coupling the politics and the trade, as what thepersoniamnow is doing, is stupid.
-13 ( +4 / -17 )
Both Koreans and Japanese are resilient people, stubborn and smart. What happened is very typical northeast asian things, and it will happen again and again. But if SK can dominate the world in this high tech, and Japan can control that domination, it shows the capability of Northeast Asia. Everything will be fine, as simple as that.
-14 ( +4 / -18 )
thepersoniamnow, coupling politics with trade is totally wrong, because it will not help to resolve the problem. Japan will talk to Korea, no doubt about it, unless everyone is crazy.
-14 ( +6 / -20 )
JustMyThoughts, you must know that Japan and Korea are always closer to China, don't you ? That is the fate, as simple as that.
-12 ( +1 / -13 )
Once again, Japan behaved as a western "power" badly again.

Bows, the end.

weedkila, vanishing muslims ? definitely not in China.
-16 ( +1 / -17 )
Based on rumors, possibly faked and fabricated report, ambassadors singed a letter to blame China for something she doesn't do ? Japan isn't a democratic nation at all, and not quite civilized, as simple as that.

I am sure that Abe will see Moon very soon, impossible not.

Abe's unconditional approach toward NK will pay off, eventually.

Moon is very respected, no doubt about that.

Peeping_Tom, what "Japan should let Korea sweat" ? Japan isn't a sadistic nation, as simple as that.

Neighbours will resolve difficult issues through talks, especially between smart neighbours.

yoshi, what national security you are talking about ? Are you secured if you constantly fight with your neighbours ?
