Posted in: San Francisco mayor accepts 'comfort women' statue; Osaka to end sister-city ties See in context

Out of curiosity, does anyone think that San Fransisco would consent to a statute commemorating the Tiananmen square protests and later massacres in Beijing, if China objected? My guess is that it wouldn't.

There is a statue in the heart of SF Chinatown that commemorates June 4

1glenn: A similar controversy followed a Cuban baseball player who squinted his eyes mocking a Japanese team member. The offender was forced to apologize for racist behavior. If you don't get the squinting thing as an insult, you probably don't believe racism exists.

Posted in: You wanna 'Gyoza It.' tonight? See in context

No one, except you, said anything about 'Chinese claiming everything was invented in China.' My response was to counterclaim the quote by the Ajiinomoto frozen food spokesman "... it’s actually difficult to find fried dumplings in China. Steamed or boiled dumplings are their mainstream."

Fried dumplings in China are called "guotie" and have been found there long before Japan claimed it as their dish.

Duterte basically went to China, lifted up his skirt, and bent over.

Posted in: Visiting flood-damaged Louisiana, Trump moves ahead with campaign turnaround See in context

Under Trump, I'm not sure anyone in the world would be alive in four years under him. I give it about a year until he either has to declare martial law in the U.S., or start a full-scale nuclear war with a country he can't play nice with (e.g. China).

I'm no fan of Trump, but Hillary is a liberal war hawk. She'll 'stand up to China' and start a war in Asia.

This is an American movie so it is unsurprising that an American plays the lead. Just as we saw with the Last Samurai or the US version of The Grudge.

So how well did Last Samurai do at the Japanese box office? Did the Japanese audience accept the white savior come to the aid of samurais?

Right. It only cost needless deaths of 150,000 Iraqi lives and the destruction of their country. so much for American concern for human rights.

Posted in: China says Nanjing more worthy of remembrance than Hiroshima See in context

If they had any class, they would offer support for the visit and acknowledge the suffering of the innocent Japanese who died in the atomic bombings. That's what they should have done. Instead they took it as an opportunity to stick the boots in and make it about them. That's terrible.

Abe could have shown some class by admitting neighboring countries also suffered enormously at the hands of the Japanese military/govt. It's terrible that Japanese are pictured as sole victims of the war.

His remark is callous, but Is it possible the offending English translation was distorted?

This is the report from Xinhua: " Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing on Friday that "It is worth paying attention to Hiroshima, but Nanjing should not be forgotten."

"Victims deserve sympathy, but perpetrators can never shirk their responsibility," Wang said.
