When a Japanese Navy Ship visits Pearl Harbor, it flies the Rising Sun Flag. If the USN, does not have a problem with it, why should anyone else?

You know what is really interesting? The same people who screamed about the statue being removed from the Aichi Art exhibition and now calling for the banning of the rising sun flag. I guess they don't what freedom of expression means.

Posted in: WWII start marked in Poland with German remorse, warning See in context

"Abe should take note!"

Yes, he should because despite German apologies, both the Poles and the Greeks continue to ask for compensation. Here is a quote from the full Reuters article:

"Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party has made the memory of the war is a major plank of its “historical politics”, aiming to counteract what it calls the West’s lack of appreciation for Polish suffering and bravery under Nazi occupation.

PiS politicians have repeatedly called for war reparations from Germany, one of Poland’s biggest trade partners and a fellow member of the European Union and NATO, and several onlookers yelled “reparations” after Steinmeier spoke.

Berlin says all financial claims linked to World War Two have been settled, "

Sounds Familiar. Does it not?

Posted in: S Korean lawmakers visit disputed islets as Japan tensions mount See in context

They are called Dokdo, for starters, and are lived on and administered year-round by South Korea. It is their sovereign territory. 

If South Korea feels that way, then South Korea should accept the Japanese proposal to take the issue to the ICJ, as the Japanese have proposal on numerous occasions. As with the forced labor issue, South Korea refuses to take it to the ICJ. Why?

A good start, but Japan needs to do much more. Japan should get intermediate range missiles, 12 full deck carriers, bombers but most important of all, get rid of article 9.

"Pure comedy gold this one."

Not as funny as the dumb as nail comment. I guess you don't know that Japan does not have 1, not 2, but 3 nuclear weapons states on its boarders. If having three nuclear weapons is not " Incredibly dangerous" , please tell me what would be incredibly dangerous?

"Dentsu distills a lot of what's wrong with corporate Japan into one complete package."

I guess someone forgot to read that it is a Swiss company that is under investigation and not the Japanese company itself.

"Still-born babies do not go full-term. "

LOL again

Stillbirth is the delivery, after the 20th week of pregnancy, A baby is stillborn in about 1 in 200 pregnancies. Because many stillbirths happen in what appear to be normal pregnancies, they can be devastating to the parents.

In other words, the baby could have been still born. In other the baby was born dead.

Posted in: Abe says S Korea canceling intel deal damages trust See in context

Well played PM ABE!

First, Japan removed Korea from Japan's whitelist yet it has not blocked any exports to Korea, so Korea has nothing to complain about.

Second, South Korea is not on America's white list either. So, how's South Korea going to make the case that being on the whitelist has anything to do with the intel pact?

Third, Moon is battling a scandal involving his Justice minster. People are already making the case that Moon killed the Intel pact to divert attention from the scandal.

Fourth, The US is pissed off, South Korea will now lose all support in the US.

Put all the above together, Japan has won a major victory !
