Soon, Japan will see what this type of government can achieve once again , I guess they forgot about it . "Democracy" is a pretty word that is not practiced in Japan . Consensus over ideas is truly out of the window now. I can just smell the first conflict around the bend like hot sake in an evening at a Matsuri in Setagaya . Japan is in a world of uncertainty . The economy , natural disasters ,reconstruction , fukushima , aging nuclear plants , an aging society and no real policy towards immigration to fill up the ranks of the work force . Add to that a pinch of TPP and a tax hike ! There is a complete lack of leadership for the good of the land . Abe's leadership is for a Japan that exists only on his head , a show off Japan that lacks substance . Abe talks tough under the US umbrella , outside of that it is all empty talk .

Sadness ! Japan is such a great country ! The illusion that a totalitarian government can solve all of Japanese problems is indeed a grave mistake . The Japanese were fooled once and granted it was not through elections at the time , they paid an incredible price for it . It seems the public can be swayed to be believe Abe is the answer to all problems . Japan should not need to be reminded of that danger . Abe and his party can manage the media pretty well .

Tokyo tower but not skytree . What is the problem with the reaction time in Japan to events like this ? Too much bowing to superiors .... That's it ! If something like this happens you do not have to ask your boss to do it and ask it later if he is not a total imbecile he will thank you for that .

There has to be an investigation into Hatiyama's accounts abroad . I would say he must have gotten a lot of money in exchange for discrediting the J Government and the rest of The World . That's the way Putin and his friends operate .
