Your scenario is scary. Hopefully it will not become the reality!

US and Canada, Australia and New Zealand likes the close neighbors of China and Japan. US ADIZ has been overlapped with Canada because of greedy expansion from US. Although Canada is not happy, it has not made the fuss about it. Besides that Canada has not many enemy unlike US. In somecases, Canadian Plane might intrude into US ADIZ. In my living memory, US has never shot down the Canadian plane. Japan should follow the neighborly good will and friendly gesture of US for not making the noise about it. Everybody needs good neighbor like US, Canada, Australia and Kiwi.

In my humble eyes, Japan ADIZ is so large and overlapping with both Korea and PRC. Japan is smaller than Montana state of US. However Japan ADIZ is five times larger than Montana. It does not make sense. Both Japan and China have to withdrew their ADIZ for the sake of all birds and planes freedom for navigation.

Ladies and Gentlemen

Sex slavery and comfort women has different definition. Some 20 cents army of apologetic J imperial army want to flip the coins as both have same surface. In the real world, there are always two opposite as Ying and Yan as Flag of ROK flag. if there is no Sun, there will be night for 24 hours. On the contrast, there will be day for 24 hours if there is no moon. Therefore assuming all women as paid prostitutes means all imperial soldiers were pure and innocent as Angles. That biased fabrication are misleading and insensitive to the victims.

When we look at the photo of that article, two persons standing and clapping were neither Korean nor Chinese. They are Indonesians or Pinoys. Sex slaves issue is not only between Korea and Japan. Neitherland, Myanmar and many South Pacific nations too.As the poor nation, my Governenment of Myanmar has to shut up for not offending J government for raising that issue. As the private citizen, I am so annoyed about the paid propaganda of white washing the dirty business of Divine living God of Hirohito. Emperor was a recruiter of the WWII sex salves. Asians do not need to please the Japan for everything. History is not washing machine made in Japan.

The more J authority deny about the past, the more it will get the embarrassment at the present and there will be no future for becoming decent and respectable nation in Asia.

Posted in: China should build ties with Russia to counter Japan: newspaper See in context

During the Cold War, USSR and PRC were young couple before. However it was not last long due to debt settlement. Now time has changed for favoring the reunion.

Russia has more nuke war heads than PRC. PRC has more money than Russia. If nuke and money married, it will be unbeatable union blessed by Son of God. It is questionable that Russia will involve in PRC territory dispute or not, Russia has never been a fan of US. Ukraine crisis was a displeasure of Russia being Cornered by Yakuza or Mafia team members and satellite states of touch talks gangsters of NATO. NATO likes average Joe talks lousy, arrogant and extremely exaggerated. However it lacks the real action and prefer the slogan of hiding out when the warriors have come.

Back in 2008, Hawkish conservative admin of Bush did not respond even their fellow gangster Geogeria has been educated by Russia. Back in 1962 of Cuban crisis, even USSR shot down two U-2 planes at the door step of US. President John F Kennedy still compromised with USSR even It was embarrassing and losing face for his touch talks career. US and USSR showdown was so brief. Since then US has been less touch and more gentle with Russia.

PRC will not match the US superior technology. However it does not stop for them for getting touched when it has been cycled by fellow gangsters of Asia pivots. Before Obama trip to pivot region, PRC has been less confrontational. After Obama reassurance, PRC has been testing the water with oil rig and water cannon. So far the response from US is Yes! You can!

No wonder Asia pivot nations have been losing faith for unproductive and unreliable assurance from Big brother Uncle Sam. At the end, all touch talks have been evaporated as steam. Vietnam and Philippines have no more trust on Asia pivot!

you are not being paid as one of the 30 thousand China's internet propaganda bots...

Vietnamese nationalists are offended when the truth have been prevailed by international media. No one said China is good for making Oil Rig without concern of others. However Vietnam should target the source of the problem instead of releasing anger over scapegoats. If Vietnamese will start killing Vietnam born and raised Chinese, it will become another Genocide of Serbia. Serbia has been disintegrated for killing ethnic Albanians. Vietnam may become another Serbia.

Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for China...

Japan and Philippines are both moral enemies and competitor of territory of PRC. However no Japanese and Pinoys have torched, looted and damaged foreign business. Vietnam have gone too far with blood shed and violence at the moment.

Vietnam should defend the national interest with stronger Arm Force. Making stronger Arm force needed more tax from business. As Octagon posted, if foreigners will not want to do business in Vietnam, it will make Vietnam poorer and weaker! Therefore Vietnam is wrong for targeting foreign business instead of PRC Authority. Hope you will admit two wrongs can not make one right!

I do not get any cent for making rumors. As a business traveler, I am frustrated about Vietnam lawlessness and injustice for foreigners who have made their nation richer. I guess you have just read your nation media propaganda. Vietnam and China are both ruled by one communist party with controlled media. Anyway, I am not a fan of China or Vietnam.

The riot at Formosa construction site is a tit for tat between china workers and the local workers. Sadly injuries and fatalities on both sides..

How about the Singapore business, Korean business and Japanese business? Have they had tit and tat between imported and local workers? Sadly injuries and fatalities on minority side. Even Vietnam born Chinese who can not talk single word of Chinese have been targeted. It should be called as ethnic cleansing. It was politically motivated riot! Not the normal industrial conflict between local and foreign workers. Vietnam authority has blood in the hands for cheat provocation.

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/two-singapore-run/1105126.html

China started it all and must be responsible for the chaos in the region. Put your blame squarely on the hostile Chinese regime and claim your compensation.

If it is true, why not mobs went to attack the PRC embassy or PRC officials residing in the Vietnam. If Vietnamese nationals are honest and open minded, they should attack PRC officials instead of foreign business. Taiwan will not claim the compensation as money. There are many Vietnamese nationals working in Taiwan too. If Taiwan locals claim their blood as compensation, Vietnamese nationalists should not cry as arrogant fools. According Buddha, there will be pay back cycle for offender of Sin. Vietnam should be solely blamed for cold blooded murder of foreigners.

Japan has territory dispute with China too. There are many Chinese workers and students in Japan. No Japanese has torched and killed with uncivilized and barbaric manner of mobs from Vietnam. Ordinary people are not influential for territory conflict.

Since the relationship between the man and the woman was consensual, there is nothing that needs to be said about it.

Depends on time, place and marital status. If Judge and Lawyer have made affair in the court room, both will be lost their job, reputation and privilege. They have transformed honourable court as dishonourable love hotel. For Bill and Monica, they were guilty for changing white house as porn house. White house is no longer white because of them.

Judgements of relationships from the outside are grounded in ignorance and invariably wrong.

President of US should be faithful to his wife. President of US should respect the white house and former Presidents photos. President of US is not the Henry VI who can have six wives. President of US can not cheat young intern woman he will really marry her. President of US is the role model. If founding father George Washington is still alive, Bill will be kicked out from white house to blue house.

They could afford to waste more if it is not less. I guess they will not blink for sending insects like bamboo army again. I do not doubt that USA is weak in hardware. However commies and Russia have already stolen the stealth jet designs from US manufacturers. Therefore USA is weak in software. US needs more Anti Virus and Cyber security.

PRC is hated in a special way by most of the freedom loving world.

I guess you may come from another planet. Freedom loving world can not resist the market power of PRC. US has given PRC as most favored nation (PNTR). Many in businessmen in Florida and Texas wanted to kiss the boots of PRC regime. Freedom loving nations such as Canada and Australia can not stop selling their gas and minerals to PRC. EU is chasing PRC capital injection for solving their debt crisis.

First I've heard of it. Anyway, from what I know of Canada they are a peaceful country that enjoys a very good relationship with the USA.

Good relationship is irrelevant with Air safety issue. If one nation is taking too much air space, other nation planes have to fly in the congested air route. It is not welcoming and pleasant issue for Canada. For Japan cases, Taiwan and ROK have been left with narrow air route due to large expansion. Japan has no concern about other convenience. It can not cry fool when it has already made other life harder.

Apparently only certain posters have to "stick to the topic". If you are trying to suggest that Obama has communist tendencies then you are preaching to the choir.

This topic is about Air route and congested Air space between Japan and PRC. It is not about the topic of anti communist and PRC is the cruel Saturn of the universe. Above poster has been promoting the personal hatred instead of focusing on topic.

If you are trying to suggest that Obama has communist tendencies then you are preaching to the choir.

Obama was raised in Indonesia during his youth. Although he is not a communist by himself, he is a fan of communal housing, subsided health care and free lunch. He has good heart as Santa Clause. However it will cost the unsustainable mortgage for new generations. The choir has become unpreachable.

The DPRK is in a position of servitude to PRC. That's a long way from actually trusting them.

DPRK leader murdered his own uncle. It is more barbaric. Whether you have trust on PRC or not, PRC has been the largest recipients of foreign investment for many decades. If no one trust PRC, why have they risked billions of dollar for doing business in untrustworthy nation?

If the communists could be trusted (and please point to any nation on Earth who trusts them, if you can) nobody would have a problem with PRC registered planes, ships etc sailing along the boundaries of Japanese territory.

US has trusted Cuba which is the communist nation. If you come and visit Florida, majority of population are Latinos. Some even have no ID. Some have little red books. Some worship the communist idols. However Obama is willing to offer them residency, free food vouchers and discounted health care.

Back to the Air! PRC, Taiwan and Japanese ships have been frequent visiting the overlapping sea lane and air route. .It has been many decades now. Canada has never been happy about US taking too much air space. It is also true for PRC and Japan for making tolerate with each other. If Japan or US is not happy, they have to shoot down one of the plane near the air space. However it will be unlikely during your life time.

They flow above public seas, and there was no violation of our airspace,” he said, declining to release more details about the incident.

Pro J posters can whinge anything they like. However it will not change the reality. Japan is the insecure landlord which can not shut the door of gate. No one own the sky except God. Japan started expand the ADIZ despite protest from Taiwan and ROK. J fighter jets have been harassing Taiwan commercial Airlines for sometimes. Taiwan has not make the big deal about it. Japan has to pay back the Karma which has badly done to Taiwan.

Because that's the only sort of person who would repeatedly post that PRC "isn't communist" as you have done dozens of times on this board.

The definition of communist has commune system which is sharing food, housing and land. In PRC, there is no free lunch and government help for social support like Obama care. PRC is ruled by communists in theory. Reality is they are semi capitalist which is promoting the free enterprise with no hand outs.

In US there are free food vouchers for unemployed people. It is more likely iron rice bowl of Mao era of PRC. US is the capitalist in name only. It has become the old communist nation of PRC.

Emperor Hirohito had fantasy about changing all sex slaves as licensed prostitutes who lived in luxury like Myitkyina of Myanmar. It was rare because luxury amenities and wages needed fortune for Japan which was struggling to foot the bill for war.The goal of brothel stations was reducing the rape case and negative international publicity. However emperor could not afford financially for getting this goal. The rape cases have sky rocketed even there were licensed prostitutes were employed. Supply did not meet the very high demand.

I am afraid you are in no position to say so, unless you are a former comfort woman. In addition, it is not a slap in the face.

I am afraid you are in no position to say so, unless you are a former emperor Hirohito who was portrayed as living divine God. In fact he was a war criminal who has never been charged for his role of WWII. It was because of the convenience for political transition buy US rather than he was innocent as Angle. In addition, changing stand for apology from Japan is worse than a slap in the face because it has portrayed Sex Slaves who gave their evidence as fraudulent con artists.

I do not understand what you mean. Look at this letter from PM Abe approved by his Cabinet to the Speaker of the Upper House, on July 2, 2013 in reply of official inquiry by Upper House member Fukushima Mizuho. http://www.sangiin.go.jp/japanese/joho1/kousei/syuisyo/183/toup/t183144.pdf

Formal apology should be finalized with the whole cabinet including speaker. It should be concluded as Bipartisanship agreement of parliament. At the end, it is up to the Victims for demanding sincere apology or accepting past apology as real remorse for moving on. Instead of saying multiple Sorry and reviewing and revising for getting comfortable excuse is waste of time. Comfort women is issue is not for comfortable topic for both victims and deniers.

Sex Slaves were multi-nationals. Not only old Korean Women. It is doubtful all were willing volunteers for J imperial soldiers for their pleasure. However there were not many left over now. What took it so long for Japan to review and revise if it was doubtful instead of waiting until 2014?

nationalistic Sankei Shimbun daily and Fuji TV, in which 59% of respondents said the apology should be revised.

Japan formal apologies are such a jokes which can be reviewed, revised, disputed and withdrawn. Instead of repetitive revision, Japan should not apologize if it is doubtful that they have been wrongly framed. Anyway past apologies were no longer valid, sincere and credible now. Japan is not remorseful and wish to go back to nationalist era.

Instead of saying sorry and slapping someone face again, it is better for Japan did not say any pointless Sorry at all.

While Abe himself has trodden carefully on the issue since coming to power in December 2012, he triggered uproar during his first stint as prime minister in 2007 when he said there was no evidence Japan directly coerced comfort women.

He has not honored former PM apology and he wished to revise since then.

He later elaborated by saying he was talking of coercion in the “strict” sense, such as kidnapping women.

He used to be flip -flopping what he said! As a decent and dutiful J PM, he should not change the tone like changing the clothes.

I was born and raised in Myanmar. I have never heard about Myanmar or Burmese women were sold by their parents during WWII. They were gang raped by J soliders. It is also true for rest of the comfort women. If there were only Korean women for that topic, your debate may be logical. However majority of Myanmar or Burmese do not buy your propaganda.

In Myanmar, we have Arm Force day (known as revolutionary day in past). Before that days, TV programs and media were awashed with full stories of Japanese imperial soliders atrocities. During WWII, Myanmar people called J soliers as short men (Nga Pu) as nick name of Burmese. Myanmar have been ruled by British for 100 yrs. However British was are nothing barbaric comparing with J imperial arm. According your logic, Myanmar distort thier history heavilty and provide very intensive anti- Japan education.

Japan is rich enough to change the history with Yen. The histoy of that issue fromPhillipines, Taiwan, PRC, ROK, DPRK and most of SE Asian nations versions will be very different from J version.

Australia refugee settlement program is generous for refugee for get ting the free meals, accommodation and free tuition for pursuing higher education.

The sad truth about pampered refugees have become criminals. When they have been settled in community, they assaulted and raped the girls. Australia has become the rapists paradise because of the friendly asylum seekers policy.

In my opinion, Au should deport them back if they have committed crimes. They are ungrateful for welcoming nation.
