Not surprising. I bet that the threat of not renewing the GSOMIA was in the first place, just a bluff made in the hope of American interventions on the ROK side.

Good. It isn't in the interest of the Japanese nation to have any bilateral deals/agreements with a nation seems to have the hobby of terminating them on a whim, like the ROK.

From the taxpayers. This means you, if you live in Japan.
I'm sure that monarchy had been in place long before you've migrated to Japan, Chip Star. Quite baffled as to why you're complaining over it since I bet that nobody had ever forced you to move to the country.

This kind of neighbourly threat is exactly why Japan need a proper military, without the limitation currently imposed on its offensive capabilities (i.e nukes, ballistic missiles, aircraft carriers) as deterrent.

America wouldn't step in and help if Japan instigated it.
Then all the more reason for Japan to remilitarise. Even as little as 2 percents of its GDP spent on the military anually will already suffice for Japan to surpass the Russian's.
Let us say that PM Abe will succeed next year in ammending the increasingly less relevant Japan's constitution and green light the mass productions of offensive weaponries over the next 10-20 years, I doubt that you'll still regard Japan as not a match of the Russians by then, let alone the South Koreans.

Japan is fast becoming a low-wage, poor, and bankrupt third world country.
This is quite an overstatement, especially coming from a person with a name that sounds like having originated from that overpopulated nation that can barely feed its populace.
Abe san needs to invest in Japan to create good paying jobs and raise the standard of living in Japan in order to boost tax revenues, increase marriage rate and child birth rate.
What are you expecting here, Raju? Japan is a highly litterate nation with heavy emphasis on education. Unlike India, the women in Japan doesn't start birthing children at 15 years old, you know.
