That hosting of a foreign minister into the Oval office office was a victory lap for Putin. He personally insisted the meeting happens there and Trump said OK Sir. Poor Merkel.

Trying to hold Trump to same standards and expectations as Obama is gonna be really hard. Ignorance vs Intelligence.

This Trump of the East thinks drugs are the only problems of the Philippines. Was supposed to visit that country but I cancelled because it wasn't that urgent. He should check the drop in tourism after six months on office.

Now we are told it was Michele who plaglarised. Melania had written this speech long ago for this purpose and it was stolen in 2008

Another reason why I love living in Japan. No crazy gun trotting lunatic gets to kill so many. Keep your freedom to your yourself in the States. We love it here. At least here, the worst will be a knife. Can't maim that many

Thunderbird2, Modern wars are not fought with numbers. So don't believe so much in the numbers of weapons China display. Japans military is one of the most technologically advanced in the world. They just don7t talk as loud as China

And the questions you the protesters refuse to hear are quoted once again;Looking at Senkaku, South China Sea, North Korea, is Japan safer now than before? Does doing nothing and just screaming 'Peace' makes all these aggressive neighbors fold up and vanish? What should Japan do if an ally's vessel comes under attack near Japan? look on unconcerned because its not a J vessel? By hating the US military this much, why do you wanna clink on to a US - imposed constitution so much? Do you expect allies to help when Japan's interest here or abroad comes under attack?

No, its the next generation who will enjoy the safety of this selfless act of Abe. And the questions you the protesters refuse to hear are quoted once again;Looking at Senkaku, South China Sea, North Korea, is Japan safer now than before? Does doing nothing and just screaming 'Peace' makes all these aggressive neighbors fold up and vanish? What should Japan do if an ally's vessel comes under attack near Japan? look on unconcerned because its not a J vessel? Do you expect allied like US, Australia to help if and when Japan comes under attack? Do you expect allies to help when Japan's interest here or abroad comes under attack?
If any one could answer these, then I will post the next question. For now, these are enough.

Posted in: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the proposed new security legislation would allow Japan’s military to defend its allies even when Japan isn’t under attack, work more closely with its allies, and do mor See in context
Sangetsu03, Your comment is interesting (Japan is in the unique position in that America is required to defend Japan from military attack) Why should The US protect Japan when Japan will watch unconcerned when an American ship is attacked near Japan? This is where those shouting 'Peace' dont get it. Peace isn't free. And don't expect that because you say 'peace', irresponsible nations will not threaten you. Look at what common Chinese fishing boats do to the J coast guards.

Ask these protesters why people put stickers of ALSOK and the likes at their homes and offices. Anyone who can answer that wouldn't be doing this needless protest.

You guys think just shouting 'peace' means every other potential aggressor will go away. Look at what is happening at tge south china sea. You are not dealing with a rational partner. They dont give a sh*t about international order. Thats why a deterrent is needed. You only wanna leave your protection to the goodwill(if they ever had one in the first place) of a threatening neighbor. We put ALSOK sign at our homes etc for for a purpose

What will these protesters say when china finally comes for senkaku and Okinawa. Crying "no war" is cool and sexy but they should look at the reality. No country can defend itself alone. Seriously what is needed now is for NK to throw us some candy down here. Then the protesters will realize their stupidity.

Chinese commentators out here, pls clarify these two for me:Does the apology has to be made continuously? Doesn't one apology hold enough water? Why does it have to be made everyday? Doesn't that render the previous ones useless? When did Abe, or any Japanese cabinet make any resolution to cancel the previous ones? and maybe one last question, draft your ideal apology note here and I will have Abe read and act it verbatim. Yours, A person close to Abe

I think most sane countries should issue official and strong warning to their citizens; AVOID INDONESIA at all cost. If you still have to go, extreme care is necessary to prevent drugs being planted on you.

See the double standard here. You can visit China seven times more than Japan but you can't tell the Chinese to join in your pursuit of sanctions again Putin. You can easily tell Japan to sanction Putin though. Because you are afraid to tell the truth to China because of they won't buy your cars. I wish Japan can choose what is best for it instead of following this double standard message. I don't dispute Ukraine but all must be called to play a part in building a better world. Not give China the easier pass.

What most people miss is the fact that the exposed and educated muslims don't do these murders. Its done by the poor and uneducated ones. And those with mental issues. We are supposed to keep quite. Keeping quite won't solve any problem. Lets talk, draw and discuss it in the open.

@sfjp330 Maybe you should read some economic magazines. China is suffering from the nearly 40% drop in Japanese investment in China. They need the yen badly. Its Japan that find find cheaper sources of products from other Asian nations.

bass and friends, why didn't you implement travel ban on at least China during the SARS period? Lets look at whose side science is. Not short term political gains and deep hatred which you guys wanna spread to every single issue. Remember H1N1 killed more than 12,000 Americans and yet still, there was no ban on anyone
