These people want change but what is their alternative? These people should get a job. If some of them do have one, they should ask their CEOs, how much of their companies revenues are coming through Chinese trade.

Klein? are you serious? That the price controls in China is due to food storages? I suggest you start getting news from other sources other than the chat forum on Japan Today. Either you are very uninformed or you are mssing a few screws in your head.

Can someone please tell me what these people are protesting about?

That China is not a democracy? Well it appears that Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia are communist states, Myanmar are ruled by a military junta, Brunei is ruled by a monarch with numerous wives.

Or is it about China is getting too economically strong? Or is it about the dispute about a few rocks in the middle of Timbucktoo?

I agree with some that the poor kids been dragged to this demostration do not have a clue other than been "brain-washed" into thinking that the Chinese are bad. Seeds of hatred are been planted and it is a damn shame.

The yaks aren't as stupid to put bodies in drums and leave it in a rental parking space. Yaks would either chop up the bodies or dump the drums in the ocean. Sounds like this guy simply had so means of dumping the bodies. How stupid of this guy.

<Go outside a few of the big cities in China and its like stepping out of a time machine into the 19th century.>

That is very scary and to think that the US already owes China $1 trillion. Imagine what the figure will be when these 19th century people move into the 20th or 21st century.

Bowing is a sign of respect. It has nothing to do with not being proud. If only most Americans understand this simple idea.

Posted in: What do you think about Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's proposal to create an East Asian community, to promote what he calls fraternity in the region? See in context

<Whatever the cause of the demographics the result is the same>

China's problems is easier to fix as long as its gov't decides to end the one child policy, which they have started to. China's one child policy is not etched in stone. It is strictly a policy developed years ago to control its population when the country was dirt poor. Now that it is a little more prosperous, it can loosen this policy.

On the other hand, the Japanese have tried everything except throwing the kitchen sink at the problem and still people are relucant to have more than 1.31 babies. The fundamental problem with Japan is that people want a bigger family but the economics of it simply prevents it.

Posted in: What do you think about Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's proposal to create an East Asian community, to promote what he calls fraternity in the region? See in context

Wow, many greats comments back and forth. Stimulating discussion. The idea floated by Hatoyama is a step in the right direction for Japan. Japan needs to realize the new reality in the world. The 21st century belongs to BRIC countries. The sooner Japan attaches itself to these countries the more beneficial it is for Japan. However, the only and possibly the biggest stumbling block is Japan has not fully repented their role in WW2. Until this issue is resolved, the East Asia community means no more than the paper it is or will be signed on.

This is the cold reality of the modern globalized world. Japanese students need to realize that simply graduating from Todai, Waseda, or Keio means less than before.

Posted in: Obama confronts an Asia reshaped by China's rise See in context

know you don't want to hear this but China is a huge country with internal deomgraphics (large minority populations) that have led to problems with the country falling apart (only to reintegrate). Those issues haven't been settled and may never be settled. Taiwan, Tibet, Inner Mongolia, Uighurs, Hong Kong? Is this not why scholars argue deomcracy doesn't work for China? Was this not the theme of "Hero"?>

China is over 90% Han chinese and Buddist, which is probably the most non violent religion known to man so I am not sure how China will implode from this angle.

One doesn't need to be an expert to assert the obvious, so you're saying China hasn't imploded and reformed numerous times in it's history? All those changes of dynasties went smoothly?>

stating the obvious? Please stop embrassing yourself. What country hasn't gone through civil war and internal strife? So French is going to have another revolution? The US another civil war? Blacks in the US will be slaves again?

Funny how everyone is a China expert here. I know this is an open forum but seriously please have some logic and facts to back up one's statements. Otherwise it will be like sitting in an lecture with a pre-school toddler trying to lecture about Nuclear Phyics.

USA will implode and break apart into several different countries eventually. Ones in the East and West will thrive but those in the other parts of the country will turn into places like Canada and Mexico. The country cannot continue on its path of major inequalities in life style and incomes.

Posted in: China pledges $10 bil funds, aid to Africa See in context

In my view, China's approach to Africa is more of equal footing. China through the past and now has shown the Africans sincerity and respect. On the other hand, the west may have given billions more in aid but looking back at history much more was taken.
