The former mayor (who passed away in December, weeks after allowing this statue) was of Chinese descent.

His father fought the Korean War.

It looks like he had an agenda.

Posted in: Japan to consider new document to mark improving ties with S. Korea See in context

Never going to matter.

1-If 0.001% of the S.Korean go against it, the current president will tell Tokyo that the atonement/Money is not enough.

2-The future President (after the current one) will renege on the Treaty and ask for a new one.

This will never end. Let it go and let the Koreans fend for themselves in the future.

Posted in: Japan studying SDF response to Korean Peninsula crisis See in context

The Japanese government has begun discussing how the Self-Defense Forces would respond to a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

Why? Is this why Abe wants to change the Constitution?The Japanese should mind their own business and let the Koreans fight among themselves. Unless their really want the same Koreans to come around and accuse Japan of killing their fellow countrymen and ask for reparations.

Visit for what? Ratify another treaty that will be rescinded in few weeks because the Korean people are not "emotionally" ready to accept it?

Those fake smiles are irritating.

A little background of the Mayor Edwin Mah Lee:

 His parents immigrated to the United States from Taishan, Guangdong Province, China in the 1930s. Lee's father, Gok Suey Lee, fought in the Korean War.

This should explain a lot.

The truth is out.

So Seoul allowed the activists to put the statue back up but plead ignorance when Tokyo decided to recall the diplomats claiming there was nothing they could do to stop said activists.

Beijing has repeatedly urged Japan to show greater repentance for World War Two atrocities and the two sides have a festering territorial dispute in the East China Sea.

Every time the Chinese don't get what they,they feel the need to remind the world of what happened last century.

“China is willing, along with the international community, to fully and completely enforce Security Council resolutions, and opposes unilateral sanctions imposed outside the framework of Security Council resolutions,” China’s Foreign Ministry cited Wu as saying.

Since when? I really needed a good laugh today. I doubts these words were uttered by a Chinese representative.

**>"The blasphemy controversy erupted in September when a video circulated online in which Ahok criticized detractors who argued the Quran prohibits Muslims from having a non-Muslim leader."

“I’ve been called to defend Islam,” she said. “As a Muslim, I feel guilty if I refuse a demand to defend my religion. I believe Ahok insulted the holy Quran and it’s hurt us!

Holly cow! Is this really happening in the 21st century. They just proved Ahok's point with the whole hoopla. If you are not one of us (If you are a christian),you are surely against us.

YubaruSEP. 02, 2016 - 06:58AM JST Nice photo op, BUT it would be even nicer for Japan to accept more of these women and children who are left without spouses or a life as refugees in Japan. Dont just throw money at the problem as Japan is known to typically do, but help them get their lives back! Give them a future!

They don't have to come to Japan to have a future. The Japanese government is already doing a great job donating $1.6 billion to help them in the refugees camps and better their lives in the countries where they belong.
