The more politicians realise they are not untouchable, the better Japan will be. I hope the press keeps this up and holds them to account.

@flowers - so to be the objective outsider you purport to be, perhaps you'd care to list China's transgressions too. Nah, thought not. Nice try but it's pretty easy to see through you.

Pathetic to see the 'My party right or wrong' rhetoric again and again from certain posters here. Dumb Republicans (though not all are dumb) just don't understand democracy and rule of law or even their own constitution. Anyone who doesn't agree with them is somehow a liberal. It's like the Communist paranoia of the 1960s.

"A woman holds an anti-U.S. President Trump placard...Hillary fan that another 'dislike' failed candidate?!

Another typically simplistic comment on this topic. You don't have to be a Hillary supporter to be against Trump and fear the damage he's going to do to the USA.

Bullies like Trump can give it out but can't take it. He's a spoiled class brat who grew up getting daddy to protect him and then as an adult used daddy's money to buy a platoon of lawyers for protection - from himself and anyone who challenged him.

He's following in the age old traditions the elite class have always had.

Spot on. And his dumb supporters believed he was the anti-establishment ticket. Laughable.

Posted in: Trump: Only 'stupid' people, fools oppose better Russia ties See in context

Trump invited Russia to hack computers in the US and he calls that making America great again. Putin is playing Trump, who is either too stupid to know better or is putting business interests in Russia before the democracy of the USA. Making America great again? Pull the other one...

Trump is right in casting doubts about the globalism. We should not accept globalism without examining carefully about its influences.

Eh? Trump casting doubts about globalism? He has 150 companies operating in 25 countries. He bragged about paying almost zero tax in the USA. We should not accept what Trump says without holding our nose and examining carefully the BS he comes out with.

Posted in: Trump's praise of Putin could signal a new day for U.S. policy See in context

And yet it's not even been 8 weeks since Trump's election and we're watching him explicitly support a foreign leader over the American people, and all the people who spent all those 8 years braying about the doom of Obama don't have a single cross word to say about it. It really lets you see just what their feigned patriotism really is.

Yup. Party before country - my party right or wrong - is the dogma of these overzealous Republicans. Play down a foreign power interfering with their democracy? Sure, because Trump's making America great again.

Encourage more companies to relocate to outside the Yamanote Line or the suburbs. Encourage more take up of flextime in companies so that commuters are not all trying to reach their offices by 8am or 8.30am.

Posted in: Trump praises Putin for not expelling U.S. diplomats See in context

Trump's going to sell the USA down the river and it won't matter to him because he's a plutocrat. He pays little to no US tax but makes billions from business deals around the world. He has no real stake in the USA. The saddest thing is that the thousands who voted for him did so because they believed he was anti-establishment. Anti-establishment? A billionaire who pays little to no tax? Yeah right.

Posted in: S Korean politicians call for nullifying sex slave deal with Japan See in context

Japan paid compensation dcades ago to a country that routinely murdered its political opponents. Heading that country was the current president's father. Korea should look at itself and accept that reparations have been made. But then modern Korea has ignored the settlement in the 1960s so it' no surprise that the nationalists are ignoring the current settlement.

Posted in: Supporters defend Trump in wake of tax revelations See in context

The most embarrassing thing for the Republican Party regarding this whole Trump debacle is the length some Democrats will go to to defend him, not least on here. If it was Abe losing money and dodging taxes, those very same peole would be tearing him to shreds. But no, Trump's a Republican so he must be defended at all costs.

Dumb and dumber.

Posted in: Trump: Japanese will 'watch Sony TV' if U.S. is attacked See in context

Trump has no clue about the nuances of foreign policy and only thinks in terms of money. His comments - and actions if elected - will only speed Japan into changing the constitution and arming up to defend itself. With the USA showing reluctance in the region, China will grab its chance to seize and militarize more disputed islands, and will deploy miltary vessels in the South China Sea. With less US support for countries like the Philippines, they will partner even more with Japan.

Japan and China will clash - skirmishes at first - and there will be a war with China. All accompanied by a global economic slump.

America, be very careful what you wish for.

14 years in Japan and never been stopped. I even got reprimanded by a policeman for crossing the road against the traffic signal right opposite a koban but he didn't ask for any ID, just said don't do it again.

Saw a Trump supporter/correspondent on TV trying to justify why tennis balls and lightbulbs were banned within a certain area of a Trump convention while AK47 assault rifles weren't. She said, Because people won't throw an AK47.

Lol, Trump's sure got some real dumb supporters out there.

Posted in: Export curbs in line with WTO rules, says China See in context

We've seen them restrict rare earths before. This is an obvious reaction to the recent ruling against China on its illegal activities in the South China Sea. Time to kick China out of the WTO or impose sanctions. The more the world sucks on the teet of Chinese money, the more it exposes itself to these situations.

Posted in: Teamwork See in context

So much for China's efforts to make the world think that all of Asia hates Japan. The reality is that most victims of Japan's imperial aggression 70 years ago, like the Philippines are welcoming Japan's participation in maintaining the peace, security and stability of East Asia on all levels. Sorry China but it's you that's acting like Imperial Japan, but then that's what dictatorships do. South China Sea 2016 = Manchuria 1937. China is the one that needs to learn from history.

Absolutely spot on.

Don't be surprised about the iPhone thing. China even allows Chinese companies to register (steal) established global brand names and trademarks, including the oldest guitar company in the world, Martin guitars. It's shameless. And the world (WTO, etc) let's these jokers get away with it?!
