OMG! Nippon donates 7.5 million USD for harmless and peaceful ballot boxes and gets blitzkrieged while USA and EU sends unsolicited deadly bombs and cruise missiles into Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria and the Human Rights Groups suddenly becomes blind, mute and deaf!
Japan is not sending weapons of mass destruction to Cambodia but only tools needed to safeguard the electoral process.
Why is that bad?

Students across all America should ask Marc Rubio why he is only interested in stopping the killings of criminal druglords and their henchmen in a far away sovereign country outside of his jurisdiction but continues to support the NRA's move to stifle gun control?
It seems little Rubio is more concerned about the welfare of criminals in a foreign land than the school children in his USA.

Lt. Cmnder. Tim Hawkins is right.
The USN will continue patrolling disputed waters just like in the past 70 years to guarantee peace in the region.
Thus thanks to the mighty USA, China was able to miraculously convert badly eroded and submerged reefs into solid island fortress unimpeded while the Carl Vinson and the 7th Fleet stood guard for 5 long years!
It's obvious that Washington and Beijing are silent partners indeed!
What a da-kine bullshot charade!
Just look at what Washington did to democratic Taiwan ! America not only cut off diplomatic ties with 'ally' ROC in favor of the dictatorship communist PRC but also FORCED and ORDERED Japan to follow suit!
Uncle Sam even kicked Taiwan out of the UN in favor of Communist China!
When China was reclaiming islands in the disputed West Philippine Sea not even a shadow of USN ships sailed by !
When Philippine navy ships confronted PLAN ships inside the Philippines territorial waters , not a single USN ship or even a USAF drone showed support but instead instructed the Philippine navy to disengage!
What a da-kine backstabbing 'ally'!

What both Seoul and Pyongyang are doin at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics for the sake of peace is very impressive indeed!

Don't you find Erdogan's pledge to 'clean' the entire Syrian border chillingly genocidal?
Anyways da-kine bullets and bombs and napalm aren't yet equipped with AI to distinguish and evade women and them innocent children!
The previous Bushy Presidency will forever be imprinted in history as the breaker of nations forever after what both have done to Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria .
It would be nice if the Trumpy administration would be known as the builder of new nations instead and America will again be respected all over the world after supporting the births of the Kurdish Republic, Taiwan Naruwan Republic and the Ryukuan Republic.
The so-called UN Special Rapporteurs like Dr. Agnes Callamard on the other hand should investigate extrajudicial killings by Erdogan's henchmen in the Syrian border and the Kurdish Republic instead of being the flamboyant stooge of wealthy oligarch in Burma and the PH.

Abe can order 100 more such museums to be built as he pleases but he never can change the basic truth .
Though the USA have backstabbed the democratic Naruwan Republic of Taiwan many times it's notable and fortunate that America have da-kine retained some of the basic values such as fairness.
Washington knows that geography and geology and proximity to Taiwan plus the solid cultural evidence of the Taiwanese burial grounds ( US servicemen saw it first hand when those rocks were still USAF practice bombing targets) scattered all over Tiauyutai points to Taiwanese ownership , Old Uncle Sam therefore will never officially simply say that TYT/Senkakus belongs to Japan.
My bad, Abe can never force Americans to betray their own moral standards on this issue because even though Taiwan is a very small island nation America's very broad and strong and very deep moral standard with regards to truth and fairness remains as big as the State of Texas.
-5 ( +0 / -5 )
Japan's contradicting statements regarding the Tiauyutai rocks is the strongest evidence that those islands were snatched away from Taiwan and then illegally occupied by Tokyo.
First , Abe's government stated that the TYT/Senkakus are an 'inherent' or 'indegenous' part of Japan.
Second, Tokyo then based their claim by sayin they first explored the islands and found it to be terra nullius so they claimed it knowing that Taiwan and China were weaklings then and didn't have the voice and power to resist.
The USA of course is aware of this very fact so it's not surprising that Uncle Sam will never officially say that that Nippon have sovereignty over the Taiwanese islets.
This is a fact that Tokyo should face squarely and not deny and deny again and again.
As a matter of fact , Abe should instruct the museum to also include the USA's official stand and not try to fool the world.
Using deceit would only be like Japan shooting her own foot.

To make whaling more profitable and safer for the crews and scientists why not convert the Izumo into a super whaling ship?
It could accommodate all the whales of the world and do the canning on board simultaneously with the, ahem, scientific eating... err... whale research!
Moreover , no Greenpeace ships would dare ram it!

The Amerikan colonizer of Okinawa is subtly and cleverly preparing the Ryukyuans to be desensitized to such military related events.
Unlike the VN war when the Vietcongs cannot retaliate and hit Naha with missiles, any Amerikan wars now involving troops and planes from the giant military bases will certainly invite corresponding attacks hitting not only military targets but also massive civilian abodes, hospitals and schools.
Therefore the pre-war psychological process is now very evident .

Abe can open as many such museums as fast as how South Korea erects 'Comfort Women' statues but it still cannot match the 'living' museum Taiwan have to confirm their claim on TYT isles.
This natural museum is free for everyone to see and consists of the very solid evidence represented by the geographical connection of the insular shelves of Taiwan's Datong mountain range and the Tiauyutai rocks. The flora and fauna as well as the geologic nature are similar.
Moreover, tombs of ancient fishermen from Ilan and Keelung are scattered all over the island groups . Japan destroyed the burial grounds of the Chang and Su families while pretending to build a lighthouse there but there are still too many inside caves and large crevasses that it's impossible for Governor Shintaro Ishihara's posse to destroy all.
Meanwhile it's rumored that most of the men that desecrated the tombs all suffered from incurable diseases including Ishihara now.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan --to limit --his forces' assault against a Kurdish enclave in northern Syria, the White House said.
What a funny man this Trumpy is!
How the hell can Erdogan limit his attack if his aim is to destroy the Kurds?
By telling Turkiye to use a slingshot? Lol!
Amerika should act like America and support the ally Kurds in establishing their very own Kurdish Republic and immediately establish diplomatic relations with them stat!
The great USA should not repeat what they did to allies ROC-Taiwan and the ROP (Philippines) , both of which Washington totally abandoned in their confrontation vs China.
Heck, Uncle Trumpy even erased, deleted, vanished the da-kine ROC flag in the State Department's website just so recently .
Abe should exercise caution in dealing with the Amerikan double crossers!

The Kurdish YPG fighters must be asking themselves a question regarding their Amerikan ally.
With the full might of Turkiye's army now on their very doorsteps , they must be like my bad, will Trump turn into a Rambo and kick Erdogan's azz or instantly become escape artist Ran-bo?
0 ( +2 / -2 )
Actually, the whole world is focusing not on Turkiye but on how the greatest super power Amerika will do.
Will Uncle Sam protect the loyal Kurdish YPG fighters against this Turkish onslaught?
Or abandon them like what Washington did to ally ROC-Taiwan and the Philippines when both were facing the PRC?
It seems the USA have a habit of double crossing ' allies' and even squat on their lands against their will just like in da-kine Okinawa which as a result of Amerikan occupation is now known as the Crimea of Asia.
The question now is will G. I. Joe act like a true ally to the sovereign Kurdish Nation and fight for them , or once again flee and totally abandon them?

Yasukuni is not in front of ROK embassy nor any other diplomatic representative offices.
I hope Japan should know by then that the bad feelings evoked by these da-kine statues on Tokyo is reciprocally proportional to the emotions when South Koreans see Yasukuni Shrine and multiplied 100X when Nippon government officials 'pray' at the Shrine.
