Posted in: Japanese tourist says guide in India raped her See in context

Japan needs India as a partner for the future. They aren't going to make a big fuss about the actions of some individuals, when you have China going around trying to rape entire countries.

So you're saying they should just turn a blind eye? Like they do in Okinawa? You should be a bit more careful when you use the term "rape" as a figure of speech here, because Japan and India can literally be examples of countries where rape is a problem.

Posted in: Abe pledges to resolve island dispute with Russia See in context

Resolve the island dispute with Russia. Resolve the island dispute with Korea. Don't resolve the island dispute with China because there is no island dispute to begin with.

Makes sense much...

Posted in: More than 8,700 people sue Asahi Shimbun over 'comfort women' stories See in context

I just can't believe that there are professors, lawyers, journalists, teachers, and etc that actually believe in this revisionist, whitewashing view of their history. These professionals are supposedly the "educated" ones out of the entire population. Then again, their education on this part of their history is already questionable to begin with. If they believe this, what do you think the masses in Japan believe? I have a feeling they're not the minority, despite what some apologists would say.

It's a dangerous path they're headed to. They've done this before, but the only difference is that their neighbors are a little bit more ready for it.

Posted in: Abe fighting against time to find way to free hostages See in context

If the hostages will be executed, it would be a huge tragedy. An even bigger tragedy would be if they will use this tragedy to further certain agendas.

Posted in: Japan asks U.S. publisher to change 'sex slave' reference in textbook See in context

"Why should Japan demonize it's own in their own country? FINE! "Why do countries like China and Korea keep looking at the past, instead of the future? FINE! But people should start asking, "Why is Japan now trying to spread their interpretation of history outside of their country now?" or "Why does Japan also keeping on looking at the past by constantly bringing up the revising of historical facts?"

Posted in: Why is Japan such an unpopular tourist destination? See in context

The main reasons I guess would be: 1.) Japan is more expensive than other parts of Asia. 2.) Many international tourists are from Asia (especially China and Korea) and you know the drama. 3.) Strictly speaking of the Hospitality and Tourism industry, you have to cater to the customers. Japan does better in catering the domestic tourists than they do to the international ones. Before anyone says "Why should the Japanese be the ones to do the effort in, for example, speaking a foreign language for foreign tourists in their own country?!?!", I want to you to think clearly about the context of what we're discussing here: tourism.

Posted in: Australians reject siding with Japan against China in island dispute: survey See in context

No one can say what happened to the Yuan dynasty DNA. I'm thinking it is still highly prevalent in the CCP.

Even during the Yuan Dynasty, the majority of the people didn't have Mongol genes. In fact, Japanese are more closely related to the Mongols by blood.

It's kind of funny. What does the CCP have anything to do with this? Or democracies? Did you even read the article? Australians prefer to be neutral, and you're angry at them for it? This is what happens when you're too obsessed with a specific country or entity, all reason is lost.

Posted in: China launches website on disputed islands See in context

What about the declassified information the British has released that actually backs China's argument? PM Thatcher and PM Suzuki had a meeting where Suzuki admitted that both China and Japan agreed to shelve DISPUTES about the Diayou/Senkaku Islands to focus on common interests (and using that point as an advice to Thatcher on how to possibly make an agreement with China on the Hong Kong situation, which was still under the British rule at that time). This information proves that there were/are disputes, while Abe's Japan says there are no/were never any disputes.

If the Chinese are lying about this, then that means the British are lying about this as well. It's either that or the Chinese somehow secretly placed false information in old British archives. As stupid as that sounds, I'm sure some people in the comments section are more than capable of thinking that.

Terrible news. I hope she recovers and gets justice.

Posted in: China drives growth in patent applications worldwide See in context

And how many of these inventions are not stolen in some form considering China's recent track record?

-Well, if that were the case, then shouldn't WIPO reject it? I'm pretty sure they've rejected many, but the recent 1/3 applications were accepted.
