Posted in: Chinese delegation barred from queen's coffin See in context

The Chinese should be barred from as many things as possible by the Western Bloc. The UK should bar China from the Queen’s funeral, but let Taiwan attend. The US should stop accepting hundreds of thousands of Chinese students from attending US universities. Keep them out! China needs to be sent the message they are seen in the same light as Iran, and Russia, a world pariah!

Posted in: Japan to remove entry cap in 'not-so-distant future,' official says See in context

Yes PLEASE open up except for the Chinese!! Make them continue to have to get a visa. For the rest of the G7 countries please get back to normal with no visas needed. Remember Visa Waiver?

Posted in: Japan to cut COVID isolation period to speed up economic recovery See in context

It is time to join the rest of the world and get back to normal. This is ridiculous at this point. Open up the borders so tourists can come without a VISA, which discourages anyone from coming. If we want the economy to improve let tourism return to normal. Until it does, the economy is going no where. In addition we are a signatory to the Visa Waiver Program, and presently not abiding by it. Let’s stop this nonsense and get back to normal!

Posted in: 72% of survey respondents say border controls reason for not visiting Japan See in context

For God sake follow what other G7 nations do. Go back to the Visa Waiver Program Japan is in violation of. Would the citizens of Japan like to be forced to get a visa to visit another country? I don’t think so, but should be made to unless Japan goes back to Visa Waiver and joins the world once again! Your entry policies are draconian.

Posted in: Japan eyes lifting of pre-departure COVID tests for inbound vaccinated travelers: media See in context

Time for Japan to open up and follow what the G7 and USA are doing as far as letting people enter Japan. Japan is a signatory to the Visa Waiver program and is not following such now. The USA and all G7 members should tell Japan that unless you start following the conditions of the Visa Waiver Program, they are going to demand visas from Japanese visiting their countries. That I think would expedite Japan once again following Visa Waiver. If you want proof of vaccination and boosters fine, but follow what other industrialized democracies are doing.

Time for Japan to open up and join the rest of the world. What happened to their participation in the Visa Waiver Program? If we need a visa to visit Japan, the USA and other countries need to expect the same from Japanese citizens visiting the USA and other countries.

Posted in: Japanese junior high school girl removed from class for three days for grooming her eyebrows See in context

What is it about conformity in Japanese society? I don’t understand it, and find it oppressive. If a student wears their hair differently, or grooms their eyebrows so what? Does everyone need to look like each other? Let people be individuals and be accepting of individuality.

Posted in: If toys become gender neutral, it will contribute to an expanding market and children will be able to learn about gender equality through toys. See in context

What is this insane focus on gender and gender equality? This woke nonsense needs to stop. Let children be children and learn as they mature. We never had this absurdity when I was younger. I learned what I needed to learn, and respect everyone regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. Enough is enough!

Posted in: Okinawa urges dropping base transfer plan ahead of 50th return anniversary See in context

I understand the desires of the Okinawans in regard to our bases. Why the concentration on Okinawa I don’t understand. You would think scattering them over the rest of Japan would make better sense. Part of the problem relates to lack of foresight by the US after WWII. Many Americans died taking Iwo Jima and then Okinawa. After the war civilians on both islands should have been removed to one of the other main Japanese islands. The US should have kept both islands as permanent military installations and part of the US. Had that happened this conversation would not be occurring. Total lack of foresight and planning.

Posted in: Many countries require passengers from overseas to take PCR tests for the coronavirus upon arrival at airports, even though they have taken one three days before their departure? Do you think PCR tests upon arrival should be abolished? See in context

It is time to get back to normal and open up Japan. I do feel no one should be admitted if they cannot show proof of two vaccinations and a booster.

Posted in: Russians start feeling the heat of Ukraine war sanctions See in context

I am an American. Putin the butcher and his cronies need to be stopped. The targeting of innocent civilians is a war crime. The UN needs to do it’s job and send a peacekeeping force in made up of many nations to oppose the Russian butchers. Aggression needs to be stopped as soon as it raises it’s ugly head. Putin may have nukes, but so does the US and NATO. No one wants a nuclear exchange, but the fear of such cannot deter the rest of the world from doing what is right!

It is time the free nations of the world hold China, the CCP, and dictator Xi accountable for being the planets bully. Time for a bloody nose Xi and a swollen lip! Time for my country to recognize Taiwan as independent country and not part of China. Come and try to take Taiwan Xi and see what happens. You will be running back to the mainland with your tail between your legs! We have had enough of you.

Posted in: Kishida says enemy base strike capability an option to boost defense See in context

It is time for Japan to amend it’s constitution on having an offensive military capability. This is not post WWII. Japan needs to be able to project offensive military capability to it’s enemies in the region. The best defense is a credible offense. Expenditures on the Japanese military capability need to increase three to four fold. As an American, and former military officer, the USA will always be there to defend Japan, but that job will be much easier if Japan has a viable offensive capability. That capability needs to reflect 21st century reality, which is a far cry from what it was 30 plus years ago!

Posted in: Japan starts accepting requests for eased COVID quarantine rule See in context

For God sake open up the country!! Your tourism industry is dying. You have just over 100 cases in the entire country. I can see demanding proof of vaccination, and limiting entry to fully vaccinated individuals. The quarantine mandate is nonsensical at this point if one is fully vaccinated. Why do you always have to make things difficult?

I am an American, and have no regard or respect for Dr. Fauci. He changes his message constantly. Rand Paul is a physician, so not your typical Senator. I do not believe anything Fauci says anymore, and if you are smart neither will you!!

Posted in: Deputy defense minister says it is necessary to 'wake up' to protect Taiwan See in context

As an American I can state that we cannot let Taiwan fall to the Chinese Communist Party. I fully agree that my country needs to recognize Taiwan as an independent country. The full force of the US military must be used to prevent a communist takeover. My government needs to make it perfectly clear to China, that the US will come to the defense of Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack. The current ambiguity of our potential actions only encourages Chinese aggression. China cannot afford a war with the US which it will lose. China and Russia are bullies, and bullies do not stop until they are given a bloody nose. The same with the Ukraine. NATO needs to make Ukraine a member. Japan would be wise to sharply increase it’s defense spending. Make no mistake about it, Japan could be devastated in a conflict between China and the US. It needs to take the necessary steps now to make itself a viable military force against China. Peace can only be achieved through strength.

Posted in: Biden to return diverted border wall money See in context

Biden has let all Americans down, BUT he is not in control. His left wing progressive advisers tell him what to do. His campaign was a series of lies, and I am a Democrat. Any country that cannot or will not control it’s borders, cannot secure the people living in those borders. He has turned the border over to smugglers, the drug cartels, and thugs. He is safe on the White House, but what about Americans who live on the border? He is a one term President, and he has turned the US House and Senate over to the Republicans in 2022. He duped many of us in 2020, but won’t again!!!

Posted in: Scholar learns remains of Tojo, other war criminals scattered in Pacific See in context

With the cruelty demonstrated by the Japanese military in WWII, I am surprised more Japanese officials were not tried and executed. What happened in Nanking, the Philippines, and throughout Asia was a crime against humanity. How the Japanese treated their captives was criminal in itself. To P. Smith who commented on Hiroshima and Nagasaki realize this. As terrible as the bombs were, they saved up to a million American lives and millions of Japanese lives. The bombs ended the war. Had an invasion been necessary the carnage of Iwo Jima and Okinawa would pale in comparison. Remember Japan started the war. It was up to the US to end it.

Posted in: Japan ruling party seeks big defense budget rise amid China threat See in context

Make no mistake about it, China will not stop until it is the dominant Asian power. When they feel they are strong enough they will move against Tawain, preceded by a possible strike on US military installations in Asia to blunt a US response. Japan would be wise to invest heavily in it’s military NOW. There will be no time to play catch-up when the shooting starts, as it will. Japan needs to be able to mount a viable defense on it’s own, as does S. Korea. The only language China understands is force. When met with a military force exceeding their capability they will back down. The US, Japan, S. Korea and other allies better prepare NOW.

Let’s cut through the never ending bureaucracy and get vaccines in people’s arms!!! As in the USA, nurses and pharmacists along with physicians should be vaccinating people. The Japanese medical societies who are more interested in protecting their turf than public health need to be called on the carpet if they oppose the above.
