This guy Mori is hilarious, pretty sure Kishda and Biden want to treat him to some sushi (laced with cyanide).

Same old story as when Chiang K'ai-shek played with US money while fighting and then losing to Mao in China, then got rewarded with more US support in Taiwan.

Another elephant in the room- today's Japan is largely a product of what occurred in the postwar era, i.e. the funding and founding of the LDP by another country...facts that are too hard to swallow for many.

Well yes just turn away and watch another Hollywood superhero movie.

This puts the USA in bad light yet again, and what's worse is they are unable to come up with any effective solutions.

Yes in fact Japanese citizens did protest and demonstrate en mass in the 60's to show their opposition to US bases on their soil as they feared it would actually destabilize the region and bring Japan into the crosshairs, which it has and has necessitated the rearming of Japan.

Posted in: Ex-Japan defense chief Kishi to quit soon; by-election eyed in April See in context

Here again we see the perpetuation of US proxy yes men in Kishi Nobuo's son, all started when the US released Kishi Nobusuke from Sugamo prison in 1948 who with US support became prime minister despite the fact that he signed the declaration of war against the US in 1941 and implemented the slave labor policies in Manchuria which led to the deaths and misery of countless individuals.

Kishida such a transparent clown playing the Hiroshima card if you really mean it you could have said it to Biden's face.

Building a runway or base, is NOT handing over sovereignty.

No way to hand something over if you haven't actually had it from the start.,, LDP was made by the US to begin with.

@Ossan

Their goals are the same because the US made sure that Japan falls under their "sphere of influence" by reinstating war criminals to power who had no choice but to adopt pro-US policies, similar to how US authorities empowered those Koreans who had collaborated with the Japanese military during Japan's occupation of the peninsula (1910-1945) in the post-war era, and ditto for mafia associate Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan....a lot of back room deals dirty money, dirty actions (in 1960 Socialist candidate Asanuma was assassinated while giving a speech on live television), and very often against the popular sentiment of the people.

Still living in the distant past. Those responsible are dead and gone.

Yes if course the US went to all that trouble so that their means of control would simply evaporate with the passing of people like Kishi Nobusuke yeah right, more like the whole LDP was financed by Uncle Sam and still on the payroll through sales of arms etc and the huge network passed from Kishi to Abe to Kishida ... more than a little obvious they are kicking up the intensity of cooperation have u read the news recently lol

@Peter14

But do not be surprised that support for China is many miles behind support for the US as in comparison

Yes when you install a country's government by freeing war criminals such as Abe's grandfather to do your bidding (in South Korea they reinstated to power those elite who had worked together with Japans imperial governmmet during Japan's occupation of the peninsula 1910-1945) and co-profit through sales of missiles, jet fighters etc. then yes you will have the "support" that you speak of while simultaneously antagonizing those i.e. China who suffered at the hands of those war criminals lol ... after being invaded in the 19th and 20th centuries by the western powers and Japan they're not going to sit back and watch passively as the US builds up its arms in Japan, South Korea etc. , it was only too obvious after Abe came into power in 2012 and immediately ordered raising the military budget to record highs while concurrently whitewashing the school history books etc. along with building huge missile related installations in South Korea.

Yes along with South Korea (when a pro-US president is in office) and Taiwan...now all-too-obvious and impossible to deny regardless of how much deflection/downvoting or spin is put into the media.

Posted in: UK, Japan sign defense agreement allowing troop deployments See in context

The below confirms the US strategy for utilizing Japan-

[ if Japan shoulders most of the burden of its defense while America provides the alliance’s striking arm—then U.S. forces will enjoy a sanctuary from which to prosecute combat operations in Taiwan’s vicinity. Sanctuary is oftentimes a pivotal ingredient of victory in a hard-run conflict. You try to create it for yourself while denying it to antagonists. ]

Beck was friends with Hendrix and they performed together. Before Hendrix, most rock guitar players concentrated on a similar style and technical vocabulary. Hendrix blew that apart.

“He came along and reset all of the rules in one evening,” Beck told Guitar World.

Yes.

The funny thing is Hendrix was ignored in America and only gained recognition after a British promoter brought him to the UK.

Because the US intends for Japan to take the majority of the load and subsequent casualties when the battle for Taiwan goes down.

Posted in: When they hear that Japan does have the death penalty, British people are very shocked because they think that Japan is a democratic, harmonious, sort of sympathetic and sophisticated society. And the death penalty sits very badly with that image. See in context

Anyone who does thei due diligence will come to realize that at the end of the day Japan remains very undemocratic in certain key aspects due to what occurred during the post war era, i.e. releasing war criminals and reinstating them to power (i.e. Abe's grandfather)...they killed millions during the war so had little compunction about keeping the death penalty.

The US thinktank CSIS assumes Japan would be a direct combatant fighting alongside US forces in Taiwan conflict taking heavy casualties according to its war game.

This has been the US' intention after their mafia related boy Chiang Kai shek unexpectedly lost China to Mao and had to be shuttled to Taiwan.

After the weapons build up starts get ready for more taxes, and if you are Japanese or married to one possible conscription for your son.

Posted in: Japan's defense buildup shouldn't be seen as threat: U.S. official See in context

@Peter14

No the US is assisting those who ask for it and those working for the same democratic goals. China is the one rising tensions and creating conflict in the region because it thinks it has a destiny to be in charge of those around them. It doesn't.

In addition to not knowing much about the realities of China's history you obviously have have no awareness of the huge civilian demonstrations which called for the ousting of US bases both in Japan as South Korea.

@Peter14

The US is doing nothing different today to what has been going on since the end of WWII when it defended and saved China.

Thank you for clarifying yet again type of information your view is based on.

The US funneled massive amounts of money and weapons to Chiang Kai shek (which contributed to the outbreak of civil war), who attained his position by working with the Green Gang, Shanghai based mafia. Leading a lavish lifestyle esconced in a palatial mansion and despite having US weaponry, Chiang then lost the battle for China to Mao, who had been living in a cave.

So yes the US is doing exactly what it did in China, that is provoking unrest and conflict by encouraging and supplying arms to people they count on to further US interests.

Posted in: Japan's defense buildup shouldn't be seen as threat: U.S. official See in context

Yes of course we should all faithfully believe in and take at face value what a State Department spokesman has to say about such matters lol...if any thing this just casts even more of a shadow over recent actions done in the name of a "Free and open Indo-Pacific," for example the US warship that sailed through the Taiwan Strait.

It is clearly the US who is antagonizing China and building up tension in the region, which then causes NK to feverishly test new deterrents vis a vis the one week 24/7 attack drills held by the US and their other lapdog South Korea recently..

Posted in: Japan, U.S. to hold security talks before Kishida meets Biden See in context

The point is that the two major players make it imperative to be one way or the other rather then using their weight to encourage sovereignty outside of a prescriptive "sphere of influence."

And now that the majority of countries have been made to follow rampant free market consumerism driven by huge corporations lusting for unending profits all of the world's resources have been depleted, toxic chemicals/ plastic befouls the environment, and the rise in temperature threatens irreparable damage. That qualifies as a kind of evil.
