America has been attacked and has enemies. Remember 9/11? Russia wants to expand its influence through Europe and is a potential enemy.
do you know how many countries attack China during WWII ? Remember WWII ? Russia is US potential enemy, then the same goes with China, it has its own potential enemy too, we all know who are them. China build its military with the aim to dominate other country? last i checked China never involved in any war after WWII, never invading any other countries even until now. You need me to tell you how many countries America "liberate" recently? comparing these two, we can tell China develop its military for the sake of defense, and not attack. Fact !
They say what they need to get to their goals and their goal is world dominance.
you are putting words in someone's else mouth, this is bad habit. Last i checked, nobody in China ever said world dominance, even starting from WW I until now. Fact !
Punish a country for angering China, even though it was a reasonable request.
no worries, the sanctions China imposed is nothing compared to what US did to Iran, Mexico, Europes. America is the master in using sanction to silence others, please check and prove me wrong
And these fleets have been documented around the world.
If this fishing fleets is military armed, and entering other nations sovereign sea, just shoot it down and stop grumbling. Maybe you know more than their intelligence agents, and get internal information that they are actually CCP pawns..i dont know, i wont make my own conclusion without any solid prove, else it is all fantasy imagination
All nations want the money they get from trade with China. They give "lip service" to the one China policy to appease CCP
under the circumstances maybe you can suggest to close down the UN, because UN also obey One China policy and banned Taiwan for joining it
China took Tibet by force
Please further study your history lesson to learn how on first place Tibet is under China
is it trying to replace the US as the worlds policeman
ok, nobody can have ships and tanks or anything more than US. US is worlds policeman whether he is doing his jobs correctly or not. Nobody can challenge it ( i smell dictatorship, and who on first place nominate US to become the world's police ? )
China officially is "preparing for war" as Xi has been quoted.
you are picking up words out of whole context. Please read the whole speech and behave like a mature adult
anyway in conclusion, US can have military bases and ships everywhere, China can't do it. i can tell this is your point. I respect your views and i also agree US is doing good in this. Up until now no nations can challenge US position on it. i believe in this world no leaders with logical mind will ever think to challenge it, it is mission impossible. My point is simple, Japan and China want peace, that's all.

dear Peter, let me clarify i am not communist and i dont like the way communist behave too. Anyway i strongly believe there shall be a peace plan between Japan and China. Both countries already suffer long enough from the proxy war by other strong nations. i believe with the new generation and new educated chinese, a negotiation is the best way to get out from the mess.
-3 ( +3 / -6 )
For a nation under no military threat that claims to want peace its actions are contra indicative and show a clear path to future conflict with any number of countries.
what's wrong with China expanding its own military force? America is the strongest nation in the world with nobody even dream of attacking them, basically zero military threat, but their yearly military expense budget is top of the world, so it is not a logical incompatibility ?
military base in South China Sea...yes it is their bad for breaking their promise
trade sanctions against country called for Covid investigation...so far only Australia get partial sanctions, but not other countries. i believe the story is far more complex behind the scene. They learn this kind of sanction strategy from their guru - America
military fishing vessel to steal resources...what resources? again it is NOT TRUE
claiming Taiwan...this is decades old story, and even America recognize One China policy, mind you
border disputes with other nations...which country dont have border disputes? name it. but did China take the land by military force? not even once. Dont forget about Crimea, or maybe Alaska
having more ships than US...so it is an unforgivable sin for having more ships than US? China have more ships or submarines or tanks or whatever, i can assure you they never travel thousand miles away from their homeland and carry out the so called "military exercise"
Now, tell me again China want to conquer almost every nations in the world
-5 ( +3 / -8 )
a clear willingness on the part of the US to shed blood and treasure to defend the Japanese
thank you but US are not an invited guest in this region. Stop playing hero or savior please, because they are not even invited to this region. Last i checked under the name of liberating people of Iraq and Afghanistan, they are still suffering even until now. SO, please let the Asian deal with their own business and stop the savior angel story, nobody will trust in this kind of fairy tales anymore
Chinese press Okinawa has been called Japanese occupied Chinese territory
i dont know where you get this kind of info, but it is NOT TRUE. Nobody in China have any interest in Okinawa...it is super self-made imagination. Amazing but not true. I suggest you to read more history and get the real info.

tortoise, i wont say you are naive, but i will say you are narrow-minded and look the things in your own way. Chinese hate Japan and China attack Japan is two totally different story. First question, why on earth China want to attack and conquer Japan ? let me tell you, they NEVER think of it, even in WWII they never ever think of it. China know more than anyone on earth what is the consequences of the attack. Yes maybe they want the Senkaku island, but that's geopolitical issues that dragged for decades. China have territory disputes with almost every nations in South East Asian. You know how many people in China still live below poverty line there? They can't afford to have another unnecessary war. Their first priority is Taiwan, and even for Taiwan, they are thinking and thinking for decades without any solid military actions, mind you Japan is far far more stronger in military force than Taiwan. Under the circumstances what prompt you to think that China want to attack almost every nations in the world? who create this ideas and want conflict in this region? who can benefit most from the chaos condition and divided nations in Asia zone? the answer is crystal clear. Secondly, for Chinese hate Japan, i suggest you to mix with more chinese, rather than one family. I have many chinese friends here and some of them even want to migrate to Japan.
-3 ( +3 / -6 )
yes, absolutely agreed with goodlucktoyou. China is never Japan enemy in this 21st century. The one who benefit most from the conflicts, the arms sales, crazy protection fees, shall be our enemy. The same tactic already be applied to euro zone, now the same is happening in Asia. We all know who is the trouble makers here
-8 ( +2 / -10 )
china and Japan shall co-operate with each other, rather than promoting hatred among the region. It is hoped that the conflict can be settled through negotiation and keep american out of the region. After all, the mastermind behind all these conflict is american for their own interest. china or japan welfare is never under their consideration

UN is a joke, nobody need to take serious about them. Whatever involved China and America, UN will suddenly bow down and become the "yes-boss-man"

after approval from IAEA, people will ask for NRA approval, after passing it, people will ask for WHO approval, then WTO, then UNHCR, then God's know what organizations again. After going all through it, lastly people will ask for local community kindergarten's teacher approval. Japan government need to stand firm on its principle

smithinjapan, it is not convincing at all when someone is asking the world to treat Japan like trash, but at the same time that someone is living eating earning drinking and doing all his activities in Japan

Suga shall proceed with his decision and dont listen to so called "foreign" experts opinions. what can you expect from someone who dont even have basic knowledge of wearing mask during pandemic period. They cant even answer the simple question of " shall we wear mask in the public area? ". All they know is shouting freedom freedom and guess what? yeah they have the highest Covid cases in the world. Think twice before you take their advice
-1 ( +1 / -2 )
good move Japan. Look at how US threaten NATO by Trump grumbling about it, dont fall into another american's trap anymore. commies or not, the only winner in this QUAD is US, God knows how many "protection" fees will go into their pockets every year.

who need vaccines?? according to Trump his son get infected and recovered after 2 SECONDS. i am speechless to this. Good luck to my dear fellow American friends

The only sincere country in helping and promoting true friendship with others - Japan. Unlike the american, everything will goes one sided and only benefit themselves. Typical US policy : you want me to be your friend? pay us

Under Suga's wisdom and guidance, Japan are going to have stronger relationship with the neighboring countries. Thank you Mr. Prime Minister !!

SK is like a child crying and seeking attention, everyday is about whining for Japan war crimes and nothing else. How many time they need Japan to apology and compensate them? never-ending grumbling
9 ( +14 / -5 )
it is absolutely alright for Suga even to pay personal visit to Yasukuni shrine, it is just a respect to those who die in the war. War criminals? maybe you forget about My Lai massacre, No Gun Ri massacre, Bikini island, Hiroshima, Nagasaki etc.

good and smart move Suga!

American troops in Japan only serve their own interest and Japan are paying too much for them. It is time Japan to stand firm and neglect their never-ending demands

@kiwi, when fact is against your understanding and knowledge, diverting attention to vocabulary shall be a good tactic? please stop and help me, grow up. For me i respect your views, i agree to disagree. Anyway man need to grow up and stop the language class or being so ego to accept other people opinions. Maybe this is what people call white ego and make me felt disgusted toward it. this is the only lesson i learn today.

@kiwi, last i checked, nz dont even have nuclear technology, now i understand why someone felt so agitated and annoyed by this new tech. anyway keep learning from Japan and i believe one day someone can catch up with it

@kiwi i suggest you to further your studies or refer to your grammar teacher to understand whatever i said. you like the conspiracy theory, go ahead and be my guest. i can live with it

The 825,000-kilowatt reactor won the approval of the Nuclear Regulation Authority in February
do you think that this authority will bow down to politicians? if you think so, you shall get access to its report and read it by yourself. don't you think that everything quoted as " i think" “i assume" is kinda of conspiracy theory with no solid prove? It is Japan we are talking about, with years of experience in disasters and management of nuclear reactors, with world top brilliant talents there, not any third-world developing countries we know. If their daily research and 9am-5pm dedicated works can be denied by " i think, i assume, i believe", then i believe there is no points we argue the issue anymore.
seriously i never read its report but i choose to trust in expertise judgement rather than conspiracy theory, that's all. If the safety level is within expertise's tolerance level, i believe they know what they are doing about.
i dont know in your perspective "hypocrite" is an insult or not, but i know in my view if somebody denied something, but at the same time using that something with no shame, then that's 100% absolute hypocrite. forgive me for not able to find another more polite words to describe it.
