On the other hand, the US military bases in Japan and Okinawa have big red targets on them in the grand geopolitical games

Not true when you look at what has happened to non-NATO protected Ukraine

Non-aligned nations are the sitting ducks, not those who have the full force of NATO and/or US protection

Whatever, what Japan actually needs is more American presence, not less. China are potential homicidal maniacs in the vein of Russia - with even less justification than Russia have, and are a danger to everyone in that part of the world.

I deal in antiques, despite the recent boom in the Chinese Antique market (and yes I do have some Chinese antiques) the Chinese tourists that came to me (before covid) were not interested in even my best Chinese pieces.

They wanted Japanese antiques, a lot of them even if they had little value it had to be made in Japan.

Fascinating, however the point is Japan does need such trade in order to survive.

Obviously you do, and inded have probably had a lot of success peddling to the Chinese.

Posted in: COVID-19 entry ban could deter interest in Japan: UK scholars See in context

Japan shooting itself in the foot so to speak to appease xenophobic voters.

At least they listen to the voters.

Ask UK voters whether they want unbridled immigration - oh they did and what was the result?

And yet with every passing day, Brexit itself is being unravelled - witness the open door policy now being enacted in the UK - anyone can come, whenever they want, vaccination status irrelevant

But like Brexit in the UK, folk who consider something beneficial as a vague concept, may not enjoy how the reality plays out.

WIth that one phrase you have exposed your revolving door immigration strategem in its entirety.

Japan and all other right thinking Asian nations including Australia and Taiwan need to stand up to Chinese aggression

If it means closing the borders to prevent uncivilized Chinese hordes from traveling in and disrupting the existing civil order, so be it.

let it be known that this strategy is purely designed to check Chinese over reach, and not general xenophobia as is sometimes claimed.

Posted in: Japan's entry ban hurting foreign students' mental health: survey See in context

Mainly this is aimed at blocking out the greatest number of tourists - the Chinese hordes that have been descending on Japan in increasing numbers.

Everyone else is collateral damage, but thats life.

In order to keep China at bay, needs must.

Hotlines are actually a sign of the situation being very very bad. Nothing positive at all about this.

Posted in: Kishida, China's Xi hold phone talks See in context

China with its continuous and escalating military threats is anything but a good neighbour. Kishida has no business in discussing anything with them - China has clearly made it clear the time for discussion is now past.

looks like Kishida is caving in already to Chinese aggression.
