PC, smartphone all partly or wholly made in China, probably wearing socks, trouser, shirt, etc...also made in China.

not sure what any of that has to do With political power.

true power is what Russia is doing right now, taking what it wants , when it wants, and switching off access to daily essentials in order to achieve its aims.

the Chinese are too scared to do anything other than continue selling their junk to the west.

The government of Russian is a superpower, way beyond the Government of China!

Absolutely correct, recall at the start of the Special Military Operation, so-called serious anaylsts were saying XI would 'reign in' some of Putins actions

In fact, the opposite has occured with Putin calling the tune and Xi dancing.

For Japan a politically strengthened Rusia at the expense of an exposed paper tiger China is a good thing BTW

He’s wrong - Russia is the real ‘threat’ and will emerge as stronger and superior than China due to its Willingness to take larger risks

china is closer to a barking dog particularly militarily.

Fair enough, they don’t want any more tourists (mainly Chinese) and Covid is the excuse

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.

Sorry my last post should have said Japan does not need such trade to survive.

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.

Posted in: Kishida, new U.S. envoy Emanuel affirm importance of alliance at 1st meeting See in context

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.

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.

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.
