I wouldn't count on it. Have you seen how few politicians there are in the Diet (with only two in the cabinet) and Japan continuing to drop down the international rankings for gender equality despite all Abe's puffery about the empowerment of women?

It'd be foolish to count out the first woman governor of Tokyo before the bell rings, wouldn't it?

Smart long play move. Stay out of the fringes and divided opposition, then back to the party in power, on track for the top job. Wouldn't be surprised if the glass ceiling shall have been shattered in the Land of the Rising Sun within a decade.

Posted in: Trump unlikely to rebuke Duterte for drug war killings See in context

Why? Clearly the us is a poor example of a Nation that respects human rights. Prime examples? All wars since the second world war. A very dark kettle meeting an equally dark pot!!!

“My name is Uncle Sam, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” 

Will you cast the first stone against Chicago's Englewood or Riverdale neighborhoods? Human rights violations galore, murder on the streets.

Manila will have its drug-infested slums, tough problems to deal with.

Would President Trump really be in a position to pontificate?

Posted in: U.S. experts urge Japan to get strike capability over N Korean threat See in context

US ( the people who control US) seems to want wars until all the Japanese are extinct.

Strong opinion but a tad melodramatic.

Priority Number 1. Do not have the Japanese nation feel helpless running for shelters in the wake of external aggression, i.e. NKor threats.

Priority Number 2. Wait 'til the Sino threats come in. By then it may be too late. Uncle Sam is a great ally, but it is not a component of the JSDF. If not "strike", get "counter-strike" capabilities. Quick time.

Beyond the semantics, bottom-line the U.S. has got Japan's back and vice-versa. Though Japan has to do more to defend its own shores.

Posted in: Trump, Abe toast 'bromance' as two-day summit wraps up See in context

Thanks for reporting on the close working relationship between Trump and Abe. But "Bromance"? Strange term for a prestigious news outlet. Apparently also used by Reuters, but not the NYT. It does exude a tone of disdain more attuned with an opposing opinion editorial.

What was the term used to describe Abe and Obama? "Frosty"?

President Trump is right. Follow the money!

But it appears more and more that he needs a Rudy or even a Chris as A.G. to replace the ex-senator /politician, more appointments in Justice to drain the deep state swamp before anything gets done.

Great Again!

Posted in: Trump, Abe play a round of golf diplomacy See in context

A round of golf with Matsuyama at one of Japan's best golf courses. Great way to reciprocate for the royal treatment at Mar-a-Lago and to set the right tone for talks.

When the detractors get riled up, Trump and Abe must be doing something right.

All this publicity! Covered by US media as well. Cheaper than media buys on prime time TV. Brilliant strategy, if so conceived. Next year, expect something over the top.

Posted in: 3 million Americans carry a handgun daily: study See in context

Let me try re-wording my question, actually I will leave it as it was

SERIOUS question, please explain to us HOW a hand gun can protect YOU from the US govt? One or 2 examples if you have them?

Shooting animals with  what I would assume to be rifles......What I was asking is HOW is your HAND GUN going to help you DEFEND yourself against the US govt potentially??!!??

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

"...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Doesn't matter if it's about hand guns or rifles. Or whether to hunt, or to feel safe (i.e. because of fear of gov't oppression if it ever happens) or protect ourselves and our families because the nearest police "koban" is 50 kms away, our right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

Whew! Stock up on the "Kool Aid" guys. It is quite possible that this man is going to be the United States President through 2024, after which date most probably VP Pence through 2032. Instead of hate, pray for success! Tax reductions, full employment, Yyuge surpluses, peace in the Middle East, the return of the Democratic party back to sanity. The benefits will surely flow back to our beloved Japan and to all other nations.

Posted in: Trump says predecessors didn't honor fallen soldiers; response heated See in context

But if Americans comment on European politics or specifically conservatives, stay out of it! You don't know what you're talking about. They, as most leftists internationally as well as domestically think that they have the moral high ground and have the right to preach how the country should be, how people should live or worship and how our daily lives should be conducted, how much money we are allowed to make or keep. Not anymore, but they do have CA and NY to go to. They like those kind of politics, a safe haven for the socialists.

You're right. At the end of the day, they all aspire for some sort of European style socialism. Rrrrrabidly against those who disagreed.

It must be great to always get the benefit of the doubt like Obama does. well you know when yo present yourself with humility and modesty and dont come across as a egotistical misogynistic racist bigot, respect and "benefit of the doubt" just comes naturally from others

It's called leading from behind. Never built anything in his life.

Two words: Beau Bergdorf.

Released by Obama. When did Obama honor at least 6 fallen American soldiers who died trying to rescue this confessed deserter, traitor, honored by Obama himself in nothing less than a Rose Garden ceremony along with the release of 5 enemy combatant commanders.

Oh, yes, Obama had many photo ops, such as the "ceremony" for the fallen of Benghazi. Who could not have marveled in admiration for "that".

I realize that most posters here are not even American, but leftists should really learn to simmer down, not be discombobulated by turn of events not in lockstep with ideology.

Actually, Harvey Weinstein can now afford to double down on Larry Flynt, since he won't be funding Dems anytime soon. That should be quite a Mona Lisa level of sanctimonious wrath.

"...those same "high-priced legal eagles" that protect Trump from 3500 lawsuits and presenting his tax returns. Got to love the right at times pointing the finger at somebody whos suffering from "small pox" while they're infected with Ebola themselves.."

Those were out in the open, yet President Trump won.

Barry Soetoro on the other hand, this "foreign student from Indonesia on a scholarship" will probably eventually prove to be the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people and the world.

Nothing can be so desperate as to "..exult all shores...", ye porn money at last coming to the rescue of leftist lost causes.

"Porn publisher offers up to $10 million for dirt on Trump" and the entire left coast grovel giddy with delight. Ah, surely someone has to have that elusive juicy video tape so naively unprotected, unlike Barry Soetoro's college records under wraps by high-priced legal eagles.

At least the "blue dress" proof didn't need any porn publisher's STD infected cash.

Less arms and missiles for Hezbollah and Hamas, more food and jobs for Iranians. What's so complicated for leftist scardy cats? At least we won't see $1.7 billion surreptitiously paid in ransom cash in the dead of the night anytime soon.

Thought to ponder: What an opportune time for an Iranian spring with the right American president in place! Do it now, great Iranian people, and be done with the mullahs once and for all! Peace and prosperity!

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov? Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying? Tweedledum & Tweedledee. Who are these people? Factotums? Janitors? Might as well report "anonymous sources".

The fake news media once again tries to preach to its choir what is clearly a partisan, leftist opinion as "news".

It does get the leftist worked up and excited. More proof that their "gal" lost to an "idiot", because of (...wait for it) the woman did not campaign in the rust belt states! So that "idiot" is now President. Cry me a river! Man up already!

Let President Trump deal with this and have him shut the little fat guy up for good - without even firing a shot!

"Having a gun around the house increases the likelihood of them getting killed by guns. So I couldn’t morally justify moving there."

Neither could I, having lived in Manhattan. Until I visited my son in Fort Leonard Wood.

The Great U.S.A. has many places where police officers are more than an hour away, even if you call 9-1-1. We may not need automatic weapons, but we need to "stand our ground" and protect family.

Thank God for the Second Amendment!

Trump hits back at late night shows critical of Republicans.

Surprise! Oh yes, this president fights back. No, he's not a baby. He has a bully pulpit and he's just learning to use it. Watch out!

If leftists aren't happy, use the ballot box. Until then, respect the presidency and get used to it, because it's going to be a long time coming, possibly a few decades, before another dem gets elected president.

The clearly partisan mayor of San Juan woke up on November 9th with shock and horror, "He's NOT my president!"

To be clear, President Donald Trump imposed a 90-day restriction on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen until vetting procedures are established to protect the people of the US of A.

On the other hand, over a billion other Muslims are absolutely not affected, including Indonesia, home to 12.7% of the world's Muslims, Pakistan (11.0%), and India (10.9%).
