It is a fact that Japan is on a path of getting much stronger than it already is militarily. This is all a part of Abe's dream of making Japan into a military powerhouse once again!

History is starting to repeat itself again!

Oh really? Have they returned to having the Emperor being a God? Have they gone back to having a Minister of the Army and Minister of the Navy in the cabinet? Better watch out for the Kempei!! Such nonsense.

Japan's present buildup, which they resisted for nearly 70 years, is a reaction to what is going on around them. They are being forced into it particularly by China.

China showed it's hand nearly a decade ago when the Senkaku dispute flared. All western nations have been lining up alternative sources since. While it may disrupt immediate supply/prices, it's not going to bring the U.S. to its knees, if that's what China is shooting for.

27...………….WTF!! Clearly Japan does NOT CARE about human trafficking!!

I would not be surprised to see that utterly pathetic figure being more accurate with THREE more 000's added to it!

Come on Japan you should be doing MUCH better than this, basically Japan is ALLOWING this trafficking to take place, how sad!!

You really have no idea what you;re talking about.

*This is real sex slavery. It's happening now today. Not some flip flopping contradictory 70 year old testimony with a political agenda.*

So you honestly believe that a 70 year old who grew up in a time when women didn't even show their ankles in public, would talk about her sexual past, and humiliate herself internationally by forever being known as a former sex slave, and subject herself to hate and derision from around the globe, just to score political points for a government that basically threw her under the bus 50 years ago. Really.

It's always best to study a subject carefully before taking a position.

The tragedy of todays human trafficking in various parts of the world is a serious problem that needs to be eliminated through cooperation of all countries. It's a human rights issue, a law enforcement issue. Not a political one.

*OssanAmerica - Agree. Don't know anyplace that does random stops to just check licenses. Random DWI checks are already common, although they aren't really "random" in the sense that certain weekends/holidays are targeted. Plus drivers are just passed through withoutchecking license/registration unless there is suspicion of DWI.*

Oh, well, there you have it folks. OssanAmerica does not know of any place that has random checks for licenses. Therefore, it must be a myth. I guess he hasn’t spent much time in any other place than his own state in O’america. Police in Australia can and do stop cars without any probable cause to check licenses and give random drug and alcohol tests. 

If true, you folks down under really need to reconsider your status as a "democracy". Don't you have any rights activists down there? And your Police departments need to do a serious cost efficiency analysis. Or is crime so low in Australia that the cops have that much time on their hands?

Just to check licenses? No. Random breath testing, at which time a license, vehicle registration and roadworthiness can also be confirmed? Sure, why not?

OssanAmerica - Or do you advocate random spot checks without cause

Considering how frequently people are being arrested in japan (half a dozen a year) for driving without a licence perhaps there is a need for random spot checks. If you calculate that half a dozen a year caught without random checks, there must be many people driving without licenses.

6 people arrested per year is cause for Random Spot Checks?

The State of California has some 26.7 million drivers, making 5.3 million unlicensed drivers. And they don't do random spot checks.

"More than 1 in 5 California drivers involved in fatal crashes were driving with expired, revoked or suspended licenses or had never even had a license, according to a study released Wednesday by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety."

Posted in: S Korea to carefully review Japan arbitration call on wartime labor See in context

itsonlyrocknrollToday 01:41 am JST

I would expect the whole arbitration process if or when both Governments of Japan and South Korea agree, to be guided and over-seen by the The International Court of Justice …...

No I don't see that at all. In order to for the ICJ to be involved, both nations must first agree. Secondly, both nations must be prepared to accept the ICJ ruling as compulsory. In this regard, Japan is a signatory but South Korea is not.

https://www.icj-cij.org/en/declarations

Considering that Japan has offered to settle the Liancourt Rocks issue at the ICJ three times and South Korea has refused each time, it's extremely unlikely that South Korea would now sign on to accept ICJ jurisdiction now.

The 1965 Treaty clauses regarding Arbitration is quite clear. The question now is whether South Korea will agree to arbitrate.

DisillusionedToday  07:12 am JST

Driving without a licence for 40 years? Doesn't say much for the Japanese traffic police, does it?

Doesn't say anything either way. If this man has never caused a traffic accident or infraction to give cause for being stopped and checked, no traffic police in any country would have caught him.

Or do you advocate random spot checks without cause?

The problem has been the Koreans inability to forget.

Comedy gold.

Reminds one of what the female Japanese comedian, the one who lived in LA in the 90s, said:

"Back in the day Japan invaded Korea, raped the women, murdered the children and enslaved the men. And they haven't forgotten. So we hate them."

And who was that "comedian" Because that statement is a complete fabrication in every aspect. Bet you she was Korean.

Many Naval ships have geographical names, as US battleships did. The JMSDF Kaga is named after the province of Kaga 加賀, now Ishikara Prefecture) as was the IJNS Kaga of WWII. Really don't see anything "ironic" about it.

Subsequently, the plaintiffs successfully sought the seizure of about 81,000 shares Nippon Steel has in POSCO-Nippon Steel RHF Joint Venture Co, a joint venture with South Korean steelmaker POSCO that is known simply as PNR.

Funny....Japan paid money to the South Korean government to compensate "individuals who suffered" in 1965 but the SK government used it instead to help create....POSCO. Talk about getting shafted twice over the same thing.

Japan needs to stop treating South Korea like some civilized country and instead of "hinting" at retaliation just get on with it. Only when SK business is hurt will they pressure the Moon administration to do something about this nonsense.

It "eroded" back in 1871.

"After the Emperor appeared in Western dress, government officials and the educated elite began wearing Western-style clothing in public. In 1871, the Emperor issued a mandate requiring high officials to wear Western clothes during business hours or when at official functions."
