Two great powers peaking around the same time..2 lions in a cage..how long can the peace last, that is to be seen.

You hurt the sea, sea will take revenge. Japanese should learn.

@sfjp330: The Germans provided full state endorsed apology to the jews, something you Japanese never did to the entire East Asians for the horrors you inflicted on them. That is the difference. All I can see are token apologies provided by few politicians long long time ago. You cannot right the past wrong, but you can show that future will be different. What heart do the Chinese or Asians or East Asians nations get from the Japanese generation that wants to revive its military? What guarantee that the Japanese will not repeat the history? All I can say is the Americans in Japan or Korea not only act as deterrent to the Chinese, they keep an watchful eyes on you Japanese as well so that you are not out of you leash again.

This man deserves a better justice. The police and the judges who destroyed his life need to be brought to punishment. Only then can the full justice is complete. Is there such an avenue in Japan at all?

@Probie Mate you sound like an expert in the matter and arguing vehemently in favor of Japan's massacre of whales in the ocean. I am not sure however, if you fully understand what it means for Australia or countries of the region. Just curious where you live, as we in this surrounding where the Japanese come to kill whales go through a trauma everytime they come. Have you really looked at any of the videos of it? Whales are big part of the ocean ecosystem, I am not saying they should not be killed because they are cute( I do personally think they are beautiful anyway), its because their sheer presence contributes to the survival of lives in the ocean in big way. Yes, it is the backyard for all countries where Japanese killer ships come to hunt, there is no two way about it.

If Japan performs like they did against Italy, they are ok. They were unlucky to lose that game.

If only the people would learn to live less luxuriously, consume less..all of this would not have necessitated. YOu cannot blame these people wanting to turn on the reactors while you miss the shines of Ginza and Shinjuku at nights, while you want to enjoy every electronics you can imagine.

I do believe whales are special. They are different from the other animals reared for human consumption. Japan does not need whale meat for their hunger, they have enough of other meats and fishes already. Japan, get out of Australia's backyard, before other nations start doing same near sea of Japan.

Wonder what would be happening now if they were flying over Tokyo or Osaka. It does seem that the Okinawans are putting up with the noise for the rest of the country. I am not saying US bases are not needed, but the entire country needs to share the brunt rather than pushing it down south.

Best wishes for quick recovery to our president. Thanks to the Japanese medical staffs who will be looking after him.

Wonder what the right wing Japanese politicians who keep on insisting the 'comfort women' were necessary during Japanese occupation of Asian countries would have to say to this.

@BurakuminDes: You may live in a castle, but your attitude seems to be stemming for squalor for sure, or in real terms, it is squalor level. Don't throw around stats, do you know how many are homeless and poor and 'dirt-poor' in your own country?There are 'have's and 'have - not's everywhere. Even in Developed ones. You keep repeating you don't mean to demean Nepal or Nepalese, but cannot stop throwing mud on them, says a lot about you, could be your up bringing. Just shut up.

@BurakuminDes - your attitude seems dirt poor, not Nepal. Its a naturally rich country and developing. It is a slight on Nepalese. Besides, get out of your little squalor in wherever you are holed up and search your info properly before making comments like this about other countries. Or better get there. There are rich and poor like anywhere.

Everybody should remember that just because somebody else murdered, doesn't justify your murder.

Both countries need each other for prosperity, without which there will only be chaos on either side. Neither seem capable of dominating the other completely by military means(at least that is how it appears on paper), so is there any good fighting? Probably both should share it.

Just give it back to China..the islands don't belong to you, you know it deep down.

Japan appears from a distance like a little boy hiding behind the US giant for protection from a bully. What is one day the giant turns against you?
