The traitor dotard Donald Trump, who is a puppet for Russia, has no concern whatsoever for human rights, as he is one of the world's major violators; moreover, the illiterate fool couldn't find Hong Kong on a map, or his own fat ass with both hands.
Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Australia, India, and others should get serious and form a powerful alliance to contain and discourage China and Russia.

It is always the same old tired story with Fascist Red China: they can't give over the past, even that which allegedly took place in ancient times. It is their old tired desperation to rattle their tin swords of nationalism, when they have growing domestic problems, such as their people wanting decent wages, medical care, and more freedom. The bottom line is that their leaders are hollow men with no ideas, that any major war with Japan, South Korea, India, would bring in the U.S. and the European allies, which would mean a nuclear holocaust that would be the last war and the last of humanities existence. Only if Fascist Red China is willing to commit suicide....

Waste of money? Not for the global weapons cartels. They are constantly raking in many trillions of dollars by flaming all sorts of descent throughout the world, under the pretensions of defending human rights and spreading democracy, although democracy in the U.S. is dying.
Moreover, Obama's "change you can depend on" can't be depended upon, as he is furthering the Bush/ultra-right-wing agenda by refusing to leave Afghanistan and by the numerous semi-clandestine wars being waged by the U.S. throughout the world. Add to that that the NSA and other dark spy agencies have constant surveillance of American-born citizens, and government officials in allied countries!
The best pragmatic policy, at this time, would be to quarantine the Islamic countries and their repressive religious believes and savage barbarism. Stay out of their way and let them eliminate each other.

What is Japan's choice? To teach many future generations to cower and continuously submit to China by apologizing for World War II, even 10 centuries and longer from now? Or will Japan tell China to shove it?
Japan has to become strong and defend itself. I am American, but I wouldn't trust America to honor its promises.

China is obviously behind this, as always. If the women need an apology, they should ask if from those who were actually not involved, not young Japanese boys in elementary school who have never heard of such things!
And let Mao Zedong apologize to the Chinese for the millions of his own people he had put to death, and the untold number of women he raped!

Japan would be wise to remove their factories from China, which would have many benefits, such as increasing good jobs at home, and increasing what used to be the famous Japanese quality.
China has never caught up with 20th century, let alone the 21st century. They are still a nation of starving, diseased peasants. With close to the same land mass of the continental U.S., they have more than a billion people who live in horrible conditions.
China has never been communist, but a brutal dictatorship. The foundation of communism was ownership of the means of production by the workers and equality, neither of which has ever come close to occurring. Now, China is owned by global corporations, such as Boeing, General Electric, Apple, Exxon-Mobile, Toyota, Nikon, Braun, etc., which means it has morphed into a fascist dictatorship, lead by the super-wealthy, power-elite. Does it sound like communism that China now has the world's fastest growing class of millionaires and billionaires?
Without the foreign ownership of Fascist China, China would quickly revert to an agrarian economy of ALL peasants living in mud and stick huts, raising sick, skinny ducks and pigs!

If Abe expects the U.S. to go to thermonuclear world-war to defend Japan against the ghost of Mao Zedong, he should make strong trade concessions to the U.S. Too, maintaining weapons of mass destruction is damned expensive--something Japan's taxpayers don't have to worry about.

Posted in: Why do you think billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose foundation has plowed billions of dollars into making vaccines against diseases like polio, malaria and HIV, is a regular target for fringe groups and anti-vaxxers accusing him of benefiting from vaccination or even using them for harm.
