Posted in: Japan set for rich medal haul in Rio, say analysts See in context

Too much bragging about Koreans while not so many in Japan care about their medals. You're obsessed with them. You hate Japan with passion on the other hand.

Posted in: Japan beats S Korea to win Asian Under-23 soccer title See in context

Even though the game wasn't the main purpose of this tournament (qualification for Olympic Games in Rio) it turned out to be a great, dramatic and entertaining show! I thought they were dead after Koreans scored the second goal just after the second half started. They could easily make it 3:0 but then Asano came on the pitch and turned the game over. When he sent the ball past Korean keeper for 3:2 my heart was beating really fast! Thanks for all the emotions (bad and good ones) that I felt watching you over the entire tournament!

I doubt any of you have anything to do with Japan but 99% of Japanese knows that's Blue Impulse's trademark figure called Sakura...

Nice waste of our TAX payer money.

What? You mean that SDF expenses are 'waste of money'?

Posted in: S Korea, China warn Japan not to backtrack on wartime apology See in context

Germany has successfully done so, Japan hasn't. Your comparison (the atrocities committed) is irrelevant. The relevant comparison is their response after the war.

I already pointed out how Germany tried and still stries to whitewash history actively after the war. Type 'polish death camps' if don't know that works pretty well the same with usage of 'Nazi' instead of 'German'. And yes - write a list of countries which haven't come in terms with Japan after the war. Because yes, even PRC did that in early 70's and South Korea in 60's. Just like Fermany did in Europe.

Say what? You may need to do a little more research there mate.

You mean Japan had ever planned in a cold manner and executed the idea of mass murders of other nations? Say what? You must have some incredible piece of documents in your hands which no historian ever came by so far!

We all wish they could, like European countries did long ago with Germany. There's one key distinction as to why they can't. Japan as a society, unlike the Germans, has failed to show genuine contrition.

At least Germany has had the balls and the moral integrity to accept responsibility for what their leadership and their country did in WW2.

I love Germany argument. Germany is in Europe and fought war there, Japan is in Asia and fought a war there. Did you know that Western Germany had come to terms with Poland with after war borders in the late 60's? Did you know that all their maps showed the old Third Reich borders with adnotation 'temporarily admistred by Poland'? Did you know that that Japanese never made a problem because of that reason? Did you know that Germans actively exterminated millions of Europeans (Jews, Slavs, Gypsies) based on some 'super race' rationals? Did you know that Japan never did that and never even planned anything close to the biggest planned and brutal atrocity in the history of mankind? Did you know that they created a thing called Agency 114 which purpose was to blame Poles instead of Germans for the Holocaust and the use of the term 'Polish concentration camp'? Did you know that people doing that were ex-Nazis responisble for the Holocaust? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agency_114)

I bet you didn't. So stop writing about Germany and Japan like they did the same crimes. Germans murdered millions of innocent people in Europe, a thing which Japan never did in Asia. And that's a very good reason to apologise to them. Not only because they started the most cruel war in history.

And sure I didn't vote because I couldn't! No, I don't want to become a naturalized Japanese! (that would probably have been your next comment)

Then it's time to kindly stfu. You hate Japan I assume from all your comments.

Posted in: China's Xi highlights Japan militarist past in Seoul speech See in context

When the war against Japan was at its highest pitch, the Chinese and Korean people shared their suffering and helped each other with sweat and blood

fighting for the Japanese Empire in Manchuria, right President Xi? South Korea just named their submarine with the name of a terrorist who killed few Japanese Imperial officials in Shanghai in the 30's who was admired by Chiang Kai Shek that 'he did what 100,000Chinese soldiers couldn't do in years' and blamed by Korean Sangham Rhee that 'did right and that's no wonder that Japanese opressed Korean freedom movement after episodes like that'. It's indeed a poor mentallycountry if they praise 'heroes' like that...

Both of them would have been sick if they haven't mentioned Japan in their speeches. I wonder when young Chinese will be getting full of the 'blame' Japan as the generations will pass.

Posted in: Japan pushing on with reform of constitution despite fiery suicide bid See in context

I don't know what many here have in mind writing about that 'it's censored', 'the government doesn't care about people's voice'? It's been around the biggest matome sites right after that happened. And what's more important - it would be great if the government had completely ignored this happening as that could only provoke houndreds of dumb sicos around Japan to perform something similar.

Posted in: Japan demands China withdraw plane encounter video footage See in context

Like I said in regards to Jimizo's comment, when you can't offer a valid argument, resort to calling people who don't agree with you "Japan bashers"

Like I said - if you can't speak about scrambling talk about 'sex-slaves' or Nanjing to change the topic as you don't have argument in your hand nor any basic knowledge about that. You can take paid upvotes form Chinese spambots but it doesn't change a fact that I described what the likes of you keep on doing in every discussion here or elsewhere where they have 'their' people.

Posted in: Japan plans arms procurement agency to promote exports See in context

Sign of a dying nation, socially, economically and most of all spiritually.

It seems like Japan is finally becoming a NORMAL country when it comes to arms export. Not dying, because if you would like to put this label on Japan then the whole world is already gone. But I look through the window and it's still running!

The Soryu diesel subs are the one you see here in Kobe, they build and repair them. You can see them on the Google Earth, suppose the Chinese can too?

Have you ever been to the Kure Naval Base? You can see everything from the shore, you don't need satellite to see what's happening there.

You are confusing a hearsay, with real facts.

Haha, read this. It lead to release of Japanese mangas under fake Korean names in those times. Japanese are still laughing at that and indeed - if Hello Kitty was visable anywhere in South Korea before 1998 people surely thought that was Korean. Read this:

Relax, judges will have to make some South Korean figure skater to win in the next Olympics. Once they judge in your favor, once in faavor of the other party. In the end it comes to 0. Putin will surely laughs at the flood of Korean users spamming his Facebook account.

But that was in the past, and now that's all changed under Abe.

What changed under Abe? That he's trying to change constitution? That China keeps on regular military build up?

To t ell the truth nothing changed under Abe. The world is just moving on.

Posted in: Virginia becomes hotbed of diplomacy over Sea of Japan name See in context

No country can pressure other country to change a name of something that it isn't under it's administartion. But it seems like you can buy a part of geography in the USA... I'm waiting for changing the name of Baltic Sea to East Sea as that's what it's called Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and put the name West Sea as that's how Estonians call it! Why Europeans have so much common sense unlike a certain countries on certain peninsula?

Posted in: New NHK head's 'comfort women' remark stirs controversy See in context

But now, I guess the NHK, under the government of Shinzo Abe, is going back to its original WWII roots to broadcast Japanese propaganda to the world.

As long as they won't show fake photos with captions suggesting reality then it would be still better than South Korea or China.

Posted in: China memorial to Korean assassin sparks Japan feud See in context

This memorial is for peace and to honor the war dead.

It isn't for peace but to bite back at Japan. And there was no war at the time. Ahn wasn't a soldier. Establishing a monument for 9.11 attacks Arab terrorists as 'for peace and to honor the war dead' is a good comparision.

Posted in: Japan to supply ammo to South Korean troops in South Sudan See in context

It quotes the Korean government officials who complain that they are uncomfortable with the way Japanese government is using this "help" as a political tool to pave its way to a remilitarized Japan

This only shows how much South Korea bent it over when it comes to relations with Japan. Only possible with China and South Korea around the world. And don't tell me that whole Asia hates Japan as it showed in many thanks from Phillipines after the end of Operation Sangkay recently.

Yet, Korean government can't spit out the word 'Thank you'. Even though the Koreans serving in South Sudan took a phone to Japanese troops commander thanking for the immediate help...

Posted in: Japan to supply ammo to South Korean troops in South Sudan See in context

did Japan already forget that during Fukushima crisis in 2011, Korean government provided Japan with mobile power plant and special chemicals to douse fire which were all requested by Japanese government?

Is the capsized Korean tugboat near the shores of Wakayama whose Korean armator keeps running away from responsibility and paycheck for tons of spilled oil any news in South Korea?

Posted in: Honda set to join AC Milan See in context

If I remember correctly, no clubs were fighting to buy Kagawa from Dortmund either! ;)

Mourinho revealed lately that he wanted to bring Kagawa to Real Madrid. Another Spanish football superpower of recent years, Atletico Madrid, still shows interest in him.

Is it true Kagawa ate too much and had his stomach pumped therefore missing the newcastle game?

He denied that rumour. But it started living it's own life.

If Honda is really the superstar some people here seem to think he is, why is he going on a free transfer at 27 years old? Where were all the clubs fighting each other off to buy him?

It was his former club, CSKA Moscow, which denied the move as they wanted to keep him as he was a Russian league star and help the team to the end. We don't know what other clubs which wanted him were but AC Milan was the club which was really persistent with the offer and Honda wanted to play for a big club in Italy since he was a teenager.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea hold joint sea drill in China air zone See in context

"The two Asian democracies have refused to recognize the Chinese zone, as has the United States." So why did Yonhap report that Seoul had told civil carriers to abide by the PRC's ADIZ rules?

Noting like that happened. Seoul said it's up to the individual airlines decission whether they will report the flight plans or not. South Korean military doesn't recognize the Chinese zone.

Posted in: Honda set to join AC Milan See in context

Tired? Thanks for giving me a good laugh, his main problem will be keeping warm on the bench.

He played in every game for CSKA this year, haven't got any vacations because of Confederations Cup in Brazil and played in every Japanese National Team game this year. Two games every week, something around 40 in half of the year. Probably one of the busiest football player on European pitches this year.

In fact, with Kagawa at United and Honda at Milan, this season will settle once and for all the issue of who is Japan's top bench-warmer.

Kagawa and Honda aren't benchwarmers, Kagawa plays every time he's available for Manchester United recently.
