Gotta love the two sides of Japan. Govt creates the quad to contain China, and at the same time, the Govt encourages the private sector to court businesses in China. In other words, it’s all about image and money.

LOL. People saying Koreans are behind this didn't even bother to read the article.

Forgive these people. Nothing seems to be going well for their country, so they need an easy punching bag to vent their angers.

Another one Abe's stupid legacies as he tried to make Japan more relevant in the international stage. Next target of China's wrath will be Japan. There are other ways to counter the Chinese, and Quad is not one of them.

If Japan wasn't constantly being harassed and antagonized by its neighbors whether North Korean missiles or Chinese territorial disputes, this would never have been needed.

err, wasn’t it Japan that constantly harassed and attacked their neighbors for thousands of years? If Japan wasn’t as barbaric in the past, the neighbors wouldn’t want to defend/attack Japan, would they?

Btw, an apology in Japan is not the same as in the west. It's lip service to save face and force the victims to silence.

So in the other story from today, Japan focuses on remembering the victims of WW2. When Korea focuses on their own victims, the Japanese tell them to move. Oh the hypocrisy.

For the ignorant masses, I post again the comments made by UN experts re 1965 treaty.

https://www.ilo.org/dyn/normlex/en/f?p=NORMLEXPUB:13100:0::NO::P13100_COMMENT_ID:2218404

"The Government of Japan’s attempt to escape liability through the operation of these treaties fails on two counts: (a) Japan’s direct involvement in the establishment of the rape camps was concealed when the treaties were written, a crucial fact that must now prohibit on equity grounds any attempt by Japan to rely on these treaties to avoid liability; and (b) the plain language of the treaties indicates that they were not intended to foreclose claims for compensation by individuals for harms committed by the Japanese military in violation of human rights or humanitarian law"

Fact. The 1965 treaty did not cover comfort women nor forced laborers. 

Fact. All the previous Japanese governments acknowledged that individual claims by forced laborers and comfort women were not extinguished by the treaty.

Fact. 100 Japanese lawyers all agreed that the rulings made by South Korea's Supreme Court is correct and in line with the terms of the 1965 Treaty.

Grow up Japan!

Posted in: Tokyo reports single-day record of 366 new coronavirus infections See in context

Is anyone here, apart from the apologists, surprised?

Seems like increased testing is leading to increased cases.

Just proves that all the propaganda by Jgov is fake, you know the 'Japan model' or world class etiquette, culture, virus beating cuisine, and non-spitting language.

It's too late to contain it in Japan. 70% of transmissions cannot be traced. Stay safe everyone.

Posted in: Tokyo governor urges residents to stay home over 4-day weekend as virus surges See in context

Another "headless chook running around" type urging. Urge? The number of cases in Japan is meaningless when tests are low and more than 70% are untraceable. It's already spreading uncontrollably within the community and the j-gov has done jack all to properly contain it.

Egotistic Abe and his oyajis are much to be blamed for this, having believed in the superiority of the culture to fend against an invisible disease instead of using science and logic, and having too much self pride to accept Korean made test kits to increase the number of daily tests. The j-gov needs to be replaced by people who care about the country and the people, not people who care about saving their face and lining their pockets with gold.

It's unfathomable how anyone can do this to their own mother. What a low life.

On a serious note, Japan needs to do more research on mental illness. This is a big societal and cultural issue in Japan, as Japan already has more than twice the mental illness patients per capita than any other country in the world. This is not something to be ashamed of and hide it under the tatami. Every country has their good and bad points. You need to address these issues, otherwise these stories will just become the norm.
