Posted in: Coronavirus third wave puts many Japanese hospitals on overload See in context

Third wave? Any country can seemingly create waves by increasing and decreasing the number of tests as and when desired.

More blatant proof that Abe's pathetic policies on 'export controls' had no impact on Samsung and the South Korean economy.

Seems like the local governors have higher IQ than the LDP government as a whole.

Only 100? Similar to other figures reported, this is also understated by about 90%.

Thanks Japan. And now you wonder why China is this big mess now.

Wins??? What kind of propaganda is this? The J gov will lower the standards at all costs to achieve their image. Just look at how they lowered the safety standards at Fukushima.

Posted in: After unpredictable Trump, Biden presidency will still be challenging for Japan See in context

Not to worry. I'm sure Suga will have learnt from his bum chum predecessor that it's best to brown nose the US president and then everything will be rosy for Japan.

Posted in: Japan sees near-record 1,547 coronavirus cases in possible 3rd wave See in context

Not to worry. Japan's got a good handle on this. Just crank down the testing a little bit more and then the cases will drop. Need to maintain that safe image.

Posted in: S Korea expresses concern over any Japanese radioactive water dump See in context

The way Japan has been handling this, and all other disasters, has been a disgrace, on par with North Korea. No plans, ignore experts, reject international monitoring, and just drag on and on and on. And then they have the audacity to blame neighbors for raising concerns.

Posted in: Japan urges S Korea to present solution over wartime labor row See in context

I’ve to commend Japan’s persistence with trying to normalize fallacies. Experts, Japanese lawyers, and even international organizations such as WHO have all commented that the 1965 treaty did not cover slavery nor sex slaves. Even, governments prior to Abe admitted that these claims are uncovered by the treaty. Yet, we have these looney tunes from the LDP trying to ensure the floodgates of individual claims do not open, not only from Korea but from the rest of Asia. Grow a pair Japan!

Posted in: Japan's total coronavirus cases top 100,000 See in context

Japan spent $10 million bribing WHO to reclassify approx 700 cases from Diamond Princess as international conveyance in order to save face and the Olympics. Money well spent, NOT!

Posted in: Suga says plan to release Fukushima water coming soon See in context

This J gov is so incompetent. First, Suga said he was going to release the water swiftly, then after the protests Suga decides to delay the release, and now Suga said he will come up with a plan soon. They should have come up with a plan 9 years ago FIRST. Complete joke!

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.

The protest by the Peace Philosophy Center, based in Vancouver, Canada

Satoko Norimatsu, who heads the peace advocacy group

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.

With certain countries contemplating boycotting the games next year due to the pandemic, shouldnt the government consider begging the athletes to come to Japan instead?

Posted in: Abe plan for land-attack counterpunch could mark major military shift for Japan See in context

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?

Why so many people with fever for 4 consecutive days in Japan? And how many with similar symptoms were rejected by the gov for testing? Obviously, numbers make no sense in Japan.

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.
