Posted in: Kishida calls for greater military capability, spending See in context

Japan should be put on a tight leash by the US lest Japan starts another war. History has shown Japan starting wars when they thought they had a strong military. Japan's warmonger politicians should never be trusted.

Then why does Japan make such a fuss when some other countries honor their people who died or suffered in the war? (E.g. when Koreans put up a statue to "comfort women")

The words " double" and "standards" come to mind...

Well said.

Posted in: Kishida says Fukushima wastewater release can't be delayed See in context

Have people forgotten? Tritium isn't the issue here. It's the other radioactive isotopes that the Japanese made filtering system failed to remove. All because the jgov didn't want to use state of the art US made systems.

Posted in: Vaccines, masks? Japan puzzling over sudden virus success See in context

More propaganda Japanese style. Test at similar levels to advanced countries before calling it a success, shall we. Even Singapore has a higher vaccination rate than Jaoan yet records over 3000 cases per day. The difference.... testing is free unlike Japan where you need to fork out a fortune.

You are missing the's not that it's safe as it comes out the pipe, it's that it will be safe after it's diluted into the vast pacific ocean....that's what makes it safe.

No, Aso Taro said you can drink the water as is, and lots of armchair experts (who have typically been brainwashed) on this site said the radioactive level is far lower than what's in tap water.

Posted in: LDP most popular; nearly 40% of voters undecided ahead of election See in context

That's because LDP have got this on a formula. Educate kids to be really brainwashed. Then come election time, repeatedly bring up issues with abduction, Dokdo, comfort women, military spending. Et voila, the LDP is popular again. Ain't matter if government is printing more money or average Joe is becoming African poor.

visited Yasukuni Shrine, which honors convicted war criminals

And most Japanese wonder why the neighbours are putting up a stink over this. When you wipe out approx half the korean population in 1592 and over 20 million during WW2, who wouldn't cry foul over people honouring these criminals. I'd like to see Japan honor the heroes who nuked Japan and saved them from total extinction. But I guess double standard is the norm here.

Japan's the worst place to manufacture semiconductors from with its frequent earthquakes. But I guess the money thrown by Jgov is irresistible.

Posted in: Nippon Steel sues Toyota, Chinese company over patent See in context

Didnt the Japanese steel company get caught for falsifying data? Japanese companies are now starting to distrust their own suppliers. Even Japanese shipping companies bought multiple ships from their archival Korea this year (probably expected considering the recent spate of Japanese ships breaking up). Not a good sign for Japan.

rip off of many Original Japanese films

Most absurd thing I've ever heard. Even that boy group claimed that BTS copied them. If Korea is better at something, it's a rip off. If Japan is good at something, it's the original. Too much sour grapes. Maybe Japan should stick with geishas. Then you'd be guaranteed no rip off by any other countries.

No, the first step is to stop whining about what politicians in another country do in their own country.

LOL, isn't that exactly what the Japanese politicians are doing? Trying to influence south Korea's judicial ruling against war criminal companies? [facepalm]

Just the official numbers. Everyone knows that the jgov numbers are all bs. Positivity rate is prob the highest in the world, all due to Japan’s world renowned minimize testing regime.

Posted in: 3 cabinet members, Abe visit Yasukuni Shrine; Suga sends offering See in context

Japanese politicians’ all time favorite activity = provoke their neighbors. And the Japanese wonder why their neighbors act like that. Will the Japanese still honor the war dead if they killed their mothers or sisters? Knowing the Japanese mentality and honor system, it would be a full blooded revenge. The hypocrisy just amazes me.

Posted in: Man arrested in train stabbings says he suffered rejection in relationships See in context

In a society that heavily revolves around tatemae and honne, any slight complaint or rejection perceived by people is considered a mortal attack on their honor. It’s one of the major reasons why Japan has so many mental health patients per capital in the world, double the next highest country. People need to realize it’s ok to have a dent in your honor.

Posted in: Japan's explanation of Korean wartime forced labor insufficient: UNESCO See in context

Btw, it's so Japanese to label anyone who criticizes anything to do with Japan as anti-Japan, even at the expense of disowning your own citizens. Eg. Abe's gaffe about Japanese not supporting the Olympics. I criticize my government, but no one calls me anti american. Maybe if you accept that there are issues with your country, then Japan can start to reverse its process of extinction.

There is no excuse for this one. Japan had in fact received approval from South Korea for this heritage site on the condition they would acknowledge the truth of what happened there. Obviously it did not. I highly doubt they will change it.

I recalled you whined about the pesky Koreans complaining about this. Why the about face?

Another UN body ridiculing Japan's pathetic attempt to whitewash history.

Other UN bodies already ridiculed Japan for lying about the 1965 Korea Japan bilateral agreement, and the 2015 Comfort Women agreement.

Truth hurts Japan, but that's what happens when the Jgov revolves around fake propaganda.

That's interesting. The interweb tells me Airweave is owned by a guy named Motokuni Takaoka. He's a relation of the suddenly invisible Shinzo, is he?

I think Airweave provides the mattresses. Mitsubishi Shoji Packaging provides the cardboards. This company is owned by Hironobu Abe, brother of Shinzo.
