Japan backed the wrong side in Syria and is doing so again in Venezuela
Its a master slave relationship. They have no choice.

I see this very worn out notion is STILL being dragged out. abe is out of his depth here. I only empathize with the families whose grief is constantly used for political pandering.

If there's real democracy in japan,then this should be the beginning of the end for probably the most crime laden PM in recent history.

Just this week, in describing myself and some childhood friends, I used the term "little monkeys",
Did you call them primitive though?

Curious though. Does anyone think the buck will stop with South Korea? There's so many other countries that were pillaged by japan that didn't 'sign an agreement of understanding' you can only deny responsibility for so long. It's only a matter of time.

Taking a tragic event and profiting from it. Classic greed.
Plus lest the obviousness is lost to some but there's a reason it's no longer inhabited. I'm thinking there's no hazmat suits in the package.

THIS ladies and gents, is japan. Seeing as the populace has a 'cant be bothered' attitude, this story should be forgotten sooner rather than later with this dinosaur going on to denigrate someone else later.

Nothing. That's Japan's dilemma, as Japan has no leverage over Korea
Ouch! Facts hurt when you reside in your own bubble of lies.

Whats this democracy you speak of? Abe has dodged more scandals than can possibly be counted. If japan was truly democratic, he'd not be PM at all. Japanese need to borrow a leaf from South Korea about how to deal with wayward leadership

just ignore what your intel people have told you. What would they know?
Well seeing as you're a huge proponent for war, put your money where your mouth is and saddle up!!!

Talk about a fly in ointment. The only end result of japanese involvement at this point in time is failure.

Any nation meddling in another nation's political affairs is bad.
Awesome. Glad we agree.
(Note: I despise black-white answers, but made an exception in this case thinking that's the only way partisan extremists - and trolls - understand things).

Absolutely nothing will change. Any other true democracy would have retired this fossil.

So... EU, US meddling good, Russian meddling bad? I'm curious what the russiagate crowd thinks. The silence is deafening.

The never Trumpers on here must be ecstatic at this blatant meddling in another sovereign country's affairs. The irony is obviously lost on them.

And so it will probably end badly for Venezuelans. Is there anyone who thinks Maduro will voluntarily step down? He has prepared himself to not be another Salvador Allende.
I bet you think the 4000$ russia spent on facebook ads to troll the elections was a bad thing, right? How exactly do you reconcile that thought process with support for meddling in Venezuela's matters?
Oh and Allende was also removed by empire using the cia for the unmentionable crime of not following orders and thinking of his country first. Seriously, how does this sit well with you?

Well seeing as it's had one party monopoly except for a few brief moments, I'd say he's spot on.

If this atrocious abuse of justice occurred in any other 'democratic' country, there'd be calls for regime change. But,you know, TIJ

In any other truly democratic country, this would be grounds for impeachment. The world keeps on spinnin

six years after Abe's return to power, nominal GDP had grown to a record-high 550 trillion yen as corporate profits scaled new heights and unemployment fell to the lowest level in 25 years.
Gotta love that sweet sweet smell of propaganda
