US would be stupid to give in because the Japanese will take the bigger slice of the pie. We have to have a backbone oe look stupid.

The TPP is a bad deal for Japan. The market will be flooded with cheap GMO food from the US and Japanese farmers will not be able to compete on price. Farmers are already been driven out of business and the TPP will not help the country feed itself. Japan is overdependent on food imports now and this is something that should be reversed, not increased. Down with the TPP!
