hmmm, China at this point has had issues with Vietnam, the Phillipines and Japan over contested territory that CHINA CLAIMS. Yet, it is everyone elses fault but their own, sounds like an angry teenager mad at the world. At what point will it get to when maybe you stop and realize that China is the one encouraging this stance, stop being childish and foolish. I fully support Japan in this regard, with the sheer magnitude of China and its military capabilites and with such aggressive actions of late, every country in south Asia has a right to defend their people from such a threat. At this point it is clear China is launching a propaganda machine against Japan for WW2, in order to completely dismember the military stance, because clearly in this region Japan among few others would be the only country to stand a formidable defence against such aggressive actions from the worlds second largest economy. Bravo and carry on Japan, peace through superior fire power.

By divesting from China and investing in the other poorer countries is how Japan will be able to help. Why make your enemy strong? The others around China could do better quality work at about the same price. Now that we had found the true nature of the clever monkey, once helped will now be taking everyone else’s, we should be wise enough not take away the help the world is giving him.

This guy. He is confused whether he is an American or a Japanese just what Hitler was in the past. Hitler wasn’t born in Germany, or did he? This war face called Abe, He spent too many years in the States. Is he even a Japanese? I have a feel that he is going to start World War 3. May i remind everyone on Earth that Japan and Germany did have solid good reasons to go to war with other countries in the past, but when the war started, all that reason were proved wrong. And that is fascism. Don’t trust this guy.

Good on Abe for calling China out on their irresponsible behaviour in the region. Very glad to see that Japan and the other countries will not be bullied by China.

yes, China’s rise is putting a lot of pressure on the US. All those terms of bullying, provocation etc from China are relative terms, depending on which side you are on. Philippines and Vietnam, even Japan, are standing on the US side, because they are taking advantage of the US pivot to Asia. They all have their own interests in mind. When interests conflict, they will gang together in a natural way. There is no right or wrong. It is hypocritical for some nation to always emphasize international law when they themselves have ignored the law. Law is a lever they can conveniently use when it suits them.

International law did not solve the Crimea annexation. International law did not prevent the illegal invasion of Iraq. Even the US is not recognizing the law of the sea at this moment, but asking others to abide by it. The struggle is geopolitical, and can only be handled by diplomacy and relative strength of each nation.

Intervening into some conflict between other countries is the last thing that a responsible Japanese leader can do.
Abe should not do anything with confriction between foreign countries, likewise no such way we can take for making own problem solved by this evil manner.
Really despicable shameful deed to render, he must have serious lack in acquiring decent Japanese culture in the first place.
He has no common word with Asian neighbors because of himself without sufficient literacy for east Asian culture.
While he can’t be decent Westerner either.

Speaking of which, his colleague Aso is also well known in his less capability in not reading Kanji as only literature that he can read is said to be Manga(comics).

I don’t think of USA really having an idea to give a UN Council seat to Abe, no matter what he sacrifices.
Just Abe alone relies on them as if he were given the word.
Crazy, how would they give a damn to the Japanese when they think of us to be some creature less worse than a bug.

Abe is not qualify to lead Asia as he will not bring peace but war. See what this liar Abe did:

1. Deny Tokyo Trial
2. Deny comfort women
3. Deny WWII war crimes
4. Changing constitution for imperail army return and bring back evil emperor to be head of States.
5. Openly admitted himself an extreme right member in front of UN.
6. Increase military spending even under US protection.
7. Worshipped the ghostly WWII war criminals Shrine as an great insult to all WWII victims. There is no hero there.
8. Keeping the stolen islands that is not belong to Japan which JP needs to return to China after WWII defeat.
9. Changing school text and put incorrect history to school children.
10. Still not repent from WWII compare with Germany which is much much better than Japan.
11. Hiding the nuclear weapon materials which violates the constitution. Now return to US becasue under US pressure.
12. U.S. alarmed about plutonium stockpile growing from Rokkasho plant.
13. Lying to the whole world saying China digital military spending in past years. Compare in 2013 military spending, Japan is 40 % of China and China is 30% of US.
14. Showing Abe is a two faced man. One saying Japan needs to improve China relationship but on the other hand trying to contain China with other countries.
15. Family backgound: Abe is from the famous WWII war criminal family member. His grandfather Kishi ws a key cabinet member of the evil imperial Japan army.

Abe and his ally going to ultranationalist direction making anger of neighbouring countries. In fact, Abe’s objective is to bring back the lost glory of the evil imperial Japan army.
