I demand you take "you have the right to know" out of your thread titles, that is an outright lie. This is privileged information.


It is a public knowledge when it was first seen on a public news provider, the Anime News Network: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-11-20/japanese-russian-heads-to-discuss-joint-doraemon-anime

I'm afraid the problem runs deeper than that. For you see, as a first world nation, Japan is utterly defenseless with its Self-Defense Force throughout history. Without the UN order, The Japanese Self-Defense Force(JSDF) cannot even conduct humanitarian mission during a time of crisis. The most recent example would be the 1995 Hyogo Ken Nanbu (Kobe) Earthquake(http://www.asianews.it/view.php/len/feed/rss/it/files/img/index.php?l=en&art=1818):


On the day of the Kobe quake, the first JSDF chopper took off an hour and 28 minutes after the first shock. When the Niigata quake struck, it took the JSDF seven minutes to have their first reconnaissance chopper fly over the affect area. In rapid succession, 2,700 soldiers in 1,000 army vehicles and 80 aircrafts and helicopters were on the ground engaged in rescue operations.


That delay was mainly due to the waiting time for an official UN order to arrive at the air force base, but since then the JSDF were given automatic authority to respond to earthquakes over a certain magnitude, which proved to be vital during the 2004 Niigata Earthquake.

But even so, the JSDF were useless for the North Korean abductions of Japanese victims and their families during the Cold War era(http://nettv.gov-online.go.jp/eng/prg/prg1786.html).


Ooo I heard that during one of my study - halls... I accidentally went into the wrong study hall. it was west wing not east.. but U.S should be more lenient, Plus the U.N should help the Japanese's JSDF in emergency procedure.. Basically the U.s allowed the Japan have their own defense force but do nothing upon helping them organize themselves upon a disaster. At least help Japan train their defense forces.. U.N can only do so much of as to order them around. Basically it leaves the JSDF in a bad position. Like with FEMA during the Katrina incident in the U.S. they didn't respond quick enough and most ignored the warnings. Also they provided trailers that had toxic chemicals that made people sicks.. It's the "particularly" same situation but different approach in my opinion, if you really looked at it closely. Usually ties with gov't s not getting involved but just letting the fishing swim with a broken fin... SO what you saying is after the Kobe quake U.N allowed JSDF to take full authority over rescue operations.... Common sense to actually let a defense force to be dispatch in a crisis. It all leads back to the government's political leaders who are too slow to come up with a common yet suffice decision in time... That's why I hate politics.... They are either bias, have no common sense, or the political people who serve that gov't are corrupt. I end my nonsense statement there.


As the old saying goes: "those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it." Politics are what's needed in order to affect changes in people's lives, but for the politicians who make those policies that affect us all, often times they aren't the right people for that job. What I want to say is, you can dislike certain politicians because of their poor ethics, but when you need to change certain policy, you need to rely on politics.

ehh I agrees i guess.. without politics there would be no order....and no change in peoples way of life.... Hoping the Obama becoming president would help end the economy recession, and that one issue with missile defense system they're setting up near the Middle East. Apparently Russia doesn't like that idea, might have a repeat or a new chapter of the Cold Wars.? you agree or no..? (out of topic but still politics)

I highly doubt it. Unlike how things were during the Cold War era, Russia now is both enjoying and embracing the free trade economy. So if I've to guess Obama's next move, it would be scraping the Middle East missile defense system all together. Besides, building missile defenses all over world won't help US with its economic recession, IMO.

That would be a wise choice for removing the missile defense system.... Anyways I'm going to research more on this in my free time if you don't mind.. Sounds kind of interesting

Well here's a start in the right direction, Making Sense Out of Russia's Free Trade Initiative: http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=2604


It is ironic that in an age when both theoretical and practical cases for economic freedom have become so convincing that even the European left now accepts free trade as a way forward for the poor people across the world, unilateral liberalization seems as difficult as ever. Instead, countries continue to rely on their political power in free trade negotiations. Russian diplomats are well skilled in the art of "realpolitik," and all realists recognize the importance of negotiating from positions of strength.

Therefore, far from being an alternative to an eventual economic integration with the EU, the CES is its obvious precursor. If successful, over the next decade the Russians will establish a free trade zone of significant economic power and potential. That will enable the former Soviet Republics to negotiate with Europeans and Americans on a more equal footing.
