I really do consider Japan to be our sister nation. The bond we have with Japan is remarkable considering the history we have them, with World War II and the Atomic bombing of two of their cities. It's amazing what can happen when you stand by a nation and help rebuild them after a devastating war while allowing them to grow their own democracy. I really do think that allegory should be drawn upon more in the current situations in Afghanistan and Iraq. That being said, Japan has been a remarkable ally, a nation so interlinked with us that our pop cultures are interfaced and our citizens are treated like nationals both at home and abroad for the both of us. Japan is currently leading a push to strengthen the Pacific Alliance between themselves and India, as well as with Australia, and the United States. China feels snubbed. Good, they should. Unless you live in a shell you know what is happening with Chinese products being so tainted as to essential create a situation where it is nearly necessary to avoid the Made in China label entirely. They have been moving to keep their human rights violations under wraps, have had a few slavery rings exposed, have silenced their own trapped miner situation, and thrown accusations at the United States about the quality of our own products in a futile attempt to get out of the spotlight. The alliance the Japanese seeks to strengthen revolves around "freedom, democracy, and human rights," none of which are exactly strong points for China. That's not to say they haven't improved, if only marginally, or that they will not improve greatly in the future, it's the truth. If the Chinese really wanted to engage the international community more they'd be a bit more transparent and honest as well as provide greater human rights to its own citizens. In fact, Japan has refers to its partnership with India as the "Arc of Freedom" another direct shot at the Chinese as it is well known that the Chinese aren't exactly sold on the idea of freedom, after all they censor their media at the government level (not just the political level as is done by our Leftists) from TV broadcasts to the Internet. Of course, it's not just in America that problems exist with what is being manufactured in China. However, there is one media conglomerate that seems to sympathize with the Chinese and have some animosity towards this new deal. Click here to find out which media conglomerate is veiling sympathizing with China and is siding with Indian moonbats in opposing this alliance, in particular the nuclear potion with the U.S. I won't ruin the surprise...OK, it's not such a big surprise. Not surprisingly the Leftists in India feel that their leadership is weak and seems to have a very strong animosity towards the U.S. At this point you can use this guide when dealing with the moonbats in any country, even our own:
Leftist in ______ (Criticize, Express Caution/Outrage Over) _________ With/In The United States.
The difference between a nuclear program in India and one in Iran of course is transparency, a willingness and an invitation to have the IAEA involved in the program as well as having their representatives present at all nuclear negotiations with rock solid evidence of all activities and purchases. Huge difference. However, I wish the Indians well in dealing with the moonbats of their nation. I also commend greatly the great nation of Japan. On another note, please note how the Liberals kept saying how horrible our relationships with other nations were with other countries that were traditional allies thanks to President Bush. I'd like to point out our relationship with France has not been this strong is a long, long, time, Germany, Britain, Japan, India, and Australia have never been closer and that President Bush has very good relationships with Canada, and for better or worse (because of the immigration insanity) a very close relationship with Mexico. He also seems to have a good report with the Russians despite their inching back towards their former roles during World War II, but for the issues of comparison the friendship between Putin and President Bush is not just based on that of alcohol and women like Yeltsin and Clinton.
