  1. JAPAN HAS COMMITTED EVIL AGAINST CHINA AND NORTH KOREA …BUT IN THE EVENT OF WAR JAPAN WILL BE DESTROYED VERY FAST…JAPAN HAS BEEN QUICK TO INVADE OTHER COUNTRIES AND COMMIT CRIMES BUT THEY ARE AFRAID TO PAY THE PRICE …CHINA WILL ONE DAY DESTROY JAPAN

  2. BIG MILITARY BUDGET EVEN TRILLIONS WILL NOT SAVE JAPAN FROM NUCLEAR AND HYDROGEN BOMB FROM CHINA OR NORTH KOREA

  3. South Korean mass media shound not sensationalize Japan`s defense budget by using an incediary expression such as "a record high defense budget proposal". The increasing rate of defense expenses is only 1.2%. They should be much more concerned about North Korea`s development of nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles.

  4. asian countries should pay attentions to japans re militarization ambitions. right wingers are ruling japan and imperialistic ideology is growing again.

  5. Seem like the Japanese has proven that they are still a threat after all to its immediate Asian neighbors not just China or Korea. But also a threat to South East Asian country! The Japanese building up military and using American made weapon is not acceptable. This tells you that Japan is still in U.S leash in Asia. China was right all along from this point on.

  6. I hope japan doesn't buy american made equipment. It's assembled by jews, mexicans, blacks & catholics. They'd be better off building their own.

  7. Japan is preparing to confront China and not Korea. Because China’s strength is such that it already controls part of the US corporate sector and pursues a policy of gagging and censorship.
