#1 China is working overtime to get these two countries at each other's throats.

#2 Blaming China? There is plenty of bad blood between Korea and Japan without having to blame foreign bogeyman. It was suppressed for a long time and now things are going back to normal. Both Japan and Korea think of themselves as the best race on the planet. When they had it out, Japan got the better of Korea and this is the consequences.

#4 There are a few Korans still alive today who were real slaves under the Japanese. You think the 'slave' circus here many generations later is out of hand, multiply that 10 fold there.

A Korean acquiescence asked me once why only two bombs?

#5 So, SK don't like Japanese because of the last century. Their first clash with Chinese was in 4th century BC.

#7 Japan is not as DPRK sympathetic as ROK.

#8 Historically, there has always been animosity between China, Korea and Japan. No love lost between any of them. Koreans and Chinese like to pretend that it's all Japan's fault but the history goes a lot further back than WWII so I find that difficult to believe and we all know how the Chinese like to keep the pot boiling.

Is Herb really a Chinaman?

#9 I'm seeing a baby getting tossed out with the bathwater here. Come on guys, are things really so hunky dory over there it is a good time for Japan and SK to get into a spat? You may have been played.

#10 Not hunky dory. It's just that the SORKs need to get over it.

#11 Herb was stuck somewhere in HK methinks.

Everyone will agree that Japan had really been a summbitch all up to their meeting with Fatman. Before that, they just didn't know the meaning of co-existence.
