自民党はTPP反対だって、消費税増税だって、国民の風向き次第、”新しい判断”で、ポロッと撤回してしまうのが常。

蓮舫の嘘どころの話ではない。

靖国問題、慰安婦問題、竹島問題、拉致問題などなどの安倍の態度はすべて生半可以外のものではない。

常に生半可であったし、日本のメディアや、そして、右翼も、その生半可を許してきたわけだ。


改正反対派からすれば、あの草案は叩きやすいから、撤回を否定してもらったほうがありがたいだろう。

半島は緩衝地帯にならない。

2016-09-26 02:27:45 | Weblog

ビデオニュース・ドットコム2016年09月24日 20:01遂に核兵器保有国となった北朝鮮とどう向き合うか



 武貞氏は北朝鮮の核武装は、アメリカに対する交渉力を得ることが最大の目的で、核を持つことでアメリカに、北朝鮮は簡単に捻り潰せる相手ではないと認識してもらうためだという。しかし、北朝鮮の真意は、アメリカが朝鮮半島から手を引けば、北朝鮮主導で朝鮮半島の統一が可能になるというもの


だろうね。




で、それは日本にとっても受け入れがたい状況だ。朝鮮半島から地政学的にも至近距離にあり、北朝鮮との間に拉致問題を抱える日本は、この状況にどう対応すべきか。



受け入れがたくとも、そのことを想定して、対処しないと、

そもそも韓国が緩衝地帯になっているとか、緩衝地帯になるという想定が間違っている。

大陸の国家の多くがそうであるように、日本も自国と敵対する国と国境を接しているのだ、という意識をもって安全保障を考えていくべき。

そして、いままでアメリカの言いなりにしてきて、北朝鮮の核保有化を止められなかったのに、これから、アメリカを頼って何かができる、という想定にも疑問をいだかなかれば。

Jeff Kingston is NOT an expert on Japan

The list of journalists and commentators who are Sex Slave Deniarsの続き。

Rightists distort author Park Yu-ha’s views on ‘comfort women’
BY JEFF KINGSTON
SPECIAL TO THE JAPAN TIMES


この人は日本での論争を全く理解していない。



Based on Korean comfort women’s testimony, Park believes that recruitment was largely based on deception rather than coercion



だから、日本の右翼が引用するんでしょう。

論争のポイントは何だっかというと、韓国人慰安婦が、朝日新聞の吉田清二や韓国の記事のいうように、日本軍によって強制連行されたか否かだったのである。

This is why Right wingers often quote Park Yu-ha’s views

The point of the dispute was whether Korean women were "forced" into prostitution by Japanese military
Asahi and Korean media---and most of English media also---used to claim that the recruitment was coercion by Japanese military.
Asahi turned out to be wrong. *1





but she believes the consequences for all these women were horrific; none were free to leave once recruited and all were subject to military discipline.


多くの慰安婦が悲惨の状況にあったのは、右翼でも、小泉でも安倍でも認めている。

Even the statement by right wingers admit it.



Sakurai and other Japan conference folks.


Sadly, many women were made to suffer severe hardships during the wretched era during World War II, and it is with profound regret that we contemplate this tragic historical reality.


Koizumi


As Prime Minister of Japan, I thus extend anew my most sincere apologies and remorse to all the women who underwent immeasurable and painful experiences and suffered incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women



Abe

I am deeply pained to think about the ‘comfort women’ who experienced immeasurable pain and suffering as a result of victimization due to human trafficking



Practically none were free to leave the job and they continued to work as "comfort women" for U.S. soldiers recruited by Korean government after Japanese military left.




And for Japanese deniers, she inconveniently points out that “it appears that recruiters were often pairs of Japanese and Korean men.”


That's not inconvenient for Japanese right wingers: they know there were Japanese recruiters.


That's inconvenient for Koreans who claim as if they were innocent.


The comfort stations were closely monitored by the Japanese military


That's not secret. Again. U.S. document which right wingers are more than happy to cite confirms it;
The conditions under which they transacted business were regulated by the Army, and in congested areas regulations were strictly enforced. The Army found it necessary in congested areas to install a system of prices, priorities, and schedules for the various units operating in a particular areas.


Note also comfort stations for U.S. soldiers in Korea were also closely monitored by U.S. military: The military feared the spread of STD.


Kingston---I guess I can validly call him a American nationalistーーー conveniently ignores the fact that the similar situation continued even after Japanese military left: afterwards, they were forced to serve for U.S. military servicemen.


Despite the fact that former Korean comfort women for U.S. military asked for help, most of U.S. media and expats who blame Japan for sex slaves remain silent, leaving Korean female victims hopeless.



Japanese scholars and journalists had been critical of their government and spoke up against it. The consequence is the establishment of The Asian Women's Fund and the apologies by prime ministers.

Why is it American scholars and journalists keep trying to hide and deny the dark truth about Asian Sex Slaves for U.S. soldiers while blaming Japan ?


Most of American expats are as much nationalistic as Nippon Kaigi guys;though, they are unaware of it.

Lastly I doubt JEFF KINGSTON can read Japanese texts and communicate in Japanese well enough: almost all of the documents he cites are articles in English, he makes such misleading statements that he wouldn't if he could read and write Japanese texts and I've never heard of him speaking and writing in Japanese.

Journalists who write on Japan---you don't have to write an article in favor of Japan.
But please check the facts and restore the sense of fairness and justice in journalism, please.


他にも、軍服に似た国民服の存在とか知っているのか怪しいとか、元慰安婦の証言についてどれだけ知っているのか、などいろいろつっこみどころはある。

* 1 But note that there were individual cases where women were kidnapped ;however, Japanese police or military cracked down on the crimes.

McCurry (guardian) is a blatant liar

2016-09-26 02:26:07 | Weblog


McCurry is talking about Korean comfort women here.

Let me note first that the Korean victims' testimonies were produced many years later after the war. Therefore, to quote from True Stories of the Korean Comfort Women


many can faintly remember the sufferings they endured.




However,




1)Yoshimi 吉見 従軍慰安婦

(P92-111)。

 だまされた事例
 朝鮮からの徴集でもっとも多いのは、だまされて連れて行かれたケースだった。(略)途中で、おかしいと気づいても逃げるすべは無く、故郷に帰ってもいいことはないとあきらめ、待っている仕事はそんなひどいこともないだろうと思い直し、なんとか前途に希望を見いだそうとしながら、最後に軍慰安所でつらい現実に直面させられたのであった。
 身売りされて
(略)
 売られて慰安婦にされた女性も、多くの場合、前渡し金による経済的拘束と詐欺がからみあっていたことがわかる。(略)
 
 暴力的連行のケース
 (略)
 彼女は、中国東北の軍慰安所に入れられる。拉致した日本人は、軍人か、巡査か、カーキ色の国民服を着た民間人か、断定できない。しかし、夕暮れ時であること、連れがいないこと、民間人らしき人物に引き渡されていることなどから、民間人による誘拐の可能性が高いのではないだろうか。もちろん、警察がこのような犯行を見落すか見逃すということは、軍から慰安婦送出への強い要求があるのだから、ありえたことであろう。



2)Hata 秦 郁彦 慰安婦と戦場の性(p192)

朝鮮半島においては日本の官憲による慰安婦の強制連行的調達はなかったと断定してよいと思う。




3)Park Yuha


When I examined the initial testimonies of former Korean comfort women, none of them claimed she was coerced by the Japanese military. The majority of the Korean women were sold by their fathers to the comfort station owners. Some Korean women were recruited on false pretenses by the Korean comfort station owners. Other Korean women were in the world's oldest profession, and they did volunteer to earn good money.



4)Sarah Soh



5)Yuki Tanaka Japan's Comfort Women

most ”recruiting" seems to have been done by local Korean sub-contractor....
The most common expedient used in Korea was deceit --false promise of employment in Japan or in other Japanese occupied territories.(p38)



6)ATIS Research Reports No. 120 Amenities in the Japanese Armed Force, Nov. 15, 1945,

.RECRUITING;
The contract they signed bound them to Army regulations and to war for the "house master " for a period of from six months to a year depending on the family debt for which they were advanced

Misleading.

日弁連、「死刑廃止」宣言へ 冤罪事件や世界的潮流受け
阿部峻介2016年9月3日13時43分



日本弁護士連合会が、組織として死刑制度の廃止を掲げる方針を固めた。重要テーマへの対応を決めるため全国から会員が集う10月の「人権擁護大会」(福井市開催)で、宣言を提出する。日弁連は死刑廃止に向けて社会的議論を活発化させてきたが、相次ぐ冤罪(えんざい)事件の発覚や世界的潮流を受け、初めて明確に「廃止」を打ち出す。



The Japan Federation of Bar Associations has been calling for the suspension of all the death penalties since 2002 to discuss the validity of capital punishment. Considering recent wrongful convictions and the world trend against the capital punishment, the federation has decided to declare that it is time to abolish it.


おれも死刑制度は廃止したほうがいいと思うね。

A literary guide to hating Barack Obama
Inside the right-wing anti-Obama books, from 2008 to 2016

By Carlos Lozada August 25



In “The Obama Nation,” published in August 2008, Jerome Corsi paints Obama as a racial and religious opportunist, a compulsive liar, too beyond the mainstream to become president. The best-selling book, one of the earliest tomes in the Obama hatred literature, is a conspiratorial jumble. Corsi questions Obama’s commitment to Christianity, for instance, yet constantly links him to a radical black liberationist version of Christianity, all the while suggesting that Obama is secretly sympathetic to Islam. He speculates that Obama has hidden the Islamic education he received during his childhood in Indonesia — “again, we simply don’t know,” Corsi writes — and suggests that, thanks to his Kenyan-born father, Obama “could claim to be a citizen of Kenya, as well as of the United States.” (In 2011, Corsi would go on to publish “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President,” though, unfortunately for his sales, the book became available shortly after Obama made his birth certificate public.)


Corsi is a fan of guilt by rhetorical question. “If Obama takes pains to hide his smoking from us, what else does he take pains to hide?” The contradictions in this book are not hard to find, as they sometimes appear in consecutive sentences. “Obama, we argue here, is and always has been a radical on the far left,” Corsi writes. “He is at heart a coldly calculating politician, driven more by winning at all costs than by the lofty principles he espouses.” So what is he: a radical ideologue or a shameless pol? Yes. Both. Whichever one scares you most.



D’Souza believes that Obama is at heart an “anti-colonialist,” mixing socialist economics with an anti-imperialist foreign policy, supposedly inspired by the beliefs of his Kenyan father, passed on to him by his American mother. Imbued with a certain “low cunning,” Obama has sought to redistribute global wealth away from the United States and scale back American military and financial influence around the planet, D’Souza writes, “so that America can no longer impose its will as a neocolonial superpower.”



If you accept that Obama is corrupt and determined to undermine America, it’s a short step to Ben Shapiro’s “The People vs. Barack Obama” (2014). Shapiro, a lawyer, radio host and editor of the conservative site the Daily Wire, lays out in vivid prose his case that the Obama administration has become “a full-fledged criminal enterprise.” IRS abuses against conservative groups, the Benghazi attack, the targeting of reporters, selective prosecution of undocumented immigrants — that’s just the start. Shapiro details multiple laws the president and his underlings have supposedly violated and calls for prosecution under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.




The left takes for granted that much of the opposition to Obama indicates latent racism, a visceral resentment at seeing a black family in the White House. That is a serious charge, so it is no surprise that these authors sometimes protest that their views have nothing to do with the color of the president’s skin.


D’Souza states simply that Obama gets a pass because he’s black. “Obama has also injected fear on the right, and inspired giddy enthusiasm on the left, by playing the ‘race card’ in a way never previously done in American politics,” he argues.



右翼による反オバマ本

一方でキリスト教徒として怪しい、イスラム教徒ではないか、と疑いをかけながら同時に、やつは、黒人解放過激派のキリスト教に傾倒していると批判したり、喫煙していることを隠蔽しているくらだから、国民にほかにも、何を隠蔽しているかしったこっちゃない、とか、外国人の父親の影響を云々して悪く言ったり、ここでも法を犯している、あそこでも法を犯している、と因縁をつけて、非難したり、人種カードを使って批判をかわしている、などさまざまな本が出版されているようである。


蓮舫に関する日本の右翼の批判と似たところがありますね。

国内の右翼界隈では、これで、祭りになったり、飯が食っていけるのかもしれないけど、アメリカや日本の政策・国益には、ほぼどーーーでもいいようなことばかりですね。


建設的な政策論争を期待したいものですね。

水しぶきマスターベーション器

2016-09-25 03:23:25 | Weblog


She got older. She bought a vibrator. But then she got sick of it. Or, rather, she got sick of what it was doing to her orgasm. “With a vibrator, you get instant gratification. You can get an orgasm within two minutes.” After a while, she felt that the vibratory power her toys provided were dulling her sensitivity. “Even with the highest vibration setting on my Hitachi, I wasn’t feeling it.” That’s when she went back to scooting under the faucet,



Hitachiって日立だろうね。で、マッサージ器のことなんだろうね。これを女性性器にあててマスターベーションしていた、と。2分以内でオーガズムに達するが、だんだん麻痺してきて、”強” にしても、感じなくなってしまった、と。

それで開発したのが水しぶきマスターベーション器。

日韓スワップ再開するバカ

2016-09-25 03:09:43 | Weblog


日本は再開すべきか?
 以上から分かるように、日韓通貨スワップは日本による韓国ウォンへの保証協定です。日本側のメリットは韓国通貨危機発生が、日本経済に影響を与えることを防げることですが、必ず再開すべきというほどには大きくはありません。世界金融危機後にシャープなどの日本家電メーカーと韓国企業との競争が厳しくなりましたが、為替については、ウォン安は一時的だったので、どちらかといえば円高の影響でした。

 日本にはメリットもデメリットもそれほどないため、通貨スワップ再開は政治判断となります。韓国の反日・親中的な政策の流れで満期終了した経緯もあるため、再開には日本国民の納得のできる条件も必要でしょう。少女像の撤去、竹島、不透明な為替介入、二股外交などさまざまな問題がありますので、私は単に以前行っていたものを再び行うという流れでの再開は必要ないと思います。議論の中で、これらのような広い範囲の利害関係を日韓双方で確認してからにすべきでしょう。


竹島返還してくれたら、再開してもよいんではないか?

US police are shooting African Americans and white people equally.

2016-09-25 02:16:10 | Weblog


The truth is that the raw statistics can't tell us whether the police are treating African Americans differently from white people. To understand that, we'd need to look at more details about what happened in each incident. There's a big difference between a case where someone was shooting at the police, and a case where someone was passive and unarmed.
One person who has tried to do that is an economist from Harvard University called Roland Fryer, the first ever African American to win the prestigious John Bates Clark medal in economics. This month Fryer released a preliminary study examining records from 10 cities and counties, with the best data coming from Houston - it's not yet peer-reviewed, but it has received a lot of attention in the press.
Fryer's research suggests that African Americans and Hispanics are substantially more likely to experience force in their interactions with the police - such as having a gun pointed at them, being handcuffed without arrest, or being pepper-sprayed or hit with a baton. This racial difference is reduced, but doesn't completely disappear, when Fryer adds all sorts of statistical controls such as whether the incident was indoors or outdoors, in a high-crime area, took place at night, and so on.
However, Fryer doesn't find any racial difference in the cases where police offers actually shoot someone.
The debate over this continues, both on the streets and in academia.


数からいうと、警官に殺されるのは白人の方が多いんだけど、状況が個々のケースで異なるので何とも言えない、と。

もっとも、ある学者の統計によると、警官との交流で、拳銃を突きつけられたり、手錠をかけられたり、催涙スプレーを吹き付けられたり、警棒で叩かれたりなど暴行を振るわれるケースは、黒人とヒスパニックのほうが、かなり多い、と。

ただ、現実に発砲されるケースでは、人種による違いは見つからなかった、と。
