  • Jul 26 2013: Let us hope that this is the theme everyone actually follows, truly, not just with words. Remember also that Japan chose never to possess nuclear weapons even though they could easily build them. This makes China a far greater threat to them than Japan could ever be to China. Ever since world war 2 Japan has had problems getting men into its military because their terrible history makes it an almost unclean occupation. At the moment there are no real threats to world peace like there were say before world war 2: Nazi Germany and imperialist Japan. There are very few countries with the desire for expansion and power that these two countries possessed in the past. None have that combination of great military power and a desire to take from others. China just wants success, to be a great nation, Russia also and is too poor to build its military at the moment, the US loves to influence others, sometimes by force but not to invade and literally take over the country permanently like say the roman empire did. India wabts to be one of the greats but has too many problems of its own like poverty and the rest of the world really jusr want a peaceful world to get on with making money.

      Jul 26 2013: Thanks for your commend you said that Japan chose never to possess nuclear weapons but china have nuclear weapons .It's a great threat to them ,but china also promised that won't be the first country to use nuclear weapons if Japan does't develop nuclear weapons they won't be attacked by nuclear weapons from china and recently Japan wants to amend the constitution ,I think it is a dangerous sigh ,what's more I want to say is that chinese don't have the ambiton to invade other countries while Japan always worries about that china will take action on them Ithink it's really unnecessary .chinese kown that we are in an age of develoing we need peace we very treasure peace you know we paid heaveliy in the world war Ⅱ
