Japan needs to re-calibrate its foreign policy in double quick time. It should reduce its over eagerness to depend on the United States for tackling the gorilla in the room: China.

Japan can do this by cozying up to Russia and South Korea while redoubling its efforts and pace in further deepening ties with India.

This is the important fine print one can read in the President Barack Obama’s recently concluded visit to Japan, the first state visit by an American president to Japan in 18 years.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is a shrewd politician who has the will and the capability to restore his country to its pristine glory. He should separate the chaff from the wheat in what Obama said and did not say during his trip to Tokyo.

ZeroHedge – Dozens Of CIA, FBI Agents “Advising Ukraine Government”, German Press Reports – 4 May 2014

ZeroHedgeNow that the situation in Ukraine has officially been upgraded to “war“, what really happens on the ground will remain largely wrapped by the fog of war on either side, with just one thing assured: a war it may be but more than anything it is a proxy war – one in which both western and Russian interests are manifest in the fighting, and killing, of mostly innocent civilians in Ukraine – a carbon copy replica of what happened last year in Syria.

ZeroHedge – Nerd Prom Summary: Highlights From This Year’s Obama Roast – 4 May 2014

ZeroHedgeIn theory, the media is supposed to keep any given administration, even that of hope and change, “honest”, and to report its flaws, failings, criminality and hypocrisy. In practice, this never happens, since the bulk of US, and global, media outlets are owned by a handful of corporations which in turn do everything in their power to preserve the lucrative arrangement in which the administration pretends to administer, and the media pretends to do its job.
