Who is Aso? The new foreign minister?
Tarou Aso, the former minister of public management was appointed Oct. 31th the Foreign Minister of japan. Don't call him asshole. He is Aso.
He looks very difficult, because his mouth is disformed. But I found a charming aspect of him.
He threw a party to comfort supporters the other day, disguising himself as a shogun, dancing like a fool.
As for his stance, it seems to be a bit aggressive. "Don't provoke massmedia to a quarrel," his wife advised to him.
Aso Taro's Biography:
He is known to have British accents because of his studying history in London University.
He allowed someone to witness him reading a comic book in Narita Airport. Well, I must say that he is VERY wierd.
But the policy is quite normal, having a hostile policy against China. This is one of Koizumi's aims. Dove politicians have been eliminated from his cabinet.
He commemorated a Korean victim of a subway accidents on his way back from a meeting between Japanese and Korean foreign ministers Nov. 15th. The commemorated is a Korean (26) who tried to save a Japanese kid into the rail and run over by a coming subway in 2001. Aso's visit is reported from Kookje, ytn, and sbs, all Korean media, as far as I know.
This activity could be his performancee, but we need to calmly observe his intention. Funnily enough, none of Japanese massmedia didn't report it, but repeat Korean demand that Koizumi don't visit Yasukuni shrine.
I perceive that the Japanese massmedia are the only ones which foment both citizens.
IT CLEARLY SHOWS AN ASPECT OF A LOT OF CENSORSHIPS HAPPENING IN JAPAN! IT IS NO LONGER A DEVELOPED COUNTRY.
