I'm wondering if Japanese foreign policy will ever diverge from official U.S. views. They just follow the gospel. Read the headline below:

France-Russo-German stance on Iraq worries Japan

Japan on Wednesday warned that a declaration by France, Germany and Russia urging an alternative to a US-led war on Iraq could send the wrong message to the regime about the international community's resolve.

"There is a concern that this may give Iraq the wrong message," the government's top spokesman Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasuo Fukuda told a news conference. "It is necessary for the international community to react firmly to this situation with the same way of thinking," he said.

If they can't find their way out of a paper bag over their heads, trying to reform a stagnant economy, and following things as "business as usual" conducted by the "old boys club" from behind the scenes, until them old boys pass on or retire, there will be very little change, except for reactionary ones forced upon them by the outside world.... :D
