A former prime minister spoke at a conference in India urging stronger India-Japan military cooperation and warning of the danger posed by China...and also likely picked up a check along the way.
C'mon, who else could it be?
Meanwhile, in his continued inspiring turn as an ex-premier with a clear sense of vision and a conscience, Koizumi Jun'ichiro spoke out against the nuclear power industry's deceptive accounting of the costs of nuclear power and strongly advised a rapid development of renewable energy sources to replace Japan's reliance on nuclear power and oil (ja and ja).
Should it be so hard to imagine a Koizumi Jun'ichiro/Kan Naoto cross-party tag team renewable energy advocacy movement in the near future?
Time to unpeg the renminbi
