– A person who has something to say about everything
The reason Japanese have a tenuous territorial awareness is that ours is a country of natural borders, surrounded by the sea on four sides. The country is ranked 59th in the world in the size of its territory, but it has the sixth largest EEZ. That’s bigger than China’s, and it’s the reason the Chinese are acting in such haste. That’s why they’re coming to take our territory, no matter what they have to do.
