About a month ago I posted on an Asahi Shimbun piece about Iran that suggested that Japan was more worried over losing rights to an Iranian oil field than the growing tension over the nuclear programme. After mentioning this in commenting on a post at Mutant Frog (a blog on life, culture, and politics in Japan particularly and Asia generally), one of the writers did some research and within a few hours posted again, setting me straight. Good work, guys!
If you have any kind of interest in Japan or Asia I highly recommend Mutant Frog. It’s intelligent, well-written and entertaining. I’d rather be proved wrong by them than anyone else on the net. (End plug)
