Iraq is a PR problem for Japan -- really

Official: Iraq War a PR Problem in Japan

The dispatch of Japanese troops to Iraq - a deeply unpopular move here - is a public relations problem caused by ungrounded fears about the region's stability, Japan's defense chief said Friday, vowing to turn around public opinion.

``Through the eyes of the Japanese people, the situation in Samawah is very bad, dangerous,'' he said. ``It is a public relations problem.''

Ono, who visited the Japanese camp in Samawah last month, said he was convinced the situation there was stable and that the troops' efforts were welcomed by the local Iraqis.

He said he regretted not having reporters accompany him on his trip and said he was exploring the possibility of allowing media into the Japanese camp in order to give the public a better idea of the situation there.

I think the Japanese eye sees quite clearly.

See, Rove's virus is catching. Ono wants a 'new reality' for Japan.
