The uploader chose Youtube, the biggest video-sharing website instead of the mass media. In this case, the media were mere followers or "free riders" in other words. It's hilarious that the media who criticize the uploading of TV programs had to rely on the video-sharing website.
I believe the person wanted the truth be revealed and didn't want reward from the media, and he/she probably thought the media were unreliable, which I completely agree with.
The videos show absurd conduct of the Chinese ship, and they clearly support Japan's stand point.
Then I can't find any reason to conceal the videos. The videos can't possibly degrade Japan as those who already watched know. Unless the Japanese government prioritized China over Japan, the concealment couldn't have taken place.
Some people insist that it was reasonable because we need to maintain good relation ship between Japan and China. However, true friendship is never based on excessive indulgence.
The Japanese government tried to conceal the videos despite the fact that they completely support Japan's explanation of the collision. The government insists that the videos which included the top secret were "leaked" by a "criminal," but my understanding is almost opposite from the government's view.
The uploader accused the government of the almost treasonable concealment, and he/she bravely enabled us to watch what we were entitled to watch. The government should be thankful to the uploader because the person made up for the government's erroneous decision.
During the conference after the exposure, the chief secretary Sengoku criticized the uploader saying that it was unacceptable, but again I have to say "the way the government including you treated the videos was unacceptable."
Chinese violater was released desipite the obvious illegality, and now the government is determined to single out the uploader who is seen as a patriot.
Which do you think is more acceptable?
This picture explains the intention of the steersman.
①The steersman didn't steer and let the ship go straight.
②The steersman tried to avoid collision.
③The steersman steered leftward to intentionally bump into the ship. This is the case, and it's too obvious to have alternative views.
PS. A member of Japan Marine Self Defense Force confessed that it was him who uploaded the videos.
I claim that he should never be arrested since he acted for the national sovereignty and citizens who belong to the nation. I'm ready to do a signature against his arrest and I believe the majority of the Japanese are feeling the same way.
