Strangerland: "Society has decided that 15 year old's lack the mental capacity to be able to provide consent, which is why there are strong laws against sleeping with minors."

You can keep cutting and pasting this line all you like, but you've been called out on it and are once again wrong on the first part. Age of consent is 13. Period. So, obviously, society has deemed them mentally able to decide to have sex from 13 -- at least with other minors. The second half of your cut-and-paste is right -- there are strong laws against sex with minors. You never have been able to admit when you're wrong, though.

When Japanese politicians popularity is at record low levels, the sheepish citizens will be rallied against NK, SK or China. Now they have the Russia distraction.

Drink spiking has been a problem in Tokyo for decades. Just Google 'drink spiking Japan', and you'll see the embassy giving warnings about it 20 years ago.

Neither Russia nor China are communist. They are dictatorships. The only way Japan will ever retrieve the Northern Territories is if Russia democratizes.

Phtephen,

Nearly a 300% increase from yesterday

It's an 165,4% increase, but sure, I'm sure that's almost exactly approximately nearly maybe-with-squinted eyes something like 300%. Gold star for mathematics (give it back after class, though, it should remain our secret.)

Also, after three years into this, you should know that Monday's news report Sunday's low-because-Sunday numbers.

The 7-day rolling average is still going down, steadily. Today it's below 40,000 for the the first time since last October.

'He also said the government maintains its stance that it will seek to "resolve the territorial issue with Russia and sign a postwar peace treaty despite the current severe state of bilateral ties."'

Not even pretending they aren't trying to play both sides. haha. Anyway, much as I hate Russia, the islands are theirs. Period. Japan has had chances to get at least two back but refused as they wanted them all. Now, they have none, and it'll stay that way.

This is not so unusual in the US, so it is understandable that non-US citizens cannot fathom this type of travel.

I've flown from coast to coast with my company, or with friends in their private jets; it is completely normal behavior for them.

If they are in NYC and they want to go to Malibu for the weekend then they will do it in their private jet, and take off from a regional airport and land at a regional airport thereby bypassing JFK, or Newark, or LAX for example.

So for the Super Bowl, it is not surprising for Americans to see that people are flying to Vegas in private planes.

Russia is not in the habit of returning stolen lands.

Communist countries are not in the habit of returning stolen lands.

Fixed for you. And some people here insist in saying China/Russia are not communist.

Well communist's may not give land back either, but the original statement that RUSSIA is not in the habit of returning stolen lands is acurate and factual.

maybe Australia return all it stolen land

To who? Australia is ruled by those born there, with the odd exception of new citizens from other nations joining the political system. England took the land and set up colonies. Those colonies joined to become federation of Australia and is no longer ruled by or from England.

So these Australians, born in Australia some for many generations, should give the land back to England? Assume it was given to aboriginal tribes for a moment. They are unable to defend their land and for all the rich resources, how long before a strong nation invades and takes the land for all its riches? China, Russia or even the US could move in and claim ownership. The nation of Australia is run by its inhabitants and that will not alter now.

Maybe you could encourage your own country to give back all the continental United States to its indigenous Indians, and show the world how it is done??

I am not one for defence of Russia in any of its recent guises but, in the interest of facts over ideology, the USSR gave up territory in Europe, most notably parts of Austria. This was as a result of the prior plans for partition of Europe between the 4 major victors.

The dispute ultimately boils down to the imprecise language in the San Francisco peace treaty. Japan renounced sovereignty over "the Kuril Islands" (not the Northern Kurils or just some of the Kurils). If Japan wanted to keep some of the islands, they could have insisted that the US occupation forces draft the treaty with more precision. As it stands, the Soviet Union's position that sovereignty had been abandoned across the entire chain is not unreasonable.

That was so clearly NOT what was said in Yalta

The Kurile Islands shall be handed over to the Soviet Union.

No, ifs, buts, "only the parts by Greed", not "give priority to Potsdam and Cairo", not "Southern". Just "Kurile Islands."

Further, in 1952, the Japanese signed a treaty to renounce all rights to the same "Kurile Islands". The Soviets weren't a signatory, but you can't renounce and not renounce at the same time.

Frankly, the West doesn't have a real leg to stand on in this one, and their attempt to insist what's clearly not in the text is the "true interpretation" is best described as collective Russophobism.

In the perfect world, Putin and his like are purged from Russia and it becomes a good European citizen

And yes, communism corrupts the very core and values of societies they happen to poison. A shame to Russia, East Europe, a disgrace to all those once great white peoples! Russian culture is truly invaluable. Or it was until 1917.

Honestly, do you know any communist country on Earth that wakes up one day and says "yeah, this is not working, guess we can stop and give up being communists" ?
