stop or block the shipments of high-end/high-class French/California wine and cigars to the regime.

When Kim Jung-Un and his party mates drink poor-man's Chinese wine laced with fake ingredients and fake Chinese cigar, that's the time NK regime will ask for a serious talk again.

At least 100 Billion Yen yearly legal remittances from NK residents in Japan should be banned too. Japan should target also illegal money remittances thru Chinese contacts and at least stop sending bicycle, electronic parts from Akihabara including second-hand notebook-PC and gyroscopes which end up in NK rockets and submarines.

Also stop the package sent to NK from used-clothing and used Skii-wears and gears from Japan. Never allow the Mangyongbong-92 ship to ever dock in Niigata port.

Tne Rules of the Road in Japan states that, unless you are in JIDOUSHA-DO (car-exclussive road) or Kousoukou-Douro (Expressway or Freeway), the KING/QUEEN OF THE ROAD is the PEDESTRIAN or PEOPLE, whether they are mentally-challenged, children, centenarians, Cell-phone Zombies, day-dreaming or schizophrenic etc . DRIVERS are just slaves or commoners.

In Japan's RULES OF THE ROAD, turning left or right REQUIRES JOKOU 「徐行運転」DEFENSIVE-DRIVING at all times. JOKOU DRIVNG MEANS: up to 20 or 25km/hour so that when you hit the break, whether your car isvery old model (with no ABS) or relatively-new, will come to SUDDEN HALT.

It is written in the RULES of the ROAD that before turning left or right, you must look for pedestrian or bicycle specially when it is blingking for someone might be catching-up for the change of traffic light.

EVEN IF THERE IS NO TRAFFIC LIGHT, JOKOU-UNTEN is a MUST FOR ALL DRIVERS and before turning must look 270 degrees (specially for the possible pedestrian).

ASSUMPTION 「Maybe there is no one crossing / だれも横断していないだろう Known as DAROU-UNTEN だろう運転」is a crime in Japan and is part of the RECKLESS DRIVING OFFENSE.

Instead of DAROU-DRIVING, it should be "KAMOSHIRENAI" DRIVING.  横断する人がいるかもしれない。(Maybe there somebody who is about to cross the street)===> IS THE RULES OF THE ROAD IN JAPAN.

Were all the victims armed with knives too? or were they ambushed when they were about to go back to their apartment building. If this is the case, this is a premeditated MURDER case where the culprits planned and well-armed already before the encounter with the victims.

too bad, there's a lot of Chinese, Indian and South Korean students there including masteral, doctorate and post-doctorate degree courses. Not only to these two above-mentioned universities but almost all higher-learning institutions in the USA from the four corners of the continent even up to upstate NY, University of ALbany and University of Rochester etc. TOYOTA is making research for the Chinese and Korean car makers at the same time.

Japanese students in the USA is only about 1/10 or 1/20th of Mainland Chinese students. Yes, I am referring to Strudents of Technology and Advanced-Science courses, not English conversation courses.

Posted in: Japan committed to nuclear power despite Fukushima disaster See in context

Nuclear power capacity worldwide is increasing steadily, with over 60 reactors under construction in 15 countries. By the time Tokyo Olympics started, more than half of these 60 under constructions will start giving energy to the people of the wolrd.

Many are biased again with Japanese Government decision as if they live here in Japan. For you to know, this is the best move by the Japanese Government. There is the human error factor but Japanese safety standard is the safest practice, or one of the safest in the world. Those nuclear reactors facing the Pacific, due to its multiple tectonic plates should be postponed for the time being until the back-up power-supply are put on higher grounds. The rests of nuclea power plants must be restarted as soon as possible. The 7-nuclear reactors in NIIGATA, even though near the sea can be re-started too. I lived near this plant a decade ago when two powerful earthquake, THE CHUETSU and the Chuetsu-OKI earthquake happened with intensity-of-grounbd-shaking or SHINDO SCALE of 6+ (2nd highest ground shaking acceleration).

Also, we are paying for the SOlar or Renewable energy. Consumers are paying for every KWHr energy given by small-to-mega solar power producers in Japan, as mandated by the FIT LAW. When the SOlar plants are giving to the grid from 10 AM to 3PM, the COAL/LNG Power Plants are still running because it takes a long time for them to shut down and restart again, even though at DAYTIME HIGH, the SOLAR ENERGY GIVEN to the grid sometimes OVERSHOOTS the total energy required. And WE RE PAYING ALL THOSE idle energy produced by coal and LNG. They are all written in items in my MONTHLY ELECTRICITY BILLS. Unless, otherwise, enough STORAGE for SOLAR energy like NAS Battery and Powerful (new-Gen) Lithium Battery are not mass-produce, NUCLEAR PP should be opertating up to 10 years from now.

Posted in: Nuclear reactor switched on in Kyushu despite protests See in context

Except for Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant in Shizuoka facing the Pacific (Nankai Draft), I am one of those happy supporters that at least 16 nuclear reactors will be put back to operation. 16 x 2,000 MW per reactor, that's a lot of fossil fuels to be saved. Japan economy will be greater. Each nuclear power plant (with 4 reactor per power plant) employs direct workers numbering to several thousands.

I want all nuclear reactors until NAS Battery or Large Lithium Battery storage technology (just like the one used in Japanese Submarines) are widely applied to all SOLAR Power Plants. This may take 5 to 10 years from now to mass produce NAS Battery and/or Large Lithium Battery Storage.

Posted in: By The Numbers: The atomic bombing of Hiroshima See in context

@ASAKAZE:

When the Soviets declared war, who was afraid or concerned about it.

The USA wanted to end the war before the Soviets joined the invasion is TRUE (or more accurately half-true. The other half was from the Japanese side itself). But as SFJP330 said, JAPAN itself wanted to surrender as soon as possible before the SOVIET started to join Japan's invasion. Atomic bombing could had been the right timing. (When the Soviets made decisive victory in Machuria on August 8, both the USA and Japan were (separetely) concerned of the effectiveness of the Soviet Army. It was, in fact, the declaration of war by the Soviets and the invasion of Manchuria along with the bombings of Hiroshima and then Nagasaki that finally forced the Japanese to surrender. Had the Soviets been given the opportunity to invade from the north (from HOKKAIDO), it was no secret that the atrocities committed by the Soviets would be catastrophic to say the least (given past behavior in Eastern Europe, Germany notwithstanding). Japan was so afraid of the atrocities and evil deeds of the Soviet Red Army. They were more afraid of the Soviets on Japanese (women's belly or in-between legs) than American bombers overhead. Whether the Soviets can land tanks and heavy equipment on Japanese shore in August/Sept/Oct or in 1946 or 1947 was out of question. Japan would surrender before the Soviet start to land in Hokkaido. The USA would continue bombing Japan Cities so as to fast forward Japan surrender. Although by August 1945, the USA had only 3 atomic bombs, for sure before the year 1945 end, 5 or more can still be manufactured. And since they were very expensive to make, the USA will use them all at that time until Japan surrender before the Soviets join the invasion.

Posted in: First reactor restart may be delayed a day to Aug 11 See in context

This is really good. The more nuclear reactor starting to operate, the better for Japan's economy. One nuclear reactor is about 2,000 MW of Power. Imagine the IMPORTATION MONEY spend by Japanese Government for natural gas and coal Power Plants currently being operated since 2011/March.

With the nuclear power plants in japan start to operate, the prices of oil and LNG and coal will be pushed further lower. This is good to all developing countries and poor citizens of the world.

I just wonder whether Erica has all the microprocessors, circuitry, voice-pickup sensors, batteries etc inside here bodies. or maybe there is a wire and communications link into a remote server with powerful CPU (more powerful than Octacore CPU) that processes all the information. If all the circuitry and CPU (including information processing) are inside its body, then we are close to Android revolution era.

Posted in: Do you think the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were morally justifiable? See in context

Morally justifable?

I agree with SFJP330, air raids and bomb run using hundreds of thousands of conventional 500-lb, 1000-lb/2000-lb bombs and incendiary bombs, killing hundred thousands (some even more than the Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined) is morally the same as 1 atomic bomb killing same number of people. If the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are to be subjected to war-crime case, ... morally and justifiably ... , the Fire-bombing of Tokyo, Dresden and other cities should also be subjected to war-crime case.

Support the Tokyo Olympics preparation effort of the government. Fireworks can be done in other places in a matter of 1 year planning. Since they are using barges, they can do it offshore near the shorelines Yokohama, Tokyo Disneyland (in between KASAI Rinkai-Koen) or Chiba. There also the Edogawa, Arakawa, Tamagawa and other fireworks festivals in Tokyo.

I heard that Japan's closet government officials in the Philippines, including President Aquino, are about to step down in 2016 (June or July). The Philippines is known for patronage politics, and if the next president is from the other party, the 2 Billion US Dollar grants will be wasted. I suggest for Japan to give the Philippines in KINDS (coaches, trains, and electro-mechanical equipment) and the contractors and main engineers who will do the rail projects should be JAPANESE.

The atomic-bombing, fire-bombing of Tokyo, Dresden and several cities of Germany should never be repeated. But it is good to have nuclear missile to prevent one from bullying. And actually it prevents war of epic proportion. So if Japan is no longer under the mutual defense treaty with the USA, I suggest that Japan should also have nuclear weapons.

Posted in: Tokyo’s Setagaya Ward to begin legally recognizing same-sex partnerships See in context

The homosexuals are very active in every forum and expressing their rights and privilege. They already have it. No need to charge or accuse those who oppose them as bigots etc etc because nobody is giving them the right to declare that those who oppose them are bigots and their new idea is the right one for this new era. They have rights and privilege already at work and in society but "Same-Sex Marriage" is too much. As I have said before, some of my uptakes were erased by the admin, homoseaxuals dreaming of marriage as emulating the BIOLOGICALLY-OPPOSITE side has some form of mental disorder.

The only reason they want to have same-sex marriage is LOVE which is a very vague thing. They never think that there was/were SUPREME BEINGS who designed the wonderful human anatomy. Imagine that, God had created the greatest human anatomy, one example is that clitoris and g-spots are created inside women's organ. And these some homos are dreaming that they have them inside their anus, imagining the pleasure of sex. They let the tadpoles swim over human dumps and sheyts. Another God's wonder is the mammary gland. That is the wonder of being a woman. Men who are imagining and using these glands for pure sexual fantasy, and nothing else really need medications. I recommend ANDROCOR TABLETS for these homos.

@SFJP330

YES, I agree. YAMASHI didnt know this. If the war in the Pacific continue, America cannot stop the USSR of not joining in. And when the war ended and the Soviets are already in Hokkaido or northern Japan, Japan will be divided by the participating Allied Nations. America cannot expelled Allied Nation (the Soviet) and monopolized Japan after the war. So while there were not Soviet boots on the ground, the US should end the war as soon as possible. I am sure that the US Think-Tank were smarter than the Chinese CCP at that time who only believe in the provisions of the YALTA Conference.

@ YAMASHI,

having read the YALTA conference and make your uptake based on it makes you sound a CHINESE-CPP educated fellow rather the the Japanese-sounding name you are using in this forum. Classified information during the 1940's to 50's were not taught to Chinese historians even though those information were already de-classifed already in the past decades.

Americans during the 1898-1901 Full-scale war against the Philippine troops had committed equal atrocities with that of NAZI and IJA. Well documented atrocites was when Gen. Lawton was killed by sniper in Manila and when 66 US Infantry was ambushed by transvestite (cross-dresser) Filipino troops, dressed as women and grandmothers. The US General assigned in Samar and Leyte killed virtually all Filipinos ages 10 and higher. Even old women, they killed them point-blank range because West-Pointer attitiude (and Wild-West) attitude considered that time that guerilla warfare like fighters blending in the local population was ILLEGAL and BARBARIC.

@ YAMASHI:

For those who do not know yet including you, PRes. Roosevelt talk secretely to Stalin to help invade Japan because of the relatively high US casualties in the Pacific Island-hopping campaign. Stalin had in mind the strategic importance of Japan. Before the official surrender of Japan, Stalin (thru his far-east general) talk to MacArthur of having Hokkaido (at least) be in the hands of the USSR. It's good thing that MacArthur replied "OVER MY DEAD BODY". If Pres Roosevelt was still alive, he could have allowed to participate in the invasion of Japan.

The greatest recipient of Japanese Soft Loan in the 1970's up to 90's was CHINA. All the soft loan (including ODA grants) given by Japan to the rests of the world, when all combined, are even less than what China had received. However, China's anger toward Japan had never subsided, rather it even intensified.

The Philippines on the other hand, offered friendship since 1952. The Philippines returned/repatriated hundreds of prisoners-of-war including several dozens of war criminals already convicted of Death Penalty, some were scheduled to be executed on that year.

Atomic bombing prevented the creation North Japan and South Japan as independent country just like South/North Korea, South/North Vietnam, East/West Germany. Large Army (even greater than the US Marines and invading Force) were already in Russian Far East and Sakhalin for the planned Japan invasion.

Well it's good thing that it never happened. For the past 20 years, I drove several times to northern Japan from Tokyo for Ski. People there are friendly and the scenery are great.. and the best thing happen in Japanese life is that a parcel of its homeland was never ruled by the Soviet.
