Posted in: Man suspected of fatally stabbing woman in car found dead in hotel room See in context

Ms Osawa shouldn't have agreed to meet this loser alone and she definitely shouldn't have hopped into a rental car with him. Even if she wanted to meet, it should have been in a public place with someone else with her. May her soul rest in peace. The man is a pathetic act and very selfish individual. Already married with kids, you don't indulge in this stupid act and leave your kids fatherless.

Posted in: Japan, China discuss restarting mutual business travel See in context

Is this also a bilateral issue? What's special about business travellers that other travellers like holidaymakers don't have or do have? The virus does not discriminate, and why should business travel between China and Japan OK but not between Korea and Japan? Illogical thinking.

Only a fool doesn't change course when he is sinking in the polls. The first law of holes " stop digging when you are in a deep hole".

Posted in: Man arrested for posting libelous comments about mother of missing girl See in context

Libel is not a criminal offence so why did the police arrest this man? If the woman feels aggrieved by the statement made by the man, she can file a civil suit against him The police doesn't come in. This man has not committed a crime.

Posted in: After mixed messages from White House, Trump said to be improving but next 48 hours 'critical' See in context

I have no doubts he will recover not because he is resilient as Boris Johnson says but because as President of the United States, he will receive the best possible medical attention. The question remains whether Trump will learn anything from this. You bet only a visit to the ICU like it happened to Bojo in April would make Trump learn something. if he gets better with only mild symptoms, he would just dismiss it as only sniffles.

Posted in: Japanese actress Yuko Takeuchi, 40, found dead at home in apparent suicide See in context

If this was suicide, it is very selfish in her part given that she has an infant child born this January. Did she ever think of the impact this will have on her children? Awful.

Posted in: Japan's foreign policy likely to continue on path set by Abe See in context

Whoever wins the next election will only serve out the remaining term of Abe. He ( and it is most likely he) will be booted out at the end of Abe's term for a new leader.

Posted in: Suga set to join race to succeed Abe, media report See in context

Ishiba Shigeru San is the best among the lot but I am afraid he won't win because the LDP Diet members don't like him. I am OK with whoever emerges winner so long as it is not Aso. The next PM will be gone before the end of 2021 back to the revolving door.

Posted in: Abe says decision to resign before accomplishing his goals 'gut-wrenching' See in context

Ulcerative colitis or not, Japan deserves a new PM. Abe has spent all his political capital, there's none left. He needs to step down and resign from the Diet so he can have a good rest.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Posted in: Who is next after Abe? Potential successors See in context

Please NOT Aso, please. Anyone but Aso. I think Ishiba is the best choice but he lacks support among LDP kingmakers. Ishiba is the mist popular candidate among the public and among grassroots LDP chapters around the country but LDP lawmakers hate him.

This guy has been poisoned many times in the past but he survived each one. He will survive this one too. Putin is the devil incarnate. The latest in the story is he has been airlifted to a specialist hospital in Western Europe.
