Posted in: One year after arrest, Ghosn seeks to throw out case against him See in context

Ghosn was not under any legal obligation to disclose his earnings so he should not have been arrested on this charge in the first place. Nissan could have dealt with this as an internal issue in the same way Saikawa' s cade was dealt with.

It was a tight game as expected but the Springboks were always going to be on top. Against England it could go either way. England starts as favourites but the books can win this one.

Posted in: S African power ends Japan's run at Rugby World Cup See in context

The Brave Blossoms put up a fight, particularly in the first half but they were always going to be outplayed, outgunned, and outmanoeuvred by the Springboks. In fact the scoreline could have been much worse than this if the boks had been a little more focused and not dropping passes the way they did. This beautiful run by Japan in World Rugby Cup was always gonna come to an end. They lost to a better side.

Congratulations to SA, better luck next time to Japan.

Posted in: Rugby World Cup quarterfinals: Major rivalries and a surprise package See in context

Japan has had a great tournament but this beautiful run will come to an end this Sunday. Against the almighty Springboks, the Brave Blossoms have bitten more than they can chew. A good game is expected but the Springboks march on to the semis at the end of the day.

Posted in: Springboks go for experience against Japan See in context

It's gonna be an interesting game and a tight one. Some how the fairy tale story of Brave Blossoms will end and it is going to be this Sunday against the Springboks of SA. All good things, call it good runs in this case, must come to an end. Will the Japanese passion for the game end with the elimination of this team, Blossoms that have surprised everybody including themselves? Ganbare Nippon !

Posted in: Scotland referred to disputes committee over Japan match comments See in context

It was great the game was allowed to go ahead and Japan qualified on merit by beating Scotland. It was a thriller of a game. Fans would have been deprived of such high level entertainment if it had been canceled. I have problems with the tournament's rules particularly on cancelation and why games cannot be rescheduled but I guess until the rules are changed, it is what it is.

This team has had an amazing ride. Will it end at the quarter finals or will it continue? The Springboks of SA are an amazing team alright but this year is Brave Blossoms year. Go Japan.

This is criminal negligence. They should have evacuated the crew from the ship before the typhoon hit. It is irresponsible to leave these guys on board when a massive typhoon like this is approaching. The shipping company has to take responsibility.

Posted in: Ethiopia PM Abiy wins Nobel Peace Prize See in context

congratulations to PM Abiy of Ethiopia for winning the 2019 Nobel Peace Price. Africa's youngest leader more than deserves it. His vision and boldness to initiate peace with Eritrea has resolved the longstanding stalemate and low intensity war that had existed between the two neighbors. May be the awarding committee should have given it jointly to PM Abiy of Ethiopia and President Afwerki of Eritrea. It is time for PM Abiy to turn his attention home and make peace with the Oromo people, return their lands and stop disenfranchising them.

Posted in: Frayed Japan-S Korea ties should not affect security issues: Abe See in context

If you are ready to fight, you must be ready to give and take punishment. The best boxers can give and take. Abe is behaving like the playground bully that he is with respect to SK. He hits but if you hit back, he cries maa maa and runs to hide in his mother's (US) dress.

Abe and Japan can't take a punch. They are happy to dish out punishment but not ready to take a counter punch.

Trump will renegade on the agreement by raising tariffs on Japanese automobiles to just 5% from the current 2.5%. You know he threatened a 25% tariffs on Japanese cars. He will call Abe early next year to tell him doubling the current rate is nothing,

Posted in: Japan fails to track N Korean missiles in recent string of launches See in context

This is serious. Japan should go begging South Korea to admit it back into the intelligence sharing agreement (GSOMIA) else Kim Jon Un would nuke Tokyo without Tokyo being aware. I have all along called Japan's eagerness to punish South Korea for that court ruling childish play. Now you see the consequences. Abe must start waving the white flag and call Moon to apologize.

The head of Asian Development Bank (ADB) must rotate among Asia's economic powers. No one country should have monopoly over the top job. China will definitely challenge Japan's stranglehold on the position.

Why Japan? There are virtually no catholics in this country, yes virtually none. Why not Philippines for example which has a huge catholic population. So he is in Japan because Abe wanted a photo op and wanted the pope to preach an anti nuclear gospel non believers?

Posted in: Nissan chief Saikawa to step down Sept 16; successor to be named See in context

Saikawa will not be punished for obvious reasons ( not legal reasons)

He is a Japanese, the others are gaijins.

He helped them get back control of Nissan from those gaijins.

In their eyes, he is a whistle blower a and a super nationalist.

He has confessed. Admitted his sins and apologized.

He has offered to return the money.

What he stole is a lot less than what those gaijins did.

Saikawa is a future hero. While Ghosn is credited for saving Nissan from bankruptcy in the 1990s, Saikawa will be credited in the future for saving Nissan from foreign takeover.

For these reasons the guy is not going to jail.

Posted in: Nissan chief Saikawa to step down Sept 16; successor to be named See in context

Saikawa San appears to be saying Ghosn and Kelly set up this Stock Appreciation Rights system of compensation. I didn't know a thing about it and they used it to steal a lot more money than I did, so spare me and let me return the extra cash. But deal ruthlessly with those gaijins. And the prosecutors appear to agree with him.

Posted in: Black votes will define electability for Democrats See in context

Trump will be re- elected by the same people who put him in the WH in 2016; Putin, the KGB and the Russians. You don't lose the popular vote by over 3 million and get to win the WH. It doesn't happen. If Moscow Mitch refuses to let the Senate debate and pass the bills to protect the integrity of US elections, Russia will meddle in it again to produce the same results as in 2016. Mark this on the wall somewhere. Trump could lose the popular vote by 5 million + but the Russians know which states they need to target to change the results in favour of Donald Trump. American democracy is at the mercy of Putin and the Russians.

Africans want win - win investment in quality infrastructure and don't care where it comes from, Japan or China.

Already Japan is losing out to China that's why they are throwing all these subtle jabs. What the Japanese government can do is to encourage the private sector here, Japan's big multi nationals to invest in Africa.
