Posted in: IS teen 'shocked' after UK revokes her citizenship See in context

I would actually have more respect for this woman if she didn’t run from battle, and remained steadfast to her cause, — no matter how mistaken.

Instead she runs from danger and tried to be accepted back into Britain while saying “ISIS is still totally cool though.”

Let her rot.

Deep-fried as tempura, in stir-fry or ground into paste and mixed in mochi or tea.

while expressing no regret over having joined IS.

Well then, you may continue to rot in your ISIS camp with no regrets.

Posted in: 67% plan to vote against U.S. air base transfer within Okinawa: poll See in context

As for people supporting the transfer plan, about 55 percent said safety issues surrounding the Futenma base need to be addressed.  why do they keep bring this BS argument up, J police statistics show Okinawans comit more crimes per capita than US marines in Okinawa, and its also shown than Japanese also comit crimes in other countries so that excuse is debunked.

They are referring to the safety issues involving having a busy airfield in the middle of a residential zone.

The problem with this vote is that it was set up by the protestors, specifically to gain as many nay votes as possible. Indifferent or supporting voters will not go to the ballots on a Saturday. They have better things to do on a weekend.

Hopefully this will be brought up in the Diet Monday morning: Abe then either admits it and the opposition wipe the floor with him, or he denies it and effectively calls Donny a liar.

Or Abe could just say, “I can’t disclose or discuss that for 50 years.”

So Trump is jumping the gun and disclosing information because he’s sure he won’t get the nomination but wants the publicity?

Posted in: Tokyo to ban parents from physically punishing children See in context

Not to mention this places the blame totally on the parents here, but what about the government agencies charged with overlooking the welfare of the children?

The blame for child abuse is totally on the parents. Are cops to blame for crime? Are the trains to blame for gropers? Are cars to blame for accidents?

This story leaves out details such as, the fan pulled his arm hard from behind to shove a pen and signboard in his hand while he had his hand raised, and waving to the crowd. The Dragons had issued an advisory about handing out autographs, as overly aggressive hawkers try to obtain autographs to resell on net auctions.

MP units standing by in the guard house are always armed. The sentry at the gate carries a truncheon and ceremonial “for show” rifle.

When the alert level is upgraded armed combat units man the gates.

"If she had said an Irish or a Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian I would -- I know I would -- have had the same effect. I was trying to show honor, to stand up for my dear friend in this terribly medieval fashion,"

There doesn’t seem to be any racial intent here. Just a misled desire to enact revenge on a group rather than an individual.

Imagine the outrage if a men only workspace was opened.

Those connections help women support each other, battling feelings such as "imposter syndrome," where women question whether they have the qualifications to start a company or embark on a particular venture, Burton said.

It’s only prudent to question your capabilities if you are starting a company or undertaking any large scale venture. This not a gender-specific issue.

Posted in: Japan's labor shortage hits 45-year high See in context

The main problem is young people not wanting to work at manual labor jobs. College graduates want to work at large corporations and trade school graduates want to pursue “trendy jobs” in fashion, beauty, etc...

Manual labor is mostly looked down upon as ”Yankii” work even though the pay is sometimes better than salarymen and has more opportunities for promotion.

Posted in: U.S. warns Venezuela's Maduro about intimidation, 'looting' its gold, oil See in context

For heavens sakes, do not meddle in Venezuela’s Socialist implosion! 

Then the other half of the world would blame the US for doing nothing while dictators, criminals organizations, China and Russia move in to suck up the power vacuum. Venezuela will get worse before it gets better, US intervention or not. And although it has been holding together for the most part, mainly due to a fairly developed infrastructure already in place, the world does not need another failed socialist state for the predators to eat up.

Posted in: U.S. warns Venezuela's Maduro about intimidation, 'looting' its gold, oil See in context

Why is Russia, ruled by a far right regime whose leaders, their media outlets and social media trolls constantly assail any political belief they claim is to the 'left' of their form of rightwing totalitarianism, siding with China, an alleged communist (i.e. 'left') led nation, and Maduro, an alleged socialist (i.e. 'left')? 

Actions speak louder than any self-proclaimed name. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is neither a republic, nor is it very democratic. The “Liberal Democratic Party” which people love to hate is more conservative than the conservative sounding “Constitutional Democratic Party” which is more socialist.

Posted in: Trump slams his 'naive' intelligence services; says they should go back to school See in context

Field intelligence is mostly about forming connections and gaining the trust and respect of informants, or if need be, instilling fear into them.

Cool hacking montages, spies in fancy suits and crystal clear satellite photos are the stuff of movies.

Any intelligence agency has finite resources and in the case of a democracy, public opinion is the most valuable resource that controls the flow of material/human resources. The CIA is not an omnipresent eye in the sky with a finger in every pie. To gain any useful information, agents need to have a clear agenda and objective and know exactly what they are looking for and for what purpose.

Old enough to carry a gun, but still seen as a minor (child). Astonishing!

I know many US servicemen who were punished for drinking underage (21). Old enough to kill but not old enough to drink away the stress of killing. Perhaps there should be a unified standard of what age you can drink, handle a gun, drive, vote, serve in the police or military, etc....

Posted in: Ex-policeman pleads guilty to shooting sergeant in 'koban,' citing mental stress See in context

Why is a teenager a police officer and has a gun?

Because he graduated high school at 18 and Police Academy is only 1 year. Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen are as young as 18 and handle weapons that would make a police revolver look like a water pistol. Not all teenagers are as immature as you think.

Posted in: Australian researchers test shark-bite resistant wetsuit See in context

Shark attacks in littoral waters are rare, but in open waters, the probability increases several hundred fold.

Just ask any sailor or the crew of the USS Indianapolis.

This development however, seems like a huge improvement from the current chain mail style shark suits. Wetsuit bouyancy, flexibility and cut proof material would have a lot of practical applications.

didnt a member of SMAP do just this a few years back, got drunk and hit a police officer? 

No he got drunk and stripped down in a park. When the police arrested him he said “what’s wrong with being naked?”

the guy explained that 119 is for fire and ambulance: the police phone number is 112.

It’s 110.

Posted in: Californian student remains in detention 8 months after breaking lamp in Tokyo bar See in context

I’ll admit, when I was younger, about this guy’s age actually, I passed out at a bar once and woke up with 3 cops around me. They just wanted to escort me out and make sure I paid my bill. They even offered me a ride to the next station as the last train had gone.

He more than likely tried to act tough to the cops who just wanted to assess and mediate the situation.

I don’t believe this guy’s “gangs dressed as cops” excuse at all. Sounds like something that would happen in Central America or the Middle East.

Posted in: U.S. base transfer referendum for all Okinawa voters remains unclear See in context

Can you imagine what an embarrassment to the Central Gov. it would be if a majority of the voters in Ginowan City where MCAS Futenma is located voted not to relocate it to Henoko?

That would only imply that the airfield would stay in Futenma indefinitely. Henoko relocation, while not a perfect solution is the most feasible and realistic solution. There is no doubt that residents around Futenma want the airfield relocated, and Nago city agreed over decade ago to host it at Henoko. Wealthy Ginowan land owners, however, who make millions of dollars a year from US land leases are trying tooth and nail to block the relocation. In one of the relocation discussions one of the representatives openly said that he was against the relocation unless the govt can subsidize the commercialization and ensure profits of the returned land. Payed agitators and communist backed 10,000Y baito protestors were thrown in the mix, and things snowballed from there. The actual residents of the Oura Bay Area hate the protesters who block traffic, litter, damage and trespass on private property.
