Posted in: New questions rise after Iran says it downed Ukrainian plane See in context

All these innocent people would be alive if not for Trump's obsession with everything Obama/Impeachment scare. There are human consequences to his childish behavior. We all acknowledge Iran has been a bad actor. Why rush a confrontation now?

Posted in: France, others line up to probe plane crash in Iran blamed on missile See in context

I hear people say its too early to point fingers. But why not??? Was this tension that let to an Iranian military personnel firing this missile necessary? Yes, a missile brought it down. Probably by mistake. Whole true cause being that Trump is jealous of the black man Obama and so wanna destroy everything that has his name on it. This is no more funny. There is human cost to it. Those of you still enabling this should be ashamed of the blood of the innocent civilians on your hands.

I can't get the ''SAVED Nissan'' crap enough. Guys do some research before repeating that. I have done numerous paper works on this topic. They needed a gaijin to do the firing. Firing people you've never met before is something anybody could have done. Nissan has gone through this near bankruptcy point many times in the future. Talk o somw historians and former nissan insiders.

Now let the thump downs flow for this my post.

I have been saying all along, the the GM, Ford etc come and open the car showroooms here. There is no impediments in doing so. The Germans are doing it. They are also free to sell their cars here. And lets see how they compete. This bullying of Japan must stop. Its time Japan gets some politicians who are bold enough to say the truth

Posted in: Japan, U.S. seek to sign 'very big' trade deal in September See in context

Why cant politicians be straightforward? Abe, just tell Trump no one is stopping GM, Ford etc from selling their cars in Japan. Look at the Germans. Just open ur damn shops here. And remember to do as others do. Benz will come pick my car from home for shaken. Toyota will leave a temporal replacement car. Mazda sends seasonal greetings like small towels.

Buzzyboy is right to call them fools. They should have at least covered their track since he was the one brought in to cut cost and fire people.

I fly intentionally almost every week for work and do i can afford this 1,000 but its so painful to have to pay. We are already over taxed. A new cow for the politicians and big businessed to milk.

Residents shouldn't pay.

I'm not in the tourism business and if anything, those tourism related entities should foot that bill

And if its not in my ticket fee already, i wont pay

Posted in: Nissan CEO tells employees he intends to review alliance with Renault See in context

Why do you people wanna give him a pass for breaking the law?

Some of u saying he wasnt personally responsible for his salary and taxes.

The guy saw Nissan as his personal property to further his personal ambitions.

Firing people u have never met( in this case his cost cutting), is easy.

So i refuse to give him all the praises.

And why should Nissan provide more than 50% of Renaults revenue?

Its not that J govt couldnt have saved Nissan.

Lets stop playing the gaijin card.

Read some Nissan history. The guy should have lived by the same standards he demanded of others.

Posted in: Nissan Chairman Ghosn arrested over financial law violation See in context

We say its him who rescued Nissan. In my university, we studied deeply. Talked to lots of insiders and those restructured. The public doesn't have the whole pic. He deserve some but not all the credit. The Japanese needed an outsider face to do all the firings and restructuring. Gaijin was the perfect executioner

Posted in: SoftBank CEO Son says Saudi fund to continue despite Khashoggi murder See in context

The most insulting thing is that, he says its money from the Saudi populace. Its not. Its from the corrupt royal family.

Which common Saudi citizen know, let alone have a say about where the wealth is hidden?

Good that i stopped using anything softbank. Unfortunately this move by Son san will quitely die out in the japanese media and japanese mind. Remember they have stakes in yahoo japan.

In more enlightened societies, there would be boycotts. But here, everyone is minding their own business. After all, the family member didn't die.

The saying is true; dignity doesn't pay bills. He got to be soul-less for him to be super rich.

Tax payers doesn't need to foot expenses of life-termers. Here in japan, they actually do work and that work can support their livelihood for the rest of their lives. Better than death penalty

I posted the below in an earlier thread. I think it answers Bass here too

The plan isn't to shift media attention from Omarosa.

Its a calculated plan to prevent potential witnesses from accessing classified info when they are called to help investigators.

That's the whole story.

But the side effect is worse. These people on the enemy list have over 200 years of combined intelligence service. One wonders why sidelined Dan Coats doesn't resign in protest. They are sabotaging his ability to properly do his work.

Posted in: Japan determined to settle abduction issue by talks with Kim See in context

My post may sound cold but that is the truth.

J politicians should be bold to their constituents and say the obvious. The abductees arent coming home(alive). TIME TO MOVE ON.

Our tax yen shouldn't be going to Trump and co simplying for the hope of raising this issue in a meeting. The whole country ia being held hostage now.
