It is sad how an entire family can be irreparably damaged in an instant due to lack of control during a single, heated moment.

Posted in: 60,000 killed so far in Syria conflict, says U.N. See in context

So many tragic videos are surfacing on the internet showing the horrific war crimes that are being committed against unarmed civilians. So many slaughtered and mutilated children. It breaks my heart to witness this kind of brutality.

Posted in: Japan releases 3 Chinese caught illegally fishing See in context

In most states in the USA if you are caught fishing or hunting illegally your boat, truck, and all equipment can be confiscated if the judge so desires. Wouldn't it be nice if Japan could confiscate/requisition these invading vessels to build up their own surveillance fleet? And leave the name, "Nanjing" on the destroyer while the Red Sun flag is being proudly hoisted above.

@JohnBecker I was waiting for someone to point that out. I saw my error after I clicked "SUBMIT" and do not know how to revise. I should have said, "We are voiceless without representation." I am tired of voting for the "lesser of two evils", as I see it. The Independent party must become a viable third party alternative. As it is right now, it is a joke.

Posted in: Japan considers using U.S. spy drones for marine surveillance See in context

The US is currently producing drones that are capable of dropping a large payload such as a torpedo. This would work nicely against some surveillance ships don't you think? But personally I believe this to be more saber rattling than anything else.

Just don't make the mistake of loosing one to China or North Korea. They will have a media circus. The Iranians are still dancing a jig and bloviating because of that blunder.

Posted in: Obama says fiscal cliff deal makes tax system fairer See in context

What if we could construct tighter guidelines on those who receive welfare and social security? If you are physically capable and mentally fit for work...GET A JOB! There are more jobs out there than most (who have looked) will admit to. "It is just too demeaning to flip burgers and far to laborious and sweaty to roof houses or pick vegetables." Furthermore, we have the distinguished honorable mention as being the most obese nation in the world. Putting people back to work is a two fold strategy that might just help our present entitlement program deficit.

News media (CNN, Yahoo, etc...) violated their own "terms of privacy" in an illegal phishing operation. They disseminated user account information complete with political leanings in the way of call lists. One would receive an online survey and before long you would be getting phone survey by name, although my number is unlisted. There is practically a monopoly of Soros-ian type news sources that spn hand picked stories to further their liberal agenda. Furthermore, they are notorious for editorializing outside the opinion section...well...I'm surprised that the Republicans did as well as they did considering how badly the deck was stacked against them. After all, they had only one national news source that reflected their views (Fox News) and most see them as extremists as well. They lean way too far to the right. And a large chunk of the electorate in the middle (moderates) did not turn out to vote at all (like me). We are voiceless.

Posted in: Abe wants to replace landmark 1995 war apology See in context

I believe this to be a situation of competitive one-upsmanship. I read the news article regarding China's use of decommissioned destroyers (and others) that were to be retrofitted and recommissioned as surveillance vessels. One that encroached on Japanese territorial waters was named "Nanking" for obvious reasons. We will see more and more of these politically motivated jives in the future.

Posted in: Fireproofing said to be inadequate at many nuclear reactors See in context

We really need to push for use of alternative energy sources where ever and whenever can be implemented. An integration of multiple power generating technologies (like solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, etc...) should be feeding the grid.

Posted in: Hollywood tops Chinese film market in 2012 See in context

Just how bad are Chinese domestic films?! Hollywood's box office superiority is on the decline and falling fast for many reasons. I predict that this competitive edge will be short lived. Watch out for Bollywood and others who are gaining strength in the industry.

Posted in: 8 U.S. sailors sue Japanese gov't, TEPCO for lying about radiation See in context

This is the kind of lawsuit that makes the world believe that Americans (in general) are moneygrubbing and sue happy. I completely agree with that assessment.

Posted in: 3 Chinese ships seen in disputed waters See in context

The Chinese government is acting like a small school of piranha. History tells us that they will take little bites and then run back to safety when pursued. They will repeat this maneuver over and over again until the school of piranha (decommissioned military vessels) grows too large to repel. Before you know it, they will be entrenched in your backyard and there will be nothing you can do about it. I don't like it but that seems to be where this is heading.
