hey but blair with his prep school accent, can convert most anglophiles to his view, even though neither he nor they may have a clue what he might be talking about. talk of style over substance!

protesting sometimes, not always, is self-righteous crap...how about protesting against protesting? would that be fine? or what is good for the goose is good for the gander too? touche?

nothing wrong with protesting i guess...but then again, thousands of folks in town-hall meetings in the US protesting medicare reforms that would actually benefit them...there are protests and there are protests...not as if the world would fall apart if the whales disappeared...and seriously from the world's point of view, does it really matter if the world falls apart? the "world" will just be fine, trust you me...albeit without petty humans screaming and scapegoating each other...to defend this or that animal or human is the height of anthropocentric selfishness...let it rip folks and see where it goes...

i don't see the need for general "anti-japanese" sentiments being expressed here. that's simply because i naively believe that stereotypes do more harm than good, but heck, that's just me!

sad it is for the father, the child, and yes even the mother. however, signing some vague hague convention etc. will not resolve this issue. after all the US too has signed many international conventions even though it usually does what it likes, just like many other countries. rather than shouting and screaming in silly, narrow nationalist terms, using stereotypes, be it for the japanese or the americans, it's best to resolve such issues at the level of commonsense...ie. don't make this a diplomatic row...enough blame to go around!
