Caricaturing terrorist or a religion is an attack in a secular country and so what the Kalanishkov attack was a normal response ? I am really astonished by the comments I can read here.

Posted in: Japan Atomic Power eyes split to focus on decommissioning See in context

Japan Atomic Power is the only company in the country that operates both boiling-water and pressurized-water reactors, so it plans to realign human and technical resources according to reactor type.

Monopolies, monopolies hold by companies in monopoly's position themselves, so much of achievement here.....

When will Japan change those pedestrian crossing crossed by cars coming from the other side of the streets because they have the right to turn ? Most of the time, it is safer to cross when you should not simply because at least you know that cars are expecting to come....they should really check the most dangerous location and change it to a 3 phases signals when the 3rd phases is a stop to all cars (from all direction) for a safe crossing by pedestrian.

Of course there are limits, this is "hate speech" but "secularism" is not.

Burning Bush

You obviously forgot to mention the "notice" from Charb about that famous drawing where the minister is drawn as a female monkey, at first there is the FRONT NATIONAL logo on the picture, then Charb explained "" By associating the name of Mrs Taubira and the words " banana "and" monkey "the racist far right FRONT NATIONAL hope to pass a racist slogan, a colonialist insult to a popular joke. " So this is all the opposite to that you think.

Posted in: Why is Japan such an unpopular tourist destination? See in context

Japan has no real sense of architecture within the city, bad isolation in winter, electric pole everywhere , no place to walk and relax, garbage on the streets, everything looks old and used, only it is relatively safe but with local not welcoming foreigners, crowd in every transportation, a govt preaching that foreigners have no human rights, why do you want people to come here exactly ? to eat sushi ? LOL

Posted in: Latest Charlie Hebdo cover continues to upset Muslim world See in context

There is no religion book stating "take a kalashnikov and kill".... those doing that under the name of a god are not doing good for their religion and are just plain murderers manipulated by extremist with very down on earth motivation.

Posted in: Uniqlo to step up controls on China suppliers See in context

“The root cause of the problem is low-cost competition worldwide,” said Ito. “Uniqlo is a champion of this market, especially in the garment industry. But many other companies might have this problem.”

The problem is rather companies like those which are killing the high quality competitors, there is nothing to be proud to be champion of the cheap labour market.

So bosses know if you are chatting on the outside. Spying on your workers is part of this gig.

Probably yes if you subscribe to the "denouncement cloud service". I am glad I have personally stopped using that network which was always short to deliver what I was expecting and brought me only trouble and deception.

Posted in: S Korea extends travel ban on Japanese journalist on trial for defaming Park See in context

This is similar to "Charie Case" in France,

No ! This journalist is charged with criminal libel punishable by up to seven years’ jail in SKorea and since his case is currently in progress, probably this ban is to avoid him to vanish in Japan and escape the trial, you cannot compare this to Charlie Hebdo, let's be serious.

Posted in: France declares war on terrorism after attacks See in context

For me, I understand that France will put more resources on tracking those peoples and the ones brainwashing them like criminals on the territory which is good. As soon as somebody is taking weapon to kill they are just criminals and murderers. France is a state of law and can move closer on the location where it starts and I hope for Muslim all around the world to start official "excommunication" session of all those terrorist who claim to kill under the name of their god.
