As the indictments were announced, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the State Department would offer cash rewards for information leading to the arrests or convictions of Maduro and his associates, including rewards of up to $15 million for Maduro and up to $10 million each for four others.
Well, Uncle Sam needs a " few good men " . Any takers ?

The government's ought to listen to these corporations requisitions.......and then...disburse the funds to the main Street. After all, the corps have a fullproof way of getting it from the people. They scr* w the people, flaunt their yearly profits ( " we made gazillion $$ this year !!! " ) . Enter Corona for a couple months and they chuck workers out , then want the taxpayers to bail them out. It should be the other way around.

Confessions are also widely relied on for convictions in lieu of hard evidence, and many who make them later say they were coerced through torture or threats.
Sounds eerily familiar.....wonder where I've seen this practiced ....No...oh !!! *Masaka** * !! It Can't be !!

And why exactly is the IOC pussyfooting around the issue? Fear of creating " disharmony* with the host ? Or It's bread is already buttered ? Or its members have been " onsen-ed" then wined and dined? Just why ?

......: It carries the "Made in China” label.
Hitherto, made in China has always insinuated cheap, substandard or even fake. How I wish this is true of the Corona. ( Covid-19).

Yah think? I give them credit for stepping up and admitting it, and trying to do something to correct the problem! Be nice for Japan to copy this!
And the best part is that... it was immediate !

The Japanese official said Ghosn should stand trial in Japan.
No. No. The Japanese judicial system itself has been tried and found wanting by the majority.

My cat is concerned about filing his tax return as he paw cannot grasp the pen properly.
Will he lose residency?
No worries at all. See , cats are not dog-matic, neither are they burro- cratic but are supremely meow-cratic. Always cat-walking , cat-napping, kit-catting etc .

The doctor has committed an omerta by speaking up against the Japanese collective bureaucrats's position.
@ Samir Basu
While the Japanese government won't make Dr. Iwata Kentaro disappear, they will make sure he will not be heard by pressuring the press to not cover him.
As they have done to me by erasing or altering my comments on Quora , Disqus etc while pretending to be a free- speech society. I too, will begin to speak up publicly against the devil.

Anyway, can anybody explain to me why Japan needs to brief foreign countries of an autonomous and internal affair issue? Regardless of how disastrous it is? I don't understand.
It won't, if it keeps its filth within its precincts.

The demands for Japan's to secede from these occupied territories didn't just come up at the SF conference. They were voiced severally by the allies at Potsdam, Yalta and Cairo ... and Stalin ...USSR rep was right there !

He is the most honest Japanese I ever came across. He takes responsibility for his actions and puts himself at the mercy of the courts to mete out any punishment they think it fit for him. So much unlike the " drunk- can't-remember" types and forgetters-of-convenience.

There's an economic bigger picture hidden somewhere in the back. The Saudis want to keep Iran oil out of the scene. They tried to publicly float the world's biggest company - the Saudi Aramco -in an attempt to diversify their economy. Problem is, they overvalued the company and because they weren't steadfast in book keeping, experts called them out.
The US, with a petrodollar based currency is joined at the hip with Saudi, and they need a few more years to hold Iran down so the Saudis can rectify the Aramco mess before making the company public.....for lots of money. Until then, Iran, with its national - as opposed to multi-corporation - sweet, cheap, easily extractable oil would have to be suppressed - by any means necessary - till the Saudi-US objectives materialize, and heck, any mis-step can cause them to lose it all in a " bringing-democracy-and-freedom-to-the-people-of-Iran " adventure by the US..ala Iraq, ergo Libya etc. The lesser evil is palatable, I'd think.

In a news conference in Beirut lasting more than two hours, Ghosn reasserted his innocence, and accused Nissan and Japanese government officials of plotting his removal.
TThey're akin to the Australian devil, once they clamp on you they never let go till their evil mission is done. Right or wrong - regardless.

Sometimes, we have to try and discern when people are just being gracious. That is, keeping themselves in check not to fight/ rouse unnecessary squabbles.
young people, who are favorably disposed toward Japan, may have been one of the major contributors to the re-election of incumbent.
Really ? They just had to be favorably disposed toward Japan to make that call ? Say Not even Anti- Mainland China ? Whom I'd think is their* *here & now nemesis ?

I think Japan will stop giving ODA, a nice big "Aid Package", to Lebanon.
This ODA thing is highly overrated!! Japan gives ODA to my country too, with LOTS of fanfare, but , they slink away container loads of money. They should know that we know!!

Justice Minister Masako Mori denounced Ghosn's comments as erroneous and credited Japan's extremely low crime rate to a judicial system rooted in “its history and culture.”
History and culture good for Zinjanthropuses.
“only himself to blame” l
Just listen to this hideous conceited notion !!
"They really believe that this system is functioning efficiently and correctly,” he said.
We once believed the sun revolved round the earth. Didn't make it right **just because we believed.**
Cho was worried about a backlash, with release on bail getting tighter.
Because of stung pride ?
Japan’s conviction rate is higher than 99%, a number that critics, including Ghosn, say indicates unfairness.
The world's worst dictators didn't make that percentage.

Today, it's an unusual change of diet from their usual Staples of diffident people from India, Africa and some S. Americans. The ones whom they kick around with no comebacks. And, as usual with all bullies who are suddenly faced with a formidable adversary, they don't know how to react,, after all , they are so used to walkovers.
Ghosn, shine one ray of light and disperse a thousand shadows, none needs its darkness shone more than the decrepit system of Japanese Justice system.

Sadly, they , the Japanese, will shamelessly bribe various government officials of my country, starting from the Ambassadors all the way up for contracts, opinion- shaping and other purposes, without an iota of shame. Some of them are as immoral as they come !
