Posted in: Iran's Rouhani warns Trump about 'mother of all wars' See in context

Iran wouldn't even make the short list in regards to countries that had the power to wager a viable war against the U.S.

Iran has pretty much been left alone to develop nuclear weapons at will and when someone steps up the game (in this case President Trump) to try and stop it people say nasty stuff about him, I can assure you that Iran is one of the last countries that the world wants to have nukes.

Posted in: What to do if there is a killer on your train See in context

This article was tid bits of limited information, most people would want to be quiet and hide as best you can and not draw any attention to yourself but if the attacker notices you and starts your direction the best (and possibly only) chance you have is to fight with whatever weapon you have available, it may end up being your feet or fists but to do nothing at that point is to accept your fate.

Hopefully others would join in and the assailant over powered, there are numerous instances in which that has happened or even a single passenger has been able to subdue a passenger.

A fire extinguisher can also be very useful if the pin is pulled and the contents discharged into the face.

In the U.S nobody carries a gun onboard a flight (exception: air marshal's) but lord pity the fool that stands up and tries to hijack the flight with a knife in this day and age.

Posted in: Trump takes aim at Canada as global trade war looms See in context

There sure is a lot of talk and people ridiculing Trump's trade tariffs, and also a bunch of threats but it will be interesting to actually see how this whole thing plays out in the end, I don't think it will end up badly for the U.S despite all the nonsense.

The U.S also has submarines (boomers and fast attack) over there but that is rarely reported on and they are far more effective weaponry.

Posted in: Game arcade manager reveals Y2 million robbery was lie See in context

So this arcade manager was unaware that surveillance cameras were recording events on premises or just too stupid to consider it.

Posted in: U.S. Marine gets 4 years for fatal drunk driving crash in Okinawa See in context

While 4 years + restitution/fine appears to be a light sentence it is in-line with what a Japanese citizen would receive for committing the same offense and more than what an American court would dish out.

Posted in: Vietnamese trainee in Japan sent home after asking for paid leave See in context

The whole foreign trainee program is nothing but legalized slave labor and the poor participants are treated accordingly. The demands are simple; "Shut up and work" and so long as they adhere to this rule they are golden, but step out of line ever so slightly and you're on your way back to the motherland without recourse and don't bother complaining to the Japanese authorities.

"Hope they didn't drop anything."

Unbelievable comment and one of the last things on earth that anyone on the ground would have to worry about is one of our airmen tossing something out of an aircraft for kicks.

Posted in: Guide dog owners face discrimination 2 years after ban on such practices See in context

Most every other first world country has adopted laws that prohibit any descrimination against a person with a person with a guide dog, the dog goes where the person does end of story and it hasn't been much of a problem or put out for anyone.

I'm not talking about fake service animals or emotional support animals in which these people are just looking for attention that they can't get otherwise.

Posted in: Motorcyclist referred to prosecutors over record speeding of 239 kph See in context

It will be interesting to see what the punishment is and I am curious if the judge will take into consideration that these bikes are going about 5% slowerthan what is displayed on the speedometer or if that makes any difference, 279kph is roughly that bikes top speed under ideal conditions.

Posted in: Door falls from ASDF helicopter onto island; no injuries reported See in context

Interesting that this one fell from an ASDF helicopter and not nearly such a big deal is made, but still the comments of concern that someone is going to be killed by falling parts from aircraft which is such a remote possibility that there can't even be odds placed on this occurring.

A person is a million times more likely to be killed by a house cat attack.

Posted in: As the F-35A is aircraft loaded with sensitive features, it is difficult to verify whether the cost is reasonable. It is true that we tend to accept the U.S. asking price. See in context

Regardless of what Japan pays for the new F-35 fighter jets their total military expenditure still won't exceed 1% GDP which remains one of the lowest military budgets of any country on the planet.

Posted in: Japan suspects yet another N Korean sanctions breach at sea See in context

I feel horrible for the NK people but the fact of the matter is that their leader is a lunatic and a serious threat, the sanctions need to be in place and enforced until Rocket Man starts feeling the effects. Until then any ship that is caught illegally transferring goods should be sunk.

Posted in: Man walks into ‘koban,' says he killed mother; brother also found dead See in context

I imagine that if his brother truly died on his own and he was left to deal with not only his brothers death but also his aging mothers disability alone that would put a tremendous amount of stress on this man, not to make excuses or justify but to make some sense of it. Very sad but also common in Japan.

Posted in: Fishermen seek compensation over U.S. fighter jet fuel tank incident See in context

It always amazes me how such small events (in the scheme of things) get so blown out of proportion in Japan, the disdain for America shines through in the out of whack reporting. In reality these sort of incidents occur through out the world within every military and the JSDF is not immune to their fair share of incidents and accidents either, it only appears that the U.S military suffers more because of the exaggerated coverage every tiny thing receives when it occurs anywhere near Japan.

Posted in: Murdered Okinawa woman's family to seek compensation from U.S. gov't See in context

I wish that Japan would order the U.S military out, it would save us Billions of dollars and we wouldn't have to worry about our service members being killed protecting Japanese that don't want us there, and have fun spending more than 1% of your GDP (what Japan spends now) building up your own SDF/military so it can protect the country.

And see how well things worked out for the Philippines that has been trying to get the U.S military to come back for the past couple of years because of rising fear of China which is also a factor for Japan but also throw in increased tensions with North Korea for good measure.

I can certainly understand Japan's reluctance to admit any immigrants for any reason. If you look at other parts of the world that take them in by the tens of thousands it is very apparent all the problems they create.

Posted in: N Korea using Olympics to drive wedge between U.S., Japan, S Korea See in context

It appears by the comments that North's efforts are having an impact, how easily some people can be misled and influenced. Don't forget to keep the big picture in sight, the North is a a menace to world peace and is led by a dictator who cares nothing about his people are any other, he has ulterior motives and is not extending a true olive branch to the South or any other country, don't be fooled.

Posted in: Head of Japan-based U.S. Marines Osprey squadron sacked See in context

This is common practice to relieve the commanding officer of a squadron after a couple of accidents regardless of the circumstances which are still under under investigation, it is likely that the CO will be re-assigned and forced out in this case, it serves to reassure the locals that people are being held accountable for mishaps.

The Japanese on the island aren;t happy with the Osprey's being deployed there...come to think of it they are happy with the Sea Stallions, the Huey's, the Harriers, the F-35's, the F-18's the C-130's, the Sea Cobras...I'm not sure anything would make them happy short of all the Americans leaving.

Posted in: Man gets 7 years for fatal abuse of 2-month-old daughter See in context

A seven year sentence seems lenient but in similar cases in the U.S the parent is often times given a lesser sentence, sometimes out in only a few months or even just probation, far too little punishment for such a despicable crime in my book.

It's just another subject (albeit a long reach) for the locals to complain about in regards to the U.S military, if it weren't for helicopter accidents to gripe about it would be the noise or the service members that go off-base, they will complain about anything and everything so long as the U.S bases remain.

Kids of this age traveling alone by bus and train are as common a sight in Japan as there is and most people still keep an eye out for them, that is what makes this story newsworthy. Undoubtedly the bus company rushed this little guy to where he needed to be when he was discovered.
