claiming the crime was committed under the influence of alcohol causing a "different personality to come to the fore."

Lol! This made me laugh out loud. They know very well they have no chance with this defense.

Why would Japan increase investment in China after the senaku island fiasco a few years back? They should be running for the hills.

Taylor Swift, please stay out of politics. Don't alienate your fans by taking part in pointless political rhetoric. The last thing I want to hear when going to a concert is someone telling me who to vote for. We deserve better.

He peels his grapes. He should be arrested for that alone. 1000yen worth of damages? Gee I wonder how he's gonna pay that. Hope he's got money saved.

Honestly, the sooner this base move is done, the better. People have other things to worry about.

Posted in: Okinawans vote for governor, with U.S. base in focus See in context

What new base? It is a base extension at Camp Schwab, not a new base as the base is already there. You do not call Naha airport the new airport because the are adding a runway.

It's called distorting the facts and fake news. The misleading of the public is all too common nowadays.

Posted in: Trump: Heads of state 'were laughing with me,' not at me See in context

I watched the speech and it was clear they took what he said as a joke and acted accordingly. He mentioned that his administration was the most productive one in the history of the nation. Normally that kind of hyperbole is taken as a joke. When Trump says things like that, he's usually serious.

Posted in: World Rugby advises teams to cover up tattoos at 2019 World Cup in Japan See in context

I'll never understand this linking of all tattoos to yakuza. The yaks have very distinct tattoo styles that you would never find on a non yak. A foreigner would probably get beat up walking around with yakuza tats. Not all tattoos are the same.

Posted in: Operation Tsukiji: Tokyo battles rats as iconic market prepares to shut See in context

Before the market is torn down, they will erect an impregnable three-meter steel wall around the site and slowly move in through the perimeter to "corner and catch" the rodents, said the operation's commander, who asked not to be named.

I wouldwouldn't want to be named either. He'd never hear the end of it.

The US needs to invest more in it's infrastructure and less into wars overseas. Calapsing bridges, exploding pipelines, potholes big enough to flip your car over and sink holes big enough to swallow entire vehicles. The country is a death trap.

There is always going to be a trade deficit. Other countries just don't have the buying power of the US.

Posted in: Frank Underwood dead in final season of 'House of Cards' See in context

The entire show was a buildup to his eventual retribution. Hence the name, house of cards. It was supposed to hit him like hurricane, now it's just a fart in the wind.

Posted in: Japan to set up immigration agency to cope with influx of foreigners See in context

I am being cautious about this, it troubles me. I still think Robots, automated technology (driverless car), and Artificial Intelligence are the way of the future for "labor shortages" in Japan, for farms, hospitals and factories. Also, women and seniors are being encouraged to enter the workforce, so there may be no need to import guest workers.

AI is not yet ready for widespread use in the field. Women are already working have to choose between work and having children. Seniors are well...old. Making people work till they drop is not a solution.

You're own fault America. I have no pity for you anymore with your STUPID gun laws... 100% preventable.

Please stop with the anti gun rhetoric. There is a larger problem and taking guns away is only a band aid. Not that that would be possible anyway.

Posted in: Soldier's nephew in Japan receives second WWII souvenir flag See in context

73 years too late. Why did the US soldiers take personal items of killed Japanese soldier?

Because he was dead. The soldier probably didn't think anyone would miss the flag. War trophies are a common thing in war time and were probably collected by all sides.

Like many others, she realized she had been duped as soon as she landed. The port was shabby, everyone was terribly thin, and children wore rags.

"You cannot express your opinion at all," she said, adding that everyone lived in fear, even of getting killed for saying the wrong thing. "You can't get out of there."

That's communism in a nutshell.
