Out of curiousity, why did the US chose Vietnam as the venue and not Singapore again?

Because it's a hassle to host these talks. You canimagine the security measures and the cost. It's a burden on the locals as well. I for one am glad since I'm in Singapore right now.

Why would anyone give up thier ace so early? Insisting on it would only derail the talks. This is a good move.

Marcelito, 72 percent of half the population were against the relocation. Which means 28 percent of half the population were in favor or did not care. And what about the 48 percent who didn't even bother to show up. How passionate do you think they are about opposing the move. It's not that complicated.

So out of 52 percent of the population, 30 were in favor or did not care and the rest couldn't be bothered to vote. Hardly overwhelming support. And since when is one prefecture voting on an issue that affects the entire country democracy. Okinawa needs to stop thinking like it's it's own country.

Posted in: Okinawa holds referendum on controversial U.S. base move See in context

It is time the Japanese people used "people power" and voted in a government with enough spine to tell the US to stop making Japan a target and remove all bases off its shores.

They can, they know they can and yet they won't. That should tell you something.

How will they ensure kids or vulnerable adults are not seated next to men?

Because men are all sexual predators. This is blatant sexisim.

Chippstar is right. The fight for change has to come from within. And outside country imposing it's will for the betterment of the people there? What does that remind you of? Colonialism maybe? It is the responsibility of the Venezuelan people to build a prosperous society for themselves. Any attempt at outside interference will only be resented. Just look at Africa.

They should have another referendum asking if they want Ginowan to remain open and those 9000 marines to stay on the island. Okinawa is acting like this is a defeat for them when if fact, it is a victory. I support Okinawa and want to see a reduced burden, that's why I support this deal.

Posted in: Does U.S. President Donald Trump deserve the Nobel Peace Prize? See in context

Obama got the prize for giving speeches. Certainly Trumps actions on North Korea alone deserve it. Talks which stopped the missle launches over Japan and opened dialong between the two countries. Not to mention pulling troops out of Syria and wanting to foster better relations with Russia. Something the dems have made impossible. Anyone who can get over thier bias for a second can appreciate this agrument.

Posted in: Couple indicted over death of granddaughter bitten by their dog See in context

The dog should know better to distinguish between child play and life-threatening attack. If it cannot, it should never be allowed to be near children, unleashed.

A dog is a dog. How can it be responsible for not knowing something? That's like saying the kid should have known not to go near the dog. Sometimes kids really hurt these animals, horseplay or not. They have not developed empathy for animals and see them as little more than toys to be abused for their amusement.

That's rather odd behavior for a golden retriever. They are usually mild mannered and great family dogs. I bet some details are missing here.

Posted in: 67% plan to vote against U.S. air base transfer within Okinawa: poll See in context

You can't compare crime rates between U.S. bases and Okinawan society at large. If you want to compare U.S. bases with something else in regard to this problem, that something must be SDF bases or Japan’s law enforcement body. Or if you want to stick with Okinawan society, then a counterpart in the U.S. for comparison must be New York or Los Angeles.

I don't understand. Why can't we compare the US bases with the local crime rate?

Without having seen the anime, I can say the premise should work well in a live action and western setting. I'm pretty there was already a similar comedy movie done.

Posted in: Man gets 15 years in prison for strangling woman, dumping body in lake See in context

Initially, Iida was arrested on a charge of corpse abandonment after admitting to disposing of the body in the lake. However, he was released from custody because police were unable to find the body despite his statement.

So he confessed but they let him go anyway? So much for confession being the king of evidence. I guess that's only when they want it to be.

People should not be feeding wild animals. The deer population should be kept in check through culling and hunting if there are no natural predators. Deer are prey animals. They breed fast and can overrun the area if not kept in check.

Nissan is not just one person. It's a corporate entity. Nissan as a whole is responsible and should pay heavy fines in the billions range for any gross negligence. Ghosn has other shareholders he must answer to as well.
