Japanese news reported that the conversation lasted only 20 minutes. I can get my butt chewed out by my wife for 20 minutes, and put in nary a word. I can bet you all the LDP's kickbacks there was nothing substantial from Kishida's side.

You can get drunk as a skunk, grope and then plead innocent because you were inebriated and get off light, but can get thrown in the slammer if you smoke at home. The government doesn't know how to tax this so it will probably be illegal until they find a way to levy taxes on this but alas, cultivation is already widely known so they are in a bit of a conundrum. But back to the story, yes, good that it's finally approved for medicinal use.

Tests are only tests, how those skills are applied in the real world is the main issue. Thinking outside of the box, thinking on the move and critical thinking should also be emphasized in Japan instead of only focusing on test results.

If the creation of energy is similar to the sun, shouldn't humans be sending more probes like the Parker Solar Probe to gather more data rather than going to space to create space tourism? We are a dumb species.

And his "leadership" is to host the first summit of ASEAN nations in reducing carbon emissions. Everyone can fly in, stay at expensive hotels, use chauffeured cars, enjoy fine wine and food all just to make a press statement and stand for a group photo. Not to mention all the press in tow riding around following these clowns. Someone please calculate the amount of GHG this little initiative is going to cost.

Why visit Israel if he's interested in peace and securing oil? He should be visiting Qatar to lend support.

Even if wages increase, I seriously doubt it will increase consumer spending or confidence. The population has seen firsthand how inept the government can be during a crisis as clearly demonstrated during the pandemic. People are going to save and refrain from spending, as there are just too many problems that Kishida and the LDP aren't willing or equipped to handle.

Japan acting like Chicken Little with all their sirens and alerts. Just what exactly are we supposed to do, there aren't any shelters or subways on Okinawa. Oh, maybe we can all run to Naha City Hall's underground parking garage. One thing for sure, NK's success rate is better than JAXA.

And as always, whenever there is an inconvenient incident at home, he'll traipse off to a foreign destination to try and heal his image as a "leader." The last time was Philippines and Malaysia, this time will be APEC.

Send Kamikawa and Kishida to "take the lead' in the Mideast. That's what they were spewing out of their mouths yesterday....

Really? Two state solution train left the station decades ago. How about starting with the immediate cessation of all hostilities and the withdrawal of all IDF from Gaza, turn on all electricity, water and allow free flow of aid? Japan is really going to open its doors to Palestinian refugees or just push other countries to do it? This Kishida administration and Kamikawa are a clown show.

She said, "not a direct party to the conflict and does not fully grasp its specific situations. We cannot make a definitive legal assessment" of the Israeli attacks." Really? She used, "we," which implies she's speaking on behalf of Kishida and this simply implies that they are bereft of both moral and intellectual integrity, leaving them in a state of ethical and cognitive emptiness. Firstly with all the history available in this day and age, if they can't formulate their own position, they don't belong on the stage. Secondly, you don't need a legal assessment, what about basing your arguments based on humanitarian grounds? Absolutely no moral or intellectual capacity to be standing on the stage.

Yes, protect your fellow citizens by giving them the one finger salute. Sounds like a lack of discipline to me, sexual assault, sexual harassment, immature behavior, security leaks, all the more visible in a country as small as Japan. Expensive war toys isn't going to protect Japan, it's the men and women in the military, maybe Kishida should think about this.

Kamikawa said, "You have our utmost support." She was singing a different tune when she was in the Mideast last week talking to Arab leaders. Spineless. Israel themselves said that they don't want a ceasefire, so why does this article only say that Hamas doesn't want a ceasefire. There should be more coverage of the tens of thousands of Jews all over the world who are protesting against this massacre.

Japan is building up defenses in Okinawa and the surrounding outer islands because they are concerned that it is a high risk area and yet there aren't any drills like this over here. This drill was only for the Tokyo people to put fear into them so that they'll accept Kishida's defense bill. Complete photo op and propaganda ploy.

Blinken is trying to play the "good cop" to balance the "bad cop" Israel. Two sides of the same coin. W pushed for the election back in 2006 I believe, and sure enough Hamas won in an election in which even Jimmy Carter as an observer declared was fair and legitimate. Mideast experts knew that elections were premature but W and Condi pushed and the pact with the devil was signed to counter Fatah and the Palestinian Authority. The madness we are witnessing did not start on Oct 7, let's be very clear about that. Short sighted, racist policies, even back to the Balfour declaration contributed to this and if actions are taken only as revenge killings this problem will never be solved.
