Whatever the reasons and who's calling who a liar. Bolton is out and it's good. He was definitely pushing for war with his Iran obsession and vendetta.

Protesting doesn't equal violence Akie. It's funny how you keep associate both.

However, it's not just foreigners getting scammed. My Mrs has been paying into this 'slush fund' for many years. She received a statement from them the other day. She has paid a little over 60 grand (¥60 million) into this scam. However, her actual entitlement is a little over 13 grand (¥1.3 million). That is less then 20% of the money she has "uhum" invested. More than 80% of her retirement fund has disappeared into the pension coffer!

I think it's all because of the misunderstanding of the Japanese pension system. Unlike most of the US (maybe Australia also ?) systems which are based on capitalization, in the Japanese pension system the working population pays directly for the retired population. You don't capitalize for yourself, you pay for your parents.

I throw bricks and explosives at the police. I am not a rioter. I demand you to call us protestors.

Who is going to take you seriously?

That's like 30 people on a couple of millions.

100% zero tolerance, as simple as that. Any patience toward violence means insensitivity toward peace.

Why are you talking about violence ? The fired crews were protesting, peacefully.

I don't understand why you keep using this word. Nor China nor Hong Kong are democratic.

Eppee: " What you're reading on Chinese propaganda websites may not show the exact reality."

But you accept all you read in Western media because it fits in with your narrative

As a matter of fact I actually don't need to read any media from any side to know what's going on in HK ....

These RIOTERS are being egged on by the West and I wonder how the rioters have the money to buy gas masks when they don't work because they are rioting daily. Who is financing these rioters?

What you're reading on Chinese propaganda websites may not show the exact reality.

Just for you information, not only students protests:

Akie, first they are asking for universal suffrage. Not sure why you deflect for this play on "majority". After if it's going to be a representative democracy or anything else is not yet discussed.

M3M3M3Today 11:13 am JST

Hong Kong was assured political autonomy until 2047, but the violence and disruption gives China a legitimate legal excuse to move in at 20:47 later tonight.

If you followed that's also actually one of the issues, their autonomy has been slowly eroded since, China is not keeping its words on the agreement.

Posted in: Hong Kong leader urges calm as protest tensions rise See in context

Chan Tong-kai, the man who murdered his girlfriend during a vacation in Taiwan last month, may get away with murder as he is only charged with theft and handling stolen goods.

...

This was why the extradition bill was proposed. It simply means that this murderer can be brought to justice by being extradited for his crimes. Seems fair enough.

that's not entirely correct, Taiwan has officially refused the murderer if it was at the price of the extradition bill. In addition a one time extradition agreement could have been found if needed.

I'm not against the protest, just wondering how another Government would react?

Open discussion channels with the protesters. Listen to them, talk to them.

Yes, I wonder too why the airport decided to close yesterday.

I would guess that ensuring the security of travelers would have become impossible in those conditions, better close it than facing security issues in an international airport.

Wrong. The U.S. has, however, been the number one driving economic force for decades.

US has been the number one economic terrorist for the past 15 years, despite what people think it really exploded against Europe under Obama. They have been buying European companies with the help of their crooked judicial system through blackmailing, false imprisonment, fines, etc. And ... Europe has been dumb enough to let the US do and let those companies down. Just look at the recent Alstom story, a real shame. Anybody who tries to follow what's going on behind the scene is really laughing at Pompeo right now.

TheLongTermerToday 01:45 pm JST

what I dont understand is why people dont carry, and they become the 1st responder., then rush the shooter. FBI studies have shown this to be more effective than running. If you run from a predator in nature, it will chase you by instinct. An ankle holster with a snub nose .38, or whatever your choice of weapon, a little drop and roll, up and shoot action, and take out the shooter. It is what it is now; you dont need to go to Afghan to see combat. Would you take a pocket knife to combat? Id rather be prepared, and its your right.

Because maybe real life is not like Hollywood movies ?
