Actually no, from the latest polls only 25% of the population support them. A majority wants those protests to stop.

How do you know if what's said is true or not? You're just saying hai hai to whatever is thrown at you to read or see.. There's perhaps two sides to the story!? Usually is.. Again media is just companies for profit not charity..

Actually this has been pretty well documented by Renault during their recent internal audit.

Let me resume, the US signs a deal with other participants in 2015, the US then get out of the deal, then tell the other parties there will be repercussions if everybody else keep its part of the deal going ? Did I miss something ?

Andrew CrispToday 12:58 pm JST

These medical Universities had an unfair entrance policy because they were looking at the greater good, that is after graduating female doctors left to have babies some come back others don't, changing this policy could come back to be a problem for Japan in the future.

Foreigners named Andrew tend to have more arrest than foreigners named George, let's cut the visa approval rate to Andrews to 10%.

You want to do business in the US, to deal in USD then yo go by the USA's rules

You think this is about "doing business in the US"? This is about US vs China, Super Heavyweight World Title bout. Collateral damage should be expecte

The real motivation is not relevant. Don't deal in USD you won't have issues, deal in EUR with Iran !

BigYenToday 09:03 am JST

Why should China or Chinese companies be legally bound by what the US decides is legal or not?

You want to do business in the US, to deal in USD then yo go by the USA's rules (isn't it the same in China ?). Free to them to use Chinese entities, banks and currencies to deal with Iran.

CrazyJoeToday 09:09 am JST

I am very happy to hear this. I am convinced the original vote was manipulated by Putin in order to drive a wedge into Europe, the same way he manipulated the U.S. presidential election.

I am seriously thinking that there is manipulation coming from more than Russia in breaking the EU, US is also a good player. I keep repeating it but seeing what Bannon is doing in the light these days is just crazy, this guy should be kicked out somehow.

I hope my country, Australia, grants this young woman - who at 18 years old would be considered an independent adult in Australia, with all the freedoms that brings - asylum and eventual citizenship.

Doesn't seems very well engaged as Australia cancelled her visa ...

What will he bring to the position ? What's his experience on the subject, I am really confused ...

The AvengerToday 05:16 pm JST

Good for the Japanese! I'm sick of us in the west imposing our attitudes on others. As deer are considered messengers to the gods in Shinto, I would suggest Japan insist on their right to hunt whales until the rest of the world agrees to outlaw deer hunting.

You know that whales are in international waters right ? That make a huge difference.

Posted in: Paris assesses injuries, damage after worst riot in decade See in context

I don't see how that is really solvable. There are plenty of other wonderful places in France in which to live. Its a beautiful country.

Sadly most of the job market is highly centralized, except retired people not that many people can have the opportunity to live in those "wonderful places"

Posted in: Paris assesses injuries, damage after worst riot in decade See in context

Those rioters are not originals "gilets jaunes", they're just joining hoping to cause as much violence as possible. I start to wonder if those groups are not externally fueled (US, Russia ?) in an effort to help taking down the EU.

Matt HartwellToday 11:16 am JST

@Matt Hartwell those numbers don't mean much when Russia could just turn off the gas pipe

They put themselves in that situation by not developing alternatives. Dumb and short sighted.

They have been trying for a while, but strangely enough all the pipes, agreement projects get thrown out or delayed by wars, foreign invasions, etc.
