Now Japan can deport all undesirable Iranian "refugees".
Actually, not going to happen. Many of them have been in Japan since the late 70s/ early 80s when the hardline islamist Ayatollah took over. Lots of Iranian restaurants in Japan. Mostly very good people, and many have become Japanese.

The comments accusing China of this and that are just hilarious. The US and Europe have done much worse things in their histories, yet that doesn't seem to bother anyone.
The 50-yuan army are out in force.
The US and Europe did bad things in history, but so did the Mongolian Empire, the Romans, etc etc .
We are talking RIGHT HERE AND NOW with Communist China - the Genocide they are perpetrating on millions of innocent Muslims is the worst genocide since Nazi Germany. Simple as that.
Communist China is the biggest threat to humanity, and the worst enemy known to freedom and democracy.

The news just announced that they got the guy and the girl is unharmed (無事). I hope she’s mentally okay. What a horrible 24 hours she must’ve had.
Great news. Would be even better if it stated that the perpetrator had received a lead injection between his eyes.
I hope the poor girl is OK.

What happened to tranquilizer guns? Does Sapporo not have a zoo that carries these things?
This is not Hollywood, unfortunately. There was a need to bring this beast down within minutes, before people were slaughtered, and not wait around for tranquilizer guns.

Extremely scary news. I am shocked the SDF soldiers did not turn their service weapons on the beast as it rampaged through the base and Sapporo City, potentially killing many.
Regrettable the bear is deceased, but it could have been so much more tragic.
The Japan Bear and Forest Society has warned that forest-dwelling bears are being spotted in greater numbers in areas inhabited by humans as they search for food.

Communist China wants to take over the entire western Pacific region, and bully every neighbor in the process. They cannot be trusted; they cheat when it comes to trade; threaten war daily against neighbors; steal territory; commit genocide on a scale not seen since the Nazis; have turned peaceful, freedom loving Hong Kong into a dangerous terror state... the list of outrages is endless.
Anyone who disagrees is a collaborator with Communist China. Simple as that.

Good for Naomi-chan.
If the Olympics goes ahead, winning a Gold medal for her country is a bigger prize than a Wimbledon trophy which she can win next year, or any year.
Plus if she chooses to team up with Nishikori in doubles, it could easily be 2 Golds!

Numbers falling in Tokyo including severe cases which indicate the downward trend is continuing. Most of the cases are in the young who socialize more and are less likely to develop serious symptoms from Covid. This is the right time for SOE restrictions to be eased and hopefully fully dropped on the coming months.
^^IOC bot alert ^^

Laughable. China is only several decades behind the US.
China has been stepping up cooperation with Russia
Collaborating with Russia - a nation whose space program is a relic of the Soviet Union era. Just like China's rebadged Soviet Aircraft Carriers! LOL

Stay strong Hong Kong and never lose your identity!
Far, far too late. Their identity as a territory where freedom of thought, speech and movement is finished, gone forever. The smart Hong Kongers have already made plans to get out, either to the UK for those over 24 years old, or elsewhere. They likely have only a ~ 6 month window before they are banned from leaving by their Communist masters.

Disgusting, but no shock at all. My heart goes out to all at Apple Daily, and all those in HK who believe in democracy and freedom. Sadly, this is not everyone.
Hong Kong, I'm afraid, is now a Nazi-like police state, where anyone who speaks out against the corrupt HK govt, is subject to sudden arrest and "disappearance".
Boycott Hong Kong, Boycott Communist China, Boycott the Genocide Games 2022!

Fined for having sex with a junior high school child? Sickening. This pedophile should be in prison for a long, long time - and the other inmates should be made well aware of his crimes.

Good for her. But it isnt really fair that Japan has to meet CO2 emissions reductions, while China can continue on its merry way polluting at huge levels. Why does China have a free pass to pollute?
China should be forced to make a committment before the developed nations like Japan pledge any more reductions in fossil fuel use.

Wise move by Suga Cabinet to protect Japan.
while the CDPJ and the Japanese Communist Party opposed.
Of course the Commies opposed the law. They are ruled by the Communist Party of China, who are no doubt eyeing buying up any prime Japanese land and islands they can.

Extremely despicable and insensitive move by SK. Summon the Korean Ambassador in Tokyo immediately and read him the riot act. Cease and desist this drill immediately.
they carry out annual military exercises to "protect" the rocks from invasion, by a country that has a constitution that prohibits them from using military force to settle territorial disputes. What a country.
Well argued. When the American-written constitution is scrapped, things are going to change. Japan will be able to take strong action and stop these drills. Make no mistake.

No doubt Coates pockets are stuffed with brown paper bags full of ¥10,000 notes. It will be 6 star hotels and kaiseki all the way, every day.
And he will constantly bang on about how everything is going perfectly to plan and that the Olympics will be held regardless of the majority public opposition.

Totally expected, and I called it at the time So much for the many naive posters (one or 2 above me here) claiming that the ruling "showed hope" that Korea-Japan relations had turned the page. Very naive.
The Korean government will never allow the judgment to stand. The official policy of Japan as the enemy will never change. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional or not well read.

We know these kneelers are political activists doubling as athletes.
Yet those who were booing the players were likely wildly cheering Raheem's goal a short time later, conveniently forgetting he is a "political activist".
The chants from the England "fans" in the terraces are usually political, every game they play, about the troubles in Northern Ireland, as well as WW2, which makes a mockery of their nonsense tbey dont want politics in sport. These "fans" are always preoccupied by politics.

$1.3 million isnt much money between two. Especially when they have a big, expensive legal team to pay, and are looking at probably 2 years hard labor.
If Ghosn had a thread of decency left, he will look after these two once they are released. He should come back and have his day in court.
