Posted in: Obama says U.S. should offer paid maternity leave See in context

The smart people will safely and easily win again. The voters are too dumb. First pandering the black votes..now for the women votes. Slam dunk. Once getting to keep the Throne (Game of), pharma and other Dem affiliated industries win bigger chunks of taxpayer money than GOP affiliated industries like the Defense (war) industries.

Posted in: Obama says U.S. should offer paid maternity leave See in context

Paid maternity leave is a benefit introduced to encourage women to have children by countries with Low Birthrate problem. Is U.S. faced with an issue of population decrease? NO! Nice smart move by the administration to encourage inflation and steady the current economic model of continuous growth in demand (consumption). People are like sheep. Mehehehe

Posted in: S Korea expresses relief over Abe's comments on Japan war apologies See in context

How many bargaining chips does one bring to the negotiating table? :-D. If people would only realize this, there wouldn't be conundrums. 1) We may or may not take back our apologies. 2) We will push international committee to call Sea of Japan as East Sea. 3) We may or may not revise our kids' history textbook. 4) you may not visit Yaskuni shrine. The list goes on and on. People. These are all BS bargaining chips nations use in negotiation tactics when discussing the real issues like trade agreements. Don't get sucked into it.

Military tensions and even some minor outbursts of battles in this region are good for the US economy. $ell billions of dollars worth of bombs, missiles, fighter jets etc. to Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines and whoever is afraid of China. Washington really needs to pay Beijing a 10% commission.

Posted in: S Korean paper says A-bombs on Japan were 'divine punishment' See in context

Oh, the God-mongers have infested the once militant atheist nation. A Divine punishment? The author of the editorial probably believes that any and all traffic accidents are divine justice done unto the sinners.

Posted in: Hashimoto says S Korean troops guilty of wartime sex abuse See in context

Europeans are laughing. Guys. This is embarassing. Wars come with rapes, systematic or not. Millions of women were raped by troops of all sides during WWII in Europe. Lucky ones lived to tell about it. It's time to put the pains of the past behind us.

Why is the president visiting the national cemetery of his country of any business in the minds of people in other countries?

It was the right thing to do. Hurray for the EU. Torturing and maiming animals is just as cruel as doing the same on the humans.

People go a long way to preserve their Right to Eat certain other intelligent species at this planet. And how the media is portraying this issue as if Japan's national interest is at stake... Instigating fights and arousing the anti foreigner feelings. Folks. Do not support people and businesses that sell whale flesh if you do not eat it.

Posted in: 'Dokdo' island classes to become mandatory for S Korean children See in context

Looks like the SK govt is playing tit for tat. "Okay. You hold a street rally for territory claim? We will increase the number of pages in school textbooks regarding our claim". LOL, not really. Sad. Both sides need to stop.

Posted in: S Korean court rejects Japan extradition request for Chinese arsonist See in context

It's a shame that JT is not releasing the behind the scene story as to why SK govt refused extradition. South Korea used this arsonist nut job against China for holding a Korean citizen in a Chinese prison for human rights activism. It's like saying "You release one of ours and I won't send this guy to Japan so he can be fried". And, I can't believe some of you posted things like how South Korea must be a Chinese state and crap. Are Koreans to be either pro-Japan or pro-China? They can't be looking out for their own interest?

Posted in: Toyota begins exports of U.S.-made Venza to South Korea See in context

That was a point ot the story, folks. Japan and South Korea must sign an FTA. |t is a crime against Mother Earth to ship the car parts 8,000 miles to USA, have them assembled into cars, then ship the cars back 8,000 miles back across the Pacific to sell them in Asia.

Posted in: Toyota begins exports of U.S.-made Venza to South Korea See in context

The USA and South Korea have a free trade agreement in place. Japan and South Korea do not. In Seoul, a Honda Civic from Japan would cost about the same as a Toyota Venza from USA because of the tarrifs put on the Civic. Nationalism aside, do you guys think this is right? This is happening all over the world.

Now, a Honda Civic assembled in Japan will cost about the same as a Toyota Venza from USA in South Korea.

Posted in: S Korea suspends first military accords with Japan See in context

ExportExpert et al: This issue is not about Japan vs Korea nor is it about prostitution. It is about a government's past wrong-doing. To get past the past hurt, it is best to compensate victims and move on with a clean state.

Posted in: S Korea suspends first military accords with Japan See in context

Okay, the "official" reason for postponing the signing of the accord is public sentiment. The "real" reason is probably CHINA. The #1 trade partner of South Korea is China. SK's trade with China is larger than its combined trade with US and EU. You don't want to anger your number one customer! Hello, guys, THINK!

Keep increasing visibility, LGBT citizens of Japan! It is difficult to be openly gay when there's employment discrimination amongst other animosities. My hats are off to you for attending the pride celebration!!!

Posted in: Korean idol enrages Japanese netizens by eating instant noodles from the pot See in context

Oh come on. It was obviously a comedic advertisement. Anyone who have traveled to SK would know that the Koreans abhor the table manners of their Asian neighbors for grabbing and holding bowls/plates in their hands while eating. In Korea, you cannot. All dishware must stay on the table and you pick up food with spoons, fork, & chop sticks.
