Failing to face up to wartime atrocities does Japan no favours.

Posted in: Rugby World Cup quarterfinals: Major rivalries and a surprise package See in context

Personally, I can't see Japan beating the springboks. Great effort to make it this far, but the boks will be out for revenge and won't be caught napping this time.

France /Wales game will depend on which France team turns up.

Australia /England, probably England, but an upset is definitely on the cards, especially if Petaia has a good game, hugely talented.

I think NZ is a bridge too far for Ireland.

My $0.02.

Posted in: Trump leaves Turkey and Syria to argue it out; Pelosi says he had 'meltdown' See in context

Of course he had a meltdown, he's a giant baby. He trades in personal invective because he has no understanding of policy. Just yesterday he was berating the French for their unfair trade practices in selling Renault cars in the US - Renault hasn't been sold in the US since 1989.

Posted in: Money, hatred for the Kurds drives Turkey's Syrian fighters See in context

> Trump's not abandoning them. Enormous economic pressure is being put on Turkey to not go too far with this military assault

Sanctions might have an effect in 12 months or so, great comfort to the thousands of abandoned Kurds killed in the meantime, I'm sure.

Question for the anti-Trumpers - Where's the UN?

> Second question - Where's the UN?

> Final question - Where's the UN?

So you want the UN's help now?

@burningbush Why do you think women's only carriages and apartments are necessary? You are either hilariously uninformed or being facetious.

Japan's $$$ does not give it the right to dictate to the rest of the world. A vote has been taken, Japan lost. Respect the decision.

Yes, an uncomfortable truth. They have been the dirtiest team at the WC. Glad they're out.

Posted in: Kobe Steel is the latest company to enter Japan's "corporate hall of shame" after admitting to falsifying inspection data. Have these scandals involving companies in various industries made you think twice about buying Japanese products? See in context

Generally I find Japanese products of good quality, but recently I've felt things are sliding. The Takata airbag problems concerned me not just because it was the biggest recall in history and resulted in many deaths and injuries, but also because of how many Japanese I met who were completely convinced that it was just other countries out to attack Japan. Attitudes like that don't inspire confidence.

I was trying to understand what article you were suggesting I provide links for- if you are referring to the last sentence of the 3rd paragraph, I can clear that up. I was talking about the things people on this board had said about the woman in the main article on this page, not another article or other people. I hope that clears it up a little.
