Posted in: Two new low-altitude routes introduced in April for landings at Haneda Airport enter Yokota airspace controlled by the U.S. military. Do you think it is right that the U.S. military should be able to control airspace in Japan? See in context

As long as Japan has to rely on USA for defense then they are obligated to provide assistance to u.s. military activities. If Japan assumes military capabilities to effectively defend and thwart aggression then the USA military forces can reduce their presence and questions like this become a non issue. This is the current reality. Emotionalism will make you feel good but won't protect Japan.

Posted in: After the coronavirus is contained worldwide, what do you think the global community's relationship with China will be like? See in context

Let's see. China suppresses millions of minorities in it's western regions by imprisonment, spying and intimidation and brutality. Elsewhere there is no negative questions or dissent allowed. Do so and you are visited by police institutions and threatened to shut up. Information about the pandemic is being withheld. Intellectual spying and hacking on western technologies is rampant. Aggressive military encroachment and threats in the south China Sea is escalating. Threats to other sovereign nation's like Australia for participating in an inquiry about the Wuhan virus, having students and paid operatives spy on dissidents in foreign countries, bribing scientists and businesses to steal secrets, etc., etc.

Is this a how a responsible nation conducts itself as responsible member of the global community?

Ha, ha! This coming from soon to be disgraced ex-president with all the release of official intelligence documents in Washington d.c. He and his band of crooks are facing their day of reckoning. You can bet on it.

Posted in: Japan to help shift output to ASEAN from China after virus disruption See in context

It's encouraging the government is recognizing the weakness in depending only on China. People forget that the hungry bear with the insatiable appetite will stop at nothing to overwhelm and subsume it's neighbors. The world is recognizing China's duplicity in international relations. Africa, southeast Asia, Australia, the middle east are waking up and are refusing to be bullied.

Posted in: Justice Department dropping Flynn's Trump-Russia case See in context

Read the official legal documents released to the DOJ and public first before reaching a opinion. A blind person would reach the same conclusion that this prosecution was indeed an abuse of power and an innocent person was targeted. Very chilling to see law enforcement officials behaving in a criminal manner. The foundations of democracy was abused.

Posted in: How would you compare the leadership shown by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike so far during the coronavirus outbreak? See in context

Looks appears to be more proactive and most importantly whether people agree with her or not, effectively communicates her message quite clearly.

Posted in: Vaccine opponents have been around for a long time. Their claims range from relatively modest safety concerns about specific vaccines or the risk of side effects to conspiracy theories that border on the bizarre. What do you think about them? See in context

People should have the right to make their own choices about vaccines. In America drug makers are protected from liability by law. A person can file a claim through the federal government but are also governed by a non-disclosure requirement. Millions have been paid out over the years for health or death damages but the public has little or no awareness of this.

Posted in: Japan records 503 coronavirus infections on Wednesday; biggest daily jump since start of pandemic See in context

I visited Tokyo for business in March 17-23 and was amazed at the complacency all around me wherever I went. I had my face mask and used social distancing wherever possible and kept hands clean. Does the behavior of the society explain their over reliance on government dictates as the determining factor regulating personal conduct?
