The Koreans really are hypocritical. Remember all those unified flags at their Winter Olympics incorporating Takeshima? The Koreans just won't drop this proxy war.

I wouldn't compare those "wars".

The first one is a large scale war including tortures, rapes and public executions.

The latter is a geopolitical argument about islands.

Mongolia's Annual Household Income per Capita 1,414.776 USD (2017)

Sometimes numbers make the choice easier.

Smells like Bush's "coalition" to invade Iraq based on fake proofs.

Japan is wise not to fall for that.

Boys are mainly interested in working with screens.

No more human interaction.

That's sad.

I've been renting a house in Wakayama Kii with thin walls, thin windows and gaps under every doors.

But owners though it's better to install 2 AC that would work H24 instead of insulating the house.

Posted in: Abe says no need to raise sales tax beyond 10% for decade See in context

The low consumption tax policy showed its limits.

As said in the article, the social services in Japan need money otherwise this country has a dark future with its aging population and its low birth rate.

No politician wants now to scare electors with a new tax raise but it seems necessary.

If it displays the degree of trust upon a country. It's so good for Japanese people.

Lol, that's so naive.

It shows how economically interesting the japanese tourists are.

Otherwise japan passeport would have the same access worldwide as the rest of the world passeports have access to Japan.

When it comes to the US economy however, unemployment is at record lows and the US is doing extremely well. Shows the benefits of having a business friendly President.

It's a tainted, short term result.

A future crisis is ahead.

Economists are pointing out the low-qualified, low-salary jobs created, the low level of productivity, the low level of companies investment, the increasing inflation and deficit.

It's just a ticking bomb.

And, most of the time, the economical results of a presidency appear on the next mandate.

It's all about physical and financial compensations nothing about kid's trauma.

A psychologist service would be useful to prevent post-trauma suicidal attempt.

I don't encourage this kind of art.

But what bothers me here, is to insist on the fact that the guy was australian, not japanese.

In other media around the world, other suspect's traits would come first.

Any teenager in Japan can have access to hentai mangas glorifying perversion and rape.

Peeping on other girls is much less sordid to me.

Japanese taking back the control helped by a rotten justice system.

6 years is pretty good going as this is new territory for robotics!

Right after the Fukushima accident, foreign countries with knowledge and operational robots proposed their help. THIS ISN'T A NEW TERRITORY FOR ROBOTICS AT ALL !!!

The proud japanese government refused the help.
