Posted in: Japanese lawmakers want gov't to look into UFOs See in context

Click bait... they are not looking into aliens they are looking into aircraft from other countries that they have not seen before.

"If they turn out to be cutting-edge weapons from other countries or unmanned reconnaissance planes ... they can be a serious threat to our country's security," Asakawa added.

Why are you blaming humans for the holes? It could be birds or bats flying into a big black net at night perhaps? Might even be cats climbing it?

44 years in jail and the guy is 88 years old, just let him live the rest of his life. Why are they wasting resources?

Posted in: China coast guard confronts Japanese politicians in disputed East China Sea area See in context

So curious as the USA takes no position on the sovereignty of Senkaku/Diaoyu. Clearly it is a regional matter for Japan and China to negotiate.

The US also supports Japan and state the islands belong to Japan, as does the rest of the world, except China.

The Yakuza are nothing but thugs that sell drugs, extort people, and deal with human trafficking. Don't make them out to be glorious glowing organisation.

@2020hindsights:

So if any foreign government doesn't like any content it can remove it from the internet? Anything? You see the problem?

Most posters are not.

Poster here are failing to see the issue. Musk isn't standing up to Australia and not China, both countries, Australia and China, ask for content to be removed for the safety of their citizens, and it is removed in their geo region. But only Australia wants it removed for the entire world, unlike China.

X removed it for Australians, but Australia wants it removed for the rest of the world. Australia laws don't cover the rest of the world.
