I bet NK is thinking precisely the same thing about Japanese missiles. Just makes a first strike by NK more likely. Arms races cannot be won.

@wa4tkg No it doesn't.
It makes me think China and surrounding countries (Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, NZ etc) handled the virus response well. People cooperated and did what they were asked to do in a united non-political way. Completely the opposite of the US.

"I think it's a major challenge for NEC. It requires more than radios, it requires investing in people who can do system integration, sales, customer support, network design and engineering,"
Precisely what kind of people have they been hiring then for the last few decades?
Japan once lead the world in mobile phones and networks...didn't they need those kinds of people then?

Please get a grip. We are talking about any PR who left Japan after mid-April or who wants to leave now. Unless there was a death in the family, or similar, they cannot re-enter Japan.
My Japanese wife is a PR of my native country. Like all G7 countries, except Japan, they allow their PRs to enter the country and self-quarantine. If we fly there today to see our family only she can re-enter Japan. Sounds like discrimination to me.

Precisely. He wants to take the lead to try to tone down the statement and reduce offence to China. You can imagine the statement Trump will push for.

Bjorn, what is you point?
40-50% of a modern cities space is used for roads and car parks. How much of it goes for bike lanes?Where I live in Kyoto the vast majority of people do not travel by car, but pay for all that infrastructure and related pollution anyway.

So many car driving old farts on this site. Please show me the evidence of cyclists killing and maiming huge numbers of people. Be sure to compare to deaths caused by motor vehicles please. Then add in the noise and air pollution. The bicycle is the best ever form of urban transportation.

It is the responsibility of the party who has the complaint to file an action at the ICJ. Not the other way around
SK has no complaint. Their Supreme Court made a ruling and they are proceeding accordingly.
Japan opposes this ruling and so is the complainant. Since it is an international issue they should go to the ICJ.
Get a grip.

The article does not give the result. Tamaki ended up with 25 seats, down one, with 23 for the opposition.

I believe it was Japan that mixed the concepts of the Korean Supreme Court ruling against Sumitomo for WW2 slave labour issues with trade sanctions on semiconductor materials.

Posted in: America's interests at home and abroad are no longer served by footing the defense bill for a demilitarized Japan. It's time to fully unleash the extraordinary resilience of the Japanese people to help the U.S. better ward off communist China's regional aggression. See in context
If US interests are no longer served here would you please pack up and leave, cleaning up your mess as you go. Thank you and good bye.

So why doesn't Japan take it's case to the ICJ? That is what the ICJ is for. Afraid they may lose?
And why does Japan complain when Korea goes to the WTO? That is what the WTO is for. Afraid they may lose?

If you go to Worldometers and sort on the tests per million column you will see that there is basically no correlation with the deaths per million column.
Of course Japan has more cases than the 17,000 announced. But if you believe you can be lucky that many times please go to a casino.
The fact that even Tokyo andOsaka avoided large scale outbreaks is due to the fact that the retransmission rate between people is less than 1 on the average. This has to do with people's behaviour, the number of different people one meets each day and so on.
In fact all nearby Asian countries have much lower death rates than Europe and North America.

Kurokawa was the guy in charge for the Ghosn case and Abe was trying to reward him for services rendered.
Just shows how corrupt the Tokyo prosecutors office is. A pawn of the government.
Good riddance and kudos to all those Japanese who outed Abe on this.

According to Worldometers, South Korea had 26 new cases and 2 deaths yesterday, same rate as last two weeks, more or less. What explosion are you talking about?

Indeed, we do not want this, need this or want to pour huge money down the drain. Abe did Trump a favour in a futile attempt to "correct" the trade balance with the US. Dump Aegis and Abe with it.

iOS, unlike Android, is not open source software and we cannot see the source code. This makes detecting these kinds attacks extremely difficult by anyone except Apple. This is 100% on them. Avraham is a genius.

If people are dying, but they were never tested before then they wouldn't be considered COVID-19 related. They are also not testing people who have already died.
I agree that it is likely that many Covid-19 deaths are not reported for these reasons.
Nevertheless 10k people have tested positive and were hospitalized, of which only 190 have died of Covid-19. Very low by international standards.
I simply don't believe hospitals are in some mass conspiracy to hide hundreds of other deaths among these 10k patients. The policy of hospitalizing people does seem to pay off. Maybe it will be unsustainable though.

Indeed why can't this country make paper masks 3 months into this thing? Outrageous incompetence by the government and industrial leaders.
Son has a firm contract, the Japanese government is still just "targetting". Good for Son!
