Posted in: Russian troops deploy in Crimea as Obama warns Kremlin See in context

Interesting. I am also wondering if we will support this nearly forgotten treaty that was signed in 1994:

This would be a litmus test of how America would respond to our Asian allies if they were ever in need.

No other airline that operates the 787 Dreamliner has announced any further problems. I am beginning to think it is the JAL maintenance crews are not properly trained.

Whatever happened to engagement? You have an opportunity to make a point directly to the Japanese people about the idiot's remarks.

Posted in: In Boeing 787 battery probe, X-rays may offer clues to past incidents See in context

I wonder if it is "user" error by the JAL maintenance teams. You do not read about any current similar problems with the other airlines that are now employing the 787 Dreamliner: ANA, United, etc...

Is it known if the Japanese companies that supply the lithium batteries manufacture them in Japan, or are they outsourced to China?

This happens everywhere, and certainly isn't an underculture in Japan. I think you are getting into murky territory by suggesting Japan is more prone to pedophillia than anywere else

I agree that it is a problem in every country in the world, but Japan has already engrained the idea of oversexuallizing young girls/women. Walk into any manga/otaku shop in Aikihabara and you will see examples of lolita items that border, on the best case, disturbing if not outright dancing on the pedophilia line out in the open.

The second place to go would be Mexico and the druggies.

Agreed. Mexico is full of corruption. Have the Mexicans be responsible for cleaning up their cesspool of a government.

Oh, and close the UN too.

Good story. A lot nicer to read this than the stories about perverts, child murders, and the other nuts that usually make up the Japanese news.

Posted in: Do you agree with Japan's decision to provide financial and other aid to Libya and South Sudan? See in context

How about NATO not even being in Libya in the first place? Even with the newest and flashiest bombs, there always will be collateral damage.

Posted in: Obama unveils $450 billion plan to spur jobs See in context

Paul: Yeah, how much? He has never put a specific plan on paper that details actual numbers on how entitlements will be cut. We have heard all of this before during the debt ceiling debate.

Posted in: Obama unveils $450 billion plan to spur jobs See in context

He makes a speech but doesn't tell specifically how he will pay for it. This speech could have been done from the Oval Office, and did not need the ceremony of a joint session of Congress.

@Christina

Gates was right. US will pull out of NATO if the European countries refuse to equally pay for their defense initiatives. If not, pull our troops out and let them pay for their own security.

Start closing the bases in Europe and pull the troops out of peacekeeping missions in Bosnia to save money.
