Japan needs to educate its fishermen on respecting other countries’ boundaries.

Posted in: Tamaki wants U.S., Japan, Okinawa talks on U.S. base move See in context

Bertie has a good point. According to USMC Maj Gen Smedley D Butler, who the MC bases in Okinawa are named after, DOD and its wars is the biggest racket, wich operates in 7 continents. His video enactment and essay are in the Internet. That explains why United States needs to manufacture enemies. Bill Still goes on to explain how the bankers took control over the governments through the central banks, which basically control the stakes in war industries,(hence the blatant War Department, which changed to “Defense” departement. His video documental, The Money Masters, is in You-Tube. An excellent documental.

Posted in: More Muslim prayer rooms open in Japan, but relatively few takers See in context

Catering to a particular ideology or group of people will only bring resentment to the ones being excluded. Why not call it any purpose or faith meditation room. This way it will be a silent prayer and nobody has to listen to somebody else’s loud prayers.

I agree with Kurisupisu. Took the words out of my mouth.

You are right Bertie. Unfortunately, Japan’s occupation status does not allow it to exercise its sovereignty in many of its own affairs.

Many cases like these took place when I was in Okinawa 10 years ago. I suspect the mixing of cheap alcohol, Happoshu, along with sake or shoshu, or both. Police should always inquire about what was drunk to possibly establish a trend. He was probably confused.

Russia is better off keeping its status quo. Any promise can be broken once you get what you want.

Posted in: U.S. demands Russia explain ex-Marine's detention on spying charges See in context

RT has a more detailed information. It states that he apparently was in contact with CIA officials. Good opportunity for Russia to make a swap deal. Semper Fi. Hope it works for the good on both sides.

Apparently no justice was delivered for these people. Whatever settlement is imposed should not bankrupt the company, nor does compensate for pain and suffering.

Posted in: Japan to start collecting ¥1,000 departure tax from Monday See in context

Apparently everything is resolved with taxes without regard to income status. Of course it would be difficult to apply and enforce an income-driven tax in this case. Just charge the airlines, which will pass it on to us.
