It is the Japanese way.

Posted in: Experts warn Japanese growing complacent of coronavirus risk See in context

Japan was given a gift of extra time and how did they use it?

Fretting about the Olympics.

Japan is a ticking time bomb for this virus.

It has all the makings of the Italy scenario repeated.

Deep down inside, we know we have no future.

Why bother having children without that essential ingredient?

Posted in: Petition to boycott Netflix adaptation of 'Death Note' reaches Japan See in context

This was all started by a bunch of bored white people with entirely too much time on their hand. So of course it crossed over to Japan quite easily.

Posted in: Would you recommend that people get a flu shot before the onset of winter? See in context

I know I'm a little old fashioned, but I get all of my medical recommendations from my doctor. Though I suppose when he hangs up his stethoscope I may start taking recommendations from random people on the Internet.

Posted in: Abe congratulates Trump; calls U.S., Japan 'unshakeable allies' See in context

“Japan and the United States are unshakeable allies connected by common values such as freedom, democracy, basic human rights and rule of law.”

I can only hope Abe was wearing the ruby slippers when he said that.

Posted in: Japan wary over Philippine leader's policy, manners in front of emperor See in context

The Emperor has handled Abe and his proto-fascist brigade quite well. I'm sure he can deal with this nutter Duterte in much the same manner.

Posted in: Japan's defense contractors get to grips with foreign military buyers See in context

Japan already gives money and technology to its current enemy, China. Why not give weapons to their future enemies as well? What could possibly go wrong with short sighted/short term profits leading the way? Nothing I'm sure.

Posted in: Japan gives Philippines patrol ships, discusses new rail project See in context

Too bad Duterte has now signalled that he will hold bilateral talks with China. Those very ships could be turned against Japan's interests or at the very least do absolutely nothing to support them. Japan foreign diplomacy is often the example of getting nothing for something.

It's not sexism. It's Japanese culture! Flashes vacuous peace sign and leaves the thread.

Posted in: Do you think Prime Minister Shinzo Abe should visit Pearl Harbor to reciprocate for President Barack Obama’s historic trip to Hiroshima? See in context

What exactly is an insincere apology from a neofascist Nationalist worth these days?

Diddly squat.

Posted in: Abe oblivious to people's hardships, says tabloid See in context

Abe and Japan are simply made for each other. The Japanese love to suffer quietly and with 'dignity' ... and he, and his neo-fascist ilk, are most definitely the right men and women to make that happen eternally.

Posted in: Abe hits out at Russian PM's visit to disputed islands See in context

They've got a new airport, seaport, infrastructure and factories. You've got ... hurt feelings and vague memories. It might be time to face the reality of the situation.

Posted in: Abe: Japan must face history, but future generations should not have to keep apologizing See in context

"Japan will firmly uphold basic values such as democracy" ... by enacting State secrecy laws and circumventing the core of the constitution.

"While taking silent pride in the path we have walked as a peace-loving nation" ... by overturning our self-imposed arms export embargo and gleefully diving in to the exciting and profitable business of world arms exporter.

"we Japanese, across generations, must squarely face the history of the past" ... by asking publishers, foreign and domestic, to change their textbooks to fall in line with current revisionist/nationalist views.

Don't get me wrong, it is a very nice speech. It is simply a national shame that it is a complete load of poppycock.

Posted in: Pentagon chief says U.S. flights over South China Sea will go on See in context

Countries really need to reconsider doing business with China. Will it be economically painful? Yes, of course it will. But how do we think an all out war with China will affect the global economy? We need to quit enabling this country, yesterday. But with most of the world running on pure greed and short-sighted monetary morality, I just don't think it will happen.
