Posted in: Mercy pleas for Indonesia death row inmates as families arrive See in context

Thank you Japan Times for what I see as a very well written article. While they are still alive hope should also be kept alive. These people were not the people that made the drugs, or who provided the money to buy the drugs or who were the people who were going to distribute the drugs. These people, young people who were taken in and used and were caught. Gaol, yes, death no.

Posted in: Restart of Japan's largest nuclear plant still in doubt See in context

Starting will only give them a bigger profit. Shame on them. With people still displaced and with land that will still be contaminated for 1000's of years it is outrageous. I applaud the Governor for his stand. With talk of the big Tokyo quake being reality how could anybody guarantee a reactors integrity ever again.

Even in times of recession the government can afford money to continue this important scientific research. This is most inspiring and the people of Japan should be proud.

First price rise in seven years. Nissin should be congratulated! In Australia the price of everything seems to go up on a daily basis. Complainers harden up!

Posted in: Suga says Japan will keep on whaling, despite resolution See in context

Very sad to hear, just cannot understand their determination especially when even at the lowest level it costs more than it makes. For sure Japan has more pressing issues including aging population, downturn in manufacturing and energy production! I would hope they just quit!

Interim storage facilities....Will they be like the leaking storage tanks they've already built? Interim so they don't need to last?

They're safe enough.. Fukushima was safe enough too! Kyshu is fault ridden and an Island with live volcano's. Are we to believe these reactors are equipped to survive when Fukushima didn't!

Why aren't growing numbers of unemployed be utilized to build new houses? For sure this would also help rebuild the national economy as well.

Western countries companies must be so envious of Japanese workers who year after year happily for the company receive no wage rises.

Here's an idea....don't do the test and simply ask America or France for the results...or even track down the journal where they were probably printed.

Posted in: Homeless recruited by yakuza for Fukushima clean-up See in context

And there will be nobody by their side in years to come as they die a slow and painful death as their bodies are overcome with cancer. It is just another sad demonstration of those in charge of the clean-up. No real respect for anybody.

Posted in: Japan hangs two death-row inmates See in context

In a perfect world only guilty people would be executed but time after time people's innocence has been discovered after the fact. This alone should be the very reason capital punishment is abolised...For the supporters, imagine if you were innocent and executed....would this change your view? I am Australian and am proud that constitutionally the death penalty can never be reintroduced in Australia.

Western media are reporting the incredible dangers of this next phase and that if a mistake was made the radiation catastrophe could see a forced evacuation of Tokyo. I dearly hope this has not been rushed to save face and they get it right!
