Posted in: Operator of tanker says sailors saw 'flying objects' just before attack See in context

Could be Saudi Arabia or Israel with the US's blessing. I'm a proud American but we do get up to some sneaky $h!t sometimes.


Trump ran on a non-interventionist, America First platform.

But he made his deal with the Devil to get into the White House.

Now we're seeing the fruits of that: the Neocons are the ones in charge.

Posted in: U.S. says Iran took mine off tanker See in context

John Bolton, our National Security Advisor, is a founding member of the neocon group, Project for a New American Century, along with Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. In Dubya's Presidency, Bolton helped concoct the fake WMD crisis in 2003 to justify going to war against Iraq, which was no threat to us.

Now, just as Bolton and Pompeo are beating the drums of war against Iran, Iran invites war against itself by attacking civilian tankers for no discernible reason, military or diplomatic. 

I'm not buying it. 

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me, John Bolton.

This is 100% it.

The neocons are back and they want the Iraq War 2. They do Bibi's bidding and use the US military, and American lives, as their cannon fodder in the Middle East.

A properly functioning democracy is perhaps the only way to prevent authoritarian dictatorships.

Define properly functioning.

The US is a representative democracy/republic, not a direct democracy, if you meant the latter.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic CEO reminds visitors that cannabis is banned in Japan See in context

And so you know how many chemicals are in tobacco! The most damaging thing about traditional cannabis is the tobacco people mix it with to smoke

And the temptation to wake and bake. Basically, to be stoned all the time. Trust me, I've been there. It makes you slow and stupid, and it also decreases your testosterone. There's a reason it's legal in North Korea.

It's fine on occasion, when all the day's work is done though.

Posted in: Abe meets Iranian president; warns of armed conflict amid soaring tension with U.S. See in context

Iran is 10,000 kms away from the United States. Iranian warships are not steaming up the Hudson-how on earth can tensions be soaring at such a great geographical distance?

Israel feels threatened by Iran.

America is Israel's bodyguard in the ME.

Posted in: Japan grapples with traffic jams, visitors' manners amid tourism boom See in context

What exactly are they talking about? Farting too loud? Pissing on the floor? Taking a peek? What sort of manners do you need in a bathroom that is not being upheld?

Not flushing toilet paper down the toilet.

Standing and squatting on the western toilets.

Knocking loudly on the stall door when it's clearly locked and occupied.

I don't even want to get into women's bathrooms. Let's just say blood and feces shouldn't go onto walls.

Posted in: Trump publicly opposes using CIA informants against North Korea's Kim See in context

A beautiful letter. The best letter ever. A beautiful, beautiful, bestest letter in the history of the universe.

Weak impersonation.

Here's what Trump would have said:

"It stands as one of the all-time great letters, Perhaps the greatest ever, but we'll see what happens in the near future. As you know, Leader Kim and I have a good relationship, I like him, he likes me, or at least I hope he likes me, but, we get along. Wouldn't it be great if we got along with countries like North Korea, and Russia? You used to have missiles flying over Japan; now? No missiles. No tests. No nothing. I consider that a win, the fake news media might not, but I do."

Posted in: Samoa bans hit Elton John biopic over gay sex scenes See in context

So a film about the life of a world famous musician shouldn't include a big part of his personality, private life?

Do we need to watch him having sex?

But it is an Island nation with a fundamentalist Christian take on "God". 

Oh, but then you put God in quotation marks, so we know your politics.

Posted in: Singer Ayumi Hamasaki criticized by fans for 'inappropriate' Instagram picture See in context

It's funny, because earlier in the day, I was chatting with Ayumi in the supermarket. Another customer noticed that she was holding a barcode, and then asked us if we were an item...

The fact that this advanced-level Dad joke was downvoted just shows you how humorless people are around here.

And we're criticizing outraged netizens? Just take a look in the mirror.

It does look like something I would do as a bored 12 year old up to no good in the supermarket.

I guess it does makes her look trashy.

Posted in: Thousands protest against Trump in London See in context

The interesting thing is that Trump has been on his bets behavior this entire trip; he's been shockingly presidential, dignified, and diplomatic.

He's made these protesters look like boors in comparison.

Posted in: Labor minister opposes banning female dress codes with high heels See in context

 It would be better for society if men would empower women and let go of the idea that they need to control them.


As evidenced by countries like the US, women don't want equality, they want to control and dominate men. You can't let them.

Posted in: Labor minister opposes banning female dress codes with high heels See in context

In general, there's no reason for most women to work in formal offices with men.

So, if they're going to do it, they need to at least look attractive.

Why would Japan have a problem with wheelchair users? Genuine question. Not everyone is healthy/young/able-bodied. Sometimes people lose use of their legs in accidents that aren't their fault. No reason to make an already hard life even harder.

Trump: doing whatever he can to further divide the US. With help from far-right, ultra-nationalist organizations and authoritarian regimes (secular and religious) around the globe.

Yeah, the progressives aren't doing anything divisive at all. No racist, misandrist or other exclusionary rhetoric coming from them at all.

Posted in: Mexican president hints at migration concessions to defuse U.S. trade spat See in context

Mexico benefits greatly from its citizens migrating illegally to the US and remitting money back. It will do nothing to stem the flow of Mexican illegals.

However, Mexico does not benefit from Central American illegals going through its country to get to the US. The caravan was widely criticized in Mexico because those illegals were trashing places, and being demanding and entitled about free food given to them. Almost all Mexicans were shocked and angered by that.

So, Mexico will crack down hard on the latter.

This isn't just a Japanese problem.

Look at all the school shooters. Or even the owners of pit bulls that end up attacking and killing a child or elderly person.

"He was always so calm, I never imagined he would do this..."

People have soft spots for their own family, because we try to think the best of them. But in these cases, what would otherwise be an innocent delusion is actually dangerous. If your child is mentally ill, you need to deal with it. Don't point fingers, don't worry about face or your family's reputation. It can happen to the best of families and parents (though usually it's caused by poor parenting).
