Posted in: Abe's killer tested homemade gun at religious group's facility: sources See in context

This "religious group" was the moonies. Why won't any news agency report that? LDP and Sun Myung Moon have been affiliated for decades.

Posted in: Town in Yamaguchi sends everyone’s COVID-19 relief money to one person See in context

I'm surprised the city knows the bank account of every household in town.

The clerk who made the 'mistake' should be watched, this could be a team effort.

Bank transfers can be traced easily. Cash withdrawals/deposits are probably on CCTV.

City officials sound like they need to be replaced.

Posted in: Japan rejects S Korean calls for scrapping of tech export curbs See in context

Korea should look for 'comfort' somewhere else. Japan settled war issues long ago. Recent korean court decisions have unexpected results. Japan has every right to regulate exports. I think this response is brilliant!

Posted in: U.S. President Donald Trump says the U.S.-Japan security pact is unfair and has to be changed. Do you agree with him? See in context

Requirements on Japan are too harsh. Troops and planes could be located elsewhere in the Pacific and perform the same function. The current treaty is a continuation of post-war punishment.

Posted in: MLB All-Stars visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park See in context

I watched the "World Series Champion" St. Louis Cardinals play Japanese all stars in the old Hiroshima stadium in 1969 so this isn't the first time MLB has been there.

Posted in: Would you be in favor of Japan switching to daylight saving time in summer? See in context

'Daylight Savings Time' or 'Summertime' is just mental masturbation. Set schedules one (or two) hours earlier. People are smart enough to follow the sunrise. Farmers have done it for centuries.

Posted in: Aum cult founder Asahara, 6 followers hanged See in context

This took too long. Cold blooded murderers should face justice within a decade.

Posted in: Japanese firms shift to clean energy despite state's cling to nuclear power See in context

TEPCO and the DJP are so in bed together, Nuclear will always be their pick. That's why TEPCO doesn't have to pay for the 3/11 cleanup.

Posted in: Trump to meet emperor, abductees' relatives, discuss trade, N Korea with Abe See in context

Japan is such a USA lapdog. Abe's lack of balls is only exceeded by his corruption. Trump imagined Japanese Samurai would shoot down the NK missiles. Not with USA weapons! Too embarrassing if they don't work

Posted in: Ex-reporter files lawsuit over comfort women stories See in context

I hope he has a chance with this lawsuit. Right wingers want to stick their heads in the sand and deny, deny, deny!

Posted in: Harpoonless Japanese whalers heading for Antarctic See in context

Finally something that might actually be research. Schoolkids will be grateful not to have whale forced on them.
