Posted in: Japan's two biggest opposition parties to join forces in Diet See in context

Sorry, I shouldve clarified: presidents being jailed after leaving office. If they did something wrong, why not impeach while in office? Seems like how they deal with elections in some African countries. I personally don't think there should be one chief executive in a winner take all. Either 7 coequal councillors (swiss) or full parliamentary with safeguards (ie reserve executive symbol of state president, and a political leader - prime minister).

You would need to do this for the entire 88-member Assembly of Experts who appoint a new ayatollah, and the 12-member Guardian Council who appoints them. Almost like american higher education system - education Department to higher education board to accrediting agencies to the actual university.

South Korea isn't too hot either. Nearly every president has been arrested after term. Sweden, New Zealand, and Switzerland are better role models for both countries...and the US.

Why not design a wheelchair that can walk up steps? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier, especially with modern tech, to modify the disabled mode of transport than than to modify the building?

OssanAmerica:

This is a slippery slope that the US had implemented. Despite being an actual military, originally, america was just the country proper, then it became the embassies and consulates, but then it became US persons (primarily military troops as observers) anywhere in the world. By that logic, the US sovereign territory is the entire world and other countries be dimmed. Just don't get their oil shipped that way. Good opportunity for Japan to buy some Canadian and American oil. Everybody's happy...except the chickenhawks and MIC.

Posted in: Chinese K-pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong See in context

Putting aside where one stands on hong kong and taiwan in regards to China, having different language options does not destroy territorial integrity. US and Canada have been using Spanish and French, respectively, along with majority English. Sure Quebec threatens to leave every so often, but democracy (parliamentary- the better kind, IMHO, though not proportionally representative) and referenda ease the tensions and gives federal govt legitimacy. To paraphrase Princess/Senator/General/Supreme Rebel Commader/Etc "the more you tighten your grip, the easier it is to slip through."

I believe the members are in a k-pop band in korea. Granted, if they were based in China I would call them c-pop.

SELF defence force. It's in the name. Is the middle east in Japan?

Wish the US had an SDF. Could've saved lots of lives and money.

I still find it funny that a locale in the States will say it's 67% minority population. Do they know the definition of minority? 49% and below is a minority...

Posted in: Warren apologizes for heritage claim; woos Native Americans See in context

It's racist when to be considered native American, you have to have a tribal govt validate you and get blood quantums but not require Japanese Americans to have Japanese govt validate their ancestry and require a certain percentage of ancestry.

Ganbare japan:

"Just like saying 99% of citizens in North Korea "support their government ". It means nothing in a one-party communist dictatorship."

In recent news, the 1% who said they did not support their govt have either changed their mind, said they misunderstood the question, or have mysteriously disappeared.

I doubt Beijing will let Lam resign. The yellow vest protests have been going on in France for some time and there are injuries too. US would probably have homeland security detain (since they handle airports) and spin to call them terrorists and disrupting the economy. That being said, China has no outlet (free and fair elections, free speech, etc).
