What would Japan have done if they had the bomb first? Or Germany for that matter.

At least I haven’t been hearing so much about the genetic resilience of the Japanese to the virus

Even if you can touch all four walls, at least there is affordable accommodation In Tokyo, unlike New York for example, where apartments are bigger but ordinary people are just priced out of the rental market or parts of Australia, where middle class people are sleeping in tents.

Well. In the mean time Australian mining companies are selling tons and tons of iron ore and other commodities to China. I bet none of them are being used to build the aircraft carriers or another other military hardware.

Yes, but how much better to be able to acquire those commodities from a captive, vassal state.

Just more of the messy, consensus based gibberish that passes for official statements in this country

I’m surprised he wasn’t given some kind of orientation including zero tolerance re drugs. He can’t be the first one to have them, just unlucky to be caught. The club would be aware of this. It must be very lax or naive, or perhaps doesn’t know how to communicate with its foreign stars. The zero drugs policy is taught to high school students at international schools in Japan. Not staying that stops them.

Kono is an unattractive strutting peacock but on the other hand, being a ‘maverick’, he might actually get stuff done, which would be a breath of fresh air. Doesn’t hurt Japan (or the US) that he’s also pro-US.
