Misinformation that China, Russia and NK is putting out, they know if they can drive a wedge between the two they are pretty much on their way to achieving their goal. China has a bone to pick with everyone in land dispute, India, Russia, Japan, you name it. China is the slimy needle in that hay stack.

If there is a will, then there is a way! I guess the public has to now laugh at the "poked holes" and all the attention the protective barrier was perhaps trying to prevent. I guess it is a "poking holes" laughing matter now.

Police said the girl was in a child seat.

@Chabbawanga I'm sorry, but did you really read the article or did you assume? You missed one important fact in the this story the "Police said the girl was in a child seat". Yet another example of an abysmal comment. I guess it the speed reading. Never speaking of next level of ignorance, especially if you have to eat your own words.

Im sorry. This is yet another example of abysmal parenting. Why was the kid unbelted whilst the parent wasnt right next to them. Automatic windows take time to go up, why didnt the parent notice? Next level ignorance.

The world banks is bankrupt no money, borrow borrow and borrow, the governments print money and raise taxes to support their social programs and then tax the people. The people is the product of the countries in which they live. This is why they want young people to have children to continue paying the bills if there's no people they can't survive. Things will only get worse.

Posted in: 2 men face murder charges over burned bodies found in Tochigi See in context

What is wrong with people these days? Kang is about as stupid as they get. If some one was to ask me to kill some one for them and get rid of the bodies I would definitely go straight to the authorities, especially knowing either way I am damn if I do, and damn if I don't. I rather go with the don't do it, because at least I am not locked up in prison still with my freedom. Perhaps I would have to look over my shoulder for not carrying out the order, but on the other hand in prison you still have to look over your shoulder. The part I don't understand is Kang said "I was afraid of what might happen to me if I didn't do it." I guess in this case he didn't think he was going to get caught, because he didn't think about being AFRAID of the consequences from his actions.

Kang has told investigators he was asked to kill the couple and transport their bodies, and was quoted by them as saying, "I was afraid of what might happen to me if I didn't do it."

@Seth Majer and what your post says about America is all in the "STATE" of your mind. Are you disappointed the media isn't talking more about a certain topic you are hiding subliminally.

and what is funny is that a graduation speech from a conservative Catholic NFL kicker makes bigger news than this. State of America and the media right now.

LOL so Lil Kim get angered, by listening to and believing what his cronies Xi and small Pu said, so blows his stack and decides to fire off a missile.

Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping criticized Washington and its allies for what the leaders called "intimidation in the military sphere" against North Korea at a meeting in Beijing on Thursday.*

LMFAO China pollutes their rivers and streams and seem to have no idea of what contamination is, the water in china is so bad it turns different colors daily. As far as Russia is concerned they are just kissing cousin with China sooner or later that relationship will become nasty fighting over disputed land.

@OssanAmerica Do you really think other nationalities want to work in China? Working for China is working for the CCP. You put money in the bank to save once in hard to get out. Why go to work only to be harassed by ignorant bosses. I have a neighbor who live in AMERICA but runs her company in China from her home. She has cameras installed on the manufacturing floor where she watch her employees and correspond through internet etc.. She only travels their when she said she has to see the tax people I am like you put your foot down on your workers neck fire them and don't allow breaks but live a lush life here. She thinks nothing of it and just saying they have a good life. I am like WTF!

China is the world's 2nd laregest economy, but you don't hear of Japanese (or any othre nationality) working in convenience stores in China. Just hope that these folks do not get persecuted by the CCP's secret overseas police.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. move ahead in co-developing hypersonic weapons interceptor as regional threats grow See in context

Interesting old news but I know those companies very well. Lose lips sink ships!! Seeing is believing, very different from being well informed and involved!!

Japan and the United States on Wednesday signed an arrangement to jointly develop a new type of missile defense system as the allies seek to defend against the growing threat of hypersonic weapons, which are possessed by China and Russia and being tested by North Korea. The cost includes making components for the two companies, Raytheon Technologies and Northrop Grumman, that are developing the weapon in a competition led by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency. One will be chosen for the project.

@Yrral Let me google that!

China Russia,NK already have the capability to launch a decapitation strike against Tokyo as little as 5 minutes from any launch site

@Yrral Don't know where you get your information from your logic seems to amaze me. There is also a policy that rules of engagement can be over ruled in critical emergency need based on the situation. I GOOGLED THAT!!

USN,the US do not have a policy to use nukes to protect Japan,beside 2030 do not make up for an immediate 5 minutes decapitation strike in Tokyo,that they face now

@Sid LOL you left out the fact of buy her drinks during the dinner dates. Good question though! There is a difference in "Grooming and Pursuing" intentions.

When I met my wife I often took her out to dinner and gave her gifts, sometimes flowers or chocolates. Does this now come under the category of 'grooming'?

Posted in: Xi lauds China-Russia ties as he meets with Putin See in context

The two droolers shaking hands and both stabbing each other in the back. Russia has land that they took from China in the far north east now think about it if China wants Taiwan do you not think that Xi wants that land Russia occupies on their border. Putin on the other hand is cleaver as a fox he knows he is in a hole so he had to put his tail between his legs and play BIACH to Xi because he needs him to support his war in Ukraine he already used the fatboy and is getting military weapons from him. Xi uses Russia as a buffer because he know he can not fight a war against the US, Putin knows that also they would need NK, Iran, Russia and China to go to battle against the US, and its allies and NATO countries it would be a mess. So these two guys are just playing the game knowing they can't trust one another, but in the eyes of politics and survival they need one another to survive.

Posted in: Man drowns after being thrown or pushed into the sea by 2 men in Shizuoka Prefecture See in context

My assumption after reading this article would be you have some young kids who perhaps met up was having a good time perhaps drinking was involved and it was all fun and games and in the spirit of the moment they pushed a friend into the sea. I have been at parties where a swimming pool is and I have seen people pick their friend up and you can hear the person saying "I can't swim but the friends thinking its funny dumps their friend anyways" only to realize him/her struggling to try to get out in most cases those around who can swim get the person out. Its not funny after that! In this case it could have been all fun and games but the end result is tragic and now the laughter is silenced!

Posted in: 2 Vietnamese nationals arrested amid spate of burglaries See in context

@kiwiboy First this kind of crime is not something that Japan is experiencing daily. I am sure with any kind of crime they take serious. Why would you feel sorry for someone who commits such a crime. DO YOU THINK THEY FELT SORRY FOR THEIR VICTIMS. DO YOU FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR VICTIMS, your post supports the criminals. You said you feel sorry for those criminals because they come over with hopes of earning money, have you thought about them coming over and ruining ordinary citizens lives, you are talking about them working and surviving to send money back to their families. What about the trauma these idiots induced on the 70 year old man and perhaps his family. I guess it is true as I have posted before people thinking today is to reward those who do wrong and punish those who do right, your logic suggest this. You mentioned they came to earn money but couldn't earn as much money as the expected so in other words they go across the country breaking into homes because they didn't get what they expected the logic in other words when would they stop because if they are tied to the other crimes they wouldn't have stopped "because they didn't get enough money as expected to send back to their families" is that your logic? On top of it you said they are likely being EXPLOITED WTF, how do you know this? Are you are perhaps going on the premise of something you read in the daily news? You just can't support both logical reasons you either stand on one and support that one instead of saying "The police need to get very tough with this kind of crime". It needs to be made perfectly clear that it won't be accepted, and when caught, they'll be in a world of trouble". If the penalty isn't strong enough, it's going to happen more and more. When you are invited into a foreign country other than your native own you are their as a guest, you should not be told how to behave as an adult you should already know what is right and what is wrong. If you fell on hard times its best to go back to your country and make the best you could there, why make others live miserable. After all the guest country gave you an opportunity I am not going to go into exploitation etc,, because we don't read about successful stories news article are filled with negativity so people draw to that. My point is why feel sorry for a criminal who is having a miserable time surviving who decides to rob and steal to make themselves happy while making their honest carefree victims hopeless. WHAT DID they do to deserve such fright? You mentioned if the penalty isn't strong enough its going to happen more and more. Penalties regardless strong or weak does not stop a person hell bent on committing a crime this is why you have "Career Criminals" that is what they do they don't care about penalties because most think they will never get caught. If there is no crime then there is no need for a penalty so there for your logic for strong penalties don't work because when people get desperate they do desperate things. I am sorry, I don't feel sorry for a criminals who take advantage of the elderly or innocent people your logic supports their criminal habit. Hope is a dream when they came to Japan they were given the opportunity to go for that dream what ever happened while pursuing it doesn't mean you go on a crime spree!! I say you deal with your problem but not at the expense of harming others!

The police need to get very tough with this kind of crime.

I feel for the situation these young guys are in. They come over with hopes of earning money to send home for their families. Maybe the job fell through or doesn't earn them as much money as they expected, and they're very likely being exploited.....BUT..... you CAN'T go around tying people up and stealing their stuff!!

It needs to be made perfectly clear that it won't be accepted, and when caught, they'll be in a world of trouble.

If the penalty isn't strong enough, it's going to happen more and more

Posted in: Ex-interpreter for MLB star Shohei Ohtani pleads not guilty to bank and tax fraud See in context

Trying to get a plea bargain with the feds is like trying to pull teeth from a lions mouth. The feds know they have this case wrapped up. Ippe attorney wants to get on with the trial, this is why he is cooperating in trying to get a rush to get him a lower sentence. The feds don't have to give him anything they KNOW they have this case, and the bookie who they wants to sing, Ippei is a small fish. They always go after the big fish, Ippei is worthless to them, the feds want to follow the money trail and that is get to the top of the chain where the bookie takes his orders from. If ANYTHING the feds would probably drop the lessor charge, which was the false tax return because many Americans do this and they get a slap on the risk, but the bank fraud charge they will try to get him for the maximum 30 years in federal prison, federal time and state time is different in federal prison you do every day, in state prison for every one day you due 2 days. I can't see Ippei getting the lighter three years in federal prison sentence. If that happens everyone got paid part of Ohtani 17 million that would include the attorneys and the judge!

@Goals0 The Japanese commentator is just that!! If he ever been in a court in the US and understands the judicial system all one can say is YES or NO!! The reason being is ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU IN THE COURT OF LAW" I am sure his attorney told him to answer that way. It is no different when Japanese show up and bow would you say that act is asking for forgiveness? Is that a brownie point gesture? You don't have to say Yes, sir.' 'Yes, ma'am.' He is perhaps a city boy and not a country boy!

A Japanese commentator had an article a month or so ago saying that Mizuhara's replies must have annoyed the judge. He usually just answered 'yes'. Apparently it's conventional to say 'Yes, sir.' 'Yes, ma'am.' 'Yes. Judge.' Brownie points for 'Yes, your honor.'

Posted in: Around 68,000 elderly die alone in Japan annually: police See in context

@Jonathan Prin Are you saying those who died alone should blame no one but themselves for having no one to look after them because they had few children or none at all because they was too consumed with working? Have you ever thought that those who didn't have children were perhaps unable to have them? Have you thought about those who had children did have them but because of the dynamics of the way the cities they lived changed, from perhaps farming and small manufacturing communities and their children had no choice but to move to the bigger cities. You say you are not surprised, what surprises me is your inability to understand the simple reasons of why we just can't blame those dying alone for not having children or having fewer children. Yes when you grandparents died its great they didn't die alone and you say your parents will not die alone. My question is how do you KNOW this, you might die before them!! Now that is a logical true statement regardless of how much love and friendship you gave. It seems you are asking for a reward that you too might not get because you will never know!

Guess what, when you have so few children, one or none, and social distance is high because you cared about work only, nothing surprising. My grandparents died not "alone". And my parents will not die alone. It is all about love and friendship you gave before.
