Posted in: As crisis in Ukraine grows, aid agencies rush in supplies See in context

It is obvious that Putin invaded the soverign country and he has violated many laws. but looking at the nature of his persnality and his way of polictics, he'll never stop the further inhumane activities! He is a kind of gangster so it is only police that can contain its violence.

Therefore, it is only world might that can stop him.

Actually, it is only the US that can do so or produce a ceacifire.

Posted in: For Asian American women, Olympics reveal a harsh duality See in context

i think there is a deep rooted issue that white mailes have a kind of superiority complex against Asian women.

But in a neutral view, both sides are responsible about that, as many of Asian women tend to think higly of westernized ways, especially maile Caucasian people as a symbol of that. They should change the way of thought otherwise they tend to be treated slavely by white males.

Posted in: COVID-19 entry ban could deter interest in Japan: UK scholars See in context

i think this argument is true, it would have a negative impact on future Japan.

But we have an imminent problem particular to Japan's inaduate measures to counter Omiron in terms of lack of PCR tests and low innoculatiton rate of booster shots for the eldery.

Please understand it!

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 foreign entry ban spurs demonstrations in several countries See in context

Please undestand that Japan is not ready to accept foreign people as the booster shots have not been gotten by the elderly people who are likely to develope to a serious stage or death. the shot rate is the worst with just only 1.5%. This is because of Japanese government's faulty judgement on when to start the booster to the eldery. it is not because of shortage of vaccination!

the minister in charge of vaccination lacks in capability to understand the medical situations and people's concerns, she is just coming from political dynasity family . she is a really miscasted.

Unless these things are resolved, we are not ready to accommodate foreigners.

In Japan we cannot accept the society in which the eldery and people with commonability die one and another due to the infection.

so, the inconvieniences for foreign people have been coming from our government failure.

Posted in: Russia says it will take nothing less than NATO expansion ban See in context

i think NATO and the west should review on how they have been appropriate in dealing with Russia since the fall of Berlin wall.

they should make efforts to incorporate Russia into Nato and the west group with a kind approach to Russia. i think Russia had the will of cooperating with the west at that time, but the west didn't response to that.

If they had a more lenient approach to Russia, it would have changed the behavior to the west today.

It is nealy ineffectuall for Mr. Golby's breakthough!

i think the west should be conciled and is resposible for this situation not just claiming Russia as dictorial country and eivil.

Posted in: Japan must co-exist with virus while achieving growth, says minister See in context

This minister is not fit for the financial or economic or management professional as he has no real experience or experise in these areas.

But he seems to pose as a powerful guy and to be bullish.

But just a minute, he should review the vaccine policy his government has been adoptting.

it is obvious that the government delayed the annoucemnet for the targer of priority for vaccination despite enough stockpile of vaccination in Japan.

it is too late for the elderly people aged 65 or older who are supposed to drastically reduce their antibody againt covid-19 including delta variant.

Posted in: Turning English learning on its head See in context

I have a big concern on an boom to learn English conversation in Japan. People began to tink that

English is a weapon that gets us through the battlefields of life and if more Japanese spoke English , it could change the way Japan work and thinks. People teaching English stress this argument and Native English speakers tend to be overvalued dispite of the lack of professional or knowledge.

Speaking fluency dose't indicate professionals in many cases. Many foreign people especially from America or England come to Japan and try to teach their language to us just because thery can speak Engish without enough qualification of teaching for non-native English speakers.

this boom could lead to the conclusion that speaking Engish fulency is the gage of quality of Japanese and it could form superior sense to people who don't speak English fuenctly.

I don't want to live a life in Japan looking up native English people as superior human-being.

At this moment, what we can do is just banning the US soldiers from going out from the base. That is the minimal request to the US. it is ourage to me that I saw a UD soldier driving overdrunk, causing a an accident!!

They look down on Okinawa people.

Posted in: UK data suggests hospitalization is less likely with Omicron See in context

The signs that Omicron may cause less severe disease than Delta also align with lab data suggesting Omicron does not grow as well in cells derived from lungs, Li said.

Yes, I want to believe in it, that is a relief to us in Japan. Howver, the elderly people's antibody amout is rapidly decresing and remains very low but they have to wait until next Feb. for a booster shot. So, compared to UK with high rate of booster shots, the augument the above can be applied to Japan? I don't thik so. Japan's Government should start a booster as early as possible because it has a stock of enough amout of vacination for the elderly. Why not!

i was surprised to see the words of Abe in the article. It is true, but no Japanse daily or major broadcast refer to his name in relation to the suicide case. In English paper, it is much better and reasonable and straightfoward.

Posted in: Japan reverses halt of inbound flight bookings after criticism See in context

KIshida sann should not have changed the first measure. we know japan has still now a weak and not effective quantine system, so it was a better option to stop all people from foreign countries for a while to lower the risk of briinging the omiron variant.

It is not the role of WHO to consider the economy or travel agency, it should focus on scietfict evidences and reserch or data on the health affairs. it should not be influenced by politics or others. It is WB or IMF and other international agencies to consider the negative effects from travel ban or other strictive measures.

Posted in: Japan opposition leadership race begins with 4 hopefuls See in context

I used to be a support for LDP, however since Abe PM took office and did a kind of untidemocracy, violation of independence of juridiction and the constituation and the revision of an official document and etc, I departed from LDP. On the otherhand opp. camp seems to be weak and had not accuse LDP effectively and address those issues! Fisrt of all, the political family dynacity and its nepotizm goverment should be stopped, and also lawmakers' income including fringe benefis would amout to $1.0 million, which is so high compared to foreign countries, so it should be decreased to an averaged office workers' standard.

xenophobia?

it is a strange word to me. foreign researchers just are treated as others. they are not supposed to be favorably treated. if they think they are previleged people, which is a wrong idea or something else. if a japanese researcher enters the US, which requires vaccination manadate or other requirments. It shows each coountry has each requirement for quarantine.

Posted in: Japan's ruling coalition keeps majority with fewer seats See in context

Japanese election system is not fair! it is very favorble for the current ruling party. Basically this election campaign period was too short for general public to consider which party or canditate is good to us. However, LDP, the largest party was able to make the campaign much longer thatn oposition parties in the name of presidential election. In US the campaign is one year, in Philipines it more tha 6 months. The only two weeks' campaign period is not appropriate for dimocratic election, which just contributes to maintain current ruling canditate. We, Japanese voters shoud know this fact.

I am totally mad at the people or media that are always criticizing Mr. Komuro because of his mother's problems. They love each other and Ms. Maco san left the Imperial family. In addition to that, to be fair Mr. Komuro is very industrious and diligent and endurable and smart with the qualification of a legal expert. He is very suitable husband to our former princess Mako. Congratulations of their wedding from my deepest heart.

Japan isn't independent from the goernment as other countries including Korea or US. So, then government decided to accuse Gorn and the related executives for some political reason. I think there is too much discretion of interpreatation of the criminal law! Also, police's hearing is to be awful because suspects are forced to confess the guilty. That's a pitty.

Mr. Abe should step down from the power of the goverment. I guess that one of the strong reasons why he stick to the controling the next goverment is his threat that the next govermnet may start a reinvestigation into his MORIKAKE scandal. Its issue is a big and imortant agenda for the next national election.

Japan has a terrible history of aggression and offensive invasions. None of those killed abroad were protecting anything except colonial ambition.

It is not fair only taliking about Japan's colonaization. how about the western nations' long lasting colonaization?

Posted in: Japan seeks to remember its war dead as individuals in new memorials See in context

Hi everyone, i would like to let you know the very fact that most of the rank and file people had been against the war, but they could not help going to the battle fields as a soldeir. they were also victims of the war.

Abe and Takaichi, who are top rank Japanese politicians, still look supportive to this war. it is a scarry.

I believe that some military officials and some politician did begin the war just because of their benefits and fames in the name of national security and love-Japan sprits, which seem to a kind of same things as Abe and Takaichi are arguing today!!!
