Posted in: Japan scrambles jets to intercept plane believed to be Russian See in context

"And no, it's not the same as what happen during the Iran-Iraq War."

I beg to differ, but is was positively the same. The Russians believed KAL007 was an RC-135 reconnaissance plane. It was a case of mistaken identity combined with cold-war jitters. The Americans mistook an Iranian Airbus A300 as an Iranian F4 Phantom AND US ship Vincennes that shot it down was in Iranian waters at the time. Seriously smh at the white-washing of US history

Posted in: Japan announces changes to refugee system See in context

"We will offer you a unique welcome. In Japanese, I can describe it in one unique word: 'omotenashi'. It means a spirit of selfless hospitality, one that dates back to our ancestors, yet is ingrained in Japan's ultra-modern culture. 'Omotenashi' explains why Japanese people take care of each other... and our guests... so well."

You know full well that there's two sides to 'omotenashi'...there's the outer you (kind, respectful, open to strangers) and there is the inner you (gaijin are inferior, wish they would go back where they came from). Unfortunately, Japanese people never talk about the latter to anyone but other Japanese.

I don't understand why people in the Comments are whining about criminals complaining about prison conditions. It was a survey...they were asked the question...what would you have them answer...'Everything is peaches and cream'?

I grew up in Canada in late 80s and early 90s...I walked to school, but as a group with my older sister and friends. Any one who would let a younger child walk to school alone, even here in Japan, is crazy.

"Fair enough. But in turn, he should rename the White House to the McKinley House to pay respect to the rich who have been buying the presidency ever since McKinley."

No, he should rename it 'The Black House' in honour of the millions of African slaves who built America...

Posted in: George W Bush visits New Orleans disaster zone, 10 years after Katrina See in context

"Bush avoided parts of New Orleans that have yet to recover from the devastating storm, such as the Lower 9th Ward, where President Barack Obama mingled with hundreds of residents the day before. Bush did not tour the federally managed levees whose failures flooded 80 percent of the city.

Instead, he visited a school rebuilt with support from former first lady Laura Bush’s foundation, then flew to Gulfport, Mississippi, honoring police and firefighters who saved lives after Katrina’s towering storm surge swamped the coast."

Bush Jr is a totally despicable human being. Let me guess, it must have been a black or white issue for good Ol'Lil'Bush.
