Posted in: Trump to send more troops to Afghanistan as part of new strategy See in context

New strategy is the old strategy which was not working. Winston Churchill once said "you can count on the American to do the right thing after they have tried everything else".

The right strategy is to pull out of Afghanistan.

When Japanese companies make huge profit and not ready to increase wages this trend is not sustainable.

Posted in: S Korea starts review of 'comfort women' deal with Japan See in context

Clarify.... I'm frustrated more than anything.... have lived in and out of Japan for 35 years. Yes, Freedom of the Press without Censorship is important, but the emotional part of me is totally Sick of this issue being brought up continually. Especially since Japan has paid reparations and has apologized numerous times already. So my feeling is.... I'm sick of seeing this. Like an earlier poster mentioned.... this is Political Gold in S. Korea... just mention it and you get a few extra votes...

No true ... Japan did not apologize for this, the gov paid the money only.

Do the people attending A-bomb memorials form violent protests demanding countless payment after payment? Do they erect monuments in unrelated locations? Do they form special interest groups using surviving victims as pawns for political gain?

You are right you don't do what you have mentioned above however this is the Japanese way to remember & the Koreans has their on way. We should not deny that the Japanese gov did not handle these issues properly, some nations like Malaysia & Singapore decided to keep quiet about what the Japanese did during that time while china & Korea not.

Why the Japanese gov is too much consumed about removing the statue?

For American politicians the nation does not matter, they are interested in hitting at each other. Why they don't work on improving ACA? These days American politics has become like Arab politics, trying to prove they are dumb.

US$1 Billion is a lot of money & 40% of it will be spent on administrative work, this how UN works. Some Japanese NGO has better record than UN in improving life's in Africa & Indonesia.

Spending the money in Japan as some of you suggest is not possible politically, it means admitting that the system has failed then people will ask how come Japan with all its economic might has poverty.

Its an achievement we like it or not, even if the parts comes from US you still need a brain to assemble your copy, if its easy many countries has done it. We forget that Japan started with copying too. Its a smart move by China, why they should wait for the day that US government says you can't buy our planes unless you get us Kim Jong :)

I wouldn't get into a car made in China, much less a plane.

You are now using cars that has parts made in China. Even Boeing make parts for its planes in China and Boeing planes are painted in China.

Posted in: Netanyahu assails Iran nuclear talks in speech to Congress; Obama disagrees See in context

Mr. Netanyahu has failed so far to solve his political issues using military means and Hamas in Gaza is an example of his failure, so let us give negotiations a chance. Mr. Netanyahu saying "Iran can't be trusted" is foolish, there is no trust in politics. USA with al its power do not trust any nation.
