Posted in: Japan to spend more on defense, refit 1st aircraft carrier See in context

I strongly assume there are better ways to spend at least some of that money.

Slash the purchases let's say by 50% (to satisfy those who want to see a military hardware upgrade).

At the same time distribute the other 50% where it really makes sense and is needed!

"...... North Korea's economy has "wonderful potential" ........"

So, is he (Trump of course) trying to invest in some major construction projects over there?

Maybe another wall, maybe another hotel or Trump Tower?

Or how about a golf course? A second Mar-el ...... what ever?

Too much talking, not enough action.

Protectionism, obstructionism and any other "-ism" in that sense does not help.

Posted in: Japan treats its foreign workers like Kleenex. They have a use-it, toss-it mentality. See in context

He is right!

Working the same job but being treated differently than your Japanese co-workers isn't really a positive image or sign. And quite a few of us working for Japanese companies or in the education sector .... one year renewable contract is the best we can expect, even after many years of employment.

Posted in: Court rejects Ghosn's appeal to end detention See in context

Once again: what a shame, what a disgrace!

Either let him go on bail or start a trial, if you have prove and evidence.

But I strongly assume there is almost nothing that can justify him being in prison for such a long time (detention center???)

Posted in: Japan seeks 1st aircraft carrier to deploy stealth fighters See in context

Wasn't that said before already (at least I did in a previous post).

They are getting their aircraft carrier ...... which in the sense of defense makes no sense.

Aircraft carriers are designed to operate in areas far away from their homebase.

So, what in the hell are "they" thinking? What are "their" plans?

"Like the fact that you guys need to find a suitable candidate for 2024 if that candidate exists at al...."

@bass4funk It looks like you are a little confused or not very familiar with the calendar.

The next election will be (latest!!) in 2020, but maybe that's fake facts, eh news, I mean?

Worried about Trump's re-election?

They should be worried about much more than this!

As "smithinjapan" already said: "the clock is ticking".

It's one minute to twelve, according to the "doomsday clock".

Posted in: 23 years sought for man over fatal road rage accident See in context

Hope he will get more than 30 years.

He definitely deserves that.

But even this sentence will not bring back those who were killed because of his act.

Not just me, but also others said this from the beginning:

Like some other politicians: they don't know what they are talking about. They don't know what they're doing.

Come up with something better, something that benefits those who need it, not those who got it made already!

Just like in the good old days: inquisition.

It should be innocent until proven guilty.

But that's not how the Japanese (un-)justice system works, of course.

"NO SURRENDER", Mr. Ghosn!

As always, 1 month salary cut to show "remorse", bow and that's the end of the story!

Wish Ghosn could do the same!!

Who, Sir? Me, Sir? No, Sir, not me Sir!

That's probably (and most definitely) the answer Trump gave.

But maybe then again, this whole thing (Russia collusion) is just fake.

He is standing high above everything, since he is the POTUS and thinks he can do what ever he wants to do.

And if something goes wrong, blame it on others (waiting for the time he's gonna get rid of Kushner, D.T.jr. and others in his "inner circle)!
