@Readyfortakeoff

Try looking around you at conditions in Japan and wonder why it is like this!

Posted in: Slim majority of Japanese oppose state funeral for ex-PM Shinzo Abe See in context

No!

Abe was mired in scandal and impropriety which has not been fully and properly addressed.

Abenomics was also a complete failure which made the majority of people in Japan poorer not richer!

So, a definite negative from me.

I want to add my opposition to the funeral too.

Would Pelosi really fly into Taiwan with a US Air Force escort?

Rub mud in the faces of the Chinese?

I would show restraint as I have never understood the bellicose sentiments that Americans possess.

There’s the funeral, the Covid debacle, the tax on food, ties to religious cults, increasing poverty, the hollowing out of Industry and the do as I say, not as I do mentality, inherent in most of these old men in Japan…

Lawyers say church caused suffering for Abe's alleged killer

It is pretty obvious that the mother must have been severely pressured and the son seeing this must have been in a severe state of angst.

It is also an issue that medical staff, especially nurses are amongst those being infected at a higher rate now.

And isn’t it the case that mainlanders coming down to Okinawa for holidays are spreading the virus?

What other explanation is there?

@Yubaru

Actually for about 265 years Japanese were banned from leaving.

Around the Edo period if I remember my Japanese history correctly…

Posted in: Japan's daily COVID cases hit new record, above 209,000 See in context

Maybe it is time for Japan to ban Japanese from leaving the country?

(It wouldn’t be the first time for that)

At present there is a highly contagious variant running amok and all those tourists leaving for the US,Europe and SE Asia etc are going to be spreading it.

This is the seventh record breaking wave of the virus at present.

With reference to the above, it is obvious that the vaccines are not effective at reducing infection

The complete lack of political foresight in Japan is remarkable…

Posted in: Japanese city alarmed by biting, clawing, attacking monkeys See in context

But more attacks were reported after the capture.

Now why would that be?

The animal was killed.

Oh yeh, killing one of the troupe is not going to produce peace now is it?

I would argue that these monkeys are as intelligent as a small child.

Even my cat understands several words of English and Japanese and will change his vocal tones to communicate and show different emotions.

There is bound to be a reason for these attacks.

Doesn’t Japan have any animal behaviorists?

Or is the solution just to kill everyone of them?
