Christopher Bauer's asked
"why is the English translation of the criminal's words written as "I'm gonna kill you," instead of "I'm going to kill you?" Is there some idiomatic Japanese that the reporter wished to convey in English?"
My reply ' Yes, I believe there is' The criminal most probably shouted an informal slang similar to " 殺すぞ " which roughly translates into "gonna kill ya"

... superiors told her to "go die"
Reminds me of the infamous: Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso has provoked anger after suggesting it would be better if elderly citizens hurried up and died lest they act as a drain on the budget.

Women "above age 30 are useless," sounds vaguely familiar.
Anybody remembers Ishihara's famous words "old women who live after they have lost their reproductive function are useless and are committing a sin," ???

Thanks Abe. Thanks Japan. Egypt's President El Sisi is the best thing that ever happened to Egypt since the 1967 war with Israel. He is a role model for all leaders of the Muslim, Arab, African and developing countries. Since the second revolution of June 30, 2013, he had spared no effort in planting the seeds of sustained development while uprooting the evil of terrorism. He made history as the savior of Egypt from the tragic fate of some of its neighbors. Egypt, the Arab world, Africa and the developing countries will be forever indebted to him.

The US should be too ashamed to criticize Russia for its intervention in Syria after war criminal Bush invaded Iraq on false pretexts, killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, caused the displacement of millions and destroyed the country's unity making it easy prey for the head-chopping savages IS. France should also be ashamed of itself for removing Libya's Gadhafy and leaving the country in lawless shambles in the hands of terrorist militants and civil war. The destruction of these two countries at the hands of democracy and freedom-loving US and France just goes to show they may be 'might' but definitely not 'right'.
