And Japanese never blame their Imperial Army or their Emperor for not stopping the war. For starting the war for that matter. They were losing and were warned to surrender but chose not to. Hence the bombings. They brought it upon themselves. But they always blame the US only.

An Indonesian friend of mine went to the said memorial. He was dismayed that it was so one sided, that they only paint themselves (Japanese) as the victim and forget that they were the aggressor.

Can't Nissan just buy out Renault? Do they really want to be a part of a team of losers??

Posted in: Ghosn leaves detention center; agrees to limit contact with wife See in context

If Ghosn is being treated so unjustly and his rights are being violated like you guys say, then where is Macron?? Why won't he come to the aid of his countryman unjustly accused and illegally and inhumanely detained??

Where is the outpouring of sympathy and display of anger from his countrymen and women for his ordeal??? He can rot to hell for all they care and that says it all. He is a crook and they know it. When will you guys wake up?

Of course, bail is just a 'guarantee' that you will not flee and come back to stand trial. When you return, they will return the money to you. Geez guys

She may be criss crossing the world but, I don't think she and husband will get much sympathy. She should try coming here to JT comments section tho.

The fact that even his own government, French, won't do anything for him, even with his cry of failing health, says it all. Don't need to wait for trial, they hanged him already in a sense.

What are these words 'rebate' and 'refund' bandied about above mean? Also, what is this 'employee pension'? Is that pension from your employer, or is it the kosei nenkin? Please enlighten a non expat on some of these terms. Thanks.

Well let's see if the French government will do anything for Ghosn this time. If they continue to forsake him, you know pretty much he's faking it.

Posted in: Ghosn not getting much help from France, analysts say See in context

But to get back to my point, the French government should, be coming to Ghosn's aid. The fact that they don't, says something.

Posted in: Ghosn not getting much help from France, analysts say See in context

Just to correct that, the French government owns only 15% of Renault's shares.

On the news, they kept saying French government is the majority owner of Renault group. Don't know what percentage, but even 15% can be majority if indeed, that is the largest share held by one entity.

@LB315; I would like to clarify your comment.

For those of us living here;

a. We must agree with the judicial process and cannot disagree, and?

b. We must respect the judicial process and cannot show a lack of respect by disagreeing?

It is a point well worth debating.

Is this correct?

You can disagree with their system or any system, no problem there. But there are too many posts on JT trying to shove western ways down Japanese throat. Maybe not you, but way too many are like, Western way is the right way and the only way. I'm sick of that mentality.

Posted in: Ghosn not getting much help from France, analysts say See in context

Why should he be getting any help - just because he's a rich business leader? Are all the other foreigners detained being given help - think not.

If he's the CEO of the company you own (Renault, a French government majority owned company), why wouldn't they help him???

@Tokyo-Engr, I appreciate your respectful response.

The West cannot just force its ways and values upon the rest of the world. The West does not own the world, it belongs to everyone, whether you like the ways of others or not.

Few tears have shed for him in France. Contrast that with all the tears cried for him by his supporters here on JT.

I was expecting him to come out swinging like Brett Kavanaugh did at his hearing, which is how an innocent man accused would act, I feel. this didn't persuade me.

Posted in: France respects Japan's judicial procedures regarding Ghosn: Le Drian See in context

He's got two countries going after him, one of which is his own country forsaking him. That should say something, some people here. And that country is the majority shareholder of the company he headed no less.

Posted in: What happens to residents when an old age home goes bankrupt? See in context

Assisted living and nursing homes are different facilities. Assisted living is when you're still independent, can still walk, whether you need a cane or a walker or what. When you can no longer walk and are in a wheelchair or bedridden, basically on your last leg, they move you to a nursing home. They told me straight, everybody there is paid by Medicare. Of course I don't know first hand how it is in other areas or states, but I would think they're all the same.

In America, Medicare/Medicaid (government programs) pay for just about everybody in a nursing home.

Well it's not just the Japanese prosecutors, it's the French prosecutors, too. It looks like JT kind of switched the article on us. I swear, the first time I read this page, it was a longer article that talked about the French prosecutors going after Ghosn more.
