Doesn't explain why equally colonized places are doing much better, including Latin America.

Totally different circumstances and background etc, slave trading to name one.

Yes she should face prosecution if there is probable cause to believe she deliberately covered things up etc.

However, even if so does that do anything to address the business environment which shaped and influenced her mindset and actions?

No doubt this chap is addicted to online pornography.

What’s the exact connection between online pornography addiction and exposing oneself?

The exact connection is what all the porn-addicted people here are loath to admit, and will therefore feverishly downvote any post which brings this up here.

Another day, another pervert in Japan.

Yes, yet another one.

Yet no one pauses to ask how this perverted mindset takes root and develops in Japanese young men.

Yakuza have a long established history of engaging in this type of theft.

They have the equipment to efficiently conduct the theft as well as the networks to sell.

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly having sex with minor at welfare facility where he works See in context

Rape is a prominent theme in Japanese porn and implants within Japanese men the desire to do so should the opportunity arise.

As much as various posters want to deny this we'll simply continue to see the daily onslaught of rape, molestation etc.

His mate was probably recording it from the bushes for his Insta.

That is exactly what they do, except they don't upload to Insta, they upload to porn sites, which inspires the next rash of attacks.

Posted in: U.S. ambassador to Japan says boosting arms industry ties is key to stronger security alliance See in context

Lots of comments that the US runs Japan when Japan has full autonomy to amend their Japanese written Article 9. 

The LDP has full autonomy to follow the US. They have never and will never contradict US policy, i.e. never side with Russia or Iran against the US.

Posted in: U.S. ambassador to Japan says boosting arms industry ties is key to stronger security alliance See in context

The use of Japanese weapons in a conflict is decided by the Japanese government/Diet, not the US. The new arrangement discussed by Kishida/Biden may lead to a joint command next year, but even if it does that's still not "ultimately lies with the US military's top chain of command."

If you really believe in an actual conflict that the US would allow the SDF to operate independently, then you are out to sea.

Regardless of any "official" agreements, the LDP and its SDF are creations of Macarthur and company and post-Macarthur US authorities, which is why the LDP has remained in power from 1955 until now, except for two brief intervals.

And the posters I was replying to were talking (I believe) about weapons sales anyway, not chain of command.

Again, the LDP and its weapons program has been carefully planned in conjunction with the US, these projects are always mutually beneficial financially / otherwise, so you can bet that the components etc used in Japanese weapons systems are tied into American defense industries. No way would the US allow the Japanese to build weapons that the US wouldn't be able to operate and profit on.

Oh Absolutely more weapons is the answer for a more peaceful, prosperous future with a clean intact ecosystem... just what president/former Army general Eisenhower talked about in his farewell address to the American people

In today's laboratory-developed strains of mary jane the tch levels are much higher and more potent than anything your parents or you in your high school days experienced- they can severely and radically affect your perception / nervous system if you inhale more deeply than Clinton did.

Combine that with alcohol, and you have an accident waiting to happen.

...The question is, did it happen that way? Now that he's gone we won't know for sure.

If he had of asked, I'm pretty sure the priests - or many others - would have fed him. Stealing is never the way - especially from the donations so many good people have made.

If you truly believe so I would invite you to roleplay this and find out if the shrine priests would really feed you.

the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Dodgers 6-5 on Saturday night after Shohei Ohtani popped up with the bases loaded for the final out.

Unfortunate debut in Dodger stadium and wasted Yamamoto's outstanding effort but we'll see how Shohei bounces back from this.
