lol People still taking this story at face value.

The sources for the information in this article are government higher ups, and that's all you need to know.

As pointed out by a poster above this may very well be a ruse fabricated by the people in charge of sending the funds ... anyone who's dealt with people in city hall knows that level of error both regarding the money and failing to catch up the recipient in a more timely manner is highly unlikely.

If someone is "apprenhended" he'll likely be let off lightly eventually.

Posted in: Disney hasn't found itself in this much trouble since 1941 See in context

Disney teamed up with mafia in his attempt to avoid providing decent working conditions, then backlisted them as communists because they dared to stand up for themselves- I've seen this story played out in a number of places, and the US always adopts the role of Disney.

Posted in: Ukraine to hold first war crimes trial of captured Russian See in context

I'd like to see the Russian who ordered this whole invasion and attacks on civilians be tried as War Criminal.

Well then I guess no concern for what happened in Iraq, eh?- Which by the way is still a big mess.

People come out in force when the popular media narrative makes it safe for them, but are unable to face inconvenient facts when it doesn't match a pro-western narrative.

General LeMay also orchestrated the devastating bombing of North Korea during the Korean war, in which every town in North Korea was reduced to rubble, and citizens were routinely targeted with napalm as US pilots were instructed not to return with their payloads; he also gave the okay to bombing dams (contradicts the Geneva Convention and is considered a war crime), which then condemned millions to death from starvation as they were unable to irrigate their crops.

Posted in: UK lawmaker resigns after viewing porn in House of Commons See in context

The overwhelming majority of every man you know or meet watches porn.

Ah well okay your acquaintances.

Those who deny it the most are likely the biggest users.

You're basing this on...?

And again, as usual side-stepping the inconvenient facts that "lawmakers and staff say harassment and inappropriate behavior are still rampant under" and how porn is related to the relevant attitudes and actions.

It's alright, keep your head in the sand, along with your fellow porn addicts.

Posted in: UK lawmaker resigns after viewing porn in House of Commons See in context

Bob FosseMay 1  11:41 am JST

Porn is fine, but not at work.

As usual what is overlooked is the effect porn has on the behavior and attitudes of the people who watch it-

[ Long known for its boozy, macho culture, Parliament is now a more diverse place, with women holding almost 40% of the seats in the House of Commons. But lawmakers and staff say harassment and inappropriate behavior are still rampant under a system that largely allows members to police themselves. ]

Posted in: Japan sends envoy to Solomons amid worry over China pact See in context

US has the greatest number of military bases worldwide it's not even close, including a bunch which are in very close proximity to China, Russia, North Korea, etc.

The difference is that when the US builds another base, conducts military exercises or sells more missiles it's for "regional stability."

Isozaki added the removal request has been met and Japan's support for the Ukrainian people following the Russian invasion remains unchanged.

Everyone including the Ukranians know that LDP has no option but to support the Ukraine position as it is the US position, so drawing parallels between Hitler and the Showa Emperor can be made with impunity and gotten away with an apology.

Posted in: Japan's ruling party to propose more defense spending; 2% of GDP See in context

Japan has already amassed a considerable arsenal due to the yearly defense budget increases to record levels EVERY year Abe was in office, a trend which has continued with his proteges Suga and "I'm a dove who really cares about the people's welfare" Kishida...plus the numerous armaments the US is stacking on the bases....

Military industrial complex facts- more arms = more money for conservative elite, period.

Posted in: Kishida sends ritual offering to Yasukuni shrine; former PM Abe visits See in context

If anyone bothers to research what Abe's grandfather and his military buddies got up to both before and during the war, and then after the war after being reinstated to power by the US, they'd understand why it continues to cause such a furor, and would also have insight into why Abe et al have put such effort into revising history books...a small example is given in the comments of the comfort women article, which is probably why the comments have been disabled.

SK right-wing same as LDP supported by US and more poignantly they were restored to power a la Japanese war criminals by the US in the post war era...and prior to and during the war they were employed by the Japanese government.

Hence the abrupt about face.

Posted in: Japan considering high-level dialogue with S Korea See in context

It's mistaken to see the relationship as dictated by the things noted above.

It simply boils down to the fact that the US-dominated LDP cannot work with a SK administration that doesn't fully support the American agenda.

Now that Moon is out and a conservative (in SK as in Japan this means US-friendly) is in, the Japanese government will resume working more closely with SK, and this news story is simply prefacing this development (goes without saying that the Japanese public will for the most part go along with this shift).
