Posted in: Ghosn determined to restore his reputation See in context

If Ghosn wants to restore his reputation, he should come back to Japan and fight like a man and clear his name in court.

Posted in: Japan adopts plan to push clean energy, nuclear to cut carbon emissions See in context

The government’s carbon reduction targets will never be met. Renewable sources of energy are a poor substitute for conventional means of power generation. Trees and plants take in carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen in the process of photosynthesis. Cutting down forests to install solar panels will only increase CO2 in the atmosphere.

Russians never stop cheating: from the head of the state to Olympic athletes.

Posted in: Ex-U.S. envoy Hagerty slams Japan's justice system over Nissan case See in context

In Japan all men and women are equal under the law. Kelly is going through what other Japanese criminal suspects are going through. And if “American executives will start thinking twice about doing business in Japan ,” that’s just as well. Good riddance for vultures.

Posted in: LDP, opposition clash over economy, COVID in election campaign See in context

If Kishida really believes “spending will bring economic growth”, then he should abolish or at least lower the rate of the consumption tax, a penalty on spending,

Or maybe they belonged to a cult that sees suicide as a kind of salvation.

Let’s have a joint naval exercise in the international waters just off Vladivostok.

Posted in: Japan to begin trials of COVID-19 vaccination proof at eateries See in context

A step towards a fascist state where people have a severely limited freedom of movement. The governments are ignoring the obvious fact that the vaccines aren’t 100% effective in preventing infection.

It’s amazing that the engaged couple haven’t seen each other for a full three years.

Posted in: 19-year-old suspect in murder of sex worker at hotel to be sent to family court See in context

The case would have been sent to a family court if the victim hadn’t been a sex worker. It’s completely irrelevant. Psychos like this are too dangerous to walk the streets again. They should be kept away from society for life.

“rambling incoherently”

Maybe the guy was on some kind of drug when he stabbed the victims, I’m sure his lawyer will pursue an insanity defense.

Looks like Japan has achieved a collective immunity.

Posted in: Japan may exempt Australian troops in joint drills from death penalty See in context

The Australian troops have always had problems with discipline. I hope they won’t think the new pact will give them a license to kill.

Posted in: Japan secures 120 mil extra Pfizer vaccine doses for next year See in context

The pharmaceutical companies won’t be able to catch up with and develop truly effective vaccines against ever-mutating strains of the virus. And no one seems to know or care how much the government is paying those big pharmas to secure vaccines.

Posted in: Kishida pledges large economic stimulus as by-election campaigns start See in context

@klausdorth

”And who is gonna pay for all this”

Don’t worry. The new PM’s. large-scale economic package will be all financed by issuing government bonds. Not a bit of your tax money will be used.

Posted in: Japanese businesses to offer benefits using vaccination app See in context

Bad idea. More and more fully vaccinated people are getting infected throughout the world. The new app will only encourage infected vaccine recipients to move around and infect healthy unvaccinated people.

Let’s hope “Distance makes the heart grow fonder “ applies to Kishida and his wife .

Posted in: Japan bids to host 2025 world athletics championships See in context

The people at the Athletics Federation must be all muscles no brain types. After wasting billions of yen for the Olympics, they are hoping to host another international sports event. Doesn’t anyone ever learn?

Posted in: Rock and roar: Iwate region's riff warns of bear attacks See in context

Japan’s policy of cutting down broadleaf forests and replacing them with fast-growing softwoods like cedar and cypress is partly to blame for the increasing number of bear attacks. Since bears can’t live in softwood forests, they come down to towns in search of food.

Posted in: Kishida's longevity as PM hinges on November general election See in context

The fact that rank and file LDP members supported Kono, as well as his popularity in opinion polls, shows how easily people can be manipulated by media propaganda. Proof that a country’s leader should never be chosen by direct vote.

@Pukey2

”Great, yet another PM which the country didn’t elect “

The poster doesn’t know how parliamentary democracy works. If he did, he wouldn’t have made such a ludicrous comment.

I’d been hoping that the Koreans would one day come to their senses but they didn’t. Now it’s time for Japan to retaliate by seizing Korean assets here.

Posted in: Gov't to shorten quarantine period for vaccinated travelers See in context

There’s no point in easing the quarantine rules when the fully vaccinated are getting infected and are in need of booster shots.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 154 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,147 See in context

The recent surge and subsequent sharp decline in infection only means that the virus has become no more dangerous than a common flu, it’s about time they stopped jabbing healthy people.

Posted in: PM hopefuls rally local support with focus on tourism, agriculture See in context

Agriculture doesn’t need to look to the world. Instead, the government should increase the food self- sufficiency rate. In the event of drastic climate change and global crop failures, the first priority of any country would be feeding its people and not exporting food to other countries.

Posted in: Japan's universities tightening background checks on foreign students See in context

It’s appalling that 40% of the foreign students studying in Japan are from China, the country that constantly violates Japanese waters and airspace. Japan hasn’t paid much attention to national security since 1945. The country’s insular mentality is partly to blame for this.
