@ Ex_Res

Cheap, nasty, and stupid..

In court papers, lawyers for Ghosn said that since Nissan had entered the apartment after his arrest, the automaker could have "inserted objects or documents that could compromise his good reputation".

There are no parts of a tree that can be thrown away. 

All parts of a tree can be thrown away. Who translated that? Or was Kobayashi trying to speak English? How about "No parts of a tree should be thrown away."

Posted in: Japan seeks 1st aircraft carrier to deploy stealth fighters See in context

@Matt Hartwell

Now get the stealth fighters out, so now Japan is not only on its own, it also has outdated 4th generation aircraft only, no aircraft carrier, so now its going to rely solely on aircraft taking off from runways in Japan and ships to defeat an invader.

Everything you just said achieves the exact opposite of the first part of the paragraph - a strong defensive military. Relying on 4th generation aircraft from the few airstrips in Japan and a navy to defeat an invader that can project air power via carriers and superior air power at that combined with what is likely to be superior ship numbers means the game is over before it even started.

1) Japan is not 'alone' if Japan has allies. The US military does not need to be in Japan to be an ally. 2) Updating Japan's airforce does not necessarily mean they need STEALTH fighters. 3) If every country had an Article 9 and didn't have war material such as aircraft carriers, Japan wouldn't have to worry about attacks from foreign aircraft carriers.

Posted in: Japan seeks 1st aircraft carrier to deploy stealth fighters See in context

All countries should have a strong defensive military, that stays within their borders AND an Article 9 (renouncing using war as a way to settle disputes). Get the US out of Japan. No country needs to have bases in another country. Japan does NOT need stealth fighters or an aircraft carrier for defense, and it isn't a sign of weakness if Japan decides to not purchase such war material.

Stealth fighters for DEFENSE, right? Lol You only need stealth fighters if you are flying over territory that is not yours, Japan. Passed up the unarmed spy planes, huh? Why do you need armed stealth fighters? Change the Constitution to allow Japan to attack other countries. Go ahead. Most young Japanese are not patriotic, and not interested joining the military. Oh! But you've made it easier for foreigners to work in Japan. What's next, allow them in the Japanese military? Promise them citizenship if they join? I see where this is going.

All nations should have their own strong militaries AND an Article 9. Ban war. Military is only for defense, just like a gun in a nightstand ready to help you defend yourself. Furthermore, if the US can have bases in Japan, let Japan have bases in the US. How about a Honolulu Japanese Naval base?

Even if I bought the lame excuse about skirts aiding concentration (only an expert pervert would come up with that 'logic'), how about asking the girls "could you concentrate better if you wore tights?" Assuming all people concentrate better not wearing certain clothes is simple-minded, and assuming clothes only affect girls' concentration is sexist.

Posted in: Diet passes bill to accept more foreign workers See in context

But opposition parties have criticized the bill for failing to specify the types of jobs the foreign workers would engage in and for giving the government too much freedom to decide details later through ministerial ordinances.

So, the new workers could join the SDF, which is having a hard time finding and keeping recruits. These foreign workers WILL be used against the Japanese people eventually.
