Japan should totally boycott Russia, I guess I will get lots of down-votes, even other sensible comments are down-voted, the Japan today must be read by Russian supporters!

Posted in: Ukraine accuses Russia of massacre; city strewn with bodies See in context

Now is the time for Japan to stop being mealy mouthed and stop all trade with Russia, especially when you see the photo evidence of war crimes being committed by them.

Japan should cancel the joint venture of the Sakhalin lng plant. UK Shell canceled their 25% investment, Japan has just 11%. Time for action, not talking, having meetings, thinking about it, the usual stalling techniques Japan uses.

The article regarding Uniqlo has been withdrawn. Uniqlo continues to keep its outlets in Russia open. I will not buy any clothing from them in the future.

Posted in: Uniqlo defends decision to stay open in Russia See in context

I am totally horrified at Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and have decided to immediately boycott Uniqlo for deciding to continue keeping their outlets in Russia open. I guess they want to take finacial advantage as most clothes outlets from the West have already closed theirs in Russia.

One question still be asked, who initially provided the cash that was given to 35 people? Was it from the LDP, and was it originally public money?

Yes it is good news, i hope they are bankrupted, which causes a chain reaction in the Chinese construction industry. Hope another nail in the evel regime of the CCP.

Just as a rider. Don't buy Chinese products if possible, and don't watch the Beijing Winter Olympics.

A diplomatic boycott is nothing more than than a gesture, total total boycott diplomatically and the withdrawal of all athlas a protest at China's human rights, territorial encroachment.

Let's not forgot the deliberate spread of Covid-19 on the world resulting in over 5,000,000 deaths, and still counting.

My wife, who is a local thinks that the NHK end of year musical is a dirge, not watched by the young, only by a few old fxxts.

Surely NHK could think of something more appropriate and entertaining for the year end to suit all tastes!

Increasing the minimum wage would be the simplest solution, with no bureaucracy involved, and would ensure that all employees would get an increase.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 5,773 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 20,293 See in context

I am so pleased that both my wife and self had two vaccinations each of the Pfizer vaccine, but feel so concerned that want to urgently get their jabs. The silence from our dear leaders is very worrying as they have no real practical solutions to effectively combat this pandemic. They've had 18 months to formulate a what if worst case situation.......what has been planned? Nada, zilch, nothing. All we get is talking heads.

Present Japan's Suga government is very similar to wartime militarism Japan. They are overestimate themselves, underestimate "enemy", disrespect logistics, never admit failure, repeat sophistry, miss timing to give up, and increasing victims

It's all very well having doctors from overseas to help out, but what do you do when a person infected with Covid-19 needs intensive care in a hospital. Will beds be taken to the detriment of locals who are sure to be infected by holding the Olympucs whilst there is a pandemic.

Posted in: Japanese businesses expect RCEP deal to boost Asia trade, investment See in context

RCEP will prove mainly to China's advantage. China should be boycotted, especially as it has no remorse for destroying the peoples and economies of every country whether accidently or on purpose. Personally I now avoid where possible buying any Chinese products, but it seems that many Japanese companies are in the pockets of Chinese manufacturers and there are no alternative suppliers.

I cannot understand why Japan is having any discussions with the leader of a pariah state. Iran is formenting trouble in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq they should be ostracised. Trump is 100% correct to have sanctioned Iran because of their nuclear ambitions.
