Posted in: ANA plane makes steep dive over Shizuoka See in context

seem we have 2 clear options now:

on one hand you have pilots that enjoy up-skirt photos and letting female co-pilot sit in his seat during flight. on the other hand is a pilot confusing cockpit switches.

i don't want to see a 'drink & drive' type of pilot in the future.

@ebisen

stress from the needs to see their female colleagues maybe. profession doesn't cure sexual problem. weird thing is they still resort to the cheap style.

@some14some

so they may be interested in 'ANA?'

just don't have them work with JR

mike,

the next time you wanna have conversation with any japanese lady, please just do so her unless she start speaking in any third language- other than japanese or english. that would be fairer. friendship is not the same as business. its not quite proper to ask somebody to sign a friendship Memorandum of Understanding / Agreement restricting them to speak only in one language.

@Asagao his application was made by Thai gov. stated in the 1st para.

after years of turmoil in Thailand, it seems that the winner is taksin's group. either he is TOO right or TOO wrong but it said something about his real capability.

of cause weakening of dollar is disadvantage to the debt payment. but it really help exporters to compete at global level yada yada.. so i think there is also a point there. of course US can't find single solution for all the problems but seems like US decided on it.

i think anybody could easily recall the time when US fiercely attempted to pull up under-valued chinese yuan. yes, chinese are stubborn, so no. what happen next for US? dollar falls. the big picture.

for whoever dislike my comment, FYI I did it rationally.

"Until the U.S. reins in its trade and budget deficits, there's no reason to believe that the dollar will strengthen significantly." Roger Ibbotson, Ph.D. Professor of finance at the Yale School of Management

for those backing obama, it is just a plain track record that he wouldn't do any radical measure to reverse the effect. or maybe he isn't capable to do it.

of course it started years before obama (nobody said it started yesterday) but obama wouldn't resolve it.

So it took them ten years to refurbish a carrier? How long wiil it take to build four new ones and how effective will they be?

do you want to under estimate China or you really don't know their nature of foreign policy - 'only announce anything when we are fully prepared'. prove- even when their hackers already infiltrated almost every important resource they didn't own it cause they are still unprepared for backlash.

How can Japan or China sell anything to the US?

the article mentioned that they don't have other choice. current monetary system means if USD falls, they will fall as well.

anybody hoping for stronger dollar in a near future is an obvious day-dreamer. not during obama's day.

I feel upset myself even though I'm not a Japanese.

smithinjapan

The best they can do is put these men's names on lists and warn them that if caught again they can face charges

As if China don't have enough citizen to be sent here that they need single person to go twice. BTW, Japan couldn't afford to risk their people currently living in China. If the crews are not released, retaliation could be under way. Maybe the relation is not plan by C-government but we've seen how they allow it to take place before. What we are facing now is a new nature of foreign policy - 'think ourselves first' and 'we always right'.

Posted in: Philippine president meets Muslim rebel chief secretly in Tokyo See in context

The meeting was not a secret for Philippine's gov as they have a team attended the meeting. Even the Japanese Foreign Minister knew about it. Jtoday should amend the title unless Jtoday could prove Moro Islamic Liberation Front didn't know their chief attended the meeting. Labeling it as 'secret meeting' is undermining the peace effort between both parties.
