Posted in: Woman, 3 minors arrested after girl's body found in apartment See in context

The cops had been called several times and went away because no one was home?

So that's how you avoid arrest in Japan... just act like you're not home.

Posted in: Woman found strangled to death in Kanazawa hotel room See in context

Why was she "fully clothed" in bed?

And it can't have been cleaners who found her, since they don;t come into a room where there are still people, and it says the other woman was still in the room. It;'s all rather odd.

Posted in: Australian tycoon to sue Murdoch; claims his wife 'Chinese spy' See in context

This fat idiot is clearly a charlatan. BUT.... what he says about Murdoch's malevolent influence is correct.

As for Wendy Deng, there is a chance that that allegation is true too.

They just assume that it was not reported. They don't know at all... Just blabbing.

I wonder if the bikes they rode had any lights. Hard to see some cyclists.

Posted in: Japan voices irritation at Ban's comments See in context

Amazing. The same Korean U.N. Secretary General has never even once criticized China for its white-washing of history.

And how much criticism has he leveled against North Korea, which completely denies its own sordid history?

Posted in: Australian PM Rudd hires Obama strategists to help him get re-elected See in context

"“I’ve always been a strong supporter of President Obama, both in his leadership in the world, also his message to the American people..."

**What message to the American people?

It sounds like Rudd doesn;t even follow US politics. **

Posted in: CIA secretly providing training for Syrian rebels: LA Times See in context

"The US has achieved precisely nothing with its covert and overt attacks and "wars" in the Middle East."

Totally agree. The U.S. really needs to butt out. Gee, it was only 25 years ago that the US was training and providing weapons to the rebels in Afghanistan. One of those rebels was called Osama bin Laden. And we all know how that turned out.....

What a silly bastard. Why not just set up the house renovation company in the first place and not join the Yakuza at all?

Haruki Suzuki .. what a name.

In most countries, suspects' names are not disclosed until a conviction has been achieved.

Strange details. The baby was diagnosed with brain damage in early March, but the father wasn't charged until the end of May?

Posted in: Defiant Hashimoto says U.S. troops abused women during occupation See in context

Actually, Hashimoto is right. Incidents of rape in Japan were particularly egregious during the spring of 1946. In Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of WWII, John Dower says that “the number of rapes and assaults on Japanese women were around 40 per day... and then rose to an average of 330 a day in early 1946.” on April 4, fifty GIs broke into a hospital in Omori prefecture and raped 77 women, including a woman who had just given birth, killing the two-day-old baby by tossing it onto the floor. And on April 11, forty US soldiers cut off the phone lines of one of Nagoya’s city blocks and entered a number of houses simultaneously, “raping many girls and women between the ages of 10 and 55 years.”

Research it if you don't believe me,,,

Japanese women are surely a bit LESS catty than Western women, aren't they?

That's my impression anyway....

Posted in: China defends massive growth in military spending See in context

China sells weapons to anyone. When Hezbullah attacked Israel in 2006, it used Chinese missiles. Iran and other Muslim insurgent groups rely on Chinese weapons too. When Beijing says that its military spending has contributed to global peace and stability, that is a total farce.

If anyone believes that Islam is a "religion of peace", the truth should be clear. What a hideous, barbaric culture.
