It is impossible to prevent large cities with their populations from going out.

Quarantining a village or very small town yes but millions of people no.

Uh, New York? Milan? Wuhan? Madrid?

Seems it is possible.

Yes, India with more than a billion population is currently under 3 week lock down, definitely possible.

Posted in: What if the United States had not used atomic weapons? See in context

Well the Japanese imperial army leadership owed there allegiance to the emperor, all the US had to was to either kidnap and take the emperor as PoW or take him out, and that would have ended the war right there, as the only option for the imperial army leadership would have been than to either surrender or commit seppuku.

Would that include Thomas Mair, the right-wing fanatic who murdered MP Jo Cox, and the right-wing fanatic Darren Osborne who murdered a Muslim grandfather outside a Finsbury Park mosque? Or does your fantastic plan only apply to Muslims?

This should apply to any fanatic, jihadi, right-wing, warmonger etc..

Banning the trade in wild animals is a good first step, and encouraging people to not eat them is even better. But why temporary?

Yeah, this finally forced folks to switch to vegetarian diet, veggies are fast disappearing or simply not available in the affected areas.

Posted in: Ghosn's aide Kelly stands high chance of acquittal: ex-prosecutor See in context

"Saving face" probably plays more into the MOJ decisions that the Japanese public tolerates. They shouldn't -- saving face is not reality or the truth.

Well the prosecutors have no interest in finding the truth, If they did than they would have realized how they have been used by the French and Nissan. At this point it is all about saving face, In all probability they will cut a deal with Kelly and let him go, will Kelly play along or not is the question.

The Windows Embedded POSReady was the last OS based on the Windows XP SP3, the support for this ended on April 9 2019, assuming the check-in terminal was running this OS or even Windows XP SP3 (support ended Jan 2016), than not that ancient.

Posted in: Ghosn used company money for private events: Nissan report See in context

why can't some people admit that ghosn isn't exactly totally innocent here? he did do some shady things. did it rise to the level of imprisonment? no, but that doesn't mean he should rise to the level of martyr, either.

You don't get it do you, the public prosecutors have made him a martyr.. and ghosn is going to milk every bit of it...

Posted in: Ghosn seeks retirement benefit from Renault See in context

 I am astonished to see that the majority of the comments support the fugitive crook. I am sad to see that the moral values changed negatively in today's world.

The crook is this medieval justice system, the moral values have expanded positively and as such the world can see who is the real crook.

And the only candidate (Tulsi G) who can fight Trump is kept out of the debate, great, as long they do this Trump will cruise easily. Just like last time, Trump is counting on the the Dems to keep the real candidate out of the nomination/debate.

Posted in: Ghosn seeks retirement benefit from Renault See in context

Think the actual fight is between French government-Renualt and Ghosn, It was the french government which was pushing for a full merger, which would have allowed them more control of the merged companies, and Ghosn knowing that Nissan would fiercely oppose, proposed a holding company which would have allowed Nissan and Renault to operate as separate companies, wonder if the public prosecutors realize who was actually pushing for the merger.

How many Iranians is Soleimani responsible for killing now? 32 squashed during his funeral march and 82 more, now we just need to count all those killed by the terrorist organization he helped too

Well Soleimani with the help of Russians was responsible for eliminating ISIS..and was aligning Iraq closer to Iran, think he was probably eliminated for the later.

Posted in: Seeking justice: The legal risks facing Ghosn See in context

If the Japanese are serious about Ghosn, their only chance now is to have a bounty out for Ghosn and his helpers..

Well if they were to do so, they will cement their reputation as a mafia gangster legal system, do you have any idea what you are saying..

There is only one way for them to save face and show case to the world that they are not foreigner biased, and that would be to arrest Saikawa, Toyoda, Kawaguchi and give them the same treatment as Ghosn, that is the only way establish some credibility..

They kill our people. They blow up our people. And then we have to be very gentle with their cultural institutions?”

Classic subterfuge, when has Iran killed and blown up Americans on US soil? Now if Iran had military based in Mexico and Canada, than those could be fair play for a retaliation of a retaliation.

Posted in: Turkey detains 7, including 4 pilots over Ghosn's escape through Istanbul See in context

He had an opportunity to expose any unfairness in court that would have been watched by the world..

And why do you think he was detained for 100 days and than the bail with those ridiculous conditions, he was never going to be allowed to expose anything, and why do you think the trial did not start even after 1 year, the prosecutors had everything before his arrest, so the trial should have started within 1-2 month of his arrest.

He also doesn't appear to care about the integrity of fellows Lebanese either.

Yeah right, talk about the integrity of the Nissan execs and the public prosecutor office.

Only when they reach a certain age. You can't explain verbally to a 6 month child that biting is bad

Guess you have no idea on how to raise a child, If nursing is proper than there should not be any biting, If the child is biting than there are many ways to subtly coach the child to not to bite, and screaming, threat of violence is a definite no no.

Posted in: Ghosn's escape leaves Japan red-faced See in context

He was happy enough to be subjected to the same justice system for 2 decades, the only thing that has changed is he has now been caught out.

A rat and pathological liar hiding in a box to escape justice says it all.

His lawyer should now face charges too, he was instrumental in the bail application. Throw him in the clinker in place of his client is what he deserve

And when was he subjected to this justice system prior to the all but illegal arrest, this direct face-to-face interaction happened only when he was arrested. By rats and pathological liars I assume you are referring to Saikawa and co, his lawyer will not face any charges, don't you understand your unique legal system.

Well a subset of labor voting electorate switched to conservative due to labor's radical left leanings, especially mass immigration policy, the idea of creating a vote back out of these immigrants did not work out as expected, as this election show cased a flashback by the locals.

There's nothing democratic about first past the post elections when a candidate can win with less than 51% of the votes

Well's that's how democratic elections work in every democratic country, the candidate with the highest number of votes win, and the party or coalition  with 51% or more seats forms the government.
