if Americans commit crimes in Japan, they get their asses busted in japan, that is the way it should be by any reasonable standard

Nooooo ! Not american military ! Completely different realm ! If the US Military says fine you can prosecute him then maybe else no way Jose !

The relevant section is Article XVII 1(b) which states:

(a) the military authorities of the United States shall have the right to exercise within Japan all criminal and disciplinary jurisdiction conferred on them by the law of the United States over all persons subject to the military law of the United States;

So if you are a US soldier you are a subject to the military law of the US. So US is by no means is "obliged" to do anything according to this treaty

No way they see the inside of Fuchu. A Max 3 year sentence and/or a 300,000 Yen fine? Sentence will be suspended, Fine invoked, Deported upon payment/paperwork completion and banned for (x) years from re-entering Japan.

This makes more sense !

I mean think about it ? An ex special forces officer of the most powerful army in the world rotting in Japanese prison ?

in contrast the US is obliged to hand over US military personnel for prosecution to Japanese authorities when they have committed crimes punishable by Japanese law.

This really is mind blowing !

Is this some wording game ? "US military personnel" is that same as US military officer ? Have you got a link to some official document supporting this ? It really is unbelievable .

They committed the crime in Japan, so as with anyone else who commits a crime in Japan, Japanese law applies to them, former soldier or not.

If they were caught by the Japanese in Japan then, fine, detention and trial is understandable but even then the US government should be on his side ! Everything else is STRANGE !

So? Are you saying the law doesn't apply to former members of the armed forces? They can just do whatever they want?

The Japanese law ? No ! I thought it doesn't ! It shouldn't ... it doesn't make sense to me .. they bled for America and now at the mercy of a foreign dubious government .

Was he never a serving member of the USAF ?

He is not a serving member of the United States armed forces nor was he in any way acting on behalf of the United States armed forces or the United States government when he committed these acts. So no, it isn't even remotely strange.

Thanks ! Was he never a serving member of the USAF ?

... the Japanese were blowing smoke up his rear all along and he couldn't see it.

The elder Taylor has helped parents rescue abducted children, gone undercover for the FBI and worked as a contractor for the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Are there any US soldiers here ? How do you guys feel about this ?

Isn't it a bit strange how America just handed a very good soldier over to be tried in Japan. Isn't this a treason of some sort ? Are they here on a mission to collect info on the Japanese justice system first hand ?

So all western world have to enter a very possible nuclear war so America economy is number one?

How is this "nuclear war" very possible ? It really isn't . Who will start the nuclear war ? China ? China will get the Russians ( IMO very white and still a bit racist) on board with this idea ?

I don't think so.

There might be something in Taiwan and China will back off.

Posted in: Biden sells G7 on global tax, but U.S. Congress is a hurdle See in context

Right. So how do you pay for roads, health care, hospitals, libraries, parks, bridges...?

For libraries you don't pay because there is wikipedia and it runs via donations.

Separate for health care, pooling money could work okay.

The schools should all be not for profit audit-able orgs . For those who can't pay I think google can build something online that will work great. For those who don't like school , you've got prisons also other not so cool jobs.

Beautiful Parks can be businesses. Foe just jogging you can go to the nearest mountain

Hospitals should all be military !

For bridges and roads whoever needs them should pay for them.

Prisons can be generate revenues

And that is just me in 5 min of being bored.

So you don't hate paying taxes per se, you hate the "inefficient bureaucracy"And what system would you find more satisfactory exactly?

Me personally I prefer a low tax system. Unsupervised mandatory 5% of income for Competitive Military and Police ! Mostly because it makes it easier to accumulate wealth.

Chasing rich US Companies around the world for tax is definitely not the solution to this problem low tax however is.

So why do you hate paying taxes?

Because of the invisible layer of inefficient bureaucracy in between my money and public benefit.

Posted in: Johnson backs Tokyo Olympics; Japan wants more G7 support See in context

The prime minister expressed his support for the Tokyo Olympics, and welcomed Japanese efforts to ensure the Games can take place safely

In a way I am relieved he did . It goes to show that he hasn't gone completely mad.

If you were the post Brexit UK PM and presented with the following option what would you do ?

1) Support Tokyo 2020

2) Don't support Tokyo 2020

Politicians who actually believe in trickle-down economics should be fired on the spot, put on a rocket and sent to mars.

Hirai said the cost of developing and operating the app had been halved to 3.8 billion yen ($34.7 million) from the originally estimated 7.32 billion yen by paring down functions following a decision to bar spectators from abroad.
