Posted in: 72% of survey respondents say border controls reason for not visiting Japan See in context

I don't really have money to travel right now, but if i did i certainly would not go to Japan in an group tour.

When i travel i wish for freedom to stay where i want and go where i want. And preferably not just to see the tourist hot spots that are crawling with foreigners. I want to go to smaller local areas and restaurants, to see museums and walk through the streets and nature at my own pace.

Essentially exactly what an group tour denies.

Wonderful how creative minds still shine through the propaganda and lies, uncorrupted by the CCP's incessant desire for control.

There is definitelt some form of PR control behind the scenes just as there always is in Japan during such matters.

To what end or goal i am not sure yet, but definitely will be interesting to follow.

The messages from the Japanese police already gave away these signals to me.

Posted in: Former Prime Minister Abe dies after being shot while campaigning in Nara See in context

Reportedly the suspect held a grudge against an organization he claimed Abe was a part of, but the police didn’t want to state which organization.

withholding that information seems a bit fishy.

It’s pretty obvious that organization is Nippon Kaigi.

Takarazuka, i used to live there. I recognize the surroundings. What a horrible incident. And with a crossbow?! This guy needs help badly. Something has definitely gone seriously wrong up in that head of his.

Oh i can remember the stares when i’d drink some water, get it down the wrong throat and cough. People in Japan will look at you like you’re carrying the black plague or something. Prejudice can be really bad down there. I can just imagine how much worse it must be now,

I hope the vice minister is fully aware this is just for show, because if he believes for a second that Lebanon will willingly hand over Ghosn then he is delusional.

Great, now we can feel safe.

As was said by comments in another article, where are the doctors? The real professionals? This is one of Japan’s biggest health crisis and this is what the people get?

Posted in: Gov't panel, responding to criticism, says cruise ship not designed to be hospital See in context

If they admit the cruise ship is not a hospital and inadequate for controlling infected patients... why did they keep them there? Get them to a hospital on land seems like the best solution no? Yet now they claim no responsibility because the ship is not a hospital.

Are they aware that they are making themselves look like idiots?

Posted in: Ukrainians hurl stones at evacuees from China See in context

What exactly were these idiot protesters thinking here? These people were headed for quarantine where any potential vectors would be kept isolated from the population and their brilliant idea to solve this fear of the virus is to smash the windows and let potentially contaminated air out into the crowd of protesters?

You know a system is bad when the one party in power refuses to take responsibility for anything.

Posted in: Coronavirus infection cases spread further in Japan See in context

I’m not in Japan anymore, (and thank god for that all things considered.) but i’ve been there enough to predict from the very first report of the taxi driver being infected that the disease would spread in Japan like a spark in the dry savanna igniting a wildfire. All these infected people have most likely taken the commuter at some point, making all the passengers there future vectors. The very way Japan works can almost be seen as a metociously designed environment for highly infectious diseases to ravage. Combine that with a overly traditional and conservative, but useless governmemt, and it spells out a recipe for disaster.

and yes, it needs to be said. Those thin paper masks won’t do a thing. Moisture can easily pass through, and even so it’s been proven the virus can spread by going through people’s eyes. Just covering the mouth is not enough.

A laughable headline right there. I can already picture the Japanese deputies explaining to the Western journalists:

"You see, releasing irradiated water into the ocean is perfectly safe for the environment, and it also makes the fishes happy!"

Sounds like the infection already has possibly infected many people in Japan who will show symptoms soon. All it takes is one sick cough in a crowded metro train and the whole country’s got it.

Posted in: 'Hostage justice?' Japan fights back with an internet FAQ See in context

So their response to the criticism is simply: "No we don't do that."

Their answers just make the detention centers seem more fishy. Inmates are only allowed to shower twice a week? Why does the detention centers sound like they are in jail already? Where is the presumption of innocence?

Posted in: Putin and Xi ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West See in context

The modern American system is a total dysfunctional mess.

Russia just has Putin. He's the boss, and everybody knows it.

@Burning Bush

So Putin is "the boss", what exactly is so endearing about an unelected leader with a bunch of gangsters in office that stows away hidden yachts and billionaire mansions at the expense of the Russian people while proclaiming propaganda about "the west" to keep his population under control? Recent opposition leaders have been thrown in jail under false pretenses and who knows what other god-awful things are happening in secret there.

American democracy has issues, this is undeniable. But to say the Russian system is a better choice is laughable. And Putin is a damn KGB crook. Something tells me you haven't looked at what real democracies look like. Look at the political system of Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Germany and other European countries. The US should try to model itself on these countries, not dictatorships.

Interesting to see a communist party criticize another for not being "communist enough".

Although i strongly believe authoritarianism is the end product of all communist governments in power, no matter how well intentioned they were at the beginning.

Posted in: Angry Iranians question authorities for concealing truth on plane incident See in context

Two points: American / Iran tensions predate Trump by a great many years (no doubt before some of us were born); secondly, you can dress it any way you like but the man who pressed the “fire” button was Iranian. This one is on them.

I'm going to have to agree with Bungle on this one. Trump no doubt should face the blame for stirring tensions in the Middle East. But the plane incident was all on the incompetent Iranian military. The Iranians are correct to be mad at their own leaders for hiding the truth from them.
