I wonder what the EU will do? Nothing, they are too busy selling cars to China. If you want to see someone without a spine just look for someone from the west.

You really think the Vietnamese trounced the huge China in just one month? 

Yes it did. The bulk of the Vietnamese army was in Cambodia at the time. Vietnam had to fight with reserves and won. China lost to Vietnams B team.

Posted in: Japan's legacy of forced labor haunts ties with neighbors See in context

I assure you this article cannot be shown to Japanese public in Japanese language by Japanese press.

Really? As the article stated, “When the wooden stick broke, the beating went on with a shovel that was picked up. He was beaten until pieces of torn skin stuck to the metal. His face got twisted, and he collapsed, not even able to scream,” Yeom was quoted as saying in Hayashi's 1981 book, “Forced Into Forced Labor."

Posted in: Japan sees fewer COVID-19 hospital deaths than other nations: study See in context

No kidding. When you're not testing and you need family approval for autopsies that you'll never get, then yeah, the number will look low.

LOL, Japan had 3.5% fewer deaths for the first six months of the year. Just accept the facts.

, while attributing the result to fewer people being obese or having diabetes in Japan.

The above is true. Just look the stats yourselfs.

Posted in: Motegi in UK for post-Brexit trade talks See in context

Does he have to self-quarantine for 14 days on return, Yes he does.

is he barred from re-entry, No because he a Japanese passport holder, which affords him rights to return to his home. Foreigners are not Japanese citizens as such dont have the same rights.

Does his Japanese passport protect him from COVID-19? No, but a mask and common sense will. Both of which are absent in the west.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) estimates that about 2.4 million cases of foodborne illness occur every year in the UK.

Posted in: Int'l school teachers in Japan exempted from entry ban See in context

"Unlike in countries like UK, in Japan, school is not compulsory for foreign children."

True, but they are allowed to attend a Japanese school- which many do- if they want to attend.

Posted in: Int'l school teachers in Japan exempted from entry ban See in context

Only “international schools?” So the education of Japanese students at Japanese schools isn’t important?

It is important. Japanese schools don't need teachers from aboard. International schools need teachers from aboard to teach their students.

Posted in: Japan lacking burial grounds for expanding Muslim population See in context

While Japan is home to an estimated 200,000 Muslims, a figure likely to grow as the country accepts more foreign workers,

Fun times ahead.

Posted in: Japan lacking burial grounds for expanding Muslim population See in context

Sorry, this is Japan. If you want special treatment then make a will and prepare the cash to send your body back to wherever you want to be buried. Not Japan’s problem.

Not only Muslims but anyone with requests after their death. Lets face it, death is the one thing we can all be certain of in life...prepare for it!

Well said.
