What’s the use? With current immigration policies that allow Approximately 1/3 of arrivals that are projected in June, Wait time in immigration is as long as seven hours. How many passengers realistically can wait in line for seven hours or more when it comes to increased arrivals in June. Bureaucracy rules again in Japan

This is a Keystone cop version of the ringisho system of Japanese decision making. There must be consensus building before any meaningful and significant action can be taken. They have to go to the whole process again to decide whether the identity and photo of the perpetrator can be made public. By that time the perp could be halfway across the world and back. Hawaii has a similar situation with its governor. it takes him about 10 days before he can reach a decision when time is of the essence. It took him 43 minutes to cancel a false missile attack from North Korea that had all of its citizens in Hawaii scrambling for cover. He said he couldn’t find his Twitter password when all he had to do was call 911

I know people who have homes in Japan but aren’t allowed in. This just shows how incompetent the Japanese immigration system is. He who has money makes the rules. Let’s hear the sanitized explanation from the immigration department

One should feel sorry for these prejudiced Japanese who spew hate and violence at other minorities. For they are uneducated and culturally deprived. Many of them grew up in dysfunctional families and now find themselves in Low income jobs unable to find vertical mobility and a place in functional society. Unfortunately their children will grow up just like their parents

As long as Japan is run by old misogynist Japanese men things will never change. Their forefathers got Japan into pillaging and rampaging all over Asia. Their discriminatory and predatory immigration policies commit Japan to a declining population that will only accelerate into oblivion

In the US women’s rights are declining. The country is led by old white males who are making abortion illegal. They are dictating that women have no power over their own bodies. It’s like women telling men that they must be castrated for committing rape or causing the birth of an unwanted child. Hmmmm. Maybe that’s a good idea.

Again, another flub by old Japanese men running the country. Never mind that Japan imports less than 8% of carbon pollutant energy from Russia and never mind that Putin will never give Japan back its northern territories, Japan cannot support its allies and stand up to dictator Putin. It comes down to greed conquers all. Kowtow to Japanese oil and gas importers rather than doing the right thing. Let’s hope when Japan needs the support Old men leading its Allies will be less avericial

I saw the owner of the boat run from the reporters. After his decision to send the boat out in severe inclement weather he can’t face the public and apologize. Greed conquers all

Greed conquers all. Arrest and charge him to with negligent homicide. Each passenger who died demands of life sentence without parole for this social deviance.

The boat captain was advised by fishermen returning to port because of rough seas that it was too dangerous to go out. Did the owner of the boat order the captain to proceed anyway? Greed conquers all.

Japan is paying the price for its past irrational policies in bowing to Business pressure to allow the proliferation of part time workers, misogynist business practices of limiting female vertical mobility and gender based unequal pay for equal work. In addition, Japan needs to increase its skilled worker immigration policy by tenfold to rejuvenate its stale economy. This will surely shore up the international strength of the yen and rehabilitate the domestic consumer economy

His bribes to government officials to ban him from leaving Lebanon is only good until the next Lebanese election. If these officials are booted out where do you think Ghosn will flee to? Brazil is a good candidate or some other South American bureaucracy were bribes will be willingly accepted

Ghosn, the master chess player, has found himself to be checkmated. There are at least two other jurisdictions contemplating indicting him in addition to France and Japan. He is confined to Lebanon for life amidst the bombed out city plagued with power and water outages. The proverbial out of the frying pan and into the fire. Se la vie.

Japan is locked arm and arm with Russia, China, Myanmar and Syria. This consortium led by Japan censors the truth out of school textbooks. If you believe Japan, World War II never happened Thousands of women voluntarily went to Japan to volunteer as sex slaves. Over 100,000 Korean men Went Voluntarilyto Japan to work as slaves in munitions factories and mines during the war. The problem with these old man who lead Japan today is that they cannot face the truth and apologize for past transgressions. Let’s hope the new generation of leaders Will spread Goodwill instead of hiding the truth And censoring school textbooks.

No loss. Putin never intended to return the islands. He was just squeezing Japanese politicians for as much concessions and investments as he could muster from them. By instituting sanctions against Russia, Japan is also giving notice that the days of kowtowing to Putin are over. Japan is also giving notice indirectly to China to keep out of Taiwan

The Japanese agency overseeing these foreign workers in Japan should be held accountable for failing to protect these workers and monitor abuses by participating employers. Criminal complaints must also be filed
against the perpetrators and victims must be compensated by the abusing employers. The relationship between employers and agency personnel is highly suspect.

No one is denying atrocities committed by Japan during the second world war. But please check your facts regarding the incarceration of American citizens by the American government. Italian Americans and German Americans were not incarcerated by the American government during that period. But the American FBI searched all over Central and South America and arrested non-combatant Japanese citizens of those Countries And incarcerated them in Crystal city, Texas. German and Italian military prisoners of war were given better housing in those camps than civilians of Japanese ancestry.. Many of those civilian Japanese were not allowed to return to South America until as late as 1964. There was no Compensation paid to them for the illegal Imprisonment by the American government.

Russia will never return the northern territories to Japan while Putin is still the dictator of Russia. Japan should support The opposition parties in Russia instead. Japan should also increase its defense activities in Hokkaido. It will cause Putin to transfer resources from the Ukrainian border To the northern territories. Japan should also ask NATO to send ships to monitor the Russian exercise near Japan. The United States will support this effort by its Loyal Partner in Asia.

China is the bully of the East. Russia is the bully of the West. Both are bully puppets of Xi and Putin. And both of these classic communist countries have become dictatorships and oppressors of minorities and the meek. Their citizens are too afraid to speak up against their strong armed rulers. And who are their loyal allies? Other dictatorships like Syria, North Korea, Iran, Myanmar, Belarus and Turkey. The time has come to disband the United Nations. It’s a failed system and ineffective to address important world issues. No country should have veto powers. Citizens of each country should choose their own representatives to a New World organization. The time is now.
