Posted in: Japan happy as export ban on Atlantic bluefin tuna rejected See in context

Celebrate while you can, selfish Sushi gluttons because you and Japan just killed the Bluefin tuna for good, or will soon. Thanks to you greedy freaks, my grandkids will never be able to enjoy not only Bluefin but many other species of fish you (and to be fair, other nations) have over fished for too long. I hope your grandkids enjoy Asian Soylent Green.

Posted in: Japan leading charge against bluefin ban See in context

The consensus here seems to be against the "culturist" and greedy Japanese policies. Finally, some sense has arrived on this issue of overfishing (except for the nonsensical Japanese). Wah, Wah, Wah! cries the Japanese Gov't when it doesn't get it's own way....and then it bribes other countries.

How would people like it if some predator cut off one of their arms and threw them back into a cubicle to work? Humans and their "cultures" are very cruel and will eventually kill the oceans and all the fish, cetaceans, coral reefs. Hence we kill ourselves.

So what if Tuna disappears. People will find something else to eat. It's human nature to use up all the resources, and then move on. Maybe with no more tuna to eat, Japanese will eat more American beef.

This is the kind of thinking a child of 5 does. Welcome to Japan's fishing and whaling policy, created by selfish children who then whine about "culture"!

Posted in: Anger and defiance in Taiji after 'Cove' wins Oscar See in context

Morality aside--I can't understand why people would allow their children to be fed mercury-laced dolphin meat. That's worse than immoral--it's obscene. ...Killing your own children. C'mon, you good Japanese people, wake up!

Posted in: Anger and defiance in Taiji after 'Cove' wins Oscar See in context

Now that The Cove has been revealed to the world with a well-deserved Oscar, I hope the people of Japan, including those in Taiji, will come to their senses and stop the slaughter and sale of dolphins and orcas. Many other cultural practices were stopped when their immorality or lack of conservation was perceived...that's why whaling was outlawed.

Now that The Cove has won the Oscar and will be shown on a wider scale, I can only hope that the Japanese people, including those in Taiji, will come to their senses and stop the slaughter. Well sending dolphins and Orcas to aquariums from Taiji for obscene profits is just as morally reprehensible. Culture is not self justifying, or shouldn't be.

Posted in: The dumbing down of Japanese students See in context

A lot of good observations made here in comments. I think it's not just the Japanese... since the advent of the Internet and rise of corporate need for slave-wagers, most kids are not taught HOW to think critically--just fit in and use the 'Net on their computers. It actually changes the way a person's brain works, hence, the dumbing down. Use it or lose it, folks. Not program in--info out.

Posted in: Clinton says critics of U.S. relief effort in Haiti misguided See in context

Once the dust settles and the Haitians' needs are met for survival, we'll see if the US does the right thing--debt forgiveness, rebuilding help without strings attached. Given the history of exploitation, I fear that the Haitian people will be exploited again. The US corporations pay them slave wages ($1.25/hr) to make shoes, etc, right now.

Posted in: Clinton says critics of U.S. relief effort in Haiti misguided See in context

Maybe if you read the history of US mistreatment of Haiti, the criticism might be more clear. The USAnian people are to be commended on their generosity but the suspicion that the Gov't might have an agenda down the road is justified. The US military ALWAYD has to have control, neh? The US supported the coup that ousted Pres. Aristide into exile, a despicable political act consistent with other screwups and interference by the US in order to expand Empire in the vulnerable Latin and Caribbean countries. BTW--I see there are 66 CG helicopters distributing supplies but why aren't there 166? It seems they are needed to bypass the bottlenecks!

Posted in: Which side do you think looks more in the wrong following Wednesday's clash between Sea Shepherd and Japanese whalers? See in context

The Japanese whalers are just lucky they didn't kill someone on the SS ship. Then all Hell WOULD break loose. If the illegal whalers are so innocent the why do 98% of the world condemn their whaling? Sea Shepherds clearly have the high moral ground here and I support them fully, despite Ossan's stupid blank judgement of SS supporters.

Obama is going to China to visit the USAnian money. I hope he gets out of Afghanistan as soon as possible and cuts the OBSCENE military budget so the USA can put what little money we have left towards domestic problems.

Does anyone actually think that Obama will go against the Generals and the Military industries--corporations who supported his campaign? He's bought, let's face it. Perpetual war and Empire so the profiteers can get rich(er). Greed rules the USA, not sanity, or the ridiculous claims of "Freedom and Democracy".... what a sad farce.

Maybe a lot of the bases are on top of old JP pollution but if you really look at the history AND current US bases, you would see that they are serious polluters, like in my old ho e town of Sacramento--one of the worst-polluted places in the USA, much related to the military.

Posted in: Obama facing hard choices on Afghanistan war plans See in context

"Waist deep and sinking down in the Big Dusty"...Obama's gonna deeply regret even trying to prop up a corrupt guy like Karzai...but then where would the CIA get their drug money for their slush funds and secret prisons so they can round up anybody that looks cross-eyed and torture them? This a continuing disaster but there are more private contractors than troops now and they certainly love to profits they make. that's right--more private contractors than troops and growing every day... $$$$$

Posted in: U.S. looks to Vietnam war experience for Afghan tips See in context

At the risk of repetition, I will say again, "Afghanistan is the Graveyard of Empires"...the US will lose (again) and many will die for NOTHING--except the profits of the profiteers and Corporations who produce war materiel. You cannot win there unless you commit genocide on the Pushtun tribes and that's not winning, is it? The greedy WANT perpetual war and Obama has fallen right into it. It's a shame. Guys like Sarge just help perpetuate the madness.

Bush and Cheney's lies lately, trying to rewrite history would have been laughable if they hadn't been so disgusting. War criminal trials in the Hague are in order since it's apparent that no one in the USA had the courage to impeach these murderers. What atravesty of Justice for the world these greedy men have been.
