prohibit any serious belief in his ever changing behavior !

We should NOT be surprised if NK restarts it's aggressive provocations and actions again in the near future !

There is talk in DC at high levels behind the scenes about withdrawing US military from Asia !  It's not about IF but WHEN ! America understandably is TIRED of being USED when Japan and Korea are quite capable of defending themselves !

Why should Americans risk their lives and US taxpayers bear the burdens of any foreign countries especially when those countries in reality intensely dislike the US and only want to exploit it to their advantage !

Japan's economy will soon C R A S H ! No question in this writer's mind about that. And you don't need to be an economist to realize that ! Trump will continue to put America first and that particularly means US

auto manufacturers and jobs, THAT alone will affect the Japanese and European auto export markets !

No more gravy train rides for those countries who have long dumped their inferior autos onto US soil.

Posted in: Ghosn again asks for bail; promises not to flee, pay for security guards See in context

He saved Nissan from certain ruin and now the company and Japanese gov't repay him by trying to destroy his reputation and life ! Not surprising Japan has a loooong anti gaijin history of doing such things to foreigners ! Nothing happened to Tepco directors after the worst nuclear disaster in modern times do to absolute negligence BECAUSE no one touches the Japanese ONLY gaijins that is crystal clear now !

Finally the Japanese press/media is focusing on the injustice facing ALL foreigners in Japan AFTER CNN and the foreign media started exposing it ! Don't stop there remember every Japanese prime minister that apologized for corruption when did they ever get prosecuted ? Let's face it folks Japan is a very racist, unfair country and society when it comes to EQUAL justice !

Posted in: Australian PM slams 'ugly racial protests' in Melbourne See in context

I immigrated to Australia in 54, it was always a racist country, they urged uk and europeans to move their for just ten pounds a family because they were afraid of being overrun by the Chinese and wanted to keep the country caucasian. However as the father of Australians I understand the outrage against africans muslims and indians who have committed terrible violent crimes against innocent aussies in recent times and in this writer's opinion as a long time resident those type of immigrants should NEVER have been allowed into the country !

Australia would be better off as a republic with a right wing government would have ZERO tolerance for immigrants who commit violent crimes and fast track deport em !

What justice system ? The MOJ (ministry of justice) HATES gaijin (foreigners) that's WHY there is a 99% plus conviction rate in Japan. The police, prosecutors,judges are extremely prejudiced and they RARELY if ever pursue Japanese especially wealthy connected ones like Abe who was recently accused of corruption. Every Japanese prime minister in memory has publicly apologized for corruption !

Having lived many years in Japan and having Japanese in my family including grandchildren I have NEVER seen fairness or real justice there yet.Police often stop foreigners to check their ID which is absolute racist profiling !

The outrageously expensive lawyers, IF you can afford them, ONLY care about grabbing all the yen they can but provide meek and useless defense ! Justice in Japan means protecting the prosecutors and judges reputation period ! This will NEVER change until foreigners there organize and protest en masse and the foreign press finally gets off it's useless butts and exposes the REAL Japan to the world ! A nationalistic police state controlled by despot minded hypocrites and morons !

Hakamada Iwao is a perfect example of how a nation of WAR CRIMINALS still in power treats even innocent people !

Most japanese cops or otherwise would react in self denial initially because it has always been a very safe society compared to other countries. There is a pattern here though and it appears that the few discontent resort to violence because no one cares or reacts to their frustrations or concerns,etc !

Posted in: Abe pledges zero tolerance on sexual harassment See in context

If serious then he better close down Ginza's comfort clubs...lol...because that's where too many gov't officials and business men hide from their families to pursue mostly attractive foreign females for comfort ? gimme a break. The entire male lifestyle in Japan is involved with sexual harassment of women including many of Abe's associates and friends,etc...how's he gonna change that ?

It doesn't take much smarts to figure out it wasn't suicide...obviously it was to silence them about some extremely potent business deal (s) which were unlawful or and money laundering activities,etc or whatever and IF the Canadian government did it's job properly, which is doubtful, the culprits might actually get caught and brought to justice !

The US has reached it's tolerance level with Kim Jong Un and offered every conceivable compromise in return for real peace talks and NK stopping it's nuclear and other WMD programs. It is clearly as daylight now that Kim is determined to continue his nuke ICBM's and daily threats to the US and the world therefore military eradication of the problem IS justified as a defensive move !

This is why all civilized people and countries must unify to eradicate them !
