Are we to assume that coaching renegades entails teaching them to simulate Japanese shame programming? It might be a good idea to research Bioenergetics a bit. A classic energy-stealing technique, especially popular in Japan, is creating a feeling of obligation or shame in the mind of the one from whom the energy is to be taken.

WHy not just solve the problem in the traditional way? Manipulate finance in such a way as to force Japan to turn to the WOrld Bank or the IMF for help, which is given on condition that they institute "reforms" that allow multinational corporations to buy control of their industries, leading to control of their media, leading to suppression of the issue, and out of sight, out of mind. It works with logging rainforests, etc. It might be a little difficult to bankrupt Japan, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Titian's remark about the KGB probably is prompted by an incorrect memory of the poisoned umbrella used by the Bulgarian secret service to kill a defector in London years ago.
