Let's define "Gulf region", hoserfella. Because for some reason you refuse to see that THAT is what the article is about (concerning Saudi Arabia). We're talking here about countries like Kuwait, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrein, UAE and Oman. Now, every region (or continent) has its "heavyweight". And in THIS region, being it weak or not weak, Saudi Arabia is one of them (with Iran). Again, as the article stated! And as I stated!! The GULF REGION, hoserfella!!!

hoserfella, read the article again. It says "Gulf heavyweight". Not "World heavyweight". Calling Saudi Arabia a featherweight in the Gulf area is ridiculous.

I would say just 1 of those 3 losses was humiliating. Besides, it's kind of funny to see that the most successful team in Asian Cup history, who qualified for the World Cup four consecutive times, is named "featherweight" based on 3 games in just 1 week. Rich!!

Ozken:

Schwarzer is in the top three goalkeepers in the EPL.

Would you mind checking the website of the Premier League and search for the link "Top 10 Goalkeepers", which was updated yesterday at 11am? Then maybe you understand who's uninitiated here.

You clearly lack the ability to assess what makes a good keeper or not.

Maybe. Maybe not. But I DO have the ability to see that a goal keeper is NOT world class if he never made it to the Top 10 of best goal keepers in the world. It also shows that I not only judge his qualities by the standing of his club.

I would've thought being the starting keeper of a club in a world-class league like the EPL would constitute him being "world-class".

Playing in a world class league doesn't make him one of the best keepers in the world (world class). Besides, if he's really that good his club wouldn't be ranked 15th.

I always had a feeling that Okazaki could bring more than Honda. He (Honda) is a good player, but I wonder what Zaccheroni will do against Qatar. I still think he should keep Okazaki as a substitute to get the best out of him. Anyway, this was definitely not a slaughter and Schwarzer is good, but not world-class. Let's keep things in perspective.

Standing by South Korea is one thing, but standing by Washington (light-years away from here) is another.

Posted in: Toyota CEO says he'll listen to customer concerns See in context

It's not about if I have much choice or not. It's about the NHTSA not following world standards on many issues similar to those rear signals. So why would Toyota listen to them?

Posted in: Toyota CEO says he'll listen to customer concerns See in context

You mean the NHTSA that still permit rear turn signals to emit red light while almost every other country uses amber light to discern them from brake lights? Yeah, let's listen to their expertise.

Posted in: Man held for stabbing 15-year-old boy in Ibaraki hardware store car park See in context

smithinjapan:

Let's figure out the reasons on our own:

1) The kid bumped into him at the car park and did not say 'excuse me', so the man tried to kill him.

Guess No.1

2) The man's mother was bothering him about his cell phone bill, so he just decided he would randomly try to kill someone.

Guess No.2

3) He didn't like girls because they don't like him, so we just wanted to randomly kill someone... but of course didn't mean to do it.

Guess No.3

4) He was mad about... ummm... (fill in blank)... so he decided to kill someone.

Guess No.4

5) Whatever other random reason is the excuse in Japan these days for stabbing someone.

Guess No.5

So my friend, with just 5 GUESSES (that sound like yet another classic example of your wishful thinking) you claim to "figure out" by yourself what really happened? Rich!!! But hey...

Funny! The article clearly states that the police found no alcohol in the driver. But it seems posters on JT go into automatic mode when reading things like this and type as fast as they can "DRUNK DRIVING!!!".

Yeah..well, some posters here love to call London Third World (strange logic) in this context simply because they want to spit on London. Pity.

A good photo for the ASPCA, don't you think?

The "C" in ASPCA stands for "cruelty". Disillusioned, could you tell me where you see the cruelty in this picture?

What about those people wearing that kind of camouflage jackets with a German flag on it? If that's ok, then a Nazi costume as decoration in a shop is ok too!

Posted in: FIFA not considering changes to 2022 World Cup to avoid heat in Qatar See in context

Of course FIFA is not considering to move the 2022 WC to winter. They chose Qatar themselves so they knew about the conditions there in summer.

What I DON'T understand is that certain posters here seem to have a crystal ball or something and already know (better, pretend to know) far in advance that only few people will attend. I just wonder what those bold statements are based on. Knowledge? Nahhhhh!!!

He already has a back-up plan in case he gets caught. He held behind very aggravating documents that are secured with a password. The moment he gets caught, those documents will be disclosed automatically.

Prosecute him? That's really what they want? Tom Flanagan, the personal adviser of Canadian premier Stephen Harper, already said openly that Assange should be taken out. Taken out!!! The Canadian government openly speaks about murdering someone!!

"How long before Julian Assange is "taken out"?"

Well, Roger Cressey already volunteered to "pull the trigger" (his own words) and shoot everyone who's behind this. Too bad he forgot about Executive Order 12333. And too bad those words come from a terror expert.

skipthesong:

how do we know everything this guy is putting out as true? With his fame, he could basically make anything up at this point and be believed.

tclh:

How many are true? How many are false?

Until now the US didn't mentioned anything about documents being false. They are only freaking out about the disclosure of them. Says enough.

Still, Gibbs said, such cables could compromise private discussions with foreign governments and opposition leaders and could “deeply impact” U.S. interests as well as those of allies and friends.

Absolutely, Mr. Gibbs. Especially when those allies and friends find out from those documents how the US called and talked about important world leaders and diplomats. And how Washington got information about those people's networks, credit cards and DNA.

Yes, Mr. Bibbs. I can truly imagine you are deeply concerned about this.

One thing I DON'T understand. You are blaming others to be "reckless and dangerous".
