Prosecutors should never have that level of power that they can imprison a man indefinitely until he is forced to confess. In the US a trial must be held within 45 days or the accused set free. One also has the right to face his accuser in front of a jury of his peers. It is juvenile to make accusations to the public without letting the accused answer. This prosecutor should be fired for incompetence.

I don't blame him. It's ridiculous to keep a man in jail for years without a fair trial just to squeeze some cash out of him. This is about money, not crime. If the board didn't like the job he was doing it was up to them to fire him.

Wise move. Past time to show China and Russia that Japan will protect itself.

Norman Goodman, punishing others for one's emotions is not productive. You are looking for revenge, not justice. It was an accident and a learning experience. Revenge will not change the past.

The media exists to stoke paranoia among the ignorant.
The comments here illustrate that reality only too well. Kyushu Electric wouldn’t waste the money starting the reactors if the power wasn’t needed.
There is no reasonable alternative.

The only candidate that got help from Russia was Clinton, who illegally used $3,000,000 of campaign cash to purchase the fake dossier. Poor loser.

So many unemployed Trump haters have already forgotten the 8 year recession where the labor participation rate was the lowest since 1935. Most Americans LIKE to work and are very happy about the amazing Trump economy. Now that wages are rising, people are streaming back into the workforce. We don't need cheap Mexican labor, and the same people who don't want border security are the ones whining about the tariffs.
Don't like them? get that wall built.

Fake news from a Trump denier. The President's approval rating is at 51%. Well higher than was Obama's at this point in his administration. The unemployment rate was persistently high during Obama's eight years, but is now at the lowest point since 1969.
Americans are not going to be fooled by such negative stories, and democrats will once again be disappointed, as they have been since the 2009 elections. The economy will continue to expand unless the media tricks Americans into voting against their own welfare.

Japan has trade barriers to discourage American cars. Trump is correct about the trade imbalance, the US has an unsustainable debt because of it and no steel industry.

Despite the sour grapes of the never Trumpers, who consistently let their emotions rule them, Trump is a winner, and his foreign policy is so much more informed by reality than the last US president. Abe is smart to know this, and he will act accordingly. Japan does not have enough youth to defend itself any longer, and the idea of biting the hand of the ally that has made it rich is a very foolish one.
The US will always be Japan's biggest trading partner, and Abe is smart enough to realize this. Relying on the sorty of ambivalence that AU and India invariably display would be a fatal mistake.

Wise move. China represents an existential threat to all it's nieghbors, and international shipping.
Cowering in the face of a threat is a terrible mistake.

No one in the US fears gun owners. 40% own at least one. And cars kill many more Americans than are shot with a gun. That said, this is an ongoing problem in both countries.

The Chinese burn imported coal, and Californis imports 40% of their electricity and has the highest costs in the US. Only a fool believes that electricity comes with no costs. Solar will never be reliable because electricity can't be stored.

Fake news. The laptop story has been out for months. Leftists in the media just can't accept their defeat.
The people rejected a secretary of state that sold influence, and kept a secret and unsecured mail server.
The media wants to abolish democracy in favor of Kenyan dictators in league with crony capitalists.

No threat? That is head in the sand mentality. China has billions to spend on it's military since regulation drove manufacturing out of every modern western nation. And they are intending to flex that muscle.

Trump isn't politically correct, but he isn't a Clinton influence peddler. The Clintons would sell everyone's freedom for a Saudi dollar. She has accomplished nothing except to destabilize Egypt, Libya and Syria and cause mass chaos. They refused to pay her foundation the protection money she demanded.

Clinton is a criminal. Her husband sold influence while she was Secretary of State. That is why she used an illegal personal server for email. to hide her criminal activities. Trump has never sold influence or lived of the taxpayer like the corrupt Clintons.

Only the ill informed buy into government funded climate nonsense. This is a tax scheme perpetuated by the most venal crony capitalist and rent seekers. The burn rate of the sun determines climate. Not the hot air of the politician and his pet rent seekers.

The silly fear mongering is sad. Tritium is only dangerous when it's loaded into a hydrogen bomb. It's used for watch dials and gun sights and is hardly dangerous. 57 millimeters in the ocean will never be noticed.
