"I want Mr Motegi to make full use of his negotiating skills”

Whats wrong with Mr. Abe’s? How long has he been ‘negotiating’ with South Korea and Russia? I hope Mr. Motegi does better; he can’t do worse.

I’ll bet each and every one is a card-carrying Nippon Kaigi member, out to reinstitute an ultra conservative government. NE Asia has yet to find peace. I don’t see it coming in our generation; not with moves like this. We’re going to see some very tense days ahead. This is definitely going to affect the Olympic attendance. Sad.

Whatever. He’s already got his future secured for sure. Next guy is probably already chosen. His penalty already decided. His kowtows well practiced. He got rid of Ghosn. Nissan for all its failings is firmly in Japanese hands. He’s a hero in the Japanese inner circle. He took the bullet. Let’s see Nissan’s next 5 years.

“The drop in South Korean tourists is a blow to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's plan to make inbound tourism a pillar of Japan's economic growth”

Lets call this the fourth arrow. Strike four. Who’s advising our Dear leader? He should look elsewhere. Just wait. If ever the constitution is revised, these figure will pale in comparison to what Asians will do. Is Mr. Moon helping Mr. Abe prepare for the future?

Is Oppenheimer worse than Marx who developed the ideology used by so many government leaders that are responsible for tens of millions of deaths?

Posted in: Jobs in Japan for S Korean graduates dry up See in context

Looking at the future beyond two outdated governments, i hope Korean and Japanese youth take a good hard look into their respective governments and promise not to repeat this - in either country. It’s every bit as criminal as the history they’re rebelling against 100 years ago. I long have lost belief in governments, any around the world. Time for a one world governing body. Local differences like this need to be dealt with swiftly and intelligently without political or ideological bias. Both nations are filled with deep ideological roots, paralyzing normalization. Moon isn’t alone to blame, even if he is the main instigator.

Not that I trust Moon but this move is a good one. Let’s see how Japan reacts. For sure well see deep balking. It should be banned on all international events. The military still waves it. It’s definitely not a peace symbol.

Beijing blinked. Interesting. I wonder what or who exactly made Xi’s government back off. Foreign pressure? I can’t imagine protesters in HK alone could do it. Let’s wait for the other shoe to fall.

Funny, this news comes just a day after Ghosn’s judge changed. What’s the connection? The whole Ghosn case unraveling behind the scenes?

Expect no miracles in the near future. If big brother isn’t watching companies will just do what’s financially most beneficial. Foreigners are just a number, a faceless entity. To get some respect the newly come workers will need to get under the skin of their employers.

In this face saving move I just hope this case goes quickly, Ghosn be freed soon and justice be done.

This article is too sweet. I know several women who just saw they couldn't make it in Japan. One went to Canada & has a marketing job. It isn't easy but going abroad opens many more doors for women. It's better if you know the local language.

Posted in: Estimates cast doubt over Japan's public pension sustainability See in context

But changing the constitution and fighting for pieces of rock in the middle of nowhere is high priority. Who cares about the citizenry? Once retired they’re a liability, not an asset. So, who will pay for the shinkansen, the tolls, taxes, etc. ? How about the minimum waged incoming foreigners? Milk them next. Sponsor a few more Olympic sized events, and whatever more we can think. Foreigners..a deep love-hate relationship. I remember just a few years ago there was no good word for them until it proved our Dear Leader’s unspoken 4th Arrow was the winning arrow. God help us all.

This is a no brainer these two love doves should already know. They’re so engulfed in their pride that they’re making the world, and indeed this part of the world much more dangerous. They’ll be asleep should an attack be forthcoming. I hope this isn’t what it takes to wake them up.

Africans must stand united. Foreigners love not them but their resources. Everyone knows this. A strong African alliance is the only real protection the nations have. The article doesn’t even say how many nations are members of TICAD. Strength starts not with wealth but in the mind. As long as nations fight alone they’ll be taken under the divide and conquer traps the world’s hungry wolves are always setting.

"This is a domestic decision aimed at implementing the appropriate export controls. It's not meant to impact relations between Japan and South Korea," he added.

Right. OK, so the world is going to see it as such. Mhm. What timing to say this.

So if the baby screamed when the mother was there then it would've been normal. Lots of prejudice here too. I hope he got an I'm sorry from the caller.

Strange title. The dark side of Xi's government is coming out. Nothing but ego. Kill & destroy others for my sake..with the excuse it's for the CCP. Where's the future? May true freedoms thrive.
