Posted in: Russia to move troops into new barracks on disputed islands near Japan See in context

More than Russia I see Japan preparing for war. Russia has always been militant. Our Dear PM is now militarizing and the next PM will pull the trigger. Abe is now laying the groundwork. Pity. Sides quickly will be taken. We can all see who will be siding with who. We need a good statesman here; someone who knows how to see things from the other’s point-of-view and negotiate intelligently. We don’t have that now. We need a win-win mentality which at present doesn’t exist. We’re still at a winner takes all mentality. The more things change indeed the more they do remain the same. We don’t learn.

Why do we need the Japanese government to tell multinational corporations what to do? Who’s on the front Line? Who’s learning from their mistakes? Why isn’t there an example of individual thinking to lead the way? As long as the government continues to butt in Japanese business will not use their ingenuity.

Steamrolling. That’s all the LDP is good at. What other real successful has our Dear Leader had? Want to keep foreigners out? Make babies..lots of them..although a little late for that. Anyway, changing the constitution has priority over your desires, Japan. Gaijins are coming. BTW, where did the exact 345,150 number come from? 150? Someone has nothing else to do than to calculate a number which truly doesn’t exist?

Anyway, gaijins, welcome.

I’m not so sure I’d go for a black rotary..too extreme. ;). However, I AM happy with my iPhone. I’m addicted to the convenience. Can’t go back at this time. Will it be worth the additional costs? We’ll see.

Interesting how Saikawa’s name is being kept clean. I’d like to know more about his laundry. Who is this faceless ”Nissan” that’s being mentioned?

Nissan is suddenly weak-kneed. Why? Looks tough at home but doesn’t quite measure up internationally!?

Saikawa is hiding. Something tells me he’s Deepthroat. The only national and not a word about him. Squeaky clean. Really? Let’s see some good journalism here.

Posted in: Abe says he is aiming for constitution change by 2020 See in context

Many years ago I told people that Japanese are not really peaceful people. Scratch just a little under the surface you see a nation that’s anything but peaceful. Among a social class there may be harmony but there’s also so much insecurity among people. Is Japan truly threatened or is it just a perception? Is it a perception our Dear PM is capitalizing on? I have barely seen diplomacy taking place. It seems we’ve gone from peace straight to aggressive remilitarization, including changing the constitution, which will happen the moment the opposition takes its eyes off the ball. In this sense I see it not as if but sadly a when.

Next, let’s hear from the auditors, both in-house and from the outside. Let’s see how they defend themselves. Also, I question if Saikawa is some government deep throat of sorts. He was in the inner circle all along. He’s squeaky clean? Something tells me this is not going to turn out nicely. Internationally, this battle will be studied by corporations as well as governments. Quid pro quo on the horizon. The government didn’t think this one out well.

Posted in: Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers See in context

In-house solutions, have Japanese do the work will only make things more expensive in this land that can no longer can afford any extra costs. Also, I’ve met nurses that don’t want to do ‘basic’ work because it’s too dirty. Poor old folks are stuck.

Long before all of us were born Japan decided to isolate itself both culturally and linguistically. Very self sufficient. I know another country not far away with similar thinking. That thinking is OK if you’re always in control. No ones an island. Too late for Japan to realize this. They now have to accept what’s coming, like it or not.

BTW, I kind of blame McArthur for not making Japan more international. At least he should have imposed English as a second official language, much like Spanish in the US. Japan would be a different nation today.

This too will change. It’s just a matter of time for people to get used to our foreign faces, companies to need us irrevocably, paying for training their labor, etc. By then the Japanese population will have decreased even further. Business would scream. By and large foreigners, like locals, are a fine bunch. Just need to get used to - us.

Foreign nation visa issuers ought to advise these young starry-eyed workers about how they’re being (mis-)treated in this nation, the poor working conditions some have to deal with, the lack of appeals, government insensitivity, etc. If these young people go through this hell then I put part of the blame on the mother nations of these workers, knowing realities here.

@Schopenhauer I remember back around the year 2000-2001, not long before 9/11 there was a short report coming out of China that reporting negative stories about China in the foreign (and local) media was from then on prohibited. At that time there were already hundreds of thousands of demonstrations and other problems being reported in China. Occasionallly some stat still gets leaked out. It’s not difficult to imagine what’s going on at the present. I’d even say China isclose to collapse given the recent report that the government has also banned twitter.

Where’s the international community’s condemnation? One kind of expects by now that foreign workers will be treated unequally. Where are the mother countrys’ outcries? Workers are totally unprotected once they come here..or anywhere. When these workers come home they’re bringing back knowledge and know how.

For me the elephant no one is talking about in this drama is Hiroto Saikawa. Even the media is keeping him from the lime light. He looks too snug in his new position. How much is he a deepthroat for the government. He’s too squeaky clean. Who’s pulling his strings? This has all the markings of a coup. Keep Ghosn away as the government secures the puppet regime.
