They'd be fools if they weren't already! What good is the anti terror law if you don't implement common sense too.

Posted in: Do you think a man holding a door open for a woman, holding her chair for her when she sits down, or giving up his seat for her are outmoded gestures of politeness or do they still have their place in society? See in context

Pretty stupid question imo.

How men can help women, and how women can help men is pretty clear in my head,

Be nice in general to people.

It's important to keep the passage open and used by all.

If China manages to get a foothold, they may not want to cede anything back.

Ultimately, it's their fault for saying it's "their sea" and "their passage", as that's just not realistic in 2017.

As long as Japan and the US are strong enough nations, there's nothing China can do about it.

In future wars, the ability to stop or intercept large numbers of incoming missiles will be crucial to victory and the survival of the populace.

Japan needs to up its game and the US too.

You want to reward criminal behavior? What if someone stalked your family impersonating an officer of the law cause he was a pervert? Would you applaud his "initiative"?

Posted in: Lecture by Japanese psychiatrist Kayama canceled due to threats See in context

I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do.

You make comments about a right wing group, and online sympathiser's or members threaten to harass you or to commit crimes.

So you ultimately decide to let them win instead of beefing up security or calling the police? Shouldn't the authorities be notified?

Hey why don't you try your new security law on people who make violent threats against lecturers in halls with children?

@scrote

Theres no morals in war. If Japan had won the war, we'd all be reading about how bad the west was.

How do you see things? America Good, Japan Bad? Spartans Good, Persia Bad? South Korea Good, North Korea bad? Too bad life isn't as simple as legos.

What he said is awful from a humanistic point of view.

But when real war and conflict start, you see that humans on all sides will try to kill each other.

Posted in: No. of foreign visitors to Japan reaches 2.29 mil; record number for May See in context

I know what you mean jcapan, things have totally changed in Osaka in the last few years. New hotels and facilities all over. It's a good thing for sure in my opinion, and of course it's good for the economy, so I don't really agree with those who don't see it.

I try to not dislike tourists even if they are in my way, as I go off and become one every little while too.

Here in Osaka, the entire downtown is flooded with tourists.

I live up north and from Namba, all the way past Shin Osaka the trains were about 30% tourists from China, Korea, and South East Asia.

I'm really glad that all these people are coming to Osaka and hope they have a great time.

PS - They are probably helping to keep Japan afloat financially as well.

Im surprised Abe doesn't try to state that the massive increase in tourism is his "third arrow"...it's the best thing that's happened during his time in office.

Posted in: Japan missile defense drill aims to ease concern over North Korean threat See in context

Sounds like we could do with an update. They are the last line of defense, but they are dated and only have a range of 15 kilometers.

Is THAAD currently the best defensive system around?

Ultimately Japan should develop its own anti missile systems.

When your house fell off its pillars in Australia, you took a couple jacks and jacked the entire thing back up.

I say YES, do it (again).

But this time freaking erect a monument in both countries that says "We are over it! Done!

Respect the victims for sure, but please, enough of this political hogwash.

Imagine what good Korea and Japan could have done together instead of bickering this entire time.

Senior teachers have a wide potential berth to abuse children as they will not be challenged by their underlings at work. Actually, since they are the "sempai" the others may even fee pressure to imitate their behavior.

I'm looking at all these JHS students on the train.

Poor guys memorizing DICTIONARIES!! With vocabulary that I would be proud of a native speaker their age for using correctly.

They are forced to learn that while not even knowing the phonics for the Alphabet or how to describe what they want for lunch?

The English they have managed to retain up until that point was probably less than useful as well.

Actually if you think about it, he represents about %65-%70 of the elderly voters.

Most people also don't vote against their families chosen party.

Hes saying exactly the right things ("we will do our best", "challenge for this, gambaru for that") to the 55-80 year old populace, and it will (sadly) work again.

The Fu

As a navy destroyer, shouldn't you know of a massive container ship that is coming straight at you? Like you said, they are like trains, but with long distance radars, and several lines of communication, and supposedly 24/7 alertness and readiness.
