Posted in: U.S. Speaker Boehner touts bills to repeal Obamacare, build Keystone oil pipeline See in context

Sometimes arithmetic is not as straightforward as it seems to be. Helping 12 million undocumented people find jobs will help add up to 24 million ethnic votes, while could also anger and alienate 48 million job seeking local supporters. Executive vetoes, unilateral actions will earn acclaim from some, but could also, under current circumstances, disgust the majority and hurt the next presidential election.

When it comes to military movements, China is the teacher, whose Suntze Art of War teaches you how to conquer your enemy without actually fighting, whose philosophy says be sure you attain three objectives by one single move. In that Japan is a good student, by going militarization you stop China from taking a chance, thus peace is maitained without firing a bullet; by relaxing weapon sales you earn a lot of money, that's one objective, you lower Jieitai's procurement cost through mass production, that two objective, by supplying weapons to peace loving middle east nations you help them stop the onslaught of sisi, that's three objective. Wonderful move.

‘’ Why those dinks escape the Rule of Harmony is beyond me. Any ideas?’’

Unlike in other Asian countries where motorcycles are for transportation, here in Japan these are toys for spoilt brats--high tech, high rev, kakko ii, expensive, bousouzoku stirs up the fashion that help boost sales for the maker--members of Japan Inc where police is not an outsider.

What mentality or philosophy or lunacy is behind the theory that when China owns thousands and thousands of nuclear weapons aiming at Japan and its retired general openly declared that turning Japan into a nuclear sea of fire is their national dream, Japan must not have any of its own? Rely on USA? Are you sure?

''What bothers me is that when these pieces of scum are caught, they will get all the "human rights" available, will be tried and kept in a nice warm prison and fed regularly. As much as I dislike violence, exceptions are possible''

''''So you think we should sink down to their level? And how will the world ever get better if we were to take that route? If no one is willing to 'be the bigger man', then we will get stuck in a rut, and never improve as a race.''''

Anybody tell us the difference between the following and the post shown above:

When these pieces of scum are caught, get all the ‘’human rights’’ available, tried and kept in a nice warm prison and fed regularly, others should not complain, should not try to correct it, or do it otherwise. Why? Because these pieces of scum, with their level, are entitled to the monopoly of cutting off people’s heads, slashing their throats, in public, or private, anyway and anyhow they want; while others, who are of higher levels and therefore should aim at improving themselves as a race, should not violate the monopoly of these pieces of scum.

The Emperor is Japanese people’s ‘’our very own’’, which turns Mr. Abe a mere servant of the people, not a chance for him to turn himself, or anyone else for that matter, into a dictator.

Posted in: Could Islamic State reach Japan? See in context

What will happen to Japan if most of its power is down, factories, transportation means stopped, fighter planes, war ships, other military facilities ceased to function, people's jobs disappeared? Then Japan is a sitting duck. What happens if situation lasted for a year? Then Japan a dead duck. Same thing will happen to Korea, China, and most western countries.

To make it happen, al-Qaida and Islamic State must control all Middle Eastern oil wells, and do an oil embargo. And the reason they have not done it, is because most Middle Eastern oil producing countries cooperate with oil importing countries, adapting a rational, balanced supplying policy, let alone an oil embargo.

So the conflict, really, is an internal one: Middle eastern against Middle Eastern. In that, Tokyo is not a target--long term yes, but not now.

''i bet if you and your family are the ones who are hungry & without access to a sanitized toilet, then you would think otherwise. which would have a higher likelihood of causing immediate risks to their health - malnutrition & disease or being conquered by your enemy?''

India has no immediate ganger of being trampled by its enemy and it's people enslaved because it has nuclear weapons as mighty and as sharp as it's enemy's. In case it does not own these weapons, whether it has immediate risks of being conquered by its enemy and its people enslaved is to be decided by its enemy, not by you, or me, or India.

A small sound indicates the phone is on. In isolated areas look back often, turn on the phone and turn around to face the person approaching.

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' When N Korea began missile testing, there were report that Japan has anti missile system that crushes N Korean missile.

There are people like tmtmsr with half baked knowledge of Japanese history to tell us we Japanese should obey Chinese attack .''

Historically, there were rather few 'Chinese-Japanese mixture' in Japan. Most Toraijin were of Chinese origin, of Hu-Han mixture--胡-漢混血. 胡, barbaric tribes of north and northeast China, whose characteristics, according to Britannica: -- 'Riaiding other tribes to capture cattle, women, and prisoners was a recognized method of property accumulation'. In short, a certified predator. When these barbarians mixed with the blood of civilized, intelligent 漢民族, they became a very skillful, efficient predator. When hundreds of thousands of these arrived in Japan, they immediately victimized Japanese Jomonjin--a peaceful, hardworking, intelligent people--, turned them into farm slaves, grabed military powers, rendered Japanese ruler powerless. They intermarriaged among themselves to keep their predatory capacity intact. They have ruled Japan for hundreds of years, till Meiji Ishin, before military took over; till Shinzo Abe, a Japan ruled by Japanese. If ever there will be WWIII, it won't be instigated by this government.

Check and surprise yourself to find where SOME of modern Japanese are from.

''During Yayoi and Tumulus periods, Japanese population all of a sudden swelled, earthenware changed, bronze and iron appeared, rice plantation technique established, temples and huge tombs built---the results of a great influx of immigrants from China and Korea. For it was Waring States and Spring-Autumn period in China, the defeated Hu-Han hybrids escaped to Japan, as many as a million according to some, bringing with them those goodies, plus their acumen in politics, in palace intrigue, in Suntzu Art of War, in how to live off the Hyakushyos, thus very soon they and their descendants gained power and became Shoguns, Daimyos, Daihoneis, kanryous, politicians, all those you hate, all are powerless now because of a new Abe era.''

Even with Mariana, Iwo jima, Okinawa and others all gone, Japanese military authorities still vowed to fight till the last man, not because they loved their Emperor --whose continued nobility and dignity were readily guaranteed by the Allied---, but because they forsaw their own excecution, in the hands of the enemy. They deliriously hope that swarms and swarms of women and small kids with sharp pointed broom-sticks in hands marching towad the GIs would force American parents to force their government to give up landing on Japan mainland, has peace treaty, thus save their necks.

Let's say there is a system which constantly bombards into the ears of Hsi jinping, his genserals, politburos etc with the messages that goes like Sir, we can see you just alighted from your car--you're entering the building--Oh, Oh what a gorgeous party, have a good time--Night, night, sleep tight--etc, etc, then peace will be guaranteed. Mainly because China knows there are scores of US Verginia-class submarines quetly sleeping, or rather pretending to be asleep, at the bottom of the ocean just outside its east coast, whose tomahawak warhead each packs with a power greater than the combined explosives used in WWI and WWII, and whose proximity let it reach whatever targets in China in minutes, when Chinese inter-continentals are still trying to climb into the skys of the Pacific Ocean, where multi layers of anti missle missles are waiting.

And China also knows, regrettably, that they do not have any such subs sleeping outside US coasts, yet.

When industrial, commercial, political centers of China are thus gone, what's left of China? So why claim this and claim that and claim verything to offend everybody around yourself, to risk accidentally awaking up those sleeping subs?
