On two separate occasions I have had very memorable dreams involving people who were dead within 48 hours.

On how many separate occasions have you had memorable dreams involving people who were NOT dead within 48 hours? Perhaps these dreams were only memorable because of the coincidence.

One of the many things that amazes me on JT is the incredible ability for some to spin anything so that it's the US' fault, either totally or partially.

And no, I'm not an American.

That's right. Damn Gene Roddenberry and his rampant glorification of japan's wartime past.

Have to fly to the US soon on business and not looking forward to it unless the TSA follows taka's suggestion and starts hiring Hooters girls as screeners, and then change their name from the TSA to the T&A.

Also for anyone considering flying through Canada as an alternative to the US, we have the full body scanners too, even for domestic flights.

Posted in: Why do you think that Christmas decorations and illumination displays are put up so early in Japan? See in context

As I say every year when this question comes up on JT (how sad is that), the decorations are put up to give the miserable gaijin community in Japan something else to whine about.

By the way, here in Canada we've had decorations up in shops since November 1st.

Canada needs to keep the border with the US open to trade;

Yes but you're missing half of that story, the US needs the keep the border with Canada open to trade, as Canada is still the US' largest trading partner (you do know trade flows two ways, don't you?) and the US' biggest supplier of fossil fuels.

Posted in: U.S senators urge Canada to stay in Afghanistan See in context

Canada will be pulling out combat forces (but staying on with development and training of Afghan security forces) and this is because Harper leads a minority government and had to agree to this pullout to stay in power. Anyone with even a passing knowledge of Canadian politics (i.e. neither McCain, Graham, or most of the commentators here) would have been aware of that.

I was excited about this until learning that these flights arrive at Haneda at 11pm. I guess I'll continue to use the AC flights to Narita arriving in late afternoon. I can handle the longer trip into Tokyo from Narita if it gets me to my hotel at 7pm instead of 1am from Haneda.

kurumazaka;

One likely possibility is that China does not want to see Japan rearm itself. Japan does not need to rearm itself as long as the US Japan Security Treaty is still functional. It may seem counter intuitive to say that China prefers the US presence in asia to a situation where Japan charts its own course as a “normal country“, but this is a well established idea among those whose job is to think about these issues

Bang on and one of the few comments here with any validity to it.

Posted in: Chinese navy chopper approaches Japanese destroyer near Okinawa See in context

Of all the foolishness expressed on this topic so far, and there has been a lot of it, the winner has got to be the following variations on a theme;

smithinjapan - "If Japan is so utterly upset and afraid by this then why all the talk about getting rid of their only real defenses?"

I'd be asking the same question, if in fact there was "all the talk about getting rid of their only real defenses", except that there is no such talk. If you have been hearing such talk, I'd love to know from whom, other than drinking buddies or students.

ElJeffe - "If the USA were to withdraw all bases from Japan"

Big if, and one that nobody is talking about, or at least nobody who counts.

avenger - "As soon as Japan kicks out the US forces in Japan, China will come marching in."

"As soon as"? That's even better than Smith's. Again, where did this idea that Japan will kick out all US forces come from?

As for the "China will march in" line - it's nonsense. First off, this idea comes from the false premise that Japan is incapable of defending itself without the US, which is just that, false. Japan's military is capable of defending Japan, that's what it's for, and it is very well-equipped to do that. Look at geography, look at supply lines, use common sense - for China to attack and occupy and Japanese islands would be a huge undertaking for very little gain, and would probably fail. Secondly, China has many neighboring countries with far smaller and weaker militaries than Japan's, including some it has had shooting wars with (e.g. Vietnam), and I don't see them under threat of an imminent Chinese invasion without the safety of good ol' Uncle Sam.

the_sicilian - "If you think China will sit by if the US left, well, you will learn Cantonese, very quickly."

See my comments to avenger, but you get first prize with that one.

Get it? The discussion is about relocation of one base in Okinawa, NOT about all US forces leaving or being "kicked out". And if that were to happen, the idea that Japan would suddenly be at the mercy of China is laughable and condescending nonsense.

In two months, Sea Shep will be in the Med, ramming Algerian and Sicilian tuna boats, and cutting French nets

You mean they're not heading to Canada this year to help save all those poor seal pups from us barbaric Canadians?

I guess since Canada seized their ship last time SS tried that and has put it up for auction, they've learned to keep away. Imagine the uproar if Japan did something like that?

Posted in: Ragtag military left to defend Japan on shoestring budget See in context

timorborder;

Furthermore, if the US ever decided to put Japan to the test and leave the country, where would the Japanese buy the arms they need to defend themselves

Usually you post good stuff on anything military and defence-related but this one just wrong on so many levels.

First off, Japan develops, produces, and buys a lot of its kit domestically, especially the GSDF - tanks, APCs, assault rifles, ammunition. It doesn't buy these from the US.

Second, aircraft and naval vessels are a mix of domestic designs and stuff licensed from the US, not quite "bought" from the US. Japan has the capability and capacity to design and build its own.

Third, there's a logical flaw in your point. Even if the US totally withdrew all forces from Japan (unlikely), why would that mean that Japan would have no ability to purchase technology or kit from the US? Is hosting US forces a prerequisite for military sales? Does Australia host forces to allow then to buy Super Hornets, Blackhawks, Apaches? If anything, if the US pulled out it would sell MORE to Japan.

Anyway, I think people are giving far too much credence to an article full of anonymous statements by SDF personnel which is a translation of something that appeared in "Shukan Shinsho".

smith;

on the other hand it was a fact that Japan was doing the research SOLELY to be recognized as the first to build such a computer...

What nonsense - no-one does that kind of research just to be seen as the first. However if it's "a fact" as you claim you should be able to point to evidence of this fact, as opposed to your own ill-informed opinion?

Sharyn;

Japan will NEVER allow this documentry to be shown inside Japan, same as they wont allow the film "the cove", to be shown

This movie has been screened multiple times across Japan and there are more screenings planned. Which part of "shown for the first time outside of Japan" didn't you understand?

http://d.hatena.ne.jp/s84/

As for The Cove, it's has limited screenings already and will get wider distribution across Japan this month.

Both films are important for Japanese to see, because the truth is important. But if you're so concerned about the truth, make sure you yourself have all the facts before you being propagandizing nonsense that "Japan" bans films within its own borders.

“A country that doesn’t spend money on research is in serious trouble!”

Definitely a smarter comment than anything I've heard from the DPJ lately.

Some people try to trace evolution all the way back to the "Big Bang"

Some people might, scientists don't.

But that begs the question

"Begging the question" is exactly what you're doing.

"Where did the material/conditions/initiation of the "Big Bang" come from?

Where did "god" come from, other than the human mind?
