igh. Please look at a map. Japan is very far to the north. It is a straight line from China to Guam with Taiwan and a few very small islands in between. Fortunately Guam is a long way from China, farther east than any point in Japan and several times farther away from China than Japan is.

What makes you think china's attack will come from only china?

Christopher Glen, where IS China popular today? Even the Kenyan gov’t has stopped a chinese project.

Yup, the $12million (RM200 million) Sigiri Bridge in Busia County, Kenya, COLLAPSED even before it was finished. It was built by the china-nese.

This thing has potential....as emergency response vehicles.

Imagine a team of medics flying ABOVE floods, landslides and getting to remote mountainous regions and administering much needed medical help. No need for large helipads. Just a small clearing the size of a car park slot.

I say NAY for commercial uses and YAY for emergency medical uses.

The solution to the world's problems is not mass population transfer. Especially when most of the "refugees" end up being the fittest, youngest, and most able people, leaving the old, sick, and vulnerable behind.

No, Japan has the right idea. If you want to help people in other countries, help them there - in their own countries.

Great point! And well said!

Always the fault of the victim. Nobody else need take responsibility

What about her victims? The ones who were verbally and emotionally abused by her? They're victims too.

Responsibility? When it comes to suicide, we are all responsible for our own lives.

Women of all ages receive a disproportionate amount of online bullying/harassment. From comments about their appearance, to threats of a sexual nature and/or death

Most of the bullying and harassment of women is by other women. Not only on social media but also IRL.

Posted in: Reality show 'Bachelor Japan' cast member dies in suspected suicide See in context

Hana Kimura, a 22-year-old female professional wrestler and cast member of the popular Japanese reality show series "Terrace House," who committed suicide after receiving a barrage of hateful messages on social media

They left out the part where the "hateful messages" on social media were actually the backlashes for her verbal abuse and tantrum on live TV.

The matter could have been solved if she had been sincere in her apologies for how she treated the other cast members and had made a sincere appeal for forgiveness. Her life could have been saved.

Also I find it odd that someone in the pro wrestling line .... so used to taunting and provocation...could have been this affected by all this. Me thinks she took her own life out of guilt for what she had done rather than the social media backlash.

Posted in: NHK apologizes over tweets said to fan discrimination against Koreans See in context

Vanessa Carlisle

First I want to know is is there any historical validity to the episode of the train window smashing and the chants of "We are citizens of a victor country"?

That works both ways. Perhaps one should also question the validity of some of the anti-Japanese "I was there" stories that are perpetuated by the other side.

If there is then there are but two points. 1) Does NHK also equally or fairly present negative incidents of Japanese during that period? and 2) Is everyone mature enough to handle a historically based work of fiction?

Again, that works both ways. How many Korean media outlets highlighted the Korean traitors who betrayed their own countrymen to the IJA or the parents and pimps who sold their own daughters as comfort women for money? Or the women who offered themselves freely for money because it was a more lucrative business than toiling out in the fields?

How many on their side can handle the truth that not all of them were victims and some actually aided and benefited from selling out their own people to the IJA?

It’s an attempt to build a good image of Qatar. But Qatar is an odious despotic state which treats many of its migrant workers as slaves. Accepting from the government there supports their regime.

In addition to contacting the police, the victim’s brother sent out a call for help on social media, asking anyone for information leading to the whereabouts of the bike.The response was overwhelming, and thanks to the nearly 200 reports they received

Now THAT'S the kind of Japanese community spirit I really admire. Well done to the brother and the responders.

My online gaming friend in India said that India's lockdown was so hard people would get beaten with sticks if they ventured out.

From what I've seen on the news, this is true. The video I mentioned above of the 3 youths on the same motorcycle? The policeman who confronted started beating them with a huge stick.

They deserved it in my opinion. Why be stubborn and rebellious? People's lives are at stake.

Monkey Buisness, they are cute untill they are on your roof. But as the country side depopulates they will will reclaim their territory. And they are not malicious just inquisitive. Annoying.

People forget that monkeys have very sharp teeth and can rip out your throat. Stay away and only admire from a distance. Plus they attack in packs. Except the alpha male protecting his female harem; he will kill you on his own.

Encourage water drinking sessions on farmers, construction workers, soldiers, etc working out there under the sun.

Russians hacking AIS data? Must be true because someone somewhere said it.

What makes you think it was the Russians? The ship left china on it's way to Brazil.

The china-nese have already used faked GPS signals to evade detection & invade Gelapagos waters with their illegal fishing fleets.

Posted in: Huawei, long resilient, suffers under tougher U.S. pressure See in context

The alleged security concerns of Huawei are BS fabrications just so Trump can put US tech companies first. Its protectionism at its worst.

It's PATRIOTISM at it's best.

Finally, a president who puts his own countrymen first. Yeah, yeah, he has made some mistakes with Russia, et al but so what? The previous presidents ( and several US companies as well as US universities) SOLD OUT their own countrymen to the CCP at a level that Trump will never match. When Trump pushed back against Hua-china spy machine-wei, the US (and European) phone companies should have used this period to come up with their own phones and networks.

Huawei is ahead in the tech game making better products at lower prices

Using technology that chinese cyber parasites STOLE from US, Europe, S. Korea and Japan. Lower prices? Using slave labor of imprisoned Urgur Muslims, Tibetans, Falungong members and Christians. Not to mention slave children and teenagers.

Posted in: Woman arrested over murder of common-law husband See in context

According to police, Furukawa consulted with them in April about Horikawa’s abusive behavior toward her.

Maybe she already prepared an alibi for her pre-meditated murder? The abuse defense? I hope investigators find out how much insurance the man had bought and how much of it will end up with the woman's relatives.

When there’s a headline “man kills woman” I wonder, “How long did he abuse her before he finally crossied the line?”

When the headline is, “Woman kills nan.” I wonder, “How long did he abuse her before she defended herself.”

Then the flaw is in your thinking. You automatically assumed that the woman is always the victim just because "she said so". This is called misandry and sexism.

..SDF to set up electronic warfare capability unit next spring...

...With the envisaged unit at the Ground Self-Defense Force's Camp Kengun in Kumamoto Prefecture, southwestern Japan....

..The unit will also nullify radio waves transmitted by enemies by sending out other radio waves that have the same frequencies....

...To achieve such objectives, the GSDF has adopted the cutting-edge network electronic warfare system dubbed NEWS....

...The GSDF personnel assigned to the mission will undergo training at its Signal School in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, near Tokyo.....

Gee, thanks a lot mainstream media for announcing to the whole world about when, where and exactly what the JSDF will be doing. I'm sure the enemy will never to try to snoop on these personnel or their equipment.

In the age of GPS, it’s really hard to see how the ship was more than a boat-length off course, much less many miles

FACTS:

Recently, a large chinese fleet was doing illegal fishing near Galapagos protected waters. They apparently FAKED their GPS signals so that they wouldn't be discovered there until the navy caught them. You can look up the story on the internet. They faked the GPS signals to make it look like they were in NEW ZEALAND....some 10,000km away.

The Japanese ship had left china before this incident.

What makes you think a ship's navigation systems cannot be hacked or tempered with while in the port of a communist country?
