"It was necessary to end the war soon" which you learned at schools in U.S.

no it was necessary to end the war with as few AMerican and allies lives saved as possible. Unfortunately in war you dont worry about how many of the enemy die. An invasion of the mainland would have been brutal, and the huge loss of life in Okinawa was a small prequel to what a mainland invasion would have been like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWP_qhFnXoc

America was a very different country in 1791, when there was a concern to balance a federal army with state militias.

yep main weapons were single shot muskets and pistol, far cry from the 100s rounds/p/m of todays weapons. Forefathers would have worded the constitution much differently if they could have seen these weapons would inflict on the general public in peacetime.

What would happen if my colleague slept with my partner and I decided for revenge, to post drugs to them in the most stupid, easy to get caught way? oh I heard a rumour a friend of a friend whos done just that, made it look like a mail order from some asian country. But it wasnt for cheating. Just remember they rarely check out going mail in many asian countries , just incoming mail into Japan. Revenge can be a biatch

Keep drugs out of Japan. Amazing job by the Police! Like finding a needle in a haystack, and they found it.

yet drugs are easily available in Japan if you know where to look. Most of these drugs are manufacturered in Japan by organised crime

Posted in: Former U.S. deputy attorney general: If Trump was not president, he would be indicted See in context

I did and now I’m giving an opposing point of view.

there is no opposing opinion, the facts are Mueller found plenty of evidence of obstruction but choose not to indict because he cant do that to a sitting POTUS, he left that up to congress. Its clear congress wont do it so itll be up to the AMerican voters next year if they've had enough of this lies , deceit and obstruction or they want more of the same

 "take it with a grain of salt".

there is no grain of salt when you obstruct justice, its breaking US law. Trumptards have no problem with the POTUS breaking US law as long as he fits their agenda.

when she opposed Trump on the travel restriction order from Muslim-majority countries with a high risk of infiltration by terrorists.

oh you mean like Saudi Arabia!? oh forgot theyre not on a ban list, but they have oil so AMerican lives dont matter in this instance.

What does Mueller have to say about this? why would Mueller care shes not being investigated for obstruction, and why would Trumptards care!? they didnt care what Mueller said , as he was just a corrupt FBI agent until he found no collusion on Trump. Seriously Trumptards flip flop around more than a fish out of water

Posted in: Japan creates first artificial crater on asteroid See in context

Except in this case, it is. No one has ever done this before.

A comet was impacted by a space probe in 2005, and another probe visited another astoroid on 2000.

space rocks were brought back from the Apollo missions nearly 50yrs ago. So what Japan has done here while not identical has been done before. While what Japan has done while impressive for its budget, do you think Japan could send its own astronaut into space on its own rocket, do you think they could send rovers to Mars or even send people to the moon, highly unlikely. I dont care what Japan does with its space exploration but to suggest it is on par with Russia US, EU or even China is hopeful at best.

The question is why you look at an article about Japan’s achievement and want to minimize it, or say what is isn’t, or to say who did something better.

because whenver Japan do something they claim it as unique make it as an achievement far beyond anybody else , which in almost all cases its not. Look at the big picture of space exploration what Japan has done and where it want to go, its not really in the same ballpark of the US , Russia, EU or even China.

Astronauts aren't the same as asteroids

no theyre far more difficult to keep alive in the vaacum of space, why would I be prideful Im not even American. You stating that Japans achievement if unique and far beyong what NASA has achieved but you couldnt be more wrong.

The moon isn’t an asteroid. Hitting an asteroid is more difficult because of its size and orbit.

oh pleeeease clearly have no idea what your talking about, NASA had to launch and carry tons of equipment to the moon with astronauts, orbit the moon land two astronauts on the moon explore the lunar surface then return them back to earth alive. they did all this with computers that had less processing power than today's smartphones. Fast forward 50yrs and with all the modern computers advanced manufacturing techniques and materials of today Japan is gloating that they put a satellite in orbit around an asteroid, which NASA also did twice in 2000 and impacted a comet in 2005. SO like I stated before its a great achievement for the budget Japan is given but on a scale of space exploration of the past and what is planned for the future Japans achievement is hardly world changing.

NASA hasn't achieved a feat like this yet. They were the first to visit an asteroid (Eros) around 2000 but they never probed as extensively, made a crater or brought back asteroid rocks + dust like this mission. Not yet.

they impacted a comet in 2005 and yeah they visited the biggest asteroid you see in the sky, the moon, brought back a couple hundred pounds of moon rocks they even managed to land people on there to collect it for them and brought them all the way home alive. that was 50yrs ago. So as I stated before its a great achievement for the budget Japan is given, but its not very newsworthy unfortunely outside of Japan mainly because its already been done. Meanwhile China has put their own astronaut into space wthout hitching a ride on a Russian or US rocket/shuttle and is planing a moon landing in the not too distant future. So when you look at the big picture of space exploration Japan really has to set it priorities before it gets left in the astro dust.

Then gloat about it.

who said anything about gloating, just stating facts, if anything its the J media are the ones gloating, stating its a first of its kind when it clearly isnt. You dont win space races with limited budgets, Japan is currently a distant 4th or 5th when it come to space exporation, China USA EU all spend considerable more money and the results will show. While Japan is shooting at rocks in space the US EU China are all aiming for bases on the moon and sending people to Mars. So unless Japan really start spending money where its needed and starts leading itll be doing repeats of the past and claiming them as innovation.

Hahaha, smart court, isn't it ? 

how is that 3 months of detention and still no confession LOL all of Ghosn bail money will be returned as long as he follows bail conditions and stays in Japan until the trial. Ghosn has been released on bail twice now which is extremely rare, Id say Ghosn lawyer is worth every penny so far. See as with most legal systems the smartest lawyers go into private practice and legal defense where the real money is , no so smart ones stay as prosecutors.

And Kim didn’t get the one thing he and his father and grandfather got, “sanction relief.”

yet they still have their nukes

No missiles launched over Japan, No missiles launched over the US

yet they still have their nukes, testing sites being rebuilt , more launching coming soon, then what , what is America going to take away then. Lets face it Trump cant do anymore that what previous POTUS could unless he declares all out war. Even Trump isnt stupid enough to realise the ramifications of that.

Abe will send a high level delegation to US for the abduction case, of course unrelated to trade.

why do Japanese keep flogging this issue what will AMerica do that Japan cant. Trump cant even get Kim to give up his nukes why would he want to even make an effort to give Japan its citizens back. Abe can't give NK the concessions it wants and its doubtful Trump would allow Abe to give them any unless it includes denuclearization.

any currency agreement should be agreed to by all G8 countries including the US, if any country breaks the agrrement all bets are off. America basically screwed Japan with the plaza accord of the 80s they should never agree on anything remotely similar unless the US is subjest tgo the exact same conditions.

Congratulations to JAXA! Amazing news! Japan may not be at USA level in space research, but is rising very fast.

yes well done to Japan with their limited budget,

meanwhile 200+ million km away a number of Mars rovers that have landed on the red planet have driven dozens of km on its surface taking photos and rock samples, even drilling into the surface, they just recently measured the first ever marsquake

probably because theyve already done it.
