North Korean issue is necessary to keep the American base on Japanese.

Posted in: Former women's empowerment minister Noda to run for LDP leadership See in context

Been hearing about her as the first woman to become PM of Japan, but always fails to get the number to secure her party's leadership. The first time I heard of her, I just graduated from university. Now, it's been 16 years and a few of my classmates already have teenage sons and daughters, yet Noda-san still hasn't become the first woman PM of Japan...

In these countries, religious facilities can't even invite huge crowd these days, and almost every major corner had check points in order to control population movement due to the pandemic, and these suicide bombers still find a way to do whatever they have to do? Ridiculous!

No other country could have put this all together but Japan! It was difficult, it was controversial, it was polarizing, but if it had been a different country, it would have been the worst ever. Luckily it was in Japan.

So? What's the fuzz? You didn't mention how many tests were conducted, so obviously, nobody knows if the quantitative figure is actually material or not!

Posted in: Record 98 pregnant women in Tokyo had COVID-19 in July: study See in context

Back during my college days, there was also this incident where a pregnant woman and her child both died because no hospital was willing to admit them for the delivery. There was NO COVID back then. It's sad that similar incident still happens, and I'm sure that there were unreported incidents prior to this one that happened too.

Posted in: Local gov'ts condemn Aichi music event organizer for lax COVID steps See in context

Oh! So you only noticed what was going on in Aichi? What about the concerts happening at Tokyo Dome during the same period as the Olympics? While the anti-Olympians were busy condemning the quarantined foreign athletes (who were living in a bubble), young Japanese concert-goers were converging in Tokyo Dome, queuing for tickets without social distancing! Whatever happened inside is up to your imagination!

Posted in: Author Murakami criticizes Suga over pandemic measures See in context

Murakami should run for office and hopefully get the LDP leadership or any party that will control the majority of the Diet. He will definitely make great decisions that will please all factions, all sectors and even mass media.

Posted in: Organizers say Tokyo Paralympics 'going smoothly' amid pandemic See in context

It's been pretty entertaining since the very beginning, but we can't deny the fact that there are witch hunters (aka reporters) who try to find all the dirt that they can dig out just to make the whole event look bad or to bait more clicks!

Posted in: Japan probes two deaths after jabs from tainted Moderna batch See in context

The best solution here is to set a deadline to give everyone an opportunity to be vaccinated. When that deadline is over, we can all go back to normal. If people would still die - with our without the vaccine - then that's just it!

NZ should remain locked down until it is safe for people to work. It is the only way to make NZ the most livable country in the world amidst the pandemic.
