Posted in: Chinese foreign minister to visit Japan to discuss virus, regional concerns See in context

How is this for regional concerns: Mass incarceration of a minority, the Uighurs in Xinjiang, on a scale unlike anything since the Holocaust. Forced sterilization of the women. Massive population transfers. Organ harvesting and the marketing of tons of human hair. Slave labor. Systematic torture. The removal of children from their families, mandatory political indoctrination, an elaborate system of advanced-technology surveilance unprecedented in the history of police states. That should keep them busy. Lots to talk about.

Delay yes, but please make it a 10 month delay or a 14 month delay to avoid the brutal summer heat. This is our chance to right that wrong at least.

Posted in: Trump signs new NAFTA deal that could affect Japanese automakers See in context

The old NAFTA and the new deal (called CUSMA in Canada, USMCA in America) are far more alike than they are different, and the impact of the renegotiated agreement will not be that big. Last April, the US International Trade Commission found this version of the USMCA would create 176,000 jobs after six years and increase the GDP by 0.35% For comparison's sake the US added 266,000 new jobs last November alone. Trump's play is always the same; dissolve something that is working, call it the "worst deal in history" and then come to the rescue with something "better". His trail of destruction has left North Korea designing and testing weapons at it's fastest rate ever. Iran is now racing toward a nuclear bomb virtually unchecked. Putin is rubbing his hands at the chaos Trump has created with NATO. And on and on it goes. Trump is an idiot. He was a disaster as a businessman and far worse as a so called leader.

Abe should not have met with Mohammed bin Salman. He should have politely declined. The crown prince is a murderer.

Careful with this one Japan. China thinks, incorrectly, that Taiwan is part of mainland China. They will view these discussions as Tokyo/Beijing talks.

Great. Japan, a G7 country, now joins other progressive countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, Guyana, Tunisia and Sri Lanka in charging tourists a departure tax. Economically, are things really that bad Japan?

Posted in: Taiwan reunification with China 'inevitable,' says Xi See in context

Ever been to Taiwan? The people are very different from the people of mainland china. Hell, they even have different passports! Taiwan is a different country. The Taiwanese people have worked hard collectively to get where they are politically and most want nothing to do with xi's repressive china. They want their deserved freedom and need the countries of the world to stand with them in this continued pursuit. Taiwan is Taiwan and china is a bully.

Posted in: Nishikori, Osaka power into U.S. Open semifinals See in context

I was side by side with Osaka last year going through immigration at Narita. I recognized her and happened to see her passport. She was using an American passport. How is that allowed? If she is playing tennis representing Japan does she not have to be Japanese? And if she is Japanese how is she able to hold the passport of another country? I thought the Japanese government did not allow duel citizenship.

Anyway, love her tennis!
