On the second day of his state visit to the United Kingdom, Trump also said the National Health Service (NHS) should be included in any post-Brexit trade deal with the US.

"I think we're going to have a great and very comprehensive trade deal," Trump told a gathering of press and officials at London's Foreign and Commonwealth Office, a short walk from the prime minister's residence at Number 10 Downing Street, where the two leaders held talks in the morning.

"Everything with a trade deal is on the table," added Trump. "The NHS or anything else, and a lot more than that, everything is on the table, absolutely."

Posted in: Japan to keep pushing coal in developing world despite criticism See in context

The cost of building a power plant depends on which country, and the levels of technology and safety features.

Coal fired power plants $3,500/kW. 600mW plant would cost $2 billion.

Gas fired power plants $3,000/kW.

Nuclear power plants $6,000/kW.

The post isn't about the use of of coal, or anything else in Japan. It's about Japan financing coal fired power plants in other countries like Vietnam.

No. Here in Japan, you must drop other passports until you reach to 22 full years. Basically you are legally supposed not to have other passports. You have no idea on what I meant at all.

There is no actual penalty for having two or more passports. No authority checks.

How the heck did GHQ need to be there supervising or waiting for whatever Japan needed to do in the 1st place?

Japan lost a war, a brutal war. America was the main victor.

Nuclear power plants takes ten years to build and very expensive.

42% of Vietnamese power is generated by hydro. Underused strong wind power and solar energies. 29% is from coal. 22% from gas.

Total power demand is about 34GW/145TWh

Sad state of affairs for a strong Buddhist country and this week was Bodhi Day, December 8th, same day Lennon was shot and killed. Bodhi Day is the Buddhist holiday that commemorates the day that the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama (Shakyamuni), experienced enlightenment.

And Lennon singing give peace a chance. More like Lucy in the Sky.

Japan must write it's own constitution as a sovereign nation. Just simple as that.

Still requires a two third majority both Diet Houses and a majority in citizen referendum. Ain't going to happen.

Instead of providing loans for dirty coal fired plants built to the minimum safety standards it should be pushing clean energy technology.

And yet it is Germany not Japan that has thousands of Nazis marching in Chemnitz, killing politicians and voting for the right-wing AFD political party.

The number of the rightwing protestors were about 250, not thousands. No politicians were killed.

Posted in: Historical documents show Japanese gov't role in providing sex slaves See in context

Please tell me why the Nazis used "Military prostitites" but Imperial Japan used "Sex Slaves". I dare you.

You "dare me" what is it, a school yard?

In none of your posted comments have you even mentioned or considered that all of these women were victims. I guess that would be too difficult for you. You constantly seek to justify the abuse of the women by the JIA.

If a Korean women didn't have a say on her becoming a prostitute because she was sold by her parents to pay for debts then she did not voluntary become a prostitute. That is nothing more than human trafficking.

Because they were paid does not make them prostitutes. Human trafficking is akin to slavery.

I refer you to my first comment on this post.

The Comfort Women were all victims if not of sexual slavery certainly of poverty forcing their families to sell them like chattels to pay debts. Victims for having to sexual service many troops everyday. Not all prostitutes remain free from sexual diseases or pregnancy.

Do you not agree that the women were victims?

Hate incidents and hate crime are acts of violence or hostility directed at people because of who they are or who someone thinks they are.

For example, you may have been verbally abused by someone in the street because you’re disabled or someone thought you were gay.
