Posted in: Ghosn's lawyer says Tokyo prosecutors lack impartiality See in context

Gosun took the loser of a business and turned it into gold. He was paid less then any of the CEO's in Car industry. Japanese should be ashamed for biting the hand that feed them. But this is not only the Japan story, There are so many examples of executives being pushed out of the way after they built the empires that others want to take over. Remember Steve Jobs or George Zimmer and dozens of others.

Posted in: Japan says N Korea developing warheads to penetrate missile defenses See in context

All the countries surrounding NK have attacked someone at least once, NK never attacked anyone. All of this neighboring potential attackers have missiles and weapons of mass distraction, it is crazy for NK not to want to have them to. Is like a room full of teenagers with everyone having a hammer except the smallest weakest one.

Like the Chinese, he mistakenly thinks Western powers have designs on his country, when in fact nobody would want it.

> When was it last time that the western countries did not want to take over physically or economically every other country in the world. South Korea and Japan are part of this western slave driving and exploiting "west" .

Posted in: Japan is still winning the Southeast Asia infrastructure race against China, with pending projects worth almost one and a half times its rival. Japanese-backed projects in the region’s six biggest economies -- Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam -- are valued at $367 billion. China’s tally is $255 billion. See in context

Tip of the hat to both, Japan is a avantguard country with long history of superior products while China is coming out of the cheap labor tunnel into the light of high level technology and fast project realization at competitive price. Both countries will keep getting ahead of the rest of the hi end pack.

Man that in recent times achieved better than all others tpo exec's in auto industry and took less than most others in a same position gets abused because they do not feel that they need him any more. It is not the first time but it is a one of the worst examples of a kind.

Posted in: Japan, Russia accuse each other of military buildups See in context

It is absurd to claim the need for Japan to spend all that money on military because of China or North Korea. It is the pressure of the Americans to have Japan put few billions in to the American war industries and help Trump to be able to claim good business achievement. North Korea can make a lots of noise but aside from being able to fire few missiles before being taken of the map they are just a good excuse for the warmongers to sell the weapons. China is a different story, they will do what they want to do and Japan is not going to be invaded, not as long Japan does not force China to do it. And regardless of how much money Abe takes from his people and puts it into American pockets China can level Japan if it decides to do it. Safest thing for Japan is to stay economically strong and independent and to keep as neutral as possible. Making friends with China is better than being American proxy in their Clinophobia.

If this is all he made and mostly from his own work writing few books he should be happy and proud of it. Unlike most of the millionaires he didn't get rich by sucking a blood of his employed slaves. With today's dollar value he is somewhat well to do but definitely not rich.

Posted in: Couples in first hearing on same-sex marriage say they are 'not special' See in context

the constitution should not be changed, what should be changed is the definition of marriage and a common law partnership. Marriage or getting a "Mar(y) by a man who wants to make a family, family is a family if it includes at least one child, is not the same as two people of the same or different sex living together in a emotional and financial partnership. The law should accord same duties and privileges to the any couple that register as a common law partners regardless of the sexs. Separately the Heterosexual couples after the birth of at least one offspring should be allowed the status of a family with whatever duties and benefits that carries by agreed laws. While I see a benefit of the child adoption by qualified couples of same sex I only see it as a viable solution if there is no opposite sex couples available because ideally having two parents of the different sex is better and more natural for a child. About being no different than the rest of the people? I wish that where but then I do not want to participate in heterosexual pride parade I would rather pride myself on my head than on my you know what.

Posted in: Is it terrorism? Post NZ attack, Muslims see double standard See in context

over last few weeks hundreds of christians slaughtered in Africa and the Philippines and no one is mention it, why do not the ones writing this article say at least something. It is now politically correct amongst the whites to bash the whites for political and media gains, but that will only cause more phobia and terror on both sides. When I offer you my other cheek you are supposed to kiss it not slamm it. Right now no one is asking Muslims to offer the other cheek but they should not slam the one offered to them as consolation. By pouring more oil on fire we are distancing ourselves from any peaceful solution.

Posted in: Australian senator faces censure for anti-immigration stance See in context

Here is the proof that immigration is a complicated thing; Over the years I read this news and comments and I see that most of the nonnative residents of Japan are almost always bashing Japan. So far for adapting to the ways and culture of the country they live in and enjoy the benefits of living in. Now look at the very amplified version of the same disrespectful attitude of the migrants and guest workers in any of the countries where the Europeans are the Majority and one easily gets to became phobic, meaning concerned, scared, but unlike the immigrants themselves, not hateful. There is the big difference between phobia (fear) and hate.

Posted in: Nerves fray, tempers flare as Venezuela blackout hits fourth day See in context

We all know but pretend not to know the truth about Venezuela, fifty years of huge amounts of wealth pouring in top the country stolen by the few rich and foreign interests brought the country to a despair where only one willing to try to fix it was pro socialist Chavez. If the country was not already going down the tubes he would never get elected. His socialism started off in good direction but it also encouraged few other indigenous politician in surrounding countries to get elected then the good old USA stepped in first by embargoes and financing of the opposition and by organizing industrial sabotage and then by causing global oil crisis, mainly to choke Russia and Iran but Venezuela was included in the plan.

Posted in: Safety of Boeing's MAX 8 in question after Ethiopian Airlines plane crashes, killing 157 See in context

for now it looks as the plane programing fault. If this pilot and co pilot had several takeoffs and landings of the same model it is unlikely they caused the crash. If the pilots are not properly informed of the possible surprise malfunction of the robotics on the plane there is very little they can be expected to do to bypass the faulty system.

Posted in: Trump says he would be 'very disappointed' in Kim if reports about N Korea launch site true See in context

for Trump, Abe, Israel and main NATO players Kim is the blessing they do not want to stop. He is the main enabler of their military expansion and unlimited amounts of the public money stolen and put in to the fortunes of the military complex. They know he is not a danger but they provoke him and make him look like a menace and by no means will they make a real deal with him, they are even preventing any further rapprochement between the SK and NK because the SK is the only country with genuine interest in peace and normalization between the two Koreas. To the contrary American and Japanese governments and militaries are in a great fear of this actually happening.

Trump was not allowed to give up anything and Kim was too smart to give up anything. Without Nukes Kim is on the road to Libya, he knows that trasting USA is worst then suicide and while NK survived over 50 Years under pressure and sanctions few more years will not change anything. Meanwhile USA needs as many excuses as they can get so the military industrial gangsters can keep their robbery of the American taxpayers and their theft of freedom and resources all over the world, yes of course including Japan.

Posted in: Venezuela's Guaido plans to go home despite safety concerns See in context

Venezuela's economy was destroyed by venezuela's elite and industrialists that closed factories and moved their business out of the country, they created big unemployment crises and that is what brought Chavez to pover. Chavez nationalized failed businesses and left them to the employees but because he was a native and a socialist USA embargoed Venezuela and made all attempts to bring the country on its knees economically and by financing opposition that sabotaged economy from inside. Then came the USA engineered oil crises that was arranged mainly to crash Russian, Iranian and Venezuelan economies. Maduro didn't create the Venezuelan crisis he just is not able to solve it, not under the Sanctions and domestic sabotage. USA wants to create another Libya or Iraq out of Venezuela and at the same time hurt the Russian and Chinese interests there.

Posted in: High risk of powerful quake in northeastern Japan within 30 years: panel See in context

"The science book that says building nuclear power plants on a very active part of the Ring of Fire is a monumentally stupid idea."

The truth that all anti nuke freaks ignore is that there are safer reactors such as "candu" heavy water type, but also that even the Dai-ichi and all antique Japan's reactors could be secured from security failures such as the last one. Water towers and above ground backup systems, just two of the many things that are missing. Safer reactors are more expensive but only in the short term. Japan can, if willing, do the things right.

Posted in: Number of new adults up slightly to 1.25 mil on New Year's Day See in context

Considering its size Japan with its population of 126 million should stop complaining about the population shrinkage, It should instead adopt to the trend and find the way to reduce the dependance on the manual labor and rely more on the robots and Artificial Intelligence. Russian population is slightly higher than that of Japan spread over the 45 times larger area and even if half of it is consider to cold it is stil 25 times more land for the almost same population. Russian population is also ageing so if the can do without importing foreign labor Japan can do it to. Another country to look at is Canada, with barely over 30 million on a land 26 times of Japan.

Not sure that Japan is eager to see them reunite, while there is a very small chance of NK actually striking Japan there is more chance that Japan would suffer economically of united and powerful Korea. Considering the current animosity and strong competition by ROK united Korea would be more than Japan is hoping for. Besides for the Abe NK is a blessing, all excuses he need to militarise.

Candu reactors are safe but no one wants to by them because the startup price is high. in the long run the are safer and cheaper because of lower maintenance and operating costs. CANada Deuterium Uranium, because it was invented in Canada, uses deuterium oxide (also known as heavy water) as a moderator, and uranium as a fuel. ... CANDU reactors can be refueled while operating at full power, while most other designs must be shut down for refueling.

Posted in: Dual nationals feel cast adrift in Japan See in context

It is probably because Citizens of Japan in the past were all Japanese nationality compare with many other countries like say Canada, USA and most of Europe where citizenship and nationality are often two different things. To modernize its immigration and citizenship policy Japan should separate the two, Anyone that lives in Japan or was born in Japan after certain time and conditions are met should be a Citizen and have a right to a passport and all rights and obligation provided by law. The nationality is a genetic issue and one can't become Japanese or stop being Japanese because of change of Citizenship or place of living. Native people of Hokkaido are Japanese citizens but they do not see themselves as Japanese. In Canada everyone is something besides being a Canadian citizen, in reality here we all feel very Canadian while having a lesser attachment to a second thing, a national origine. Yuki Shiraishi was born and raised in switzerland and she is swiss by culture, so I see no reason that she should expect anything from Japan simply because of her genetics. She rightfully holds a swiss passport but why should she expect to have a right to a Japanese one? All other cases mentioned are opposite in nature and merit the attention.
