Japans problem is not China it its marriage to the USA. Few bare rocks could be shared or had if it was not for China refusing not Japan but the USA. To China Japan is a competing neighbor, USA is a unfriendly arrogant invader from the other side of the ocean. Same goes for the Kuril Islands, Russia will never give a chance to the Americans to build their bases there.

For almost a year now western media has been loaded with criticism and attack on Russian vaccine development and ignoring any positive facts, they accused Russians of stealing their science while in the end at least two of the major western vaccines are made based on Russian research. Right from the beginning Russians were only source that disclosed what how and why they were doing in their vaccine research. And even after the western medical authorities reluctantly admitted that Sputnik V not only is safe but it is also one of the two best vaccines western political apparatus is still attaching it. Now that Russians are simply reprinting the reports about some glitches with the western vaccine, reports they pick up from the western own medias Americans are calling it propaganda. But this is a good food for Russoaphobes

It is so Human, so stupid inexcusable! Millions of children are dying world wide of starvation and millions are dying from COVID and other diseases and we are worried about Olympics, yes it is extremely human to be so illogical, all other mammals would be able to act according to the situation but not us.

In all fairness Japan should brave Ghosn as a hero, the man took a lousy inking car manufacturer and turned it in to a well organized and profit making giant and all the 20 years of service he took a compensation well below other chief executives in the industry. Then when they thought they didn't need him any more they threaded him as a criminal. It show one never to help a snake to grow, it will thank you with a poisoned byte. I love Japan for many reasons but wow I just can't forgive them for doing this mean act.

I think that all this is US propaganda since most of the government sponsored hacking is done by USA and Israel followed by UK. While Russians and Chinese private individuals and hacking clubs do exist the governments are only interested in preventive information collecting unlike the western governments that actually try to use the hacking as a weapon to interfere with the industry and research in attacked countries.

"Ghosn made millions working for Nissan, living in Japan, a good life." Nissan was resurrected by him, made billions under his command while due to the Japanese remuneration practices he was the lowest paid auto industry helmsman during his tenure. Like in the communist countries where the politicians got paid symbolic wages and only way to get something form their work they had to resort to corruption Ghosn was making up for his losses by manipulating his income but not in a criminal way and not in a excessive way. If they paid him same money as other car tsars were paid he would not have to dance around accounting and tax laws. Any business person will understand that. He built a paradise for those that forced him out.

first of all word Nationality should not be used for legal purposes, Nationality is in your blood citizenship is the country your life is integrated in to, you contribute to and benefit from. So being a German or a Congolese is your own private issue but having a German citizenship along with the Japanese citizenship regardless if your nationality is German or not is wrong. Citizenship has to do with your rights and obligations and in many ways dual citizenship poses a conflict of interest as well as it is often used to collect the illegal benefits.

He is right, why to sign up to something that can't be done. Nuclear equipped states will sign up anything that limits the other countries to procure the same nuclear weapons that the have. If we cant disarm the USA then no one will feel safe to disarm or to abstain from arming them selves. See what happens to countries without nukes, USA and allies bully and intimidate them and eventually bomb them and destroy them, like Libya, Iraq and Syria and Yugoslavia.

It should be implemented soon before to many people's lives are miserable for to long and depression sets in.
Because of its homogenous population and very low immigration this should be easy to implement in Japan.
"in Switzerland a proposal to introduce a scheme was voted down in a national referendum in 2016, with around 77 percent opposing it."
That is because they have a large number of immigrants and native Swiss didn't want this immigrants getting "free money"

biggest damage to the economy is done by slow long lasting procrastination which most of the sceptics and deniers ask for. Those that are only worried about their loss of money are ones responsible for that loss. If you do not want to do a quick painful but short lasting total lockdown than do not bother doing any partial measures that everyone knows are useless and expensive.

what is really a shameful if the fact that companies he pooled out of near bankruptcy are now going after him. This often is happening in a corporate world but usually the success builders are simply pushed aside. In this case they are really going to far against the man that made them successful and that while doing so provided thousands of jobs. If one compares him with all other chairs in the auto industries during the time he was on the helm one easily finds that he was comparatively undercompensated. For the sake of the country's pride Japan should drop the case and issue an apology.

Why is it so that everyone uses this comments to empty its soul of hatred instead of proposing something constructive. how about looking around the world and see what other countries and cultures are doing. Like how about Looking UK, France, Germany and the enforcer of the Japanese politics the USA. USA and Canada almost always use the Husbands name as a Family name and the children get that name. In Canada only province with officially enforced two separate Surnames is Quebec. So in Quebec we have no Family name and aldo Children can be named after either parent mostly the father's surname is used. That is not without problems and disagreements and some amount of confusions and inconveniences for the children. Some women use the both surnames and that makes the life easier. I think that government should propose but never enforce this kind of personal private matter, it should be left to each couple to freely decide what pleases them. While everyone is talking about freedoms of choices everyone is trying to eliminate this freedoms in order to enforce their choices.

If one really wants to compare numbers it should alway be done per Capita, Korea is one quarter size of Japan with somewhat denser population of 51 million while Japan has 125 million or two and a half time larger population spread over almost four times of space. All that counts in any comparison.

It is clear now that with the new administration coming in there will be a push for war like there was during pre Trump one. It is very likely that Syria will be reignited, Israel or USA or both will go against Iran and Belarus and Ukraine will be used to as further reason to attack Russia. So this hacking arrangement that may or may not be real is just a preliminary step in getting public and the world of puppet countries ready for the big hitt. America is killing it self from inside and the countries under its influence are all rolling down the hill with it, so they all see Russia as a big fat but lonely turkey ready to be chopped up and eaten raw.

with all the stupid and reckless moves Trump made there are two exceptions and most rednecks posting here hate him for that, one is he started no wars and military and the warmongers are not happy the second is he kept away from joining the bandwagon of fake news and accusations about Russia. Nothing that Russia does is hidden, they are being continuously politically, economically attacked and pushed into position of self defense and every move they make is open and publicised. So Trump tried to please the anti Russian hawks by sanctioning Russia but being honest about it, it is the business and we do not need to have false accusations to do our bullying. For thirty years now Russia keep calling America partner while America calls Russia Enemy.

there is no three ways about handling the pandemic, only two ways, do it like USA and Brazil and kill many to save some money while in the long run it will cost even more than if done the Chinese way, lock down hundred percent for the short time, lose whatever has to be lost, kill the virus instead of people and start rebuilding the damages. Canada, Japan, Russia and most other capitalist, bank and industry controlled countries are trying to invent a middle way and by doing so destroying both the people and the economy. We all know the story about trying to sit on the two chairs.

And China and Russia didn’t wait for final-stage tests before beginning vaccinations with some homegrown shots.
Each had 40000 plus study tests that showed safety and response to be at least as high, actually better than vaccine approved for use in the USA and Canada. It is all about politics and money. Western governments, western medias and their heavily brainwashed populations are Sinophobic and Russophobic while their own scientific medical communities say otherwise.

What is hypocritical in the cases of claims that elections were rigged is that no one dares or cares to ask how much truth is there. From Syria, Bolivia, Venezuela, Belarus and even USA it turn out that all this claims are simple lies or claims based on emotions of the looser. It is easy to yell FAULT! And for sure the western interests will jump on wit interference and sanctions because they want their loyal choice to secede in what amounts to a coup. In the case of Belarus, maybe Lukas supporters cheated a bit, but how much. He had no problems going in to the election and most of the citizens are worried about the change. So maybe he really won by only 70% or evan as low as 65% but I am sure he won. Opposition is loud but small in numbers and with to much foreign influence. It all boils down to a simple fact, it is about yet another country NATO wants to militarize against Russia.

why not strike a deal, have the islands owned and shared equally between the two. Something could be the only way to settle the Kuril issue with Russia, share the resources instead of trying to have it all. Problem with China and with Russia is the American control of Japan. Let Japan an island and right away it will be place for American offensive base. China and Russia do not need even more of the American aggressiveness in the area around their borders and shores.

You can’t accuse someone of mental faculty dysfunction just because he is is a racist Islamophobic.
reacting strongly to a viscous crime of murder and decapitation of one of his citizens does not make him racist or Islamophobic. I would have one terrorist hanging by every tree growing in vicinity of every mosque if I was president of France. As a good christian that poor teacher was suppose to turn the other cheek but how could he do it without the head.
