Galaxy not real opposition. but given that United struggled to beat even relegated teams last season this is a vast improvement over the tenure of that sad sack jock Moyes.

in 1964 Japan was a re-emerging economic power and the Games sparked a huge infrastructure development and "put Japan on the map". none of that will apply this time around.

I love hanabi. As usual in Japan though, too many people at these events. Need a friend with penthouse view of the river or tokyo bay.

Workplace in Japan is a pretty miserable place for most junior employees. society in Japan is mysogynist anyway - which translates into workforce.

Why is this so difficult? surely if ststes are so wedded to killing people they can just shoot or hang or give 1 chemical that kills quickly?

This conflict has its roots in Great Power meddling in the Middle East earlier in the 20th Century. the rights and wrongs can be debated going back a century or more. To look at recent events and condemn Hamas or Israel is to ignore how we got here and the genuine grievances and/or fears on both sides.
If there is any lesson to be learnt it is that attempts by the Great Powers (today the US is pretty much the only one, though it has its NATO lapdogs) to impose a political dispensation on another country or countries is doomed to failure - as we are learning in Afghanistan and Iraq and many of the "Arab Spring" countries.....

There was once a theory (think it was Thomas Friedman, so guess it was a flawed one, but anyway) that 2 countries with a MacDonalds would never do to war. so possible downside of Makudo leaving Japan would be that China would then be free to declare war on us.
