Gaijin dilemna you have to get real, there are many well teained martial artists and gym goers. Policemen are not elite fighters, they certainly can be subdued.

This is not a big issue, the construction companies bidding for work are privately owned, there are more than enough to complete the work on time. The construction for the tohoku region is publicly governed thereby so called skilled workers for that project were never in line to build the olympic stadium, its a seperate issue.
Bid rigging and bribery is common because most construction firms here are connected to organised crime syndicates. Naturally they compete heavily against one another and are most likely prepared to call in favours and or pay officials under the table. Nothing new here.
The main thing is to build the stadium and build it well.

He isnt addressing whether he is meaning kearning about Jaoans aggression or the losses the home sude faced as a result.
Seems like he is indicating that Japan was the victim.

Meanwhe Okinawans watching events are increasing their anti Abe stance and standing firmly behind their new Governor.
Cutting their budget will only further alienate okinawans from supporting anything Tokyo proposes.

simply speaking the facilities at nagano are world class and close and already available.
it makes sense to move the competition there.
but we already know south koreans are grudge holders
and do not consider the spirit of the games.
Japan at least does.

I feel sorry for the husbands, seems like thrse women are spoilt. The one where she says japanese ate allergic to wastefulness is a classic! Japan is known as being the moste wasteful nation on earth with its ocerwrapping in double and triple layers of paper and or plastic for even the most common small item.

japanese police are notorious for not applying common sense but for being anal retentive when dealing with the public.
when it cones to serious crime syndicates however, they look the other way.

6 partners in a row dying within months of being with her? this just does not happen. It doesnt take much to realise foul play is evident as far as this evil woman is concerned.
She needs to pay the price for her crimes now.

im not sure but i believe purjury carries a light sentence in hapan if at all.
the accuser needs to serve jail time and provide compensation.
The man will have a hard time finding decent work and most likely will gave to relicate because a stigma has already been attached to his name.
