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.

These zombies not only are engrossed with their smartphones but often have their earphones on listening to loud music. Ive had plenty of zombies just plain walk right into me and ghen look at me as if I was at fault.
but at almost 100kg when they collide with me they learn an uncomfortable lesson, still something should be done about it especially in busy stations.

@smartacus you would be surprised at the number of women that take selfies of themselves in compromising poses and send to their lover.
its not only men that take photos but a lot of women do too,not everyone is as conservative privately as you may believe.

I agree with jwithers

that's correct the police only intervened after violence was directed at them, unfortunayely they do not take the same approach against right wingers, although it has to be said right wingers avoid violence against police and direct it against civilisns, of which the police respond all too lightly.
extreme left wingers though are increasingly turning up the violence... this is not good. Free speech is something right wingers are allowed to employ more freely than other groups also, which compounds the issue.

Very inhumane and disrespectful not even giving her a proper burial.

it should have been much more., agreed.

China needs to take measures to respect territorial waters that do not belong to them.
the fact is they are so used to taking whats not theirs that they now cannot believe they are ever in the wrong.
Chinese fishing boats have a ling history of poaching( theft) in Philippine, vietnamese, mslaysian, Australian, New Zealand and Japanese waters...
this is why these nations are now firmly behind Japan on these issues and firmly agsinst China.

Yes in Kanto area Saitama is the biggest prefecture
therefore its going to have the biggest amount of crime.
also less police to patrol this large spread out prefecture.
As city hslls have not increased police numbers here for years.

so you would rather risk an using an airliner with a sketchy safety and maintenance record?
I would fly ANA anyday over the two you mentioned.
the risk of being shot down is extremely minimal
almost non existent.

This is where the police are questionable in their actions, its the parents that should be arrested. whats a 3 yr old running around a muktistorey carpark? its very narrow with busy traffic and dimly lit, so yes its hard for a driver to see a small child running out of nowhere in front of him.
not fair on the driver here.
