    Here's hoping that the Olympics in Rio is cancelled, the safety of athletes and hundreds of thousands of fans is at serious risk. Sydney and London would be the obvious cities ready to take up the slack, and finances permitted, would run the best Games at short notice. Problem is I doubt those cities want it - in fact, no-one wants the Olympics any more!

    Really happy to read Murofushi is back to challenge for the Olympics! Always liked watching him. I will be tuning in and hoping the big man can go out on a high - you can never count out a champion!

    This is how right-wing governments with little concern for the environment roll, folks, especially in an election campaign. Many senior members of this dreadful Conservative government we have in Canberra - including the moronic redneck Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce - are climate-change denialists.

    Its unlikely ANY coral reefs worldwide will be viable tourist sites in 30 or so years - see them while you can (the Great Barrier Reef is spectacular.)

    Just pour some processed oil, salt and miso down your gullet and you can replicate the experience!

    I do like the sound of Mr. Trudeau - Canadians seem lucky to have a socially progressive leader, as opposed to the sea of rather nasty, conservative reactionaries leading many other rich nations. Kind of predictable that the media here is only focussing on his "ikemen" qualities, rather than anything of substance.

    Surely, however, you Canadians will have to give him a couple of terms before Trudeau is proclaimed as great, no?!

    @ goldorak - very well said. This issue is NOT an Anglo-Celtic vs non Anglo-Celtic Aussie thing, despite what jpn-guy is suggesting. It is simply the case that most Aussies dont tolerate fools and di-kheads claiming to represent them in sport - and Kyrgios and Tomic are shining examples of these dropkicks. As Goldorak says, Plenty of Anglo-Celtic Aussies can be added to this list of shame, for example Major winners Lleyton Hewitt and Pat Cash, as well as "Brand" O'Connor etc. All of them white, and dead-set knobs.

    Kyrgios is a grub and not even Australian in most of our eyes. Same deal for that bell-end Tomic. Both are just lucky to carry the Aussie passport. If he is allowed to compete in Rio then most Aussies will be cheering loudly for whoever he plays.

    Is Kei destined to win his first Major title? The bookies have him 5th favourite, at $21. It is tempting - he sure is in sensational form.

    No doubt some of the grubby old right-wing extremists here (my money is on Ishihara to be first) will soon be coming out in the press disputing the actual numbers, crying Japan is "being bullied" again, that these practices are "traditional Japanese culture" and the U.N. should butt out, and so on.

    This is a small step in the right direction - but there is no mention of just how many arrests of the human traffickers have been made? Let us hope there are many, many more busts and arrests.

    Rest in Peace. What dreadful, irresponsible and abusive gun-nut parents the poor, innocent child had. They SHOULD end up in jail for a very long time - but instead their rights will be defended by the lunatic right.

    @ 5Petals -

    "...A short history of Japanese war crimes"

    Short History? I think one would need to build a few bookshelves to house all those volumes!

    These professional moaners and leaders of a "victimhood industry" should show some gratitude to the President for even coming to visit - and be thankful that the U.S. ended the war.

    There will be - and never should be - any apology. The rudeness of these "leaders" is staggering.

    News is just coming in that the jet was making several sudden swerves before it plunged into the water. I think those people who were very confident a bomb was responsible may possibly be incorrect. More likely it was the work of pilot(s) and/or staff, a hijacking, or something else.

    Furthermore, the passenger list of nationalities reads like a rogues' gallery of nations, which is worrying: Egypt, Iraq,Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Chad and Sudan.

    Rest in Peace to this poor woman, what a horrible nightmare for her loved ones.

    These incidents involving US military and civilians are sadly too common down there in Okinawa - even one murder is way too many. I can really empathise with all the locals who want the U.S. personnel out sooner rather than later.

    I really hope this horrible old man goes to prison - but Im sure the usual deep bowing, crying and mentions of "regrettable" will be all that we see and hear. Good riddance, crook!

    I have heard from countless Japanese, Aussie and British friends that the U.S. side of Niagara Falls has a rather scary atmosphere and is filthy with rubbish, compared to the Canadian side which - they say - seems very peaceful and more beautiful. Just saying what Ive been told.

    All power to Ms. Nakahara - she is a strong and brave lady, and a hero. I hope the criminal scumbag Robert McLeod gets a very, very long stretch in a tough as hell prison where his type belong.
