    I'm curious how these statistics would compare with other countries.

    It should be twelve years for each person he injured. He admitted trying to kill as many people as possible, so it should be 14 counts of attempted murder.

    Officials told reporters that they believed every precaution had been taken when guiding the officers on how to handle firearms.

    Bwahaha! Yeah, every precaution except rule number one! Never point a loaded firearm in the direction of people! I guess they must have skipped the first couple of rules!

    This article states they stopped using harpoons decades ago, but that was not the case in the movie 'The Cove', which was only a few years ago. They are still harpooning the dolphins and taking them to the processing plant alive to cut their throats and let them bleed out. If the position of these fishermen was factual and proved to be necessary it would be much easier to accept than their lies.

    Another point that everybody, including these fishermen, are ignoring is, dolphin meat has been deemed unfit for human consumption by the WHO. A recent survey of Taiji residents found upwards of ten times the safe limit of mercury in their bodies. What kind of an idiot would feed this stuff to their kids just to justify some BS cultural background? Give your kid cyanid and you face murder charges, but give them Mercury laced dolphin meat and you are expressing your culture? Unbelievable!

    What a bunch of scum bags they are! Many of these people do not want to return out fear and no real assurances it is safe to return, but if they don't go back they will get bugger all compensation! Sickening!

    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party and its governing partner, the Komeito Party, will also press local governments in the disaster zone to shoulder more of the reconstruction spending now being borne by central government, according to the draft seen by Reuters.

    Um, shouldn't TEPCO be responsible for this? What a great country! You can disregard safety regulations and safety upgrades, which cause the world's third largest nuclear disaster, but you don't face any legal charges and the local and federal governments pay for your mistake! That's just so awesomely unbelievable!

    This seems to happen every year, but I always see butter for sale in the supermarket. I tend to hoard butter a bit after reading about the origins of margarine. It was invented some 70 odd years ago and used to fatten turkeys, but they stopped feeding it to turkeys when large numbers started to die from heart disease. They then put some yellow colouring in it and sold it for human consumption. True!

    The Japanese Olympic committee and Abe lied about so many things to get the Olympics, including being able to cover the costs. It's quite disgusting that they have not received any kind of penalty for their lies and deceitful behavior. It doesn't set a good precedent for future Olympic bids. They first stated all the events would be held in Tokyo, which turned out to be a complete fallacy. They then went on to brag about the huge and fancy stadiums, which are now being downgraded and remodeled because they can't afford to build them. And, my personal favorite is, Abe telling the IOC that Fukushima dai-ichi is under control, even though it is still pouring thousands of tons of radioactive water into the pacific. It's all just blatant lies!

    @Ally Rustom - Why is Japan so reluctant to invest in renewable energy?

    The answer to this question is quite simple. It's because of the billions of dollars invested in their aging nuclear plants and they are not prepared to write it off. This is why they are fighting so hard to get them back online. It's not because of increased fuel import costs at all! The fact that, one nuclear disaster will end up costing ten times more than it cost to build every plant in Japan is irrelevant to them. Even a three year old kid knows that, if you play with fire you will get burned. Producing electricity via nuclear plants is not cheap! However, because the Japanese plants cut maintenance costs and upgrades they can keep the price low. It's Russian roulette!

    There are not enough details? Are you serious? The kid was beaten and left home alone. Whether the mother was working full time or the step-father was a bad choice are totally irrelevant! She must have known the kid was being beaten and that he was left home alone at 6 years old. Whether you bleeding hearts believe it or not, she is equally responsible.

    This article is a little vague and doesn't give any facts. There has been 18 people jump off the platform at this station in the last five years. The prime target is the Narita Express that rattles through the station at a 100kph. There was one women two years ago that bounced off the front of the train and into the platform kiosk putting five other people in hospital and badly damaging the kiosk. Putting up all these calming signs and TV screens, changing the ambient lighting and sounds are only treating the symptoms and not addressing the problem of why so many people are suffering depression and anxiety, which forces them to jump in front the trainsin the first place.

    The 6 year old kid was home alone when the cops came? It seems this kid's mother is no better than the step-father. One, she failed to report the abuse or protect the kid and two, the kid was left home alone, which more than likely happened very often. They were probably at the local Pachinko hall.

    Seriously? And, just last week, Taiwan banned Japanese food imports for mislabelling of food stuffs from Fukushima. Do the Japanese actually think the WTO will support their case? The WTO is more likely to put the same restrictions on every exported food item from Japan.

    It's interesting that they are focussing on the live dolphin trade, which is one of the most hated practices in the modern world. The WHO has deemed dolphin meat unfit for human consumption due to the high amounts of mercury, pesticides and other contaminants, but it is not enough to stop these wombats eating it and feeding it to their kids. Dolphin farming has been proven to be extremely difficult and unsuccessful. They state they want to protect the livelihoods of the fishermen, but if they do start farming dolphins they fishermen will be out of work anyway. Their whole argument is based on contradictions, fallacies and culturally biased ignorance. "Ignorance can be cured, but stupidity cannot!"

    “The purpose of Japan’s research is science—science that will ensure that when commercial whaling is resumed, it will be sustainable,”

    I love this! They are using a ruling from the organization that banned global commercial whaling to research the viability of commercial whaling. Commercial whaling will never be resumed. Why can't the Japanese just get used to it and stop wasting so much time and tax payer's money on such s frivolous pursuit?

    The article states they will put more focus on breeding programs, but what are they gonna for Dolphins until that happens? No doubt, they are just gonna buy them from other hunters.

    I wonder which species of whale the meat comes from.

    Japan does not need to import whale meat because there are thousands of tons in storage around the country. Japan's purchase of this meat is solely for political purposes to try to gain an ally in their continued fight to allow them to hunt whales commercially. How's that saying go, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend?" Or, should it be, "Birdes of a feather flock together?"
