The full blown propaganda machine is on OVERdrive here.
Nobody here knows the full story. When you have 2 Stars like this guy you are very mixed up in politics.
Like a mob, you want someone to throw rocks at. Someone to spit on till your appetite is sated.
The truth is you'll never be satisfied. Some posters are already asking about the others. Can we feed them to the lions too?
This guy is a scapegoat, a patsy. He shouldn't be on trial here or anywhere.

Abe is destroying this once balanced economy. Look at the bailouts......free money......OMG there it is. Lets raise taxes too.. ohhhhhh and the proof is here.
I doubt this will be the last picture we see like this.
As Tokyo sucks all the money up and deposits that into it's coffers there will be NO baby boom.
No baby boom means......you have to import workers. Eventually those same workers will demand rights and marketing will have to change in order to attract the money of this new demographic. End of story....we don't want to shop at places like the one depicted in this picture. We want IMAX and a more international scene.
Old domestic Japan is going to die and Abe is your Kevorkian.

I do NOT in any fashion blame the U.S government for the heinous killing.
It was this individual and the terrorist organization that he represents who are to blame.

The guy is right but he went about it the wrong way.
"Charges of intimidation"
The government does that everyday. Just take a look at Hashimoto. Sing Kimigayo or lose your job!!!
That's intimidation. That's not a dialogue. Why didn't he get arrested?

Not all these things get reported in the news. There was one lady who gathered up a ton of cats. Apparently she had put them in a brown potato bag, hung it from a tree then treated the poor kittens like a Mexican pinata with a baseball bat. Laughing and smiling gleefully as swung the bat repeatedly until the bag went silent.

Coming from the U.S I can tell you first hand..."Police are to be feared!. That punch line "To Serve and Protect" is exactly how I'm describing it...."A line of BS allowing the police to PUNCH you to death" or better yet like this "Punch you full of holes".
How could this happen? George Zimmerman got off. So will this guy! Zimmerman was a flashlight cop at best and he got off the hook.
I understand why Fergusan citizens are chanting "war crime". Last I heard Osama Bin Laden was also capped in the head. He was a full-on terrorist. This kid deserved the same fate as Osama?
This won't end here. African-Americans know why this is happening to them too. They've been slack in regards to their civil rights. We haven't had a leader like Martin Luther King Jr. in years. Not sure if this will galvanize any sort of movement but people sure have their eyes wide open now.

Yasuyuki Kaneko: "This is a good photo. Mr. Ainu can you stand in the center here. Plus Mr. Navaho Chief here. Oh and lets get this Dodo bird in front of us. There we go!" Say Cheese!!!
One for the history books. Disperse now folks.
Posted in: Even if there are Ainu, they are no more than Japanese who are descended from Ainu. All they do is insist relentlessly on exercising their rights. It's absurd, and I can't explain it to the taxpayers.

Well, it may very well be the driver's fault. All the custom mods he did on the car. The real question is whether or not the insurance company is gonna fork out to buy this guy a new one.
After the insurance company dissects this Lambo wreck they'll find a number of unauthorized mods that may caused the fire.
Everybody feeling sorry for these guys but I'm just the opposite.
These guys break the law with impunity. They even post the videos online for the world to see but Japanese police do nothing about it.

There is only one solution to this! High school baseball should not be televised. If you want to take the business element out of it then that's what must be done. No cameras. NHK is in fact making a profit off the faces of young baseball players because there is no contract for image royalties.
At the core of this is socialism and mild aftertaste of communism. A star athlete in Japan is NOT his own. He has no rights to collect royalties from his own image being used in television. As the devil might say "You're soul is mine".
If Koshien could be shown commercial free that might be a different solution. Unfortunately we know that to be impossible. Sponsors would decorate the stadium with their banners.
I agree with the statement It's not education, it's business.

A future American war?
Pfft. Americans don't want war. We are good at it but that doesn't mean we want it.
"If you give em enough rope they'll hang themselves" I'm pretty confident that's what Japan is going to do. Japan is the only country since WWII that hasn't learned it's lesson yet. Germany obviously learned from it, corrected itself.
After 2 Atomic Bombs they still want to go back to it?
The answer is simple. The Emperor still exists! As long as he exists, things will remain the same. But things aren't the same, are they? Nope, not with satellites, stealth technology and nuclear weapons. Sneak attacks are a thing of the past. Cyber-warfare is also a new front. Economies can be destroyed with a brilliant key stroke.
Japan is ready for none of these things. When you pick up a gun....you are no longer a victim. You:re a combatant. You are now officially worthy of a targeting package.

Japan is not indefensible. There's no way it can stop an invasion of any kind. It can wage war but it would be invaded somewhere.
HEY!!! Where are all those complaints about American military? Oh wait.....I get it.....Japan could be stomped if left all alone. Look at what happened to Iraq when the Americans rolled out.
Japan: We better rethink our strategy.
America: Turns around and exposing a partial area of the buttocks. (Keep it real, tomodachi!!)

Please take this space cadet up there with you and send him out of the air lock. Attach a harness to him so we can see him drift about until he looks down at Japan to how much damage the Fukushima meltdown caused. Maybe then he'll forget about turning on those nuclear power plants.
