Darpa's research gave us the internet. Was that not well spent money? Yet now, Google, creature of the 'net, has been ordered to erase bad memories from their servers, by EU edict, for and by people who prefer to be unknown. Irony. Anyway, this is another great step forward, but to where does is lead. What will be the new creature as a result of these discoveries?

Ill mannered men do no good
nor help the LDP's many worthy causes, with this nonsense.
Grow up, lads.
Learn how to be respectful and maybe others who notice such things would respect you.
One of the quickest way to lose your seat in politics is to be offensive to ladies worthy of respect.
That's my 2 yens worth.

Japan itself was formed by "climate change", seismic ans tectonic shifting. So what? What legislation by man can alter the course of the wind, the movement of the earth itself? Trying to call opponents of myopic "climate change legislation", knaves explaining away something so obvious to "believers", is in itself beyond belief. Seas rise and fall, continents move, fire spews from undersea volcanoes. Quick, pass a law!

I hope they will discuss how, together with the ROC/Taiwan -- officially & diplomatically recognized by the Holy See/Vatican, Japan can help mainland China evolve and convert into a more peaceful, free, honest, respectful and democratic nation. Good luck Abe-san.

...there seems to be a penchant, among certain homocidal types in parts of Japan, for storing bodies in luggage and related places. Is this an outlier to the dangerous effect of the Louis Vitton craze among Japanese ladies?

The only Japanese territorial claim that US Policymakers say is 100% Japan are the northern territories, occupied by Russia, all the rest have weasel words, like, administered by Japan, per Jim Zumwalt at the State Dept, in charge of East Asian Affairs. Still, Abe's moves are seen as sound and welcome.

Unfortunately Obama tries to bully Japan into putting the traditional rice farmers out of business, but of course things don't happpen in a unipolar vacuum anymore, PRC relishes the chance to step in an exclude the USA.

So Obama said, I am really weak and unpopular at home with barely 40% approval, 60% disapproval --- and you, PM Abe are very popular by comparison...... well, at least on that part, Obama was quite correct. If thats really a good method of persuation to get Abe to start doing unpopular things as well, ummm, that doesnt sound like leadership, that sounds like the swan song of a lemming. Come this way, "concede" to me really unpopular measures, as I have. Oy, ve.
