Well, they have no other party to join in Communist China except Communist Party. I don't think its big deal for Communist Party. Peoples who join the Communist Party were opportunists and looking for business opportunity.

Difference between Greek and Japan was Greek Government borrows money from International lenders and Japanese Government borrows money from its own peoples. Greek Government has no chance of printing its own money as long as it stays inside EU. Greek has to follow EU rule and law. In some case, EU over-write Greek's law. Japanese Government was 100% independent Government while Greek Government wasn’t.
I don’t worry about Japanese Government’s debt but I’m more worry about US Government’s debt.

Greek was small country and it default doesn't affect on world economy except EU creditors. However, Greek exiting from EU will shock other EU members and realizing it beginning of EU break up. Greek debts problems won't be going away even it has repaid IMF's debt. Greek will have to bankrupt sooner or later. Greek Government owes total 243 Billion Euros to international creditors and also private investors hold about 39 Billion Euros Greek Government bonds.
Greek needs to repay IMF 1.6 Billion Euros on Jun 30 and €3.5bn to the European Central Bank on July. Greek Government also needs to pay around €2bn in public sector salaries and pensions every month. Greek Government has no other way out except bankruptcy if Government doesn't agree on austerity imposed by its creditors.

I will buy car with less electromagnetic waves gears in the car than nuisance electromagnetic radio waves in the car. These gears are distracting driver and it can damage health on passengers and driver. Medical scientists are still arguing about whether Mobile Phone is causing brain cancer or not. Car company should offer these accessories as optional accessories and let the buyers choose what they wanted instead basic accessories in car.

How US and EU nation will react if Russian has building it military present at their backdoor?
Ukraine should be stay as neutral nation between West and Russia. Ukraine peoples are right about ousted corrupted Russian back former President Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych but they were wrong to becoming anti Russian and pro EU and US. New Ukrainian Government and leaders have missing most important thing for their nation. It's good relationship with its powerful neighbor Russia. I believe if Ukraine didn't initiate anti Russian campaign and then Russia won't be invaded Crimea.
US shouldn't forget Cuba Missile crisis in 1962 which nearly war broken out between Russia and US. If Russian didn't build up Military power in Cuba and Latin America and then there won't be sanction on Cuba by US and its alliance. The real victims were Cuban peoples. If Fidel Castro had practiced neutralism for his nation and then Cuban peoples won’t be suffered for half of century.
It doesn’t matter whether Putin was bully or not but for Ukraine Government its need to maintain good relationship with its neighbor. If you’re hostile against your super power neighbor and you will get hostile reaction from your neighbor.
EU, US and NATO can not feed whole Ukraine or defense Ukraine from Russian. So US and EU must back off if they want to see peace in Ukraine.

China is most important neighbor and partner to Burma than US or other western nations. Burma needs to maintain neutral relation between China and Western nation. Burma should be avoided creating situation like Ukraine. No super power nation wants to see another super power building up military present in its backdoor. I hope Burma will welcome foreign investment from west and east and will give equal opportunity for all investors under NLD Government but she needs to sort out corruption problem. The corruption in Burma is big problem for new Government because the Military Generals’ families were biggest corruptors and they control everything via power. Burmese peoples said current President U Thein Sein was just puppet Government for former dictator Gen Than Shwe.
I believe the visiting to China by opposition leader Daw Aung San Su Kyi is good for Burma and China. China needs Burma and Burma needs China. The visit will be given chance to Communist Chinese leader to understand Daw Aung San Su Kyi. As far as I learned about Daw Aung San Su Kyi is she always standing firmed on what she believes and what's right for her peoples regardless of any criticizing from Medias and Human Right Organization. She does not hesitate to correct if she was wrong. She wasn't right or left wing person but she will do anything which can benefit to her peoples. Daw Aung San Su Kyi has unique leadership quality which Western politicians do not have.
Daw Aung San Su Kyi won’t be demand or request for release of her fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo via Medias but I believe she will discuss Liu’s welfare with Communist Chinese leader privately. I hope Chinese Government will release Liu Xiabo soon as goodwill gesture for Su Kyi visits to China. It’ll be great opportunity for Chinese Government to show respect to Daw Aung San Su Kyi.
I hope NLD will win forthcoming general election in Burma as Burmese peoples’ wish.

Nick Xenophon was pro-European and he thought everything made in Europe was good. This guy knows nothing about Submarine and Japanese Navy history. Xenophon said Japanese Submarine can't go long distance as Australian Navy requirement.
Honestly, ASC Pty Ltd former Australian Submarine Corporation and its workers do not have skilled to build hi tech submarine. The whole nation knew about that. Also if you build Submarine with Australian workers and then the costs and times will be double.
Japan shouldn’t build hi tech Submarine in Australia. Japan should let France and Germany to build Submarine in Australia with Australian workers. I bet they will miss delivery date if they build in South Australia and at least one year late on delivery date.
PM Tony Abbot, Defense Minister and Australian Navy wanted Japanese Submarine but Labor and senator like Xenophon want to build Submarine in South Australia by German or France Company because they though European technology is better than Japanese Technology.
The possibility of leaking information of Hi Tech Submarine technology to China or Russia by ASC employees is 90% if Japan has transferred Hi Tech design Submarine technology to ASC Pty Ltd former Australian Submarine Corporation. Japanese Government shouldn’t take risk by transferring hi tech Submarine technology to ASC Pty Ltd.
Also Japanese Company reputation can be damage if the Submarine was built in Australia.

It's not racist or discrimination to foreigners but it's business practice. Who will pay 80,000 Yen if they didn't show up?
If they have ordered course with like Ise Ebi Sashimi, Awabi Sashimi and Fugu Sashimi and then Restaurant needs to kill and prepare foods before customers arrived. If customers didn't show up and then it will be expensive lost for Restaurant. The customers need put themselves in Restaurant owner's shoes before they complaint for not taken their booking.

The Al-Furqan Islamic Center was in Springvale South and it was 10 minutes walk from my home in Springvale. I speak with my friend Muslim and his friends they are regular visitor to the center. I asked about their view on Australian peoples and Government. We frankly discussed about Islamist extremism in Australia.
They believe Muslims’ youth who were arrested by AFP was setting up by Australian Government and AFP.
He told me Muslims who pay income tax to Government was against the Islamic law and Muslims were setting up by Australian Government because Australian Government does not like Muslim. Also 9/11 was evil worked of US Government for to colonized oil rich Iraq and invade Muslim countries. They believe Australia will becoming Islamic nation and we should practice Sharia law. He compares birth rate between other Australians’ families and Muslims’ families. Average Muslim family has 8 or more children and other Australian families only have one or two children. So Muslim will become major population of Australia. I asked it’s what Muslims believe and he said all Muslims believe it. He invites me to come to Mosque with him. He and his friends from Al-Furqan Islamic Center are friendly peoples but their ideology was difference from other migrant communities in Springvale. No one has complained about the Al-Furqan Islamic Center in Springvale South because it was not Mosque and no noisy like Mosque. The Al-Furqan Islamic Center was like an ideology exchange center for Muslims.

The solution for refugees fleeing war torn African countries and human smuggling is creating safe haven permanent refugee camp in within their own country with full International Military protection. There will be lost of human lives as long as the refugees crossing the sea by unseaworthy boat.
Refugees host countries in EU were helpless because EU Human Right Commission has over written local immigration law. War refugees and Economy refugees will try to enter Europe as long as EU welcome with flowers and accommodation.
There's no question about mass migration of refugees have disturbing local peoples' lives. Also the responsibility for refugees is burden for economy struggling European countries. Building permanent refugee camps in within their own country is cheaper and save human lives.
It's impossible for to use Australia method in Europe because Europe is different story and different law. I think creating safe haven refugees city in war torn country by full Military protection is only solution for mass refugees' migration to Europe and lost of lives at sea.

Global Climate changing was starting from beginning of the earth and the warmer weather has contributed for developing of life on earth. There's no Global warming in last 17 + years as according the US firm RSS (Remote Sensing Systems) satellite data.
President Obama, Climate change experts, UN Climate change commission and pro Climate change supporters are ignoring actual result of scientific research and campaigning with their own delusion version of Climate change theory.
I accepted human contribution for warm weather but not by Carbon dioxide and other gasses as what Climate change experts said.
For example, if you have cutting down rainforest in your country and then your country will suffer from temperature raising, flooding, air pollution and drought because without rainforest no tree will absorb heat from sun and without rainforest, it’s impossible to cooling down warm air which carry water vapor for to rain when cloud was passing over land. The rainforest store rain water and prevent flooding.
Carbon and other gases in atmosphere do not contribute our earth temperature changing. The earth temperature has been changing since earth was formed. Climate change experts and their followers must accept reality and they must start new useful research for earth and mankind. I don’t want to point out how wrong their past prediction on climate change.
