I'm not argue his story about two African is true or fault but all Japanese travelers should be avoid taken and carrying box or bag for unknown stranger especially from African man. Many westerner women and Asian women were fall into Nigerian conman scam and end up in the overseas jail. Some victims have face with death penalty and some victims were executed for drug trafficking in country like Singapore, Malaysia and Thai. These African conman are good talker and friendly. Most of them are living in Bangkok and have Thai wife. They are involving in selling stolen Pass Port and drug trafficking.
I believe Takuma Sakuragi - san was victim of African conman. I was wondering why Chinese Police and Japanese Police do not tracking down wife of one of two African man in Japan. Takuma Sakuragi -san should have asked what is inside the suit case and check it before accepting. However, I understand old man has no idea about this kind of scam and he did it with good faith. He will be probably died in jail. This is lesson for all Japanese peoples.

Don't forget the Chinese Nationalist soldiers killed thousand of innocent Burmese peoples in during the WWII because Chinese Nationalist soldiers thought Burmese peoples are side with Japanese. Chinese Nationalist soldiers will kill anyone who caught with Japanese military's accessories.
I spoke with old man about during WWII times in Burma.
Burmese peoples were tortured and killed by Japanese kempeitai military police because Burmese Japanese language interpreter accused them as British's informer or spy. They hate and scare Burmese interpreter and they called them as Maggot. Beginning of Japanese invasion was seen as liberator and friend of Burmese by Burmese peoples. Burmese peoples see Japanese soldiers as enemy when they saw Japanese military police Kempeitai treatment on Burmese peoples. Burmese peoples don't understand why Japanese army torture and kill Burmese peoples because they thought Japan was friend of Burma. So they fought Japanese army for independent. Japanese Government had broken promised for to give Burma independent and Burmese peoples were oppressed, tortured and murdered by Japanese Military Police Kempeitai.
Burmese peoples were victim of British Colony, Japanese military and Chinese Nationalist army in during the WWII. They deserved apology from British, Japan and Taiwan Government.

Japan needs strong military for to defend nation from aggressive neighbors. Russia has just invaded Ukraine. Communist China has occupied disputed Island by force. Psychopath North Korea President Kim Jong-Un is itchy to use missiles and nuclear bombs on his neighbors and US. Islamist extremists are thriving in Middle East. They want to convert the world whole population to Islam by any mean.
Don’t expect the earth will be becoming more peaceful place than now. You have to expect worst in future. You must be ready to face any kind of aggressions from all corners. The peoples who died in Middle East, Africa and East Europe are innocent defenseless civilian women, men and children. Don’t expect the aggressors will let you in peace because of you love peace.
Not just Japan, any peace loving democratic nations should be well prepared for to defend their own citizens and nation from aggressors. You can not build up Military strength in within days when someone attack your nation.

****Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas leader, promised to rebuild homes destroyed in the war and said Hamas would rearm. “We will build and upgrade our arsenal to be ready for the coming battle, the battle of full liberation,” he declared, surrounded by Hamas gunmen.
Does the world really need to rebuild Gaza? I don't think so. Hamas said “We will build and upgrade our arsenal to be ready for the coming battle, the battle of full liberation,”. Israel will destroy building which used by Hamas militants who lunch rocket from resident building.
There's no point to rebuild residential apartment building in Gaza where Hamas was controlled. Those new building will be destroyed again by Israeli Military. I believe those homeless family should be relocated to West Bank instead of rebuilding apartment for them in Hamas control Gaza.

The problem is Human Right Advocates are teaching Children and adults in detention center to how to depress and get preference treatment from immigration department and support from Australian peoples. That's their business and without refugees they don't have income. They have to change their professional. They should focus on saving lives from downing at sea rather than their income from refugees.

Government can't govern country with emotion and Government has to do its job by head. Human Right Commissioner has to do her job with heart but her job can't save children and adult drowning at sea. Human Right advocates’ action is encouraging peoples to bring children and risking their lives at sea. Tony Abbott Government has saving many lives if you like Government border security policy or not. UN Refugee Convention Charter was out date. Australia should quit UN Refugee Convention and should be doing with its own policy.

This is warning shot for Politicians who want to have Casino in Japan. There's nothing good about Casino for ordinary hard working Japanese family. You better to build amusement park instead of Casino. Australian blood sucker James Packer and other Las Vegas blood suckers are mouthwatering Japanese family's hard earning money.
Please, don't destroy your fellow lives of Japanese peoples. Needless to confess my experienced, being semi professional gambler myself lost half million dollars on Baccarat table unnecessarily because of my greed became out of control. Many Australians' lives have been destroyed by Casino since Casino was introduced to Australia. I don't want to see ordinary Japanese family suffer same fate like Australian families.

I believe his private security firm was setting up for expecting job from Japanese Oil Company which doing business in security risk country like Algeria where Japanese oil Company workers were killed by Islamist terrorist group. He went to Syria for to express prospective customers about his experience in war zone.
Majority of Japanese peoples do not know how serious Islamist extremism was. This guy is really stupid idiot and naive. Now he got really big problem in there. I hope ISIS does not take serious about what he talks to them and what he said on facebook.
I'm sure he was not ex soldier and he is just one of many wanna be Rambo in Japan.
