I hope they get the contract. Japan lost out on the bullet train contract, that countries mistake. Hope Australia doesn't make the same kind of mistake.

Not true at all juveniles here in Japan serve time in juvenile hall and are released at their time of turning to adulthood. Unless tried as an adult and given an adult sentence which then changes. For example the juvenile who beheaded two elementary students and left the heads at the school gates only served time for a few years. He has been since released and relocated and now lives with a new name in an undisclosed location. Neighbors not ever knowing they live next to a child murderer. Japan seems fond of releasing these quote unquote children back into society. Children can be just as monstrous as any adult.

Absolutely without a doubt the same style of information should be let known as in the states. Convicted murders of any age should be public knowledge when they move next to you or in your apartment building it should be required that the surrounding neighbors be let know. I had hosted two detectives in an exchange program from the Kumamoto prefecture with the Missoula county sherrifs office. We had this very same discussion, when I showed them the violent offender online registration program anyone has access to they were absolutely stunned and amazed that kind of knowledge was public. Their reasoning as to why Japan does not do it is to protect the well being of the surrounding people not causing undo stress with the knowledge and to also allow the individual the privacy of getting on with their life. I was also let know that the police monitor violent offenders for the rest of their adult lives on the cost of the tax payers. I can say that we had different views of what were the rights of others versus the rights of the convicted criminals.

Seriously doubt anyone has a pig sticker they walk around with here in Japan, one accidental curious police officer away from a pretty serious offense and from a foreigner would not help the situation.

If American car makers made something that Japanese wanted then maybe they would buy. These guys are just whining that no one wants their inferior or useless product in japan. What maybe fine in montana may not be even useful in japan. Boo hoo ford.

I applaud this and the learning experience it gives. People are too disconnected to their food source, when you learn what is involved it means a lot more. No animal should be needlessly harmed in a cruel fashion but everything eats something else as stated before it is the nature of the beast. I am against killing for pleasure like so many do in my home state but do not mind keeping a needed balance and needing to eat.

For its time it was a very good aircraft, excellent engineering from Japan with a top notch German engineered engine.

Good on japan, no need to suck up to those who whine "we do it so you have to too". If they bring nothing to japan why should they be allowed in? Japan does not need to be the Germany of asia.
