In the 14th century.. Around 1424 china went into isolation abandoning their colonial territories and fleets. This happened after emperor zheng di died and his son took over. Sorry china. You abandoned them and went into isolation as a policy since then they became a japanese trading hub, then a war hub.

I wish this dispute was over korea saying its japans and japan saying it is koreas. Why do both sides say its theirs? Because their patriotic, really its on a cultural fault line and europe went through the same thing through their history... It would make sense that they put a disnyland amusment park for the both of them.

You know what this is like... Imagine you and your woman or friend had a scwabble year and years ago. You get amnesia (such as a new generation of people) after amnesia you changed over and started a new leaf and started to do things the right way. Then like a freaking a hole the friend or woman started harrassing you about something you wernt present for mentally and something that does not represent you entirely. You've tried to be good to them and hangout and be friends but they won't let it go..

If she is getting paid, and maybe by the yaks. She said that to keep her mouth shut and can expect to be paid for doing so when she comes out. Or she'll later be a victom of some mystery killing so they later don't have to pay her and have the fingers pointing at the public. ( I know its a stretch, but its what comes to mind...)

If the find her, an equal punishment would be to put her in a trash bin and let her starve and suffocate. If that was the punishment then people would know from the fear they feel from the idea, and not seek justification when commiting it on someone else.. Abortions are far far more humane.

So let me get this straight.. I've been saying this whole time (after careful research with an intuitive mind) exactly what Edano said? Hmm well that's because its the damn truth.. Noda knows it edano knows it, the united states knows it. Every leader of every country knows it. Who does not see it are those hippies protesting the restart. Safety is important don't get us wrong. But so is economy. Everyone is fed through the economy,.. everyone has a car through the economy... Manufacturing and heavy industry need ampel and cheap electricity to be competitive in the world market. Otherwise they can not exist. Working people provide money to commercial buisiness. It is all interlinked. What I would like to see is the liquified natural gas port in vladyvlastok finished and the japanese to start building solid oxide fuel cell technology; such as what bloom energy has created. You should all brief yourselve with it. :)

Nuclear is the way its going, whether you like it or not... Keep up the good anti nuclear movement so the government plays it safe. Can you guys even imagine a japan without nuclear, I can.. One with no industry, manufacturing or commercial sectors. Gain some scope. Remember, japan is dwindling.

Maybe japan can bring back the economy and save hundreds of peoples livelyhoods and make a huge military. With a 42billion dollar military buget and 3 billion going to washington to keep get ride of 9k troops from okinawa. I say pay your people and make a peace keeping army. A good country can not be dictated to by others.

Well, japan can't expect companys to manufacture at home and ship over seas... No company does that when it comes to mass production. Its not a company buy out. Just amped up production in china, by the chinese. Nissan still will have its japanese manufacturers. Just like the honda plant in canada or where ever. It good a japanese company will be expanding its reach. But perhaps more and more you will see operations and job brought there. But administration will always be japanese at heart.

I wanted to add black outs do not just mean the power going out, they mean machinery operation at peak ratings. And they will cause surges, which in concequence will cause wear and tear to equiptment. In the hundreds of millions.

Greed is the reason to have a business no matter how great.

Business... Corporations... There is no such thing as moral business and this is another example.

I just want to remind everyone out there japans 2nd largest world and by far huge economy and expendable income could be used for military purposes again and take those islands. There is still great ability in Japan and if Japan has more to offer russia, if russia gets away from those islands. Russia only wants them so japan doesn't get them. Stupid commie bastards.
