    It's a substance you place on your finger tip when pitching to stop the ball from spinning.

    I believe it's called a "Spit ball".

    Look it up in Wiki for more detail.

    That is after the war when Japan wanted to collect not before when Japan made the demand in trade for participation.

    I just read what happen in a similar accident where the captain and crew used the fire hose as a rope to lift the passengers to safety resulting to zero fatalities.

    Those were the terms made for Japan to participate in WW1 against Germany so no European nations made a fuss about it. By the way CHINA was a puppet state at that time.

    Yeah, the whale population may be big enough to support commercial whaling, but they is no market to sell the meat, so it will never be viable.

    If you believe in what you preach then let the market be the one to decide if it is not viable or not.

    Jim Beam is having terrible representation here in Japan since their exclusive sales agent changed so much through the years with a "dump the stock" bargain sales each time they change hurting the brand.

    Suntory used to represent Jack Danniel but lost them recently resulting to this move. Kirin by the way owns Four Roses.

    If nigelboy is right about the exclusive contract then just remove all mechanism to start the ship and have it tighed up in dry dock for however long they want it there.

    At the end it's PRC that is going to sweat the most with less transportation of iron ores into the country and the liability for loss is on PRC's hand not Mitsui OSK.

    This case itself doesn't have any substance since the plaintiff does not have any legal relationship with the two parties.

    The original case was between two corporate entities binding a lease contract. Unless the founder placed a special clause to include himself as an individual which I find very unlikely, as I wrote in the beginning the present plaintiff has no legal claim to the case.

    Talk about being Shanghaied. LoL

    Since the ship was commandeered by the Imperial Japanese Navy it should be covered by the 1972 joint communique. I also don't see how PRC has jurisdiction over this case since it occured when ROC was in power.

    IF Japan was called for help JMSDF could have sent JS Chihaya or JS Chiyoda Submarine Rescue Ship equiped with underwater diving chambers to prolong activity time underwater for the divers.

    Yeah they been doing that against Japan for the past 50 years but not make a long tour around the entire Japanese coast line with a long range strategic bomber.

    Russian's moves aren't really making sense since they want Japan to participate in developing Siberia natural resources. Pressuring Japan through military provications is not exactly the smartest move to negotiate for cooperation.

    Anyone that had done scuba diving will tell you that at depth of 35m you can only dive for about 35 minutes and can only dive twice a day at those depth in fear of bends no matter how trained you are. It's not whether who is more trained, it's about the sheer numbers required. On top the oil contaminates starts melting the rubber that is used on the gear like packing sealing the face mask.

    You must be kidding I don't know about the military but the Japanese coast guard divers nicknamed Umizaru train for this kind of situation and they were the ones that would have been sent if request had been made.

    I am sure there are plenty of Japanese military men who would love to have a war with China and welcome this installation as a potential beginning to more actual bases in the region and all a source of tension that could spark a war.

    The only ones wanting war are the ones that posts agreements in their armchairs.

    JSDF personnel are going to fight only to defend Japanese territory and protect human lives not because they want to or crave to but because it is their duty to do so. I believe it's called patriotism.

    Your analogy is a crying sh@me since all military people are the ones that desire peace since it will be their life on the line first when war breaks out.

    No the then Soviets acknowledged that there is a dispute when they offered two of the smaller islands to be returned and other two to be negotiated in the 60's to settle a peace treaty.

    By the way you much favored Potsdam declaration forbidden spoil of war to be taken so the Soviet's actions were illegal no matter how you slice it.

    Try to change the constitution (9th amendment) and now putting boots on the ground,

    9th amendment??

    Japan hadn't amended anything within our constitution yet, it's article 9. As for boots on the ground, they are Japanese soil and Japan can do anything with it. If it was the opposite and Japan even utter anything like that to PRC or ROK it would be like shaking a hornet's nest screaming "Don't meddle with internal affairs."
