    Amazon’s Japanese unit described the matter as a private one between the company and publishers

    Looks as if Amazon took a lesson from the Chinese on diplomacy 101.

    The peculiar point to this case is that he was caught during departure. Narcotic insepction dogs usually check entry into a country not departure so why was he flagged?

    Another point is the so called Africans, where did they obtain the narcotics?

    Which documentary, staring Tom Cruise?

    The US military does not give Carte blanche to pilots to hotrod a 70 million dollar plane and more over create a possible situation for miss calculation. The rule of engagement in peace time does not give any tolerance and if you think otherwise then I suggest you test your own logic by pointing a gun at a police officer in the US. Believe me you would not want to know the consequences.

    Actually it's going to be called Hokuriku Shinkansen since the destination had been extended to that region.

    NO the PLAAF pilots were pulling off reckless stunts, doing barrel rolls around a US survillance plane in middle of international air space. Doing their job is when they give out warning while keeping safe distance to ensure safety of crew on both vehicles.

    If a US pilot did what the PLAAF did the person would be hit by the book faster then the jet the person pilots.

    The government provided a total of approx.120 million dollars US as support to this project in which Mitsubishi already made confirmed orders of 223 and another 184 in options. The planes catalog price is 50 million dollars US per plane so the company already has a potential of 20 billion dollars in revenue. I say the govenment made a very good investment in which they will gain not only corporate tax directly from Mitsubishi but also tax from the personnel working for this project and funnelled down amount from various suppliers and people in the pyramid that had support this project.

    Usually during the rush hours the female only cars are just as crowded as the normal cars so I don't have any complaints but if all the normal cars are stuffed to the ceiling and the female only cars have enough space like the one in the vid then I would probably ride the female only car as well.

    I wonder if this spokesman Yang Yujun was able to make this statement with a stern face. LoL

    Man of them are part timers waiting in line for someone else. The media and high profile writers employ a group to ensure they will be able to obtain a seat.

    One point Japan is the top creditor of the world for the last 23 years with 325 trillion yen in credit which had grown 9.7% from the past year.

    Failed business models?

    Please give me a break.

    I voted for disagree but if you think about it Islam teaches segragation between sex and burqa is only required when segragation is not possible. There are all female private schools so if the family really feels strong about their relegion then they should make financial effort in placing their children into those schools.

    Another point is Quran doesn't explicitly teach that burqa is required but only talks about segragation and burqa is only an interpretation of how this should be achieve in public. So it's not purely religious either.

    Posted in: In some countries, there is a ban on adults and children wearing religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools, recreational facilities and so on. What’s your stance?

    Protectionism by European nations started way before the actual embargo that made it very difficult to import and export the embargo merely stopped everything that was already a thin line.

    Selective amnesia?

    You're forgetting the fact that all European nations AND colonies adopted extreme protectionism policies strangleholding both Japan's import as well as export. On top they placed an embargo stopping the lifeline of Japan. It was a matter of push became to a shove to a punch.

    The reason why Japan entered WW1 in the first place?

    It was to re-nagotiate the various unfair treaties that the Edo Shogunate were forced to sign during the opening of Japan some 70 years prior. Japan was promised that all treaties will be renogotiated if Japan enters the war against Germany.

    Not just Vietnam but also to Myanmar and Laos. Both nations would appreciate it since currently they are dominated by PRC investments and are forced to act as proxies at ASEAN meetings.

    With investment injected by other nations they will become more independent economically. The two nations are also very much important in developing the Trans South Asian railroad going through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam which can be used as a bypass of the Strait of Malacca which is becoming overly congested with more traffic expected in the future.

    No matter how much you deny it, a military force for DEFENSE is a necessary evil.

    Sun Tzu preaches it, Carl von Clausewitz talks about it, Machiavelli and Jomini elaborates it. When all diplomacy fails you need planB prepared to ensure security since sticking your head in the sand is not going to solve anything.

    Although political matter is one of the reason related, the direct reason to why Japanese living in China had dropped is the result of drop of FDI as written within the business section.

    Basically many business is losing interest in investing in PRC due to various reasons besides political affairs.
