    United Nations human rights panel called for

    undertake independent investigations of wartime sex slavery

    Japan had done various investigation and had found nothing to support alligation that there were any wrong done by IJA under law in those day. I believe that there was also a Korean scholar that did field search on this issue and also found no proof that IJA had any direct connections.

    Now all you support these so called "Sex Slaves" documented and verifed evidence that they were actually what you label them to be since I have not seen a single shred. Come on enlighten us or craw back where you came from.

    More to the point Mongolia wants more choice of partners besides PRC and Russia being stuck between these two nations. Japan was the most perferable choice being independent from these two nations.

    The deers culled to supress over population are not eaten and buried where they had been culled since wild deer carries various parasites. The shot gun pellets lodged into the carcass makes it worthless on the commercial market.

    One last thing, license to carry rifes are limited. Hunters starts with shotguns and after a certain time obtains qualification to try for rifle license.

    This problem is spilling over into Japan with McD and Famima importing Chicken nuggets from the same manufacturer. Both companies had announced that they will stop selling the items in question.

    I predict it is the beginning of the end of car industry as we know it similar to film camera.

    Smaller automobile companies like Mazda, Honda, Hyundai, etc. will end up either like Minolta and/or Kodak.

    Not quite since with purchase subsidies especially for new technology lowers the purchase hurdle which leads in creating a larger population of early adopters. This means critical mass is gained faster making it easier for the hydrogen gas suppliers to invest in more gas station which leads to a cycle of more people adopting the vehicle making it less expensive.

    Basically the chicken or the egg question is being forced to move forward through government initiative.

    LPG or Liquid Petroleum Gas is basically a mixture of Liquid Methane & Propane. On top Liquifacation is done artificially and does not come out naturally out of the ground.

    No Japan mostly use natural gas and not much coal.

    No NEC markets large scale batteries for home usage to store electricity. It was meant for storing night time electrcity to be used in the afternoon to utilize the low cost evening time plan but it could be used in the opposite direction.

    So many wrong in so many plaes don't know where to start.

    China can procure anything Japan can make from EU or even Canada. China might have to spend more and wait longer to get the same products.

    Yes but will hike the price of product losing competitve edge over items made in SE Asia utilitzing Japanese conponents. PRC relies on export so losing competitive edge automatically means demise of nation.

    SE Asia all together, its doesn't equate to half of China's consumer's market. And Japan is not the only player. China is extremely strong and influential in SE Asia as well as S. Korea. So simply by shifting to SE Asia is not going to cover Japan's losses in China. And the purchasing power in SE Asia is no where near what China can do.

    Nope PRC population that can AFFORD buying Japanese products is 1/10~1/5 the population so it is at par with total population of SE Asia. The Gini index for PRC is close to 0.5 so a larger portion of PRC population is at proverty level.

    Additionally, once Japan retreats from China, someone else will take Japan's place, mainly S. Korea and maybe even US. The products that Japan were selling in China will cease to exist because if Japan no longer produces domestically in China, Chinese will no longer purchase or the Chinese gov't can construct a policy to cause Japanese production sales cease to exist in China. One way is to suspend or refuse to renew your business license.

    This kind of action always backs fire and most nation becomes hesitant to go in thinking they maybe next. This kind of action hikes up risk index by nation for investment. PRC is already high up with the list with all the laws that makes it very difficult to pull out and/or return profit to their home nation.

    One example. If China labels Japan as a hostile or enemy state which will circumvent WTO agreements which China can stops selling the simplest things like vegetables and fruits or rare earth metals to Japan, there will be an immediate chaos much like the toilet paper and oil panic in 73. Its really that easy to affect Japan. That's how vulnerable Japan really is

    Short answer PRC can't, not now anyways since PRC needs to prove to WTO that Japan is hostile towards PRC and had suffered heavy casulities in a battle recently. PRC also goes against the peace treaty signed in the 70's with Japan.

    Basically the same doomsayer's PRC propaganda that is worth less then the bandwidth required to post .

    natural gas (LPG), which is a limited resource

    Limited? What do you think cow f@rts are or the stinch at waste water treatment plans are? Methane(natural gas) is a bi-product of fermentation and can be collected anywhere if they construct these places with that in mind.

    By the way Japan's energy dependency on coal is about 15%.

    You can also collect methane churning out at waste water treatment plants and barns collecting animal f@rts. Basically Hydrogen is a very abundant energy source that had been left untouched.

    None, zip,zero, nada. The government is NOT funding construction for this line. JR Central is funding it privately so they will not be hampered with government (polititians) internvention.

    I believe they are funding the construction of HSR between Huston and Ft. Worth as well.

    Do some research before bad mouthing. The construction of the system is not government sponsored. It is financed by JR Central.

    Strange, since no Koreans actually recall sighting of direct involvement of IJA in recruiting the comfort womens. No documents of it either.

    Inresearch labs they have already created a fuel cell that does not require noble mineral(Platinum) so the price of these vehicle will go down considerably within the next 5~10 years.

    Suzuki should just contact a TV broadcasting company and sign a contract for Miyazaki to travel around the world and report various movie production companies starting with Disney. That should get him out of Suzuki-san's hair for a while. When he comes back send him on a lecturing stint of what he found during his visits at those studios and compare it with what he had been doing at Ghibli. LoL

    To my understanding during the vassal state of Qing dynasty the literacy rate was under 10% and and there was no schooling system in Korean in the first place. The ones who were capable to read were reading Chinese not Korean since during that time Hungul was considered barbaric.

    Re‐recognition of Hungul occured after Japan had annexed Korea and Japan provided universal elementary schooling system.

    So which era did your grandfather live?
