    "I would like to point out that Japan’s consumption tax hike was originated as the bitter medicine to combat years of deflation and run-away spending train"

    And has this bitter medicine worked to improve the Japanese government's finances? No!

    "I live in Shizuoka, lots of eel shops, so I asked a few students if they would consider temporarily trying to reduce their own consumption of eel, such as only having it one a year for the 'eel day' in order to let the supplies replenish, so that the tradition can continue for generations to come. I thought it could be an interesting conversation topic. The answers were just plain 'no'

    Me first, lol

    "China was just busted by the EU for illegal exports, Japan being the destination"

    That must have been the fairly reasonably-priced unagi I've bought at the supermarket ( 980 yen for a nice big piece, enough to make two nice unadons )..

    Hey, where's the comma after "Welcome"? ha ha

    Hey, better "Foreigner" than "Alien," which is written on my gaijin card, ha ha

    Just imagine the sign on MacDonald's, KFC,..... etc. in Tokyo: "... are American culture! Welcome Japanese."

    oR, in nyc: "... are American culture! Welcome foreigner."

    Heck, most of the people in NYC ARE foreigners, ha ha

    Would Chinese troops on the ground be OK? The Iraqi government is going to need some outside military help on the ground...

    "And yet nobody seems to see just how much the USA of today resembles the colonial powers of two hundred years ago.. the very colonial powers that the US despised and criticised."

    What are you talking about, Frungy? The USA is not trying to colonize these countries, we just don't want these counties run by ruthless fanatics who impose their weird Islamic ways on everyone and cut off the heads of aid workers.

    "All the military power in the world won’t solve those problems. Obama knows that. Yet he is allowing himself to be drawn back into the very war that he once correctly denounced as stupid and unnecessary - mostly because he and his advisers don’t know what else to do. Bombing has become his administration’s default option.

    Rudderless and without a compass, the American ship of state continues to drift, guns blazing."

    Oh good grief.... I don't see Russia, China or any other countries doing anything to help the situation in that cesspool.

    "During its militaristic march across Asia in the first half of the 20th century, Japan operated coal mines and railroads and forced China’s last emperor, Pu Yi, to be head of a puppet government in Manchuria, which the Japanese called Manchukuo."

    And Japanese women of the time never protested this.

    "Chinese authorities arrested Yamaguchi after the war and accused her of being a Chinese traitor. But a friend produced family records proving her Japanese origin, saving her from execution."

    Wow, Japanese DNA really is powerful!

    "Cairo’s involvement in the coalition may help to soothe its relations with Washington, after the United States suspended—then restored—military aid when the army ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last year."

    The army wouldn't have ousted Morsi if he hadn't usurped all state powers and appointed himself the new Islamist Pharoah.

    The Chinese economy will eventually overtake the U.S. to become the single biggest economy, but there will be risks in investing there, Japanese companies are wise to seek out alternative places to invest in
