    "McDonald's sucks"

    That must be why they're still the number one hamburger restaurant chain in the world with over 33,000 restaurants and there was a long line at my local McD's at 5pm today.

    @the Resident: No contribution to the topic? Re-read what I quoted from the article, then my "Thanks a lot, Abe" will make sense. Abe wanted to devalue the yen, no?

    "In 2008, 10 people in Japan suffered pesticide poisoning after eating dumplings imported from China, and earlier this year a Chinese factory worker was jailed for life for the crime."

    Was this one factory worker solely responsible for this?

    "Skymark, which reports its latest financial results later on Thursday, had on Tuesday acknowledged that the deal was in trouble as a sharp decline in the yen since late 2012 jacked up the cost of purchasing the jets"

    Thanks a lot, Abe.

    I'm against it - for me it's less money.

    "The IOC, under new President Thomas Bach, is currently looking at ways of reducing the costs of hosting future Olympics. Several cities declined to bid or have dropped out of the race for the 2022 Winter Games because of financial concerns."

    What would the IOC do if no cities submitted bids for the 2022 Winter Games? Would they beg?

    "The people who are fighting in Gaza today are the traditional descendants of the same people that have been fighting in this region for, at least, the last six thousand years. They are carrying on the true traditional heritage of their people and haven’t strayed far from the original plan. We’re just seeing the 2014 version, there will surely be more to see in the future."

    This reminds me of the Doonesbury strip where an Iraqi complains to an American soldier about an Iraqi from a different tribe who killed some of his family, the American soldier was aghast and asked "When was this?" The answer was in th neighborhood of a couple of thousand years ago.

    "Gaza is a fly facing an elephant"

    Yeah, but it's a pesky fly that keeps on launching missiles that have killed and maimed people.

    When the Hamas has been damaged enough so that they cannot launch rockets at Israel, and Israel withdraws, how about the U.N. send in troops and, if necessary, remove what's left of the Hamas mis-government and help with providing security for an interim government in Gaza?

    "Israeli airstrikes have destroyed hundreds of homes, including close to 500 in direct hits, according to Palestinian rights groups. Entire Gaza neighborhoods near the border have been reduced to rubble."

    Jeez, if only Hamas hadn't started firing all those rockets at Israel again this wouldn't have happened. Thanks a lot, Hamas.

    "In southern Israel, one person was injured and a house was damaged by a rocket launched from Gaza, Israeli police said. The Israeli military said more than 50 rockets were fired Sunday.

    Thanks a lot, Hamas, thanks a lot.

    "For Israelis, the quiet skies ended late on Saturday with sirens sounding up the coastal plain after Hamas refused to renew the 12-hour lull and began firing rockets over the border, one of which killed an Israeli soldier"

    Incredible. The Palestinians still haven't got rid of Hamas.

    "the victim, Aiwa Matsuo, also 15, was visiting the suspect at her apartment when the incident occurred at around 8 p.m. Saturday. The suspect, who cannot be named because she is a minor, was alone with her classmate at the time of the crime. Police said she does not live with her parents."

    "Tokyo issued a landmark apology in 1993—called the Kono Statement after then top government spokesman Yohei Kono who announced it.

    The statement acknowledged the military’s involvement in the coercive brothel system but did not admit the government’s complicity in it.

    But a tranche of the political right, including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, continue to cast doubt, claiming the brothels were staffed by professional prostitutes."

    Incredible. Japanese companies could sell so much more stuff to Koreans if only Abe would get with the program, admit this stuff and apologize.
