    What would be the motive for her boyfriend to kidnap and kill her and her sister?

    Cleansing of any debts that he might have to gangsters?

    Deviating quite a bit from their "compact Olympics" theme and promise which I think shouldn't have been made without honestly seeing if it was feasible or not.

    But moving some of the events slightly out of the 8km radius is fine I think.

    Osaka is mentioned conspicuously in the middle of the article. Why move events as far out as Osaka? There are dozens of available venues in Kanagawa/Saitama/Chiba.

    Taking care of "business".

    Don't know what the big deal is about. I do this all the time.

    Not only what warispeace above mentioned, but with the proliferation of "black kigyos" here in Japan, shouldn't Japan be promoting labor rights here first and foremost?

    There's seems to be a rash of murders being committed against the elderly lately.

    A 93 year old woman. Killing someone that old should buy you a ticket straight to hell.

    The dimly-lit wooden interior of his cafe, which sells nothing but coffee, is busy with customers sipping their 700 yen brews...

    I'm sorry but as much as I love coffee I can't ever see myself spending that much for a cup no matter how good it is. Even Starbucks feels overpriced.

    I do like the interior and feel of these traditional coffee houses and the coffee to me tastes great - rich and smooth.

    If they'd allow refills at half price, I'd probably frequent and hang out at them even more.

    "....the economy cannot afford the mounting costs from importing gas and oil, resulting in utilities hiking rates..."

    I agree with the above part.

    I don't agree that "nuclear power is essential".

    Solar, thermal and wind energy can replace nuclear.

    Posted in: The Japanese gov’t says nuclear power remains essential, saying the economy cannot afford the mounting costs from importing gas and oil, resulting in utilities hiking rates. Do you agree?

    That's heartbreaking both the father and daughter died.

    They must have collapsed from smoke inhalation or were trapped in a back room with no windows.

    It's hard to imagine not being able to jump off the second story of a house.

    125 horses died on Australian tracks between August 1 last year and July 31 this year.

    That's an awful lot of horses! I wish they'd ban whips in horse racing. Better yet, I wish they'd just ban horse racing period.

    He's doing really well. Glad to see a young, strong Japanese male tennis star near/at the top.

    I recommend he relax and get massages for the next 8 days before the London matches.

    His physical strength, timing, and game are all really strong and at its peak.

    He just needs to rest his body and come out swinging for the final chapter of the year.

    It's interesting that every new minister has to go up to Tohoku to inspect and be clued in to what's going on in Tohoku.

    Haven't these govt. officials already been up there? If not, shouldn't they have been?

    I keep hearing from these "caring politicians" that this is supposed to be a national disaster that needs immediate attention and action.

    I'd love to have one step in and say, "I know what's going on. We need to (fill in actual leadership activity here). Let's do this."

    Rape, kidnappings, forced marriages, and a life of slavery/servitude to one's husband (slave owner).

    The government needs to rein in these corrupt power cartels.

    They'll sabotage anything that's good for Japan if it gets in the way of their profits.

    After all, maybe it's the government that needs to be reigned in.

    First of all, I agree with the first poster that wrote that there are very few people who object to this video. I don't see "pedophilia" in this at all.

    It's just a fact. Young girls are pretty and cute. Teenage girls are also pretty and cute and slowly become sexier as they become older teenagers.

    This is naturally how humans mature. I don't hesitate to say if a young teenager is cute or pretty. They are. If a boy or a teenage boy is handsome and good looking - he is. There's no "pedophilia" involved here.

    The maturing of a young human being is a reality that many in the west have somehow twisted and become ashamed of. The word "pedophillia" has been tweaked and thrown around for far too many things and situations.

    The anime girls in this video are cute and pretty. Good. I'm glad Japan doesn't have a problem with this. I hope they never do.

    I think strict travel restrictions from affected countries is a good idea. Canada and Australia have done the right thing.

    I think the N.K. regime knows the fate of many of the abductees. As stated in the article, each time they promise to look into the matter they receive easing of sanctions to some degree.

    As long as they have this issue dangling in front of Japan's face the more leverage they have and continue to play cat-and-mouse with Japan.

    Unfortunately for the Japanese families that are affected they'll continue to have their hopes raised and then have their hearts torn apart.
