Too many old men stealing girl undies in Japan. Why can't they just go to a department store and buy girl's panties?

No surprise here. Said before, best to kick Japan out of the TPP talk. No way Japan will do away with the agricultural subsidy. The Farm Lobby has the politicians by the short hair.

I am certain that the Philippines will welcome the US military back. I see the US Navy going back to Subic Bay and perhaps even allow former Clark AB to be used by the US Air Force. The the Army's Green Berets are there now on a rotation basis and joint training taking place. China would never attempted some of the outlandish actions if the US military did not leave the Philippines.

Kick Japan out of the TPP talks. Should never invited Japan in the first place. We all know that the Japanese government will keep on with the farm subsidy. The farmers have the politicians by the short hair and things aren't going to chance any time soon.

What are the young men doing, masturbating? You would think that the young adults are having sex just about every night; I was at that age.

Pollard is a traitor who should have been hung instead of life in prison. The Israelis are scheming to get Pollard free and the Obama administration is being led down the path of ignorance by the so called Jewish friends. I do not trust the Israelis. Where are the politicians on the Hill when we need them to stop this charade? Do not free Pollard.

Well, there goes the northern Pacific whales. I am almost certain that the Japanese will clean out the Bonin Islands whales as well as around Marcus Island. Tis' a shame that few old Japanese men still insist on whale sashimi. May the gods punish Japan by making the their fishing grounds barren.

The Tokyo's response to whale hunting as research is just a front for the few old men who still insist on eating whale meat. Its like the Mafia with the store and restaurant fronts to hide the real business. Japanese researchers must be the world's most ignorant and stupid guys and gals if they couldn't find out what is killing the whales after all these years of research. Three cheers for the world court!!!

See, I knew this was going to happen the moment the Japan asked to join the TPP talks. I stated then that it was a mistake by the Pacific rim countries to involve Japan in any free trade agreement. We all know, and the Japanese farmers know, that Tokyo will not cut out agriculture subsidy. Knowing that, why in the world would anyone invite Japan to a free trade market?

So China is finally condemning Russian's takeover of Crimea. Chinese FM Hong Lei fell into PM Abe's trap by admitting comparing the contested island issue with the Crimea takeover is not the same; i.e., what Russia did was wrong.

Maybe the newly connected Nishinoshima won't disappear under the waves like others. I remember my dad telling me that new isles disappeared previously. I also remember seeing a slightly yellowish (?) colored sea water not far from Welcome Rock on Chi Chi Jima. I was thinking that the megma must be fairly close to the ocean floor.

Korea and Japan do not have a common denominator to pursue mutual beneficial interest. Korea is leaning towards China; seeking to contain North Korea's behavior and a bigger share of China's consumer market. Japan and Korea should each go their own way.

I don't think Japan could afford these loans and aid at this time. Maybe the PM could ask his counterpart in China to dip into their pocket to help out Ukraine.

Marubeni at it again. Easy to compare Marubeni Corp. to a Mexican drug cartel; they both corrupt the poor with endless cash.
