Same old story. The NK do not have any news because the Great Leader announced to Japan what they did and five returned. To shed new light on abduction at this time will essentially cast the Great Leader as liar. I don't think the functionaries are ready to admit this. The NK is stringing Japan to curry favors, just as the Russians are doing with the Northern islands.

The IWC member countries should place travel restrictions on Japanese government officials as punishment for ignoring their ruling. Why else have the IWC if you can't enforce rulings?

Miller deserves prison time in NK for being stupid. Maybe hard labor will re-orient his thinking.

As you can tell by now, the Islamic State terrorist are nothing but cowards and dogs. They are afraid and hide their face. If they are man enough, they don't need to hide their faces. Nothing but cowards and dogs.

Tokyo should cancel Putin visit. Man doesn't have anything to offer Japan; its not in his power to give the Northern Islands back to Japan. All he will do, as the past leaders of USSR and Russia did, is to dangle the carrot in front of the Japanese. Nothing good will come out of his visit. Tokyo can save a few yen by telling Putin to visit North Korea or China.

I hope the Chinese citizens are thinking on what they must do once Japan occupies China after the war.

I hope that Goto gets life in prison. The ship's captain and division officer should be busted and relieved of duty. The MSDF chief should take overall responsibility and resign. Make the MSDF take serious action to prevent similar incidents from happening again.

Maybe Tokyo should start drilling for oil in the Senkaku islands and hit pay dirt and pay for all the military spending. She can also sell more military hardware to allies. However, Tokyo should be careful not to give away all her submarine technology and underwater listening capabilities (which I am pretty sure surround the Chinese waters).

Put light houses and coast guard station on the islands. It invites trouble when you don't have anything on the islands.

Can you blame the cabin crews? Malaysia Airlines is on a bad luck streak. It just ran out of mojo. Best not to ride with the airline for the moment.

China, Iran, and Egypt should extend invitations to the citizens of Ferguson to visit their country and see the equal treatment of their citizens. This way, the Ferguson citizens can really appreciate the way citizens from other countries are treated. Please extend the invitations so that Americans can experience other cultures and treatments of citizens.

How can the Japanese government call the Kuril islands "disputed" when they lost the islands to the Russians in World War II? The Russians will never give the islands back to Japan.
