If she did really mailed it to herself, she knew she would have problems if the meds were to be found in her luggage.
Therefore, she knew it was tightly controlled.
In my opinion, she deserves what is happening.
I wonder what will happen if they find anything in Toyota office. Also, Japanese police is always slow to go search places. "We give a head start, OK?"

Let see the power of Toyota at work here. The common pleb would spend 21 days minimum in detention and potentially finally deported.
My guess is that nothing is going to happen. Invoke a honest mistake and released. In worst case, she'll get fired for having Toyota in the news with a drug related offense.

Turkey has done little or virtually didn't do anything to stop people crossing their border to join ISIS or to stop weapon shipments.
It in their interest to let ISIS occuoy the region and get a hold on the Kurds.
The Kurds are after their independance for a long time now and they are going to proclaim it once they have got rid off ISIS from their territory.
The West has been shy to help them as they want Turkey to help fight ISIS.
See a new war coming and the West turning a blind eye because they agreed with Turkey not get involved.
All we will hear is that this an internal problem, blablabla...

One sick girl. As a minor, she'll get a reformatory sentence then released in the wild again. She should be put down. It's not possible to have such kind of people roaming the streets freely.

Hmm... I find this rather strange. While I accept some people have cultural/ethnicity relations with the DPRK, nobody in their right mind would support this regime...
I wonder how many of them spent enough time there to happily celebrate the greatness of the Great Leader/Dear Leader and DPRK...

"The sermons were mostly about the importance of performing the five-times-a-day prayers in the mosques"
I wonder how anyone will fix anything they promised if they spend their day in a mosque praying.
" and women having to cover their faces and dress in loose clothes"
Hawkeye: there will be no raise. Just people fleeding if they can and the rest kept at bay with executions and other barbaric demonstrations. The West is not coming soon to help them. They don't want to give a boost to Assad. Only Russia has been 'helping...'

What is the strategy from the West here, now?
Get Assad deposed and then try to deal with IS? Another foreign invasion maybe?
It was very foolish and to finance and arm the FSA.
You thought our governments knew better.
Once there are installed and have destroyed everything, this is going to be really hard to do anything...
Countless lives wasted for nothing better...

“People denounce me, saying ‘Rubbish, rubbish,’ but these days relations between Japan and China have become worse,” the man says. “If a war were to break out, what would Japan do? It would need resources like raw materials, right? In such a situation, this stuff would be useful!”
