"Neo Nazi thugs"? i find ir hard to believe that there are any Neo Nazis in Ukraine. Ultra notionalists, yes, but Nazis?

NO. And Bass, some of your views are really stereotypical. Is Japan MORE WESTERN (whatever that really means) than (say) Hong Kong or Singapore? and because Anime characters have big blue eyes that makes Japan Geopolitically more Western?

FINALLY! although I don't think Fergie shiould be at all involved in any future selection process. I say give it to Giggs/Cantona/Beckham.

Cultural difference between Japan and US. In US he more likely would have shot his tormentor (and a few colleagues to boot) before shooting himself.

They should have ditched him sooner. Even without the latest string of poor results he was clearly out of his deprth and losing his players. his transfer buys were also clesr eveidence of his uselessness. He will do well with some mid league team where theirexpectations match his ability. Man u should go for Kopp or even try a Giggs/Cantona/ Beckham combo.....

Shows what politics has become. Why on earth "Japan" should "care" that Obama's wife doesn't come is beyond me. what on earth does she bring to the party?

Japanese xenophobia will likely stand in the way of any mass immigration policy. always amazed at comments aimed a Roppongi touts and other foreigners in the hospitality industry. If they didn't do it there would be Japanese touts/ strippers/hostesse/whatever. reason so many in roppongi is that they are aiming themselves at foreigners so Japanese ones are less keen.
Pro's would be cheaper services, a more diverse and less blinjkered population and a reversal of the declining economy (if proper professional and educational criteria used as a filter).
Con's would be more competition for charisma man, possible rise in random crime and more obvious discrimination by locals,.
Posted in: The Japanese government remains cautious about addressing the population decline and labor shortage by accepting immigrants. What do you think are the pros and cons of Japan accepting more immigrants?
