    This is not oil-rich Iraq where Saddam and his sickening sons had built up their own personal billions. These funds are used to buy luxury goods and medical supplies for the top-level scum. The next priority is feeding their army. That's why the previous ugly fat pig who lead the country went bananas when the US shut down their bank account in Macau. There is absolutely no way their average poverty-stricken peasants benefit from these particular sources of revenue

    No kidding, hence my commenting in reply to your comment about sanctions. You think that, according to your previous comment, that they will matter, they don't.

    Hey Abe's been getting money too it seems. News is spreading about his Yamaguchi connections funding money to him. Go figure huh.

    Eating Fugu is like having sex with a aids contaminated person using a condom. You never know when things will go wrong.

    Not even close, and comparing them as well is in poor taste too.

    Actually, it might do, if the protest contained a threat to put some economic sanctions back in place. The despicable dirty, filthy, lying pigs that run that country rely a lot on funds sent home from North Koreans living in Japan.

    Protests and sanctions do not hurt the people in power in NK they hurt the common folk who end up suffering because of them. The common people rely on the funds not the government, they could give a crap about the people.

    Japan can revise her history and change her JSDF role, so is NK within her own right to do what she think is right.

    One big difference, at least Japan doesnt have nukes, and by your logic it would be alright for NK to use whatever means necessary to get "their" point across.

    It's got nothing to do with revising history, and your comments here are just looking to stir the pot.

    Anyway, back to Japan, and I don't see why people get so worked up about common sense warnings.

    Because with like many things here now-a-days people don't want to take responsibility for their own actions and look to blame someone or something else for their own foolishness.

    I sincerely hope that this child is found quickly and is safe as well.

    That being said in all sincerity I now have to ask how can any child just "walk" out of a care facility let alone one that is supposedly a special needs institution? There is something seriously wrong with any child care facility that allows something like this to happen.

    but even if they didn’t, manufacturers naturally want to protect themselves.

    If they want to protect themselves then get them right!

    Protesting to NK is like banging one's head up against a wall, all it does it gives one a headache.

    That's not true. And actually, if you don't use your TV to receive signals (ie - only as a display for a game console, or for a computer monitor), you don't have to pay.

    It had better be a monitor and not a TV. If the TV is capable of receiving NHK's signal one is "supposed" to pay.

    The Broadcast Law of Japan (1950) applies to all residents of Japan, regardless of nationality. NHK is established under this law as a public broadcaster operated on the basis of receiving fees levied fairly on all viewers. Every owner of a television set is thereby required by law to enter into a Broadcast Receiving Contract with NHK and pay the appropriate receiving fee.

    I do think otherwise, Yubaru. I think the person that wants to say mere words (BTW, freedom of speech is a constitutionally protected right) should be punished needs to demonstrate some harm that will justify it in utilitarianism.

    Whose constitution are you referring to here? Freedom of speech? You are really going out on a limb by calling sexual harassment "freedom of speech". You still condone their actions I see.

    Because in a workplace, you can't expect everyone to work around you. I think the prefix "Ms" is a good idea, but if people start losing salaries and promotions over not using them, I will scream. It may be no one's business but that's not the same as a justification to fry people whose worst crime is to be slightly more curious.

    Doesnt matter, men and women both should not have to be put in a situation where their private lives become fodder for the work place. Part of the problem here in Japan is that women themselves should be better educated to what is sexual harassment too.

    First, that's not the same as the scenario portrayed in the article. Interest in your affairs is not the same as hostility. Nevertheless, though it seems you are substantially affected, do you think your case is worth flinging demotions at your "native" colleagues?

    Actually it is, it is harassment, but people wont see it that way here because they dont understand what harassment is.

    While it's nice that he visited the area, the plot behind is not as sincere since its nothing short of what is expected of a royal to the subjects and common people. This is only all a publicity stunt to promote the future rise and roles of royalty and to let common people know their place.

    Wow, talk about jaded here.

    On the other hand if this is what it takes to get people not forget the surviving victims one does as they can.

    Covering one's butt here huh?

    The school, yes, they should have gotten more involved. Sadly, they usually do not in Japan.

    Excuse me? Japanese schools are the reverse,they get involved in ways that boggle plenty of peoples minds.

    Remember the countless stories where teachers sat on their butt doing knowing while fully aware that bullying was going on?

    That is something different and believe me it's case by case, when it is something that could embarrass or cause problems for the school there is group amnesia, this is different, the teacher tried over 30 calls and a visit.

    His friends evidently never told anyone in authority about his problems.

    I for one am glad that he visited there in the hope that the press coverage gives a reminder to those in the national government that have the power to change things are embarrassed into action!

    4 years is a very long time to be without hope.

    .

    I would like to ask the people around the murdered boy, "Didn't you notice any signs from Ryota that he is suffering and needs help?

    People noticed, but sadly nothing was done. The boy had been beaten up by these thugs previously as well and even went so far as to tell a friend that he thought they were going to kill him.

    Society, school, maybe his family and friends too failed him as well.

    Bad parenting, Tessa, or a lack of parenting in my opinion. A harsh society which has no room for those who are different or weak, and rewards the strong conformist. The boys that murdered Ryota need to pay for the hurt they have caused to Ryota, his family and to society as a whole.

    This is a heck of an assumption and often times while it's true it is not safe to automatically blame the parents for these guys actions.

    There are plenty of "good" kids from bad homes and vice versa, a bigger problem is society, and you have it wrong about Japan too, there is room for the different and weak.

    Really, so you honestly think it is reasonable for the woman or anyone to feel so harmed by a few words that it is actually proportional to a suspension (which in itself pretty much de facto fries all promotion prospects) or an actual demotion (same)?

    I am amazed that you think otherwise. You condone their actions by your defense of them.

    It is already a stretch to call a few questions about whether they have boyfriends and why they aren't married "harassment", and really says more about the women than the men.

    Why should it matter in the workplace? Ever wonder why the prefix Ms came about? It's no one's damn business really, and besides that there is probably a hell of a lot more to the story as well, kind of hard to find any coverage in any other papers. It's being sensationalized here.

    @Yubaru and NatalieB Genuine equality is not ensured by issuing disproportionate punishments to what are ultimately words, half of which are statements of fact and the other half are what can be interpreted as innocuous questions. Equal opportunity is not guaranteed by shafting men who at worst made a few mildly inappropriate comments.

    It is the person that the words are directed towards that matter.

    If we really want women in the workplace as equals, we do have to remove glass ceilings, but we also have to adjust indoctrination procedures to produce women that can take a barb like this (as if men don't take barbs in the workplace) without feeling severely damaged.

    You really dont get it do you? No one, man nor woman should have to face harassment of any type, your attitude comes across to me as if you can justify the actions as a "need" for indoctrination into the work place.

    It's wrong, and Japanese men have to realize, women too, that behavior like this is not to be tolerated.
