China doesn't start wars? Tibet would disagree.. so would Vietnam! After the West left Vietnam China took a shot at Vietnam and also got their buts kicked out!
I respect Vietnam!
I hope Japan does have the first strike policy!
I also hope Japan will take all the refugees when North Korea disappears from the face of the earth!

Most Japanese women have a lot of confidence. I think this article is drawing the wrong conclusion based on assessments. e.g. If 94% of Japanese women don't like making bread in a rice cooker then one needs to change their marketing techniques based on the different culture. One needs to know a little more about their customer.
Ford Motors also made a similar mistake during the early 80's. Ford was trying to figure out why their huge cars were not selling in Japan. The reason was because Japanese roads are smaller than roads in America and are designed for a smaller vehicle. Ah! Now Ford Motors had something to work with. Ford Motors did not assume that Japanese women were not confident enough to drive the larger vehicle. It was just too big on Japanese roads. The roads in Malaysia are even smaller... so one needs to know these things first and then make adjustments.
I think most Japanese women are confident enough.... and also polite enough to simply say "not interested" and say it in a nice way!

I am proud of her! Most girls would never admit that they were capable of lying.... and would have told more lies to back it up. Sorry to hear about the festivals being canceled on fear of the "slasher"! I wonder if she had some random guy picked out to blame for slashing her? I wonder what other stories she has made up? Does she belong to the drama club at her school? Does she already have a stalker?

He had a knife! Why is Japan Today not reporting this? The suspect came at the agents and tried to kill them.

God created Hell just in case his flawed creation did not love him back... but stupid knows no single religion or belief. Stupid infects religious nuts of all colors and of all races. Now having said that, may street justice prevail!

The poor bat! Being used is such a way instead of its intended purpose. All joking aside, I think he originally meant to kill her, but after the first swing, he really felt bad and changed his mind.... hence he waited for the cops.

Junk. They did this before. They did this with the playstation network. I purchased over $300 worth of comics to have them pulled and no longer supported by the PS network. Same ol virtual promises repackaged.

So, in Japan taking nude photos of kids is OK.. but taking photos of a grown man's genitals is not OK? I expect this from the Taliban.. not Japan!

I would look for security cameras. There is also the possibility that both are telling the truth. If the girl is suffering for PSTD she might be confused about who was trying to abduct her. Maybe she has been abducted before and therefore panics.
It would be very odd if the teacher had a clean slate and then all of the sudden attacked this girl. Both should be evaluated. He may have a split personality. I hope both parties use a high level of emotional intelligence to get through this. Also, the fact that the teacher stayed in the area.
