    Should be closer to a 10yr US sentence -maybe 4yrs true Japanese sentence is appropriate if he serves the whole sentence and is not let off early. I appreciate this young sailor's honesty and hopefully he can get the help he needs in Japan's prison system. Initially I did not believe this rape was even possible due to the age discrepancy and circumstances (hotel hallroom location etc) = seemed very odd to me. I was wrong and maybe I do not understand this younger generation raised on computer porns etc = they are a different breed and mentality.

    As a society we need to better understand why these people rape/kill/drive drunk etc. They are damaging to society as a whole, damaging to Okinawa's growing tourism and population, -and also self damaging. These are young people trying to destroy themselves in the most damaging ways possible at their most successful and productive times = That is not good and changes need to be made to turn these people around and make them successful and productive.

    There are many islands in Japan without military bases and the people "defend" themselves fine. = Okinawa/US military bases not needed for defense of Okinawa people. You would expect more US military bases (and golf courses) in Hokkaido etc if this were the case.

    We must protect ourselves from the horrid Russian threat. They could attack at anytime. The whole island of Hokkaido must be a military base and a great Abe's wall formed. This is the only way to protect ourselves from the invaders. We must increase taxes to fight this threat while importing Russian CNG and oil. -The only thing that happens in Hokkaido is a Japanese fishing boat cheating GPS and denying they have gone into Russian waters.

    Nice to see Trump is taking responsibility for every political and economic decision now. I guess being President of the United States or Secretary of State are powerless positions. =The media and Hillary have already elected Trump -at least the UK still holds elections.

    A common European army would encourage America’s allies to take greater responsibility for their own defense, allowing the United States to more effectively implement more effectively implement Obama’s oft-discussed “pivot to Asia.”

    Only since Trump brought up Nato underpayments has Obama politically talked about it. Trump also talked about Japan paying 100% or reducing US Military in Japan/Germany/SK etc. Obama has done nothing, but is looking for political cover.

    I don't think anyone in Asia wants Obama's "pivot to Asia"

    Hard-core Libs/Globalists (war-mongers) always say that Okinawa will fall into the sea if the bases leave. -Not going to happen and the jewel of the Pacific and Japan will only get better with the bases gone.

    With people giving up the computer and moving to cellphone and tablets these companies like Line are an upward trend. It will be up to the users if they wish to monetize monetize(make profit for) this company.

    It seems they are in a much better technical and financial position now than 2-3 yrs ago -so the financial critism seems unjust. If Line can trend ahead and set trends it will do very well in Japan and advertisers will pay a premium for that service. Could easily be a gate for Japanese advertisers to go global.

    Most if not all of these financial entities are in "the City of London" which is separate from London and not under control of Parliment. So the real question is -"Will the City of London stay with the EU.?"

    An independent Scotland would, it was projected at the time, stick with its old currency, Britain’s pound, with national finances underpinned by an oil price then over $100 but now roughly half that level.

    -That's not true independence or sovereignty. Why not switch to silver or gold coinage and/or an electronic system.

    If it was a true apology and they were honorable they would pull these films where people were coerced or forced into pornographic filming.

    The bigger issue here is the US Gov buying all these guns and ammo for non-military purpose. =Why does the US State Dept need $217 million in guns and ammo? Secretary of Health $121 Million etc? And why don't the Libs want to talk about these Gov guns and ammo purchases? Enough is enough and these politicians need to start giving up their guns and ammo and give them back to the American people. You are literally talking ammo buys in the billions of rounds = enough to dry up the American ammo market for a time (manufactures could not make enough to satisfy the Gov contracts).

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that a total of 101,000,000 people currently participate in at least one of the 15 food programs offered by the agency, at a cost of $114 billion in fiscal year 2012. That means the number of Americans receiving food assistance has surpassed the number of full-time private sector workers in the U.S. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 97,180,000 full-time private sector workers in 2012. The population of the U.S. is 316.2 million people, meaning nearly a third of Americans receive food aid from the government.

    =There are more people on EBT than people in the private sector job market.

    -Trump has already steamrolled Hillary and really doesn't need the money to win. If the Lib media continues the negative attack ads people will just turn away and vote anti-Hillary. TRUMP can win with only a dollar now. The corrupt side of the Republican Party wants the money, but the Trumpers don't really need it or will use their own money. Hardened Libs just don't see it, don't want to see it, or can't stand anti-corruption party unity. Lieing Hillary will go down just like Lieing Ted Cruz and his "pathetic alliance".

    One of the large problems with Chicago politics is that the corrupt judicial system lets many of the arrested gun criminals go. = The gun laws are not taken seriously and police arrest the same people over and over. This makes the Police's job more difficult and reduces Police morale. I would prosecute these gun criminals publically and logistically = this would put more pressure on the Lib judges to uphold the gun laws.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — In the wake of another bloody weekend in Chicago, police said they have seized more than 4,200 guns this year – more than one per hour. Police said nearly 100 guns were taken off the streets on Father’s Day weekend alone. At least 13 people were killed and more than 40 others were wounded in shootings over the same weekend.

    It is better for Hillary to just openly lie about the whole ordeal (didn't she learn from Bill?) and for her staff to not say anything (take the 5th). After losing to Barrack Hussein Obama 8yrs ago she was done and had no chance. Humpty-Dumpty has fallen off the wall. -all that foreign cash cannot help her now. She should just take the money and run.

    Business is 24/7 global now with automation. = You need employees and machines that can fill those 24 hours each day 7 days a week and have multiple language capability (polyglots). = Your business may need more workers at a certain times to entertain consumers 1/2 way around the World. Having people at home servicing these people for the bumps in business will become a necessity. =So more flexibility for 24/7 service makes sense.

    I like the idea of undercover Women on these trains making groping et al arrests. -Japan should be doing that. But as a whole people can use their phones to video and send in the info.

    HIllary seems pretty dodgy these days. Hasn't had a press conference since 2015 etc. Does she really think she can debate Trump? Even with the media 99% on her side -the bets are she will lose the debate. -If she even make it to the debate.
