Mie is a wonderful place to go hiking and other things.Beautiful coastline.I think the area where the summit is , is self contained hence making security easier.Thats all

seems he has been on a slippery slope for a while.Maybe not handling the retirement too well.He is bankrupt,divorced and contemplated suicide but watching his sons playing soccer stopped him.maybe a bit of sympathy to his plight.Just sad to see but plenty of examples in ex spots stars

Me too I dont understand this.Between this and the as reported 6 times overspend on the olympics are the old guys in charge trying to bankrupt the country?

This happens in Europe everyone is shocked but when it happens in the states the world just says " again" was told once by a mate who works for a multinational that when they are implementing layoffs they have to special consider armed security in only the US!! Too many guns but of course it will never change with so many good ole boys wanting there guns

not sure about this but the scots were shot down with their indepence vote once it wlooked like they might win.Then all the finacial people came out with the big guns saying how bad it would be.Was that to stop the catalans ,basques etc going for independence,Now the greeks are getting it.Im irish but the whole EU has become over bearing.If you dont agree with it they dont like it,Are we protecting greman and french banks here?
and of course non of those on the EU gravy train are in the slightest bit worried about their pensions etc.They are proably making so much on expenses for these vital meetings.
As they are trying to save money..how much will it cost to have greece go back to the drachma just in basic costs like changing ATMs parking meters and all the rest.seems like lunacy

terrible situation.Dont know if the leftist govt are been taught a lesson or is it that the other countries are fed up with their antics.I know slovakia for one were saying why did they have to pay for the Greeks when they had no money themselves.
will this now lead to chaos in europe with migrants swamping Greece,ISIS terrorists sneaking in, and general chaos.
But yeah a good lesson to Japan for the future, and if the markets turn against you not much you can do.
Bet you a lot of traders are revelling in this while the average greek is wracked with worry.I just care about the people!!

Im sure no matter who gets executed it is obviously grim but walking them through a jungle to their deaths in the middle of the night..it just me raelise how barbaric the whole thing is.But you cant coplain about the indonesians if you dont include the Americans.Chinese, Japanese and all the countries that still execute people.

Didnt NHK just get rid of the news watch anchor Kensuke Okoshi as he was speaking his mind about different things and not towing the official line.
Recently the 9 O'clock news is such soft prpoganda.The old poor old japan during the war etc.Sickening.And as mentioned that article in the Japan foreign correspondents web page where he say that any comment about Japan not in line with the govt is seen as Japan bashing.Japan needs to grow up quickly.They are like a spoilt child.throwing their toys out of the pram when they dont get their way.
