My read from her PC was that she no doubt made some cosmetic errors, but that her overall conclusion was truthful. Either that or she still is in a confirmation bias frame of mind.

Very poor representation of the US military and the US, and a great example of pure greed.

While falsifying data is unfortunately nothing new in university labs, my sense here is that Obokata is a scapegoat for a bigger issue at Riken. We shall see.

Laws need to reflect the changes in society. Minors back then rarely behaved in such brutish ways, much less, Japan rarely had suspects such as the guy in Kashiwa who simply was bent on killing people before the night was over. Today, however, we have all kinds of criminals across all age groups and the laws need to reflect these changes such as in California where juveniles can be tried as adults.

Ask any US academic what their globalization strategy is and they will reply along these lines: "X% international students with exchanges with X numbers of universities." Yet, the issues they are currently grappling with are among others inclusion of the international students. The only "international" they have going for them is their language, English, which comes as default.

As with everything cyberspace, there are some shady ones as well as some reputable ones. Then, you always have to understand that people will ONLY write their good points...so it is up to you to peel the onion to find their core.

Another empty claim with no action plan...for the sake of Japan and neighboring countries, I hope he does an about face with regard to his stance on nuclear energy.

What a big time cop out by the Pentagon chief. Where was such statements when China decided to unilaterally create their new air zones?? It's all about politics and whats in their own interests.

Inose actually had a pretty clean record for a politician and he did quite a bit during 3/11. From the outside looking in, this was a case of one poor judgement and going after the low-hanging fruit...you sell your soul to the devil and one day he will come to collect.

Very very unfortunate that Japan is responding to the regional territorial disputes in such as way...such actions can only worsen any future negotiations and eat up tax payers money on unnecessary weapons.

Most of the crimes being committed today are not by serial criminals, but by 'regular' folks who make impulsive and poor choices.

gaijininfo: on whose scorecard?
It seems to me that the focus of the Japanese airline companies is not their egos, but on the safety and well-being of their passengers. Having said that, in my scorecard, they (the J-airline companies) are more mature and matter of fact about this than how China is coming across--like children.
