With just about every nation in the E.U. in debt, the Union itself makes it difficult to actually address paying down debt, stimulating growth, and control immigration. I think England has done the right thing.... control your own destiny. I could not see Japan, not in the next 100 to 200 years at least, ever joining an East Asian Union of sorts.

The timing by the GPIF, just before the election, is somewhat suspect. However, that said, fantastic move. Japanese firms need to be held accountable in a major way..... the apologizing and slap on the wrist system is not working. A step in the right direction.

Good for him.... too many "hostess" bars rip off customers.... heck, hostess bars might be why he's homeless in the first place. Maybe he figured they owed him a night out.

I listened to both versions.... and I think that Led Zeppelin stole those chords.... the similarity and timing are just too close.

I think part of the blame should be shouldered by local police. They need to enforce vehicle safety rules whenever they see an offender. Like other posters have said.... they often see kids that are not properly restrained. The Police need to enforce this as fervently as they enforce DUI.

Despite the almost total failure of Abenomics which is basically a last ditch effort to award those with vested interest a pot of gold, the LDP still is quite capable of bait and switch with smoke and mirrors to totally hoodwink their constituency.

Heck.... just jump off a cliff or something. You don't care if you're sentenced to die but you are also kill people. The cops should have just shot the guy and got it over with.

It depends on what the scope of "public places" encompasses. Yes, if it is an area that is often crowded.... and no if it is a place where people normally do not come within 10 to 20 meters of you.

Exports to China will only continue to fall.... each month China gains more and more capabilities to produce what the Japanese do. The Yen continues to rise because, despite Japan being one of them most in debt countries in the world, that debt is about 98% internally financed. Japan needs to scare the rest of the world.... like Greece. Rumors of defaults and such might help.

Its not only you.... they know we practically gag anytime we read this crap about AKB48.... so they put the article on the site and are probably laughing as they do it. I'd probably do the same if I were the editor.... gotta have some fun.

60 similar incidents in Hino and surrounding areas..... I do hope that prior to his being caught that residents and schools in those areas were at least notified of the problem. If there were 60 incidents like that in any major city in the U.S..... it would be broadcast on TV for people to be warned and informed.

I think the Government should create a new foreign investment pension fund. Just print more and more Yen and buy up assets around the world with it. The Yen would drop like a rock once they found out that was going on.

As long at the entry price of the plug in Prius does not change much I think that amount range will be a very enticing sales point. I own Two Prius' and they're great cars.

@ Nemrut.... and where is the evidence? You say... factually, that crimes by military personnel are, on a higher percentage, more violent than the civilians living on Okinawa. Ok... do you have recent violent crime statistics from Okinawa to back to back that up? Heck, if you're right I will say he's right and shut my mouth. I've been looking but I can't actually find any numbers out of Okinawa regarding crime and violent crime numbers. Its one thing to make a statement but another to back it up with actual numbers.

@ ryukustriker.... thanks its good to finally have someone that first hand knowledge regarding Okinawa!

@Strangerland.... I'm all for the Govt of Japan asking for the removal of all U.S. Forces in Okinawa but to expect them to be perfect and never do wrong while there is fantasy. As others have pointed out.... overall they cause less crime per capita than the civilians around them. I'd hate to be stationed in Okinawa right now... to be scapegoated and treated as a criminal purely for political purposes. And you're one of those scapegoating them.
