@ Jason Brown: Lets suppose that 20 years ago there was no looting after such natural disasters in Japan.... I mean, I never heard of any. Given that your a math guy, 20 years from now, if such an unfortunate act of mother nature happened again.... do you think there will be more incidents of looting per capita or less?

The good thing about what Trump is asking for.... Japan may actually take the role on themselves rather than pay a higher price. Okinawan's would be happy and overall it would probably be better for Japan.

Unfortunately.... slowly but surely, Japan's Culture of Honesty and Integrity is fading. I know, as usual, many of you will compare Japan to other countries, but that does not fix the problem. Japan needs to wake up in these changing times and prepare for the possibility of bad people doing bad things after unfortunate acts of Nature such as this.

Always a number of people that just have to say... well it happens in other countries too. It would be nice for once to try to hold Japan, an outwardly extremely honest country, to a higher level of integrity. The flip side of comparing is that it is defeatist in its nature.

I would think the most effective way would be to ban fishing for them at all.... but I'm a novice at this type of think so I could be totally wrong.

Based on, "cooperation not confrontation". OK, what is in it for Japan if it cooperates with China? Would Japan be treated as an Equal Partner if it "cooperates"? Reading between all the lines.... the bottom line is; Ally with the USA / West, or switch to allying with China? Considering that on an almost institutional basis, Chinese children are brought up with stories that would push them in the direction to hate the Japanese, how could Japan align with China and expect to be treated fairly? China wants to be the next Major Player in World Politics, Military Power, and Money, but they need more countries on their side to do so..... the question is, will those countries enjoy a fair, equitable and trusting relationship with a Communist country that controls the Media and Free Speech?

Bottom line, even if one of the 5 countries is designated to be manipulating its currency in order to gain a a further trade advantage, under the plan, the WTO would have to agree with the USA before it could impose trade sanctions. This plan appears toothless and is only there to placate certain voting blocks and those with vested interest.

Around the world and almost on a daily basis the U.S. Military is conducting humanitarian operations. Back in the 1950's when we took over the role you'd often read stories in U.S. Newspapers about those efforts. Now... so much of what the military does goes unannounced in the USA itself. I guess my point is.... we're not over here in the USA gloating over our ability... it is simply is done and little made of it. So just appreciate it for what it is, help for an ally in need.

Give up already.... they're just digging the hole deeper and deeper. Facts are facts..... declining and ageing population. They need to cut the budget and get realistic.

Not yet.... we need a more significant event where Japan and the USA have first shown mutual sacrifice and trust together before a meaningful visit could be made.
Posted in: Japan is asking U.S. President Barack Obama to make an official visit to Hiroshima when he comes to Japan in May for the G-7 summit. Doing so would make him the first sitting U.S. president to visit the city since the atomic bombing in 1945. Do you think Obama should go there?

Just over a week ago Japan passed laws that would allow its troops to fight along with its allies for the first time, and now, the highest ranking American will visit Hiroshima. I wonder, if going forward a Japanese troop dies alongside with an American in a conflict, will the U.S. President visit too. Sometimes we need to share new wounds to heal the old.

Interesting that the Conductor would need to inform the Driver of the emergency Alarm. One would think the Alarm would automatically go off in both the Conductor and Driver compartment's simultaneously.

Of course no one has the right to tell Japan not to do something within its own territory.... totally agree. But since when is Antarctica a Japanese territory?

In the USA.... the Federal Reserve is a very separate entity from Congress and the Administrative Branch. What that means is, under ideal conditions the Fed would not change any policy, dates, or rates, in order to influence any political race. That the LDP has the power to influence the GPIF annual announcement date is very concerning.

Almost every fund has losses.... that just can't be helped, especially if the fund invests in equities. But moving the announcement date to July 29th from the end of June or early July to get around an election... come on.

Well its a new Fiscal year in Japan.... its month one to start all over again extolling the virtues of Japan and the Japanese by the Japanese themselves: We're in for more.... Toilet and Bathroom Bliss, Japanese Cuisine is always on the Menu, Safety, Honesty, Cleanliness, Organized, Quality and On Time. Is the Japanese self esteem really that low that they need to constantly remind themselves of their virtues? Watch a month of nightly Variety programming.... I'd be surprised if they did not, more than once, allude to all of the above.
