    The complexity of the disputed isles is well beyond even the strategists in both China and Japan. Both countries are trying to visualize every scenario in order to make decisions on how to proceed. Neither country wants all out war but neither country can back down. Right now both countries are operating off of the book of "Disputed Territory 101", Don't let your adversary control said disputed territory. As the saying goes "possession is 9 tenths of the law". The only thing to do is continue to play the game and look for a weakness that can be exploited.

    Sure... stop invading our air space and we'll stop intercepting you. How is China reporting this.... that they have been intercepting Japanese planes in their air space?

    No doubt.... so many ways to get irritated... especially when its hard to actually blow off some steam and relieve stress. I'm amazed at the low number of fights. But that said... I did ride crowded NY City Subways for two years and never saw a fight either. In NY... you tend to just keep your head down... plus you don't know if someone is carrying a weapon. Given the choice... I'd rather be on a Japanese train... where chances are quite low that someone is carrying an actual weapon. But I believe Japan will see an increase in altercations. Japan has changed in the last 30 years. People no longer think that "gaman" is a virtue.

    This is not about how the U.S. media giants control news.... it is about how much of U.S. News is reported around the world. When the U.S. sneezes the rest of the world will report it. So if U.S. Govt's foreign police backed say... a Japanese agenda... then the rest of the world would know it. The rest of the world would then line up to possibly advance political favors to the USA in exchange for things they want. The USA would then approach Japan and ask a favor in exchange for said countries to back their agenda. This is all politics... tit for tat.

    @MarkG... hmmmm... I thought the "consequence", was taking their vessel... or was I not being clear. Do you realize how difficult it is to bring foreign nationals to court and convict them? Not to mention the cost of keeping them in Jail. Better to just take their boats and send them on their way.

    Who cares? If Japanese were the International language of business and tourism then I'm sure Japanese would be butchered everywhere too.

    I think all Countries should pass a law whereby any foreign vessel caught inside another countries' waters without permission or for the purpose of poaching or any other illegal act... that vessel can be confiscated and its occupants sent back to their respective countries.

    Many people from the West... when they go on vacation to foreign countries rent cars or travel by taxis. I don't know about you... but, in my 15 years in Japan, I never came across a tourist that pulled up in a rental car. I rented cars all over Europe. And on the Taxi side... Japan's taxis are quite expensive. People probably need to see commercials on how easy it is to travel in Japan by trains and tour busses.

    @Toshiko... ah... I'm extremely sorry... I didn't realize that you were at every hotel in LV and monitoring all activity. Also... LV is a very popular destination for American tourists as opposed to SF, NY LA... which see more foreign tourists. But I'm sure you have your people there too... checking Visas for country of origin. LOL!

    Agreed.... on no... they're out of diapers and those dirty Chinese triad's are behind it. Its supply and demand... if the idiots at Merries can't make enough... import some from the USA for less than the Merries... I'm sure they'll stand up to Japanese crap.

    @Sensato... they're buying diapers, not nationally well known real estate. In fact Chinese millionaires are buying up land all over the USA... and guess what... that is great news. Just like I told people in the USA back in the bubble era... they can't take the real estate home with them.

    Yeah... I'm sure the Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Louis Vuitton and others would all cry foul if a bunch of Chinese tourists went to Italy and France and bought up all their goods. That was sarcasm of course. No they wouldn't... they'd be making more and hoping more Chinese would show up. What is wrong with this picture.... the Japanese company should make more of these diapers and if they sell out the stores should figure out how to get more quick.

    @Toshiko.... never mind... I'm sure your small sampling is extremely indicative of tourism and tourist statistics throughout the USA.

    @toshiko... you might assume you were the only foreigner but not every white person you see is an American. That would be like me saying I was the only foreigner visiting Nikko while many Asian's were all around.

    So for every Japanese citizen roughly 0.1 people visit Japan... or 10%. For the USA... the number is double that at around 20% and much of that might be travelers from Canada and Mexico that may not actually fall under the "tourist" category. But really... both the USA and Japan are quite far down on the list when it comes to tourists per capita. Australia is a good example... its a large island / continent, where visitors generally can only fly there. Australia sees around 6 million visitors a year while their overall population is around 23 million. So Australia's number is 27%... Italy is much higher but that is probably because people from adjoining countries can easily drive in and out of it. Also @toshko.... I'm still trying to figure out your logic. "US numbers is not as good as Japan's as there are 50 states". it is not about numbers of states... it is about overall population in a country. Japan around 125 million and USA around 315 million. What do the number of states have to do with anything?

    With all the weirdo's in Japan there probably is a black market for "used" skirts.

    Seems the right place to throw porn away to me... when I was a kid we were always finding dirty magazines in the local park.

    Love it... Penny was using a popular Japanese word... "bold". I think she was having some fun throwing it back at them.

    No doubt... a professional gambler should be able to deduct losses as long as he/she has receipts from a reputable establishment.

    Why... why so many of these family suicides in Japan? In a country with so much why so little hope for some?
