    she wasn't forced to do anything. she chose to marry, full well knowing the pressure that would be put on her and she allows them to control her life. i have no pity for her at all. even this dinner, just so happens to be country that her father was posted to. her last overseas trip was also there. some diplomat she turned out to be.

    whether he was on a one year contract or not is irrelevant, he was the captain, he had absolute power over life and death on the ship. he was responsible for and had a duty to preserve the life and welfare of his passenger and crew. he ignored his duty to save his own skin. while not pre-meditated, i don't think the death penalty is unjustified.

    stop messing around. they do it cause its profitable so make it very unprofitable. if they don't stop, sink'em. turn the survivors over to the chinese embassy to send home.

    it is too big and too expensive. would have been more interesting and keeping with japanese character to see if they could have somehow expand and modernize the existing stadium.

    is it worth the trouble to save a life? in the US, if you did the CPR and the patient died, you could very well end up being sued by the family for negligence. not worth the trouble imo.

    i believe rich chinese would pay the premium for a product that is not full of pesticides and/or otherwise contaminated by pollution. i certainly would prefer to not to eat anything grown in china no matter how cheap it is.

    Japan has almost no natural resources. What could China possibly gain from an extra 120 million angry "citizens" and a massive destabilisation of the whole region?

    no US military base to choke its access to the pacific and a free hand in S.E. asia to start.

    the company took a risk on nakamura. they hired him and gave him lifetime employment and the resources to do research without any guarantees that he would create anything. he must have signed an employment contract. if the employment contract said he was entitled to more, i'm sure the company would have honored their bargain. suing the company is how he honored his. and actually he didn't even create the blue LED, he just commercialized it. the other 2 guys were the real inventors. nakamura is just a greedy scab.

    all weapons can be used offensively or defensively. just depends on who strikes first.

    having the nukes would be a deterrent. it limits how far you can be pushed before you say screw it and there would be no "winner" of a nuclear war no matter who was offensive first. the only reason china has not invaded yet is cause japan is ostensibly covered by the u.s. nuclear umbrella. although i highly doubt the u.s. will do much more than complain and bring sanctions in the event that china invaded the senkakus.

    actually, potentially nukes would be perfect for defending the senkakus. 10-20 deployed by cruise missiles and subs would be virtually impossible to stop and enough to turn china into parking lot. if china ever occupied them, just tell them to leave your nuclear testing range or suffer the consequences. its in the middle of no-where so minimal risk to non-combatants or of fall out but sends a very clear message about how serious you are about defending your territory.

    Abe faces a tough decision by year’s end on whether to raise the tax for a second time - doubling the tax rate over 18 months - in a bid to curb Japan’s runaway government debt.

    raising taxes does not curb debt, cutting spending curbs debt. i would like to see an accounting of what exactly did the additional 3% in sales tax pay for?

    this is how all fights start. the chinese government has essentially told the HK people f-you and the HK are responding in kind. the question is who blinks first. unless someone blinks, this will not end well.

    problem is proving guilt/innocence. unless there is physical evidence/video, its all talk and difficult to tell if anyone is lying.
