It's just Putin having a hissy fit because the rest of the world doesn't appreciate his aggression. No need to be alarmed, he's a paper tiger.

You have to wonder why they bother with this kind of stuff. She's pretty but I don't know how she got to the top of that heap or if it's even important.

OK, this guy is obviously a lunatic if for no other reason where was he going to run to? Open the door and jump?
Hope the girl is OK. Glad the guy is back in the US. He'll be locked up for a while.

I guess SK doesn't believe in freedom of the press the same way that Japan does. So "calm down" isn't a reasonable request. SK might deport the guy but bringing him up on charges is more like NK. But then again, she is a dictator's daughter.....
If I were the reporter I would head for the Japanese Embassy.

Might be a clone but only the pudgy Un can make baggy pants look so dang...baggy. Quite the fashion un-statement!
Whatever it is that ails him I hope he suffers as much as his people.....

the problem. Mr. Leung, is that neither do you have much of a chance. Your masters in Beijing are going to loose their patience and then you'll loose your job.

You would hope that they would dis-invite him but I agree with bass, Putin is laughing at all the spineless jellyfish.
Of course Oz jellies are deadly but we're talking about politicians, after all.

OK, that's one hospital to avoid. Not only did they blow the diagnosis of the guy they can't even keep themselves safe....
And yeah, just assuming a breach in protocol is a bit blase. Who will the next case be?

Well, I'd like to be above wishing ill on another human but the pudgy Un seems to be from somewhere else. So where ever his is I wish him and his cronies the worst.

Salaryman life is just a different form of boot camp, drinking instead of marching, do what the boss says unfailingly, up at 0500, lights out with the last train. It sucks, really. But it's conform or else. The Japanese military spirit didn't go away, it was just channeled into industry.

I agree that his problems are just starting. But the contrast with Phelps is interesting. It would appear that Japan has stricter scruples than the US does. Just sayin'.....
