Sorry, I haven't bought the whales for a while since I'm trying Italian cheese but the prices still too high. If they can turn the cheese price better, then I can think about replace part of my appetite :)
Ohhh..... the tax prices from 5 to 8% will turn hard to get the whales meat. Perhaps they can reduce the prices catching more!!

This issue is different, they will certainly return the islands back since there is almost no people living on it after an earthquake.

Well, past is past and it is dead. There is nothing to do more than the country did.
Now the situation is different and the country needs to increase self protection abilities.
I now only buy Sony mobile phones since it is becoming better every day.

Well, if Japan become Russian economic partner, it will also benefit USA in a long term.
By the way, I afraid, Ukraine will be divided in two countries by their own referendum. West can join EU and East can even join Russia. If they are unhappy together, it maybe wise to split but it has to be done by their own people decision since Nato may decide to do intervention and cause a new cold war!

Ignore the blind people and turn on the reactors. High amount of public taxes evaporates keeping these plants off!

Don't need to be worried. This power plant is not located near the ocean.
Just turn off plants near the ocean and turn on the remaining. It has billion of dollars of public tax invested.

I'm happy to see that EUA is in the Japanese side and also hope that Russia will do the same. China is not only dangerous to Japan and all countries in Pacific but also dangerous for Russia in a long term.

I want to see the Japanese Defense forces doing something to stop the terrorists. Perhaps arresting them by armed commandos and putting them to a jail.

Well, just to remember, China is not only attacking all the countries in Asia but they are suffocating their population with their own pollution.

Well, Russia deserves to have the first olympic games! Even if the project cost was 51 billion, they will certainly have some profit on it plus the region will develop quickly. In exchange we will see the most impressive games!
