Bluesree, if you hate Japan then what are you doing on this site?
The US's financial situation is still dire and I suspect that Abe and Company are weakening the Yen in response to a future US economic crash (ie. in advance of further strengthening). Let's not forget that we Americans have 12 and 19 years respectively until Medicare and Social Security run out of money.

I honestly don't know what will defeat radical Islam?
How do you fight IEDs and suicide bombers with a conventional army?
How do you destroy an idea or a belief system?
Posted in: The U.S. is putting together a coalition, including Japan, to eradicate the threat to the global community from the Islamic State. Do you think military action will be effective or will it make the situation worse?

at least in the automotive industry (not sure about electronics) parts come from Japan iself and much of Japan's "foreign factories" are just assembly plants.

CoconutE3, I agree. Sony has to drop the dead weight in terms of uncompetitive products. I own a PS4 and am still amazed by the system after six months of ownership.

I figured that power-cells were the future over electric vehicles. Having to recharge your car every 40 miles just isn't practical.

When it comes to Japan's economy I honestly believe it's a possibility that they came out of recession and just didn't tell anyone. As for the US and Europe, they have no high-paying jobs (manufacturing), so there really is no recovery. It's all government misinformation, half-truths, and downright lies.

At least China is efficient in its executions. Here in the US it can take decades for people sentenced to death to finally be executed.

It's disgusting how the terrorists take the Koran and twist its teachings. I may be a Buddhist, but IS has to be destroyed or the world will see nothing but one 9/11-scale attack after another.

Everything Russia does seems to be petty or to make Russia look powerful. Russia's GDP is only around $2 trillion, so it doesn't have the proverbial weight that the NATO nations do. I just hope this nonsense (war and sanctions) end soon.
