It's a pity that the Japanese government couldn't show some compassion to some Syrian refugees......

Lest we forget America has had actors as president-how could Trump be worse?
Unlike Obama, Trump has made a living as a businessman
Isn't that what America needs?

Asking for real change from a leader like Abe is like asking my cat to go scuba diving!
It's an impossible unlikely scenario.
How can we really expect someone like Abe to understand the economy when he has never wasted a morning filling in countless forms at local and central government offices.
Has he ever worried about the price of food,clothes and if he can pay his bills because the company he works for is going to go out of business?
The reason that Japan will never recover is because these people have little experience if the real world......,

When I'm in Japan, for the most part I'll devour sushi, okonomiyaki,soba etc
When abroad I'll seek out meat pies,(real) cheese,proper pizzas etc
Those who can stomach the price of paying four or five times at Nobu or similar know what they are doing but for the rest it is better to live in ignorance.....
Posted in: Some people open Japanese restaurants abroad without proper training. We want to see 'washoku' become more popular through the acquisition of basic techniques of authentic Japanese cuisine by foreign cooks.

The junction down the road from me is a hotbed of accidents!
Not many foreigners get the chance to help a Japanese from a crashed car but for me that is a more than average possibility.The police control and set traffic light operation here so can aid safety.
There are times when it seems they may choose not to.....

Watch online interviews of Assad online and then watch those of Isis
You'll soon be able to work out the good from the bad.
I've yet to watch President Assad decapitate anyone with a dagger!
Watch the online videos of Isis with their US M-16s,Humvees, etc - just how are US made weapons in the hands of these thugs?
Obviously, that is where the US wants them, right?
Thousands of Sryians have been displaced and turned into refugees by US complicity.
Isis is a creation of the US......

Japan couldn't defend the islands north of Hokkaido after the last war and they were taken by Russia-that is called karma folks!

"The United States has warned that Russian military backing for the Syrian regime only risks sending more extremists to the war-torn country and could further hamper any effort at bringing peace."
What duplicity from the US!
Lest we forget, President Assad is warring against destabilizing terrorists.
Thousands of Syrians on the move, going anywhere they can we young children in tow, walking for weeks.
The US has done nothing to redress this problem but Russia has and is
Bravo Russian and President Putin!!!!!!!

The cops here love to hide near 'stop signs' and catch drivers not stopping for the requisite 3 seconds!
Getting busted not only means a fine but also a 3 year licence renewal
It is really pathetic that bad highway driving can be the norm here especially tailgating whereas the easy
prey is always targeted ......
