Reports that up to 200 ships, 34 aircraft and 600 divers have been taking part in the search operation...that was the the official line, on the ground? 2 ships and one aircraft. Ask the locals.

these japanese don't understand, it was the US govt who requested this secrecy law because Japan intel is like a sieve. Everything the US is doing even in high level talks ends up in being divulged to China, South Korea and North Korea. Japanese can't keep a secret.

suspect probably described some details that can not be seen from his vantage point. It was very dark and was difficult to see the place where the crime occured and probably his story was too detailed for an eyewitness account. DNA are left on the crime scene.
reminds me of another nutcase where a man killed a nurse sleeping in the same condo he lives. he was describing the event and came out in TV and interviews but the police found his story so disturbing and later led to his arrest. He was later found to be the culprit and just did the crime because he wanted money for his pachinko vice.

Japan already knows that US is not their ally. When China expanded its air zone, the US did not rebuke China nor made a strong stand against it and Japan got the hint that the US is a fence sitter so Abe pushed the limit.
Russia also saw weakness of USA so it simply disregard its mandate and started annexing parts of Ukraine knowing that the present US president is spineless and is nothing but talk.

I love the way Abe is spinning the South Koreans. The South Koreans went around the world telling Japan never apologized for their comfort women and started erecting monuments everywhere. Japan kept on saying it already made an official apology which the South Korean denied. Then Abe said, lets revisit that apology....
Am I the only one feeling the stupidity going on?
Deal with fools, you can probably stand it, deal with South Koreans, better live in isolation.

Japan made apology, South Korea went around the world claiming Japan did not. Then Japan said it will revisit its apology and South Korea is angry and asking the Japanese govt not to revise their apology. Deal with fools, you can probably reason out. Deal with South koreans, better ignore them. They are more than confused themselves, totally moronic and rotting with insecurity.

Okinawa as a tourist spot? and who would visit Okinawa for its very expensive tourism? Even now Japanese generally go to Guam, Saipan, Hawaii, and other nearby places because Okinawa is quite expensive.
Okinawa has no stable industry, all vegetable coming from the area are twice the price of ordinary vegetable elsewhere. Their product are not unique nor better quality. Most of them are laid back and easy going people.
So if US base moves out? They better get their ass moving vause they will know what it means to Join the ranks of third world countries.

i doubt these claims just like the claim that one of their boats was sunk by the whalers few years back...truth came out that they just wanted to have a publicity stunt to raise fund to buy a new boat.

reckoning time...but actually its more of the parents fault. Many Japanese don't want to have their children marry because they are their social insurance, yup, they want them to take care of them when they get old so its a commensalism in a sense

Japanese media at best....there was never a let up, she was pressured beyond and more. I wonder when will Japan media starts to shut up. All hype as in she is God of the Hills. Let her enjoy the way she has been doing. She was extremely well before the nauseating media coverage started portraying her to be the best and absolute.
