Why is it taking so long for the public to know what the recorders say? They should be the exclusive property of the plane builder, not the owner of the plane.What happens if "mistake are made" and the data is lost? Sorry, "we didn't have the sophisticated equipment in a poor, little country." Time for an international treaty on the ownership.

Fukushima children have the highest percentage of overweight children in the country. This is a ridiculous survey. In any city or town in Japan there is an increase in overweight children and adults. Fast foods, donut shops, prepared food down stairs in the department store, etc. as well as lazy parents who rather not cook because they buy into the value of cramming schools are just a few reasons why there is a problem. "Back when I was a kid" says grandfather, we had to participate in PE and sports. Now, it is an option because everyone graduates from 9th grade as long a he/she can show up for the closing ceremony.

The Castro brothers are the opposite of NK's family. They "sweet talk" the USA, so there is the perception that something good is going to happen-an increase in their professional wealth. Okay, "you win, Castros." You won the battle, and when you have a new assignment, the Cuban people will have finally won their freedom. Let's hope it is in the next 50 years.

The new king is more conservative than his brother. Many of the recent changes will be revoked and IS will have a foot in the door! Japan needs to be prepared to pay higher prices for oil.

In the USA every Japanese citizen living in the country is supposed to register with the local consulate in case the Japanese government needs to communicate with its citizens. The embassy also passes through e-mail and other ways any warnings about traveling TO or living IN dangerous countries. These men should have left months ago, but apparently they chose to stay to help each other. Their situation is very unfortunate situation, and it appears very little can be done to remedy it.

Pachinko is sooooo BORING. Brain dead activity. Okinawa is the best place for the new casino - a Las Vegas on an island close to many Asian countries. SK already has its gambling center. Here are three recent headlines. "Resort, on Jeju island, to open in 2017. South Korea popular destination for wealthy Chinese tourists. Complex to be one of two mega-casino resorts in South Korea." Japan cannot just stand around and wonder, "What happened?" The greatest benefit - USA is out of there!

The USA is similar to China; it admires and treasures dynasties; the Adams, Roosevelt, Kennedy Bush, Clinton and many other families have always controlled the presidency. Nothing new here, and nothing new for the advisory panels, cabinet members, and appointees. What is the difference between the dynasties in the USA and China or NK? Supposedly they are elected in free elections, and the particular country is a decision the reader can make.

Now, if the USA will use its "intelligence" and move out of Okinawa, then the island can develop into the greatest Asian casino/paradise capital. SK is already trying to take all the gamblers' money. Build it, and they will spend!

Great, from a city that never has been successfully defended from invaders. The only lock arms is the lock of the breach on a weapon. Aux armes! Jamais.

After all the lack of official support from EU for action in Syria, Iran and the Ukraine, it is not surprising that many people in the USA would rather see a "lock and loaded of the fire arms breach rather than of the arms. This hideous crime in Paris is acknowledged by every one, but those in the front line of the picture have to take steps to invest in the security of the world. These are harsh statements, but they only reflect the USA attitude today that the USA is not the policeman of the world. Aux armes, tout le monde!

Here it goes again. The recent story on JT about NK wanting money for serious discussion was a precursor to this situation. NK just needs hard cash, and the west just keeps going for the bait. SK deports an NK supporter, and the game continues with NK taking another pawn.

If NK were able to do this attack, it wouldn't have started with Sony. It is either an inside job or the CIA. CIA and FBI don't communicate or share information just for this reason. From a famous tv seriies, "I don't see nothin" and know nothin. Great work CIA!

Why didn't this story conclude with the following from the USA media? "The airline said that search and rescue operations were underway. "

Why did it take an extra day for this story to be in the Japanese media? Apparently, Japan was afraid of being hacked, as reported in the story about how Japan is working to improve its security.

NK shut down its internet in order to protect itself from retribution. It would be nice to think that another country did it, but unfortunately NK did it in order to keep the story alive in the media. President Obama said it best -"Every dog has his day." Just wait, and when NK least expect it - ping pong!
