    "The car used in the attack has been found, the plates are from a Muslim area in Southern Russia."

    So is it possible the KGB procured a car from there to point the finger at Muslim terrorists? Just asking.

    What's amazing when you read accounts such as this is the fact that some people in Japan have this collective ignorance and/or amnesia about their WW2 history. Can it really be possible all these people fabricated their experiences?

    " Russian investigators, politicians and political commentators on state television on Saturday covered much ground in looking for the reason Nemtsov was gunned down in the heart of Moscow, but they sidestepped one possibility — that he was murdered for his relentless opposition to Putin"

    You knew this was coming. Russia is one of the world's leaders in conspiracy theory, except of cause when the conspiracy implicates a certain Russian president or his cronies. That would never make the evening news on state television.

    "Same thing happens in America..."

    Really? Please give some examples.

    "The separatists have won."

    And that's cause for celebration?

    "It seems more likely to me that Putin's enemies, both home and abroad, staged this murder as a desperate PR grab."

    Are you taking credit for this idea? Because this sounds more like something Putin would cook up.

    "The Kremlin said that Putin will personally oversee the investigation."

    Well that's a relief.

    "We are now combing the city for terrorists..."

    Let's hope they all are either captured or preferably killed so as not to terrorize again.

    "Right wing hate media! Someone is in denial."

    "Open your eyes and see the light!"

    First off, this woman says "we need to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs, whether..." and at that point Chris Matthews interrupts her. She clearly was going to list further reasons.

    Second, find me a quote by Pres. Obama that states poverty and/or lack of jobs are the only causes of radical Islam.

    Watching this clip confirms that many on the right blindly follow conservative websites which don't deserve to have the word "journalism" attached to their name.

    "The special forces now have a name, a face and an identity that allows them to eventually find their target."

    YongYang: I think governments already have a good idea who many of these homegrown ISIS fighters are. And many will not dare return to face what they deserve because they are cowards without their comrades surrounding them.

    Chinese people aren't stupid and can see this type of editorializing as just another nationalistic cheap shot. They buy Japanese products because the quality exceeds anything China currently has to offer. Money talks.

    "...but not being able to go through with the marriage was what radicalized him..."

    And that's why he may have murdered at least five people?

    "But still Obama et al and media will keep telling us that islamic radicalism is a problem of...... poverty."

    "He couldn't find a job in the UK. Had to be. My country's leader said this is the likely cause."

    This is the line that the US right-wing hate media is pushing. But he never said that poverty was the only cause of radical Islam. A typical distortion of his comments and position.

    "For graffito-tagging telephone poles? Here in America, you'd most likely get community service for that!"

    Only half joking but graffiti and vandalism is serious stuff. Don't forget, this is Japan and doing something like this upsets the sense of order.

    "I wouldn't trust that kind of chart. If you notice, it is so pro-West, ignoring the real condition of free press also in the West."

    Alex, news websites of the industrialized countries in the west (USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, etc.) contain criticism, insults, and sensationalism regarding politicians that in most cases you would never find in Japanese media.

    "Besides, he'll just resign, lay low for a few months to a year, and then magically reappear. The "talent pool" for J-politicians is ridiculously low, so they have to recycle everyone anyway."

    "He said he was asking lawmaker Yoshimasa Hayashi, who preceded Nishikawa as farm minister before a Cabinet reshuffle in September, to resume the post."

    Well there you go.

    "Meanwhile, intensifying fighting around Mariupol, on the Avoz Sea, heightened concerns the pro-Russian rebels might be preparing a new offensive after storming the key town of Debaltseve in defiance of a week-old ceasefire."

    You can be sure that this new offensive will happen at some point. Does anyone think the Russians would put a halt to it? Putin will just say he can't control the rebel's actions.

    Whatever he says he will be sure to come up with words and sentiment that will appeal to right-wing nationalists.
