    In all armed conflicts these freaks pop up. Well, also in peace time. The thrill of pulling the trigger of weapons that kill accurately from long distances. Killing innocent people, childs. And the story of hushing it up, burying it. Wars are awful, but what makes them more despicable is people like Barbera who do not fight but kill - unnecessarily.

    Russia says it will respond if Ukraine interests attacked

    And the US are saying the same thing. Which country now illegally and sneakily annexed a part of Ukraine? Which side is to cave in first? Which country has stationed tens of thousands of troups on the Ukraine border, first claiming it a military exercise but now to 'protect' a handful of Russians who decided Ukraine was a better place to be than Russia and now having a change of heart. And, yes, protection they do need after Russian thugs created a volatile situation in a neighboring independent state. It is clear Putin's mouthpiece Lavrov has nothing better to say, no proper explaining to do, except offering more threats through his buddy Putin.

    Japanese businesses ought to know by know what they got into by doing business with China. In politics and business extortion remains business as usual and even the judiciary plays the same game.

    Pro sports in which sportsmanship is not always the key note. Players that can't keep their mouths shut and concentrate on the game. Players that can't control their emotions. All part of the game we love to watch so much.

    Without Japan's investments and injections of subsequently copied technology China would still be in the days of the Great Leap Backwards [did I misquote?]. Is that why China hates Japan so much? Not because of the Japanese occupation many decades ago, but because they could not develop without the aid of their 'enemy'? And instead of showing their red faces of shame for not admitting all Japanese NGO and volunteers have been doing in China without fuss and for shamelessly copying Japanese technology and claiming it as original Chinese inventions, they try to cover their tracks by resorting to provocation and intimidation. The dangerous path China is on, the control of all of East Asia, leads to self destruction.

    I hardly think the Chinese have any legal ground to stand on. Seizing civilian property? That's how low they can stoop.

    You can't just blame the crew. How does a ferry operator get a license? How often is it reviewed and renewed and what is the procedure? What about the awareness every crew member carries responsibility for the lives of the passengers and need to have proved, repeatedly they are up to it. It's the government who must guarantee all rules are in place and being observed. Not just once, but every so many months. Stop shouting Park. Make sure this kind of disaster is not repeated, ever.

    Nuclear energy is never safe, particularly in Japan, neither is it competitive in a free market. The builders of nuclear plants obstruct the development of renewable energy.

    If some pilot programs are well set up and run as the Japanese know fully well how to run them -- and with no kickbacks and no cheating by shady operators -- then I think the Japanese public will see the light and permit such well-focused and well-managed temporary immigration.

    There is no such thing as temporary immigration. Immigrants and or their offspring are here to stay. When people are allowed in and begin to grow roots you can't just kick them out after a while.

    In Moscow, the patriarch of the Russian Church, Kirill, in a prayer for Ukraine called on God in turn to put “an end to the designs of those who want to destroy Holy Russia”.

    Kirill does not specify who 'those who want to destroy Holy Russia' are. Could this be people from within Russia? Besides I can't see anything 'Holy' about Russia, now or ever in its 'glorious' past.

    Allowing in more immigrants won't help a declining population. Look at what it has done and is doing to the EU. Redesigning and redefining industries is the answer. Diversity of culture, customs and religion is supposed to work in some countries, but it doesn't really, does it?

    TV commercials, They send a message. They say something about the makers and those who watch them. They say little or nothing about the product.

    Thomas, about meat,

    If the price is cheaper, then I'm sure most consumers would choose the cheaper option.

    You are wrong in your assumption.

    A clear sign Putin has no intention to settle the territorial dispute with Japan. Abe would be a fool to think there is any basis for negotiations with Russia under Putin. He'd only get stabbed in the back.

    The captain should be the last one to leave the ship or go down with it. He may now wish he had stayed on board, Of course we don't at this time know all the details but is looks like the crew was not prepared in any way for a calamity at sea, something crews are supposed to get trained and retrained for. Even a ferry and a large one at that, is an ocean going vessel which needs to be equipped with competent and certified people in charge of human lives. I know it's easy to criticize after the fact, but how well was the operator and the employed crew prepared, how often did they conduct emergency training sessions? These are questions people will want answers to.

    So now all those of you proud that you don't pay and are gratuitously rude to the collectors can thumb me down.

    Yes, Cleo, and that's exactly what the gaijin anti-NHK clique has been and continue to be doing. It's probably a convinced, tenacious group that hate the programming, or hate to pay for programming they are not interested in and prefer commercial infected television. Fortunately it's a minority. Most people do pay the charges and those having problems with over zealous collectors, or people who pose as such, are few and far between.

    This is more than sad. It is totally ridiculous. The urine won't even show up in the most stringent laboratory testing. Portland has pollution problems the state has not managed to get under control, problems far worse than a drop of urine in the ocean of the reservoir. Tim Hall beating his chest implying 'we have enough drinking water and can afford to waste it' has his own ideas about water management it seems.

    Moscow has failed to honour previous agreements.

    It has. Putin has. Russia is known for it. Don't fool yourselves, this Putin is a sly one and I have said it before, untrustworthy. Mark my words, this conflict won't be over for a long time to come.

    Can these Boko Bums imagine if it were their own sister or daughter abducted?

    I doubt their imagination stretches that far. Their pride seems to be in terrorizing defenseless, weaker human beings who can't fight back. Pretty low. I doubt that is what the Koran teaches.
