    Abe looks much happier with these two, than with the Iranian woman in this morning's photo. Why's that?

    But after 30 years of growth averaging 10 percent or more, the world’s third-biggest economy

    Thought China was the second largest after overtaking Japan a couple of years back. And surely this is no reference to Japan.

    What a story - 17 years to the day. 17 years of hard work, well done indeed. Grats.

    The plane is on some abandoned runway in rural Cambodia or inland Vietnam, getting loaded with a made-in-North-Korea nuke and headed for the US mainland. NK didn't have a viable delivery system for its nuke program as witnessed by the failed rocket launches and phony satellite programs - now they have a fully functioning missile in disguise.

    There is no stopping the movement now, these attacks and separatism will continue to escalate, to the point that the communist politbureau can no longer contain public anger at a system that is just so corrupt.

    2014 - witness the beginning of the uprising that will bring China down and separate into multiple smaller states, just like big brother USSR did 20 years ago.

    Things will be bad for a while, but overall will be for the better.

    The U.S. froze all Japanese assets in the U.S., coerced the other colonies in the Pacific to embargo all steel and oil to Japan. That's an act of war.

    The US didn't decide to embargo materials out of the blue either - they did it as part of sanctions following Japan's brutal annexation of Korea and territorial expansions in northern China, triggered by the faked Mukden railway incident.

    Early 1900s, Japan wanted colonies just like all the major western powers, and when it defeated the Russia Navy at Port Aurthur, it gave them the confidence (and capability) to go on a territorial rampage for the next 50 years.

    Read your history books.

    I think something bad must be going down inside China, and they are using Japan as a scapegoat to try and rein in the public discord. The country won't last the decade before it collapses ala ex-Soviet style and splits into multiple nation states. It will be bad for a while, but it will be better for everyone in the end.

    Watched this last night, great work guys. Surprised that White bombed out so bad.

    Was a bit disappointed in both the Japanese sportsmanship in not shaking hands/bro hugging/congratulating Ipod immediately after the results were announced, but then I realized that they were only 15 and 18, or around high school age, and that they would be nervous/embarrassed/lack of English to do any more than they did. It look like it all might have been a little too much for them to process on the spot?

    Good stuff though!

    What if his commanding officer had died? He wouldn't have given up?

    Still, a medal for commitment and loyalty.

    And the Philippines don't hark on about crimes to this day like China and Korea do. Imagine if he was stationed in one of these two countries.

    Hang on, but you just said "Last year's fish was actually about 10 kg smaller than this year's" above. Which is is (can't be bothered googling this tripe). Now you are saying " it's a smaller weight than last year's" ("it" referring to this year's catch I presume).

    Something tells me the friend is a key player in finding out what happened.

    But that could've been just what he told his wife, and there was actually no "friend" involved. Something smells fishy nonetheless, and what a day to do it. RIP.

    Would love to be a fly on the wall when the Japanese coast guard handed him over to the Chinese coast guard. Did they radio them in to come and collect him? Did the two boats meet in open waters? They just let him walk over to the other boat? So many questions.

    Former Singapore PM Lee Kuan Yew said that allowing Japan to send peacekeeping troops abroad would be "like giving chocolate liqueur to an alcoholic.

    It is doubtful that Japan contributions to peace and stability in the region will be warmly welcomed by flowers. Japan is not Germany. Japanese contributing Arm Force may be welcomed by eggs and tomatoes in the region.

    I don't recall any stories of Japanese peacekeepers running around looting, raping and bayoneting civilians while abroad on missions. I may have missed some news events, but documentaries (= propaganda?) on the JSDF indicates that it is one of the most highly disciplined arms of society in the country.
