Japan might do the same thing, but two wrongs don't make a right does it? Fix one, then fix the other. Ok Japan lead by example then everybody else will follow suit!

Do you want to talk with the same uninformed people and learn nothing? and we are going to learn from YOU! pleeeaaase judging from your comments and the amount of thumbs down you clearly dont like gaijin, your nationalistic views are blind to the fact that Japan is far from perfect in international matters. id get better conversation from Japanese driving black trucks. please dont continue to bore us with your dribble, it saves us scrolling down further to post a comment

The Greek debt wasn't solely caused by them. The Greek debt should be reduced by 25% and if that fails 25% again and 25% again and 25% again. The rich EU countries can suck it up. great idea just cry poor man and make the rich pay for it, so what happens when Spain, Italy have a similar problem!? can they use this excuse also to get out of repayment. sets a dangerous precident. eventually nobody will trust your continued lies and not lend to you at all! Greece is asking for 1/3 of it debt to be written off about $100billion!!! If you cant afford to pay back your debts dont borrow the F money in the first place!!

the 5 trillion yen per year supporting JA can be much better spent on welfare/pensions and healthcare, most farmers will be retired within the next 5 years. theres no need to keep taxpayer funding new farmers, as its bascially like there on welfare anyways. the TPP is more about just America , there plenty of safe healthy Australian, NZ products I wish to purchase without all the high tarriffs that makes them unaffordable, just so JA wont have to offer better affordable products. The sooner the TPP is here the better!

1 cup of mishosiru has the same calcium that 1cup of milk has. that is pure BS, miso is very high in salt which is as we know very bad for your health. Japanese also have a higher level of intestinal cancer than Westerners due to the higher level of salt intake, while Westerners have a higher level of colon cancer due higher consumption of fatty foods. low suger, fat and salt diet is best. Milk is low in all of these compared to most foods and has more health benifits than non consumption.

Japanese farmers won't be able to rip them off anymore and the price of rice in their supermarket will go down (or so they think)? no itll mean the J farmers will have to become more competitive just like the rest of the Japanese economy had to do to, and stop expecting that 97% majority to keep supporting them through tax payer funded welfare industry it is. I get no support from the J gov to keep my business afloat. If you want to keep supporting the J farmers then only buy Japanese grown but dont expect to hold the rest on the Japanese consumer to ransom by not giving them a choice of what products and from which country they wish to buy from. TPP is coming whether you like it or not!

lol what a joke theres probably 1000 people now as we speak putting this exact same information all over servers in China / Russia in both english and Japanese and will still be easily found through a search engine other than google?
The thing with the internet the harder you try to stop the flow of information the quicker it will spread like a virus for good or bad.

This is a good thing. Japan is ridiculously overpopulated for its size. a smaller population is fine as long as you have more taxpayers than those retires getting taxpayer funded pensions/health care, if you have it the other way around like Japan, the working population will need to pay much higher percentage of there wages in taxes to support the pension/health care system. not enough taxes means less pensions, less health care, lower quality of life. simple really

just as i predicted Nishikori will find it a challenge to manage his inujuries, on the plus side his supporters can always use the injury excuse if he doenst win a major tournament this year. as he is actually for real saving himself for next tournamant

the Aussie open in 2009 had an average tournamanet temp of 34.7C with some days over 40C. since then theyve spent millions building more indoor aircon courts so if the heat rule comes in again theyll be able to switch outdorr games games indoors

@some07791 your assuming Japan has already won the game, since England are the weaker side, Australia were the weaker side and Japan only just made it past them, underdogs always have a habbit of biting you when you least expect it. Only Japans complacency will lose it for them, and if japan make it to the final the US will be hungry for revenge
