    Saw this earlier:

    In case you haven't connected the news dots... Putin controls the largest oil company in Russia. He made a 500 Billion dollar deal with the CEO of Exxon Mobil. Obama put sanctions in place which stopped that deal. Russia then hacked into our government in order to get Trump elected. When the CIA told Congress this in September (James Comey was also in that meeting), Mitch McConnell refused to tell the American people, blackmailing Obama saying he would frame it as playing partisan politics during the election. Comey released the infamous no-information letter. Mitch McConnell's wife was picked for Trump's cabinet. The CEO of Exxon is now the Secretary of State. Wonder why our President has been so quick to dismiss the CIA's findings?.........it gets better..2/...

    While this may seem like quite sad phenomenon, it is not unique to only Japan.

    I honestly think Russia helped with the election because of Puti's dislike for the Clintons and their interference with Russian future plans. In addition, they thought that they could manipulate a greedy self-centered idiot with both blackmail and gratification. Unfortunately for them, they can't really keep an idiot inline for it goes against their nature. However, Russia stills win because Trump will be focused on his own self-interests, and the Republicans will be trying to undo all the positive progress the country has made in the last 8 years, while Puti continues his plans for invading or controlling most of Europe.

    Lots of misdirection and chaos to keep the US off-balance, so Puti can make Russia the Soviet Union of old.

    It is a perfect storm! China wants to hurt Japan where it hurts the most, and the smear campaign is always good for local Chinese businesses and nationalism. Everytime China wants to help one of their local industries, a new issue suddenly arises to slow down marketshare growth in domestic markets by international companies.

    On the flipside, Japan does need to be called out on its shady labeling practices, and the practice of mixing contaminated items like rice in with safe items to evenly distribute the problem, so no one can take the blame and everyone suffers in the process.

    It is just funny that China is the one calling them out so loudly!

    I wonder if the pandas difficulty in mating is due to it no longer living in its natural environment. Doesn't China keep them all in closed structures or rented to zoos around the world? Is there a such thing as a wild panda? The behaviors that would have been passed down or influenced by the natural environment are no longer being passed down to the next generation.

    In a way, you could can compare it to humans who loose their culture because factors are influencing their ability to pass it on.

    As far as these women being duped, it is definitely possible. There are people getting tricked into being drug mules all the time. These women fit the profile. Little education, hard up for cash, and naive about the world makes them perfect pawns.

    Nam's family also isn't dumb enough to show up and claim their matriarch. That would just be painting targets on their backs.

    Game of Thrones logic dictates that if you eliminate a possible threat to your empire then you must also eliminate any heirs, so they won't comeback to hurt you.

    We are all aware that the "Dear Leader" is on borrowed time. Un is mental midget living in a fantasy land holding by a thread. His paranoia like his father, and grandfather will be his undoing. Un believes Nam and his family represent a real threat to his supremacy not the other screwed up behaviors and decisions ruining his country

    The Surface changed the game and raised the bar. It put the other manufacturers on notice because the manufacturers hesitated to develop their tablets for fear of canabalizing their other products. Microsoft's other products were tanking, so they went all in on a market that was being ignored. People are taking notice, and sales for the surface is looking good.

    Alot of chaos and disaster means alot of volatility, a lot of volatility means lots of financial opportunity, lots of financial opportunity means lots of money is being made. Conflict, wars, and natural disasters is where the real money is made.

    Trump's buffoonery is a distraction to improve his own financial situation, while the real pillaging is going on behind everyone's backs. Wall Street, Republicans, Russia, China and North Korea are finding a way to take advantage of the Trump travesty.

    I would say start storing rations and keep some cash on hand just in case.

    If the information is true then it is unfortunate, but when it involves Russia, I always wonder whether it is some type of plot. Are the top Russian brass trying to "drain the swamp", or are they trying to make these people disappear for a secret mission? Is it even possible that it is a devious plan for Russia to justify going all in to Syria like Bush justified attacking Irag?

    With Russia's track record the last couple of years, it is hard to tell!

    Uber hasn't left. They changed to food delivery. Unfortunately, they will be beat out by the other food delivery services already available.

    This taxis service is actually raising prices. It just appears cheaper to the unsuspecting consumer. I wonder how long it will be before we see disputes in the news between drivers and customers.

    It seems more likely that the Chinese are making a play to steal market shares for their local companies backed by the government. They don't care about patents. There are whole towns in China that manufacture knock off goods like iPhones for black markets all over the world. Some of these rings are large enough to go legit.

    I guess we know what that meeting with Norway was about.

    In 2014, the IWC ruled that Japan abused the scientific exemption.

    Does that answer your question from the previous article OssanAmerica?

    Has nothing to do with UNCLOS. IWC Article IV which authorizes Scientific Whaling specifically exempts it from recognizing sanctuaries.

    Except those same governing bodies have ruled that Japan was not conducting any credible scientific research, but simply using it as a way to hunt whales. Japan has made several attempts to produce evidence and submit new research proposals. They have been repeatedly rejected because they have no valid reason.

    This is why they are trying to strengthen their ties to other whaling countries that openly admit to breaking the rules. Basically, Norway will be middlemen because Japan doesn't have the courage to admit the truth.
