    Pathetic to see the 'My party right or wrong' rhetoric again and again from certain posters here. Dumb Republicans (though not all are dumb) just don't understand democracy and rule of law or even their own constitution. Anyone who doesn't agree with them is somehow a liberal. It's like the Communist paranoia of the 1960s.

    "A woman holds an anti-U.S. President Trump placard...Hillary fan that another 'dislike' failed candidate?!

    Another typically simplistic comment on this topic. You don't have to be a Hillary supporter to be against Trump and fear the damage he's going to do to the USA.

    The first seven surveys cleared the environmental standards. But in the eighth test, the results of which were released last September, two toxic chemicals—benzene and arsenic—were detected in groundwater samples at levels slightly exceeding the allowable limits.

    That test detected benzene at 1.4 times the maximum level allowed, and arsenic at 1.9 times the limit.

    At a news conference on Saturday, panel chairman Tatemasa Hirata said a surge in the levels of these chemicals in the latest survey is unusual, saying, “There is a need to look into whether this trend will continue.”

    Maybe the hush money started to run out.

    Bullies like Trump can give it out but can't take it. He's a spoiled class brat who grew up getting daddy to protect him and then as an adult used daddy's money to buy a platoon of lawyers for protection - from himself and anyone who challenged him.

    He's following in the age old traditions the elite class have always had.

    Spot on. And his dumb supporters believed he was the anti-establishment ticket. Laughable.

    If China becomes even more directly aggressive over the Senkaku islands, it will put Trump on the spot. If he is indecisive, it will embolden China further and Japan will have to think seriously about taking direct action over incursions on its territory.

    This will also put Japan on the spot as it will have to decide whether the US-Japan alliance under Trump has the power to keep peace in the region, and it won't have the luxury of waiting years for a new President.

    The result of such a scenario will probably have to be Japan changing its constitution and arming up.

    We could see an arms race in the region as a result of Trump's short-sightedness. Armed conflict would likely result in China's economy crashing, resulting in a recession in the USA.

    Trump is too dumb to understand the value of these alliances, instead only viewing them in monetary terms. Still, what would you expect from a billionaire plutocrat businessman who has no political experience?

    Trump invited Russia to hack computers in the US and he calls that making America great again. Putin is playing Trump, who is either too stupid to know better or is putting business interests in Russia before the democracy of the USA. Making America great again? Pull the other one...

    Trump is right in casting doubts about the globalism. We should not accept globalism without examining carefully about its influences.

    Eh? Trump casting doubts about globalism? He has 150 companies operating in 25 countries. He bragged about paying almost zero tax in the USA. We should not accept what Trump says without holding our nose and examining carefully the BS he comes out with.

    And yet it's not even been 8 weeks since Trump's election and we're watching him explicitly support a foreign leader over the American people, and all the people who spent all those 8 years braying about the doom of Obama don't have a single cross word to say about it. It really lets you see just what their feigned patriotism really is.

    Yup. Party before country - my party right or wrong - is the dogma of these overzealous Republicans. Play down a foreign power interfering with their democracy? Sure, because Trump's making America great again.

    Encourage more companies to relocate to outside the Yamanote Line or the suburbs. Encourage more take up of flextime in companies so that commuters are not all trying to reach their offices by 8am or 8.30am.

    Trump's going to sell the USA down the river and it won't matter to him because he's a plutocrat. He pays little to no US tax but makes billions from business deals around the world. He has no real stake in the USA. The saddest thing is that the thousands who voted for him did so because they believed he was anti-establishment. Anti-establishment? A billionaire who pays little to no tax? Yeah right.

    Japan paid compensation dcades ago to a country that routinely murdered its political opponents. Heading that country was the current president's father. Korea should look at itself and accept that reparations have been made. But then modern Korea has ignored the settlement in the 1960s so it' no surprise that the nationalists are ignoring the current settlement.

    Facebook would do better to censor fake news stories rather than censor real ones.

    The father said, “I want them to say why they could not deal” properly with his son’s case. Neither the board nor the school has yet offered an apology to them.

    Me too. And then I want to see them named, shamed and fired.

    This could so easily have ended as another suicide. No doubt the parents offered great support to their son, and those who lost their lives in the tsunami have saved the life of a young boy.

    Calculations of the rate of temperature increase are that it would take around 7 days for the reactor water to reach that critical level if cooling water supply is not restored.
