It's not like a quick wave of the Geiger counter would be any help. After all, Fung Shui isn't detectable by modern technology so how could anyone trust science at all...?

"Several tentative plans for a visit by Putin to Japan have been put off due to western concerns over Russia’s involvement in such crises."
Why is Japan being dictated to by Neocons like Nuland and Kagan? (A husband and wife team of US war mongers). Their interests are not Japan's. Get a frikkin' backbone.

I did some work for Boots when they tried to enter Japan. All their products were very expensive and very "meh" in interest value. Just common creams and lotions you could similarly get at any discount store. The only thing that sold like hotcakes was a little caramel-coloured bear with a Boots ribbon. When they shut up shop finally there was a black market for these bears. They became enormous status symbols for professional women in Aoyama and Harajuku. You'd see them even years later on desks in high-level corporate offices. Naturally Boots just stopped selling them.

Many people in Australia have these LG TV's. I've got a giant one only 2 years old in a furnished house. It pops and bangs loudly and take over 2 minutes to turn on. I visited a mining site and in the accommodation provided I found exactly the same thing with a smaller model. Total junk.

You don't set up your own personal email server from day one unless it's your intention to do something dodgy. Like sell out your position for cash and political favours. And then frantically wipe the servers so any investigating body has nothing for evidence.

If Madame AIPAC gets in then you should buy more shares in "defense" contractors. She is a puppet of the hardcore, right-wing zionists. And they want to see their surrounding Arab countries destroyed.

Mission Accomplished. The Japanese government knows full well how useless and off-putting their English syllabus is. That's the whole idea. They want to avoid the inevitable exodus and brain-drain if the population could reasonably speak an international language. There's no other reason for it.

Not surprised. I supported this company's IT dept. They treated the contractors like cr@p. Overworking them on a continual basis while refusing to pay overtime. Got a really bad vibe from this organisation.

Having already officially told Obama that the N.Koreans did it, the FBI is now forced to triple down on the stupid and keep repeating the lie until enough people believe it in order to save several top ranking careers. Remember folks, all the MSM channels that uncritically regurgitated this pablum and learn to never trust them again (especially CNN).

Posted in: For many decades, Japan has played an important role in providing development and humanitarian aid to countries throughout East and Southeast Asia, but it was long ‘hindered,’ so to speak, by its pacifist defense policy. It can now become more directly engaged in regional securitization efforts. For some, this is reassuring. For others, it is cause for concern.
