As Lockheed is American owned, that means the trade-deficit with Japan has just gone up by the same amount. Maybe the cheaper electronics to justify the price reduction will be........ manufactured in, Japan!

I have no problem with usage of VTEC, VVT or CVT as these are current & common car terms, just as long as they did not use acronyms like HB, SDN or SC.

Abe is axxe-licking Trump. Stand up to him! Stick with the TPP. One gets the confirmation that without a friendly USA, Japanese leaders like Abe are just going into the corner of the room to cry. Maybe the Okinawa Governer should be PM of Japan.

The saying 'Cut your nose to spite your face comes to mind'. What Trump did to draw from the TPP means just that. I hope the Americans who voted for him gets the rebuilt factory jobs in the US, but I'm not holding my breath.

Many Trump voters are still celebrating and ignorant of what's happening. In time they'll find shopping for groceries is 20% more expensive and then the media will be flooded with calls to investigate Hillary for cheating, so as to lose the election to Trump. Don't laugh, these Trump voters are dumb & dumber. And oh, that car factory job has not materialized, blame Hillary for not driving an American-made car.

Pardon the pun, is there a statue of limitation regarding 'stolen statues? I mean, 14th to 17th century was an awfully long time ago! The onus is for South Korean Court to prove their case. The fact that it was stolen from Japan is a relatively fresh crime so the South Korean Court should return it to Japan. Overly nationalistic Korean judge? Look at the relevant facts of the case?

I genuinely thought a moshiwake arimasen plus free uneaten cakes every Christmas would have done it.

The Asahi Shimbun will do very well to donate the 39 mil yen minus their cost to print the advertisement to the people displaced by the 3/11 & 熊本県 earthquake.

Next season's J League 1 will revert back to the single stage format where the table topper will be crowned champion. I can't wait.

So F1 might go the way of J League1, split into 2 stages. But J League1 will be reverting back to a single stage league next season. Bernie would do well to look at this experience to learn from it before making a final decision.

Go green instead of nuclear. Some countries might be thinking of prestige-related reasons for wanting nuclear power plants. Any added capacities will just be burnt up by uncontrolled demand. The thinking should be safety, safety and safety.

Love Mike L's 'poop hits the fan' and also MsDelicious's 'now was awoken by the scandal' comments. I can even visualize both scenarios of the oyajis sleeping at the meeting with their mouth open as the poop falls.

China's Lu Kang hits the issue right on the head! Hope to see the 'Goddess od Democracy' AND a statue of the 'Tankman' in the middle of Tiananmen Square. Plus off course a plaque showing the names of all the missing students and ordinary citizens who died or are unaccounted for after the Tiananmen incident. This will bring closure to every Chinese.

China could not find anything negative about Japan in Africa, so all they can do is vaguely mention events of WWII.

The wife & I love Narita for the 'farewell Japanese meal' in the nice restaurants before flying home after a wonderful stay in Tokyo. Haneda is for arriving in Tokyo and quickly getting to the hotel.

Let's not begrudge the PM of Japan or any other world leaders for that matter, the availability of a backup plane. This can be prearranged to be at the departure airport, just sitting there if needed. Once the official plane takes off without problem, the lease on the backup plane expires.
