    if the Senkaku islands are given to the Chinese then Okinawa falls under the indirect influence of the Chinese military. this is because of the reach of missile and plane technology. that would get based there.

    don't think so? china just built an island- they can modify one too

    the fact that anyone thinks china would consider an international ruling is a bit ludicrous at this stage- the real question here should be - who will actually militarize the island first? Japan or China?

    actually you are applauding the torpedoing of family and the business and charities that they support. your anger is at Donald - yet you've shutdown a charity that donated 99% of the funds to a hospital and now is on the way to drive into bankruptcy one of the most progressive business that produced goods in America.

    good going! when those people lose their job I bet they'll be thinking so favorably about you guys

    ah vinarius - blaming trump for everything? I know you have a passport- and probably other documents that required fingerprinting.

    I would look at this though and wonder- if you have a valid Chinese visa why an extra step of fingerprinting at the gate- that is not something the US does.

    but if you want to have fingerprints available on everyone that enters in one online database linked to photo id it is a great way to do it

    normal tactic in the USA to try to move the trial to another area- don;t think it will help much if the evidence is clear......

    UK leaving would not really make much of a difference - however it is all about looks for the EU. that is why there is all the talk of Gloom and Doom, mass flooding, catastrophe and locusts when any country tries to remove itself from what was a loose group of countries breaking down money barriers to what it is now - a Giant Socialist Failing Experiment

    in the war at that time there was limited knowledge as to what the bomb would do - or if it would go off.

    that aside

    there will not be an apology- but there should always be a respectful push to severely limit or stop all Nuclear Arms based on the history that Hiroshima and Nagasaki has presented to the world.

    a push for an apology will not bring that dialogue, it will only open more dialogue regarding Japan's pacific war history

    this will be a disgruntled ship worker- as there are no other recent reports of fires this does not seem to be a fire bug issue. but rather one of someone who spent a lot of patient time creating a space that in the new design will be removed.

    the other two fires will be re-investigated - however electrical and the cloth fire are common with construction. whether a professional or amateur fire starter the method remains pretty much the same. with the one off individual - well it is what ever is on hand when the temper is hot.

    theory's and accusations aside this is a tragedy and one that is just beginning for the family. not just the nuclear family but the extended family, grandparents, uncles and aunts.

    i am just filled with sadness

    easy peasy, does not matter if there is potential reward at the end- call me a boy scout- i did not earn the money - turn it in

    comment as much as you want but now Japan must research the cases and decide if there is truth, if the soldier had already been punished then the case should be closed - as it would have been for the US, France, Germany, Britain etc.

    if the case is true but no punishment occurred then compensation should occur, this has nothing to do with war but abrogating what is decent among men.

    Society today will not take / and should not take a stance of not caring or it was their fault, or they were the enemy for rape in the war zone. even knowing the instinctual need when faced with death should not give a man the right to give in to that instinct.

    the game continues ,

    it is a coast guard ship - being larger than the others it is armed better- Japan- trying to stay diplomatic is saying it cannot describe them clearly spoke in oblique tones regarding the arms it carried - hoping china will get the message.

    but china will not, the next ship will be navy, if Japan does not take a stand- china will land troops and set up a base

    i am so mixed on this issue, I always looked on in sorrow that Japan holds so closely to a constitution dictated by MacArthur. Yet , watching a change from seeing the self defense force building snowmen to being an active partner with the USA is not what is wished either.

    Japan since the Pacific War has kept a peaceful way, which is why the country is like it is, all that has a potential of being wiped away.

    Commanteer deserves accolades for the rational thought. the current bomb and drone program is full of "acceptable losses" where whole families are destroyed because of one man.

    the thought process in WW2 was to bomb the populace to force the government to capitulate, people would make up excuses but in reality the thought was you would foment a rebellion.

    but people just hunker down and pray for the bombing to end

    it is a good program this one, bringing the vets over to meet the people affected in Japan but also to show that Japan does recognize the errors of the Kempeitai and the military government.

    it is time

    Nakanoguy is spot on with the assessment here- we must be coming up to funding time again. Woods Hole has always been in big with the US government and the 3 letter agencies so they need that extra money.

    to publish information that states- yeah we can notice there is something- but we can also notice 1950 testing but nothing is even close to harmful - but we need to keep monitoring....

    KaChing - please pay us to monitor.,...

    wow - compassion and understanding is so lost in this generation. so let's see.... 71, born in what 44? being gay did not become an in thing until the last decade and a half (trust me it was not acceptable in the 80's)

    now we are to shame and decimate anyone who does not tread the current " path to enlightenment"

    look at his age, that is a lot of past history to un-learn

    this is beyond a gun law ( of which there are many on the books already that are not being enforced BTW).

    to own a firearm does not mean you immediately dress up in tactical clothing, make bombs and kill people

    prior to blaming the NRA for something it did not do, nor blaming "lack of gun laws" which if you researched you would find there are many - (but always conveniently dropped by prosecution during trial)

    why do we not focus on the true subject- who were these people and what were they objectives- the President tends to minimize what's happens- Fort Hood is called an Employee Shooting - though the shooter yelled Alluha Akbar while shooting people.

    and he states we will die of global warming and does not mention gun control to France...

    actually Japan still approves 99% of drugs after they are already on the market elsewhere. i work in R&D sometimes with the Japan team.

    though i can only speak toward trial work - not the full process - i can say the work is done diligently and with care.

    25 years in Japan: currently Israel is dealing with 46,000 some african refugees, on top of being the place to go if you are Jewish and need a new place to live.

    this Israeli refugee issue is because Egypt is pointing them in Israels direction because Israel will do something Egypt will not- follow the UN Refugee convention.

    so don;'t ask Israel to take on more - especially while in a state of war

    it i strange how there is a push for a small island nation to become a haven for refugees. perhaps the real idea should be to build a new island on a reef and resettle them there .....

    i think China has that island building program going on right now- they should be able to help.

    though it would be better if countries surrounding the one in question would actually do something- the current syrian issue is a perfect example. middle eastern countries taking refugees- zero, the rest of world ?
