Government should really stop wasting money buying these US weapons. Maybe invest more into developing homegrown ones instead. Otherwise we just keep relying others by buying it from overseas.

But what if you then decide to occupy and attack countries ...I think it is better for everyone this way .

Olympic live viewing events

Aren't exactly a problem just for Tokyo. This might turn into a problem anywhere in the world.

I don't believe they have left the rest of them in.

I said I will ignore everything about the Tokyo 2020 Olympics but I just can't. It isn't smart. Perhaps not a bad idea to close shop stock up on food and stuff for July and August and just wait for this to this to be over.

I've eaten dog a few times, both in China and Korea, just to see what it was like (tastes like goat)

and

Snatching a cat off the street is different story

It is different but just because we haven't established whether or not he did it to stay alive.

Why is the media ‘here’ highlighting this type of uncommon case? 

It seems likely to inflame and perpetuate, both ‘here and abroad,’ some overall, wrongfully stereotypical-depictions of some Asian cultures and their individual choices of ‘food’ sources.

Perhaps because it is spectacular, true and specific to Asia. Also the likely reason for the current pandemic.

Plenty of stray cats in Tokyo. But no, if you look for them in the middle of the street, you probably see few.

It is Japan's neighbor countries where they eat dogs or anything. Japanese didn't/don't have such culture.

Yeah right ..

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/japanese-lawmakers-call-for-international-agreement-to-prohibit-the-eating-of-dogs-and-cats-301186692.html

Kenzo Fujisue, member of the Parliamentary League for Animal Welfare, is the main leading lawmaker of the request letter. During the meeting with Katsunobu Kato, the Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan, Mr. Fujisue explained the dog and cat meat situation on the domestic and international level, "There are over 100 dog meat restaurants in Japan. The United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China have all established a ban on dog and cat meat; a similar trend can also be seen in the United Kingdom. To not fall behind on the international scene, Japan should outlaw dog and cat meat and initiate the International Agreement to Prohibit the Eating of Dogs and Cats." If Japan bans the consumption of dog and cat meat before hosting the Olympics in 2021, the country's international image would be improved extensively.

Hmmm...

Sick at the least, I hope he serves sometime in jail for animals cruelty , 5 years will do and a fine of 500,000JPY, he is lucky to be alive, I know for a fact that other countries animal lovers would have had him canned by now.

He will be free and back in Istanbul for more

This guy needs to be watched carefully. Animal abuse can be a first step to more severe crimes.

I mean even if this is culture and what have you. It is still very dangerous because it actually involves close proximity handling of an alive also dead animal by an individual with knives that obviously isn't very educated and could lead to another potentially deadly virus jump.

so from that point on many Muslims believe that cats are blessed because the Profit Muhamad touched them with his own hands.

In Asia apparently they are just protein

Come to think of it, there aren't many stray cats on the streets in Tokyo. I always wondered why

Hmm ... https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-39577557

The Turks should explicitly put signs like "Please don't eat stray cats or dogs" .

As is, I think it might be very confusing for most of Asians.

Never ends. There will be variants for ever now. Like flu. What needs to change is the way we deal with this

It will end when everyone is vaccinated. It will end this year.

No US/Russia drama isn't bad for business.

Right now,.. what worries more is another virus from coming from China. On top of nuclear treaties I suggest defining few world standardized protocols when dealing with China and Chinese. Like mandatory hazmat suits and quarantines and extensive testing for known and unknown viruses.

Posted in: American father, son to go on trial for helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

if Americans commit crimes in Japan, they get their asses busted in japan, that is the way it should be by any reasonable standard

Nooooo ! Not american military ! Completely different realm ! If the US Military says fine you can prosecute him then maybe else no way Jose !

The relevant section is Article XVII 1(b) which states:

(a) the military authorities of the United States shall have the right to exercise within Japan all criminal and disciplinary jurisdiction conferred on them by the law of the United States over all persons subject to the military law of the United States;

So if you are a US soldier you are a subject to the military law of the US. So US is by no means is "obliged" to do anything according to this treaty

No way they see the inside of Fuchu. A Max 3 year sentence and/or a 300,000 Yen fine? Sentence will be suspended, Fine invoked, Deported upon payment/paperwork completion and banned for (x) years from re-entering Japan.

This makes more sense !

I mean think about it ? An ex special forces officer of the most powerful army in the world rotting in Japanese prison ?

Posted in: American father, son to go on trial for helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

in contrast the US is obliged to hand over US military personnel for prosecution to Japanese authorities when they have committed crimes punishable by Japanese law.

This really is mind blowing !

Is this some wording game ? "US military personnel" is that same as US military officer ? Have you got a link to some official document supporting this ? It really is unbelievable .

They committed the crime in Japan, so as with anyone else who commits a crime in Japan, Japanese law applies to them, former soldier or not.

If they were caught by the Japanese in Japan then, fine, detention and trial is understandable but even then the US government should be on his side ! Everything else is STRANGE !

Posted in: American father, son to go on trial for helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

So? Are you saying the law doesn't apply to former members of the armed forces? They can just do whatever they want?

The Japanese law ? No ! I thought it doesn't ! It shouldn't ... it doesn't make sense to me .. they bled for America and now at the mercy of a foreign dubious government .
