Question is why Japanese gov has been so tardy and difficult—another form of NMIH (not made/invented here) protectionism perhaps?

A city of 5 millions is without water.
The monsoon has either failed or is very late.
Are weather patterns changing due to MMGW? The residents of Chennai hope not.
Now multiply this scenario to cover several billions worldwide thoughout Africa, central Eurasia and the central Americas—and tell the people living there they cannot move to where there is water, so they must adapt (aka die).
There's a storm coming, and it's not a rainstorm.

The slithery buggers are the bane of my life, and I live on the second floor! I watch them crawling up the building to get to my balcony herb garden.

I had numerous run ins with US immigration years ago, because of my time spent in a Greek prison. You do not at all have the same rights when you are in the immigration area.

And there are some real idiots working there.

I spent time in a Greek prison, was never formally charged... and still, on several occasions they wanted to strip search me!
