Japan Says “iie” To Kyoto

Share Button

The treaty, not the city! (“iie” is Japanese for “no” by the way). What do the Japanese mean by “No”?

β€œJapan will not inscribe its target under the Kyoto protocol on any conditions or under any circumstances.”

Wow! Not a lot of wiggle room there! I guess the Japanese got ticked that they didn’t win any of the “Fossil Of The Year” awards, and are trying to make a bold, early run for next years contest!

PS. Yay! Insta-Lanched! Welcome Insta-P readers! Always nice to have new people drop by for a visit.

    so did they say “ee-ay” with a happy face or a sad one? Or with a scowl and a vein bulging on their forehead?

    From what i understand, it was with a “I can’t believe we listened to you idiots” facial expression!!! πŸ™‚

    So that’s more of a “Dame yo!” or one of those no-expressions that usually get translated as cussing. πŸ™‚
