太田述正コラム#3837(2010.2.18)
<皆さんとディスカッション(続x748)>

<後からすみません>

 細野祐二氏の書いていることはよくわかりませんが、仮に、その結論「政治資金規正法違反に当たらない」が正しければ、無罪にするしかないんじゃないでしょうか?
 犯罪行為に一切当たらないのに、「背景事実」が悪質だから刑事処罰するというのでは、ドイツ人どころか、どこの自由主義国の国民に対しても、恥ずかしくて公言できない話です。
 もっとも、細野氏の結論が間違っていたり、あるいは、別途、悪質?な事案で起訴し直して処罰することは、ありうると思いますが。

<太田>

 刑法第38条に「法律を知らざるを以って罪を犯す意なしと為すことを得ず」とあります。 
 これは、法の一般原則の一つである「法の無知はこれを許さず」を条文化したものであり、
http://okwave.jp/qa/q114402.html
これは罰則を伴うあらゆる法律にあてはまります。
 ですから、石川議員に会計知識がなかったことは事実らしいとしても、そのために同議員が政治資金規正法の解釈を誤ったという主張(=法の無知の抗弁)を行うことによって、同法違反の認定を免れることはできないのです。

 そもそも、細野会計士は法律解釈の専門家ではないので政治資金規正法についての彼の解釈が正しいかどうかは保証の限りではないところ、彼の同法解釈が仮に正しいとしても、同会計士自身、「石川議員は例の小沢氏からの仮受金をせっかく定期預金で返済して簿外化したにもかかわらず、年が代わって平成16年の政治資金収支報告書を作成する段になり、定期預金が陸山会のままで名義変更されていないことにハタと気がつき、これはマズイとばかりに、政治資金収支報告書に定期預金を計上してしまったのである。小沢氏の個人資産を政治団体の資産として計上するというのであるから、当然のことながら政治団体の資産は4億円分だけ過大計上されて貸借が合わない。そこで、たまたま問題の世田谷の宅地の登記が12月末に間に合わなかったことを思い出し、ならばこちらも4億円近いので、定期預金をこの年度に計上する代わりに不動産を翌年回しにしておけばちょうど辻褄が合うと考えたのではないか?見よ。石川議員の経理処理は翌平成17年以降に見事に辻褄が合い、平成17年に4億円の事務所費が計上されるや、平成17年と平成18年にかけて4億円の定期預金は消滅している。」と同議員が虚偽記載をしていると認定しているのですから、同議員の同法違反は明らかです。
 その上、「石川議員以下3名は政治資金収支報告書の虚偽記載を認め、本件は自白事件として処理されることになった。」と、石川議員らが故意に虚偽記載をしたと自供しているのですから、何をかいわんやです。

による。(コラム#3833)

 なお、犯罪を犯した背景事情が、起訴の是非はもとより、刑を言い渡す際の情状にも影響することは、「ドイツ人どころか、どこの自由主義国の国民」にとっても常識です。

 更に日本の安全保障における宇宙開発について質問があるのですがよろしいでしょうか?

 昨年全日空のジャンボ機パイロットと航空自衛隊のF-15パイロットの2名がJAXAからNASAに派遣されることが決まりましたが、
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/space/news/20090225-OYT1T00570.htm
ジャンボ機と戦闘機パイロットの組み合わせで宇宙飛行士としての訓練を行なうと聞いて、これは、米軍が開発中のOperationally Responsive Space(宇宙即応展開)の下地を日本でも開発していこうという意図なのでは?と思う節があります。

http://www.kirtland.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123054292

 日本政府の安全保障政策は帯に短し襷に長しとちぐはぐである、との太田さんのつっこみはもっともであると考えますが、ORSが頓挫する可能性はあるにせよ、意外に防衛省の中には極少数の先を見通す眼を持っている人間がいるのではないか、というのが以上のオープンソースから作れる仮説かと思いますが、いかがでしょうか?
 もしこれが、防衛省によるORSへの早期イニシャチブだとしても、それは日本政府による自発的なものではなくアメリカ政府から促がされたものである、という見方のほうが正しいのでしょうか?

<太田>

 申し訳ないが、お示しの資料を読んだだけでは、Operationally Responsive Space(ORS)なるものについて、よく飲み込めませんでした。
 よって、全日空と航空自衛隊からぞれぞれパイロットが宇宙飛行士要員となったことと、このORSとに関係について、(旧防衛庁と旧運輸省が犬猿の仲であった記憶に照らしただけでも、)私自身は関係ないと思うのですが、そう断言することもまたできません。
 もう少し、あなた自身の推論なり分析なりをご提示いただきたいと思います。
 
 ところで、核弾道弾の空中レーザー迎撃(コラム#3829、3835)についてのフォロー記事が朝鮮日報に出てました。↓

 「・・・ALTB<(空中レーザー迎撃試験機)>は米国ミサイル防衛(MD)システムの第1段階といえる。敵が発射した弾道ミサイルが加速段階に至ると、まず航空機からレーザービームを発射、迎撃するためだ。もしこの迎撃が失敗すれば第2段階、第3段階の迎撃システムに移ることになる。
 レーザー迎撃のためには高出力のレーザービームを搭載する必要があるが、レーザー発射装置の重さだけでも約3トンに達するため、ボーイング747−400F型機が必要不可欠だ。この航空機は1度の出撃で約20回レーザーを発射でき、その後は充電する必要があるという。」
http://www.chosunonline.com/news/20100217000042

 これ↑を読むと、現在じゃ有効なのは、発射後の初期段階だけのようですね。

 中国が米国債を売却する<(「した」ではないか?(太田))>ようです。
 これは最近のギクシャクした米中関係を反映した中国による意趣返しでしょうか? 
 属国日本はひたすら米国の下駄の泥として叩頭奴隷のままですが…orz 

 ・・・Last year, Chinese premier Wen Jiabao told reporters: "We have made a huge amount of loans to the United States. Of course we are concerned about the safety of our assets. To be honest, I'm a little bit worried."・・・
 "I think decision makers know very well that any large-scale selling of US Treasuries won't do any good to the Chinese economy, which still needs a sustained recovery of the US economy to pull up its export sector. Such selling will also devalue China's existing holdings of Treasuries," he said.
 "Dumping Treasuries will also entail the problem of what to buy in return ? definitely not euro or yen assets at the moment."・・・

 この記事の中に出てくる温家宝中共首相の発言は、当時の記事で承知しています。

プリウスのブレーキ「問題」について
Toyota has announced a voluntary safety recall on approximately 133,000 2010 Prius and 14,500 2010 Lexus HS 250h hybrid cars to update software in the anti-lock brake system (ABS). The brake system has been found to have inconsistent brake feel in some situations, particularly partial braking on rough or slick road surfaces when ABS is activated...The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has described the problem as a "momentary loss of braking capability."...If you experience the momentary loss in braking, NHTSA advises owners to continue to firmly press on the brake to stop the vehicle. It would be wise to leave a little more stopping distance until this recall is performed.

同じくプリウスのブレーキ「問題」について
The saintly Prius has been dragged into the Toyota recall vortex.

It seems that in certain circumstances the ABS system gives too much kickback through the brake pedal. Drivers tend to think this means braking action is delayed. It isn't - if they don't lift their foot they'll find the brakes work as normal.
But a software re-flash of the affected cars will change the feedback in the circumstances in question, and everyone should be happy.
It affects only the Mk3 Prius, and only the first few months' production. Brand-new ones are fine.
That's because Toyota recognised the issue some while ago after some customer comments. It modified the software on Priuses built after a certain date. Older cars will now get a simple upgrade to this new software.
There was no recall at the time. Toyota didn't think it was a safety issue - the brakes always work fine. But I guess Prius drivers aren't the type to habitually drive right up to the ragged edge, so they don't know what ABS intervention feels like. When they experience it, they're spooked.
And now, because everything Toyota says and does is viewed through the lens of ‘safety' and ‘recalls', the company has to be super-cautious. It gets badgered by the media if it doesn't act. In normal circumstances this wouldn't be a recall.
Seen from the outside, Toyota seems to be having a PR catastrophe. But remember, the company has built its business on loyal customers. It has just taken delivery of its first batch of redesigned accelerator parts from the main accelerator recall. This has taken just days. It has made contact with owners, again in days.

Most recalls take months. And it's not as if recalls are unusual. There are about a million recalled cars in the UK each year.
Dealers and the HQ have been working overnight and at weekends. It's a mammoth effort, and it's directed not at finessing the media but at fixing the cars. People who buy Toyotas trust Toyota and its dealers. That's where they choose to get their information, not from scare stories in the tabloids.
Toyota is trusting that this will be the way to ensure the damage of the recalls - both to the customers and to its own reputation - gets healed rapidly.

NHTSAの苦情データベースにおけるトヨタ車への突然無意図加速の苦情の多さ。
December 7, 2009
Analysis shows over 40 percent of sudden-acceleration complaints involve Toyotas. Toyota and Lexus models for 2008 had a much greater incidence of sudden, unintended acceleration than other brands, according to Consumer Reports’ analysis of a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety complaints database...In analyzing all 5,916 reports on 2008 models, Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center and Statistics Department identified 166 cases in which the complaint described sustained unintended acceleration that the driver found difficult or impossible to control...We used 2008 models to provide a snapshot across all automakers and identify possible issues. The scope was further narrowed to complaints submitted before Aug. 28, 2009, when a California family was killed in a Lexus sedan experiencing
uncontrollable acceleration, to eliminate the impact media coverage had in drawing more submissions.

Toyota, Lexus lead with complaints
The sudden-acceleration incidents were distributed over 22 brands, but they were not spread evenly. Forty-seven complaints were about Toyota models and five were for Lexus vehicles. Between them, Toyota and Lexus accounted for more than a third of all the unintended-acceleration incidents we found among 2008-model vehicles. Seen another way, Toyota racked up more unintended-acceleration complaints than Chrysler, GM, Honda, and Nissan combined.

<苦情対シェア比:
トヨタ:41% フォード:28% クライスラー:9%GM:5%ホンダ:4%日産:3%>

The bottom line

Because it is dependent upon motorist submissions, the NHTSA complaint database does not reflect all sudden, unintended acceleration cases. But the data does show statistically more complaints for certain Toyota, Lexus, and Ford brand models.
Another way of looking at the extent of complaints is to compare them to model-year sales. Based on our analysis, the ratio of reports for experiencing such a problem on 2008 model-year vehicle from Toyota Motor Corporation is about one in nearly 50,000. The Ford Motor Company’s reported risk is about one in nearly 65,000. In contrast, the reported risk for a GM model is just one in 500,000.

自動車関連雑誌の論調

米国80年代、アウディのアクセル問題への過剰反応
...In the late 1980s, the Audi 5000 was the target of a barrage of SUA allegations, lawsuits and press reports (including a notorious "60 Minutes" episode that was later discredited). Then, as now, there were accusations that mysterious electronic gremlins somehow took over the car. In the end, NHTSA concluded that driver error was the only likely explanation for the incidents.
http://www.popularmechanics.com/automotive/new_cars/4345385.html

In 1986, the television program 60 Minutes started Audi's "unintended acceleration" scandal. The show trotted out tearful people, recounted death and carnage, spoke to so-called experts, and generally made it seem like the vehicle in question, the Audi 5000, was a roving menace with a mind of its own. In the end, the U.S. government determined that every single so-called unintended acceleration accident was the result of driver error. Some speculated that because Audi's pedals were closer together than those of some other brands, people were too uncoordinated to choose the correct one. The pedal-placement issue Audi faced at that time parallels the throttle-kill issue Toyota faces now.

仮に全ての死亡事例がトヨタ車の欠陥に起因すると証明されても、車としての「危険」性が低い(ブランドの信頼性は別問題)
Complaints of deaths connected to sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles have surged in recent weeks, with the alleged death toll reaching 34 since 2000, according to new consumer data gathered by the government...Toyota Motor Corp. has recalled 8.5 million vehicles globally during the past four months because of problems with gas pedals, floor mats and brakes...Since Jan. 27, NHTSA has processed 686 complaints from consumers about problems related to "vehicle speed control" on cars and trucks manufactured by Toyota, nearly all of them submitted through NHTSA's Web site or by e-mail.

(FOXNEWS 2010年2月16日)
...Every man, woman, and child in the U.S. has approximately a one-in-8000 chance of perishing in a car accident every year. Over a decade, that's about one in 800. Given the millions of cars included in the Toyota
recalls and the fewer than 20 alleged deaths over the past decade, the alleged fatality rate is about one death per 200,000 recalled Toyotas. Even if all the alleged deaths really are resultant from vehicle defects?highly unlikely?and even if all the worst things people are speculating about Toyotas are true, and you're driving one, and you aren't smart or calm enough to shift to neutral if the thing surges, you're still approximately 250 times likelier to die in one of these cars for reasons having nothing to do with unintended acceleration.

(米国自動車雑誌 2010年2月)

...It’s hard to be exact about the human peril. But from the reports of the number of accidents attributable to the two separate Toyota accelerator issues, it seems to be about 15 deaths in the US, though none as far as we know in Europe. That is carnage. Lots of separate human disasters.

But we’re talking about 10 million cars, driven on average for three years or more. Frankly, the actual risk is far smaller than the risk from inattention, a badly fixed load, texting on the move, wrong tyre pressures or any number of other things under the driver’s control.

トヨタ自動車工場が存在するアメリカ州知事の発言
Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and Alabama Gov. Bob
Riley asked in a letter Wednesday that Toyota get "a responsible and fair response from the federal
government." ..."Toyota must put the safety of drivers first and foremost," Beshear said
in a statement. "However, they deserve a level and reasonable response from the federal government - one that
is not tainted by the federal government's financial interest in some of Toyota's competitors." ..."No one
asked us to do it," Richardson said..."In Mississippi, Toyota is a valuable partner in building a highly skilled, high-tech workforce," she said. "Governor Barbour wanted to convey his confidence in the auto maker and in Toyota's beginning operations in Mississippi when market conditions improve." The House Oversight Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee are planning hearings, as is the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. In the letter, the governors said that Toyota employs more than 172,000 Americans in plants and dealerships across the nation and said the company's continued success is in the national interest.

"Besides the obvious good-paying jobs provided in our states, Toyota demonstrates a commendable positive spirit not only with its own employees, but also in the communities and neighborhoods within which its plants operate," the governors said. They also criticized what they called "aggressive and questionable" news coverage "when the real story is how quickly Toyota identified the
problems, found solutions and delivered those solutions to its dealers worldwide."

米国低燃費自動車買い替え制度(通称:Cash for Clunkers)の結果
Government data shows that while 54 percent of the top-10-selling vehicles were manufactured domestically, eight out of 10 carry Japanese or South Korean nameplates. The Toyota Corolla is the most popular car bought under the program. Only the Ford Focus and the Ford Escape cracked the top 10.

American automakers are dominating one area -- trade-ins. All the top trade-ins were made by U.S. companies, with the Ford Explorer four-wheel-drive leading the pack.
