Actually South Korea sent about $50,000,000 to Japan after the 2011 earthquake but Japan took South Korea off the list of donors.

Japan under Shinzo Abe wanted to amend article 9 of their constitution to create a military so he tried to foment more hatred of Koreans to get more support for the LDP.

Agent Neo if you don’t want to support South Korea in times of crises then you should lobby the Japanese government to return those donations, much of which were made by regular citizens,

Korea also sent 50 tons of boric acid used to deal with the nuclear accident, which Koreas also needed in case of an accident in Korea, but still sent to Japan. Please return that too!!

I understand that the developing ASEAN countries rely on Japan's wallet, but China and South Korea have already become developed countries, so they should deal with disasters themselves

Posted in: South Korea to provide $3 million aid to Japan for quake relief See in context

After the 3/11 earthquake and tsunami Koreans of all stripes from elementary kids to even former comfort women victims raised $50 million dollars in 3 weeks.  

The Japanese government under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe repaid this kindness by deleting South Korea from the list of donor nations and approving school textbooks depicting Korea as illegally occupying Dokto island. 

Abe wanted to foment more hatred of Korea in order to win support to change the Japanese Constitution.  The last thing he wanted was the image of Korean kids and college students donating to help Japan.

The Japanese right are not going to be happy about any donations from Koreans.

apparently bc of Japan's penchant for cash there seems to be a significant number of looting, safe's being stolen, etc. anyone caught looting should be receive 3 times the regular punishment.

You know tsunami is a Japanese word. The disaster at Fukushima was entirely foreseeable. It was greed and incompetence that caused the disaster. I would not trust the executives at Tepco.

It is foolish to trust TEPCO. At Fukishima they put emergency cooling equipment AT sea level to save money. TEPCO is incompetent.

Isn't it about time Japan cut the umbilicus and went its own way? Why does it have to be an American puppy dog

why does China have to be a puppy dog of western ideology called communism?

Posted in: Japan asserts Fukushima treated water safe in China, S Korea meeting See in context

There are comments that we should trust TEPCO and the Japanese government. My question is why should we trust them??

TEPCO should have foreseen the tsunami and placed their cooling system above the wave level. But they wanted to make money.

TEPCO is a company so why should we trust their words or the words of the Japanese government that was supposed to regulate the safety of nuclear plants?

Ask what trust got the residents of Fukushima. Do you want to be next? Do you want your children to be next?

It's quite crazy that a team totally isolated from professional football could almost win against Japan, should be like playing a division 5 team"

Not that crazy at all actually.

"In their 1966 World Cup debut, North Korea reached the quarter-finals and beat Italy in the group stage becoming the first men's Asian team in history to make it past the group stage..."

Posted in: Japan to begin releasing second batch of Fukushima water on Oct 5 See in context

Actually this disaster could have been prevented if they had installed a cooling system above and away from the nuclear plant. It was entirely foreseeable!

"The Fukushima accident was preventable. Had the plant's owner TEPCO and NISA followed international best practices and standards, they would had predicted the possibility of the plant being struck by the size of tsunami that materialized in 2011."

How are we to trust the Japanese government now?

But there’s no such thing as Black culture. There’s Black-American culture or black European culture but no pure Black culture. The songs are sung in English and the musical instruments are European. The clothes are western. Africas didn’t create hip hop. Shrugs.

Scott Adams has a good take on this sort of situation. He gave as an example an American southerner who likes the Confederate flag. He said that you can fly the Confederate flag but not in a public space if it offends your neighbors so much. A flag is just a symbol and you don't need to have it in public space if it offends other people to such an extreme extent. If you like the symbol so much then fly it in your home.

Feminism became extreme and now preaches hatred of men. As soon as you hear a feminist talk about confucianism or patriarchy you can be sure that they are preaching hate.

Hopefully Japan can be made a permanent UN Security Council member at the end of this 2 year term.

As long as Japan is a one party state, Japan should never become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

isn't any murder a hate crime?

Yes. But "Hate crime" also has a specific legal definition when a victim is targeted for being or being affiliated with a certain racial or ethnic group. Is it significant that the suspect targeted a western car and also killed the half-white daughter? Of course i don't know the answer.

Actually the real reason Japanese cultural products have had less success isn't so much due to Japanese looking only inward, although it is a factor, but the main reason is the Plaza Accord, the Japanese economic bubble and subsequent bursting of that bubble and then decades of economic decline and deflation.

Notice 2 Japanese were murdered as well? Abe was assassinated out of "hate", and he isnt Korean, 

Good point, hate doesn't have to involve just Koreans.

I guess when you have a foreigner killed in such a horrific manner i think you have to at least pose the question whether it was a hate crime. I don't know because we don't have the facts. Hopefully they will release his internet records. I don't think we should eliminate hate as at least one component of the motivation here though. Hopefully I'm wrong.
