Posted in: The survivor: Last Korean war criminal in Japan wants recognition See in context

In 1999, Japan’s Supreme Court rejected compensation claims by Lee and other Korean war criminals.

On what grounds?

This isn't some kind of conspiratorial attack on your 'rights'

Where did I mention that it was a conspiracy? The over-reaction to this minor threat by melodramatic people, like yourself, is no conspiracy.

Living your life and maintaining your livelihood are NOT selfish acts that are killing people.

The way that the media and politicians pander to individuals (in order to profit) that feel threatened, is doing far more damage than 'the threat'.

You really haven't done your research if you feel otherwise...

And as you head for the beach, the cinema and festivals and complain that life isn't fun anymore, please remember that there will be countless number of medical staff around the world who will not be able to enjoy life as you do. There will also be countless number of patients in ICU who will be unconscious and will not even know it's summer, and there will also be countless number of people including young children who will die alone in an isolation ward away from their loved ones. Yeah, Kanpai...

All because I went to the beach?

Dehumanization...

Don't show your face. Don't travel. Don't socialize. Don't touch anything. Don't hand money directly to someone, make them pick it up. YOU are probably killing others at all times. Your comments will be censored if you speak out. YOU are the disease.

Now get back to work!

In fact, due to all the fear and destruction to our economies: you are far more likely to lose your job than even catch COVID-19! And if you do catch COVID-19, you have more than 99% chance of survival...

Again, many here opting to tank the economy while naively thinking it won't come back to bite them. Safe for now in their cotton wool masks.

Think for a minute how much tax payer's money is already tied up in the Olympics.

I dislike the entire, corrupt organization. But I do have a sense that Japan is heading into wild economic storms...

Masayuki Saijo, director of virology at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, said it was not appropriate to discriminate against people based on where or when they work.

While the kiddies all make jokes about kissing... hihihi! I commend the Director of Virology's comment above as one of the only sane and mature remarks in this click bait news and comments section...

Again the panic, without anyone asking if its really necessarily to bankrupt tourism and service industry over this virus.

Exactly. The numbers are always skewed to make the situation look worse than it really is. The WHO and the media have created such a panic with voters around the globe that governments and organizations have to pander to this panic to stay relevant.

The Gates Foundation will be cashing in on this with their miracle vaccine.

Just wondering if anyone here has the wherewithal to ask themselves if this strain of coronavirus has been around far longer than reported?

Really sad state of affairs. It's hardly 'conspiracy theory' when you have chief medical officers speaking against popular narrative. On the contrary, considering the popular narrative to be Bible is more akin to conspiracy theory when so many parts of the story don't add up:

https://off-guardian.org/2020/07/02/no-one-has-died-from-the-coronavirus-president-of-the-bulgarian-pathology-association/

It's time for the media to open the narrative out to scrutiny... SOS!

I don't talk to the commuters standing next to me on the train, and I don't share drinks with them either.

Sharing drinks is purely a typical sensational comment in this story to garner more views and comments.

It's hardly fair to suggest that drink sharing is/was a widespread practice. It's simply not. If it were, I'm pretty gosh darn sure they aren't doing it now...

You talk to colleagues and clerks each day, no? You stand in the vicinity of commuters and touch the same surfaces, no? Do they wipe down toilet doors and hand-grabs on the train after each use? Do you take your mask off to eat? Do you wear gloves when you handle money?

Nothing but pure greed from the wedding planner, who fought hard to keep its reservation by tricking the customers with this silly idea.

Taking away the livelihoods of people and telling a couple they can't get married (a personal decision not related to neither you or I) because of your personal fears could also be interpreted as greed...

just can’t understand the importance of having to go to these places. 

And here we go with the vitriol again...

I don't go to nights clubs or hostess bars of any sort, I don't like going to them, and you don't have to go either. It's a good, old-fashioned, personal choice (something we are seeing less and less of).

To uphold the core tenets of this democratic world we live in (even if it is a facade in reality), it's hypocritical to say that this legal business venture cannot take place because of your saying so - yet your's can.

Thanks to you arrogant people, I as well as many of my friends And others have to continue to drain their bank accounts to put food on the table and pay bills.

You might have to check yourself there. Just seconds ago you were very vocal about how you want to take away the livelihoods of a very particular group of people who are not harming anyone anymore than the morning subway commute.

I hope you can sense the irony encapsulated in your post...

No she wasn't put on a ventilator. She recovered at home. She got off relatively easy considering, but it's unfortunate she still has breathing issues.

I'm happy to hear that she is OK. And I hope she can get past the breathing difficulties soon.

Wanting to stay healthy, or alive is not identity politics.

Luckily for you, politicized or not, your chances of dying are infitesimally low...

Yes, you are wrong.

Well, either way, your comment above "[not wearing a mask] is spreading the pandemic" is hyperbolic and fanciful.

Try inserting words such as 'could', 'may' etc into your grammar perhaps? The world might seem like a better place.

Example: "Wearing a paper mask for days on end, that does not seal around the face correctly and traps bacteria, as opposed to the virus, MAY do very little to stop this minor coronavirus threat and COULD actually be doing more harm to individuals in terms of hygiene and social skills".

Your choice to spread the pandemic? 

You see, the way you say that is part of the problem. I could be wrong, but you sound American to me,and it could be good ol' American hyperbole (Example: "This is the BEST sandwich in the world", "You are the most beautiful woman that ever lived", "You're either with us, or against us" etc etc).

No. Not wearing a paper mask is not necessarily equal to "spreading the pandemic". As is your choice to get the extra social credits by wearing a mask is NOT equal to NOT spreading the "pandemic".

This identity politics (displayed above) is what is doing far more damage than the COVID threat...

I'm very sorry to hear that. Was she hospitalized and put on a respirator?

Too many of my friends back home have suffered terribly from Covid, I'm not taking any chances. One of my friends from high school, a nurse, caught it back in March and still has breathing problems from it.

Just wondering if we are getting the full story, in context, here...

Unlike a number of countries and regions, Japan has not mandated by law the use of masks in public,

Exactly. Due to reasons outlined in the article and more, I refuse to wear them. And no matter how much smarmy social pressure there is to wear them - it's still my choice!

I don't tell you what to wear/do with YOUR body...

People on trains are wearing masks which can't be worn in restaurants, bars and gyms.
