I'd hardly call it child porn.

Reuters, France 24, Al Jazeera, etc are reporting 35 hostages were killed by the people who were suppose to save them.

Just use it to build a nuke, just in case something happens.

Thanks for possibly giving the Japanese public more of a reason to dislike the US military! Discharge these clowns from the military at once.

This tragedy is just too much.

GREAT MOVE! Those terrorist are becoming a pest. Wales are meant to be eaten. If they weren't, why did god make them so delicious? I think the UN should ban them from going after the Japanese whalers once and for all.
PS: The US does have Universal jurisdiction in international water.

This is horrible. Nothing will change because most Americans seem to think gun laws don't work. Gun Laws work if enforced correctly. Why haven't they worked in Chicago, DC, and other cities? Because city laws are next to ineffective. You notice states and [most] nations with gun bans or strong restrictions have lower homicide crime rates, including lower gun crime. Japan(ban), Chile(extreme restrictions), South Korea(ban), Ukraine(extreme restrictions, mostly bans), England(ban), Poland(restrictions and extensive and aggressive screening) etc. I could go on. Enforce the bloody laws correctly and they will work. To say they don't work because useless city laws failed to make a difference is next to irrational. No point in explaining facts to gun nuts. They'll downplay it.
While gun bans won't completely eradicate violence, it will limit the number of things people can use. Don't give me that weak "What next, cars? Knives? rocks?". We will worry about that when such murders become just as bad as gun murders, which is highly unlikely. Though, Japan does have some strong laws on having knives and evens still, the murder rate is bloody low.
PS: The automatic weapons ban didn't work because, as the Justice Department said, the number of crimes involving such weapons were so low that they couldn't not give an accurate estimate on how much of a difference it made. Either ban guns or restrict them heavily. But don't you dare say the laws don't work when there are countless other nations with a ban in place and it works fine. Why? THEY ENFORCE THEIR LAWS CORRECTLY! Don't know what they do? Go to Google and do some research and stop repeating what you hear radio conservatives say.

That is all he gets? Scumbags like this should face LIFE because doing this kind of thing effects someone for the rest of their life. Sicko.

China should just back off. It is clear the islands are owned by Japan.

Oh god, no the LDP. Well, this will be the last election of Japan because by next election, there will be no more Japan. Those pillocks couldn't manage a fish tank, let alone a major and powerful nation.

This kind of structural disaster is very rare in Japan since they spend so much on their transportation infrastructure

I give up. America obviously can't keep their dogs on leaches so just end the military agreement with them and work on expecting Japan's military.

I hope he can do it.

Hamas won't stop. Even if the rockets stop, the terror attacks will continue. The only way to end this conflict is to take down the terrorist. This conflict will start up again, just like last time. MIGHT I ADD, the last time they had a ceasefire, the next conflict(6 months later) was the Gaza War.
This ceasefire thing means NOTHING! Gaza will continue to conduct terror attacks on Israel and 6 months from now, Hamas will launch more rockets at Israel. It's a cycle and the only way to break that cycle is to kill off Hamas. You can stop terrorism. Japan did it and they haven't had a terror attack since the Tokyo subway sarin gas attack in 1995. The Japanese Red Army is gone, the Aum Shinri Kyo is all but demolished, and it is safe to say the Seikijuku is no longer a threat.

It is ABOUT TIME! Finally he makes some sense! Yes. Japan should have nukes. Japan should also be allowed to expand its military and military spending. Japan has changed since WWII. There is no need to worry about it doing something "bad" anymore. I still don't want to see him in office though.

"And wait: “aged 18 and above”…? Does that mean Moe Date lets you “date” underage girls as well?" Well the age of majority in Japan IS 20 so...yeah, it does mean they allow you to date underage girls.

I never thought I'd say this EVER but I think either Japan needs to reform its legal system quickly or other nations like America needs to issue harsh sanctions against Japan for human rights violations. I am now afraid to enter Japan after this and may just completely cancel plans to live there after reading the book. I was, and kind of still am, a HUGE lover of Japan. I always knew about the "issues" there but I turned a blind eye to it and convinced myself it was rare. Big mistake.

Give'em the death penalty. Scumbags like this needs to be made into an example.

Sounds like this law won't last too long...either that or this issue will die off sooner or later and spending will return.

Am I the only one who wants these terrorist taken out by a drone or the Japanese Navy?
