Posted in: Hiroshima not shy about its atomic bomb legacy See in context

ReformedBasher Frungy's analogy is not even related. Personal war is different from political war and this is what Frungy doesnt get. And with regards to "war is between military"...giz, do you think Japan just let their soldiers decide on their own to sail to Hawaii and do a kamikaze?

Frungy...I do understand you.But I guess its you who dont understand what you are trying to say here. Japan can use your argument as well as US will use the same argument (atleast im putting my shoes on both sides).

But if you are the US and you have the A-bomb, and Japan stubbornly dont want to surrender, and you know that somehow using the A-bomb will stop the war, what would you do? Its in your hands to push the button, whether to continue the massive killings done by Japan or sacrifice a few to stop it. Well, i guess what happened was history!

@ Frungy - War is between countries, one trying to cease the other's sovereignty and take it as its own, even at the expense of killing the innocents. For Japan, this was most of what they did across the Pacific, installing their proxy government to all countries they captured. Using the A-bomb constitutes a different goal and that was stopping the war.

@shinohara - you just made me laugh. As if you are saying that "we can do war but dont use A-bomb, just killing cause no one argues about it". From the start, killing is inhumane and that was most Japanese Imperial Army did during WW2. Tell that to those people who suffered the loss of their relatives. Bet its really hard for you to understand if you are on the other side of the fence. Do you think the A-bomb would have drop at Hiroshima if Japan didnt started the war? Wish Japan was talking about peace even before the war then none of this happened.

@ Frungy - not sure if you were born just born yesterday.

For starters, if Hiroshima is another country or if its not part of Japan, then sure you can say that. Second, the reason why US dropped the A-bomb in Hiroshima was strategic. And if i put myself on the shoes of the Japanese, probably the same strategic reason why they attack Pearl Harbor, even if US wasn't involved in the war at that time.

not sure about the death penalty... the judicial system here is so bad that one cannot even have a life-term penalty for "abandoning a dead body" even if that person already committed the crime.

this is one of the biggest problem in this country, just blame it to someone else.

The old ones should blame no one but themselves since they are too busy trying to be selfishly rich during their times that they forgot to impose values to the next generation.

Posted in: Drunken man arrested after man falls to death off train platform See in context

aside from the alcohol problem, there is also a big issue with regards to japanese behaviour/manner. They dont seem to care nor concern with others that they dont know in their sorroundings. Take for example a man entering a train and just dashed inside bumping with other without even saying sorry (or atleast say "sumimasen" for him/her to pass through).

Its funny Japanese talk about office manner but they dont seem to carry it outside the office.

if she is considered minor in Japan, should it be that the authorities also arrest the parents?

Trainspotters doesnt need a senpai-kohai just to behave properly. They are not kids anymore. Its common sense to always act in good manner which most japanese (especially men) doesnt have. They tend to only practice or show good manners inside the office, but outside they are insensitive.

Notice when you are inside a train, they dont even say "sumimasen" when they pass through you, they just ram you off as if you are getting in their way, not even considering if you are woman, an old fellow, nor a pregnant woman.

" I think the best thing is to accept that your husband has a kinky aspect to his personality and leave it at that."

Typical "shoganai" japanese syndrome. If its out of the normal, then it is something that needed fixing, or healing.

"We hope to do some other kind of PR activity like this again in the future" ... but from July 2008, around 10,000 people visited (some including their parents). Guess Japan needs to think of another PR strategy.

Unfortunately, this is really true not only for men but most japanese. That's why when they are in trouble, financialy and emotionally, they tend to commit suicide, rather than asking for an assistance atleast from a neighbor. How many japanese know their neighbors anyway?

DentShop > I read this in Washington Post so yes, this is an AP.

I also read in a different article that Kim said on an interview that she didn't even felt pressured nor felt nervous. She added that it didn't felt like Olympics at all and that its just like other competitions she participated previously. The article also mentioned that S.Korea looks her up as a national hero.
