End nuclear energy. That's how you prevent nuclear disasters.

As an American, am I responsible for Nagasaki and Hiroshima? I did not make that choice. We should all be beyond this racism by now.

The more things they ban, the more they admit their security is lacking.

If they are allowed by law to kill a maximum of 20,000 and they are within the law, why is it being frowned on? They are not doing anything illegal. Do not judge another country's practices, especially when it is a part of their way of life. They are not hurting other people. Live and let life. Stop judging.

Posted in: The burkini, the veil, the niqab: what French law says See in context

Countries have a right to what they allow. Other countries have no right to tell another what they should allow. Also, women in the Middle East are not allowed to wear nail varnish, and no one is challenging the law for rights. So why are people challenging for wearing a veil in the courts? France has its own culture and should not be forced to incorporate another culture into their own.

Is there an end in sight to the shame Trump places on Americans when he says these things?

Posted in: A-bomb survivors want Obama to meet them, apologize in Hiroshima See in context

I completely understand because they were innocent victims and had nothing to do with the decision to attack the US. However, our president cannot apologize for the actions of the people who made that decision to bomb Japan back then. They are asking someone to apologize who did not make the decision.The best thing our president can do, is sign an agreement to dispose of an amount of current nuclear bombs, which I think many Americans would support in light of the atrocious damage it does to human beings.

However, anime depicts homosexuality and transgender as totally acceptable. Especially Ixion Saga Dimension Transfer (or DT to fans). ????

Posted in: Police officer fires warning shot after being charged at by knife-wielding 15-year-old boy See in context

This officer should be commended on his judgment. It was not a fatal incident, and the perpetrator was emotionally irrational. Later, I'm sure the perpetrator gets the support or help he needs, the victim heals, and everyone is ok. I'm disgusted by how barbaric Americans are: that they think killing a 15 year old boy is the solution.

The fact that he turned himself in is one of the admirable aspects of Japanese culture. Violence will happen everywhere, but how many feel the gravity of what they have done and actually take responsibility? Truly a horrific crime, but also an example of a culture that is compassionate at heart. Who waits for the murderer's wounds to heal before charging him? Japan. Americans have become too violent and bloodthirsty for revenge in cases such as this.

Posted in: Bodies of woman, 8-month-old son found in car in Gifu See in context

There needs to be a major mental health awareness movement in Japan. More than just awareness of illnesses, but stress the facts that people can receive help and will get better. I think most Japanese still believe having mental illness is a death sentence. I don't think they understand that with treatment they can live better lives. With proper counseling, and perhaps antidepressants, this woman and her child would have had a higher chance of living rather than no treatment at all. I hope an organization from another country will take action there soon.
