Posted in: By The Numbers: The atomic bombing of Hiroshima See in context

I'm glad these terrible weapons haven't been used since. The human race is doing well in that WW3 has not occurred. As a former marine who volunteered for NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) training and taught a class in nuclear weapons I've come full circle as a hawk to a dove. I hope we can abolish these weapons. I pray for the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. My love for Japan comes from the fact of her emergence from the devastation of nuclear attack and defeat to a place that exemplifies the best in all of us. Give peace a chance.

Make them go to AA meetings and if this happens again terminate them. I've been clean and sober since 02. I bet those jobs have excellent benefits and pensions. If I make it back to Japan my focus will be the food, the women, the scenery and the shinkasen.

China should leave the past alone while she builds up her military. I'd certainly support a strong, remilitarized Japan. The Japanese are an example of discipline and dedication recognized by all the world.

RIP. "Wake up Little Susie"and "Bye Bye Love",I remember those songs. Although I'm a Motown and British invasion fan, I liked those records. True Rock and Roll. "Wake up Little Susie" had to have been very risque back in those days. These songs will live on.

Posted in: What makes people want to move to Japan? See in context

I'd love to live in Japan because of Toho studios. I am 54 and still love all the kaizu. I'd run home from school as a boy to watch those monster movies. Japan is king of scifi. the anime is also number one. A creative and imaginative nation. I hope I can visit it again before I die.

Put that sick bastard to death. Those young women were enjoying themselves. This just shows once again how tourists, especially women, must be very careful when travelling. I'm sorry this happened. Those young ladies probably saved up for a nice vacation then here comes this wacko. Damn.

Posted in: Taiwanese activists rally against 'Japanese militarism' See in context

the Taiwanese should make peace with the past. Japan has every right to rebuild it's military. I support this. Japan has moved forward and so should all of it's neighbors. Time for all of their whining to stop. How can you drive forward constantly looking in the rear view mirror?

Posted in: Brazilian police arrest man suspected of triple murder in Japan See in context

So this guy ran back to Brazil to evade justice? What a coward. Dispatch a team from Japan to go and get him, then send Japan's new carrier to sail into Rio's harbor to show that Tokyo doesn't play.

I'm glad that Okinawa will have a Hilton. This should of happened decades ago. I was stationed there in 1980-81 and had a good time. These days I stay connected via internet radio. I wish only the best for this beautiful island and its people.

A 19 year old is not a child. He's old enough to enlist in the armed forces. Matter of fact make him do just that. Enlist or prison.

Rip, Mr Ansara. He was also good in episode of "the Outer Limits" as a soldier accidently transported from the future. Excellent actor, especially during the 60s.

I hope she wins. They are business men and like any business. They can sue and be sued. There are laws here in the US that say you can sue the local dopeman. Good luck to her.
