A broad based international commission should be established (without consideration of expense) to investigate each and every incident in which an image of Hitler appears (no matter how artless it may be) in order to decided for the global public how they should receive it. Clearly, people cannot and should not be allowed to think for themselves and draw their own conclusions.

Not.

Posted in: U.S. prepared to use force against N Korea: U.N. envoy See in context

South Korea, long the object of North Korea's military passion, is no longer their target and is unlikely to be hit with nuclear weapons. 

Kim states that he wants a united Korean peninsula under his control. Hit the south with nuclear weapons? What's left to loot?

What would be interesting to see would be the offer of a great powers conference to guarantee the territorial integrity of North Korea.

Perhaps it could be modeled on the Treaty of November 15, 1831 by which Great Britain, France, Austria, Prussia, and Russia guaranteed the perpetual neutrality of Belgium and the integrity and inviolability of its territory. Such an agreement would be more successful than the first for who in the world would want to march an army through NK to attack a third party?

What Kim craves is international respect. It would cost nothing to offer it. If he fails to respond in the hoped for way, nothing lost. Of course, he might simply prefer the position of Caligula (who may have copied it from Tiberius): "oderint dum metuant" (Let them hate me as long as they fear me.) I could live with that and I wouldn't waste any time hating him when all he deserves is ...

Millions of 'angry' young men don't make for a civil society.Where making love (even with a machine) may prevent war then I know which alternative is preferable......,

Neither do millions of young men on "sex meds" make for a civil society.

Fun with Sally is just the latest method of male self-medication for growing social isolation. It is social self-obliteration and an understandable adjunct of rampant self-isolation facilitated by Internet voyeurism.

I actually bought one of these dolls when my marriage broke down several years ago. However, I eventually found out that when I went to work she was having an affair with my microwave. She's now living with a paraffin heater in Sendai and we never communicate.

Don't blame yourself, Sid. Your Sally just wanted some hot romance. Just playing the field. Maybe she's just an airhead. Maybe unstable. If the paraffin heater tries to get too close she might blow up.

How's the new model by the way?

Did you actually read what I wrote? I stand by the statement that they wouldnt have put it in there if they knew what would be happening now.

Sorry, Yubaru, but that just wasn't a well thought out statement. If the people who were responsible for writing and approving the constitution had stopped to consider every eventuality, nothing would have gotten done.

Allow me to make a similar statement and then tell me it isn't nonsense as well: "If they knew what was happening now, they would have required that everyone be armed."

Posted in: Okinawa marks 72nd anniversary of fierce WWII ground battle See in context

First, thank you for your comments, Hammerhead. I hope they were widely read.

In the case of Okinawa, I think 150,000 out of a population of 500,000 would clearly constitute a genocide.

First of all, it is important to agree on terminology. I would agree with the following definition of genocide: "Acts committed with INTENT (emphasis mine) to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group". (UN Genocide Convention, 1948)

While the death toll among Okinawans was huge, it was not an act of genocide. 

(It seems that some people would make a case for Okinawan independence based on victimhood rather than on the will of the Okinawan people as expressed in a plebiscite.)

The purpose of the Pearl Harbor attack was a response to the American seizure of Japanese assets and the breaking of trade agreements that would have crippled Japan both domestically (economically) and overseas.

I think you are referring to this sequence of Roosevelt Administration actions:

(1) 1939: US termination of 1911 commercial treaty with Japan;

(2) July 1940: US Export Control Act (embargo on essential defense materials and later aviation fuel and scrap metals)

(3) (effective) October 1940: embargo on scrap steel and iron excepting Britain and the Western Hemisphere;

(4) July 1941: Japanese assets frozen in response to IJA occupation of French Indo-China

(5) late July 1941: embargo on export to Japan of all grades of oil.

(source: Robert Higgs, Independent Institute: "How U.S. Economic Warfare Provoked Japan's Attack on Pearl Harbor")

These actions would indeed severely hamper Japan's ongoing military campaign in China.

The purpose of the Pearl Harbor attack was a response ...

"response"?

The purpose of the Pearl Harbor attack was not a prod to reopen trade negotiations or punish the Roosevelt Administration for putting the Empire of Japan in an "untenable position" as Foreign Minister Toyoda wrote at the end of July 1941. It was to gain time to secure Japanese conquests against counterattack.

Some will argue that Japan had a right to build an empire. Hadn't western nations done just that? If one accepts this reasoning then isn't one therefore recognizing the right of any nation to empire? Unless, of course, one believes that one sort of empire is more beneficial and compassionate towards the conquered than another. Rubbish whether it's Japanese, American, British and whomever.

What on earth has the Hirohito comment got to do with anything?

You mean "Emperor Hirohito", don't you? The point of mentioning him in my posting is that, ostensibly, the Government's, IJA's and IJN's actions were in accordance with his will. Necessary fiction if the military and industrialists were to enjoy the glory and wealth accrued by empire building. That's the whole point of empires, isn't it?

utorsa:

Given that America genocidally slaughtered over a quarter of the island's entire civilian population it is understandable that the people of Okinawa want to kick the U.S. military out.

"Genocide" you say? I suggest you consult a dictionary before you use that word again.

America initiated military action against Japan before Pearl Harbor. 

As for the AVG, a.k.a. the "Flying Tigers", yes they did arrive in the Chinese theater of operations before the attack on Pearl Harbor. However, they arrived (1) three years after the start of the Imperial Japanese Army's "annihilation campaign" in north China which, by the way, was approved by Emperor Showa (Hirohito). (2) That was followed by another such campaign in 1940 against the Chinese called the "Three Alls": "kill all, burn all, loot all".

Have you opened your dictionary yet?

One major difference between the AVG and the IJN's attack on Pearl Harbor was this: the former was in a country occupied by an aggressor, Japan, the latter directly against the territory of a sovereign nation. The purpose of the Pearl Harbor attack was to cripple the US Pacific fleet so it could not intervene against the IJS's planned seizure of SE Asian resources.

I heard your arguments nearly 40 years ago in Japan. They were rubbish then and they are rubbish now.

I agree with Ike. What is presented as "news" is much of the problem.

Main stream news services and the alternative media of this "informational" Internet Age that state or imply that a perpetrator is representative of a group are responsible for preparing the stage for such incidents. In many cases the perpetrator turns out to be someone with serious mental problems which were overlooked or dismissed by relatives, friends and, if reported, by authorities.

Restraint by all media is what is required. It is not suppressing free speech, but a call for self-discipline. I do not expect this to be demonstrated soon, but the biggest players might lead by example rather than wait for government censorship.

Posted in: Do you think a man holding a door open for a woman, holding her chair for her when she sits down, or giving up his seat for her are outmoded gestures of politeness or do they still have their place in society? See in context

Holding a door and giving up a seat are actually much different from holding a chair.

The first two gestures are often made - and in my opinion - and should be made no matter the gender of the recipient as a "chivalrous" gesture and even obligatory if there is evident need.

The chair business normally doesn't involve strangers so a man may hold the chair safely. Whether it is a gesture meant to show respect or merely to impress depends on the people and situation.

Finally, I'd like to see more gestures like these in Japan, but I think they are still considered a mark of eccentricity.
