another fine eg of Reuters "its the evil russians' propaganda. 'That task is being complicated by Japan’s decision to join Western sanctions against Moscow for its annexation of the Crimea peninsula in March and its involvement in a pro-Russian rebellion in eastern Ukraine.;'

FYI

Crimea was not 'annexed' the crimeans held a referendum(like the one in scotland only more honest and better conducted) and chose overwhelmingly to return to russia.

Russia has played no part in the rebellion. But US did play a part in the coup that led to the rebellion: rmember Vicki(F the EU) Nuland? ande her $5 billion admission : http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-eu-clash-on-how-to-install-a-puppet-regime-in-ukraine-victoria-nuland/5367794

japan is militarily occupied by the USA, which atom bombed them in 1945, yet they are worried about russians when russia is a short distance away! the real threat is already in japan ..and has been there sine 1945

to take the other side, Hashimoto is quite wrong in defending /'comfort women' as some sort of military necessity..Since when is rape ever acceptable. But its fun seeing US defend ITS practices; putting Hashimoto mayor of Osaka on same level as US regime

According to John Dower, Allied Occupation authorities imposed wide-ranging censorship on the Japanese media, which was imposed in September 1945 and continued until the (1952) end of the occupation,[8]:406 including bans on covering many sensitive social issues and serious crimes such as rape committed by members of the Occupation forces.[8]:412 The censorship hardened and grew over the months from its initial goal of suppressing militaristic and ultra-nationalistic ideas into also suppressing anything that was "'leftist' or even remotely critical of American policies".[8]:406,408 According to Eiji Takemae and Robert Ricketts, Allied Occupation forces suppressed news of criminal activities such as rape; on September 10, 1945 SCAP "issued press and pre-censorship codes outlawing the publication of all reports and statistics 'inimical to the objectives of the Occupation'."[18] (wikipedia)

Hashimoto is right: Okinawan historian Oshiro Masayasu (former director of the Okinawa Prefectural Historical Archives) writes: Soon after the U.S. marines landed, all the women of a village on Motobu Peninsula fell into the hands of American soldiers. At the time, there were only women, children and old people in the village, as all the young men had been mobilized for the war. Soon after landing, the marines "mopped up" the entire village, but found no signs of Japanese forces. Taking advantage of the situation, they started "hunting for women" in broad daylight and those who were hiding in the village or nearby air raid shelters were dragged out one after another.[2]: 111 Peter Schrijvers finds it remarkable that looking Asian was enough to be in danger of rape by American soldiers, as for example happened to some of the Korean comfort women that the Japanese had by force brought to the island.[3] Schrijvers writes that "many women" were brutally violated with "not even the least mercy".[3] Marching south, men of the 4th Marines passed a group of some 10 American soldiers bunched together in a tight circle next to the road. They were 'quite animated,' noted a corporal who assumed they were playing a game of craps. 'Then as we passed them,' said the shocked marine, 'I could see they were taking turns raping an oriental woman. I was furious, but our outfit kept marching by as though nothing unusual was going on.'[3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Japan

Lenanon is one of the few countries in the Middle East where for many years Christians and Muslims have lived together in peace. Lebanon though weak is a success which apparently Ahmadinejad would like to destroy.

It was israel NOT Iran that attacked lebanon in 1982 and 2006...killing thousands of people, and aided by lebanese christians. Dont blame Iran or president ahmadinejad

Yes truthhurts...thetruth DOES hurt..What truthhurts leaves out is that israel has waged a war against Lebanon, killing 1200 personjs mostly civilians, oppresses the palestinians, attacked vessels in internatinal waters killing 9 on board, and runs guns to dictatorial regimes.... Ahmadinejad is right in what he says...

Posted in: Ahmadinejad taunts Israel from border with Lebanon See in context

my letter to Japan todays editor: Hello editor Ive read an AP article on JT: ... which is not only shoddy journalism, making claims about president Ahmadinejad that have been proven false for years:

'Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly said Israel should be wiped off the map and denied the Holocaust'

but that any attempt to post the truth:

'The full quote translated directly to English:

"The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time".

Word by word translation:

Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).'

gets deleted by a unknown 'moderator'(aka censor), who told one commentator:

'"Moderator: Please note that Ahmadinejad has called for wiping Israel off the map. This is not in dispute, so every time you deny it on the JT discussion board, you not only post an inflammatory and offensive message, but you also make yourself look foolish. If you wish to continue posting on JT..."'

This is completely unacceptable...and will only serve to prove that quality journalism is in a steady decline.

regards

What I don't understand is why Barack Obama has been unable to catch or kill this guy after over 20 months in power.

why are people so clueless? If OBL hasnt been caught..thats because there was no intention of catching him...but the evidence says he died late in 2001..since then he given no interviews...all we get are the unsourced videos and now audio recordings.

I guess Bin Laden also had the gift of foresight then if he died so long ago and is still talking about events that happened just a few months ago.
