U.S. should pull all soldiers out of S. Korea, close all bases in Japan, and let Japan, S. Korea either find a way to defend their own nations--or let those nations play extortionist Kim Jong-Un's game by supplying N. Korea enough food and technology to stay safe for another year or two.
Eventually, Japan, S. Korea will have to surrender to Kim under threat of nuclear annihilation or fight Kim on their own. Why should U.S. fight Japan/S. Korea's war?

If my memory still serves me, there is an element in Japanese culture Japanese call: "Kaze-no-ko." It's the idea that a moderate degree of hardship, such as some exposure to the weather, toughens a child to become a better, healthier person. Maybe it's a reason why there are still Japanese.

Why should Japanese taxpayers pay for one additional minute of this scumbag's life? Hanging is too good for this creep!

Suicides become especially evil when the "jerk" doesn't take precautions to make sure that no one else is injured or traumatized by his/her actions. Just saying "I don't care!" doesn't give you the right to hurt other people.

@Stewart Gale: Well, can you blame the editors for wanting personal descriptions to be within what they deem to be foreign guidelines of political correctness? (I wonder if a Japanese newspaper version of this report was somewhat more informative in reporting the older ladies' descriptions of the suspect... Agreed that the Japanese version couldn't have been much less specific!)

Let China tear down its Mao Tse-Dong statues and posters before deprecating the affairs of other nations. Mao slaughtered and starved far more people than all the war mongers entombed at Yasukuni combined.

U.S. will urge Japan to do nothing if nuked by N.K. Better to give more food to N.K. and allow N.K. to develop more sophisticated weapons.
