Yeah... they'll take full responsibility for it when the world's media talks about how radiation levels have gone up because of Japan..

@smithinjapan, where in heck are you getting this “world’s” media from??? The article says that only China and South Korea are opposed…. We all know that those two countries will oppose anything Japan wants to do just to oppose. What about all of the other southeast asian countries? What about Canada and the US? If South Korea and China are opposed and no other countries are opposed, I would be inclined to say that there is no global opposition.

Wow… so much negativity and cynicism in these comments! IMHO very one-sided points of views.

There are many aspects of Japanese “culture” that can be improved on, for sure.

There are also good aspects, which I’m sure the negative commenters are aware of.

But have you ever thought that maybe what “Westerners” view as bad might have some positive aspects?

Example:

They are all wearing suits because this is a ceremony. They are not robots. There is a time and a place for everything, and I think you will find that young Japanese people very much have individual tastes and expressions in their personal attire.

What’s disappointing is:

1) No value of human life

2) No mental capacity to think beyond the next day (cash debt)

So depressing to think of how many more people there may be like this one. I blame bad parenting… just saying.

Living in a society having too repress your true feelings, will leave you to suicide easily

I feel there is some truth to that in Japan.

@kaimycahl, don’t take this personally, and I know there were probably a lot of things you wanted to say, but I did not even attempt to read your comment because it was so long.

Gross. But I do wonder why stories like this makes the national news.

Perhaps because this type of sexual crime is so unusual outside of Japan.

I don’t know what country you are in, but I guess it depends on your definition of sexual crime. Generally speaking, I don’t think Japan is any worse or better than other developed countries. It might depend on what kind of sexual crime and what kind of sexual crimes get put into the news. In Canada, I doubt something like this would even make the local news. Does that mean Canada has less sexual crimes than Japan? Surely not.

Death toll of victims? Wouldn’t just “Death toll” suffice? Just saying.

Without diplomatic international presence, you leave an open field to annexation, dictatorship or violence.

I think I agree. There may be options like having Japanese diplomats remain in the Ukraine but their families evacuate.

Who is going to take care of the Japanese civilians working/living/going to school in the Ukraine?

Is anyone else disturbed by how much violent crime goes on here? Every other day there is a story about some horrific event, some of which would even make America revile in disgust. 

I think if you wanted to, you could make all sorts of connections between how much violent crimes have gone up in this country or that, but I also think that violent crimes have gone up on the whole around the world with parents taking less responsibility (not always by choice, sometimes out of necessity) and leaving social development up to schools and other entities. I think that one of the basic but important lessons kids need to learn from their parents all the way up to adulthood is how precious “life” is.
