rjd jr, Be serious, read my piece. It is in reference to him doing the killing, which is something I personally have not done, nor wish to. He certainly has though.

Blue Tiger, Really no need for me to preach on at length and I'll keep it short. What on earth does Christianity have to do with elected political leaders of the western world ? Are they elected by the church ? No. Are they spiritual people ? Not really. The Bible will say not to drop bombs on babies no matter what your cause or revenge is. The Bible will not say that we have to pray for our "elected leadership". What are you going on about ?

Curlygene, Explain to me exactly what someone's tag name has to do with their argument ? Does this mean that you will always argue with people with straight hair ?

jerseyboy, If you learn to read people's posts properly before jumping to conclusions, I was talking about Metropolis publishing this article, as that is where it was published, not Japan Today. Metropolis is a listings magazine, Japan Today is a news and discussion site. Very different animals indeed. Myopic definitely.

Blue Tiger, "the Red Chinese have been killing my Christian brethren for more than half a century" ?? Goodness me, having read through your elongated rant, you really do have a chip on your shoulder about the Chinese don't you. And I'm Christian too thank you very much. Don't you think it's a bit of an insult to the Jewish faith to call the 2008 Olympics the Nazi Olympics ? You compare the Chinese to the Nazi Party, but where are the gas chambers in China ? Where are their tanks invading Asia ? And what Wars have the Chinese initiated recently ?

I guess that everyone is entitled to freedom of speech. And we don't all have the same political beliefs. Plus, I am not a huge fan of Chinese state history and their human rights (or lack of them). But Metropolis is not the right vehicle for someone such as Liddell.

Thank you (Princeska). I am slightly alarmed that an English-language listings magazine for Tokyo (Metropolis) has recruited a very biased political commentator for boosting it's readership. Are the editors at Metropolis not aware that the English speaking community in Tokyo has plenty of Chinese and plenty of politically-aware readers who would be upset with Liddell's articles ? Metropolis is supposed to be a listings magazine. What's with the politics ?

jammer, Not sure which part of the mountains you come from, but anyone with the most basic education will read into the current anti-Beijing Olympics media spin. Where were these commentators before China got the Olympics ? It is not a 'thought-provoking' article. It is biased and sensationalist. The 2008 Nazi Olympics ? Come on. Does anyone remember not so long ago the very similar media spin put on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction ? Forget about that murderer Saddam Hussein, Iraq was invaded based on lies and this is a very similar news spin. Yes, Metropolis should be ashamed of publishing an article based on one man's biased political view of the world.

Glad to see that there are some balanced educated posters out there (Pukey2). Of course, it would be easier to jump on this anti-China Olympics bandwagon with the likes of Truimvere. Triumvere, where were your anti-China statements before Olympic year ? And despite your way of thinking, some of us still believe that the Olympic Games should be free of world politics. I am also getting sick of this anti-China Olympics media spin. Metropolis magazine should be ashamed that it has succumbed to reactionary journalism from the likes of Liddell with the audacity of printing a political comment entitled the 2008 Nazi Olympics. Shameful.

If you are an author of an article being critical of one nation because of it's politics and history, you should always be aware of your own home nationality and it's politics and history. An Englishman being critical of China making Tibet a colony would be a hypocrite. An American being critical of China's political imprisonments would also be a hypocrite. I am not impressed by Chinese politics and their awful human rights record, but I am English therefore I cannot shout too loud myself. One thing I have noticed is how all the anti-Chinese statements have increased in Olympic year. Many, many previous Olympic hosts have used the Games as their political PR exercise. The Americans and the Russians should have been suspended from the Olympics because of their petty little Cold War Olympic boycotts. Leave the Games alone.

Do not boycott the Olympics. It is supposed to be a gathering of sport and politics should keep away. However, I am not altogether surprised that this one-sided piece of political journalism comes from CB Liddell, again. Comparing the Chinese to the Nazis ? I would be interested to know what nationality this author is, because if CB Liddell is American or British or French or Australian then this whole article would be very hypocritical would it not ? A message for you CB Liddell, never boycott the Olympic Games because of your political disagreements.

When I first arrived here 8 years ago I could not believe that adults cycled on the pavement. Being a Londoner, I used to cycle on the road but wondered why cabbies used to hoot me out of the way. I was told that it was illegal to cycle on the road !

Just came on here interested to see that there were 171 comments. Just found out that 101 of those were from the same person called eastokyo. Of his 101 comments I noticed that 0 were funny really.

Zorro, don't you think it's kind of disrespectful to the Hawker family to start suggesting that Ichihashi may not have murdered Lindsay and that someone else could have done it. There were no sightings of other men in the apartment block or with Ichihashi/ Ichihashi has previous cautions for attacks on women/ Ichihashi was on a mission (caught on tape) to get Lindsay Hawker back to his place. If you have strong enough evidence on a suspect who has done a runner then you indeed shouldn't jump to other conclusions.

Why don't the cops offer an amnesty to any friends or family who know his whereabouts if they give him up and at the same time threaten a max prison sentence to the same people if it transpires that they knew where he was ? I'd also like to see the cops exert more pressure on his family.
