Japan is very capable of defending itself. If it needs atomic deterrence, then get it. Trump is not a transient aberration, he is the foreruner of a 180 degree turn in foreign relations. The world needs a new polieman.

I agree with all those who want the U.S. bases to close and leave Japan, and South Korea and Europe! Enough is Enough! We the U.S.A. has carried the burden too long. Bring out military home. I will enjoy watching S.E. Asia deal with the Chinese and a resurgent Russia! Good Bye!

Posted in: Growing chorus denounces sexist Silicon Valley culture See in context

While I do not deny gender discrimination and harassment I would also present "another part of the jungle" women who use these allegations to compensate for a lack of talent and initiative or just plain envy. men are sexually harassed also where are the statistics? Every time we hear allegations we should carefully consider the circumstances.

Posted in: Anger, confusion as Japan revives militaristic edict See in context

Ok lets put aside on one hand accusations of "sabre rattling" on the other of sitting in ashes "woe is our world". Abe has made a clear statement with the Nationalist school and the video-The Japanese must prepare and be prepared to defend their country. Trump aside, do not depend on the US, the American people have had enough with being the police force of the world. This holds true for Europe as well.

This is music to my ears! The days of interventionism are numbered. The sooner we are out of asia the better. The USA doesn't need any of those countries, although i am a japanophile i would still advocate immediate evacuation of all military personnel.

Zed Philips you could apply that statement to the UK, US, Japan and many other so called democratic countries. The only difference between Russian and the West is that we are allowed to believe that we have a democracy, but it is in fact the thinnest veneer to hide those who really have the power, who really pull the strings from their multi billion pound / dollar / yen empires.

Zed add rubles-yuan-euros-rupees and you've got it!

How about FREEDOM! That is the one word used to describe my country that I have heard from one end of this planet to the other over the past 50 years of intense travel and dialogue with people from every socio-economic and cultural mileu. And this is why we are hated.

I agree in principal with you but the governments had to assume increasingly, responsibility because of the culture of greed that has come to plague so many societies since the 1970s. My own here in the US leading the "storm of Greed". But that is changing despite the de-humanizing effects of social media,et al. The growing movement is "Back to Community"

Posted in: U.S. center gives atomic bomb images to Hiroshima museum See in context

The full documentary films taken by the U.S. Army immediately after occupation were finally released in 1976, I believe that is the date. You can view it on youtube. The films were not released because the U.S. government was afraid of the American peoples reaction to it.

Posted in: A-bomb survivors want Obama to meet them, apologize in Hiroshima See in context

If Obama apologizes for the atomic bombing it will only serve to re-inforce him and his presidency as weak and ineffectual. The Democratic party already facing critical internal problems i.e., Sanders. would bare the brunt of public hostility...it is a no winner

I can't say that I disagree with you folks about Trump-man, But HE could win! That is the nightmare in waiting. Why(although I know the answer to this)do the democrats insist on running a "wounded" candidate, who is neither trusted nor liked by a majority of Americans,IS the real question??? ANY THOUGHTS,ANYONE?

The "Obama" deal with Iran was negotiated by all world powers not just the US, and by the way the US is no longer dependent on Arab oil, the greedy fossil fuel companies are! but I would withdraw the navy from the Persian gulf and just about everywhere else, let them all kill each other
