Posted in: Do you think the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were morally justifiable? See in context

Some excellent examples of moral relativism here. The three justifications seem to be that no one knew the effects (bullshit), that it was okay then but would not be okay now because it's a different World now (bullshit) and that "they would have done it to us if they'd had the chance".

The third justification may be factually correct but it's a very poor justification. It's like saying that if you believe someone would rape your daughter it's alright for you to rape his first. Just because someone else might do something morally repugnant doesn't give you a blank cheque.

Killing non combatants is always morally wrong.

My friend and I tonight were talking about getting a one way ticket to Japan because the women of Japan are so beautiful.

"Helium gas by itself is not toxic or dangerous, but that does not mean it is safe to inhale, as this poor little girl found out. It's also highly flammable."

Helium is noble gas, which means it does not burn in any ordinary sense of the word. It takes the kind of energy found in the red giant phase of the Sun to get an exothermic reaction out of it.

As long as the people of Japan are happy with the videos, that's good enough for me.

@smithinjapan "let's hope the ladies (and staff) get well soon. They don't deserve this by any means."

You're preaching to the converted.

@fizzbit "Graeme Young, you're just repeating yourself. You could say that 100 times, it's not gonna help unless you start putting some examples."

Okay here's one example off the top of my head.

The following link concerns the 18th Century celebrity and aristocrat Susanna Montgomerie, Countess of Eglinton. It contains numerous references to how the men of the 18th century fawned over her. That was 300 years ago.

Other examples of female celebrities who've had a legion of men fawning over them are Cleopatra, she had none other than Julius Caesar fawning over her. Julie Christie, Elizabeth Taylor, Amelia Earhart, Marylin Monroe, Catherine Bach, Cybill Shepherd, Dolly Parton, Barbara Eden, Dorothy Dandridge, Grace Kelly, Lili St. Cyr, Audrey Hepburn, Clara Bow, Marlene Dietrich, Kim Novak, Jane Seymour, Ann Boleyn, Brigitte Bardot, Vera Lynn, Jane Russell...

There are thousands more... Female celebrity is not a new concept.

Fizzbit, men have been fawning en mass over female celebrities since ancient Egyptian times. The only reason it appears more prevalent now is because global communications like the internet make it easier now.

FizzBit, males of the species have always fawned over female celebrities. This is not a new phenomenon.

Vanostran...

World War II was nearly eighty years ago. This is now.

The rest of the World does not owe the United States of America a living.

If I were Japanese, I wouldn't listen to a word the USA says. Britain was the USA's stooge in foreign wars for years and have only stopped now because our Government have cut the military to the point there is no power left to project into foreign wars.

Now that Britain can't be in that role any more, the USA are trying to rile Japan up to militarize with them instead.

The UK was greatly damaged in terms of our international reputation by following America into crazy oil adventures that had no need to happen. Now, we are a country that nobody trusts.

Japan leads the World in high technology. Japan builds the best high tech machines. Japan produced some of the best music, art, anime and films the World has ever seen. Japan is a great country and does not need to be involved in the USA's stupid oil wars.

Getting involved in the USA's colonial adventures has done my country (Britain) nothing but damage. If I were Japanese, I'd be wary of this.
