There is one reason the U.S. decided to use the A-bombs. The Battle of Okinawa. The battle killed some 49 thousand American servicemen.

No. American casualties numbered some 12,500 killed and 36,500 wounded.

Thank you. I've read through that and find it downright scary. How anyone in their right mind can willingly accept that is beyond me.

Just curious but if you sign up for TikTok just what personal data do you have to provide? More than you would for Twitter or Facebook?

What about japan's Army that kill Thousands of Chinese in Nanking.

This, and several other similar comments here, are completely off-topic. Perhaps when the moderator has finished his post-lunch siesta they will in all fairness be removed.

Trump and his "great" generals are saying that it was an attack, because they want it to be, but it looks like a tragic, perhaps avoidable, accident.

Now, there is nowhere to see the newest Amateur Radios on the market in person.

Rocket Radio and the smaller one just up the street (Fuji ?) are still there.

I disagree with how you all say he deserve it. They were soldiers and serve the army. No matter what, they had did their duty, follow orders and sacrifice a lot for the nation.If they didn't follow orders, all they get is a bullet in their head for being disloyal to the army. No matter what, the nation had to take care of them for their service. Is their right. They fought for Japan.

Did you bother to read down the articles as far as this?

Austen Fyfe, an Australian POW, said Lee was notorious for his brutality and beat him repeatedly, including with a bamboo stick on the back of the head. Other prisoners said Lee would stalk their makeshift hospital and "beat up the people he thought to be well enough to work".

So, you are proud of the members, Japanese or Korean, of the Japanese army beating up sick POWs? This says a lot about you.

"I'm a pilot and hit so many cities, so many people on board, I have to be aware," said Koreman.

Maybe if you and your aeroplane and its passengers stayed on the ground instead of hitting so many cities the virus might not be spreading so rapidly.

Not sure gnawed is the right word for the condition of the steel frame.

I did once read that the first round under the hammer in a Japanese cop's pistol is a blank to enable a safe warning shot to be fired.

Short barreled revolvers are notoriously inaccurate.

A male friend of the woman was with her at the time and apprehended Nishikata on the balcony.

Police said they are questioning Nishikata about 14 other recent cases of women’s underwear being stolen in the same area.

Doesn't say much for the efficiency of the local police.

Only in Japan, police - drunk, at 10:30am, AND he was going to work at an international airport.

The article doesn't specifically mention that he was going TO work at the time, perhaps he was driving FROM work?

I think you read this wrong. The guard caught it from a returning traveller and he in turn passed it to the general population.

That is not what THIS says no matter how you twist the words:

Many of the new cases in Victoria, which had reined in the virus in May, have been traced back to one security worker at a hotel where returning travelers were held in quarantine,

Many of the new cases in Victoria, which had reined in the virus in May, have been traced back to one security worker at a hotel where returning travelers were held in quarantine............

So many of the new cases were people who were quarantined in case they had the virus but had it passed to them from one of the security workers guarding them? I would be seriously pissed off about that if I were one of them.

I don't expect him to see his family for quite some time if ever again.

If that is him in the picture attacking the police officer then he deserves a few years inside.

Given the protesters long history of attacking the police with knives, metal bars, petrol bombs and lasers, causing huge amounts of damage to the local infrastructure, it's hardly surprising that Beijing is cracking down. What else did they think might happen?

If this case had been in the UK the sentence would likely have been 25 years or even life but with a recommended minimum of 15 years. If he behaved whilst in prison and was not seen as a threat to anyone he would be released after 15 years or even a little less.
