I'm pretty sure Koreans are just pissed that Japanese politicians/high officials/media heads downplay/deny the atrocities committed by Imperial Japanese Army. South Korea and China aren't the only ones who are acting like a child here. Japan is doing that as well. One of the problem that prevents Japan/Japanese people from actually acknowledging the atrocities committed by their ancestors lies within its culture of pride. I'm pretty sure South Korea was quiet about all these issues, until Japanese politicians started visiting Yakusuni Shrines/denied the atrocities.

Not a single western nation (or other Asian nations for that matter) make WWII an official tool diplomatic and political tool as China and South Korea do.

OssanAmerica, I'm pretty sure they would flip out as well if German officials/media denied the Holocaust.

That is true. However, not all countries deny their war atrocities, or downplay their roles in them. It also doesn't help Japan's stance when their high ranking political/media officials deny war crimes.

Besides, the JSDF is much more skilled and disciplined than Korea or China's forces.

I guess you don't know anything about military training at all if you really think JDSF is better than ROKMC, especially in terms of both skill and discipline.

Anyways, what's wrong with hosting their own military exercise in their own territory? Didn't Japan conduct their own military exercise in Sengaku Islands as well? Look at this irony over here LMAO

@Kickboard Yep, I said that PC is better than PS4, and it was my brother who got it.

Posted in: Sony back at top of console sales after eight years See in context

Too bad that there are BARELY any good games out. I own PS4 and I can't find any good games other than Second Son. Step up your game Sony. You need to release more games ASAP. I want backward compatibility as well if you guys are too lazy to release new games. I seriously had to buy this childish 4 player co-op game because there weren't ANY good 4 player co-op games out when I had to get one for my party.

@bonestructure LOL that's like saying Jewish people(Those who weren't alive during the holocaust) should forget the Holocaust just because they weren't there. Do you expect these people to forget about this event when Japanese politicians and high ranking officials constantly deny its existence?


They are NOT trying to shame regular Japanese people at all. They are just trying to raise awareness, and put an end to Japanese politicians' constant denial regarding this incident. That's like saying Jewish people are trying to shame German people because they are raising Holocaust memorial monuments/museums around the world.

Posted in: Apple will fix faulty iPhone 5 models See in context

HAHAHAHA. I thought Apple only produced high quality, non defect products? What happened to their so called quality? Lmao. My father's iPhone 4 broke 4 TIMES already within a year of getting it while my Galaxy S4 didn't even have any problems although I had it for one year or more. My friend's new iPhone 5s' screen cracked WITHIN a day of getting it. She dropped it accidentally while she was sitting on a chair. While I drop my S4 err day everyday, and I still haven't gotten a single crack on it. LOOOOL

I guess you forgot to mention that those investment were made for the benefit of JAPANESE people who migrated to Korea.

Do you really think Japan invested that much money for the benefit of Korean people? Hell no. My grandmother LIVED through Korean annexation, and she told me all about her experience with Japanese occupation.

Posted in: Toshiba sues S Korean rival for corporate spying See in context

I just love how you guys are blaming Korean companies for this kind of things when you guys should be blaming JAPANESE workers who brought information/technolgies to those companies. Maybe they can start treating them and paying them better? Why do you think Japanese college students are starting to think Samsung as prospective company to work for when they graduate? They pay better and don't force early retirements on them, unlike Japanese companies. Japanese people are the ones who BRING technologies/information to South Korean companies, because they offer what Japanese companies don't offer.

Posted in: Apple releases security fix for Macs after iOS flaw See in context


Only reason why Apple computers don't have that much of a prolbem with viruses/securities is because hackers don't even bother to make viruses for Apple computers. Why should they spend hours and hours of work to create a virus for Mac when they represent small group compared to big windows group?

I don't know why you guys constantly say that Japan is a democratic country when it's not... How can a one party system b e a democratic system? How can Japan be democratic when farmers receive 4 votes when city dwellers receive 1 vote during elections?
