That bomb fell upon men, women, and children who had never picked up a weapon or vowed to fight the United States. This was a war-crime, plain and simple. No amount of rationalization will justify the murdering of thousands of innocents. Play your "this ended the war and spared millions on both sides" and "we didn't start it" and "we needed to keep the Russians out of Japan" arguments if you must. Those were children that died. Burnt to ashes in seconds. One of them could have been yours. The United States is a nation of war criminals until it admits it acted in an inhumane and barbarous manner and pays reparations to the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then it must remove the dozens of bases it still has in Japan. Occupation is not humane.

This guy has the dream gig of a thousand lifetimes. I'll have to look him up sometime. I hardly every look at the guys to begin with.

I'm surprised they didn't say English teachers. That's a dodgy group all around... and I should know.

Wish the U.S. protected its markets in this way.

Based on the murderer's sentence, one would think a human life is almost worthless in Japan.

Japanese women are the best in the world. No others even come close.

Japan's non-aggression self-defense policy is noble to be sure, but it has made the country a victim time and again when it comes to those who will not forget its wartime aggression. If Japan is to stand on its own again, it must insist upon the removal of dozens of American bases across its country and restore its military standing to react to those who would do harm to the Japanese people. No more Chinese ships stealing corral. No more dithering over the Senkaku islands. No more threats from ISIS. If Japan wants to live in the world community, then it must stand on its own two feet and participate as an equal among nations.

Love Hotels are the best. Really.
