We do not want Japan become a battle field of the war. U.S. Forces have engaged in countless wars in foreign lands. They like to fight in the gardens of others.

I would liken Japan to be more of a latrine than a garden.

Japan staggers around at least 2 generations behind, and completely out of touch with, the advanced nations of the world. Sad.

Honesty, integrity, sound planning, and a sense of responsibility are, in reality, not highly developed attributes in the Japanese way of doing things. Sad.

Makes you realize just how honest and courageous Germany has been and how shamefully weak, disingenuous, deluded, and dishonest Japan continues to be.

What a pathetic little country this is. The 2020 Olympics will be a smoke and mirrors exercise unseen since the Berlin venue in 1936.

Now, if "by children" is in reference to maturity level, the voting will be open to almost the entirety of the Japanese population. Good for them.

Sincerely, good luck to them... However, there is a time and a place for everything, and the floor of parliament is not the appropriate place to do that, irrespective of your particular orientation...

When the Japanese get it in their mind to do something, they can often do it quite efficiently and well. 

LOL... Now THAT is really quite priceless.

Ahhh, the important bit:

Her dyed short hairstyle, colorful makeup and affable nature are not what one would expect from an undertaker. Kimura's philosophy on dignity in death, about which she almost feels "as if I were possessed," would seem to be guided by a higher power.

*2 Operates underwater at a depth of 50 meters for 30 consecutive minutes (test conditions set by Casio).

I daresay the veracity of Japanese product inspection, testing, and QA should not be taken at face value. Let's just say there are precedents in this regard.

Posted in: San Francisco mayor accepts 'comfort women' statue; Osaka to end sister-city ties See in context

But if you mean "kidnapping 200,000 women" as "the act" then no, Japan should never admit to an act that never happened, an undocumented unproven false claim which US records from during and after WWII, as well as a 7 year multiagency investigation by the US government found no evidence to support. A number of South Korean scholars question also question this claim with at least one having been persecuted by the South Korean judicial system for expressing a view counter to that held by South Korea.

The above is an excellent testimony as to why Japanese universities are amongst the world's worst.

It is always amusing to read statements such as:

But the economies of Japan's major trading partners are likely to slow in the next year, he said. "We therefore we expect real export growth to slow from 6 percent year-on-year this year to 3 percent in 2018."

The reality is:

Japan - Next year, growth will decelerate somewhat as the tailwinds that propelled the economy this year fade away. Moreover, persistent geopolitical tensions could add upward pressure on the safe-haven yen, hurting the all-important external sector. FocusEconomics panelists see the economy growing 1.2% in 2018, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2019, they see growth at 1.0%.

That's the ticket. Toss a glass of water onto the inferno, leave things be, and hope they take of themselves. Einstein must have been prophesying about Japanese corporate culture when he coined his quote about "and expecting a different result"... (you know the one).
