This is sheer folly since japan itself now actually has nuclear weapons in its possession and or has nuclear weapons at a screwdriver's turn away per japan's politician's comments in the media these past years.

So, I find it utterly interesting that the same people who jeered America's presence in East Asia are now jeering China. Go figure.

In the same breath, there are those who jeered, and still do, America's presence yet they are uncharacteristicly quiet lest the realize that they were wrong all along only to realize now that china all along has been the real threat.

How times have changed when the US leadership isn't up to snuff.

Wow. You know very well young teenage japanese boys were used by the japanese govt as suicide bombers on okinawa to blow up allied tanks yet you intentionally refused to acknowledge that fact ( japanese govt admits it, why don't/can't you) and you try to ignore that Ketsu Go ( use japanese civilians to help fight the allies to the last japanese ) was an order by the japanese govt and then you try to pretend what it has to do with hiroshima when it was explicitly stated by the japanese govt that Ketsu Go was implemented.

That is an extremely disingenuous discussion.

He better accept Covid as a norm and open the border door wider.

Kishida recently met with medical experts to get their professional consensus based on their 2.5 years of research. Long story short, they said that covid is now an endemic and that it's fine to open up japan.

Upon hearing that news kishida said that he will have further meetings with other 'experts' to see how to progress with covid.

In other wotds, kishida didn't like the first group of experts' opinions so he's vibing to the next group of 'experts' to understand the situation which means unnecessarily prolonging this so-called pandemic.

I shudder to think that you would rather have seen the complete destruction of japan by the order of the japanese govt of the order of Ketsu Go which demanded that all japanese civilians fight to the last japanese.

That is the true evil.

Voice of okinawa?

Anybody who knows okinawan history knows very well about the Iron Student Corp when boys aged 14-17 year old boys ( some reportedly as young as 9 years old ) were ordered to be suicide bombers to blow up allied tanks.

And everyone knows about Ketsu Go which was a japanese govt order to have all japanese civilians to fight to the last japanese.

It's a cop out of japanese revisionists to deny these facts.

When the japanese govt implemented the Ketsu Go decision.

Japanese don't like to openly talk about these harsh truths.

The Iron Student Corp. Boys typically aged 14-17 but some reports of boys as young as 9 years old to roll uder allied tanks with a loaded backpack of dynamite. Suicide bombers in other words.

The Japanese employed civilians to fight and as human shields, launched huge numbers of kamikaze attacks and fought until the bitter end. Difficulties in distinguishing civilians from soldiers meant US forces often fired on civilians unknowingly. By the time the battle was over, only half of Okinawa’s pre-war civilian population of 300,000 was left. Those who remained suffered from starvation, as Japanese forces claimed their food for themselves.

To help fight the Americans, the Japanese ordered almost 1,800 schoolboys aged 14 to 17 into combat. Many of them were used as suicide bombers and only around half survived the battle.

So, the two bombs literally saved japan and the japanese from total destruction because Ketsu Go was a real thing and the japanese were literally going to fight to the last japanese.

And to think none of that would have happened if the japanese hadn't started the war.

Yes, studying complete history is essential. I suggest you get started instead swallowing japanese revisionisist 'history'.

Japan broke The Nine-Power Treaty by attacking china which was stipulated in the Nine-Power Treaty that if any of the nine powers started hostilities with the chinese embargoes would be placed on said hostile nation. In this case it was japan. Japan knew it but went ahead and staged a fake incident on marco polo bridge. And as they say, the rest is history.

Clearly japan brought this on itself.

And, going by your logic, japan has often placed embargoes on NK, so going by your logic NK should attack japan because that is what you are insinuating.

Japan is absolutely obsessed with these UNESCO world heritage sites.

And the west is obsessed with Guns and drugs. I think I would rather live in a country with people obsessed with UNESCO sites than a country with people obsessed with guns and drugs.

"There needs to be real reckoning with the kind of behavior that we saw from that organization and its willful blindness" to sexual misconduct, Trudeau told a news conference.

"Their behavior over these past years and indeed, over these past months, has been not worthy of an organization that embodies so many hopes and dreams for young Canadians," he said.

I thought I'd never see the day that I would agree with him.

So true though. This kind of mentality and behavior is quite prevalent in canadian hockey.

During a town hall event in July, hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon, President Joe Biden assured the country that if they were vaccinated, they would not contract COVID-19. He said it to motivate people to get vaccinated, but it wasn't true.

“You're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations,” Biden stated bluntly at the time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention informs us people can still get COVID-19 even after being vaccinated.

Biden centered his pandemic strategy on “trusting the science.”

Which makes it a 0.16% death rate.
