The Truth Hurts..especially those who with little intelligence and too much pride.

2012--"An Air Force instructor was sentenced to 20 years in prison Saturday after being convicted of rape and sexual assault"

2012--"A military jury at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio found Staff Sgt. Luis Walker guilty Friday night on all 28 charges he faced, including rape, aggravated sexual contact and multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault."

Korea 2012--"10 years for US soldier in rape case" A South Korean court on Tuesday sentenced a U.S. Army private to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a local teenage girl in one of the heaviest punishments handed to an American serviceman

These are a few that were reported by the victims and the media. But the FACT remains that most victims of sex crimes fail to report the attact.

@ Matthew

obviously you lack the ability to empathize with the rising number of victims that have been created by U.S. service men. Or you simply don't care and are unable to see the issue at hand. My comments are objective and logical. I have no bias because I'm not a serviceman. But i do have relatives who have served in the Navy, and Marines. They would most likely agree. The Curfew is neccessary and it's NOT the first time. I know the TRUTH Hurts. But the U.S. military is an institution with problems that needs to be addressed like any other government run institution.

Soldier Suicides rates have been rising, female officers don't always report crimes, and local populations feel betrayed everytime a case like this happens. you should open your eyes. Soldiers committ Crimes. AND this is not 1st time or the last time. It will happen again. It always happen again. and again. and again. here, there, somewhere else

I'm an American and I SAY EXPAND THE CURFEW.

The quality of U.S. military servicemen have been in decline since the implemenation of "moral waivers" and large numbers of men have been allowed to wear the uniform. Until they better restrict who they allow in the military the U.S. should not let them OUT. curfew 11:00-5:00am PERMANENTLY. EXPAND THE CURFEW. or this will just happen AGAIN with Soilders stationed from outside of Japan. Same as this time.

Posted in: U.S. Navy reviewing rules on Japan bases See in context

The curfew needs to be expanded to other U.S. bases in the greater asian region. Yes these two guys weren't stationed in Okinawa but were actually stationed somewhere else. So EXPAND the Curfew. U.S. Military personnel having been committing crimes in neighboring South Korea as well. Rape, kidnapping,robbery, assualt etc.

The Fact of the matter is that no matter how much talk and lip-service they give about how outstanding the servicemen are EVERY YEAR soldiers are arrested for rape,robbery,etc They can't control them outside of base. They can't always control them on Base for that matter.

It's ABOUT DAMN TIME! This time the "curfew' needs to stay. To all the idiots who don't think this is the RIGHT move are probably U.S. Military themselves and don't want to have any previliages taken from them. But the as a whole they don't deserve the previleage to be OUT at night unless they are undersupervision. Rape by soilders have been on the rise. Already this is the 3rd or 4th rape. There were 2 already in South Korea by U.S. soldiers one guy even broken into an 18yr old girls apt and raped her. He got 10yrs. Decent Americans who work abroad are always the ones who has egg on their face when these blockheads do dumb shiet.

They should implement this curfew everywhere Not just Japan. It will be nice to travel and not have to pick up a local paper and read stupid crap like this every other month.

"According to a recently released FBI report, Gang-related activity in the US military is increasing and poses a threat to law enforcement officials and national security."

"The report, Gang Activity in the U.S. Armed Forces Increasing, dated January 12, states that members of nearly every major street gang have been identified on both domestic and international military installations."

" Members of nearly every major street gang, including the Bloods, Crips, Black Disciples, Gangster Disciples, Hells Angels, Latin Kings, The 18th Street Gang, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), Mexican Mafia, Nortenos, Surenos, Vice Lords, and various white supremacist groups, have been documented on military installations"

Does this sound like mainstream america??? Highly educated, middle-class backgrounds? NO they accept anybody with a pulse who isn't high during training. even those with criminal records have joined the military. as this reports shows.

@Matthew Simon to give you the facts : "The military requires at least 90 percent of enlisted recruits to have high school diplomas.[6] Most enlisted recruits DO NOT have a college degree"

I"m sure your entire family thinks you achieved great things with your life and fulfilled your potential being in the U.S. armed service. But most "upper middle class" families laugh at the notion of their children growing up to join the military. The military is seen as a way out of poverty, un-employment, etc. Generally Parents who have attained higher education have children who also attain higher education and ignore the many army,marine recruiters who troll the neighborhoods, walmarts, churches, community centers, etc looking to fulfill their quotas.lol

Posted in: U.S. ambassador pledges full cooperation over alleged rape on Okinawa See in context

I've said this before and I am saying this again. U.S. Military personale are not tourist or travelers in ANY HOST country. They SHOULD NOT be allowed to travel freely outside of military bases or compounds. When they are allowed to travel without supervision they are more likely to commit crimes. Being able to travel within Japan is previleage and should be EARNED not given to U.S. military personale who without being in the military would more than likely not be there. Given that most military personale are from poor or working-class backgrounds. They are not mainstream americans. Many come from broken homes, low socio-economic backgrounds, or are barely out of highschool.

Look at Iraq. Soldiers are kept in secure isolated areas and don't freely travel among the population Given the hostile enviroment but it shows that its possible to set up green zones and keep them from traveling freely.

Posted in: EU calls for Japan moratorium on executions See in context

The EU has no right to call for anything out of their failing state(s) The EU is fast becoming a world Joke! You can't decide where and who has the right to use capital punishment. Why don't you take a look at the RISING CRIME rate in countries that have already had a moratorium on the death penality. For Example. Japan's neighbor S.korea.

Fact: South Korea now has the third highest Rape rate in the world. Fact: In the past 3years child rape has risen 70%.

No death penality means and weaker laws always give rise to crime. period. There must be a penality for horrible crimes.

Posted in: S Korea: Japan must educate its people about World War II See in context

I just finished talking to a korean school teacher and she said that in school they are not even taught World History in school unless they choose it. She had no idea what the Holocaust is or was! She never learned anything about WWII war history outside of Japan attacked us. She said students can choose geography or society etc and World History is not even a requirement . So WHO needs to educate who? The korean education system needs to improve the quality of its education.

Posted in: S Korea: Japan must educate its people about World War II See in context

Ossan made a great point. I would like to add to that and say that if Koreans look even closer at their history they would see that koreans have worked served in the Japanese military far before WWII. Their history has plenty of well known Korean men who in the past took Japanese names and became "Japanese" military officers. Koreans need to take a look at themselves. This will help them understand why they were and have been victims throughout their history. They have been invaded countless times by many different players. French,Russians,Chinese, Mongolians,Japanese, so on. They themselves have committed some of the same war crimes of beatings, rape,murder, in the past when they were in WWII and even after WWII i.e. Vietnam War. Korean units were notorious for being brutal and raping children/women in villages during that war. People are victims of Koreans too. Educated your own kids before you tell someone else to educate theirs.

GOOD JOB! The top 3 economic powers in the world are the only Nations that seem to get it. 123= US,China,Japan.

Most people are too ignorant to realize that the death penalty is a necessary part of a civilized and functioning society. You take away the right to punish evil acts and the defenseless and the weakest among society will suffer.

Just look at South korea after they stopped using the death penalty:

-The world's third highest rape rate -The number of child rapes here has surged by 70 percent over the past three years.

2012/8 a 23-year-old man abducted a sleeping 7-year-old raped her and left her to die under a bridge.

New York is fast becoming the poster child of what a society would become once it is in complete social decline. Given the fact that New York has 3x the HIV/Aids contraction rate than the rest of the country this "Plan" isn't well thought out. Giving young school girls magic pills that will allow them to have unprotected sex without pregnancy only allows their aids rate to grow period.

And crediting Chung-hee with the economic rise of Korea is over-rated. Even without Chung-hee the major conglomerates Samsung, Hyundai,etc were already growing quater over quater. He simply did a few things like nationalize the banks but what he did was not anything spectacular. It was really a no-brainer. This guy was not some economic genius. I would imagine most of korea's economic gains would have been realized during that period anyway. But the democratic and social losses were staggering. Korea is still suffering from alot of it. i.e. maintaing the highest suicide rate in the world.

Posted in: S Korean dictator's daughter apologizes for abuses See in context

It's obvious people don't understand Kpolitics at all here in this forum. This women is the daughter of a dictator. She grew up as a general's daughter and then as a dictators daughter for 18yrs. This women has know real clue about the needs or concerns of masses. Even Her MOTHER was assissinated. She is a true politician 6terms and will do and say anything to gain power PERIOD. She cares only for that purpose with whatever secret agenda she has had for the past few decades.

Frankly Korea needs a real leader who don't just give lip service when they want something. She has claimed to do things if elected without any clear proposal for new policies on improving old ones. Honestly she thought the world of her Dictator Father and saw nothing wrong with torture, abuse, and executed people who simply wanted a constitutional government. I wonder if Hitler had a daughter how would she apologize before wanting to rule the nation.hmmm...

((( "Who told you to get off the shelf poindexter! : A theory about the marriage strike

The marriage strike, that's what it's been dubbed. Why is it that most men don't want to get married anymore? Well here's a theory.

Women have the right to sleep with anyone they want, and how often they want.

A lot of them have went for the bad boys and "alpha males", putting marriage, long term relationships on the back burner.

With that said, they also put poindexters on the shelf for a later date. They have their flings and one nighters with all the hot guys, "alpha's", rich guys, and whoever else tickles their fancy and life seems good. But after a while these men get tired of these women (and they will) and eventually replace them with younger, hotter chicks. That or their looks fall apart, and they get replaced or don't get the attention the way they used to.

That's when they run back to the shelf to get poindexter down and run to the altar, only to find, he got down off the shelf like something out of Toy Story and walked off, started living his own life, going his own way, even he is saying no thank you to marriage.

So not only are the bad boys refusing to marry you or ignoring you, so is poindexter!"))))

THIS SUMS UP WHY DRIED FISH WOMEN ARE REALLY "DRIED" Women have themselves to blame.

NO wtfjapan This only shows you why Korean salary workers/contract workers are in terms of OECD standards at the bottom of the list when it comes to Over-time Hours work vs Hours Paid. Samsung treats its employess like Surfs/Pesants. Korean workers are stepped on and over to make profit. This is one reason why Koreans have problems with Stress/Alcoholism/Suicide etc. And they carry huge amount of household debt. Samsung should take better care of their workers. First rate company but sweatshop labor.

Wow look at how easily the sleazy women jump up to defend their own. 22yr old tramp who is apologizing to her Boyfriend first whom "she loves" and"respects the most" and then to everyone else. How about apologizing the the wife and kids of the married man you slept with. He didn't rape you or drug you. Last time I checked 22 was adult age. And being an Adult you should try to "respect" the institution of marriage. Is the director guilty as well YES. But it took two to tango. And most people should respect marriage and family. Horny 22yr old with NO CLASS don't comprehend this.

No matter how people try to rationalize it GUNS are just as much as a problem as the nuts who use them. Yes this guy was a wacko who wanted to kill as many people as possible and the easy access to guns gave him that. Could he have been more creative and used some other means to kill people that is a possiblity BUT an automatic weapon is the quickest and easiest means possible to kill people without accidentally killing yourself in the process. The police in any situation would respond in a matter or minutes and nothing aside from a gun can give u instant results. Gun Laws have to be addressed in the US.

Thank you netninja for all of your qoutes. You are one of the few decent men living in indecent times. There seems not that many of us in the world today indeed. Its sad that this generation is being allowed to self-destruct completely. This is not just a japan problem. If you think its bad only in japan you should take a trip to south korea. Women/girls today simply don't dress respectably PERIOD.

And it does start in school. I can't even teach a class with out being flashed by some random 16/17yr old. Your not looking for it but its there. It starts in school and then college. Women condition themselves to dress in this manner. They have so for so long that TO THEM THIS IS NORMAL. Many will never understand now. They have passed that point so long ago that it seems useless to discuss this topic with them at all. Laws must be created to address it. Or be prepared to witness an even greater social breakdown that was has occured in the pass 10yrs. I.e. lower marriage rates, higher divorce rates, abortion rates, sexual assualts, rape, abduction etc etc etc.

weak-minded, impressionable children have now begun to post here... sigh. K-pop is Unoriginal. It is simply an attempt to capitalize on the back of U.S. pop industry and Japan's past pop music glory days. The only difference is that Korean groups have been selling overly sexualized images of teen/young adult girl groups and calling it "pop music"

These music execs have created an enviroment where glamour, high heels, and make-up cancels the need to be a real vocalist, lyrical genius, and artist. The shelf life of most of these groups are only 3-5yrs max. No staying power because they are not selling music they are selling an image! yes the truth hurts. but i would say these is only K-pop. There are other forms of k-music that is actually good.

Duplicate, replicate, imitate and call it talent? K-pop groups for years copied U.S./Japanese acts. Big Bang was even in trouble a few years back for copying lyrics. These groups have now begun to walk on their own but the product they produce is still unoriginal, and weak. They pander to masses of weak-minding, easily impressionable children. Even in Korea this is being seen as a growing problem.

Posted in: No. of suicides surpasses 30,000 for 14th year in a row in 2011 See in context

@ka_chan Well Korea is actually number 1 not number 2 if you take into account the size of population divided by the number of deaths, Korea has the highest rate of suicide in the world which has climbed steadily over the past decade while japan has remain steady with slight declines annually. Which would lead me to think internationally other nations are seeing rising numbers. If japan has fallen to 6th.

In Korea, the main reason to address is violence/abuse against women in all forms i.e ,physical, mental,sexual etc. which leads to serve depression, or other forms mental disorders. The government seems indifferent to wide spread abuse that is present in such a society where such large numbers of women commit suicide daily.

In japan suicide seems to be tied more to economic reasons.
