Anyone who justifies the dropping of 2 A-bombs on cities filled with civilians, old men, women and children to a military attack on a military naval base is short on intellectual capability.
The Japanese built some pretty fine warships in Nagasaki.
Some pretty famous Japanese Battleships came from Nagasaki.
While in Hiroshima munitions for the war effort were made.
Not trying to justify the Bombings any Bombings, they could have firebombed the 2 cities as they did Tokyo, but probably more people would have died that way, it's estimated that between 80,000 to 100,000 died in Tokyo.

Every year the coal industry releases more radioactive material into the air and water, than all the nuclear power plants and nuclear bombs ever.
I read that also in Scientific American, however some of Scientific Americans articles over the last few years have been a little political as well. So the question is, with such a political weapon as Climate Change seems to have become, do you really trust the source?

Nothing like pointing out a little hypocrisy when others are trying to assume moral high ground.
I totally agree with your assessment, however 2 wrongs do not make a right, and I do believe the levels of any radiation found in fish should be checked periodically, to do otherwise would be a lack of responsibility, which we have seen too much of since the Fukushima disaster. The West cannot control what China does especially, but it can keep their populace informed and safe as much as possible.
The article reminds me of America, every time there is some problem in the states Journalist will say, but wait look at Japan or look over there it's even worse, never discussing what's going on in their own backyard, this article kind of looks similar. (Economy, politics, homelessness.) Wait, look over there, that's called a distraction and it's prevalent everywhere. Your mileage may vary, but as far as I am concerned all governments on Earth have never shown why they should be trusted with almost anything under the Sun. Keep in mind that one of the leading causes of death, especially in the 20th Century was Democide, more than War, however even war can be considered as Democide.

130,000 Bank Accounts effected with the My Card and still TPTB are pushing it while seemingly not at all worried about the My Card's obvious faults.
It seems that Western countries and I include Japan in that as they are in the G7, have been trying in some form or other to imitate China whenever the situation presents itself, and the My card seems to be the future for all personal data in the future, they need it to control the masses just like China. After everything is on the My Card, they then will try for a Social Credit Score and perhaps Carbon Credits if they can push this climate change thing hard enough. Don't think for one minute that this is not a possibility, TPTB got Japanese to all wear Mask and jump through hoops during the Covid crisis, (heck Japan is still pushing this Covid thing) it can and will be tried at the very least. So if you like being controlled, go along with their every desire, and their desire is complete control. Great Democracy in Japan, the Japanese have no say what so ever in the My Card realm, it's just do as your told peon.

Actually government created the problem, and if you let the government get involved they'll probably create a different problem that's far worse than hay fever. A rather famous Milton Friedman quote goes like;

Harry It is a possibility,
A Russian fighter buzzed an American Destroyer and all the electronics went out on the US destroyer, my understanding is that many on the ship got out of the Navy after that incident. So anything is possible, except perhaps little green men attacking the helo. Also, I heard reports of US fighter jets having to return to base with some problems at about the same time. Never discount anything, and don't depend upon the Government to ever tell you the truth. The news on the American Destroyer was all over the news, I don't believe Mayday or NatGeo carried that news.

Welcome to NEW WORLD ORDER....
Indeed welcome to the New World Order, and that's exactly what Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Yasutoshi Nishimura desires, he even said as much. I wonder if the Minister has anything in common with the average Japanese person at all, as I really tend to doubt it. He belongs and has connections to so many nefarious organizations in which the average Person has no connection to what so ever. Oh I know he can speak Japanese so he must have something in common with the common man.

actually it is illegal for Japan to train, practice and prepare with the intention of offensive military action under Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. So what “rule of law”?
From the article itself; "in a bid to promote mutual understanding and defense cooperation between the forces of the two countries." You'll notice the term Defense Cooperation, there is a difference between defense and offense, a huge one.

As long as they continue the PCR type testing this will never end, the PCR was never meant to be used to detect a sickness or find a virus, it was invented only for scientific purposes, you can find almost anything you want with a PCR test. One need only listen to Kary Mullis the noble prize winner who invented the PCR test to understand what's going on, he died just before the Plandemic broke out.

Japan really needs a law requiring the elderly to take tests on reaction and cognitive ability before renewing their licenses. Renewals should be yearly or every 6 months depending on the results of the past tests.
They already require test, there is one for 70 to 75, and another that's tougher after you reach 75, so evidently this old guy passed the test already, because at 80 he had to have taken 2 tough test, or perhaps he was driving without a license. When I reached 70 I took a test, I will admit in the driving test one old 80 year old grandmother scared me to death with her driving skills, which were little to none, it's probably too easy to pass the test.
As one comment said, most of the farmers are old in Japan, maybe if they made the test more difficult those folks could not plant their crops, there should be a special law for the farmers, they had them in Kansas, there you could drive at 14 or 15 if it was farm related. (I know of no farmers in my area under 50, some are in their late 80's.) I agree the test should be a little harder to pass. Most folks I know that feel they can no longer drive, turn in their license or just do not drive, the license itself is a nice ID.

Not wearing a mask,
Yeah and the PCR test probably told him he was sick, plus in the 21st Century if you catch a cold it's Probably Covid-19, after all it's got the same symptoms of 10 other things besides Covid. I wonder how many Jabs he's received, because those individuals seem to be getting sick a lot more than those who didn't get the Jab in the first place. Most of the World's so called leaders seem to also have gotten the Covids. Biden, Trump, Macron, Treadeau, on and on, and they've all got their jabs all 4 or 5, some of these jokers get it more than once.

For Propaganda purposes, case numbers from a highly flawed test are very useful for control, so all useful idiots please get your jab and don't forget to wear your mask. When they get you on your digital money and you find yourself worrying about your Carbon Credits don't forget to wear your mask to cut down on the Carbon. Please stop eating all that meat and fish, save the planet. As for me I'll comply as soon as TPTB get rid of their private jets and Beach Front Property, because then I'll know the sea level is really rising. As long as useful idiots comply TPTB will continue to make you jump through their hoops. So watch TV watch as the cases rise and soon the Carbon in the air will get you, especially if you keep wearing that mask. Or you can turn off the TV, stop listening to the authorities and live your life, be happy, peace.

No confirmation of whether Yamagami is a member of Sanctuary, the pro-Trump splinter group of the Unification Church which gained notoriety after joining the January 2020 attack on the US Capital Building.
Maybe it was a Japanese organization that actually has connections to Abe's opposing party, so if true, the killer had no idea what Abe stood for or against, most people that perform these kinds of acts anywhere in the world are sick and their beliefs are usually wrong. Some say Abe was with the NWO, some say a Nationalist, whatever he truly was, the killer had no idea. The organization was probably Soka Gakkai which has a relationship with the Komeito which is another political party in Japan, Abe was in the LDP party not Komeito, if true, the killer was just another wrong, sick Murderer, even if not true he was one sick, wrong, murderer.
Now, Abe and many world leaders gave a speech at the Unification Church once, but there is no proof of any connection with the Church as the Church is Korean and Abe has always been a Nationalist, heck the guy visited Yasakuni Shrine on occasion, the Koreans hate that, so personally that point sounds like BS. Everytime an event like this happens Conspiracies pile up, making it difficult to find the real truth. However, the killers mom probably was ripped off by the Unification Church as they've ripped off many folks over the years, so the Main Stream Narrative goes.

As long as Japan has no deterence to the Chinese, Russians or anybody for that matter, it will be held hostage to heavy foreign pressures. For example the very second they say they have nuclear offensive capabilties, it is a fact that the pressures for foreign powers will be cut in half. The only nations attacked are nations that have no threat to the invading forces, what so ever and that's a fact that can be seen clearly all over the globe.

you have to be careful these days, depending on the recipient's race, any criticism or disaprovement towards someone in a public space/work place might not end well for you..... just better avoid these kind of problems
You can only be a complete coward for so long until everyone around you catches on to that fact. One things for sure when they do attack you, never apologize or they will make you pay for it until the day you die. I'm not speaking of racial things, I'm speaking of criticism to individuals who deserve it, no matter what they claim to be or actually are, if they deserve the criticism it's got to be said and meant. Otherwise you'll get walked all over until the day that you die.

It's a start.
Not really, governments always ease up a little on the proletariat when they think there maybe some blowback, this will carry on with more and more fear mongering, shut downs, until the economy cannot recover and a so called great reset put into place. This so called Great Reset will not be in the proletariats interest, it never is. Once the State is allowed to have an inch, they will take a mile, and whatever they took away you will never get back. Throw the dog a bone, and they keep all the meat. People should never ever let governments control people, people should control governments, but in today's world you can plainly see who controls who.

You would have been correct about VAERS but then you invent statistics like this and believe that it is a fact. That's when you lost you credibility.
Data from Digital healthcare research, and I believe there are others besides this one. Stop with the credibility crap, most governments and Main Stream Press all over the world has lost credibility on this pandemic, by not allowing any debate what so ever, just mandates and lockdowns from high above. The VAERS data base is almost never even mentioned within the Main Stream, and any organization that so much as tells anything opposite of the Main Stream is quickly decharacterized and attacked. Which actually sounds similar to what you just tried to do to me, and I'm just writing down the facts.

I'm quite surprised that the vaccination rate has stalled out at 77%! I thought for sure it would be higher. I really would like to ask the 23% who didn't get it what is their logic? Have they recieved other vaccines when they were a child? The most recent Covid case in our prefecture the Darwin award winner was of course unvaccinated!
Well MarkX since you asked for some peoples reasons and logic, here's a couple. There is the VAERS data base, which claims there is over 20,000 deaths and many more adverse reactions to this vaccine. There is also the fact that data base only represents about 1% of the deaths and bad reactions. There is a similar data base in Europe. Since Doctors are not required to fill out the forms for this data Base and since Doctors are taught that all Vaccines and Medicines are usually good things, I found it illogical to take a vaccine since I'm reasonably healthy and know exactly Zero people who've come down with any virus over the last 2 years. Now back in 2017 and 2018 we had 2 or 3 people catch the flu who worked for our company, but nothing serious, that was also the time with the highest deaths by flu in Japan. BTW, I am not anti vaccine, although in this case since it's an experiment, I do not wish to be a guinea pig, however anyone wishing to take the vaccine is free to do so or not.

And what do you think health officials do? just get a report and believe it?
Worry about profits and their own image, that's what health officials usually do, you'll find that some are involved in some of these medicines and that's why they push them. Most so called Health officials lately sound more and more like salesmen or politicians. Here in Japan there are Doctors that have been making money by saying a hospital room is occupied while in fact it's empty (they make money, believe it was something like 70,000 yen a room.), and the Journalist do not even investigate it. The reports on most drugs are a copy of whatever the Big Drug companies tell you. So far most of the articles on this drug use words like "it appears" or "maybe" "may" "early stages of testing" . Now if it actually works let's have a Champagne party, but until they know for sure, stay calm. Today people take these medicines by just trusting individuals who say they are effective and safe, without doing any research on their own, one reason we now have an opioid crisis. If taking multiple drugs and vaccines is your thing without doing any investigations on your own, fine, fill up and good luck.
Now the good point on this drug is, they do say they've been working on this for around 12 years now, so that's better than 3 months testing with the Corona Vaccine, it usually takes 5 or 6 years of testing. It should always be remembered the Drug companies until recently follow rules ranging all the way from innovation, immunity, clinical trials, safety, and regulation to manufacturing.

Pretty soon you'll be taking a vaccine for everything under the Sun, if not a vaccine a pill, these virologist never even think of living a clean healthy life style as a preventive measure, popping pills and taking medicine constantly is not a healthy lifestyle. Having said that, if the drug has been completely tested over years, then and only then could it be called possibly safe, keeping an eye on after effects, Independent of the drug maker itself is of paramount importance.
