We have to change our peace constitution and must have a strong military. Only military power can silence them. America is respected because the country has a strong military.

Why was it not criticized until now and suddenly surfaced? I think, disclosure was done by Japanese who were jealous about Oyamada and Kobayashi. By the way, translation "Let's massacre Jewish people" is not right as some pointed out.

Vaccination in Japan is old folks first and younger people later. Many of them have not received the first dose of vaccination yet. Yesterday, I saw on TV many young people waiting in line to receive PCR before they go home to meet their parents. I was surprised these people have not received vaccination yet. I finished vaccination first and second doses. The order of vaccination should be the other way around.

Don't we know that PCR test is not 100% accurate. That may be the reason they are tested everyday.

Posted in: S Korea summons Japan envoy over lewd remark about Moon See in context

He does not deserve a diplomtat. Stupid. Let him return to Japan and kick him out. In the meantime, there are many such dumb diplomats in Foreign Ministry in Japan. After the war, there is no room Japan's foreign ministry to play diplomacy under the peace constitution. As a result, they are all relaxed. We are wasting tax money.

Increases of natural disasters are recently addressed in connection with the climate changes and the reduction of carbon emissions is becoming the world trend. Will natural disasters really get reduced by limiting carbon emissions? What is the evidence of it?

Posted in: IOC's Bach brings attention to Hiroshima — some of it unwanted See in context

I don't think anything wrong Bach visiting Hiroshima. His visit will remind people of the world about the disaster of the atomic bomb. There are always people who do not take things straight.

Posted in: Bach says canceling Tokyo Olympics not an option despite COVID See in context

I understood why Japan could not say they cannot open the Olympics. Bach is a lot smarter than Suga and Japanese officials.

Posted in: Workers express frustration as Tokyo enters 4th COVID-19 emergency See in context

I am coming to know why the government and organizations stick to holding the Olympic stubbornly. It is not because as they say they hold the Olympic to prove human beings overcoming the pandemic. But it is because there are so many stakeholders involved in the event.

I wonder how the figure is compiled. Is it the number those who felt sick and visited doctors and found positive in PCR test? Doctors and hospitals are obligated to report it to the health centers.

What in the world is the significance of holding the Olympic at all? It only helps IOC to get revenue from broadcasters. Japan is a big loser.

He went to get vaccinated four times since it is free. I saw a news showing a lady in the third world country who was crying. She cannot get vaccinated because she does not have money.

If the government wanted to open the Olympic in Tokyo by all means, why did they not begin vaccination earlier and widely? It is still at 15% who are vaccinated two doses. The figure is a lot lower than European countries.
