USA; NATO are the biggest criminals. As long as Americans keep behaving like they do in a foreign country there will never be peace. Prince Harry the invader should go back to where he belongs. Speaking of terrorism what USA does is state terrorism. They are the biggest terrorists.

Yes, you are right. This is what you get for following the stupid NATO. You must be the change you want to see. If the US and others keep invading other countries like this they could as well declare world war 3. The problem isn't going to solve itself. Ever tried to put out a fire with a flametrower? Now that's not going to work, is it?

Samsung F700 had an "Apple Design" and was released 6 months before the Apple Iphone. But I don't like Apple anyway. In this case I'm with Samsung.

Lives cannot be recovered once lost. So talking about 'demons of the past' is pointless. There's a lot of people who need to learn that. You don't even have to pay respect for anything that's happend if you ask me. You should at least know what happend en let it go, move on. You don't need anyone else to do the same or apologize or whatever because you're an independent person and your feelings certainly don't cling to any other persons actions. Only you can make you feel better. The best revenge is forgiveness. I speak from experience here.

Oh, but you would, if Germany enshrined the Nuremberg war criminals at a shrine which also connected to a holocaust-denying museum. Would you not? Do tell us.

If you can read, then you know that's not the case.

Since you forget, I will remind you. Imperial Japan did not suffer the war, she prosecuted it.

You say that's why everyone who has died isn't a victim? sure... Right or wrong, win or lose, if you die, your a victim.

Where Yasukuni is concerned, Japan's imperialism is always the topic. Japan has chosen to make it thus.

Nonsense. It's always westeners that start talking about the matter.

We'd all love to. Just as soon as Japan does, then we can too.

What in gods name are they doing wrong with paying respect to the victims?! As gokai_wo_maneku said; "All nations have the right and duty to pay respects to soldiers who died for their country. This is an equal truth for both the victor nation and the loser nation." Do you guys want Japan to tear down all the graves of those 'war criminals' or something?! Nothing could be more disrespectful than that. Criminals are still human. Or do you want Japan begging for forgiveness while America's the one who dropped two atomic bombs on their heads?! You guys need a reality check..

Posted in: Sea Shepherd claims win after fracas with Japan whalers See in context

Yes an opinion is an opinion and a resolution is a resolution and there have been 30 + resolutions on the matter. And as the world whaling body and Japan as a signatory should abide by its resolutions not just the ones it likes....

That is true, but I was replying only to the opinion part. Anyway, I don't care if whaling is stopped or not. If people want to stop it, go ahead. I only know that violence is NEVER the answer.

Says enough...

So the opinion of the IWC and 30 + resolutions calling for an end to lethal research means nothing then is that what you are saying. You are saying that the Japanese "opinion" is more important than the world body on whaling a body that Japan is a signed member of.... That really does say it all doesnt it?

All I'm saying is that an opinion is NOT a rule. It isn't even a guideline, wether you like it or not..

the IWC has adopted over 30 resolutions on Special Permit whaling in which it has generally expressed its opinion that Special Permit whaling should: be terminated and scientific research limited to non-lethal methods only (2003-2); refrain from involving the killing of cetaceans in sanctuaries (1998-4)

it has generally expressed its opinion

@ johninnaha

I agree. The NATO's job is to protect civillians. They didn't do that. They only chose the side of the rebels and started bombarding the city. The NATO countries need pay for the damage they caused.

I quote: "The resolution, adopted under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter:

demands the immediate establishment of a ceasefire and a complete end to violence and all attacks against, and abuses of, civilians; [..] authorises all necessary means to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas, except for a "foreign occupation force"; [..]"

North Atlantic Terrorist Organization would be a better name.
