    Japan should help smuggle small usb flash drives with movies, variety shows and documentary modern-affluence life of USA, Switzerland, EU and SK, and perhaps including HK, and Shanghai.

    stop or block the shipments of high-end/high-class French/California wine and cigars to the regime.

    When Kim Jung-Un and his party mates drink poor-man's Chinese wine laced with fake ingredients and fake Chinese cigar, that's the time NK regime will ask for a serious talk again.

    At least 100 Billion Yen yearly legal remittances from NK residents in Japan should be banned too. Japan should target also illegal money remittances thru Chinese contacts and at least stop sending bicycle, electronic parts from Akihabara including second-hand notebook-PC and gyroscopes which end up in NK rockets and submarines.

    Also stop the package sent to NK from used-clothing and used Skii-wears and gears from Japan. Never allow the Mangyongbong-92 ship to ever dock in Niigata port.

    Tne Rules of the Road in Japan states that, unless you are in JIDOUSHA-DO (car-exclussive road) or Kousoukou-Douro (Expressway or Freeway), the KING/QUEEN OF THE ROAD is the PEDESTRIAN or PEOPLE, whether they are mentally-challenged, children, centenarians, Cell-phone Zombies, day-dreaming or schizophrenic etc . DRIVERS are just slaves or commoners.

    In Japan's RULES OF THE ROAD, turning left or right REQUIRES JOKOU 「徐行運転」DEFENSIVE-DRIVING at all times. JOKOU DRIVNG MEANS: up to 20 or 25km/hour so that when you hit the break, whether your car isvery old model (with no ABS) or relatively-new, will come to SUDDEN HALT.

    It is written in the RULES of the ROAD that before turning left or right, you must look for pedestrian or bicycle specially when it is blingking for someone might be catching-up for the change of traffic light.

    EVEN IF THERE IS NO TRAFFIC LIGHT, JOKOU-UNTEN is a MUST FOR ALL DRIVERS and before turning must look 270 degrees (specially for the possible pedestrian).

    ASSUMPTION 「Maybe there is no one crossing / だれも横断していないだろう Known as DAROU-UNTEN だろう運転」is a crime in Japan and is part of the RECKLESS DRIVING OFFENSE.

    Instead of DAROU-DRIVING, it should be "KAMOSHIRENAI" DRIVING.  横断する人がいるかもしれない。(Maybe there somebody who is about to cross the street)=== IS THE RULES OF THE ROAD IN JAPAN.

    All of Japan nuclear reactors should be restarted. Nuclear Energy is vital to support the economy of the future, each of the top 10 world economies should have at least 50,000 Megawatts of Nuclear Power to reduce greenhouse gases.

    Between this year to the year 2030, there will be about 50 nuclear reactors to be built elsewhere in the world (except Japan). About 40% of these new nuclear reactors will be in CHina.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping's government is poised to greatly expand the country's nuclear power generation, with plans to build six to eight new reactors a year over the next five years.

    Under its 13th five-year national development plan, which starts in 2016, China will invest 500 billion yuan ($78.7 billion) to introduce domestically developed reactors. The new five-year plan is to be formally adopted at next spring's annual session of the National People's Congress, China's parliament.

    Were all the victims armed with knives too? or were they ambushed when they were about to go back to their apartment building. If this is the case, this is a premeditated MURDER case where the culprits planned and well-armed already before the encounter with the victims.

    too bad, there's a lot of Chinese, Indian and South Korean students there including masteral, doctorate and post-doctorate degree courses. Not only to these two above-mentioned universities but almost all higher-learning institutions in the USA from the four corners of the continent even up to upstate NY, University of ALbany and University of Rochester etc. TOYOTA is making research for the Chinese and Korean car makers at the same time.

    Japanese students in the USA is only about 1/10 or 1/20th of Mainland Chinese students. Yes, I am referring to Strudents of Technology and Advanced-Science courses, not English conversation courses.

    With the weaponry and war materiel displayed during the 70th Victory parade last week, we can say that China is no longer afraid of Japan. So China will keep on doing this until Japan give up its claim.

    Last week when Obama was in Alaska, 5 Chinese ships also entered within the 12-mile territory of one of Alaska island chain in the Bering sea.

    The revolutionary new iPhone might have 1GB RAM and 8MPixel Camera.... the most-advanced hardware 4 years ago. Perhaps a dual-core, triple-core CPU, again the most-advanced hardware 4 years ago.

    I went to Ginza last Sunday, and from cheap bargain luggage store (all luggage and shoulder bags are sold for 5,000yen), to high-value and brand stores like Coach, Chanel, Prada etc, 80 to 90% of customers were CHINESE. Sometimes, a batch of more than 20 Chinese tourists flocked at certain stores then they went to the 5,000-Yen Luggage store and put all the goods they purchased on those luggage.

    Nuclear power capacity worldwide is increasing steadily, with over 60 reactors under construction in 15 countries. By the time Tokyo Olympics started, more than half of these 60 under constructions will start giving energy to the people of the wolrd.

    Many are biased again with Japanese Government decision as if they live here in Japan. For you to know, this is the best move by the Japanese Government. There is the human error factor but Japanese safety standard is the safest practice, or one of the safest in the world. Those nuclear reactors facing the Pacific, due to its multiple tectonic plates should be postponed for the time being until the back-up power-supply are put on higher grounds. The rests of nuclea power plants must be restarted as soon as possible. The 7-nuclear reactors in NIIGATA, even though near the sea can be re-started too. I lived near this plant a decade ago when two powerful earthquake, THE CHUETSU and the Chuetsu-OKI earthquake happened with intensity-of-grounbd-shaking or SHINDO SCALE of 6+ (2nd highest ground shaking acceleration).

    Also, we are paying for the SOlar or Renewable energy. Consumers are paying for every KWHr energy given by small-to-mega solar power producers in Japan, as mandated by the FIT LAW. When the SOlar plants are giving to the grid from 10 AM to 3PM, the COAL/LNG Power Plants are still running because it takes a long time for them to shut down and restart again, even though at DAYTIME HIGH, the SOLAR ENERGY GIVEN to the grid sometimes OVERSHOOTS the total energy required. And WE RE PAYING ALL THOSE idle energy produced by coal and LNG. They are all written in items in my MONTHLY ELECTRICITY BILLS. Unless, otherwise, enough STORAGE for SOLAR energy like NAS Battery and Powerful (new-Gen) Lithium Battery are not mass-produce, NUCLEAR PP should be opertating up to 10 years from now.

    Except for Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant in Shizuoka facing the Pacific (Nankai Draft), I am one of those happy supporters that at least 16 nuclear reactors will be put back to operation. 16 x 2,000 MW per reactor, that's a lot of fossil fuels to be saved. Japan economy will be greater. Each nuclear power plant (with 4 reactor per power plant) employs direct workers numbering to several thousands.

    I want all nuclear reactors until NAS Battery or Large Lithium Battery storage technology (just like the one used in Japanese Submarines) are widely applied to all SOLAR Power Plants. This may take 5 to 10 years from now to mass produce NAS Battery and/or Large Lithium Battery Storage.

    @ASAKAZE:

    When the Soviets declared war, who was afraid or concerned about it.

    The USA wanted to end the war before the Soviets joined the invasion is TRUE (or more accurately half-true. The other half was from the Japanese side itself). But as SFJP330 said, JAPAN itself wanted to surrender as soon as possible before the SOVIET started to join Japan's invasion. Atomic bombing could had been the right timing. (When the Soviets made decisive victory in Machuria on August 8, both the USA and Japan were (separetely) concerned of the effectiveness of the Soviet Army. It was, in fact, the declaration of war by the Soviets and the invasion of Manchuria along with the bombings of Hiroshima and then Nagasaki that finally forced the Japanese to surrender. Had the Soviets been given the opportunity to invade from the north (from HOKKAIDO), it was no secret that the atrocities committed by the Soviets would be catastrophic to say the least (given past behavior in Eastern Europe, Germany notwithstanding). Japan was so afraid of the atrocities and evil deeds of the Soviet Red Army. They were more afraid of the Soviets on Japanese (women's belly or in-between legs) than American bombers overhead. Whether the Soviets can land tanks and heavy equipment on Japanese shore in August/Sept/Oct or in 1946 or 1947 was out of question. Japan would surrender before the Soviet start to land in Hokkaido. The USA would continue bombing Japan Cities so as to fast forward Japan surrender. Although by August 1945, the USA had only 3 atomic bombs, for sure before the year 1945 end, 5 or more can still be manufactured. And since they were very expensive to make, the USA will use them all at that time until Japan surrender before the Soviets join the invasion.

    This is really good. The more nuclear reactor starting to operate, the better for Japan's economy. One nuclear reactor is about 2,000 MW of Power. Imagine the IMPORTATION MONEY spend by Japanese Government for natural gas and coal Power Plants currently being operated since 2011/March.

    With the nuclear power plants in japan start to operate, the prices of oil and LNG and coal will be pushed further lower. This is good to all developing countries and poor citizens of the world.

    I just wonder whether Erica has all the microprocessors, circuitry, voice-pickup sensors, batteries etc inside here bodies. or maybe there is a wire and communications link into a remote server with powerful CPU (more powerful than Octacore CPU) that processes all the information. If all the circuitry and CPU (including information processing) are inside its body, then we are close to Android revolution era.

    Morally justifable?

    I agree with SFJP330, air raids and bomb run using hundreds of thousands of conventional 500-lb, 1000-lb/2000-lb bombs and incendiary bombs, killing hundred thousands (some even more than the Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined) is morally the same as 1 atomic bomb killing same number of people. If the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are to be subjected to war-crime case, ... morally and justifiably ... , the Fire-bombing of Tokyo, Dresden and other cities should also be subjected to war-crime case.

    Support the Tokyo Olympics preparation effort of the government. Fireworks can be done in other places in a matter of 1 year planning. Since they are using barges, they can do it offshore near the shorelines Yokohama, Tokyo Disneyland (in between KASAI Rinkai-Koen) or Chiba. There also the Edogawa, Arakawa, Tamagawa and other fireworks festivals in Tokyo.
