I wonder if this feud between us will ever end.

You know it doesn't matter who is at fault. All that matters is WHO IS GOING TO FIX IT ! It seems that every country now a days is playing the blame game. Just stop blaming people and fix it.

Hmmm i adore anime's and manga's. I don't think I have the right to call myself an otaku for I know some die heart otaku's out there but I would love a guy who would share the same interest in me. I don't collect things nor do I buy the books but when I'm not working, playing sports, or at church I usually have a manga up on my phone

I'm not a fan of smoking and i don't like to be around it, but for those who do smoke they have every right to have a place in which they can smoke

It seems that most people have a problem with bush getting into the war. Though he had every right to. they bombed America and if he hadn't the repercussions would have been worse than if he did get involved.

I'm sure the police man did not mean to bring harm to the woman, he just thought it would be easy to restrain her by sitting on her.

Honestly I don't see the problem, there are more horrific ways a man can die. Also if someone was given a week in advance when they are going to die it could cause problems with people trying to break out of prison

He just doesn't seem like the terrorist type. Though i guess you can't judge a book by its cover. I'm glad he was caught though, praise God no one else was injured !

Because I fell in love with the culture. While Im still and American at heart I feel that Japan has also become my home. Though with me having the typical American look i get strange looks.

@ olegek. Russia&China totally dislike US bases in Japan&S Korea .....
So - it's a big game ....
(US bases are not for peace )
I never said U.S. bases are there for good. I never even mentioned U.S bases. I simply stated that we want peace. Please,if you are going to rant on me, stay on the topic i choose. Furthermore Russia and China are not trying to wage war against other countries. Where did you get from my statement anything about U.S. bases

um just a thought. in other articles they often said boy, and it sometimes refereed to a 19 year old man. So why is a 18 year old female a woman not a girl when other males are counted as boys?

No country, besides NK, really wants to start a war because we want peace. It would cost money, lives, and resourcesto start a war, even if all of our forces combine could wipe NK into oblivion. Though if NK did in fact attack a country no one would stand down from the fight.

Quite frankly unless the thief left evidence behind or unless there was a camera around I don't see the police solving this case

I find it sad that people like this have children and that there are some parents out there that would love to have a child of their own blood but are unable to have a heir or legacy.

I'm pretty interested. I find it highly unlikely that this could ever happen, but it looks like a good action film, no matter who was the enemy
