Prime Minister Shinzo Abe needs to resign...again. He is making the Prime Ministers office into a giant international joke. In saying that, South Korea needs to stop complaining about every harmless thing that happens in Japan. WWII is over now, you don't need to be so paranoid about the most peaceful developed nation in the WORLD!

I am tired of people clinging to the past. That is the extended past. This is the present. Worry about the here and now and future not the past. Nobody in the WWII government is in government anymore. Quit it!

Boy, AKB 48 fans are the most judgmental little bullies I've ever seen.

I feel much safer in Japan. Even in Okinawa, I feel safer than I would in the safest major city in America.
Posted in: Do you feel safer walking along a dark or deserted street at night in a city in your country or in Japan?
Akemi MokotoMar. 25, 2013 - 05:52AM JST
Yes. If you don't support it, don't take part in it but don't discriminate against someone and not allow them to take part in the same thing as straight couples. Case closed!

It is only the best if the voters do it right. It works well in Switzerland but is failing miserably in America. It all comes down to the country. It works in some and not so much in others.

I am all for Japan making an independent Constitution but PLEASE don't drag silly nationalism into this. It never works out in the end and is often the death of a country or a countries era.

That is one hell of a conspiracy theory but utter nonsense and a complete lie.

That sign is incredibly silly. One of the reasons is because New Zealand, not the US, is the father of this bill. Another reason is because that is a stupid scare tactic based of no evidence at all. I am not a fan of nationalism, seeing as history proves to us that is leads to nothing but bad news.

I like the Japanese government, but I am with the WHO on this one. I am pretty sure it is Japan that is underestimating the threat just to avoid public outrage.

I really think Japan should stop turning a blind eye to the people of Okinawa and comply with their reasonable request.

The UN has to do something about this before all hell breaks loose. China is being a childish bully and Japan is trying its hardest not to rain fiery hell down upon them. Kudos to Japan.

It was stupid to say the least. Doing all that because she wants to have a love life. How disgusting.

I really hope Prime Minister Abe does do what he plans to do. I hope he won't do any harm to Article 21 though. I'd like to see Japan's SDF become a full military. With all this aggression from China and North Korea, it may be needed. Japan has a powerful "military" and one expert made it clear that Japan would likely win if they went to war with China with or without US aid. Not that I want such a thing but Japan needs to defend itself.

This isn't pedophilia people. Note that the girls arrested were at least 16 years old. Not even close to the actual definition of the word "Pedophile".
