I recall the worldwide outrage over the massacre in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut in 1982.

If Japan does not learn from the past (Fukushima), history may repeat itself. After the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986, Polish children up to age 16 were given iodine doses to prevent absorption of radioactive iodine. For good measure, mothers scrubbed their children's heads

Just as you feel the coming of winter with the first snowfall, the fireworks at Sumida tell me that it is summer.

May I add to @OssanAmerica's remarks that after almost 70 years of denial, the Soviet Union officially admitted in November 2010 that Josef Stalin's secret police killed 15,000 Polish officers held prisoner during World War II in what was called the Katyn Forest massacre. For years Moscow officially blamed the Nazis for the massacre.

Before it was always one bully picking on everyone, but today a group gangs up on one child. Also, even though most of the students know what is happening none will do anything to try to stop it. I've posted before but a shift in family structure has removed children from the elderly, the traditional authority figures,and fewer siblings means less interpersonal experience for children. As a result, children today are not as well-disciplined and have trouble communicating.

In 2009, 3.05 million Japanese visited South Korea. In 2012, 3.51 million Japanese visited SK, and last year (2013) only 2.74 million Japanese visited SK, a decrease of 21.9% from the previous year. The fact is less and less Japanese tourists are visiting SK these days.

Cultural differences between the two nations (Germany and Japan) have played a role in the different attitudes they have taken toward their past. In Germany there is a sense of guilt about the war that is rooted in Christian teachings, while in Japan there is more of a sense of shame.

I am referring to food standards in China and not talking about the USDA at all.

Safety food standards are not enforced and the government and businesses are concerned only with economic growth and financial gain. "Shanghai food watchdog" , isn't that contradictory? The companies (importers) should innovate to find alternatives and try to reduce dependence on Chinese food products.

Rape (attempted rape) is a violation of virtue and dignity that often leaves crippling physical injuries and lifetime emotional scars. Rape is better prevented than punished.

"Food safety is one of the top issues for Chinese consumers after a scandal in 2008 where dairy products tainted with the industrial chemical melamine led to the deaths of six infants and made many thousands sick." Didn't they get the message. Unchecked capitalism is a recipe for disaster.
