If the Japanese had been really determined to abide by the truth, they would have concluded the case much earlier. Of course, apology does not have to be an empty exercise.

Many of those brave souls had (or will have) a long road to recovery not only in the physical sense, but also emotionally. I can only hope that the aid that they receive will be enough for those who need it. Now, maybe when we go to bed tonight, we can thank our lucky stars that we have a bed to go to. My heart and my tax dollars (yen) are happily extended to the people affected by the disaster.

China's claim to the Senkaku continental shelf runs counter to international law. In the late 1960's the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East (ECAFE) came up with a report which indicated that there may be huge untapped oil resources under the East China Sea in the vicinity of the Senkakus.

The Japanese government continues its policy of "internationalization" (kokusaika) - urging companies to hire more foreigners. But in Japanese eyes, foreigners always remain gaijin - "outside people." Despite Tokyo's cosmopolitan reputation, diversity in the capital city runs mostly to products, not people. Kokusaika is just a media buzzword; most
ordinary Japanese are still wondering what we're doing here.

The abusing parent doesn't want to injure his child, but often he or she is ill-equipped to cope with a stress situation. The abusing parent, is not fully matured and acts out impulsively in stress situations. There is usually a tremendous guilt felt immediately afterwards, but it tends to repeat itself unless there is some intervention.

In certain cases, juveniles should share in the consequences for their bad choices through prosecution and incarceration within the adult justice system. Protection from crime is a basic, necessary duty of our government and we should support laws that crack down on all offenders, young or old.

If this were a communicable disease we would call it an epidemic and use all of our resources to do something about it. We do have an epidemic and in the past nothing had been done about it. Any behavioral pattern that deviates from normal personality traits in young children should be investigated.

China has become the symbol of evil. So the discussion is always against the background of how much do you let evil people get away with, which is an awful way to try to work out a relationship.
