Though debate still rages over whether Hirohito was a willing accomplice to Japanese military imperialism or its victim, the first decade of the Showa period saw Japan edging inevitably toward global war. Throughout the 1930s, the growing Japanese war machine was testing its muscle and resolve under battlefield conditions in China. From all indications, Hirohito was powerless to control it.

If you're that stressed out don't take it out on your kids, there's always a way out. Potential suicide victims can mask their depression and that's why sometimes suicide comes as such a shock and surprise to people who knew the victim.

The history that Japan is putting out is not like changing something that concerns their country only. This is history between nations we are discussing. Japan must not denigrate the constitution's spirit. Japan has a "forged" history. They shouldn't lie to their children about history. We have no idea what will happen in the future, but they must tell the truth about the past. The truth should be told - that's the correct way to do it. It should be obvious to anyone that Japan's invasions of China and Korea were just that. Why should they be allowed to tone it down?

Before World War ll, all Japanese warships were named in Kanji. But after the war all Japanese warships were named in Hiragana. (出雲 before the war and いずも after the war.) How about some pictures JT?

This is absolutely heartbreaking. We need to give love and respect to animals! Every life should be able to live in peace and happiness. There are a lot of sick and disturbed people out there and it only seems to be getting worse.

Liberty has to be a bastion of Christian conservative thought and activism. Oh, and it's located in maybe the most crucial Presidential election swing state, Virginia. That is a messaging jackpot. Whether you support him or not, he's someone that has the courage and the conviction, he'll call the system to account. And that provides those of us that are doing the vetting some moral clarity we don't get an opportunity to have very often. With Ted Cruz in the race, you're going to find out where everybody really stands.
