Dreamworks has a cool name but their productions are stale, shallow and without merit. It is a sad thing to see such resources wasted on silly stories filled with the most banal and basic attempts at humor. Their productions are slick and smooth to watch but frankly there is nothing of value in them and I fear in time it will be clear that their efforts were a dead end in animation. Hopefully others will be able to do better stories with similar approach.

the united states needs to stop telling other countries what to do with their own problems. We have enough at home and what Syria does with its own people is their business and none of Kerry's or the USA.

this is an insane idea the yuppie nuts at Google need to be reined in ..before they start killing us with their crazy fantasies. there is no way that a driveless car is either useful or sane. Time to wake up.

I am sorry to hear of these sad events but..
the whole idea of climbing a mountain and taking risks is beyond belief to a sane person. It means nothing to get to the top ..other than you dont appreciate life enough to risk it. they should all have stayed down there it is safe there is plenty to do. i have no respect at all for those who think risking is fun. It is very immature.

This is wonderful news finally we can get on with a real fight to get rid of the Clintons once and for all. Trump will make a wonderful president and can help us recover from eight years of insanity and run away liberal propaganda. Cruz was never a serious possilblity but he was backed by the power brokers of the Republican elite because they knew they could not control or dominate Trump. Trump will be a fine leader.

this is totally stupid and yet another sign of the insanity of the current US government led by the liberal cabal....just becasue the US overpays its workers, and sends its own industry and businesses overseas and then puts the entire economy in the red because of excessive wellfare payments to people who refuse to work..they think they can blame other countreis that DO work hard and earn it like Japan.
it is really nuts.
I am sorry, Japan, I appologize for our country which is pretty mislead right now.

This is a totaly stupid and insane idea and a fine example of how remote fro reality and unable to see how crazy they are of the rich yuppies that have become major problems for the modern world. No one in their right mind would want to share the road with robot driven cars. no sane person. I think we will have to ban this idea fast.

I am sick and tired of the liberal elite double talk calling illegal invaders "asylum seekers" they are illegal immigrants seeking free benefits that they wont work for at home.
Just send everyone of them back to where they came from and let them work for their own future. It is time for rational and realistic responses, not faded liberal fantasies that everyone deserves a free ride. Earn it. Glad at least Australia is putting its foot down and the rest of the developed world better do the same before we are all invaded past the point of no return.

this article is sick example of sensationalizing someone's distress and pain,. We seem to live in an increasingly heartless and unkind age. Whoever wrote this article and is trying to extend this poor mans pain is really not very nice. It is true he committed grevious errors and should be punished but to revel in his pain is really a sad example of journalism gone very wrong.

It is time for people to realize you cannot legislate peace. you have to defend it and you cannot do that with laws set on your own people, trying to force your own country to be weak. That just does not work as history shows very well. China will just keep pushing and pushing. Japan must defend itself and be prepared to do so, or there will not be any peace at all. Read history and look at the facts.

It is a matter of culture..they are far more significant for Japan than Hollywoods shallow and silly work. It is right to honor Japanese literature and art that Anime and manga are above the shallow work of other cultures.

Japan has been a leading designer of the finest planes for many many years and this development is another good step in the independence and strength of Japan as a country and culture. There are many pressures to face in the East today and this is another important part of the defense of both Japan and the stability of the region. Well done.

As one older than many here possibly and one who lost family members in that war on all sides, many of whom were serving in the militaries of both sides it is painful and sad to see the lack of understanding and respect for the loss caused by war. Japan was and is a modern nation with a long history, and like ALL of the major European Countries and all of the major Asian ones has a history of both domestic and international activity in both peace and war. Nations contested for resources, control of areas and progress of all kinds, it is what nations and cultures do. It is how History works. To try to blame one nation among them all is both sad and very short sighted and shows lack of understanding.
The honoring of those who died serving their nation is both decent and respectful. It is the right of anyone who does not understand this to criticize or attack this honoring..but it does not make it valid or kind. To focus on Japan and blame the current people alive now for acts carried out long ago shows other motives than just justice or peace. Anyone who knows the current situation in the East knows that China and others who attack Japan and its people who honor their ancestors are using selective lenses, and not being truly fair. I am glad they honored the War dead, millions died, and many millions more suffered the loss of beloved fathers, sons, brothers, sisters, mothers, parents and children. These were people, humans and members of their time and events. It is hardly kind or fair or aware to distort or make superficial these facts and connections and to deny that some form of rememberance should be given. I am glad it was and is. It shows courage and proper respect. Well done.

No matter what the feelings we may have it is important to keep a positive attitude around this and not engage in needless criticism of anyone. It is a natural tragedy and a human one and people are involved at every level. let's help, and be helpful, make good suggestions and not focus on who doesnt do what could be done and just do what we can. it is good to hear abot people offering and it take organization and drive to focus them to the right help. Publishing needs clearly and publicly is the job and purpose of public officials and others trained for this. I will keep praying for the safety of those missing and for the futures of all who have been affected.

It is an honourable shrine and part of Japan's heritage and history. There is no reason to label it 'controversial" any more than it is right to call Notre Dame in Paris controversial..or any shrine in any country dedicated to faith and spirit of ancestors. I am glad that this traditional ceremony was held in a respectful way.
