It borders on very bad taste to be featuring an article about a battle that cost thousands of Japanese lives military and civilian here. It would be fine for an American venue but hardly appropriate here.

This is meaingless and rather a joke coming from a man who had tried hard to create hatred between racial groups by pushing his agenda to promote his own chosen groups. We don't need lectures from hypocrites like that.

Virtual reality is a joke. please stop pushing it along with other media who just jump on clever ideas without thinking.
We have enough problems today understanding reality wthtout encouraging people to dive eve further into fantasy.
this is like driverless cars an example of yuppie brainless whims claiming to be useful.

they are NOT ;protests but planed mob tactics of bullying and should be outlawed by regulations against any candidate but you notice they are being used by the liberal followers in their attempt to force mob rule on the US...sad stuff to see and really silly but Trump will win and will save the country thank God.

Who cares? elevating a brutal expert in an absurd sport in which you win by hitting your opponent until he falls down and blacks out is silly beyond words. I am sorry he died but frankly dont care at all.

It is much scarier to think that Mrs Clinton who has no real experinece or qualifications other than being married to a former president to be one herself might win. It is terrifying to be honest. Trump can and will save the US from a near decade of liberal excessive spending and wild social propaganda for extreme causes. Thank goodness we have a chance to return to sanity if he wins.

It does not matter at all what race he was. The evil man who did this foul deed needs to pay the penalty for his crime. I am glad that a cry is out for the US to control their forces more. I am glad that we the US are helping protect Japan but we need to teach the service people and the non service eimployees to respect Japansee citizens. period. there is nothing to argue about or discuss on this. thank you JT for the facts of the case.

Sadly it takes two sides to agree on this..otherwise Japan would have been invaded and conquered long ago...and today and now are no different. When China decides to live peacefully with its neighbors and the insane radicals of Arab persuasion lay down their angry bombs then we can all embrace peace and bury our tools of defense. I am no more a supporter of violence than anyone..but sadly bullies love non violence and flourish in it. Liberal dreams and fantasies have brought our world to its knees once again in modern life..and once again will have to learn the tough truth about reality. Freedom is not free. there is a cost. Hopefully it is defense by a sane and intelligent decent culture....not offense.. But Defense IS needed. Thank God Abe and many wise modern Japanese understand this.

May Minagawa-san rest in peace. I only wish he has spent his talent on Japanesse drama instead of trying to promote western themes. farewell.

the entire climate control shame is a fraud based on liberal fantasies about rich and poor and equality propaganda. Life is what you make it yourself thru effort and hard work on the personal level and the national and international level. There is no reason for any nation or any person to feel obligated to others with less or for those with less to expect it. that is a liberal fantasy. Same for environment. Much of the so called "science' of the Gore type earth fears and dreams is another fantasy and will be exposed as such in time..but is well known now by any intelligent and educated person who is free from the propaganda.

Adam's post shows no real understanding of the reality of the times when WWII was started. Japan was following an identical path to all of the major European powers, and to point the finger at them over and over and over is just showing poor or no understanding of history. No one likes the terrible things that happened in history and we are a little better now than ages past but not a lot. It is cultural favortism to blame Japan for having national insterests and pursuing them. China has no clean hands over its past and the things that it did internally and externally. History over time shows that all nations can sponsor bad things. What is sad to see is the ignorance of modern people over the real issues and real costs of that war and its aftermath. not only for Japan but the US which suffers today deep wounds from the affects of trauma on the millions of servicemen and the same in Europe. I hope in time people may take the time to read more of the real events in Japan and some of the fine books and other research written of that era ...a powerful military faction controlled the country in an iron fist...quite similar to the modern condition in the US where the current president and his regieme are trying to control the entire US with his own brand of socialism and use of the government to force his socialist program. No nation is innocent in its past but today Japan is a fine country rediscovering pride in its culture and I support that effort 1000 percent.

the modern atttack on religion and faith as part of life is a sad example of the hypocracy of modern liberal facists. they talk big about freedom but focus on their own version of it and attack others for appreciating and having support for faith and spiritual practices in daily life. there is no call to be quoting nasty comemntaries about any group who has deep commitment to Japanese values like some have posted here. This is a wonderful idea of Prime Minster Abe's and very fitting. Sadly most of the western so called leaders are among the worst offenders against true freedom and have little or no true faith in anything other than their own political and personal agendas including the US president and others. I fear this effort will be sadly little appreciated by the big wigs coming to visit. but it is a nice try.

She is a very brave lady and they should have taken care of it on the visual evidence alone. The american justice system is very broken and stupid. That jerk should be executed or shut away for life. And the system offering him a plea deal is the most sickening thing of all. I am proud of her and hope she is ok.
