    H. Clinton is totally unqualified, ignorant of major issues and without a doubt the most laughable female candidate since Palin for either party in the USA. I am appalled that anyone might think of considering her for the role of President, she is coarse, crude, and callous, ignored important even critical issues when she was our laughable Secretary of State, she made the USA the laughingstock of the entire world during that role, and now she is trying to drag herself back into the public eye. Her book was laughed off of the shelves and talk shows very fast, and she will fall into obscurity very fast as will the joke of an idiot who is currently in the White House. Both are examples of how the american system can totally fail to filter out incompetence for the highest offices. What a joke.

    This is a rather bombastic and sensationalized article, that does not show much careful and impartial research. It tries to make the position that Japan was somehow BAD for expanding as every other European Power had, and saying that the war was unwinable is a fallacy on face value. No war is unwinable, but someone always loses, often all sides lose in ways they don't realize at the time. If you look at Europe of today and Asia of today, Germany and Japan emerged two of the strongest and most respected world powers and England, France, Italy, and the US are declining day by day in many many ways.

    by the way that German colony in China was called Tsingtau, that was its real and official name, please do NOT allow chinese attempts to change history and re write geography to corrupt accurate history.

    This is hardly a major blitz, it is a release of a minor casual game that has nothing in common with superb Star Wars titles such as the X Wing series, the Jedi Knight Series, Knights of the Old Republic, the actual Games not the junk MMO of that name, and that series mentioned is a poor watered down and Disneyized cheap off shoot of a very very good five season animated series, called the Clone Wars. Disney is showing its total lack of understanding and respect for the very fine Star Wars story line and amazing series of games, stories, books, games and movies by cheapening and glitzing over the Clone Wars format. Previews of it show Disney inserting slangy and cheap "popular" jargon and diction to make the series into another watered down homogonized consumer product. What we fears would happen when Disney pirated the Star Wars francise is happening. None of this news is newsworthy or respected by those of us who have worked with and greatly admire and respect the depth and the complexity of the original Star Wars canon.

    I am once again shocked at the disrespect, arrogance and hate shown in this and other threads here to people in Japan who ARE Japanese living their lives as they wish In THEIR OWN country. Westerners are guests in the country and outsiders have no right to criticize, belittle or demean sincere respect for events of the past. You may not understand the reasons that Japan worked to create a expansion just identical to what England, France, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Italy, Portugal, Russia and the USA and China ALL did before them, why is it evil if Japan followed a similar path? This is their right to live as they wish and I hope and pray someday that more ppl here will show proper respect. Those in military service from past wars served their country as they felt right. Just as many do today. Lets be more kind please.

    The Clone wars animated series is VERY very good, it has over 100 episodes of very high quality work. Sadly the new series shows the deadly hand of Disney medicroity I fear and i dont have much hope for it.

    Another example of a pacific nation baiting Japan if Korea wants to claim the islands then agree with japan for arbitaratoin. the continued chest beating of Korea and China is getting boring.

    True strength of a nation and a people comes from inner quality, not externally projected power. China was a very important historic culture and all of the Asian nations and cultures derived great assets from it. They all acknowledge this heritage, and If China would calm down and act as a good neighbor and an equal instead of trying to lord it over everyone things could be much better.

    Sadly China is showing all of the signs of a short sighted bully who wants overt power instead of working on internal quality. Japan has taken the high road off and on for the past 100 years and was working for and still is working for the Asian people at large standing up to the western anglo nations and proving that Asian people can be the equals of any, in all ways. I am proud of Japan but rather tired of China..and hoping it will grow u p eventually.

    the father abandoned his daughter and neglected her and drove her literaly crazy. He is responsible as much as she is. I am sorry to see that the coverage does not notice and point out this important fact. Often such terrible situations are not analyized carefully.

    It is strange how short China's memory is. They seem to forget they twice tried ti Invade Japan with huge fleets of bloodthirsty warriors and ruled over their own people with an iron hand for hundreds if not thousands of years, subjegating most of the Chinese people to a live of endless toil supporting an elite..a situation not unsimilar to Modern China. Now China is trying to drag out history to support its rampant aggressive attempt to take over the entire Pacific by attacking and trying to seize iconic territory..most of the sites they try to seize tho many are resource rich, are largely symbolic and attempts to find a suitable target to bully the home nation, they are doing the same thing with Vietnam, Thailland, the Phillipines, and all of their neighbors not just Japan.

    The case of Japan is one of the silliest for the islands in question are OWNED by Japan and PART of Japan already. The western press and China try to make it an issue of disagreement but the bottom line fact is that the Senkoku islands ARE part of JAPAN. Period. World War II is long over, most of the particpants long passed away. Japan is a very differnt nation today..and a fine and outstanding example of a modern sophisticated nation for all to see who have eyes to see reality.

    Sadly suicide pacts show desperation and sadly unhappy people and can happen to any culture and any people. I am very sorry to hear of this.

    Sadly most of the American inner cities are filled with a violent and dangerous sub culture mostly ethnic in origin. Poor and largely iliterate and unmotivated people sponging off welfare and prone to anger and violence in gang type activities and crime, Chicago is likely to go the same way Detroit went without any serious changes in national and regional leadership that does not use racial favoritism to hide the facts of the degenerate nature of many city residents who have no hope, no self control and are prone to act violently in all sorts of ways. Not a happy picture but the US is not alone as it is happening all over Europe too.

    I hope everyone is careful and village headmen and community leaders take good care of their residents. It is serious, not just a little rain. this one is a big one and may cause a lot of damage. The US forces have moved over 60 large aircraft from the base to other bases.and i can see that the Japanese authorities are issuing good warnings to all. Well done.

    China is showing total disregard for reason and normal international law. They appear to feel that they can do as they wish. At some point, they will face the entire world standing against them. There is no nation on earth that will support such idiotic elitism by an entire government.

    It is so extreme that it is rather insane and would be judged as such if it was the actions of an individual. One of the definitions of insanity is the inability to recognize perceivable reality. I am starting to think that the decades of isolation have made China in some ways insane as a nation. It is sad because there is much to respect about China and its long long history, and much of its culture has been a model for many other cultures....i hope things can get better.

    There is no reason at all for such a criminal to be allowed to live if his guilt is proven by the facts so clearly. no reason at all. I pray for peace for her and her family.

    Kerry is an absolute fool for allowing himself to be used as a front man for the obama circus. As if Snowden who is a hero, could or would get fair treatment in the US, not any chance of that. I am so glad he had the courage to expose the massive abuse of the people of the world's pirvacy. It boggles the mind how they got away with it for so long and how they blame HIM for their own crimes against us all.

    A life should be given for a life. There is no other way to deter such maniacs. they do not care for reason and listen only to the danger of losing their own life. there is no rational plea that can justify not executing him immediately on proof being found he commited the murder..no trial, no legal waste, immediate execution...and reperations from his family to the slain girls..and the daughter.

    China is actually helping the rest of us reveal its own stupidity and arrogance. Their blatant disregard for International Law, and respect for other nations in the Pacific shows that China is frankly still living in the 19th century of territorial Imperialism and has a stern lesson to learn from the rest of the world. They will bring it upon themselves and I am glad that it will happen soon. Vietnam can easily beat them and will I predict. Japan is acting with great restraint, and clearly also understands the weakness and the fallacy of China's absurd claims to "own" the entire South China Sea, a patent farce and an absolute lie. I esp liked this post here< very well said:

    This speaks volumes about China's rather thin regard for what passes as just and right in international law and relations. They won't be satisfied until someone starts shooting. Quite honestly, I'm starting to think that's precisely what they want. They're playing the Bush Sr. gambit, i.e., find a war to fight somewhere to toughen up a relatively fresh and soft U.S. military that hadn't seen major combat since the Viet Nam War. Enter Saddam Hussein.

    China too has an entire generation of untested PLA troops who have never been fired at in anger and are need of a "cause" to toughen them up for the main event, namely going toe-to-toe with other world powers (the U.S.). The problem is, Viet Nam can and will bite back -- and bite hard -- when push comes to shove.

    China suffers from what it has suffered for centuries: A crippling inability to stop itself from dwelling in the past. It's trying to prepare for war of Imperialism that all but concluded a century ago.

    I am glad to see this honourable visit recognized and covered here. it was a worthy event. I esp like some of the positive and intelligent comments here, many more than in the past. the best was:

    Has anybody who is commenting negatively about Yasukuni ever been there? If not, then how can you INTELLIGENTLY comment on it? It is NOT a shrine to war criminals. Rather it is the repose of the souls of all of those who died for Japan throughout all of its wars, including those of non-soldiers (nurses and some postal workers, for example). The souls of the "Class A" war criminals, executed for Crimes Against Humanity, also repose there. They indeed died for Japan regardless of the (justified) condemnation of the court. It has been a familiar drum beat for China and Korea, who neither understand nor care about the true meaning of the place. Something good to use in their political games.
