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.

Twitter is a disaster for modern culture and should be shut down and banned. It celbrates gossip and meaningless chatter to no purpose. Lets get back to real life.

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.

Great Education is indeed worthless if you are unhappy and unloved. that president should realize that much of what the so called Academic ideal is about is empty sham. Life is much more important than meaningless data in a head or not. Sadly modern universities are fundamentally to blame for vast amounts of empty liberal ideals that are based on intellectual fantasy, not reality and people become very confused and prone to propaganda for the rest of their lives until they wake up.
That song may indeed be much more correct than some University official whose business is selling her own view point as fact.

There is no such thing as trans gender anything..it is scientificalky impossible. It is a fantasy created by liberal activists who want to make an issue of it for fame and power. I am glad Japanese kids retain some sense, the US seems filled with this junk about this fantasy now and it is a ttotal fraud.

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.

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.

Posted in: Obama's visit to Hiroshima builds further trust and positive feelings toward the U.S. within Japanese public opinion. The hope is that it can nudge Japan to lead similar peaceful visits to Korea, China, and indeed other countries in East Asia in a similar way as President Obama came to Hiroshima.
