    Yeah, well, that has just totally creeped me out! It's not so much the fact that the bones were found in a public toilet, but the fact that some creepy individual has been carrying these bones around for who knows how long. That's just creepy!

    Schopenhauer - Punishment of Japan by two atomic bombs not enough?

    Wow! This is the most naive statement I have ever read! The atomic bombs were not punishment! The only way that the Japanese imperial army would stop was by total inhalation. Even after the surrender thousands of troops killed themselves. The American army took great steps to stop the mass suicides. You really should read some history before making such ridiculous statements.

    Oh, and to answer your question: No! The two atomic bombs that killed around 200,000 do not make recompense for the millions killed and enslaved during Japan's imperial rule of Asia during the first half of last century. Furthermore, if you understand the points of these veterans, Japan has been trying to downplay and deny their actions for many years. They have even eliminated certain atrocities from history textbooks in an attempt to conceal the truth from its youth. Yeah, the war finished 70 years ago and most of the veterans have passed away, but the memories still live on and the harder Japan tries to conceal and downplay it the more people are gonna hate Japan for it.

    Abe has to choose his words very carefully. If his comments are taken as aggressive by the Chinese there will be 10 million Chinese troops marching into Kasumigaseki and beating down every door in their path. Abe and his cronies should be using diplomacy to solve the issues with China and not trying to find a bigger bully to back them up.

    I remember this quite well. There was also speculation that it was a mass-murder suicide. The driver's body was obliterated in the crash. Personally, I think 23 is far too young to be driving a train with over a thousand people on it.

    the conservative leader will want fresh assurances that America will show up if needed in any clash with China, conversations with politicians and experts show.

    Paranoid much? If Japan wants to play Asia bully they should do it by themselves and stop relying on the U.S. to support them.

    And, how are they going to acheive this? With nuclear power, of course. Did they not learn anything about nuclear power from the financial and environmental cost of the the Fukushima meltdowns?

    They should stop calling them 'comfort women'. They should call them what they really were, 'kidnapped sex slaves'.

    Officials believe radiation could be coming from a substance buried beneath the soil.

    Oh, and you believe this?

    So, the roof of the building is not regularly patrolled? I think there is a major flaw in their security procedures.

    I'm not saying it caused this tragedy, but everyone should teach their kids to swim. Very sad for the parents.

    The war finished 70 odd years ago, but the victims dont forget as quickly as the aggressors. Yes, Abe and all Japanese political representatives should make a point of apologizing and expressing demise every time they open their little right-winged imperialist mouths!

    Aerial footage showed dozens of police officers swarming over the roof and helipad of the modern, glass-facade building, with the drone covered by a blue tarpaulin

    So, how many japanese police does it take to retrieve a 50cm drone? Dozens, apparently!

    I'm very surprised that it made it up there without detection. It's a nice little wake up call for japanese security forces, isn't it?

    That's really funny! There are so many people telling me to check the ruling and why it passed, but it all goes back to my same reason, MONEY! There is nothing in the ruling referring to an environmental impact study. Nothing about future maintainence. Nothing about the impact on the local community. Nothing about upgraded evacuation orocedures. Nothing about compensation preparedness in the event of another meltdown. Nothing! The only thing it mentions is cheaper fuel costs, which equals MONEY! We have already had a 10% increase in electricity tariffs, none of which is going to compensation for the victims of the last meltdown. It is only to prop up the already failing nuclear power industry. Do you actually believe they will drop tariffs after the plants are back online? Of course they won't! They will increase them further stating the more scrutinized upkeep of the aging reactors is costing them more money. Wake up sheeple! You should have taken the blue pill!

    So, the courts overruled the objection but have given no grounds to support its ruling. There a thousand reasons why they shouldn't be restarted, but only one reason to support the restart. MONEY!!!!!! Japan has reached the point where economics overrules commonsense. Well done!

    So why can't the J-Gov place similar restrictions on these crime syndicates? - Because, (A) They are afraid to and, (B) there are syndicate members within the government and the police force keeping operations open.

    Every few years we see a token arrest of some syndicate affiliated group or person, but it's only to make the public think the cops and government are doing their job. The fact is, they know who the leaders are, where they are and their operations, but do very little about it.

    The ruling on the Sendai plant could show whether last week’s halting of reopening the Takahama plant over safety concerns was an aberration by an anti-nuclear judge or whether the judiciary has become bolder in supporting the rights of citizens over the state.

    Or, maybe, just maybe, the aging and poorly maintained plants are not safe at all and that is why the courts have ruled them not to be put back online. Just maybe!
