    Well done Obama san! You have done your country proud, that's coming from someone not an American.

    Would be wonderful if Japan could follow your lead!

    a frustrating month of the gaijinweb being wall-to-wall hand-wringing and nonsense about how Obama was going to shame, humiliate, or ruin the US

    katsu78,

    With all due respect there was next to NONE of what you just posted!! Myself like many other pointed out the timing was wrong, Japan didn't deserve it.......etc but there was NOTHING about shame or ruin or humiliating the US...

    Obama hit one out of the park yesterday, a brilliant speech, nailed it!! abe's by comparison was very lame & inward navel gazing, blind to the world outside Japan, as usual.

    Japan was give a great gift yesterday, & I still think it was undeserved. Japan should have made conditions for a US president to visit decades ago, the US had to FORCE it sadly.

    Now lets see if abe & Japan can man up some! It would be great to witness but highly unlikely, would LOVE to be proven wrong though!!

    Very unlikely for sure that abe would follow Obama 's example.

    Looking at the two speeches, Obama's was clearly a HUGE Grand Slam, abes was pathetically inward looking BLINDERS ON, as usual, if he cant man up yesterday he likely NEVER will!

    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.

    If not the nuclear attack, hundreds of millions of more people might die.

    I am not sure there was even 100 million living in Japan at the time.

    10s of thousands or hundreds of thousands is more like what would have happened depending on how much longer the war was if there were no Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings.

    “I have no feeling of hate,” said Hiroshima survivor Toshiki Fujimori, who blames then-president Harry Truman for ordering the use of the weapons and says he has no ill will for “America as a whole”.

    Sorry Fujimori san but the BLAME lay in Tokyo! With the govt, IJA & the Emperor!! Hopefully you will eventually realize this, but then not likely............

    Why on earth is it so hard for Japanese to analyze WWII & see what Japan DID & admit its history???

    For once I would like to read this stuff with even MINIMAL context wrt WWII...........

    By all means tell your stories, its worth while to let others know, but please remember the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki is very well known, worldwide, common knowledge.

    Yet for 70+ yrs Japan still has great difficulty acknowledging their atrocities, heck the govt wont even apologize to its own people who they DIRECTLY caused great suffering & abuse!!

    And while saying there should be no more nukes Japan has LIVED under the US NUCLEAR UMBRELLA............

    Meanwhile ask Japanese about what Germany did in WWII & its amazing what they know! But about their own country........very little & denials left, right & centre!

    Pushing the Japan as victim mentality is not going to help much I am afraid

    This looks more like a cartoon than a video, not saying she hasn't aged well or anything, its just that this is a cartoon, anime, not video of a person................

    Obama, DO NOT take abe with you to Hiroshima!

    Leave him off to the side somewhere & if you speak wrt to Japan & WWII keep it REAL, Japanese NEED to hear it!

    China can go get STUFFED on this issue!!

    There was absolutely NO REASON for the BS they are trying to pull by trying to take over the entire SE Asian ocean!! Things were going fine pretty much for ALL concerned until CHINA came up with this idiotic idea that may well force a real showdown if China keeps up the non-sense!

    The world has created a MONSTER in China, all so big biz & the rich can make more $$, the cost in the end could well be massive & include many deaths if this crap keeps up!!

    China is looking totally psycho & it wont end well if they keep this up!

    BS it is being forced, I have been declining now on a daily basis pretty much. The other day one popped up & like in the article I don't recall seeing don't upgrade option & it said something like set to upgrade in 30min, I think I clicked at X in the upper right hand corner than went back to work......

    30min later up pops a screen Win 10 upgrade in progress could take 90minutes....WTF!!

    I couldn't get it to stop so I had to hold down the power button to shut it down!!! SOBs!!

    I am not sure whether Win 10 is good or not, but over the years & almost ALWAYS have problems when I mess with my laptop so I DONT want too!! Can risk my PC getting messed up I aint a computer geek.

    But yeah imo MS is pretty much trying to FORCE the upgrades, its NOT making me happy!!

    Obama what ever you do DO NOT have abe at your side while in Hiroshima, it will greatly diminish any good your trying to achieve.
