Absolutely!, Give me a couple of fully charged Sears Diehard 60 amp car batteries, hook them up in series to increase the output voltage, jumper cables hooked up to his privates and a bucket of water to stand in and I will have the terrorist telling us every detail in short order. I say to hell with being politicaly correct as we don't live in a politicaly correct world do we!

Last week, the US Navy shipped my oldest son who is in the reserves from the US to Pusan to set up operations in the event of a conflct so the US military is taking this matter quite seriously. A month ago he was told he was going to Seoul but they changed that order last week and he was told that if North Korea goes to war and crosses the border, Seoul will be overrun and laid to waste and Pusan is a better staging point for the US to wage war with the NK's. I hope this is only saber rattling and Kim Jong Un trying to show he is as bad as his dad and granddad.

If prostitution was legalzed, this industry would implode because ugly dorks could buy the real thing instead of doing you know what when they watch her films. She probably has a catchers mitt that is not so nice from making that many films in just 15 years.

Wow that is some front page photograph, what will Japanese media do next to boost readership? How many takes were needed to get the right shot? I bet that boy will be damaged for life and probably need therapy ending up working at some japanese dairy in Hokkaido milking Holsteins.

The problem here is not too few fish, it's too many humans eating up all the world's natural resources. This planet cannot support 7 billion people eating up natural resources, throwing away good food, countries not joining together to share and distribute resources. Now is the time for this world's people to join together as one country and govern itself as one group instead of thousands of different entities or else we will face extinction in a thousand years or less

Sorry for the old guy. Were there any surveillance cameras in that area that could lead the police to the robber? The police should watch the spending habits of his friends and neighbors for a while and see what pops up.

As an American, I am totally ashamed of my country and the morons who inhabit it. Guns, guns and more guns is not the answer. The idea from the NRA to arm every tom dick and harry to prevent more tragedies comes from mentally unbalanced gun nuts. It is better to pass laws that would allow the ATF (alcohol tobacco and firearms) branch of the us government the right to shut down importation, manufacture and sales of any type of weapon and ammunition that should be used only by the military in a war scenario. Next pass federal laws and go to every person who legally purchased an assault weapons, confiscate them, destroy them and offer only compensation of the actual purchase price if they can produce a receipt. Any weapon that is stolen and used in a crime then recovered should be traced back to the buyer of record and they should be liable to a great degree for any crime where that weapon was used. After passing a total ban on assault weapons, anyone found to be in possession of an assault weapon gets a mandatory long prison term with no appeal allowed.

Very sad day. My J-wife and I have been following the news and shed many a tear thinking about those poor families who lost their precious loved ones. We do not understand why the authories did not remove the bodies of those killed to allow the families to identify them and know for certain that they had been killed and begin their greiving. We were also quite shocked when we watched Piers Morgan on CNN try to make a young girl who survived and was being interviewed by a CNN on site reporter with her mother talk about her ordeal, what is wrong with the media, don't they have any respect for people or is it all about ratings?

To get the attention of Japan and it's people over the issue of hunting and slaughtering dolphins, I suggest that all of us start a "do not buy anything made in Japan month" and see what happens rather than merely talk about it. When you hit people in their wallet they usually take notice more than listening to a bunch of greenpeace protesters with bullhorns.

All the people commenting here are talking about everything except why was she carrying a "powerful liquid detergent"??? Was she taking to another restaurant owned by the same owner as the one she already worked at or did she steal it to use privately at home or at another job. Was there a terrorist/wacko at her company that wanted to cause an explosion on the train line??

The Stones had their heyday in the 60's and 70's and have been has beens ever since. Those old farts need to realize that it was at least twenty years ago when they should have hung up their act and gone on to another gig. Ego, ego and more ego fueled by drugs and alcohol.

Regardless of the stupidity of the chinese anti-japanese sentiment surrounding these islands, is it not stupid for Japanese to go out on the town in China and risk attack instead of buying groceries and liquor and having a party at someone's home or apartment???

I think that they should start looking at the bottom of the grand canyon since he probably walked over the edge. This happens many times per year there as there are no guard railings and the edges are made of crumbly soil and rocks.
