...wish the very worst for TEPCO and their families: a good mob should string these guys, in a moment of surprise, and walk them off the ledge at Mori Arts Building in Roppongi. It would be a perfect dream if former mayor Shintaro was swept up and the rest of the losers that bleed the country dry in the most anonymous way.
Unfortunately, those of us who grew up in Japanese society don't respond to anything* and are pretty much lifeless and useless. Even if an earthquake or tsunami happened--wait, it did*!!!...we're already on the verge of apocalypse and these TEPCO fellas are still walking free. Can't some pyschos just dismember them like they do in many fantasy scenario. Japanese film?!?!

...these are the same mob whose cities can't breathe proper air, has thousands of social problems that make the parties involved downright....civilized. Corrupting themselves in the very worst way and a ticking time bomb for Chinese society--they'll be back to 'work camps' and urinating/defecating on themselves soon enough in their own pigsty.

...it's also strategic--whereas cyber terrorism is a vicious circle emanating from China--there's a certain decorum in business that has to be observed, in fair competition and sovereignty. While some rummage through the bins of sweatshops and rampant illegal pirating (stealing patents, litigious hypocrisy, etc.) domestically, Japan still holds a clear upper-hand in infrastructure, efficiency and maximizing good commerce. Even with potential earthquakes, you never worry in the back of your mind that there's going to be all-out chaos and mass killings if things go tits-up.

...this comes from a bunch of Moonies, who are virtually colonized by Christian missionaries and are a weird bunch...most importantly, the Choco Pies they make for their own countrymen are worse than divine punishment. And that home button they're forced to press on Samsung devices--that's a broken limb or two. Koreans will eat their words when they get their own tsunami/earthquake combo, albeit at a cheaper, lower-cost and quality of course compared to Japan's. And uh, Gangnam Style's not going to galvanize rebuilding efforts...

...another example that East Asian relations are at an all-time high...all of us under 60 could care less about throwing rocks at storefronts--funnily enough, forced sex and comfort women have been reincarnated in the form of Japanese AV Stars reigniting (any) interest in scripture and penmanship. A true missionary...see where I went there*?...

...this is distinctly a problem for the oldest-blood generation who are still constantly nagging about this--nobody born after 1980 knows or cares too much about this. Really. Nobody. Gives. Two...you can fill in the rest. Something that's undermines all this political posturing is that we, those who grew up being force-fed this propaganda to hate each other, is realizing how used* and being lied to by our elders has been. About everything.
Everybody should die off and take this beef with them, because it's not interesting.

...the way I look at it, the spitting on the ground...urinating on their own streets...whether you're rich or poor--good manners and decorum doesn't cost anything. The Chinese government can assert their wealth, their rich can come and buy all the luxury goods up worldwide (now) for the moment...but I have a feeling things are going to come down. Gravity is hell of effective. Look at all the natural disasters in Japan. If something like it happened in Taipei or Shanghai, you'd think all those subhumans would line-up, single-file and calmly help each other?!?! (laughs)

Bill Clinton's great relationships in Asia--including Japan, China and even North Korea, endures, and his wife also brings that diplomacy with her. It's hilarious the amount of 'advice' and urgency that's being dispensed here, midweek on an obscure Tokyo message board. For all the predictions, opinions, etc. there's no likely chance any of it will come true. Please focus on the facts and acknowledge some things! A lot of hack journalists and aggressive people here who need to go outside and perhaps not view world affairs as if it was easy as a RPG-style computer game.
Jackson LoAug. 29, 2012 - 10:46PM JST
Yeah, the politicians should just ball, to twenty-one points--winner take all. The Korean writing makes it look ugly, I must say...and cheap. Maybe I'm accustomed to the cleanliness, organization and aesthetic standards of Japan-quality....

In France, Lay's "L'Ancienne" variety is pretty amazing...used to tour with bands and did so all across North America, Europe and Japan. I collected hundreds of varieties of potato chips, potato snacks...supermarkets in each culture says EVERYTHING.

...everybody under age 50 have no beef with each other--it's just a bunch of old blood people we're ALL WAITING for to die. It's their last hurrah. Father Time is undefeated, as well as GOOD FOOD. The fact about authentic Japanese food is true, globally...nobody messes when it's time to eat. The angry people are HUNGRY people, like the ones in Mainland China, North Koreans and so forth. I REALLY WISH more of the old-skool people would just collapse, en masse. The mentality of this political country-club shite is pretty much ignored in daily life, anyways. Only American, British and Australian expats ALWAYS make it about THEMSELVES and have no clue about what really goes on. And real feelings. YES, they have no clue.

They took a 'cause' as Ann excuse to act like louts to suit their lifestyle...binging boating violence, no better than that kid that acts like a cop back in school. You're so morally correct, but Ghandi, MLK never acted this petulant.

Yup, nevermind that you received a check for however number of years...if you were fiscally disciplined as individuals and aren't a complete moron, then you'll do fine. The ones that got by all these years, you have something (nothing) coming to you.

I'm just waiting for people to get on with it. We must remember the past blah blah blah....the younger generation have forgotten it. The oldest generation will be dead, and only expats/nationalists will give two _____'s about it. There's money to be made and goodwill exists beyond the hatred, so no point satisfying eight hundred Japanese/Korean nationalists.
