    Olegek Wrong 1 Finland never was neutral to Soviet Union before 1939. This land was 100 % anti-Soviet. Sad but truth. 2 Before the First World War it was a part of Russian Empire and Russian Empire was on the "right side of history" (with Britain and France) but as a result of war and disorder (and ex-ally agression, lost more than bad Germany) 3 The "new border" with Finald passed 32 kilometers from Leningrad (second Russian city after Moscow) 4 The Second World War was started 7 July 1937

    Its historical fact that prior to the Soviet invasion in The Winter War, Finland along with Denmark, Sweden & Norway were neutral counties. There might of been anti sentiment among Finns towards the Soviets, but they weren't plotting a war against them.

    I know very well that it was a part of the Russian Empire, and before that it was part of Sweden.However Finland gained something called independence on 6th December 1917.

    And Finland lost towns and territories due to a invasion that was deemed illegal and got the Soviets thrown out of the League of Nations.

    Seriously? Its started on 1st September 1939.

    Many Russians saw the West’s boycott as disrespect. An estimated 27 million Soviet citizens were killed in the war, which began for the Soviet Union when the Nazis invaded in 1941

    Wrong. The war began for the Soviets in November 1939 when they decided to invade the then neutral Finland.

    I couldn't imagine a single British person being offended by this. Naming a baby monkey Charlotte is right within our sense of humour.

    I've got two lists, one for family and one for my bestfriends. I can easily just go onto these lists to see what they have posted without having to search for them through a massive newsfeed of crap.

    This is too close to home for me.. I won't give a name, but one of the guys who has been charged with the sexual assault was a friend of mine during my time in the RN and I was only talking to him earlier in the week about Hockey. So if he does get found guilty of sexually assaulting that poor woman then I will be ashamed because I thought he was better than that.

    Ah yes, because it was the airports fault... A airport where hundreds of other planes are able to arrive and depart without any issues every other day.
    I think that the problem here lays with your pilots/equipment. But of course being a SK carrier I can't but feel that there is a anti Japanese sentiment in this decision.

    So does this mean you should start flying into Kansai International instead of one of the Tokyo airports? Sounds like your bags are guaranteed to arrive, doesn’t it!

    Depends on whether your departure airport can be arsed to load your bags to not.

    Not too surprising when you consider the the diverse amount of food options now available here in Japan. This happens in all the developed countries. The traditional stable foods fall in consumption when foods from overseas are introduced.

    I like rice and I do eat it everyday. But my first choice is soba noodles

    A bunch of annoying and disrespectful brats getting slapped down. Good! Should happen more often with how disrespectful the younger generations are becoming.

    Well its a start I guess. I absolutely hate it whenever I see a large group of Chinese tourists over here because the behaviour from some of them are just awful.

    There is NEVER any excuse or reason that would justify hitting a child. Stressed? De stress yourself by doing some fun activities with your child rather than hitting them. Well that's what I do when I'm stressed anyway!

    Thank god the step mum reported the abuse rather than turning a blind eye to it.

    Do they honestly think that the rest of the world are stupid enough to believe this tripe?

    For me it was the lack of a proper fish and chip shop. But I was such as happy Brit when Malins opened in Tokyo :D

    My first and foremost thoughts have always been with the souls who lost their lives and the families and communities that were left devastated by this disaster.

    I remembered to type in 3.11 on Yahoo today and I've also been promoting it to everyone I have on social media encouraging them to do so as well.

    I remember that day clearly even though I wasn't in Japan.

    I woke up at 7am and was told to turn the news on straight away. I then watched in complete horror the shocking devastation that was being shown on my laptop by the BBC. I then spent the next few days watching the 24 hour dedicated feed by the BBC of the disaster and I just watching all the devastation and increasing death toll with complete shock and sadness, because I couldn't believe what I was witnessing to a country that I loved.

    The banners read “Distorted Japanese history textbooks and full compensation and apology for wartime sex slaves from Japanese government.”

    You had your compensation in 1965. So shut up and abide by the agreement that you wouldn't demand anymore compensation.
