    wipeoutAug. 31, 2014 - 11:41PM JST "As a gunowner and advocate of gun owner's rights I find this incident unbelievable. "

    You ought to find it very believable - even more than I do. You must have had a fair amount of exposure to NRA >propaganda, gun magazines, gun shows, and gun people. It should be obvious that mass gun ownership and use >does actually result in people getting bullets lodged in their skulls. You can't be so selectively blind that this has never >occurred to you.

    I have been shooting for 41 years. No one I know would find this "believable". Most of us were shooting when the NRA ran shooting lessons. Maybe that's why we have some common sense.

    "We who support gun ownership advocate "responsible" gun ownership and use."

    Not even close. Some do, but that's hardly the same thing.

    You are very much mistaken. If what you seem to believe were true the numbers of firearm accidents and incidents of this sort would be astronomically greater. I'm sure you can tell is how many guns are in the hands of the American populace.

    "Hand written confessions" by POWs illegally held years and sometimes decades after the war was over by the Communists while receiving re-education 24/7 to "correct their thinking" as they did to many Chinese who opposed them doesn't exactly reek of credibility,

    Posted in: Although most Japanese don't share Abe's enthusiasm for Japan in jackboots, Brand Japan suffers from Abe's revisionist views because he is the nation's leader 24/7 and the world scrutinizes all of his words and gestures. By showing a lack of contrition about the horrific suffering Japan inflicted on much of the rest of Asia, Abe has inflamed tensions with China and South Korea, and left Japan even more isolated.

    As a gunowner and advocate of gun owner's rights I find this incident unbelievable. We who support gun ownership advocate "responsible" gun ownership and use. The range, the instructor (who incidentally was not NRA certified), the parent's, and the State of Nevada all contributed to this incident though sheer stupidity, negligence and disregard for common sense.

    elephant200Aug. 30, 2014 - 10:51AM JST Mr Fukuda is a good person but i am afraid his efforts might goto be vain because the Abe regieme has nothing >interest of reform but a revival of militarisms, he is looking backwards, he wants japan go back to fascist era is wgat he >means, Abe is looking for conflicts. Read the financial times commentary and realize western critics agree with the >Chinese government perspective over the nature of Abe

    LOL. I guess that's why all the western democratic powers support what Abe is doing with Japan's military. The only ones who object are fascist China and its tributary state South Korea. Have you started your Mandarin lessons yet?

    A seeing eye dog is not just a pet dog. It is effectively a "part" of the handicapped person. This should not be treated as a "property damage crime" but as an assault on the person. Considering the location of he crime there must be witnesses and a reward should be made available for information leading to an arrest.

    FernandoUchiyamaAug. 29, 2014 - 09:53PM JST I wonder why many of you guys want Korea and Japan to break relations. I can't understand that. It is a so destructive >behaviour. Japan and Korean must be friends!

    You are preaching to the wrong board. Try a Korean board. Japan apologized for the past and signed a peace treaty with South Korea in 1965 which included among the reparations money designated for "individuals". The South Korean government kept that a secret from their own people as they had used the money for something else. Now they act as if Japan has never addressed the past and are on a global agenda to damage Japan's image. Japan has and continues to seek a head of state meeting to improve relations but South Korea continues to refuse. The "hate", hostile behavior and deterioration of relations is all emanating from South Korea.

    elephant200Aug. 29, 2014 - 12:51PM JST The Japanese civilian populations of war time 70 years ago did chanting 'Mansei' slogans to support that war and >Japan was fully mobilized her militia civilians to commit a preceieved landing on homeland front…… so they were >militants instead of regular army/navy. They were not totally innocent although they were forced by their government , the war time japanese civilians were also combatants

    Anyo elephant. That's read Banzai in Japanese. Only in Korea is that read Mansei.

    isoduckyAug. 29, 2014 - 01:03PM JST Everyone who believes Korea and Japan should drop all of their diplomatic talks and relationships really should go >back to school. When you drop all ties, you are in a state of war/ cease fire.

    The absence of diplomatic or any other relations does NOT equal a state of war.

    Do you want a war with Korea, thereby acknowledging everything the Korean far right has been saying about Japan?

    Even if there was a "war" that would NOT acknowledge anything that the Korean Right has been saying. I'm not advocating breaking off all relations but your conclusions are a mystery.

    The Russians have been and are lying. What's worse is the level of propaganda in Russia and the brainwashed masses. This is going to set Russia back seriously.

    Japan needs to get it's act together and put up a coast guard station. Maybe a lighthouse and medical facilities to assist seafarers of all nationalities in the area.

    Where do people get the idea that the "hate" is reciprocal? Haven't you ever heard of "Kanryu"? Never seen Girs Generation or Korean dramas? I'm afraid the "hate" is entirely one sided, and what hate you see in Japan is a response to it.

    Patrick HattmanAug. 29, 2014 - 02:10AM JST "1,180 war criminals" Yes, it's a good idea to honor these "martyrs," including Class B and C criminals who were responsible for some of the >most disgusting crimes against humanity

    "173 Taiwanese who served in the Imperial Japanese military were found guilty of Class B and C war crimes. 26 Taiwanese servicemen were sentenced to death, although only two sentences were carried out." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TaiwaneseImperialJapan_Serviceman

    "In various BC Class war crimes tribunals,148 former Korean guards were proven guilty and 23 of them got executed. There was no appropriate witness. Nor was there interpreter. The prosecutors did not consider the fact that they were born and raised in the colony rather than in the sovereign nation. Perhaps, this is because the prosecutors themselves had benefited from their own colonies. As a result, 23 of the Korean guards got either hanged or shot and 125 of them received prison terms in various prisons in South East Asia." http://www.ne.jp/asahi/nadja/bc/frameHISTRYe.html

    tokyodoumoAug. 29, 2014 - 02:57AM JST "Abe said that those convicted by the tribunal are not considered war criminals under domestic law."

    "A Korean government commission cleared 83 of 148 Koreans convicted by the Allies of war crimes during World War II. " http://www.rjkoehler.com/2006/11/13/korean-war-criminals-cleared/

    BertieWooAug. 28, 2014 - 08:53AM JST "China needs to back down from their territorial and military expansion before they start WWIII."

    I can't believe an American said that!

    Why? What territorial expansion has the United States displayed since WWII ended? Where is the U.S. exerting territorial control causing disputes with other nations?

    Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and now building up bases around China, in Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Kashmir in an >attempt to "contain" China. And Henoko is the South East Asian equivalent of Cuba for the Chinese.

    And which of those have become U.S territory? U.S. bases around the world exist because the host nations want them there. If they didn't we wouldn't be there. And fascist China most certainly needs to be contained since they've decided they want to control all of Asia. The other Asian countries aren't very happy about that. As for Henoko being the equivalent of Cuba, that's outdated nonsense. China is already within range of US submarines with nuclear capability at all times.

    As for who is likely to start WWIII, I think the U.S.A. is the biggest contender.

    Your thinking is warped. The U.S. prevented WWIII from happening for 44 years. The US is unlikely to "start WWIII" because it already has strategic dominance over ,much of the world, has no interest in expanding it's territory or control, and doesn't have an enormous chip on it's shoulder like fascist China.

    night knightAug. 27, 2014 - 08:42AM JST @OssanAmericaAUG. 27, 2014 - 07:53AM JST Americans don't give a flying hoot. Maybe you can't tell the difference between Chinese, Koreans and Americans?

    Sorry night knight but I repeat, Americans don't give a hoot, You quoted one of the common anti-japan bandwagon news source "editorials". If you read the State Dept statement you will see that the US visit objection was because it woyld "increase tensions". In order words, China and especially SK would use it to their advantage. Furthermore, you can see that the US recognizes that he prayed for peace. Not to worship war criminals. http://japan.usembassy.gov/e/p/tp-20131226-01.html What you need to ask yourself is if the U.S. felt the same way about the shrine visits that China and SK do, why would United States Marine Corps Lieutenant General Wallace Gregson (the 3d Marine Division's commanding general) have visited the shrine in April 2001? Furthermore, if he U.S. and it's allies believed that the shrine visits represented a "return to militarism" why would they all support Japan's current military changes?

    Tinawataabe. I tryst you read the above. Stop mixing the United States with China and South Korea, The U.S. does not even purport to tell another country's politicians where they can or can not go in their own country. It is only China and SK who have done that continuously since 1985.
