lacked “international sensitivity.”
lacked “international sensitivity.”
Really? How about you offended ever single person in Japan. You make it out like the country agrees 100% with you, which they don't. These types of politicians aren't welcomed in today's society and should be weeded out for their draconian views of how things work.

It's not just your averag litter guys. People are basically using it as a dumping ground for old tvs furniture and other crap that can't usually go out in the standard garbage collection. Rather than paying for disposal they take it to the mountain and dump it on there. It's a sad reality.

It's sad what happened to these women, I don't want to use the excuse that this is what happens in war, but the fact of the reality is, is that it does because morals are thrown out the door because the soldiers feel it's a free for all to do anything they want to their enemies. My question to the victims in this, is what do you want as compensation or an apology? Japan has come out to say they've deeply regretted what happened in the war. So is this not enough? Perhaps you're wishing to be taken care of financially for the rest of your life? Well, sorry to say it ain't happening. It's basically time to move on and stop wasting your life protesting for a government to change something that cannot be changed. No one can take back the trauma that the victims went through, but the victims also have to move on with their lives too.

The picture, while you can debate it either way whether it's child porn or not... is clearly inappropriate. I'm not sure what the photographer was thinking or the execs of the magazine who put their Hanko stamp of approval on this prior to it being questioned.
On another angle to this whole child and womens breasts... has anyone seen Game of Thrones? There's plenty of questionable material in there which could push the line on innappropriate acts with children.
