Due to the radiation hazard I don't think Tokyo would be a good choice. If held in southern Japan that would be different. I am pulling for Spain.

You got to be kidding me. Is ABK48 ratings that low in Japan that they have to create a scandal over nothing? Let's get serious folks.

My Chinese wife and I use Yahoo messenger so does that mean we will have to find another instant messaging program to use or will the new email account work?

Some say this was a necessary action to end the war, but I say it was just the US taking revenge for Petal Harbour. They could have exploded the bomb on an unhabiited Japanese island or a remote area of Japan in full view of the Japanese military to get the Japanese emperor to surrender.

That is the most insensitive thing I have ever heard. People whoever suggested that should by fired on the spot. When I visited the peace museum in Hiroshima I cried, it was a sad day to be an American.

This article is the most stupidious thing I ever read. Next thing they say that indoor plumbing is bad because you don't have to carry water in from the outside that would give you exercise and strong muscles. I wish Asian countries would wake up and join the 21st century when it comes to their bathroom fixtures

Someone asked why you would want an alleged assault weapon, the reason is to protect yourself from the government which is slowly eroding away your constitutional rights. The US at one time was a great nation, but now it is on the brink of bankruptcy with over 16 trillion dollars in debt and a President who can careless about anything except himself and lies through his teeth about everything. A poll was taken by the AMA and over 40% of the doctors and nurses have threaten or will quit once Obamacare takes effect on 1 Jan 2014. Just look at Zimbabwe, where a loaf of bread cost $50 billion dollars, the US will be like that in 5-10 years.

The Japanese still hasn't apologize for the war crimes they committed against the Chinese people during World War II. The incident I am talking about is the Rape of Nanking back in 1937. The International Military Tribunal for the Far East estimated that 20,000 women were raped, including infants and the elderly. A large portion of these rapes were systematized in a process where soldiers would search door-to-door for young girls, with many women taken captive and gang raped. The women were often killed immediately after being raped, often through explicit mutilation or by stabbing a bayonet, long stick of bamboo, or other objects into the vagina. Young children were not exempt from these atrocities, and were cut open to allow Japanese soldiers to rape them.
