    Keep in mind that over 80% of the population of Okinawa (Okinawan's) were born AFTER WWII and only know of the war through the stories and history that the elderly have passed along to them.

    This is where it becomes imperative for the true history of what happened here remain alive in people's minds and hearts and not what Abe and his cronies and revisionists would rather have happen.

    This is just an act to hopefully stop the opposition from continuing with their plans of doing a voice analysis and locating the true culprit.

    This guy is falling on his sword for the LDP and probably getting compensated very well for it in the process too.

    It just goes to show that ignorance knows no borders.

    Considering that it is in Japan, it's in English, and in Tokyo as well, it's about what it should be I would guess.

    They don't? Does the game, "baseball" ring a bell?

    You've obviously been watching too much Japanese pro baseball. In the MLB games are played out until there is a victor, there are NO ties in American baseball.

    However that being said, I agree with the assumption, that along with the fact that there was a time not all that long ago that kids who couldn't play American football were made to play soccer, at one time considered, at least where I am from, a sissy-sport.

    such demand is in my area as well but offering just 830 Yen/hr. (!)

    Closer to 700 per hour in my neck of the woods!

    If you think for even half a second that Sidekick wrote that ONLY Japan has this problem, then you need (better) glasses or a firmer grip on the English language. You're adding words to his statement that he never wrote.

    Ahh how blind some can be.....the insinuation was obvious.

    Seems, Japanese society has a real and serious problem with ugly perverts of all kinds....

    If you think for even half a second that it's only Japan that has problems with perverts you need to get your head out of the sand.

    Want to make your point...publish the documents, plain and simple. Let the world decide.

    A separate survey by the ministry showed the jobless rate stood at 3.6% in April, unchanged from March and staying at the lowest rate in nearly seven years.

    This is just more hogwash, and it's laughable that anyone actually believes this to be true!

    This is partly why I'm leaving this country before my kid is born - too many sexual deviants and freaks with hang-ups about kids.

    Best of luck finding any place in the world that is safer overall than Japan. I have some beach front property for sale on a deserted island if you are interested.

    i am really surprised to hear such type of news about sapporo...we thought sapporo has no crime

    You really have to get your head out of the snow, seeing as how it's Hokkaido you are in. There is crime EVERYWHERE in Japan, if you think otherwise you are have to be either cut off from the world, but you are not since you post here, or blind to reality.

    Just because you dont keep up with it Japan has a lot of crime that just doesnt get reported nationally, or even locally in many cases.

    Don't be so naive.

    Another reasonable criticism of the jury system is that juries in most countries don't give reasons for their verdicts. A person is simply guilty or not guilty. If someone has been found guilty and is being sent away for a very long time, I think they deserve to know what part of their case was not believed and why.

    Fair enough, but just make sure you don't tell them the reasons before their appeals process is complete.

    No in a mental hospital for the rest of his life not jail.

    Hospitalization yes......rest of his life? We aren't living in the dark ages.

    I doubt that you are able to understand what the place means and has meant for the locals.

    And I doubt you ever learned to not assume things either. I live there!

    This news makes me very sad. I hope it's not part of a trend. The poor girl must be so traumatised.

    And not the other one? They both are traumatized and if they are smart they will quit a.s.a.p.

    Complaining about the bases is just an xenophobic and racist tactic to attempt to get votes from ignorant Okinawans that fall for it.

    Ignorant? How much more arrogant can you get? Okinawan's are hardly "ignorant". They may not wear their brains on their sleeves but they are hardly ignorant. \

    What I'm saying is that there ought to be a very strong and undeniable reason to justify the destruction of such unique ecosystem, and I don't see that.

    Get one thing straight here, that only became a "unique ecosystem" after the plans to move the base there became public.

    Prior to that no one gave a crap about the area, not even the local fishermen who do not fish the local surrounding waters either.

    I give odds too that you didnt know that either.
