The priests believe when a person dies they are cleansed of their evil deeds. It is a sort of redemption of forgiveness. Christians believe in this but differently. The war criminals paid the price on earth for their misdeeds. I am not sure if they are forgiven or not but as a Christian it is not my call.
So what the PM of Japan is exercising his rights under the Constitution. It is his right and no outsider is going to dictate what he can do in his own country under the law.

Russian "sodai gomi", they might as well leave them in Russia. They will be no use in helping Syria defend itself from the Americans or Israel. What good did the Russian weapons systems do for Iraq or Libya?

Forty one years latter and the Americans are still here. We had such hopes they would leave after reversion.

Guru29 the people of Okinawa do not want to be a part of the Peoples Republic of China! To be under the iron fist of the communist stinks. No I would favor fighting to the death! We do not need the help of the Americans to sink Chinese sodai gomi submarines!

YuriOtaniMay. 15, 2013 - 01:02PM JST
The SDF is specialist in hunting subs! We have the worlds best equipment and training. What the Chinese is doing is testing our defenses. As for the comments from the Americans, you wonder why we have a poor relationship with such vain people. Either you are on Japans side or not, make up your mind! Then again I should not take the duckspeak of low level American military to heart.

Was getting .02 percent in Japan. Made 20 percent so far and get about 1.5 percent. What is bad news for english teachers is good for me. As the price of Japanese goods falls jobs will return to Japan. The only people who made money from the strong yen were english teachers and the dirty rich.

The Peoples Republic of China would not hesitate to sink a sub or shoot down an intruding aircraft.

zichi my main point is an atomic war is much worse. As for your numbers 5 rems per year and yes I understand it is 10 times what the government thinks. My point is for those that want to use atomic weapons. Also to show how small Fukushima is in comparison. Also when above ground testing was done many Americans received 20 to 50 rems within a very short time. How many people died in Fukushima? How many people die in vehicle accidents? How many people die from air pollution per year?

tmarie they do hear the people and the people want them restarted. I looked at the numbers again and it is in the mili rems for fukushima. After a ground level one megaton explosion the dose is 3000 rems. All people would be dead within 24 hours. The air pollution caused by running the fossil plants kill hundreds of thousands throughout the world.

I am against changing it as the change is the road to Imperial Japan. I really do not want Japan to have the mindset of striking first without warning. In all of Japans history a declaration of war before the attack is not among them. I really want to see peace and while I think we could give a good fight do not want to see it happen. I do not see a war with Russia. However an accidental war with mainland China is very possible. All it would do is a mistake happen by either side.
Japan should never again be able to threaten our neighboring countries. Article 9 should stay in place and not be rewritten.

Imports become more expensive and local production less. The recovery will pick up steam with more and more returning to the workforce. Make Chinese and Korean sodai gomi too expensive,

Arthur Dumbolov, the Soviets stole those islands and committed ethic cleansing a war crime. I am waiting to see what President Putin will put on the table. Japan is not a threat to Russia. I am in favor of a true meaningful lasting peace between our two nations.

YuriOtaniApr. 29, 2013 - 09:23AM JST
Honest Abe, you may have to take a compromise. Two in the hand is better than 4 in the bush. Also it will liberate Yuri To, do try and make a deal that lets the former residents return to the other 2 islands.
YuriOtaniApr. 28, 2013 - 03:34PM JST
Scrote than Russia can expect no pipeline deal. It would be stupid to reward the Russians. Let them sit on their gas or let South Korea buy it. At least until the North cuts the pipeline.
