Brazil was and still is in much worse shape, but they managed to pull it off at the last minute. If Brazil could do it, I'm sure Japan could do the same.

China's had a terrible, terrible Olympics here, coming in a mere third in the medals table
Being 3rd isn't so 'terrible,terrible". Compared to many other countries, they're doing quite well.

*Under Trump, I'm not sure anyone in the world would be alive in four years under him. I give it about a year until he either has to declare martial law in the U.S., or start a full-scale nuclear war with a country he can't play nice with (e.g. China).
I'm no fan of Trump, but Hillary is a liberal war hawk. She'll 'stand up to China' and start a war in Asia.

China can't attack yet. It loaned too much money to USA.
Hopefully they won't do a Pearl Harbor.

This is an American movie so it is unsurprising that an American plays the lead. Just as we saw with the Last Samurai or the US version of The Grudge.
So how well did Last Samurai do at the Japanese box office? Did the Japanese audience accept the white savior come to the aid of samurais?

Now that it's all over, let's move along. Nothing more to see or hear.
Right. It only cost needless deaths of 150,000 Iraqi lives and the destruction of their country. so much for American concern for human rights.

*If they had any class, they would offer support for the visit and acknowledge the suffering of the innocent Japanese who died in the atomic bombings. That's what they should have done. Instead they took it as an opportunity to stick the boots in and make it about them. That's terrible.
Abe could have shown some class by admitting neighboring countries also suffered enormously at the hands of the Japanese military/govt. It's terrible that Japanese are pictured as sole victims of the war.

His remark is callous, but Is it possible the offending English translation was distorted?
This is the report from Xinhua: " Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing on Friday that "It is worth paying attention to Hiroshima, but Nanjing should not be forgotten."
"Victims deserve sympathy, but perpetrators can never shirk their responsibility," Wang said.

More like the Sumo association didnt want one of their most famous wrestlers involved with a woman who had posed nude.
That's odd.....especially when sumo wrestlers practically spill huge amounts of flesh that itsy bitsy thongs can't contain.
