I will ask the American newspapers to apologize for using the word bombing like in "Tokyo bombing" because it never happened. They just released excess ordnance by mistake.

If the Japanese Communist Party wants to disassociate itself from the image of brutalities by other countries' communist parties, then why not change the name?
Like Japan Community Party. See, communism is associated with restrictions of liberties, state-owned assets, confiscation and re-distribution of wealth. And that is something the Western bankers would never allow.

Japan is getting better and better. Here in the DC metro area, train and bus stations/terminals have no toilets. I eat my breakfast after I arrive at work for fear of the call of nature. I call their buses the 'nicotine express",(people smoke to the very last minute before they board the bus), and the stations the "ashtray stations" because they have plenty of cigarette butts all over.

The cavemen of ancient prehistory were probably more tolerant of sports activities than these barbarians. When the Devil gets into their minds and convinces them that blowing up people if the great thing to do, you are really at a loss.
