To think that Nuclear weapons won't be used in our lifetimes is naive!
And as far as Japanese/US war games in the Pacific is it not coincidental that beach storming is included in the fun?
The whole US economy is war centered is it not?
It is likely that we'll see a Pacific War in our lives but I hope not........

No,it adds up to bad news for all of us-China holds nuclear weapons which would be used to defend its borders.
There won't be any winners in a nuclear conflict.
The US may push the wrong country too far......

I'm in Kobe and a few years ago there was a street protest against the red light business- that is how bad it is!
Now with the economic situation even worse I can bear witness to the multitude of women out there
As the last trains come and go the prostitutes are out in force
It is said that 30% of of single women are living in poverty and need to find other income
And the women we can see on the streets are nothing compared to the number working on outcall and in bars.

Meanwhile the LDP government is giving/lending billions of dollars for projects all over the world.
Also,the Japanese are steadily falling into poverty.
Witness the large numbers of Japanese prostitutes on the streets these days????

Japan has yet to make a concerted effort to boost alternative power!
In fact, power utilities have recourse to block solar power as TOO much power is flowinging into the grid!A falling population and less industrial activity bodes well for a sustainable future..........

Why is starting a nuclear reactor the key to revitalizing the economy?
Will energy prices fall?
Will the major producers relocate their FACTORIES back to Japan?
Will it be the start of a new revitalized industrial revolution ?
Japan was in dire economic straits before and will be in the future because the leaders of Japan do not understand how to revitalize the economy!

Unfortunately,many records concerned with the war were destroyed by Japan's Imperial Army thus there is some inability for the Japanese to acknowledge human experimentation,rape,chemical and biological weapons and of course forced prostitution.
This is why Japanese politicians can never really acknowledge that there were not only Japanese victims of war but also foreign ones.
This skewed view also persists with regard to present day events such as natural disasters.
