I agree with Baker for the past events, but not today anymore. Of course such men and women still exist here, like elsewhere, but a few. There're many kind and considerate people here like elsewhere.
I agree with Yoshiko about the past and acknowledge the past extends into the present everywhere in the world's troubled spots. American imperialist looted Iraq and eliminated Kadafi and replaced both countries with ISIS.
Sorry to say the truth!!

Sentencing 5 to 9 years imprisonment is a real joke for raping, stealing, and murdering a 15 year old girl. It could have been different if the girl was the only daughter of Prime minister or the minister of Justice of the Japanese government. The 19 year old guy should be locked up for life or sent to gallows.

No matter what, all of their names and photos should be published and known to the people. They are old enough to be a fathers of their own. Don't confuse with the so called legal age that is not true always. Bad guys must be exposed. This gang leader is so cruel so that he should be tried as an adult person. I'll support any judge that gives him a death sentence.

I sincerely think that Zaccheroni's tactic was right and I thought Japan was overwhelming Colombia . However, there is almost no sharp shooters in front of the goal. The forward payers from the opponent team could take every opportunity for their win and left Japanese strikers helpless and stunned. Nagatomo was excellent to cover the whole field. Honda and Okazaki, too, were outstanding. After all it was luck.
But, most foreigners disappointed too much glossing of them by their narrators from all TV stations. Most important is to know your place in the world and then try to advance higher place with determination.
I'd like to recommend the federation to request and persuade Mr. Zaccheroni to stay until for the next world cup!! He is an able gentleman!

This kind of news needs follow up and I hope we could hear that the gang was unearthed, arrested, tried, and severely punished, at least for life in prison. This is not 19 century, but 21 st. Damn them!!!

Whatever BAD Things crops up in Japan, it becomes now a proven discovery all bad things come from CHINA. I don't think these kind of people could built a civilised and beautiful country.

"Nariaki Nakayama, from the opposition Japan Restoration Party, told a recent gathering of like-minded lawmakers in Tokyo who deny the military directly recruited sex slaves and instead used commercially recruited prostitutes."
This kind of provocative STUPID tongue will never repent and never change his opinion. However, almost every one knows those law makers are deliberate lairs.

You cannot neglect the past history and ignore the provocative actions and words used by either sides. Who was unimaginably cruel to the mankind in the past and what their nationalist leaders are talking and trying corrected history change to look feel and good to themselves. Here is a verse by Kuo Mo-jo -
The Iron Virgin was found in Medieval Europe,
A really cruel fortune was she,
Her inside was just a box which sharp nails,
But her outside showed the image of Holy Mary.
The Holy Mary was the door of the box,
From behind her breast a spike protruded.
The victim was put inside, and the door, closed,
The long nail thus pierced the victim's chest.
In Manchuria the Japanese had a new invention,
Sharp nails were lined up on the inside of a barrel.
With the victim in it, and both ends sealed,
The barrel was left in the streets to be kicked around.
The torture had no kind looks of the Holy Lady,
But was equipped with such iron breasts as the Virgin's.
The Japanese, they say, just named it Nail Box,
Ah, they surely are good at imitation.
I've seen such kind of cruel torture by the Japanese soldiers in many documentary and remake war movies of Japanese invasion of Manchuria and WWii, especially in East and Southeast Asia. All the kind and sincere Japanese, including the old soldiers who were once doers of those deeds, regretted, confessed, and cleanse themselves the shadows of the past.
I really Japan lead for World Peace by strengthening the peace constitution and keeping Article 9 intact, but many Japanese leaders of the past legacy are still crying the wrong to be right. I hope sincere Japanese people will win in the end and make better friendship with their neighbours.

KIM really deserves Gold. I'm not angry, but regret the judges decision. Kim's performance is flawless and artistically very high standard. I've predicted that KIM would take Gold, but not less. Sad for KIM!!!
