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!!!

I wholeheartedly back Okinawans and all world citizens who stand by them against American Military Bases in Okinawa. I firmly believe that US military bases always threat the security of Okinawa citizens.

Because of ABENOMICs, I noticed that all the prices went up overnight. I'm a camera-mania, the price of Camera , especially from Canon 7D and upward models, jumped to at least 10,000 yen higher than the price before he staged a magic show of how abenomics.
Now, 70% of the Japanese see the real economic miracle of ABENOMICs, I can safely focus that he will be gone by next election for good.

this reporting lacks in depth story and the consequences. If the story ends here, you have to question the fairness of the justice system of Japan. Her talk reported here is mean!

Before taking any steps, just seal securely and close the facility for good. You've deliberately poisoned the sea creatures and the people who eat themeveryday now. What a shame!!

Weather it's going to become a tourist spot or not, the TEPCO should shut it down completely and make it sure it's totally sealed. If TEPCO doesn't do it, then, the Government must do it on behalf of all Japanese and all world's citizens. Sea creatures are already poisoned and a lot of them will effect the consumers of seafood in Japan and the countries those imported Japanese seafood. There is no reason not to shut down if the TEPCO and the ABE government are people oriented.
