"We Japanese feel pain when we lie." What effrontery and utter nonsense. This idiot claims to speak for all Japanese. He does not. The basic problem with him and his ilk, which includes many Japanese politicians and those in NHK, is that they have neither recognised nor repented of the past evils committed in the name of Emperor Hirohito, especially in China and Korea. People of many nations suffered from Japanese brutality before and during the Second World War. This man proves himself to be a speaker of untruths by this very utterance. Without repentance, there is no remission or forgiveness of sins. These racist, xenophobic ultra right wing Japanese politicians are intent on repeating the evils of the past, while the average Japanese seems to be in a comatose state of mind while this is going on around them. Is World War III just around the corner? Tokyo may not be hosting the 2020 Olympics after all. These people are leading the clueless average Japanese to destruction once again.

While extreme right wing nutcase politicians continue to hanker for the good old days of Imperial Japan, continue to deny the past, continue to whitewash the history books they teach Japanese children, continue to rewrite history and deny the Nanjing Massacre, and continue to visit the Yasukuni Shrine of Hate to worship war criminals and the deluded young men they forced to become suicide bombers, then they can expect nothing but antagonism from their neighbours, whom they so viciously brutalised before and during World War II.

Its good to see more and more people waking up to the fact that for years the biased mass media have been spinning the lying propaganda about "global warming." The theories have been exposed as being mostly conjecture, based in flawed science, and in some cases there has been deliberate deception and fraud. The Climategate Scandal in Britain a few years ago is an example of this. Scientists need money for their research, and will stop at nothing to get it, in some cases.
Al Gore made billions out of the scam, as did others. The environmentalist movement has become increasingly Marxist in its ideology. Dissenting or questioning voices have been threatened or sacked from university positions if they dare to question the quasi religious dogma surrounding "global warming" and the alarmist predictions accompanying it. It has become a religion, the Church of Climatology. Unbelievers are threatened with jihad for their unbelief, and called all sorts of names. We all know that name-calling is the last resort of those who have lost the argument.
We are all being told that we must "change our lifestyles" in order to "save the planet." That is Marxist speak for anti human, anti capitalist and anti industrialist policies. CO2, the very lifeblood of the planet, has been demonised as a "pollutant" when the exact opposite is the fact. Without CO2, neither we nor the planet could survive, yet the Marxist environmentalists tell us we must "decarbonise" in order to "save the planet." It is nonsense, and worse, it is criminal. The planet has survived millions of years of climate changes and fluctuating temperatures, thank you very much. The last 150 years of industrialisation is but a moment when compared with the long history of climate changes and CO2 fluctuations on the earth.
The "global warming" terminology has been changed to "climate change recently, because of the past 17 years of global cooling. Even members of the IPCC are becoming skeptical. Science itself is all about asking questions, and being skeptical. To suggest that " the debate is over" and "the science is settled" as Obama and others like Prince Charles have done recently shows that these people are ignorant of the facts and are willing to sacrifice their countries and their people for unscientific lies, emanating from one of the greatest frauds and scams the world has ever known. Enough is enough. Time to ditch useless wind turbines and revert to good old fossil fuels. Time to put "global warming" theory in the dustbin of history.

There has been no "global warming" since 1996, and counting. The amount of CO2 produced asa. Result of human activity is minute, compared to what nature produces. The climate changes, as it has done for tens of thousands of years.
The IPCC is a political lobby group, not a scientific organisation. This report, like all the others before it, is climate alarmism without any basis in real scientific fact. There is no evidence to support their wild claims. The climate models used by fraudulent "scientists" is based in failed and flawed co puter modelling. Ey told us we would not have snow on the planet by 2013, and the US has just had the coldest winter in years. They told us the ice caps were melting, but there has been a 69-65% increase in ice on the caps. They are frauds, as is the "theory" of "global warming." Nothing new under the sun, and nothing new in nature, either. The earth has seen it all before, and survived. It is because of stupid Green Marxist agendas and policies that there are food shortages, nothing to do with climate. This report is bunkum, and should be ignored. The world has eoken up to the scam and the fraud, propagated recently by Al Gore, Obama and Prince Charles, known for talking to his plants and wanting to do wierd things with tampons.

Mori was a disaster as Prime Minister of Japan. Always known for opening his gob and putting both feet right in. A very bad choice for the Tokyo Olympics. His English is appalling, too. Remember how he made a mistake addressing President Clinton, by confusing "Who are you?" with "How are you?" Clinton's response was priceless. "I'm Hillary's husband, who are you?" The further reply from Mori was totally hilarious. "Me, too!"
A man like this should not be anywhere near the Tokyo Olympics. He will be a laughing stock.

One of the saddest sights in Japan. Each "jizo" represents an aborted baby.i can think of more appropriate terminology than the sick political correctness of the word 'unborn' for this. The scourge of modern society. One good thing regarding this in Japan, though, is that the babies are recognises as babies, even though they are aborted. In America and other western countiries the aborted babies are thrown into trash cans at the back of the abortion factories. Its been reported recently that in New York City alone each year over 34,000 children of African Americans are disposed of im this way, and that figure is more thsm the live births. What a sick world we live in.

"The data will be used by scientists to study climate change." That says it all. More propaganda about non existent "global warming," and more demonisation of CO2. More lies and more fraud.

Abe wants to revise the history books? Well, there's a surprise...not.
Nothing new here. The LDP always tried to rewrite history and conceal the truth about Japan's wicked past from its young people. Sadly, they have all but succeeded, producing generations of brainwashed sheeple, who cannot question anything or think for themselves. History will repeat itself.

Hillary Clinton was a disaster as Secretary of State, hust like Obsma has been a disaster as president. Time for rral change. Both Hillary and Obama shoild be impeached over their many failings, especially Benghazi. Let the Democrats put her up for election of they like. The American people will speak loudly come election time, unless the voting is rigged again, and she will be consigned, with her husband, to the dustbin of history, where she belongs.

Enough of political correctness disease. Call a spade a spade. This idiot is not fit to be Head of NHK, orHead of anything.
Time for him to return to the Institution he obviously escaped from.

If you click on the video on this website, it says "This video is private." Japanese, or JT censorship at its best. However, if you view directly on Youtube, you can see it in all its racist, xenophobic stereotypical stupidity. I have flown with ANA a lot in the past. Wouldn't dream of flying with them ever again. If this is a true reflection of ANA company policy, then I will not be giving my money to these bigots again. I am offended, not just by the stupid nose and wig, but also by the Japanese ethnocentrism displayed in this ad. People who still bleat on about "We Japanese" and "I am a Japanese, this is the way we are" belong to the distant past, not the 21st century. If Japan wants to be truly "international" then it must abandon this nonsensical and archaic way of thinking and join the real world. Big thumbs down for ANA. They need to pull this advert now.

This visit was not a "pledge against war" as Abe called it. It was a glorification of Japan's wartime atrocities and the vile people who committed some of the worst atrocities in human history. Utterly disgraceful.

Abe's decision to go to "worship" at the Yasukuni Shrine of Hate is disgraceful. He may claim that it is to honour all the war dead, but the fact remains that included in that number are people who committed some of the most barbaric crimes against other human beings ever carried out by human beings in the history of the world, in the name of Emperor Hirohito.
Small wonder that his visit has provoked such outrage in China and the two Koreas, and also among ex servicemen and women, and their families, across the world.
Members of the extreme Right Wing LDP, and their lackeys within the Ministry of Education and Science responsible for the attempted whitewashing of Japan's evil past under the evil State Shinto Regime of the 1930s and 40s, either do not have enough brain power to realise that the rest of the world has never forgotten the atrocities, or else they are just plain evil, and are intent in repeating past misdemeanours. This visit does nothing but harm Japan's reputation. Modern Japan is loved, admired and respected these days, but this Shrine of Hate visit by Abe undermines all that has been achieved by the wonderful people of Japan since the 1950s, when democracy was restored under General McArthur.
Abe has done something which the present Emperor has never done, and will never do. His visit is a backward, not a forward step. It is a step into Japan's murky past, which should have been repented of, but really never has been. Visits to the Shrine of Hate by successive Japanese Prime Ministers in recent times just shows that the leopard cannot change its spots, and in the case of the LDP, the leopard does not want to, because of their extreme Right Wing ideologies. A sad day for Japan's people, and to do it at Christmas is both sinister and insulting to Japanese Christians in particular. The time for "peace on earth, goodwill towards men" has been sullied and blasphemed by Abe this year in Japan. The man is devoid of sensitivity, social graces and social awareness of the extreme hurt he has caused to many, many people, both within and outside of Japan by this visit.

Haven't paid NHK a penny for many years. The bully boys have come to my door, but I refuse them, because I never watch NHK on principle. They have the most boring News and the most boring Newsreaders on the planet, its all government and scientific propaganda and I am not going to give my hard earned cash to this discrdited organisation. Actually, there is hardly anything worth watching on anyJapanese TV channel. During the years i have lived here, Japanese TV has sunk to new depths with each passing year. Back in the 1980s it was great, and I enjoyed it, but not anymore. Same old, same old. Boring.
