    Still not "massive".

    How many anti-ISIS marches have you been in? What is the percentage of other protests around the world compared to the whole?

    I think thousands of people marching about anything is pretty massive.

    I have already said that more needs to be done. I am clear about my disdain for ISIS and all that they stand for. Quit preaching to the choir.

    pretend that was not part of the provocation.

    You keep writing this, but you know as well as I do that ISIS never needed provoking to kill as it does.

    Stop putting the blame where it does not belong. ISIS is fully to blame for this and no one else.

    Why do you presume otherwise yourself?

    I don't presume anything. That is why I use words like perhaps and not hyperbole such how the press should be ashamed when there is no evidence of them having to be ashame of anything in this case.

    Look at the picture

    Yes. I see a woman in pain. That does not mean she does not want to discuss her pain. Perhaps her pain would be worse if she thought the world and the media had no reaction to her son's fate and her suffering.

    WilliB,

    I agree. The Kurds deserve their independence and their own country.

    To the media and press....leave the lady and her family alone, you all should be ashamed.

    Why do you presume to speak for her? Perhaps she wanted to tell Japan and the world how she feels right now. If she did not, she would not have answered the door and participated in the press conference.

    I very much doubt that this was a "record high". Just that more were actually reported in 2013.

    I think you have misunderstood the headline. A record number of teachers are said to have been diciplined, which would equal the record number being reported.

    It's also noteworthy that there countless documented cases of children who have been declared clinically dead only to recover later.

    If it is so noteworthy and the cases are so 'countless', it should be quick work for you to provide us with these cases to which you refer.

    For my part, I think you are incorrect.

    Massive.

    Thousands of protesters all over France is not massive enough for you?

    Mmm-hmm.

    That was one protest in France. There were protests all over the country and the number of protesters was in the thousands as per the very link you should have read.

    Do I think there should be even more action on the part of moderate Muslims world-wide? Yes. However, it would be wrong to ignore the protests that do occur.

    so I have absolutely ZERO sympathy for these monsters.

    This is good. They deserve no sympathy.

    Mr. Goto was a good man who got himself caught up in a bad situation. He is not the first good man that ISIS has killed. They are evil and their actions are completely inexcusable.

    It is possible that they just hit a patch of ice.

    Well, anything is possible, which is probably why the police were quoted as saying the driver 'might' not have applied the brakes. Also, since there has been no precipitation in Takamatsu since Tuesday, the possibility of an ice patch is less likely. Not to mention that fact that the police were on the scene shortly after the accident and would have conceivably noticed had there been icy conditions on the road and would have made notice of that in their reports.

    Why blame Abe? Because his sense of self-importance and tin ear have taken him way out of his depth into the shark-infested waters of international affairs.

    Meh. This has nothing to do at all with Abe. The two were captured, tortured and possibly even killed before Abe said or did a thing.

    The Kurds are an amazing people who have not gotten nearly as much support from the world as they deserve. Hopefully this will change.

    You know why. You just won't admit it.

    Nope, I have no idea what you are talking about. I do remember you clearly stating "Yukawa deserves whatever he gets" though. That I do know about.

    Now that the news is out Japan hid the kidnappings since last year

    What are you on about? Yukawa's kidnapping and beating was all over the internet and TV right after it happened. It was on the morning shows here in Japan and his name was talked about specifically. You commented about it in a JT discussion at the time.

    Sorry, but the guy deserves what he gets -- you don't just march into a war-zone with suicidal tendencies and think you are being 'selfless' and 'helping others' or what have you, then expect to garner sympathy.

    Now, you have been attempting to hum a different tune. It does not wash. You already revealed what you thought in August of last year.

    Justin Bieber apologizes for bad behavior in online video

    He is only apologizing for his bad behavior in that video or his bad behavior in all his other videos as well?

    After getting burned last year with his last minute cancellations I'm reluctant to try again!

    He was sick. You can hardly blame him for that.

    did anyone notice Honda is the latest poster boy for this corrupt company? hahaha. Funny coincidence.

    That Masaomi Matsuzaki is corrupt is without question, but whatever makes you suggest Benesse itself or, worse yet, suggest that Honda is corrupt?

    Perhaps a bit more thought before typing pat responses is in order.

    He could have kept his mouth shut!

    ? His mouth was shut when and before Yukawa and Goto were captured and tortured. It did not matter one iota to ISIS.
