Blatter writes "FIFA does not lose control...",yet it would be more honest to write "I do not relinquish control".

Jerryll, the Germans are not proud of the fighters and weapons in WW2. They are proud of the people who fought against the Nazis. I do not see a reason to be proud of carrying a weapon to threaten others. In my opinion there is no alternative to using your brain.

Why is it so difficult to admit, that one's own people did wrong things in the last war? Why desperately trying to uphold a wrong image that nobody believes is true?

Yeah,it is about time to change the constitution! Worldwar II is over 50 years away, and the vows about "No more wars" are forgotten. Ready to start a new adventure. And of course, this is the will of the Japanese people! Too many survived the tsumanies and earthquakes, they just love to spend their lives in defending the ideas of some extremists!

I think Wikipedia is overrated. If people without basic information on their subjects use it as a source of information they will be disappointed. Bye and bye the enthusiasm wanes. And this change of mood catches on on the editors.

This guy does not see that he is endangering the whatever fragile peace Japan is still enjoying with her neighbors. And he is risking the ecconomic recovery with his doublespeak.

It is all developing just as the smart guys A. I. T. planned. If they get the attendance they need to get voted, they do not care when the whole country will be destroyed. The more dead heroes they can get, the more "glory".

What makes me furious is that emperor Hirohito offered to give his own life when he talked to General Mc Arthur in order to negotiate peace for the Japanese people, yet Abe, Ishihara and people like them do not appreciate this but show their disrespect by risking peace by arrogant words and deeds that could provoke a war. These "politicians" think nothing about the security of their people, it seems.

The problem may be that from the outside of Japan it does not look that simple. The warmongers in this country first teasing China and now wondering when the people there get angry. Neither the US nor the UN have 100 % proof that China is the bad guy in that case.

I am wondering why so many people in many countries want to have the illusion that something that originally was not meant as marriage, now is declared marriage. It is confusing only. There is nothing bad with this decision of the Australians.

I am just amazed how quickly all the big words about NO MORE WAR etc from the beginning of this month are forgotten. As soon as some clever politicians stir up nationalistic emotions everything about peace is forgotten. And all the future business chances are down the drain.

This is not funny at all. And to think one wrong will be corrected by another wrong is stupid. Although it is hot outside let us keep our cool and control our feelings. If people start taking the law into their own hands, nobody will be save anymore.

For me the obvious consequence would be to carry out the death sentence for the Aum leader as fast as possible.
Shall we really risk more threats to innocent passengers?
