    smithinjapan,

    We don't disagree that much. I think war should be avoided, too. However, skipthesong brings up a valid point. The US and SK have been doing these trainings in the same area for a long time. This one was planned a long time back. There have been no NK civilians killed through such training exercises. There was no reason for NK to think there would be this time. They killed civilians for attention. We agree they were completely wrong. They need to be seriously watched. I like the Richardson developments for the short term. However, considering NK's past record, I think the US and SK should be on guard. If that means the occasional training exercise, so be it. Use the carrot, but also be prepared to use the stick.

    skipthesong,

    Exactly. Why can't people check this stuff out before they get all hot under the collar. NK did this and it is their fault. It is not Japan's fault. It is not SK's fault and it is not the US's fault. It is NK's fault 100%.

    Does this mean no-one thought of releasing the window before the ambulance got there? That's just pathetic...

    Possibly. However, it is also possible the woman locked the doors with a keyless entry system and left the key in the ignition. One would hope that if the car was unlocked that the bystander would have opened the window.

    Do not get me wrong. I am not all gung ho for a war, not one bit.I just am sick of people making excuses for NK and cloaking them in the 'high road' kind of speeches. I think the world has definitely taken the high road with NK. All the aid they have received in the face of their asinine actions is the proof of this.

    smith,

    I know you were playin'. No worries. The other day, I honestly was not sure if the person I was responding to was referring to the shelling or to something else at first. Using the term shelling makes it clearer which idiotic thing NK did that is being referred to.

    They've been doing them in that exact location with the same threats all the time? Please.

    Please what ;)? Yes, I believe they have been doing them roughly in the same location. As to the threats, NK is always threatening SK and the US. Don't you keep up? I agree about the pride and face saving however. Thing is, there are times when NK should be made aware they have crossed the line of reason. They were this time and they seem to now understand it. So, it is all good right now.

    Have you never heard the expression 'It takes two to tango'?

    Yes. It does not apply here. NK is the aggressor and it has always been so. As you say in your next sentence, 'NK instigated this from the get-go'. So, this is not about tangoing. It is about NK constantly trying to intimidate its neighbors. Perhaps your analogy works with some individuals. However, we are talking about a country that kidnapped its neighbors citizens and denied doing so for a very long time. The high road has already been taken by Japan and SK for not stopping the aid they are constantly forking over to NK. Time for NK to learn to walk on the high road, too for a change.

    You do seem to be attempting to make it look otherwise, but you are definitely putting the onus for peace on the actual victims of violence rather than the perpetrator of the violence. That is kind of what I am tired of. NK had a choice not to shell innocent civilians. They chose to shell them. SK and the US have not done anything of the sort to NK.

    Acccording to the Japanese press, the 41 yr old is a nursery school teacher. She left the engine running when she got out of the car and she was evidently on her cell phone when the accident happened.

    thetruthhurts: Are you going to get mad at the media for using the word 'bombed' instead of 'shelled'? :)

    Actually, if the shells were fired from artillery or the like the correct term is in fact 'shell' not bomb. 'Bomb' generally means the bombs were dropped from above as in from aircraft. So, yes, the media is wrong if they are using the word 'bomb' ;)

    SK and the US have been doing these exercises for a long time and have never harmed any NK civilians in the process. NK is barking in the wind to get food and such. I am tired of people blaming everyone but NK. It is their fault they killed civilians and no one elses.

    This is a small bump on the road to Iran having nuclear energy for only peaceful purposes. Then Iranians will be zipping around happily in nuclear powered cars and all this fuel prices silliness will be like a dream.

    KevininHawaii,

    Thank you for your wonderful analysis! You are correct, of course. When Israel went in to steal the land of it neighbors that they had been working and planning for close to twenty years to give to the Palestinians for their own independent nation, the neighboring countries were extremely friendly and peaceful with Israel. Israel took advantage of the neighbors' kindnesses and peacefulness and went in suddenly and just took the land.

    You are correct, one peaceful day Israel just decided to go into its neighbors' land and steal it. The Arabs have always been friendly and peaceful to Israel and Israel just selfishly took land. It was like a stab in the back to the friendly nations around Israel.

    You are right about the fact that China is in no way interested in any relationship with Israel either economically or militarily and it has been this way for at least 17 years. In fact, very recently China went to bat for Iran against Israel because China does not like Israel at all.

    Thank you for you concise and truthful opinions!

    nandakandamanda,

    Well, let's hope it's genuine laughter. That would be infectious.

    I think that is the goal of the organization. Check out the site. They seem like decent folk.

    Actually, according to the site, it is to watch the movie about laughter, take part in a laughter workshop and to enter/watch the contest.

    Isn't the 6,000 yen to enter the contest or is it to enter to see it? It can't be just to watch. That'd be too hilarious!

    Shaku said. Tachi then explained, “Don’t say ‘I love you’. Don’t say you can cook. Don’t say you’re faithful. Those are the three sentences that drive men crazy.”

    Depends on the definition of 'drive men crazy'. Just looking at Shaku could drive more than a few men crazy and not in the bad way.

    at a time when U.S.-led peace efforts seem hopelessly bogged down.

    It is always hopelessly bogged down. No 'seem' about it.

    Yeah, you're probably right, considering the Israelis took all the best land, leaving only a few tiny scattered pieces of land for the Palestinians

    Absolutely, Israel just took it. There was no reason for that whatsoever. The surrounding Arab countries have been nothing but kind and understanding and that is how Israel responded. Remember how hard the neighoring countries had worked on their nearly twenty year plan of preparing the land for the independent Palestinian state when Israel just took it suddenly?

    The most likely solution, and the fairest, would be a one-state solution (with the right of return for the displaced Palestinians) where every person has equal rights; i.e., DEMOCRACY.

    Exactly, because no one recognizes the existence of the state of Israel anyway. It does not really exist. In fact, would it not be easier to just force all the Israelis out? Maybe they could be put in some sort of camps or something. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

    The only support they get is from some bribed/blackmailed leaders; bribed using some of the massive financial aid Israel receives.

    Straight up again! As the only country in the region that receives aid, it is not a surprise that they would use it in such a way. Did you know, the surrounding countries don't receive any aid at all. Not only that, Palestinians don't either. Can you believe it? Furthermore, most, if not all, Western and Middle Eastern leaders are merely bribed puppets put into power by a secret group that controls mostly everything in the world. In fact, mostly very country's government is like that. All except the Palestinian leadership. Thankfully their honestly is above question.

    When I saw the small version of the picture, I thought they were protesting Ka-tun and NYC.

    BTW, since 1992 Israel and China have had no economic or military cooperation whatsoever. Israel was not the first country in the Middle East to recognize China. Please don't believe the MSM hype. Israel does not have any support in the world. That is because it is always wrong. It certainly will be interesting to see how the relationship between Israel and its neighbors and the Palestinian changes when and if China would to overtake the US because their is no mutual recognition between Israel and China.

    Thanks for pointing out this wonderful truths as well.

    KevininHawaii,

    Well done! Because of the controlled MSM most people are not aware that only Israel receives aid money from the US. None of the other neighboring countries do and neither does Palestine. People also need to understand that this entire conflict is Israel's fault. Israel's neighbors have tried time and time again to make peace with Israel, to no avail. This is nothing to say of Hamas' great efforts in attempting to make peace. It really is sad to see all these countries making all this effort for so many years and have their wonderful kind effort ignored by Israel and the MSM.

    You wrote correctly that Israel suddenly and for no reason whatsoever took land away from its neighbors that they had been carefully planning for almost twenty years to give to the Palestinians for their own independent state. All that planning and preparation for nothing. Even after that, the neighboring countries have only reached their hands out in peace to Israel.

    Thank for such a clear and truthful picture of the situation.
