    Maybe they weren't told they would need antidotes until after the fact.

    You are the one who started the hypothetical discussion.

    When other people joined the hypothetical discussion, you blame others because the argument is hypothetical.

    Enough is enough.

    If the arrested two were really given antidotes, then it debunk the whole "prank" story they were telling to the cops.

    How so? Maybe they weren't told they would need antidotes until after the fact.

    If they were given antidotes after the attack and before their arrest, they should have told the police so.

    The supreme court is likely to reprimand the high court ruling, and let the defendant win. Otherwise, they would not hear the case.

    I have some pictures I snapped from up close of some of a bunch of uyoku with the same stupid little blue hats at a demonstration they held in Ikebukuro a couple of years ago, getting restrained by police after a confrontation

    The people wearing the same blue caps are POLICE OFFICERS. The cap is their uniform.

    What matters is what they ARE, same as with Japan administering the Senkakus.

    Sorry, bud -- they are South Korean.

    Very much dangerous thought. If what you say were valid, Crimea would be Russian because it is under Russian control. Some parts of Iraq and Syria would be ISIS's because they are under its control. Your way of thinking opens a door to territory grabbing wars all over the world.

    Rule of law is the way to avoid wars. In 1951, the Allies concluded San Francisco Peace Treaty that determined the territory of post war Japan. This is why the 1951 letter by the US State Department, which drafted the Treaty, is important. Korea should obey the international laws as written in the San Francisco Peace Treaty.

    perhaps the hero An Jung-Geun, the independence activist who killed Ito Hirobumi was of the "axis" mind, then?

    In 1909, he assassinated Ito, who was a former Resident General of Korea.

    WW2 was from 1939 to 1945. The assassination does not make Korea any more "victorious" in WW2. Korea was a loser in WW2. That is why it is divided now. Learn the history.

    Also, see what US State department had to say.

    August 10, 1951

    As regards the island of Dokdo, otherwise known as Takeshima or Liancourt Rocks, this normally uninhabited rock formation was according to our information never treated as part of Korea and, since about 1905, has been under the jurisdiction of the Oki Islands Branch Office of Shimane Prefecture of Japan. The island does not appear ever before to have been claimed by Korea.

    For the Secretary of State:

    Dean Rusk (Assistant Secretary, US State Department)

    More ultra Nationalists trying to impress their Yakuza bosses

    SpeedFEB. 23, 2017 - 07:53AM JST

    If Takeshima Day is being sponsored by the Shimane govt. wouldn't the protesters be against the idea of it being "Takeshima" rather than "Dokdo"?

    Alfie NoakesFEB. 23, 2017 - 08:00AM JST

    protesters

    Erm, shouldn't that say "Yazuka scum who spend their days importing methamphetamine from North Korea, engaging in child prostitution, extortion, gun smuggling and paid intimidation for far-right politicians"?

    i always LOL when i see these guys. clinging to scraps, they are. the island is Korean territory. period.

    The guy in the picture is a Korean nationalist protesting against Takeshima Day held by Shimane Pref.

    Mike LFEB. 23, 2017 - 01:24PM JST

    Dear Japan,

    Korea was victorious in WW2 72 years ago. Get over it.

    LOL. Korea was on the axis side and hundreds of thousands of Koreans fought and killed US soldiers. Not a single Korean fought for the Allies during WW2. Learn the history.

    It is clear from his message that his Majesty wants to retire after celebrating the 30th year of his reign or Heisei 30. Why do the people here talk as if his Majesty wanted to retire immediately?

    If he is the Emperor, then why doesn't he just quit himself?

    He should just take his wife and run away, far, far away.

    How many of here understand what he said in his video message in August last year?

    He said he wanted to retire by around Heisei 30 or 2018.

    How do you address the fact that Shiro Azuma was not in Nanjing when he "witnessed" Nanjing Massacre? The location of the court does not matter with regard to this question, does it?

    So, smithinjapan, do you admit that your claim is based on false statement?

    If the interpreted output is garbage, there are two possibilities.

    1 The interpreter did a bad job.

    2 The original language was garbage.

    The viewers are to guess which the case is.

    He is so overconfident and yet so logically unconvincing that my interpreter friends and I often joke that if we translated his words as they are, we would end up making ourselves sound stupid.

    Viewers would guess that the interpreters are doing bad job because Trump is overconfident. That is what she is saying.

    No comment from CH3CHO when given direct quotations from his countrymen. I probably would just pretend the thread never happened, too.

    What question?

    do you honestly believe the world being square is open for debate?

    Unrelated question. By the way, no one, not even Einstein knows the end of the space/world.

    Even former Japanese soldiers have admitted to atrocities -- you are YOU to tell THEM they are wrong?

    Written by Shiro Azuma, former IJA soldier, in his diary published in multiple languages (not Japanese, though):

    Shiro Asuma was sued for false statement in the published diary. The court concluded on January 21, 2000 that the diary was false because Asuma was not in Nanjing during the days of alleged "Rape of Nanjing" based on the troop record and a diary of his fellow soldier.

    Japan has changed their constitution several times since the Occupation ended.

    They are just being polite, though no idea why they feel that necessary. We all know what it means, including, I suspect, you.

    Why don't you prove it, rather than repeating "we all know".

    Both sides agree that tens of thousands of Chinese soldiers were killed in the battle of Nanjing. When you read the ruling of Far East Military Tribunal after WW2, you can find that China admitted that the Chinese soldiers in Nanjing took off their uniforms, wore plain clothes and concealed their weapon, without surrendering. Japanese soldiers marching into the city killed a lot of unsurrendering Chinese soldiers. Basically, the argument amoung historians is whether the killing of unsurrendering Chinese soldiers is massacre or not.

    The article itself claims that the "Rape of Nanjing" is just a mainstream view. Prove it, before making it a truth.

    Some respected academics estimate a lower number of victims, but mainstream scholarship does not question that the incident, known as the “Rape of Nanking,” took place.

    This argument bothers me a lot. The president of APA Hotel is criticized not because his assertion is a lie but because he in not in "mainstream". Is expressing a minority view a crime or something?

    She's either a bad translator or just too old/ unfit for the job. I've translated many of Trump's speeches and Press Conferences for news outlets by 1, 2 a.m.

    From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only America First, America First.

    この日から今後は、新しいビジョンが我が国を統治します。 この日から今後はただひたすら「アメリカ第一」だけだ!

    I am sorry to say this, but your Japanese output is not professional quality.

    1 The ending of sentence, ます and だ, should not mix in a speech.

    2 この日から今後は sounds redundant. Should be 今日この日からは or この日から先は.

    3 ビジョンが我が国を統治します sounds strange because the subject, ビジョン, is a "thing". In addition, present form 統治します sounds strange with この日から. So, 新しいビジョンでの統治がこの国で始まります sounds natural.

    The prime minister, who once prevaricated over whether Japan’s wartime aggression amounted to “invasion”,

    "prevaricate" https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/prevaricate

    to deviate from the truth

    All he said was that the the difference between "aggression" and "invasion" is a matter which is not worth commenting because the definitions of the terms are not clear cut.
