    Police say that no serious injuries were reported, but that a 6-year-old boy sustained a minor cut to his elbow.

    the boy was taken to hospital I presume?

    On Sept 11, a 1,000-person-strong team searched the coastlines of the three prefectures for the 2,654 people still missing.

    Good idea, 2 1/2 years later you might find them.

    nearly 300,000 people without homes... but japan has bigger fish to fry, like hosting the olympic games in an ugly radioactive country.

    the olympics are in the radioactive hands of a country that generally hates foreigners...

    Feel sorry for the cops who have to see these pictures. It's obscene.

    This brings up a good point... I'm sure there are more than a few pedophile japanese cops.

    The Japanese government has decided to spend $470 million on a scheme to freeze the soil around the reactors to form an impenetrable wall of ice they hope will direct groundwater away from them.

    Simply brilliant! Activate your super ice powers! and... where exactly is "away from them"?

    Japan angrily denounced the cartoons and said it would lodge a formal complaint with Le Canard Enchaine.

    I would love to hear Le Canard Enchaine pronounced angrily in katakana...

    But the popular weekly said it took “responsibility for the cartoons without the slightest soul-searching” and complained that the Japanese lacked a sense of humor and that they should lighten up.

    Nice. Very true. But how can you tell them to "lighten up" about something they have been trying very hard since day one to downplay, deny, and "cover up"?

    One cartoon showed sumo wrestlers with extra limbs competing in front of a crippled nuclear plant. A sports commentator says: “Marvellous, thanks to Fukushima, sumo wrestling has become an Olympic sport.”

    Haha! ANd yet, this is not such a far cry from a Japanese Manga plot, and if it were it fact made into a Japanese manga by a Japanese, it wouldn't get a second glance.

    The government has repeatedly claimed the accident and its waste water problem are under control and should not affect the Olympics.

    yeah.. yeah.. heard it all before, and it also does not affect rice, vegetables, fish, yada yada yada from the surrounding area.

    Japan is traditionally sensitive to opinions about it expressed in foreign media and has been angered that a crisis that brought such human tragedy has become the subject of caricature.

    Traditionally sensitive?? Oh cry me a river...ya think??? And I wonder why.. could it be because Japan is so fearful and ignorant about foreigners and their ways, especially of thinking?? And maybe, it wouldn't have brought so much 'human tragedy' if 1, TEPCO was not so negligent and lazy, and 2. if your gov had handled the situation better.

    “These kinds of satirical pictures hurt the victims of the disaster,” Suga told a news conference. “This kind of journalism gives the wrong impression about the waste water problem.”

    Again, what hurts the victims of the disaster more, cartoons like these that they likely will never see cause they don't have internet or television, because they are still displaced, OR them not being compensated and aided in their loss by their own officials and gov??

    Horeau said the magazine was “absolutely stupefied” by the reaction to “cartoons which seem to us to be anodyne”.

    I am absolutely stupified by how the Jgov can say the rice etc from fukushima and the surrounding prefectures can be deemed safe to consume, not to mention Japanese cartoons and media in general and how stupefying they are.

    Unlike many European countries, Japan does not have a vigorous tradition of satire. Its cultural emphasis on the importance of social harmony also discourages public ridiculing of others.

    Do the Japanese even understand satire or sarcasm??? I think not. North Korea seems to have a lot of social harmony and discourages public ridiculing of others as well...

    This whole article is a joke.

    Still, I think Turkey deserves to host the Olympic games rather than Japan.

    The character of “Tiger Mask” is a benefactor in a popular manga series. The man grows up in an orphanage and becomes a professional wrestler. From then on, he donates money to orphanages.

    It's also the character of King in Tekken

    It would not look good for the US to kill a crippled man. If they hang him it would have to be from a wheel chair or to be lifted somehow.

    lol you always seem to miss the main point of the article somehow.
