    Yeah, I was watching footage on CNN last night, in terms of the tsunami itself it was totally something out of 2012 or day after tomorrow or something. I can't imagine how great the geological/geographical impact might be. 8 feet is just insane.

    Google is an amazing thing. So I've got my money on a change to "No that was only a couple I meant all/most to apoligize!" But I think "NO I meant a senior commander, someone important not a foot soldier!" has a good chance of being the next change.

    Lets see...
    So...four people? Right?

    It's really difficult for me to wrap my mind around the extent of destruction. Watching that footage makes my stomach ache, literally. My god, those poor people...

    Thank you. You know guys, people in Japan are dead, a lot of them. There are two reactors that have had explosions and other sites where they are addressing problems. Other countries in the region, including where some DP members live -- myself included -- are watching these reactors very closely. Local media in Taiwan has hinted at the possibility of radiation reaching Taiwan if there were a full out explosion (unlikely, of course, but something people in the region must take seriously.) And all you guys want to have is a pissing contest.. you guys make me sick...

    They have apologized numerous times and they have admitted that it was wrong. It is only right wing nationalists nuts in Japan who believe they did nothing wrong...

    EDIT: I visited a museum in Changchun, Jilin, China (known in World War II as Xinjing 'New Capital') of war crimes committed by the Japanese. Most of the people who were there at the time I was there were Japanese from a tour group. I spoke to some of them while I was there (I am conversant in Japanese) and YES they know about what happened, and YES they know it was wrong, and YES most Japanese have remorse for what happened. You need to get your head out into the open air and actually try to understand what is happening in the world and that a small number of radical ultranationalists do not represent the entire nation. I make frequent trips to Japan and know many Japanese resident here in Taiwan. They are good people who do not express the sentiments you attribute to them...

    Yes, because people living in Japan now are somehow responsible for what their ancestors did sixty+ years ago... ****in morons.

    So we should just forgive the Japanese, the way we forgave the Nazis? oh, wait.
