Replies: 74
Views: 2085

Sure they will, it'll get rebuilt. As it has been rebuilt before. It was almost completely destroyed during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, and the version of Shurijo that was destroyed by fire this past week was therefore only about 75 years old. The site is of great cultural significance, but the ...

It's very sad. I visited it two years ago (The exterior was undergoing renovation, but the insides were gorgeous). Yes, it was a reproduction of the original castle that was mostly destroyed during WWII. The actual UNSCO World Heritage site is the original remains of the castle which are UNDER the n...

Yes, they were asking if you WERE talking about that as you said "The Magic D" which would be a slang term. That's not flaming. Edit: Gravlen used the words Penis and Dick on their posts to me. so this is the final decision I don't have any other Moderator to apeal too? Yes. You've had a ...

Mentioning Trump's genitals isn't in and of itself against the rules. The usage here isn't calling you Trump's genitals and seems to be an attempt to get clarification about a statement you made (From the looks of it, I would assume you were attempting a smilie and mistyped). So no, not flaming, no...

Yeah, I think not. Not only is this a copycat (pun very much intended) thread, it's also just a hair* away from trolling.

They do and they don't. It's a complicated situation that would be much easier if politicians would keep their mouths shut, but good luck with that. Officially, Japan does not deny it. True, but they also officially scrub their history books of it, and their prime minister officially believes that ...

I don't know how anyone could defend the 2015 agreement on comfort women. It was quickly forced through by an unpopular president, later impeached, without consulting any of the actual comfort women and was immediately met with anger in South Korea, foremost by the actual surviving comfort women, a...

Ok, a bit longer POV. So this is a thorny one. BOTH sides are being stupid and BOTH sides have, I feel, miscalculated badly and are now locked into a dance that neither probably really want and will end up biting them in tender parts.

As a practical matter what happens in these kinds of situations is that the ROK will pile up some number of its citizens' claims, press them with the Japanese and arrive at some kind of global settlement. It may be nice to think that the courts of one nation can enforce judgements against the natio...

Personally, I take the side of Korea. In 1965, Japan refused to acknowledge that the money and loans (provided at preferential rates) were reparations, arguing that it was simply economic aid. Furthermore, there is nothing the current Moon administration can do to overrule the Supreme Court due to ...

There's not exactly a set schedule. It would depend on a number of things such as the offence, how long it had been, and such like.

It'd be nice to have an automated process, but that kind of rigidity would probably be very unpopular.
