At 8 a.m. that morning, she was on the second floor of the school’s building, about one mile away from the site that was about to become ...

Speaking at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, Obama offered no apology for the bombings but called for a ...

You don't get a world without nuclear weapons by unilaterally disarming. What are China and Russia doing?

I am against the use of nuclear weapons,  any sane person is. But it must be unilateral. The matter of US use of such weapons in WW 2 must be reviewed in 2 vectors. One is that were atrocities by the Japanese in China and then to the American troops, the second is that without their use historians suggest at least a million American casualties without the use of nuclear weapons. Now Japan is a democracy, and hopefully will remain as such.

Good luck. Laws only protect those with better attorneys. Better attorneys are determined by performance enhancing drugs and procedures. Good luck beating Nana.
