    Where did you get all these quotes from?

    I wonder if Germany (not that it's likely) had a similar unfortunate calamity and the president said the same thing to help Germany, would the same people bring up Nazism and Hitler?

    Can't speak for anyone but myself -- I certainly don't agree with it. But what can you say, their comments are stupid. But you don't need us Americans to say whether or not we agree to this, because people from all walks of life say vile and disgusting things. It's not just an American thing.

    Somehow I doubt, if it had happened over here (Cali your days are numbered) that the Japanese would be saying, "serves you right for dropping those bombs on us."

    Sadly, I have to work with some of these same idiots.

    You have to remember that it's the idiots and the zealots who come out from under their rocks to bloviate this kind of garbage. Sane, intelligent people are silent, or do something to help.

    I found this comment amusing: "Those f*ing Krauts finally got what they deserved for bombing Pearl Harbor."

    Non sequitur.

    People are such idiots. The US and Japan are strong allies now. They've made their amends. Get with the times people. Pearl Harbor happened...it was awful. It's over. Time to move on (especially since half of those posters' grandparents probably weren't even born when it happened).

    socalfitness saidI think it's terrible, even shameful. In WWII Germany did even worse against humanity. I know Germans today born decades after WWII who feel remorse and shame for their country's actions, so to hold it against generations later, be it Japan or Germany is unfortunate.

    On a better note, in addition to the US and others, both China and Russia are helping. Interesting to note because both have had bitter disagreements with Japan recently. Maybe one thing good to come is they will decide to resolve differences and become friends.



    The poster implies that one can take a simple cut and paste of a few individual Americans that portrays the attitude of the country at whole.

    In the 80's there was significant economic tension with japan, still Japan is one of our strongest allies, and its getting stronger.

    When it comes to hospitality there is no other country like Japan. And conversely when Japanese citizens come here, they seem only too happy to put up with American garbage in order to see our sights.


    We could pick any country of origin and cut and paste nasty and hateful facebook comments, but this proves nothing.


    I would tell you I spent some time in Japan, in preparation for a talk about a significant medical problem that relates to crush injuries and its effect on the kidneys. They couldn't be more helpful regarding information about the Kobe earthquake. In fact I accepted the best gift in the world, a Japanese Akita from them, who is now a member of my family.( in addition to a shiba inu)

    It just makes me really sad that people who would write horrible stuff like that actually exist.

    These people are hopeless with such opinions and attitudes about God is on our side, we're the greatest and god did this to punish the Japanese for Pearl Harbor. What site did they post this mindless bullshit on ? These are the kind that are too stupid to even be embarassed by their actions when facts are explained to them. This is so sad to see in writing from Americans and I hope a lot of people are counter posting to call them out for such thinking.

    The posts in question are on Facebook, Reallifedad, and not hard to look up.

    I'm appalled.

    Not all that surprising. These comments show the lack of common sense so prevalent among my fellow citizens, which I'm ashamed to say.

    This makes me wonder: when a MAJOR natural disaster happens here, will people in Japan say that we, the United States, deserved it for dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

    And those comments about God being so utterly upset about Pearl Harbor? I guess God really isn't that upset about GLBT youth, who are among the most vulnerable individuals, committing suicide because of vitrolic attacks by so-called "Christians" using His name? Nor is He upset about people using His name for political and monetary gain? Of course He isn't! How sill of me! The ONLY thing God has ever been upset about was Pearl Harbor.icon_rolleyes.gif

    With all of the possible variations in gene expression there's bound to be 0.0001% of the population whose chief caloric intake is antifreeze. This is what happens when they have their mom create a Facebook account for them.

    I think everyone is appalled at this. Words are in vain for this kind of ignorance.
    People should educate themselves. My English teacher was right about the existence of Dumbf*ckistan

    Definitely agreed. I think Karma paid Japan back some 70 years ago when their economy collapsed. Not because of this. Whoever posted that on facebook was definitely crossing the line.
