Default Re: The North Korean Situation II

Yeah, Japan's not popular. My girlfriend and I sometimes argue. She hates Japan and hates the fact her brother's living in Japan and has a Japanese girlfriend. I try to tell her that you can hate the government, but you should always give individuals a chance, and I've been to Japan several times and always had positive experiences. But she's not having it.

When I was teaching at a university after the tsunami in Japan in 2011, one student wrote an essay saying Japan deserved it essentially, which made me very uneasy.
