Bash foriengers, all things made by foriengers but rape their ideas and cry for help when it all goes wrong. For all those who love Japan, perhaps you should work for them. Im sure 6 months latter youll have a rude awakening.
Being in for Japan, for the earthquake, they did handle it very well.

Handling a nuclear disaster is another animal altogether.

Says a lot about them eh?
There were not any people left to loot after the tsunami.

And then it got sealed off by the government.

The whole area that was damaged by the earthquake? Nope.. only part to be shut down was the immediate vicinity of the nuclear reactor.

Not one Japanese person engaged in looting in the quake stricken areas.

As of July 2011, more Mexicans (and others in the way) have been killed by drug cartel activity in the last two years than the combined American military death toll in Iraq and Afghanistan. I live 50 miles north of Mexico and you could not pay me to go there. Kidnappings, too, are common.

Mexico is a beautiful place with a vibrant culture, but, for now--even for Hispanic-Americans--it is an incredibly violent place to live within and work.

yes

Ireland is still much wealthier than my native country, so I think no reason to feel offended.

I'm not offended -- just perplexed.
