I Really Hate People Sometimes

(Got this link from Tristan's blog, since I usually read CNN instead of the Times.)

So, what happens to a group of people who go to a war zone, trying to help the civilian population, get taken hostage, and are released? Most coutries would welcome them back with open arms. After all, it's one thing to send a squad of Marines to a place. Volunteering to go without so much as a pistol or backup is a lot different.

It's also foolhardy, depending on one's point of view, but I don't know too many people who would find a whole lot of fault in trying. Well, what if they're Japanese? They get blamed by the government for causing trouble, and shunned from society to the point that they're saying that having a gun waved in their face wasn't so bad, because it only lasted a few minutes.

So here's my little open letter to everyone.jp:

Dear Japanese people,

Please stop being complete and utter fucktards to the people among you who aren't cowards, who were willing to put themselves in harm's way for what they believe in, and were captured and imprisoned as a result. This does not make you look good.

Thank you.
