Over the years one of the most popular genres of SF in Japan has been disaster fiction. Apocolyptic kind of stuff. Now they're living through the plotlines of all that fiction. The only things missing are giant reptiles that breathe radioactive fire.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren't the payback for Imperial Japan's atrocities, it was the fire bombing of Tokyo. That was the true horror of destruction raining from the sky. Thank you Curtis LeMay.

Remember that every horrific disaster that has happened to Japan, the nation has emerged stronger than before. With their economy on the ropes and the rest in ten years they could be the force that stops China from conquering the world.

(And don't make fun of the USS Ronald Reagan CVN-76. CVN-77 is named the George H.W. Bush! Can't we go back to USS Wasp, Intrepid and Essex please!)

That reminded me of a nice little article I read pretty recently as a response to the way Japan is handling the disaster.



If you're unaware of the Japanese culture, it's an eye-opening read that explains why they will persevere over such devastation.
