RE: WaPo: Japan PM sent prayer note to war criminal ceremony
I think ja, silly move when he had to know it was gonna have political ramifications. All very well honouring dead people in your private capacity - anyone might want to light a candle for a dead relative even if some people thought the said relative was a criminal - but doing it as a public thing... gotta tread very carefully with that stuff.

Great point about the in private thing. As long as he doesn't brag about it, he can worship whatever war criminal alone by himself or with his family all he wants !

I wouldn't use the word silly as if I had some pity for that guy. I don't want to call him foolish because I don't think he is a fool and by doing so he makes personal gains, in which way he is the opposite of being foolish. Well, I think he and I just have fundamentally conflicting interests. That's the harshest term I think of at the moment.

Want something? Then do something.
