    Merry Xmas! Peace is Over


    After 70 years Japan turned back the clocks to 1945 here in Tokyo with a new take on John Lennon's famous Merry Xmas, War is Over! Crossing out the word ‘War’, Japans new generation of politicians replaced that word with ‘Peace’!


    Peace is Over.


    Where most countries search for a future with no war. A future where their children can live in peace, Japan instead rejected that stance yesterday as it rewrote its 70 year old constitution promising the world it would never again be the aggressor and bring war to others.


    Today in Tokyo, only a day after the angry protests against that change outside the Japanese parliament, and that same parliamentary building is almost quite. Perhaps Japan has already forgotten about its 70 years of Peace after only 1 day!


    If that is true, what then the future holds, nobody can know!
