    The political meetings in Taiwan that end in fist fights? Aparently no security either.
    Korea? Forget about it...it seems like anyone can go up to the PM and punch him in the head!
    Hell, all around the world, it seems like dumb people hire even dumber people to guard ther lives.:ingun:
    Yeah but you forget this guy probably had t3h r33l n1nj1tsu so bodyguards would have been of no use. He woulda just used his smoke bombs/teleportation or like some shurikens or something. The bodyguards would have to be ninjas themselves or samurai or something to deal with a ninja, but then he would just infiltrate the ninja bodyguard team and kill that guy anyway. See the paradox you face when dealing with ninjas? It's pretty scary.

    Can't we all just agree that it was a sweet-ass running stab? I know I can.

    Still nationalist, still fanatical, but he had the balls to kill himself (seppuku, i.e. slowly, painfully), not some old man he disagreed with.
    Believe it or not, I suggested Mishima to Phrost, but Phrost was stuck on this kid.

    Oh well.

    My favorite part of the Mishima suicide story is that after storming the offices of the JSDF military academy he had the cadets assembled so that he could make his big pro-emperor, nationalist, "quit being a bunch of passivist pussies" speech and that the cadets laughed, cracked jokes, and jeered.

    He was trying to inspire a coup to put the emperor back into power and the cadets at Japa's sole military academy fucking heckled him >_<

    That had to burn.

    When he volunteered, he signed away his mother's right to protest.

    And why would she protest anyway?

    Indeed. That took some real dedication. He ain't no point fighter.

    I've never said or implied she didn't have a right to protest.

    But feel free to burn that strawman to the ground with extreme prejudice anyway.

    My mistake.

    What did you imply, then?
