Does anyone think there will be resilience in Japan later?
Japan was once a tiny island with limited land and limited natural resource due to its geographical environment. Before World War II, it was still a weak country whose economy counted on fishing but later it got the ambition to become one of the world powers. Japan copied the industrial movement that began in England and improved it in their own way so that it was more efficient for them. As industrial development required a lot of natural resources which Japan lacked Japan became eager to take other nationís resources. Due to the strong desire for learning in Japanese culture, the industrialization began to grow stronger and stronger. Japan thought it was strong enough and joined the allied force with Germany, and even after Japan was beaten up by U.S. allied and was surrounded by the U.S. army, Japan still kept their spirits and didnít surrender. The U.S. decided to put two nuclear bombs in two different Japanese cities in order to make Japan surrender. The nuclear bomb is unethical because its power is so strong that it can destroy an entire city and still leave radiation within a huge area. Radiation can be harmful to human body if over consumed. Radiation can cause cancer or even seriously death. Every nation would think Japan would drop out of the circle of world power and stay weak. What they actually did was surprising. Japan recovered so quickly from the damages and absorbed other nationís advantages, improved it and made it into Japanese technique. At that time Japan became a world power even faster than before World War II. Recently there was an earthquake happened to Japan which had caused such a tragedy. I think even if the after-math of the earthquake in Japan was like a disaster; there will be resilience in Japan very soon since the Japanese never give up.
