Japan has always been known as a techno hub. The latest robots, electronic devices comes from the Land of the Rising Sun. The Japanese take technology seriously...maybe too seriously!
That's the felling I get when I read that there's a debate over flying saucers in Japan. Nothing too especial about that, expect the fact that Japanese politicians are the ones doing the debating! The debate even had the defense minister promising to send out the army if Godzilla goes on a rampage. Fantasy and facts meshed together to make a political nightmare.
All this just because an opposition politician's simple demand that the government confirm the existence of unidentified flying objects. Fortunately for Japan, there are still a few serious lawmakers. Lawmaker Toshihiro Nikai was quoted as saying, "There are many (other) things politics has to respond to."
