    Mr Abe was respected around the world and was the pride of the Japanese people. Such an end is unacceptable. It is wrong to change with violence.
    Japan, Asia and the world have lost a great man.

      @KaiserWar sad day we all lost a brilliant man. #R.I.P

      @Wusong Liao Abe said some nationalists words, but he didn’t drop bombs at Arab countries, make political rivals or activists go missing or even create concentration camps for the Uighur race. Look yourself in the mirror before saying things about other people’s leaders.

    • KaiserWar says:

      @Sensei really? No wonder this world is so f***Ed up with this kind of answers you provide.

    Rest in peace Mr Abe. Although as Chinese, I don’t really like him, but his job is not make other country’s people like him, he did good for Japan, that is enough. Assassination is act of coward, killer will get punishment he deserved. I hope Japan remain stable and this kind of thing don’t happen anywhere in this world.

    Sayonara Abe San 😪. He was one of my favorite politicians in the world. I had never ever thought in my wildest dreams that he would die this way . he was a great friend of our country India and we Indians loved him for his dedication and love towards our culture and development. I hope once the bullet train becomes a reality in India, a platform or a line gets named after him as a token of respect. tomorrow,India has declared a national mourning of our dear friend. RIP Abe San,you will be greatly missed . you coming out of pipe wearing a Mario Costume during the closing ceremony of Rio Olympics will be one of my most memorable moments of yours 😭😢

    Devastating for Japan. Mr Abe was instrumental in keeping Japan on the World stage, and retaining it’s status there. Well respected wherever he went, he will be sadly missed, both in Japan and Internationally….. A true Statesman.
