Kristof on Japanese culture after disaster: "Something we Americans can learn from"

On last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight", Piers Morgan interviewed Nick Kristof of the New York Times, who lived in Japan, about Japanese culture. "The Japanese have really been reared from the time they were born to work together, to suppress individual yearnings and to pull together and be stoical," he said. The way the Japanese deal with disaster is "something we Americans can learn from."

Piers also talked to Matthew Wald about the potential worst case scenario when it came to nuclear meltdown:

Wald compares the nuclear situation in Japan and in Chernobyl and addresses whether the U.S. is at risk:

    Your upcoming interview with Mr.Nothingbutayahoo of Israel will become a typical one sided interview to reflect a one sided or a two sided media hype of the failures of this man?
    Are you intending to ask any constructive questions or shall this become a mere glossed over version that only Israel is always correct and Palestine is always wrong?
    Ask this man, why our government still gives Israel free military aid as his nation already possesses enough weapons to place all his neighbors into the stone age?
    Want to fix our finanical budget ask Israel to just say NO to more weapons it doe not need, or sell them the weapons to pay down our massive debt.
    Ask him when he intends to remove all his illegal settlements? Cause now, that family was killed cause of his ignorance to get out land he does not own,nor will not own after peace one day does happen

    Hi Piers, a question? Why when we can land a rocket on Mars; can we not get food, water & heating to those in those coastal places that need it? Also, medicines...yesterday on HNK I saw a woman in a shelter in one of those towns having a asthmatic attack & the doctor didn't even have an inhaler to give to her, God knows if she's alive now or not? If those people die in the shelters, then we (the world) can forget promising any country that we can help in the future, because we'll be lying. Now Piers, can you check with the American government if the US ships with their helicopters that are there can bring those people those things by air...or is their survival just a death sentence in the making?

    One more thing if they the Authorities can use helicopters to try to dump water on the reactors; which turned out to be a waste of time anyway, why not try to use the helicopters for to get supplies to those in the many shelters? The mind boggles, at least mine does.

    In his interview with your tonight, David Remmick indicated that Prime Minister was ineffective because he hasn't ended the occupation. He seems to feel that Israel should make ALL the concessions necessary with the Palistinians for peace. Why wasn't he asked why the Palistinians haven't removed Article 4 from their charter. It advocates the total destruction of the state of Isreal. I think that Israel has a right to demand that its enemy declare that it has a right to exist before making. concessions.

    On the 3/16/2011,eastern time,Piers Morgan program,a 'writer' from the N.Y.Times was attempting to make a political comment regarding Pres.Obama and Lybia. However,this person used the word -stupid- quite inappropriately when discussing an Obama decision. He was being utterly disrepectful to use that word in the same sentence w/our great President's name. You,Mr. Friedman are the one 'working' for a rag that will go under,due to declining subscribers (online and paper). Mr.Obama is the President of a great country w/ mostly smart folks. Booo to you!
