Saw some of the damage on CNN--Japan is no stranger to earthquakes--The Kobe earthquake killed thousands back in 1994 and the great 1923 Earthquake virtually destroyed Tokyo,killing tens of thousands--It plunged the country into an economic depression,eventually paving the way for the military to take over the country, and then we all know what happened after that
