    What do you mean by *permit" and which TV network(s) are you talking about? Anybody can lobby but doesn't the IOC make the final call? Also, what's changed since the Sydney Olympics?

    Doh! Of course, Japan itself was under occupation during the Korean War. We're talking 3 Olympics and 74 years, not 2 Olympics and 66 years. Thanks for the corrections.

    Japan has hosted 2 Olympics since the Korean War ended. Why now and why did South Korea co-host the 2002 World Cup with Japan if this is still such a contentious issue?
