Putin threatened to nuclear bomb NATO and Europe. Did he mean it? Can he be trusted? End of last year he said the Russian troops on the borders were for exercise but then he crossed the line and invaded Ukraine. The danger level is up a notch or two.

Countries need to resolve their differences without going to war.

Japan should be safe....as long as they don't invade Asia.... again. Constantly playing the victim will not help.

Who knows, Putin is a dishonest dictator who like other dishonest dictators has shown his words cannot be trusted. (Ex-Stasi and KGB agents like Putin have never been know for being trustworthy. But one of his lackeys claimed among the first cities hit by Russia's supposedly unstoppable weapons would be London, if so some of his oligarchs might lose their London mansions and some of his other extremist supporters might lose their homes, but maybe they'd be happier 'back in the USSR, where they'd learn' how lucky they aren't'.

We cannot be complaisant about the possibility of nuclear war.

Millions of Japanese were victims of their own imperialist military government. Forced at gunpoint to go to war. Shot or imprisoned if resisted. Poor rations. Then women were raped by the liberators. The US military opened their own comfort stations.

The mayor unknowingly made a prophetic warning because nuclear weapons will be used in the future when the red horseman of the apocalypse comes galloping over all the earth that will result in TWO BILLION with a B human deaths. Don’t be left behind at the rapture!

Thank you @ AnodyneCommentBot.

Nagasaki and Hiroshima both are beautiful cities caught up in the racket that is war.

Constantly referring to contemporary Japan as though it were the military dictatorship of the 1930s and 40s will not help either.

tell that to Putin & Xi

Japan should be safe....as long as they don't invade Asia.... again. 

japan has not indicated in any way of their desire to invade anyone, so how about you move on from last century to this century

Japan should tell the Americans to scrap nuclear weapon first, if Japan failed to achieve any nuclear arms reduction from United Sates, then all these calls were hypocritic!

Lets all look forward to Nippon Bukokan on 15 August. That is what peace is really all about.

The real definition of "Peace" is United States,UK, France scrapped all their nuclear arsenals first otherwise this yearly "Nippon Bukokan" was meaningless and hypocritic! And if any country using peace for their political propaganda is a very deplorable thing!

He did not. You should look outside the misinformation bubble emanating from the talking heads at CNN et al.

Alas, eventually it will happen. But it will start not with the large, established powers but rather with less stable countries where ideological/religious hotheads can easily come to power. Think of Pakistan for example. Hopefully not in our lifetime.
