TigersTokyoDome Apr. 19 04:30 pm JST Nice to use Japanese land as the stage for winding-up the nutjob in North Korea. I don't think the Japanese population will be too pleased with using their country as a base for the war of words.

Why? If it came to an actual shooting war Kadena, Iwakuni, Misawa et al are all going to be active. Besides, there are JMSDF personnel in that photo.

In USA, No officials, along media don't know where US warships are located. Some guess they are ready to perform joint exercize near NK, no. near SK, no near Japan, no NK, etc. Pence thinks Japan willl attack NK.

I wonder what kind of cake Trump will be eating when he authorizes nukes? Sad that he has an itchy trigger finger.  Look up the ending of Threads on YT

LOL, nothing, absolutely nothing is going to come from this sabre rattling besides a shift in the impressionable mindsets of many people convinced of the boogeyman under the covers!! School scandal? Nothing to see here, move on!!

Funnily enough, both narratives (US and NK) are largely interchangeable i.e "careful, we don't want war but we are ready for it if you guys want/start it, capisce?!"

Would almost be funny if millions of south koreans and japanese ppl weren't in the mix anxiously waiting to see which one of these 2 bozos draws his gun first.

Pence is of course a very proud Evangelical Christian, who never misses a chance to remind us all about how much he loves Jesus, and is constantly guided by following His Word.

If only Jesus had said anything about what happens to he who lives by the sword.

Oh, wait…
