Great. Nippon Kaigi Fascist meets with US secretary of state with 0 political experience and a name befitting that of a rotweiller.

I feel so much safer

Tillerson said that strengthening U.S. relations with Japan and trilateral cooperation among all three “is critical in particular as we address North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.”

Just what are you going to address? You have no government experience nor military or political experience. All you know is how to manage an oil company. You are not going to address anything, because you are in way above your head If you are smart, which I doubt you are, you'll leave it to the military generals in the pentagon to handle this situation.

Kishida said the fact that Japan was Tillerson’s first stop showed the importance Washington attaches to the relationship. He said the U.S. and Japan had an “unwavering bond.”

Of course. It is understandable that a Nippon Kaigi Revisionist would feel close to a fascist exclusionist regime like the Trump admininistration. Address NK? They're just going to escalate the situation with more rhetoric which the thin skinned fat boy in the north is so suseptable to. No one knows where this will lead. Heaven help us all.

I am not a Trump supporter and do not he him fit for office. On the other hand I think the media is very biased against him (and there are some that think this is the right way to deal with him) and there are some issues where it is senseless to try to attack him.

However I cannot even begin to comprehend the appointment of Tillerson to the Secretary of State position. It shows a tremendous lack of judgment or understand of what it takes to run the U.S. government.

I think Tillerson is likely out of his league on this.

Tillerson is probably just wondering how he can sell a few million barrels of US oil to NK without anyone knowing.

With CN having no friends, RU hacking away, US getting extreme, JP being past her prime, who is next for directions?

Tillerson's clear statement , that Art 5 of the mutual defense treaty between U S & Japan covers Northern Administered Territories of Senkaku,removes all apprehensions from the minds of Japanese people and restores peace in the country. but Japan must continue with its efforts to strengthen its defenses to become a militarily strong nation with adequate deterrent capabilities without any laxity.

Says someone with absolutely zero military or political experience. If you think that multinational corporations, ESPECIALLY oil corporations, don't deal with political and diplomatic matters then I have no idea what universe you're living in. You're only making such a ridiculous statement because you don't like the Trump administration and are willing to attack it on even the flimsiest grounds.

He claims 20 shears of diplomacy. Does he know there was Korean war that North won ?

You realize you just made contradictory statements? If Trump is unfit to be president, then of course not just his choice of Tillerson but his entire cabinet was a mistake. Therefore, the press can't hammer on him enough.

Yes, transnational corporations commonly deal with foreign governments. But the only thing they are dealing with, in Tillerson's case, is how to sell or extract oil. No human rights issues involved. No military or general security issues involved. How can I "compensate" this government official for his help without getting caught?

Jeff - I do not see my statements as being contradictory at all. At what point should the hammering of Trump stop? There is an interesting opinion piece on this below, whi

I believe Tillerson is not fit for his job. I do not believe all of his appointments are bad. Mattis as Defense Secretary was a good choice.

Do you have special intelligence data not known to the rest of us, because, to my knowledge, N. Korean has never even fired a conventionally armed test missile and certainly never a nuclear armed missile. Once detonated, the latter would be pretty readily identifiable.

@Jeff: You are right. I was pointing out his saying 28 yrs is wrong. Also no diplomatic telation between US and NK. Notice I wrote he shouldn't say anything he doesn't know.

What do YOU know about my experience? Don't make such baseless claims.

If you think that multinational corporations, ESPECIALLY oil corporations, don't deal with political and diplomatic matters then I have no idea what universe you're living in.

If you think that the head of a multinational corporation, ESPECIALLY oil corporations, have the necessary experience to deal with political and diplomatic matters then I have no idea what universe you're living in.

You're only making such a ridiculous statement because you don't like the Trump administration and are willing to attack it on even the flimsiest grounds.
