Fitted with the AEGIS Baseline J7 combat system and the Northrop Grumman AN/SPQ-9B radar system, both JS Maya and JS Haguro destroyers will be able to fire the latest iteration of Raytheon’s SM-3 ballistic defense missile. Being jointly developed by the U.S. and Japan, the SM-3 Block IIA features larger rocket motors that will allow it to defend broader areas from ballistic missile threats and a larger kinetic warhead.

Timing is awful.

JSDF is tiny and pretty useless compared to the Chinese war machine however small it might be in terms of warships etc.

Japan relies on the U.S military and will continue to rely on them for a good few decades to come.

The purpose of the drills is to show intent and a show of force blah blah.

JSDF is inexperienced and ill equipped against almost any confrontation despite buying some over priced U.S warplanes and a new warship.

We in the U.K don't want your chlorinated,GMO trash food.

Organic, hormone free local meat is for the richer better off people in the states..

Seeing as 27,000,000 Americans can't even afford health care the majority eat GM mass produced factory farmed chlorinated meat stop kidding yaself.

chlorinated U.S chicken and hormone growth promoted pork and beef.

I avoid U.S meat for health reasons.

Posted in: Aso says no tax cuts for time being to counter pandemic See in context

A reduction in consumption tax from 10 % back to say 5 % would help a lot more than wasting $435,000,000 on a load of tiny dirty masks.

The Abe government is a joke.

Posted in: Abe, Trump agree to cooperate on COVID-19 fight See in context

Donald Trump has said coronavirus will “go away without a vaccine” and is expecting 95,000 or more deaths in the US, as Mike Pence’s press secretary tested positive for coronavirus, reports Alison Rourke in our latest global report on the coronavirus pandemic.

> *The president’s comments, at an event with Republican lawmakers, capped a horror week in the US, in which it was revealed unemployment had risen to 14.7%, up from 3.5% in February, with 20 million people losing their jobs in April.*

The news that Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller had Covid-19, having recently tested negative, again brought the danger of the virus to the White House inner circle. Katie Miller is married to the White House immigration adviser and speech writer Stephen Miller. On Thursday one of Trump’s personal valets tested positive to the virus.

95,000 ...& Trump hails it a success..
