In the photo, see the front man pointing his weapon in the door? The weapon is not nestled into his shoulder at all. If that were a real gun and he fired it, it would kick back, glancing off his vest causing him to fumble and have to re-aim.
My airsoft buddies in Tokyo would ANNIHILATE these SDF buffoons in a firefight.

If a child is in daycare for 20 hours or more a week, that child feels it has been abandoned by its mother and will be emotionally damaged for life -- trust issues and serial co-dependent relationships for starters.

Why not the US just out of Japan and let Japan have a strong self-defense force (and keep Article 9)? Common sense. Would you want me to sit in your living room with a loaded gun to help "protect" YOUR family. No, you wouldn't. I protect my family and you protect yours.

When North Korea makes a threat, the US makes money selling defensive weapons to South Korea and Japan. North Korea being a "threat" is a scam. MODERATOR: Every time I post this opinion, you remove it and say it is "Off Topic", which it isn't, or "Offensive". Really? Who am I offending? YOU, perhaps. Keep your politics OUT of your decisions to delete comments.

Having 2 huge tilt-rotors is a bad idea. Better to have 4 smaller tilt-rotors. If an RPG takes out one rotor, the other 3 could keep it from a hard landing. With only 2, you're toast.

The US wanted to test an atomic bomb on a real city. Japan's cities were convenient. Sociopaths are in charge.

How does this work? Do all Japanese men sound the same on the telephone?? How can you not recognize your own family speaking on the phone?

So, the problem as been acknowledged. Good. And good idea.

Here's an original idea that mixes in Miami Vice and the superhero craze. Black vice squad agent is ex-military. Was in a secret genetic engineering program to make super-SEALS. He's an expert martial artist and gunman (Deadpool-ish) but can breathe underwater and has lightning reflexes. His name? BARRACUDA. The Heart song is the shows theme song (similar to old classics brought to life with Gaurdians of the Galaxy). Give him a signature car, like the classic detective shows (Magnum P.I., Columbo, Rockford Files..). Which car? How about a prototype of the 2019 Plymouth Barracuda. http://www.allpar.com/cars/dodge/barracuda.html Boom. Not so difficult.

Honestly, it never stops blowing my mind that people actually have to learn to swim. When I was in kindergarten, my class was having a learning to swim day. I immediately got into the pool and starting swimming. I played in the pool while the other students were spending hours learning to do what seemed totally natural to me. If I actually wanted to drown myself, I would REALLY have to work at it, since I naturally float (doesn't everyone?). Seems people just over-think the situation and freak out.

Japan could be EXPORTING energy if they would just harness geo/hydrothermal energy.

WRONG. The black half-vampire vampire hunter superhero Blade played by Wesley Snipes from the film "Blade" (1998) and it's two sequels is a MARVEL character.

North Korea has WMDs and has threatened to use them, but the US hasn't brought that regime to its knees. Why not? North Korea is a cash cow for Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. North Korea and the US are skaking hands and laughing behind Japan's back. Such a scam.

If a doctor is prescribing SSRIs (anti-depression medication) such as Prozac, Zoloft, etc, then, yes, the doctor should ask about gun ownership. Nearly all mass-shootings in the US were perpetrated by a shooter that had been prescribed SSRIs. The warning labels on anti-depression medication list such possible side-effects as "suicidal thoughts" and "psychosis."

"Security" is a euphemism for State power. Vigilance on the part of individuals is needed, not increased security measures by Big Bro. As other commenters have said, these types of atrocities simply cannot be prevented by planning to thwart them ahead of time. Now there is a knife attack at a mental institution. Another knife attack at another mental institution is unlikely in the near future. So, what's the next threat? Could be anything. Could involve knives, poison, acid, fire, gas, debris on a shinkansen track, releasing a starving bear in a school yard, putting liquid mercury in people's unattended shoes in an entryway.. You look one way and the attack comes from the other. We need more observant and brave people, not "security."
