So are you saying to me that no nation is capable of defending itself or taking care of its own internal affairs? Pax Americana is nonsense.

I'm not quite sure why America does need to lead globally, it will only result in more unjust proxy wars and more global animosity towards the United States.

I know Ukip in particular get a lot of stick from the media and also a lot of accusations of racism but I don't agree, Ukip may be a tad unorthodox but I see no problem with wanting to control your own borders and laws which the United Kindom does not anymore.

Posted in: China should build ties with Russia to counter Japan: newspaper See in context

I've heard that Russia wants to build ties with Japan but I feel as though recent events and the ever lingering issue of the Northern Territories/ Kurils is a bit of a stumbling block with that.

I think they certainly were negligent but to try and prove that they had murderous intent which is what they'll have to do is going to be hard seeing as how I don't think any of the crew set out that day to kill the schoolchildren.

Posted in: China accuses U.S. of emboldening maritime rivals See in context

Isn't it funny that China can go from flexing its muscles with other nations and then turn into a victim when it suits itself, there is a kind of juxtaposition with that and it leaves people just kind of nodding politely when China mouths off like this as if to say "yeah yeah, China whatever you say..."

I hear that there are British S.A.S and S.B.S on standby in Nigeria at the moment so hopefully we do wipe these scum off the face of the earth.

China China China, Can anyone actually feel sympathy over the ordeals they went through during WWII when they behave in such a drastic aggressive way to all its neighbors. I honestly believe these asian nations should band togther against china stop trade and discuss invasion.

The funny thing is that while the People's Republic whinge and moan about World War 2, its really only Taiwan who have the right to be angry at Japan but they remain civil.

Fox Cloud Lelean

I think you're right however I think any war with the North would be very costly and last many many years mainly because I don't think China would allow the North to fall and possibly have US military bases on the border, this was shown quite clearly last year when tensions were quite high and the Chinese had massed troops on the border ready to "secure" nuclear facilities if the peninsula should fall into war.

Surely would it not be better justice if the criminal serves the rest of their life in prison? the death penalty is too final and in some cases, the wrong person could be convicted and put to death. The best penalty would be life imprisonment and hard labour every day.

Why exactly is the west doing the equivalent of throwing its toys out of the pram? if the people want it then why object to it, when there is an openly fascist party in power, I can fully understand them wanting to break away.

As an Irishman I'm very happy to see that the attitudes of the people of Ireland have moved on and that we can hold visits like this in high regard, I'll be excited for the shared future Great Britain and Ireland will share in the coming years.

How about renaming it to "Japan Korea see" since it separates this two countries. I guess this would be to logical and to friendly solution and Humans do not like the logic and do not like to be friendly.

How about we retain the name already in use. If the Japanese Isles were not there it would just be the Pacific Ocean so Japan is the factor there and why rightly it is named the Sea of Japan now and I suspect in the future also.

https://www.swaen.com/Korea-East-Sea.html As you can see there are 28 authentic European-made maps dating as far back to the 17th century for sale on this site that describe it as "Sea of Corea", etc.

But the number of maps dating to that time that list it as the East Sea is few and far between, Sea of Japan or Japan Sea is the most dominant name amongst maps from that period, and these days, British Admiralty Charts make no mention of the East Sea on any of their listings.

Absolutely stupid behavior on the part of Korea, you don't see the UK complaining about the Irish Sea or the french complaining about the English Channel, it's utter nonsense...

Being done with the understanding of the governing administrations?

But the problem is that the majority of the people in Crimea wish to be a part of Russia, and the current government in Kiev is the result of a Coup d'état so I don't think unelected officials in Kiev should be any more legitimate than elected MP's in the parliament of Crimea.

First off, this poster is quite ridiculous, I'm not sure what message it's trying to convey, I think that educating people properly on cannabis, it's dangerous elements and potential benefits, we'll be much better off but in my opinion, we don't need more drugs on the market, Tobacco and Alcohol are bad enough as it is.
