Never had that problem either at work around town the last 20 years I carried either a government or personally-owned handgun. He must need some more training...

I don’t understand what you are saying. Are you saying we should allow North Korea to threaten its neighbors and increase its military capabilities? I think that would be bad for everyone around. We should take a stand against the incredible evil in North Korea.

As someone who served almost 3 years alongside the Koku Jietai, I thought it was very nice. I’m sure there are lots of folks who never sacrificed for their country, or served their country in uniform or fought in war that will disagree with me.

Jimizo, let me address your question in a direct way....President Trump should not be name calling, however he is using the same type of language that the murderous regime in North Korea is using. He hopes that he will make them understand that they will be defeated in a spectacular if follow through with going to war with peaceful nations. Should we continue to let the Murderous regime in North Korea increase their destructive capabilities, or deal with them now? To cower and let them be increase their destructive power will not help the North Korean people or anyone else around them.

He is merely using the same language that the North Korean Dictatorship has been using. Has anything happened since North Korea was using the same type of language the last 10 or so years? I think not. Please don't forget North Korea is a murderous regime that has starved millions of its citizens and illegally pursued nuclear weapons in violation of international law and numerous United Nations sanctions. While you can criticize your country, to do so in North Korea, it invites a fun filled trip to a concentration camp, not only for your, but your children, your parents and your grand parents for the rest of your natural lives.

Again, you are demonstrating personal attacks and not how your position on a particular issue is superior and try to sway people to you side. Please quit with the angry posts and try to be positive and rational about the issues at hand.

It makes me sad that all of you make personal attacks on my president. If you are trying to convince people sitting on the fence that your view the present issue is superior, you will get nowhere with your personal attacks. Try to positively debate the difference of your position and you may have a chance at swaying those that are undecided. Continue down you present path with personal attacks against President Trump and you will only reinforce those that agree with you and anger those that disagree with you.

Unfortunately Guam doesn't have the death penalty, unlike 32 of the 50 states in the United States...

Israel is constantly attacked by people that do not value human life and who hide their weapons next to civilians. You should rather criticize Hamas for deliberately attacking civilians, not Israel for taking out the rocket launchers that Hamas conveniently places next to civilians, which is against the Geneva Conventions, Protocol I, Article 51.

Too bad you can't carry a handgun for self defense in this country like you can in America. That would have evened the odds for this lady.

funny car, you need the American bases to prevent China from taking over more territory. It doesn't stop with China declaring an ADIZ over the Senkaku Islands. Didn't China recently start rhetoric that they want Okinawa also? I know most of the naysayers hate to admit it, but the only thing stopping them from taking the Senkakus and Okinawa is America..

A lot of countries did things like that back then. The point is that it was done and later America stopping developing biological weapons and later destroyed it's stockpiles. There are other countries that are not as open to admit questionable things and try to make things better.
Sorry that you don't like the Americans being in Okinawa. There are lots of people in the Philippines that survived the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan due to our Airmen, Marines... and the V-22 Osprey being so closeby.

Shimosueyoshi, the arms race started years ago as China has been adding over 10% to their defense expenditures almost every year since 1999. I don't think Japan has been anywhere close to that.

We already have 20,000 guns laws on the books and the over 100 million gun owners in America have never hurt anyone with their guns. We don't need anymore laws, but I do agree that more should be done about mental health issues.

Let's get the discussion back on track and not dwell on which country has more child abductions. It would be nice if Japan would ratify the Hague Convention follow international norms.

Matthew, www.gasbuddy.com shows the current prices of gasoline in the states. A quick check shows the lowest today is $3.08 per gallon in Anderson, South Carolina, and the highest is $4.09 in San Francisco, California. Using a conversion rate of 3.78 liters per gallon and 95 Yen to the Dollar, you get equivalent prices of 77 Yen to 102 Yen respectively per liter.

trinklets2, you are confusing the rigths combatants that are signatories to the Geneva Conventions. These pirates are not as they are unlawful combatants. They should not be afforded the rights that uniformed legal combatants receive. They are criminals and should be held to the some penalties afforded until Japanese Law.
