Despite the awful track record of betting on the wrong horse, the us continues the same way expecting different outcome, madness no? This will only push turkey further right. Especially seeing as erdog just became dictator supreme!!

then he should have done more to stop fighters from crossing into Syria and Iraq to join ISIS. Why hasn't Turkey done more to fight ISIS?

Its because those dessert thugs were inadvertently propped up by america and its mistresses saudi et al. Question to you is why america stood by and watched those vile crooks decimate a nation while plastering their propaganda online?

The issue here isn't with Indonesia but with abrahamic religions that simply can not and do not belong in this day and age. The faster they're eliminated, the faster humanity can discover its true self!!

Posted in: 90% of Japan's train operators will halt trains over N Korean missile alert See in context

So let me get this straight. If there's a huge possibility of getting hit why in the world is the most powerful army still here then? Doesn't that alone negate it's relevance? I thought Tokyo, which would be an ideal target, was surrounded by anti missile barrage!! This overreaction only affects the simpletons who unfortunately outnumber the logically sound. This will only go as far as souring public opinion slowly nudging towards that long sought for revision. Zeus help us all!!

Unlike Trump, Macron was actually chosen by the people

Different electoral systems. I'm still amused at how the alt left parrots this line as if it's supposed to change the outcome. Unhappy? Change the constitution then!!

 Constant criticism (lack of understanding of democracy?) of democratic institutions by rightwingers and authoritarian nationalists is not doing you guys a lot of good, maybe even further weakening your cause.

Same could be said of the alt left and it's embarrassing obsession with trump.

Well France like america had the choice between sewer rat your run of the mill garbage rat.

Posted in: Abe unveils plan to amend Constitution, put it into force in 2020 See in context

As we discuss the future shape of our country, education is an extremely important topic.

Double speak for 'grab them while they're young'

Abe, a strong proponent of constitutional amendments who returned as prime minister in December 2012, could serve as LDP president until September 2021 if he wins a third consecutive term as party leader in the next leadership vote in the fall of next year.

Yes dear leader, come back for another fourth, fifth even sixth term. Please continue making a mockery of the democratic process. Let your true colors come shining through!!

These problems were caused under Nationalistic Abe regime who hate individual freedom as "egotism" and want to crush present Constitution

Then please do more to sensitize. Let more people get involved and vote this dangerous party out for the next decade. So called abenomics has failed. The veil has been lifted. Nothing but smoke and mirrors to see. I honestly feel something is going to be pinned on NK anytime now!!

Every nation has a barbaric past, but I can guess who wrote all your history books.

But I'm Japanese and on my own side obviously.

And I too can guage where you got your history from. Well blind nationalism aside, there's a universal consensus on the atrocities attributed to japan.

Seems obvious Trump has a thing for dictators like Kim, Putin, Erdogan, and Duterte.

Hey, remember when we used to be the beacon of freedom and human rights in the world? Good times.

Sure. That was... Never. Since it's inception, the nation's been involved in one squamish or another in every continent on this globe.

Posted in: Abe says he will initiate debate on new constitution See in context

to show the people, with confidence, our vision for the future of our country and what an ideal constitution should look like

Oh dear leader, I see your true colors shining through. Right on cue. No bragging rights here but I called this over a month ago. I'll go one further, down the road there'll probably be an 'attack' that will push this from debate to defcon 1. This amazing country has officially certified its downward spiral.

Just because you like peace, doesn't mean you shouldn't arm yourself and protect yourself especially if you are in a dangerous situation. Not believing in fighting won't help you on the street if someone is running toward you to harm you.

This area is now one of the most dangerous in the world and Japan has countries like China and Russia and NK who threaten her.

I'm pretty sure China and Russia aren't being belligerent towards Japan. Do pray tell where you summized that. And of course any nation is entitled to arm however japan's case is rather unique due to its barbaric past as envisioned by the constitution enacted by their victors. There's no way anyone in this region will be ok with a belligerent japan especially since to this day, some atrocities like the unit 731 are conveniently glossed over and remain unacknowledged. Never gonna happen dude!!

Ha! Dear leaders government is not losing a beat. The crescendo is literally about to completely drown out the racist school scandal. The abes were involved? What are you mopping on about? I need call my local bunker dealership!!

Their neighborhoods are on the frontline of North Korea's dispute with America and if Pyongyang were to attack they would have just minutes to shelter from incoming missiles.

The cold war era rang. It needs the useless overreaction back!!

For a nation with state of the art anti missile tech, that's too much of an exaggeration. The NK track record is completely horrible. All this will do is incite nationalistic fervor that will inevitably lead to the demands for constitution revision. May the chips fall where they may!!

I always wonder, if natural citizens can succumb to such treatment, how would foreigners in the same situation fare?
