 If they had the weaponry to take out all of South Korea, Japan, and the continental US, they would've done it already and pillaged for the resources they badly need and have been denied through sanctions. Kim is only postering, hoping no one pulls back the curtain back on him in front of his own public.

Considering Kim has threatened on many occasions to nuke the USA I think Trump and the Americans have every right to stop him building himself an ICBM delivery system. And the sooner the better. 

> Please kindly inform us once you've finished signing up at the army recruiting center to go stop kim.

It's the war mongering nation right on que. Someone needs to call the pentagon and notify them that with nuclear weaponry involved, the outcome will not lead to regime change. Did the cold war teach nothing? Must america continue to heave and ho adinfinitum, bringing destruction and despair in its wake all to prove relevance in today's world? Where's the uns outcry? Oh I'm sorry. My mistake. You can't bite the hand that pays your salary!!

Enough peddling of drivel. It's more about mooching off the Germany economy than culture!!

Oh. Didn't you get the memo? This scuffle bodes well with the kaigi thugs. I'm pretty sure she's foaming at the mouth for an outbreak to occur!!

It's tantamount to endorsing a limit that could cause overwork deaths,

To paraphrase one smart fella, welcome to japan. The place where easy things are hard and complicated things are impossible.

Posted in: Japan could send SDF to rescue nationals in Korean crisis: Inada See in context

I see, right on the mark, most if not all people have pushed the school scandal to the history stack. I don't quite understand why anyone still falls for the boogeyman under the covers syndrome!!

This 'threat' serves to promote how macho dear leader is making everyone feel protected all the while not realizing that the long con is to swiftly bring the constitution revision to fruition. What is pathetic is most of the people most surely will succumb to this age old tactic. The student is finally becoming the master.

This again huh? Is logic really lost on these egg heads? If one earns less, they can't buy more if cost is too high. Naturally they'll be frugal.

The constant expectation of the economy to improve while not improving actual lives is akin to one asking the sky for help when faced with an impending doom. It's hollow!!
