So if Kishida was to throw in the towel and resigned completely as prime Minister who would take his place ?
Even if he would consider it, Biden would not give his consent. He will stay on.

Putin is still fighting his brother country for almost 2 years now, and starting to look less and less like a villain. I guess two years from now, Israel will still be fighting Palestinians, and be regarded as heroes. Seems like the way to go nowadays is to invade your neighbor. No one will care, or make an effort to stop you...

Jill and I are praying for the families and friends who lost a loved one in this terrible accident.
It is sad that these young people lost their lives. Let's just hope that there is no crash over central Tokyo, costing more precious lives. It is too late to save these 8 victims, but it is not too late to save the lives risked by future accidents. So Biden, stop the violating flights over Tokyo!

Forced evacuations with nowhere safe to go is war crimes
And, unless the civilized world recognize this fact, and stops Israel, this is going to create tensions and hate that will last for a centuries, and devastate this region of the planet...

U.S. is tired of their authority being questioned?
is Red Sea part of USA already?
Many believe that (and I mean that as a fact, there are people that truly believe that the Earth belongs to U.S.).

The same story keeps repeating. And no one does anything about it! Because they don't care?
alleged inappropriate treatment that led to the death of a detained man
To put things in perspective, this is the exact same line from an earlier article here about the death of a hostage held by Hamas. Surely, Japan can be better then them?

step up efforts to realize an early summit meeting
So, still discussing the possibility of taking the first step towards making an effort... It is a long path before the actual effort, and much preparation, so keep up the good work, and you will soon be one step closer to making an effort!

Japan has been under US military occupation since the end of WW2.
But in return, Japan didn't get split, like Korea and Germany, into North/South, East/West. Oh, wait, what about Okinawa? Well, a small piece got split off from Japan...

Prostitition was not illegal under Japanese Law during the time period that the Comfort Women System existed. And Korea was part of Japan 1910-1945 under Japanese jurisdiction.
South Korea did not exist until 1948. To claim that the CW system was illegal or unlawful under South Korean Laws is defective.
That's a darn good argument, and if SK sues Japan, than most countries can sue most countries for what happened during the war. Which might not be much consolation for those who suffered, though.

Hamas killing civilians is justified then you should have no problem with Israel killing civilians.
That makes both sides terrorists, it seems to me...

Israel will continue its war against Hamas, even if a temporary cease-fire is reached
So, what is the news? Israel will never stop it's war against Hamas, even it they wipe out all of Gaza. If there are no living left, they will fight the ghosts (and convince the world of the sanity of it).

whether the North Korean satellite actually performs reconnaissance functions
Probably not. The goal was to put a satellite into orbit, so congratulations on the technical progression. Now, if people could stop this war mongering nonsense, North Korea could build a domestic industry, and start cooperate with its neighbors.

We know what this is all about. Does anyone really care about North Korean satellites, that they even announce in advance? No! So, then what is this all about? Triggering WW3! Which we all know is the reason for fueling a 3-front conflict, in Ukraine, Gaza, and East Asia.

What does this have to do with Israel? What's the connection?
If it is a Japanese vessel, I assume Japan would know about it, without being told by Israel? So, the connection is... making Japan pro-Israel, and anti-Iran.

Israel thinks killing everything in Gaza will end the conflict is extremely naive
This is obviously not what Israel thinks, and not their goal.

Israel has barred entry of fuel since the start of the war
An extended blackout means an extended suspension of our humanitarian operations in the Gaza Strip
That seems quite deliberate.

So, we had a drill to prepare for a North Korean attack, followed by this drill to prepare for a Chinese attack. Next up would be a drill to prepare for a Russian attack. But after that? What if? An attack by South Korea, Taiwan or U.S. are not likely, but are they guaranteed to never ever happen? Shouldn't we not prepare for that as well?

the prime minister's annual salary is expected to be 40.61 million yen
That would be USD 268,470.68 at the current rate. That would barely make it for the top 10% income tier in US, at that age bracket. An upper class income, but not by a big margin.

"18-year-old recruit fatally shot two instructors and injured another"
Maybe he didn't like the instructors.
According to previous reports, he had a grudge towards one instructor, and the other victims were collateral damage.
