Funny when SK fired warning shots at Russian and Chinese incursion into their airspace, their supporters credited their fast reaction, but Japanese boats use a water gun and all of a sudden it's controversial? Get outta here pot...

Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono said he and U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper talked over the phone Thursday and agreed that cooperation among the two countries and South Korea is important in dealing with matters related to North Korea's latest missile test.
As it should be with grown adult nations...
Following the missile launch, South Korea asked Japan for information based on GSOMIA, but not vice versa, South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong Doo has said.

This is beyond hilarious, SK made request to Japan to share information of missile launch through GSOMIA while it is still in effect till end of November.
LoL, but but but "Japan was suppose to find out through CNN"

Unlike Japan, Korea has build a truly independent missile defense network independent of the US Missile Defense.
Yes, that worked great when NK shelled their island not too long ago...
apparently successfully detected
Article didnt say if it was tracked, just detected...
6 ( +7 / -1 )
This is basically fear mongering at it's best. Really doesn't matter if it can be detected or not, these short range ballistic missiles were designed to avoid detection, that's why they are building these. Korea does have the advantage of having THAAD, but deployment in Japan is coming soon.
And FYI if one does land in Japan, it will be WW3 in that region...

And even the boycott of Uniqlo has a knock-on effect, because the firm is managed in South Korea by a joint venture in which South Korea's Lotte holds a 49 percent stake.
LoL didnt know this. And what happened to Mr. Japanese companies will all run off to SK?
And didn't they decide to get rid of the banners or did SK put them back up in the middle of the night?

So who here said Japanese ppl wouldn't be attacked in Korea? That the travel warning was a knee jerk reaction? Or maybe the Japanese deserved it due to ww2? Well it just happened...time to boycott SK...

SK pretty much played all their cards at this point and Japan hasn't really done anything. Just wait till Japan actually retaliates, it wont be pretty...

imposing export curbs last month
It's news sites like this and the general SK media that fan the very tiny flames of this when it first happened. This is not an export curb in any way, just regular business and how Japan dealt with the majority of its trading partners...

Shin Ra for your information Kursk was raised 1 year after disaster.
Not talking about the Kursk, The Komsomolets is still at the bottom of the ocean. This just shows how poor their track record is with these nuclear submarines...
0 ( +0 / -0 )
Are people really using Russia and China as the moral high ground in the pollution debate? Russia has at least one nuclear submarine sitting at the bottom of the ocean near Norway that is leaking radiation IN the ocean. They also recently had an accident releasing radiation into the air. And China has so much pollution that at one point it blew over to Japan. Shining examples of nuclear and pollution safety...

Looks like he apologized to me, but since he didn't say it in the way I thought he should say it, it doesn't count right? RIGHT???

This is a drop in the bucket compared to what they lost to the chinese via the trade war...and no story about trump mocking abe and moon???

At least the Japanese response is measured and not a knee jerk response like SK, whaaa we are going to boycott japanese good, whaaa we are going to boycott japan, whaaa we will refuse to fuel up cars made by japanese companies, whaaa we are gonna burn and kick your flag in front of your embassy, and whaaa we are going to boycott your olympics...supportjapannothate

South Korea currently divides its trade partners into two groups while managing the exports of sensitive materials that can be used both for civilian and military purposes.
I guess they didnt want to report the story about the third group SK was proposing for Japan that was below the two groups they currently have just to spite them.

LoL something about SK having more freedom of speech... only in some alternate universe and they think there will be a smooth transition to a United Korea...I want what they are smoking cause it must be potent...

"Those who saw Korean conscript laborers in their emaciated condition forced to work in Japanese mines and companies have died or are very, very old," he said.
And it should have ended with this. Most everyone involved have died and the ones who were responsible were killed. Don't really understand for this need for constant apology.

Again, if they just spent the 200 or so million to pay their people like they agreed upon so everyone can at least try to move on, then we wouldn't be talking about this. But instead, they would rather spend 6 billion and several years to undue the damage that they themselves caused. Makes no sense...

Another added: "Japanese tourists are not our enemies."
LoL how hypocritical...we can boycott them, but we will happily provide our services to the enemy for their money. If they had any self respect, they would be hanging the signs in their own store fronts in a unified form of protest!

Maybe if they put those resources to compensating their people, it would cost a whole lot less and end decades of animosity and distrust between the two countries. Instead they are going to spend a few billion to cover three products that are in the few hundreds of thousands over less than 200 million in compensation. This isn't even a tariff by the way. Yup makes sense to me! This doesn't even address where technology will be 6-10 years from now when they get everything up to speed. But good luck, don't let the door close on your way out of the modern world and into the rule of the Kims...

Time to get out of SK. Close down the embassies, and relocate all businesses. And I would definitely reconsider going to SK if you are Japanese. They will be targeting you next.

Moon said Japan's decision was retaliation against South Korean court rulings that called for Japanese companies to compensate South Korean plaintiffs for their forced labor during World War II.
Yes the Japanese officials are there to support and protect their companies from unjust legal decisions. They have ZERO obligations towards SK.
