If New Zealand wants Arden, let them have her.
No idea on what her appeal is to the populace, but that’s what elections are supposed to be about.
Actually a bit pleasant to see an orderly and civilized one take place.

North Korea is really just a cloaked province of China. The Kim family exists because China allows it.
The US simply has to live with that fact. And that’s probably why NK now has ICBMs pointing that way.
Japan needs to be careful with swallowing the US bs on the matter. And understand more carefully that orbits change along with power structures.

By its very definition, an ICBM is intercontinental in nature. Not designed to target Japan, but for targets in other continents.
Japan has faced the same tactical missile threat for decades. An ICBM program does not add to that threat in an significant way.
The deeper issue is why North Korea is developing ICBMs in the first place. Since the perceived enemy is thousands of miles away across the Pacific, the ICBM program is a self defensive program. Not one of conquer and occupy.
Japan needs to stay out of it. Before it inflames the whole situation further and ends up becoming an bigger target for proven existing low range missiles.
Vassal states are expendable. And that’s all Japan is in this story.
