Japan sure is showing some 'cojones' in this issue. This is definitely not your standard NK/SK soap opera playing out this time.

Something tells me....

Watch out.

Japan has a military? 0o

I thought their entire military consists of 14 guys with guns, a converted crop duster, and a pimped out toyota with some armor on the side...

aka, the japanese military is tiny...strictly self defense tiny since the end of WW2

Very nice.

I could say that I wish that China would test an ICBM on your island, that apparently has so little going for it that it has been referred to as being a place northwest of France.

But I won't do that.

It isn't diplomatic or moral. It would be so funny though.


Funny? to see 5000 + sailors dead or wounded?

China doesn't own us, unlike you. They could use the Midwest as a testing range to repay the $13 Trillion you owe them.
So if you had to pick which thing you were going to destroy...

Would it be something that you 'owned' or something you didn't?

Japan is allowed to have a "limited" navy and military after the surrender in WW2. knowing how they are now, as one of our stronger allies, I would like to see that lifted so we don’t have to have so many of are own troops and equipment over there to protect them.

glad to see we can join with our allies and practice real life war games so we can always be ready for the un known.

I’m not advocating war, just happy we are showing our might to NK. Peace through strength and numbers.

Wait, if loaning money equals ownership then doesn't the U.S. own your country, by your own reasoning? I mean we did just bail you guys out. So if China owns us, we own you, and therefore China owns you as well. Right? I'm just using your logic.

Why do you advocated the death of 5,000 men? Why do you hate America, UK’s strongest allies? What has America done to you? You make it sound like we killed your dog or something!

34,000 Japanese military personel with 40 warships and 250 aircraft1 0,000 US counterparts with 20 warships and 150 aircraft and probably a few thousand SK troops...


This isn't a drill.. THIS IS WAR.

Sick and beyond stupid. You are wishing the deaths of thousands of innocent people and the start of a major war between nuclear powers which would lead to MAJOR death around the world and MAJOR destructon to the planet ... all because you have filled your head with baseless and ignorant anti-american hate. :shk:

That's not enough to be considered war. When I was in the Army we had war games with 30,000+ people and assets (tanks, etc). When I was stationed in Japan we didn't have them that big because we don't have a whole lotta' troops there, but we still had joint exercises.

It makes sense to have a larger drill over there. Blow the cobwebs and dust out of everything and make sure it's all running very, very well. Considering how unstable North Korea is ... the exercise is long overdue. Considering what the wikileaks documents say, China isn't too thrilled with North Korea and probably secretly don't mind us all flexing our muscles to help keep N. Korea in check.

Well I hate to say it but he/she has every right to say what they want to about us and our military as well as our country. However, luckily a thought as selfish as his/hers can only be returned with the same amount of malice and hate through natural laws. So lets smile and wish the best for all of us. It's all we can do.

I don't know where you get the idea that you bailed the UK out, since we have not received IMF or any loans. You can scrap that idea right there.

- You funded and armed terrorists in the UK for 40 years
- You blackmailed us out of seeking oil and commerce in the Suez - exactly what you are doing today
- Your president sent back a statue given as a sign of friendship
- You seek the extradition of a mentally handicapped man - and publicly called for him to fry
- You caused the economic flop of 2008

Who needs enemies when we have allies like you?

Really? So we never bailed out Barclays, or any other EU companies? You do live in a country that is part of the EU, so essentially we did indeed bail you out. We could have let your banking system fail.

I am glad you don't represent the majority in your country.
