The United States Armed Forces that are stationed in Japan. Under the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan, the United States is obliged to defend Japan in close cooperation with the Japan Self-Defense Forces for maritime defense, ballistic missile defense, domestic air control, communications security (COMSEC), and disaster response operations.
Also, following that logic, why isn't Poland threatening war against Germany?

I imagine someone ought to mention the fact that the US wouldn't have been in Korea, ordering airstrikes to keep from being over-run and killed to a person if North Korea had not first invaded it's Southern neighbor.
The US not only had nothing to do with that, history records the Central Intelligence Agency (a contradiction in terms to set the standard by) was telling the President that North Korea had no ability OR intention of military attack on the Republic Of Korea mere weeks before they did, in fact, invade and overrun them.
History seems to repeat itself like a bad movie. Never the good parts, either. Just the real crappy ones.

The media claim that North Korea is trying to obtain and use weapons of mass destruction.
NK admits they are trying to obtain and use weapons of mass destruction.
I don't want to see another war with NK or any other country but facts are facts.edit on 13-4-2013 by billy565 because: (no reason given)
