A guy with a fourth-grader mentality to be the president of the US? The US has seriously declined since I studied there in 1999. Is everything he says as inaccurate as what he said about Japan?

Nobody wants someone with a fourth-grader name calling mentality as president of the US, with his little fingers on the botton that launches the atom bombs all over the earth to prove he is a big guy.

The news tonight showed kids using their Pokemon Go game in the Hiroshim Peace Park. The Hiroshima Atomic Dome was in the background. They say that is not appropriate for such a place. On the other hand, they did get kids to go to the Peace Park. Now a Russian holds the world record for the number of monsters captured. I'm not a gamer, so what?

So France lets a guy who has tried to get terrorist training go, and Japan let a guy who says he will kill disabled people go.

What a lame brain idea to put these Pokemon characters in a game where you are walking around with your nose burried in your "smart" phone. That is an accident waiting to happen. Or accidents.

What I don't like is that there can be no restrictions on capital flows. So next time, Wall Street can cause a global depression rather than a great recession in the US and Europe.

@Christopher Glen, there are several in their 30s, but nobody convincing.
Well, i guess he will get my vote. That scandal seems to have gone away.

It seems that Japanese police have so little experience with crime that they under-react. In contrast, in the US, there is so much crime that police shoot first then ask questions. Where is the middle?

I just watched CNN. At the end of the coverage of this story, the announcer said "this is the largest massacre in Japan since WWII". Is he saying WWII was a "massacre"? OK, a little off topic, but he should chose is words more carefully. You know what the far right would say if they saw this. This would be politicized.

You don't "renegotiate" the security "deal" with Japan. There was no "deal" or "negotiation". There was this thing called "WWII" that Japan had just lost. The US instituted, not negotiated, the post-war regime. I know WWII was long ago and Trump may not know about it. And there is a reason that Japan only spends 1% of GDP on defense. It is to show Asia that Japan will not try to conquer it again. It also is reflection of this thing called "WWII". Also, I'm pretty sure that Saddam was not killing "terrorists", but anyone opposed to his regime.

The withdrawal of the US military from Japan does not matter to Japan's defence. The US military has never been here to protect Japan. It has only been here to reassure Asia that Japan is under its thumb and will never try to conquer Asia again. Are there actually tens of thousands of fighting troops here?

And teachers should explain that the students will be drafted to die overseas in US caused wars. Reality bites.

Citing Trump’s threat to withdraw U.S. forces from Japan
Many Japanese hope that this is a "promise" rather than a "threat".

Well, at least in his convention speech, Trump this time did not mention Japan in connection with countries ruining the US. He only mentioned S. Korea and China. I wonder what caused the change of heart?
gokai_wo_manekuJul. 22, 2016 - 03:42PM JST
It was difficult to follow what he was saying, but at least Trump didn't mention Japan. He only mentioned trade issues with S. Korea and China. Why the change of heart about Japan?
