Most posters here haven't matured out of the "angsty teenager" stage. All I hear is a bunch of crybabies whining about about Japan being broke, rich people being to blame for everything, and third-world China being the future.

Title should change the word "will" to "ability". Over a decade of US involvement and the Iraqi military is still incapable.

ISIS is destroying in months what took the ass-backwards US to "achieve". If you call trillions of dollars and around 10,000 American lives wasted an achievement, that is.

bass4funk, I'll some it up in one sentence: We are the largest debtor nation. Regardless of whether anyone feels sorry for ISIS' victims is not the point. The US doesn't have the money for socialized healthcare, a good education system, or new infrastructure, but people such as your self want to waste money on freedom, schools, hospitals, roads, and who knows what else for foreigners. To Hell with the rest of the world. America needs to concentrate on Americans.

wtfjapan, yep America is mighty and invincible. That's why we lost in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. What good is a massive military at the expense of our own people?

Who really cares? The reason America is so despised and hated is that we stick our noses in where we don't belong. Let Russia or whoever dictate their own foreign policy, and please do it without Clinton, Bush, Obama, or whatever human-rubber stamp giving speeches on how America isn't the next Greece (it is) and how everything is fine economically, socially, and culturally.

Japan is still the world's biggest creditor 24-years running. 32 of America's states are now insolvent.

It's time for us Americans to mind our own business. Doing anything else just wastes U.S. money and lives.

Pearl Harbor wasn't cowardly, Frungy. Japan just couldn't just sit back and let itself be attacked. Ww2 is now irrelevant. Both Japan and Germany now outrank the U.S. in many key factors, and America's empire seems to be winding down.

Global warming may be natural. During the Middle Ages both Asia and Europe saw major climate shifts. Not too many SUBs or coal-fired power plants in those days.

Why would the richest country on Earth (Japan), need to devalue its currency? You people need to learn to think outside the box and stop believing in Libertarian nonsense.

Yeah, Japan is the world's largest creditor, but is broke. Libertarians don't live in reality. If you don't like Japan then "gaijin go home".

An "official" debt of a quadrillion yen, but external assets of 945 trillion yen (not counting domestic assets) means Japan has some of the best finances of any country.
