Yes, yes, yes. Hurray. Maybe now some of the USA military can leave on their Ospreys, permanently, and save just a small amount of money for the USA taxpayers.

Now Korea and Japan have declared air defense zones. Exactly how are they going to defend? Ospreys? All of this is just another reason why the USA thinks it has to spend, spend, spend to "protect" them. What a waste of USA taxpayers' money.

What a fool. What did he expect, a hero's welcome? Now we must wait to see how much the USA government will waste to get this guy out of a country that he KNEW was a on the no-fly to list. Everyone can feel sorry for his family, but American tourist have to stop being so foolish.

When a person asks for a USA passport, he/she must sign that he or she will not travel to NK or any other country on a NO FLY list. The prisoner is a fool for going there and a pawn for NK publicity. Just imagine how much USA $ it will cost to get this Sad Sack out of NK. There is no money in the USA budget for children's needs in the USA, but plenty of money for "the game." Sickening.

Is this article referring to the Straits of Malaysia? It is between the two parts. No Sea of Japan, no South China Sea!

The USA government wants its rice growers to have more access to Japan by encouraging the end of price supports in Japan. It is ironic because the USA government has price supports for peanut growers such as former President Jimmy Carter.

Finally, the right choice for Afghanistan and many other countries, including Japan. DIY Forces.

DYI. Change the Constitution. "The best defense is a strong offense." The USA is broke financially, and China knows it. Step up, Japan.

STOP subsidizing foreign countries except in emergency situations such as the Philippines. There is absolutely nothing wrong with saying "Japan First" and "Buy Japanese." Fly the flag, and when people want to refer to the 20th century, just say, "History cannot be changed."

Especially in Okinawa! Get the USA military out of there and replace it with a Las Vegas atmosphere. 12 months a year of paradise. Easy access for the neighbors. Tremendous income for the government.

Get over it Europe, get over it world. Japan spies on the USA, so what? Let it go, move on, and accept the fact that the USA has better spy technology.

"Can't live with 'em, and can't live without 'em." Sunday morning TV programs in the USA point the finger at the family as the cause of the majority of problems in the area. Interesting observation?

"Don't bite the hand that feeds you." Europe can't afford the loss of US income just as Israel cannot afford to lose it the income. Just pretend to be upset, and it will all go away. Japan knows it, and goes about its business. It is a fair trade.

So that they can learn something new about spying? Why isn't Putin complaining? Because he expects it and knows that all countries are involved in spying on each other. He is the master of it.
