Did anyone think about dropping a carry-on on the head? Self defense force was needed, not the military, but common sense.

He needs to spend money solving problems in Japan. Yes, trade is what he is supposed to create, but it doesn't look like he accomplished that. He received a polite thank you, then shown the door after the yen was delivered. Did he get a lesson from his visit with President Obama?

SELF defense force means nothing can be done unless the infringement is in Japan's air, sea or land territory. Japan has to be attacked before it can defend itSELF. It is time to change the name to Japan Defense Force, then everything will be legal according to international law.

Everyone has a need to be needed. One should not give up the day job until a new position is secured, unless one is wealthy enough to survive without employment. The name may be on the short list for ambassador to Granada. The minimum qualification is a basic competency in Spanish.

Does jet fuel and lubrication float? Will it evaporate before it reaches land? Which way does the wind usually blow and which way is the current flowing?

Is this proposal counter productive? If Kim-boy suspects that these people are trying to leave, he orders execution. If they stay in NK, they risk execution for not paying attention to his absolutely boring speeches. Japan should have open borders to NK escapees regardless of their societal position there. The present system doesn't work, what does Japan have to lose by accepting these people. Japan is an island, not the USA, the escapees can't just disappear. However, if Japan is running scared because of the launches and testing, then there is no hope for Japan, and Kim-boy knows it. He may even take the chance, and the devastating results will..................

"Wow all these country's are turning on America now." How quickly they forget. The USA taxpayers have asked for many years that the USA military come home. What happens when China, NK, Iran et al threaten them, those countries run to the nearest USA embassy and ask for help. It seems impossible, but the Philippines could actually be vaporized by one misstep by NK or other nuclear powers. China probably will just sit back and watch everything crumble, then move in. The next USA presidential election is going to have an impact on this and similar problems. November 9, 2016, may be the next day after the election and it will bring major changes.

Let's see, assuming the ticket is non-refundable. The person doesn't show up, from the total take off weight of the plane, subtract 65 kilos of personal weight, subtract 15 kilos/bag (usually two), subtract 10 kilos in a well packed carry-on and laptop, and 5 kilos for extra clothing that could not fit in the check-in weight limit. Round it off to 120 kilos because the personal weight may be a little conservative. If 5 people are no-show, that is 600 kilos. What is the fuel savings for a flight from Korea to San Francisco? In addition to that, the flight attendants have 5 less people to contend with, especially if alcohol is free, line is shorter to the toilet after a meal, and maybe a better seat for the fast moving passenger after the seat belt light goes off. If an additional fee is imposed and there is a stand-by fee paid for extra baggage handling at the last moment, it really is a win-win for the airlines, and the passenger who has to really, really, go.

Anyone with so much free-time must not be working at a job. It looks like a great survey for someone to do. Go out on the street and ask the wandering players if they can name the prime minister. If they can, give that person 500 yen.

Zika is a minor problem when compared to the measles. Measles can cause more birth defects because it is spread faster than Zika and cannot be isolated if the carriers work at the airport. California passed a law requiring vaccinations for several disease before children can attend school. The next problem will be an old problem at airports - influenza. Public employees must have the vaccination or resign.

How long can this regime cry wolf? Apparently, as long as he wants because sanctions, money laundering, and other so called controls are useless! Hello, China, what are you going to do when something goes wrong with the flight and hits your trading partner? Turn your back and say stuff happens?

He may be giving the proverbial finger to the USA, but look who has its eyes on the property or at least the off-shore resources. Unless he has eyes in the back of his head, he is going to lead the country down the same path that Venezuela went - tyranny and bankruptcy.

Japan is broke. World financial experts know it, why doesn't he know it? It is the reason why negative interest rates exist. Stop spending taxpayer money in foreign countries just to improve image. Spend it on infrastructure, inexpensive birthing and child care, and jobs that non-college people will want to take. The USA's Yellen is considering. $20 trillion in debt and the government can't afford to provide clean drinking water in many states.

The USA invites as many students as possible to enroll in its post secondary system (community colleges and universities) then charges them outrageous "out of state fees" to go to school. The students receive the same instruction as resident students WITHOUT addition help. "Sink or swim" is the rule. When the students graduate, many are surprised to learn that their student visas have been terminated and they are sent home. These people, if allowed to stay in the USA, will find work at very high salaries and pay multiple amounts of income tax compared to others. Legal immigration and work for aliens is extremely important to the survival of the USA as well as Japan economy.

Geniuses. Everyone warned him that an increase in consumption tax mean a decrease in consumption. Taxing out of existence is not the solution. No economy means no taxes. What does it take to get these "leaders" of the G20 to understand that they can protect their jobs by increasing taxpayer satisfaction.

Maybe not! These "executed" people sometimes return to a lower position a few months later hidden away. If it was a public execution, post the pictures. After watching the terrible execution by ISIS on the internet, those interested can review it and the local media can censor it as needed.

Once again the question is asked: "Does my constitution cover me in a foreign country?" Apparently many citizens from various countries are surprised at the answer. NO. Don't try to go outside your borders without accepting that fact. Don't take the family outside the borders without accepting that fact. The constitution is not a travel insurance policy that a person can buy from an airline. Accept the risk=accept the consequences.
