I don’t think Obama is going to get much traction in Japan.

That does just about put the nail in the coffin on those nice little Japanese islands, doesn’t it?

He ignored them when helping them would mean helping all. The 2011 earthquake tsunami and nuclear meltdown should have screamed for international help. Now the poison is still flowing into the pacific and japan remains independent and we will all pay for it.

When is he scheduled to take an up close look at Fukushima? Maybe we’ll see video of him playing with control rods with that goofy grin. Is Mooch on the Asian swing with him?

You know you are fighting a lost cause when Obama jumps on board and gives you a guarantee.

How about the four Japanese islands that Stalin took in 1945 and the Russians refuse to give back? (The Soviets/Russians claim that they are part of the Kurile Island chain.)
