Skip to comments.JAPAN RAISING TERROR THREAT LEVEL TONIGHT (ON GUARD AGAINST N.KOREAN AGENTS AFTER U.N. ACTION)
Posted on 10/11/2006 7:11:54 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo
Story in Japanese at the link above.
By the Government of Japan, in response to North Korea's threat earlier today to treat 'severe sanctions' as a defacto 'declaration of war'.
You know what my brother who was station in South Korea told me once that if you get South Korea army guy drunk enough you get real story on how Kim yong Sun really died you know Chia Pet daddy
You have get them really drunk
I will cheer any such actions.
Their Navy is first rate. I don't know much about their army, it's small...but is it modern and can they fight?
They have made similiar threats in the past that gave the clear impressions that they were talking about wreaking havoc via sabotage and acts of WMD terror within Japan. They said that they could respond to threat nations to them not necessarily by missile attacks, but in equally potent ways.
American In Tokyo is my friend, reference a post where gain the inference otherwise.
Quantum leaps of discernment are not necessarily rooted in physics, knowledge or physics.
The fact is we had a few guys that had to go down, and there was no easy way to do it. As soon as either Kim or monkeyboy in Iran is gone this will get ALOT easier.
I agree we're headed for war with Iran - so who do you think will join with them other than North Korea?
Could be just as simple as that. But you know, as FUBAR as the entire world is right now, I'm just not sure there's anything other than Whack-a-Mole going on in the Whitehouse!
How in the world could you devise an overall strategy (or doctrine) that could coherently address all the chaos that's going on now?
I for one, wouldn't want my nephew growing up to be President these days!
Unless they were born and raised in Japan as a zainichichosenjin, then they are liable to be discovered once they talk.
It starts with the very Korean accented "arigado-gojaimaz" way of saying thank you that alerts a true Japanese they are not Japanese. When I heard spy Kim Hyun Hi (the DPRK female bomber of the KAL flight sent out by Kim Jong il to do the deed) after she was captured and interviewed for Japanese TV, I can see how she maybe passed herself off as a Japanese when caught be Dubai authorities, but if I were in that room I would have known she was Korean in five seconds. It was when the Japanese authorities arrived to talk to her that they got it right away. Very very think Korean accent. Other than that, physical characteristics can be about the same. Give them a "Hello Kitty" bag and it will work for awhile I suppose.
Gladiator was a good movie.
This often comes out, with or without Cass Beer.
so who do you think will join with them other than North Korea?
Good question...I would think Chavez will shut all supply to US once we engage Iran. Wouldn't surprise me if there are Hezbollah terrorists stationed in Cuba due to Chavez's work with the Iranian nut. Syria will get involved.
This is very worrisome. Thank you for posting on it.
Better than "Spartacus".
You said -- "I thought you were asking what China is trying to prevent concerning the Japanese military. The answer to that question is nuclear weapons."
Well, I thought China was working on preventing Japan's "build-up" -- several steps *before* ever getting to nuclear weapons. I thought China was thinking in more conventional terms (not nuclear weapons). At least that is what it appears to me.
I think, not only *China* but also the *U.S.* would be opposed to Japan having nuclear weapons -- and thus -- that would probably *never* happen.
Well that's a pleasant development. /s
Everything I've read has been about preventing Japan's need for their own nuclear arsenal. That also goes for S.Korea and even Taiwan.
Has a nice looking golf course... :-)
ROFL I find that very funny story LOLOLOL
They would be yelling "Wuidehanryongdoja KimJong il dongji, Manse!" all the way it would seem--as impassioned as an "Allah Ahkbar!" Not out of the question.
I know of no air marshal system onboard Japanese aircraft and it's anybody's guess how soon the Air Self Defense Forces could scramble.
The Japanese are essentially not that good at crisis management, something big and entirely unexpected, which is very worrisome.
Am glad he's your friend, too.
Tell us the story your brother told you...
I try this from memory he told this to his friend when he stationed in South Korea for few months he talk to South Korea soldier who was loaded when he met him
Said that Chia Pet may have cause the death of his Papa Kim Yong Sun by having argument with the father which Father has massive heart attack
I prefer to call him ( KIM GONE ILL ).
Yeah, the two countries have a long history of pi$$ing on each other, kind of like England and France.
You said -- "Everything I've read has been about preventing Japan's need for their own nuclear arsenal."
Do you really think the U.S. would "encourage" or even "allow" Japan to have (even) the *first bomb* in a nuclear arsenal?
The U.S. has a lot more influence over Japan than they do over North Korea. I don't think that would ever happen (just from the U.S. side of things...).
Do you think a European country will side with Iran? Which one? Seems Russia's a swing - they'll probably go with us...
Hey Prophet every Freeper has nickname for Kim Jong II i hear Little Kim
Kim Mentally Ill
Kim and Play
Join the club everybody has name on FR for Kim Jong 11
Hey guys check out this
... and with Big Ole' China breathing down Japan's neck, meantime. What you have speculated is entirely possible. "Old" Japan would be pulling together and taking this threat very seriously; do you happen to know how "new" Japan is taking the threat? New Japan, meaning, the "everything is Rock 'n' Roll" Japan? What is the mood of the "everyday" people; and not those in official capacity, pls?
I think China's military advancement will eventually force a nuclear deterrent (they're aggressively stealing US secrets and have built two Aegis destroyers) and the US will eventually approve of Japan acquiring a nuke if not sooner because of N.Korea.
Regime change in a handful of places, the old-fashioned way.
Monday, Rush Limbaugh interviewed me on Epicenter for the November issue of The Limbaugh Letter. For about 45 minutes, we discused how since taking office in 2000, former KGB chief-turned Russian President Vladimir Putin has built strong personal, political and military ties to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. Putin has sold Iran and North Korea billions of dollars worth of arms and even nuclear technology. He is arming America's worst enemies for war, and in so doing, Russia has joined the "Axis of Evil." Yet on this critical issue, official Washington seems to be in a true state of denial.
Good question...I'm not so sure Russia will side with us...the rapid expansion of NATO eastward has Russia disturbed...also notice how fussy they've been with Georgia the last two weeks. As far as European countries, I'm sure massive bribery like the "oil for food" scandal is happening even as we type.
** Good question...I would think Chavez will shut all supply to US once we engage Iran. Wouldn't surprise me if there are Hezbollah terrorists stationed in Cuba due to Chavez's work with the Iranian nut. Syria will get involved.**
From what I understand, both China and Russia have agreements with Iran to protect it. Therefore, if we attack Iran, we could be looking at a fight with both China and Russia.
If the truth were know, I wouldn't be surprised if NK is behaving as a puppet of China. Clinton not only helped North Korea to build nukes, but also sold highly advanced computer technology to China(not to mention technology that was stolen from Los Alamos and etc). That technology enabled China to point their long range nukes at our cities and God only knows what else.
We could easily see nukes flying around the globe from several directions, if we get into a battle with either North Korea or Iran. Prayers for President Bush to sort out this mess!!!
Thanks so much for the post. In times past a "congrats" might have been ARIGATAKU ZONJIRU SORO.
Well, Russia has plenty of oil, so cutting off ties with Iran wouldn't hurt them in that respect. They wanted to build some nuclear power plants in Iran and also had some arms deals with the country. Seeing as how Russian-made weapons (or rip-offs) were used by Hezbollah (who got them through Iran and Syria), they might be backing off any arms deals with Iran themselves. And with the whole NK thing going down, I don't see them pushing to sell plutonium and reactors like they might have in the past. There are plenty of other countries in the world that will buy weapons from them and plenty of other countries that need power. So, I'm not seeing Russia siding with Iran should anything big go down. My best bet? Turkey.
I thought that way too, until I read this:
It seems Pootypoot is a real two-faced scumbag. He's big buddies with the little Runt Bastid as well as the Iranian madman.
I wish I could recall where I read an article on the Bush military strategy. The Pentagon has guessed correctly in expanding NATO eastward while encircling Iran via Afghanistan, Iraq, plus a few other ...stans. The US has even contemplated the collapse of Mushariff's government in Pakistan. According to this article India will play a crucial role in engaging a collapsed Pakistan. Wouldn't surprise me if we are facing a regional war if the US initiates an attack on Iran.
Never mind, I see you've already been there.
It's enough to give one heartburn, isn't it?
Which movie is that from?
YEAH Alright Godzilla in da house
You've got a point with that one - Turkey would benefit from a breakup of Iraq - (an idea that reeks of Iranian strategy) ... Turkey would take the Kurds - and their oil fields - while Iran moved into Southern Iraq... Yep, Turkey could be onboard... for a piece of the pie.
The top is from Godzilla 2000. The middle is from Godzilla: Final Wars. And the last is from Gamera: Revenge of Iris.
Yes, it is...
