TOKYO -- As tensions on the Korean Peninsula reach new heights with Pyongyang's latest nuclear test, Japan is planning for a possible mass evacuation of the nearly 60,000 Japanese citizens currently living in or visiting South Korea.
"There is a possibility of further provocations," Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said at a Monday meeting with ruling coalition lawmakers. "We need to remain extremely vigilant and do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people."

This is smart. They also need to start mentioning changing their constitution to allow the development of nuclear weapons
I would suggest allowing Japan to develop their own nuclear weapons except that would violate survival rule #1:
Never allow someone you nuked to get nukes.
Well, there’s this one already posted.
they don’t have to get them, it just has to be believable. the Russians and the Chinese could put an end to this crap by lunchtime tomorrow, we just haven’t made it important enough to them
The US should send home all military dependents and recommend against travel to Korea right now. What a mess if hostilities start and their are 10s or 100s of thousands of US citizens in the war zone.
Over 200,000 US citizens plus nearly 40,000 service members in South Korea.
Because Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama didn’t do s**t, Trump has to clean up the mess. Japan and S Korea will pay a big price. We will
Probably lose many soldiers as well
Bush should have done it...Obama wasn’t capable. Trump is the man for the job.
Thank God we’re not depending on Hillary...she’d just send fatso a trillion or so of our money to get him to stop it until she’s out of office.
The liberals and MSM want a preemptive strike.
With 1 if not 2 Ohio Class Submarines in that region Japan does not really need a nuke.
They may be safer in SK than in Japan what with missiles flying over the island.
They need to be evacuated and the SK capital as well. The navy also needs to start moving the carrier soon or this is just another “next time “ moment.
As Tokyo has been targeted by the North Koreans, heading to Japan won’t necessarily make them safer.
Amen to that
Maybe Dennis Rodman needs to distract him with some b-balls.
Clinton gave missile technology to the Chi-Coms for campaign contributions.
Don’t say BJ didn’t do s**t.
and where did the NorKs get technology from?
Also Pakistan tested a nuke under Clinton’s watch.
Yes and unless they expect strictly air power and missileresponse, surprising that we have no carriers in the area right now.
