    What's all this about Japan? Look at China. If anyone's gearing up to invade Pearl Harbor, it's them.

    I doubt 85 billion in cuts is going to be their cue to attack, anyway. "Quick! Less than 10% in total military spending! FOR THE MOTHERLAND"

    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    I heard being pretentious and arrogant is a good way to enforce stereotypes.

    Why should we nuke them for surrendering?

    They've been flexing their nuclear program for years now. They hate America. They aren't able yet to carry a payload to Hawaii, but if they ever are I'd be worried if I was the governor of Hawaii as well since they're the closest high profile American target to Asia.
    This. They just set off a nuke a couple weeks ago to prove they have it, and over the last three months have launched at least two missiles they reported as "satellite launches" just to prove they could hit us. They haven't hit us with anything yet, but it's quite possible they could hit continental US now, let alone Hawaii.

    Sometimes I notice it, other times I don't. It depends if it's thinly veiled or not subtle. Sometimes I get tired of the hatred. But that's for another thread. I rather worry about North Korea.

    Pearl Harbor has probably higher military budget than the entirity of North Korea. And there is no country that has a real reason to attack the US, "we don't like you" isn't justification to begin with such a stupid move. (And that's not because your big ass military, but just there is no reason to burn money on something that would serve no real purpose).

    And to the poster I quoted, what motivation would NK have to attack the US? They know South Korea is probably big enough to beat the in a war, let alone all the NATO, and whoever got involved after a nuclear incident. I would say North Korean leadership aren't the smartest people, but they are not that stupid. (They are actually more like behind the times, like 100 years)

    This seriously has to be a joke, can't say I've seen/heard of anything in the news recently about pearl harbor. I have heard stuff about North Korea and their nuclear testing though, so it does seem to me like the US Government are prepping their people for yet another illegal war.

    Not so much hatred but its cringeworthy & irritating when someones like "we own you" or something. Feel free to say what you want though, I wouldnt report someone if they honestly thought I was a dick or whatever.

    the worst NK could ever do is fuck up south korea. and that would only give the US, japan, and possibly even china a reason to go in and fuck the shit out of them.

    i would think another terrorist attack for the things we are doing with drones and the like. can't really see anyone being up in arms over "globalization" when pretty much every country in the world does it.

    We have nothing to fear from Japan, they are currently one of our closest allies and them attacking us would destroy their economy completely. China's economy would also completely collapse if they attacked us. Sure they pretty much own us, but they still sell us most of what they make, and if they went to war with us they wouldn't be doing that anymore and the country would crash instantaneously.

    The only worry I would have is the off-chance of North Korea actually getting a working nuke into the air, and even then we have missile defense systems and North Korea is on China's leash.

    All I see is some politicians spouting and pouting because they aren't getting what they want.

    You wouldn't hear me say that. I don't think we own anyone aside from ourselves.

    I wish it wouldn't come to that but it may happen regardless.

    Sounds like a greedy person who wants to try to use paranoia to hold onto his money. The US has to lose something right now; you can't expect to get out of a debt hole without getting your hands dirty.
