Good points all. The JGSDF is nothing more than a national guard force. No doubt they see that Obama would be unwilling to come to their defense against Chinese or NK aggression. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Japan begin to massively expand their military over the next few years.
Are you freaking kidding me? In what universe does North Korea have the capability to invade Japan?
"The JGSDF is nothing more than a national guard force."
what on earth is this rubbish? are you serious?
"Are you freaking kidding me? In what universe does North Korea have the capability to invade Japan?"
As I understand it, NK has a massive and powerful military which is advancing in technology and capability, as rapidly as China is.

Throw their junk out on the street. Move your stuff in. Get some buddies to come over to scare the crap out of them. Dare them to call the cops. They’ll leave. Sounds like they need some good old barracks justice.

If you are referring to Larry Elder’s comments then you should do you homework and read up on the man. My guess is you have no idea who he is.

Nice job by the administration announcing to the media, yet again, SF operations. I’m sure those SOF guys really appreciate the news watching world knowing they are there. So much for “black ops”.
The green berets had already left the mountain before the news broke. Read the article.

I live in the SF Bay Area. Know a guy who drives the Golden Gate everyday en-route to his business in Sausalito. He saw a guy jump from the bridge one morning. It really disturbed him, the finality of it all. Very sad.

Sadly for the Black Community there are newer, more easily influenced minorities in the country and more coming every day. The Black Community is no longer relevant as voters. The Democrats no longer need them. They can protest all they want. The King is not listening. Call this racist or whatever. You will see it become the truth.
"I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the many great contributions of the Black community and their culture to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the influx of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, an example of all they have achieved by their enthusiasm for self-improvement through hard work and a self-reliant, can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation."

Human guinea pigs to harvest the virus for biological weapons. Wouldn’t put it past them.

Apparently they haven’t heard. The country is now full of people willing to work for that $8.25 an hour.

The House Republicans impeached Clinton over a lie about a bj. Thought that was a mistake. It did more harm to the country. The GOP leadership needs to grow a pair and start standing up to King O. In a way they put themselves in this position and now they need to find a way to fix it.

Oh yeah, you mean Jon Stuart Leibowitz? Yup that’s right. Self hater.

Maybe now blacks are waking up to the realization that they were used once again. Their voting demographic will become insignificant to the Libs with the rise of the Hispanic population. Since there is only so much public assistance to give out, er, I mean votes to buy Hispanics will be the Libs new people to pander to.

I’m not a Marine but a former Army Grunt. Still though the uniform didn’t look correct i.e. cover on indoors, medals, why is he in his blues? Looks pretty old even for a Sgt. Maj. You get to know the uniforms or just proper wear across branches so I have to agree with my brothers from the Corps that this guy is probably posing. That said, it was a great and selfless gesture on the part of the player and I hope he extends the offer in the future.

That would be very interesting. Not saying it wouldn’t or couldn’t happen but Iranians and Iraqi’s traditionally loathe each other.

@idarusskie you might want to check that. Guys from his unit are speaking out en mass about how he left his kit and weapon and walked off the OP looking to link up with the Talibs. A lot of good men died looking for this kid. That’s called desertion.

Happy days?? I suggest everyone on this site read up on Bergdahl and why he became a POW in the first place. He walked off his post! Left his kit and his weapon and headed right for the Taliban! He is a deserter! Many men died searching for this guy. Who knows what he told the Taliban about our troop movements, tactics, weaknesses etc. Guys that were there say that IED attacks and ambushes picked up after he was captured. When he gets back on U.S. soil he should be court martialed.

It’s Detroit. I used to live in that part of the world. There are areas of Detroit that are just as lawless and decaying as any third world country. Street lights don’t come on at night, fire and EMS won’t respond to emergencies w/o a police escort because they get shot at. Very sad for this man. There are just some parts of Detroit that you don’t go in to know matter what color your skin is.
Same in New Orleans, Memphis, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Newark, St.Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, northwest Indiana, Cincinnati, Cleveland, etc etc etc etc. They've taken and destroyed every downtown in this entire country!

They are much smarter and emotionally tied to us than we know.

A Russian aircraft carrier could sail right in to San Francisco Bay and nobody would care.
There isn't a russian aircraft carrier capable of steaming into SF Bay... or any other harbor for that matter. All of their stuff is broken... They claim one operatioanl aircraft carrier - the Kuznetsov, but many of their ships are docked, still flying an ensign (there-by remaining active) only so their skeleton crew can get paid.
