Nah, I think we can get our rice cookers elsewhere. All that needs to be said to Japan is that we will absolutely not aid them in defending an attack they instigated.

We are the world police. America has got this. China better watch out before Obama sends his drones over there.

I would agree if we were not bound by a treaty to help Japan.

"Meanwhile, anti-Japan protests continued in Beijing for the seventh straight day on Monday, but were much smaller than the mass demonstrations — some violent — that took place across China over the weekend."

Anyone know how common anti Japan protests are against Japan in China? I would imagine they are semi common (for a good reason - they hate Japan over things from 100 years ago still) and wonder how much the Chinese government cares about protests against their biggest "enemy" in the world.

I'm curious to see how Japan responds.

Japan's websites have been hacked numerous times since Nationalizing the islands.

Not a bad idea. Earn your keep, if you're between 18-35 and on any gov assistance, you serve 4 years on suicide missions. Sounds like a plan.

What empirical data are you talking about sir?

What part of the economy is getting better so says this data?

I keep harping on it, but for those of you who feel that fuel prices are an indication of the poor state of the economy, consider this:

Oil production in lower 48 reaches a 23-year high in July, while oil/gas jobs reach a 24-year high

Quote:
A recent Bank of America/Merrill Lynch report estimates that the economic benefits to the U.S. economy from the booming domestic energy production, especially from the surging output of unconventional shale gas and oil, are approaching $1 billion per day.

How about this, conscription is mandatory if you graduate high school with anything less than a 3.5 GPA.

It would be a sad day if our military ignored merit when selecting proper placement for its stock.
