Quote
Following his meeting with President Donald Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced that he will freeze the assets of 35 North Korean entities in response to the country’s escalating nuclear crisis.
“Now is not the time for dialogue,” Abe said on Monday. “It is time to apply the maximum pressure on North Korea. I completely agreed that Japan and the United States will intensify pressure to the highest level through every means in close cooperation with the international society to make Pyongyang change its policies.”
"Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government."  -Milton Friedman

Sadly, this begs the question, why it took this long? Other nations not being threatened by NK had joined the boycott, one would think Japan would have been a forerunner in this long ago.

The NORKS hate Japan worse than the US....they will never forget Japanese takeover and rape of their country circa pre WW2....this could push fat stuff over the edge.

For a second there, I was nodding in agreement.   Maybe someone can shed better light on this - do the N. Koreans have any idea their own history?   Isn't it all glorious communism?

The propaganda they're taught is the world is an evil place, that the US, Japan etc torture for fun, rape with impunity.
Sure, the truth gets in, but they are brainwashed from childhood through the school system that capitalism is evil.
Sound familiar?

Just one of the reasons why we homeschooled our kids.  Now they're evil, productive, innovative capitalists.  :blushing:

You wouldn't think Japan would need squeezing considering North Korea is sending missiles over them.

Indeed Boo. A reflection from history.
The nation to be reckoned with in Asia has always been Japan; never China.
Over the previous 125 years:
* Japan has trashed China three times on their soil,
* sent the Imperial Russian Grand Fleet to the bottom of the Straight of Tsushima,
along w/some 50,000 Russian sailors, manning 35 dreadnoughts; in 1905,
* occupied the Korean Peninsula from 1910-45,
* and gave us a stiff fight across the Pacific.
We we wise, we would nominate Japan as our proxy in Asia to deal w/NK, never China.
