U.S. Neo-Cons Call For Japanese Nukes, Regime Change...
'Encouraging Japan to build nuclear weapons, shipping food aid via submarines, and running secret sabotage operations inside North Korea's borders are among a raft of policy prescriptions pushed by prominent U.S. neo-conservatives in the wake of Pyongyang's nuclear test.

Writing in publications from National Review Online (NRO) to the New York Times, neo-conservatives claim, contrary to the lessons drawn by "realist" and other critics of the George W. Bush administration, that Monday's test vindicates their long-held view that negotiations with "rogue" states like North Korea are useless and that "regime change" -- by military means, if necessary -- is the only answer.

"With our intelligence on North Korea so uneven, the doctrine of pre-emption must return to the fore," wrote Dan Blumenthal, an Asia specialist at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) who worked for Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld during Bush's first term, in the NRO Tuesday. "Any talk of renewed six-party talks must be resisted."'

5. Arming Japan with nuclear weapons would be awesome
I don't really like living anymore anyways so I'm on board with this policy of death by nuclear war.

8. As the only nation ever attacked with nuclear weapons...
The people of Japan have a pretty damned good reason to oppose a Japanese nuclear weapons program.

Fuck you, neo-cons.

10. repairing historic mistakes
The japanese mistake was violating the nonagression pack with the US,
and the nazi mistake was violating the one with the USSR, consolidation
of europe would have been better first, and likewise, japanese is now
being encouraged, on cue, to consolidate its asian power again, that
japan serve its sovereign purpose to be a large unsinkable aircraft carrier
off of china.

12. Pre-emptive nuclear proliferaton to prevent nuclear proliferation?
Makes about as much sense as killing 655,000 Iraqis to provide them with "democracy" and "freedom".
