    Japan would be the back-up power to check China and North Korea. Sell them an aircraft carrier and let them protect Taiwan if necessary and bring our 50,000 troops home from Japan.

        Sell them a used one since we no longer have to protect Taiwan we can spare it, or offer them a 10 year lease.

          They do not have the capability to check China, and SK can check NK on its own with conventional forces. All they are missing is an independent nuclear capability, like Japan, both of which have the capability but are under the US nuclear umbrella, which the US extends because it is in US interests to limit nuclear proliferation. The US doesn't keep bases in Germany and Japan to defend those countries, it keeps bases there to boost the global reach of the US military. Trump doesn't want to give up US global military dominance, otherwise he wouldn't be cutting essential programs to boost military spending. He just wants to do a shakedown, which won't work because US bases are serving US interests. And it won't work with NATO because the Donald has just fundamentally misunderstood how that works.

            We don't have any to spare and having a carrier is against their constitution

              • Rewriting the Japanese constitution, no problem. You're really keyed in to Trump's thought processes here. The Republican congress in the US can get right on that, just after they make healthcare cheaper and cover everyone, because there are no problems that can't be solved by just declaring what you're gonna do.

                    • The Russkies have a carrier they might be willing to part with, high mileage, bit of a fixer upper, and you need to follow it around with a couple of tugs just in case.

                        Why not? I'm paying for coal miner's black lung, and atheists can totes pay for religious schools.

                        He must not have asked one of the single moms who cant afford cable that uses Sesame Street to keep their kid occupied, or Nova to give the kid a leg up in school, or Americas Test Kitchen to feed the kid healthier options. Same for the wife of the coal miner raising the brood while daddy is getting black lung or buried in a mine collapse because of deregulation, and that inspectors are no longer allowed within 50 miles of a coal mine.

                        We wouldn't want a coal miner to accidentally watch Newshour and learn about something that affects them that the Coal Co. didnt tell them. These people literally killed themselves, and screwed their families with their vote. And they would do it again.

                          • Fortunately Trump is on top of the carrier race, because y'all have really fallen behind if they get the flushes working.
