    I'm white British Turk for a start.

    from the outside what happens in your country which acts like the world police, cannot police its own people looks very bad.
    minority's always getting killed for just walking down the street.

    let me answer your question like this. if you are a minority you cant be oppressed than the maximum before because it's normal, right?

    your probably thinking i dont care what you think. but the people of the countries you oppress with your military doesn't think like that. funny that.



    also people in rest the world think if world war 3 happen its will be because of USA.

    Especially with Trump's latest tweet that sounds like a not very veiled threat to North Korea. If I was in America I'd be really scared the North Korea was going to drop a bomb on me.

    the truth is N. Korea can't do anything to USA. Shit even rest of the world can't put togther.

    N. Korea Vs USA is a bad case of man childs with bad hair cuts shouting at one another the loudest and one day this man childs going to throw toys at one another. nothings going to happen to them. Just millions of poor innocent people going to die instead.

    Okay. happy for ya.




    You're incoherent to me. Everything you say is laced with hyperbolic imaginings of doomsday and you seem to think the streets all over the USA are a literal shooting gallery 24/7. There are some very concentrated bad neighborhoods in some large cities here, and the illegal drug trade fuels a lot of the violence that occurs in those places. But outside of those zones, the US is not an unusually violent country. Really. (I lived in Japan for over two years, I have some idea what a purportedly very peaceful country is actually like.) I'm a libertarian and I oppose the strict prohibitions on recreational drugs in the USA. I believe very strongly that if marijuana were legalized nationwide and if 'popular' narcotics were available to addicts via a safe, controlled facility, much of the gang violence that inflates the gun crime statistics for the US would end. That is a real solution to the gun violence problem here. Gun control would just give the drug cartels and the gangs that work for them another cash cow.

    The homicide rate in the United States is 16 times higher than Japan. So, Japan really is a peaceful country. Not sure what you're trying to insinuate here?

    I was just saying that Japan is like everyone's poster child example of a peaceful, law abiding urban nation, but I still saw people getting the shit kicked out them by young gang-related thugs all the time (bar district, late night). And while gun control is strictly in effect there among the everyday population that obeys the laws, the gangs have guns. Their actions mostly stay off the radar, because they're not stupid and there's a 'managed' relationship between the yakuza and the police. Over 100,000 people go missing in Japan every year. Some are intentionally in hiding, some are suicides. But everyone there knows that most are people who had their debts with the yakuza foreclosed, permanently. In Japan, if there's no body, there's no crime. You can't always trust statistics.

    So... If I'm understanding you here, the big issue is that the police have become corrupted by the Yakuza

    Well, the big issue is there's a whole lot more homicide in Japan than their govt. statistics will ever report.

    Goes back hundreds of years. It's not so much the police are corrupted ... the yakuza historically have served an important, if not entirely legit, civic function in Japan. Moneylending, managing vice industries of gambling and prostitution (which is very mainstream), conflict resolution which would be dealt with by civil lawsuits in other countries. The more legitimate functions of the yakuza have been diminishing with time though, which pushes them into more illicit criminal stuff. The police crack down occasionally, but like I said before if there's no body, there's no crime. The yakuza know this and take care of their business accordingly.
