“ Anti-Trump propaganda leaflets have been found strewn across the South Korean capital, including near the presidential residence. Reportedly blown in from North Korea, the colorful flyers depict the US leader as ‘a mad dog,” and wish gruesome death to the ‘old lunatic.’

One of the flyers depicts Donald Trump as a dog with a human face, standing behind a podium with ‘UN 2017’ written on it. The caricature holds a bomb in its mouth, which is inscribed with the words: ‘Totally destroy North Korea,’ according to Reuters.

‘Will kill 25,000,000 people in North Korea,’ the ‘mad dog’ says, while two men in suits, reminiscent of Japan’s Shinzo Abe and the South Korea’s Moon Jae-in, comment: ‘He’s gone completely insane’ and ‘If we let him be, there will be war.’

The leaflet apparently alludes to Trump’s address at the UN last month, in which he threatened Pyongyang with total destruction in the event of an attack on the US or its allies.”

Why snap elections?

Analysts see the early vote as his way to seize the resurgent support and exploit the current weakness of the opposition.

For months, Mr Abe's popular support has been badly hit by a string of scandals and unpopular policies.

In July, his ratings had dropped to less than 30% but then recovered to above 50% in September.

He denies allegations of cronyism and on Monday said dissolving the lower house was not an attempt at avoiding those allegations.

Mr Abe is also is trying to push through a controversial shift in Japan's post-war pacifist defence policy, calling for formal recognition of the military in the constitution.

Who will he be running against?

While Mr Abe's tough stance on North Korea has helped him regain support, his Liberal Democratic Party's (LDP) campaign is also expected to focus on social policies at home.

The main opposition Democratic Party went through a tumultuous leadership resignation in July and is currently struggling with single-digit poll ratings.

But Mr Abe faces a new challenge from a former LDP cabinet member, current Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, who earlier on Monday announced she was forming a new national political party.

If current opinion polls are confirmed at the ballot box in October, Mr Abe will remain prime minister but his current coalition with the smaller Komeito party might fail to secure the two-thirds majority needed for his plan to revise the constitution.

If he wins another term, it would put Mr Abe on track to becoming the country's longest-serving political leader in Japan's post-war history.”

“On Saturday, Lavrov urged Washington and Pyongyang to reduce tensions and described the trading of insults between their leaders as a ‘kindergarten fight between children.’

In addition to threats posed by Washington on the peninsular Asian country, stringent sanctions drafted by the US, including bans on textile imports and capping crude and petrol supply, were also passed at the UN Security Council without opposition earlier this month to further pressure the North to abandon its nuclear and missile programs.

However, it seems that the sanctions have had little effect, if any, on Pyongyang’s will to complete its nuclear plans. Kim has already said that his country seeks to reach ‘equilibrium’ of military force with the US.

On September 17, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley acknowledged that the Security Council had run out of options on containing Pyongyang’s nuclear program, warning that the White House may have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

Russia and China have already warned that no military solution is available for resolving the escalating crisis in the Korean Peninsula, saying the current standoff will only be resolved through dialogue.

North Korea is under mounting international pressure over its missile and military nuclear programs and has been subjected to an array of sanctions by the United Nations. However, Pyongyang says it needs to continue and develop the programs as a deterrent against hostility by the US and its regional allies, including South Korea and Japan.”

文在寅新大統領は早期の南北会談を望んでいる。トランプ大統領も条件が整えば金正恩委員長との会談をしたいと言っている。連休中ソウルに一日いたが、北のミサイルについて、日常茶飯事だからと平然としていた。日本だけがミサイルが飛んできたらどう逃げるかなど騒いでいる。何か意図を感じる

北京で一帯一路フォーラムが行われています。習近平主席の演説は高い評価です。一帯一路の目的は1に平和、2に繁栄です。何か日本が取り残されている感があります。北朝鮮がミサイルを発射したようですが、誰一人言及しませんでした。日本では騒いでいるようですね

日本,「状況によっては北朝鮮に軍事攻撃を行う」

“ロイター通信によりますと、中谷大臣は19日火曜、異例の表明として、北朝鮮がアメリカをミサイル攻撃した場合、日本は北朝鮮を攻撃することが可能だと述べています。
日本の報道各社が、中谷大臣の話として報じたところによりますと、このミサイル攻撃は大惨事になると思われる為、その結果を考慮し、日本は北朝鮮に対するあらゆる軍事作戦に入る用意があるということです。
日本政府は最近、戦後初めて日本の自衛隊を国外での戦闘に派遣する許可を与える法案を可決しました。
中国と韓国はこれ以前に、日本の自衛隊が近い将来、海外での戦闘行為に参加できるようになることについて警告を発しており、日本に対し、性急な決定により地域の平和と安全を危機に陥れないよう警告しています”

'Japan can retaliate against North Korea'

“Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani said Sunday that Japan could retaliate against a North Korean base if Pyongyang launched a missile attack on the United States.

According to the Mainichi Shimbun, Monday, Nakatani made the remarks during an appearance in a program on Fuji Television.

The minister added that Tokyo's attack would be based on the premise that the U.S. was being attacked by the North and serious damage was expected.

Defense observers in South Korea said the comments about a possible attack on the North were very rare and are expected to provoke a strong response from the repressive state.

Nakatani's remarks came after Washington and Tokyo revised their defense guidelines on April 28.

The revision of the 1997 U.S.-Japan Defense Cooperation Pact removed geographic limits on the role of Japan's Self-Defense Forces, and expanded their role globally to help U.S. forces in military emergencies.

Collective self-defense is the right to engage in military activities overseas if one's allies are under attack. The revision has increased concerns that Tokyo may return to militarism.”
