Japanese Government Misinformation On North Korea’s Rocket Launch | The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus

One example of recent Japanese psychological war was the deployment of the Patriot PAC3 (anti-missile missiles) to Miyako and Ishigaki islands, southwest of Okinawa. In response to North Korea’s prior announcement of the satellite launch, the Japanese government issued a “ballistic missile destruction order” to the Self Defense Forces. Three Aegis destroyers were deployed in the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea. Also land-based Patriot PAC-3 batteries were put on alert in the Tokyo metropolitan area and in Okinawa’s main island. In addition, PAC-3 fire units were dispatched to two remote islands of Okinawa prefecture because the anticipated trajectory of the North Korean “missile” was close to those islands. But if the launch proceeded as planned, the altitude of the rocket would be more than 400 km above the islands. There is no legal basis for shooting down a rocket flying in outer space, which is outside of Japanese territorial air space. Furthermore, PAC-3 cannot reach such a target, as its maximum altitude is a mere 15 km.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What happens when racist, alt-right, anti-feminist, anti-asian white men marry extremely racist, status-obsessed, asian women that hate asian men and hope their children look white - and have a son or daughter who looks asian?

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children?
