    If they want him for their leader, they can have him. Might make Japan viable again. But only works as long a the US is a presence on the world stage.

    Guess what? Foreign countries don't get to "rally" to American politicians except maybe for radical left wing democrats like A. Gore.

    Thank Ralph Nader. If half of his NH tally had voted for Gore, Al would have been president. All hail the right's hero!

    It doesn't mean much that Ron Paul made an appearance in Japan. It isn't an endorsement by any means. I doubt that Paul saying he would pull troops out of South Korea made the Japanese happy or comfortable. It would probably make most Japanese shit their pants.

    The Japanese are an incredibly polite people as the smattering of polite applause shows. The rest who stood there dumbstruck at the possibility of unfettered North Korea were probably thinking "Hope this lunatic gets nowhere near the presidency."

    If they felt he was dangerous the Japanese media would be all over him, not endorsing the policy that Japan can take care of itself. We have already seen the Israel Prime Minister agree with Ron Paul's foreign policy - now we see who are the really protectionists and it is not Ron Paul.

    Why? Is rallying for an American President against the law in foreign countries?

    Do you think we have many Japanese-Americans who vote?
