Secretary Of Defense James Mattis On The Move!

Secretary of Defense James Mattis toured South Korea and Japan, sending shockwaves throughout the region.  His first stop was at the Korean War Memorial, where he honored those who had fallen and personally thanked those who fought and survived. He visited joint forces as well as held high level meetings with both military and government officials.

Mattis then went to Japan, where he met with officials to discuss the terms of the U.S. Japan Defense Agreement as well as the threats posed by both N. Korea and China.  He also held an electric joint press conference (see below) where he committed the United States to the defense of the Senkaku Islands that China claims.  The U.S. opposition media will attempt to turn an extremely successful mission into something negative. “China is angry” “Trump is going to start a war” etc.  IGNORE THEM.

Japan and South Korea are happy. China and North Korea are SHOOK.
That is all that matters.
