What about the ignorant idiots from Tepco? They destroyed the Pacific Ocean. Why are you even mentioning North Korea for? They didn't destroy anything yet other than slowly killing their own people.

North Korea just hides what they have done. They are rather terrible.

So what are the things North Korea have done that makes Tepco's doings less significant?

Don't change a subject. The Olympic 2020 is held in Tokyo and it means Japan is much safer than North Korea.

What? Are you drunk or something? I am not changing the subject. Let's review this whole thread from the beginning, shall we?

The thread was about radioactive nightmare and the Fukushima meltdown. You then compared the meltdown to nuclear tests by North Korea. I then argued that the North Korean missile tests haven't destroyed any part of the world yet, while the nuclear meltdown literally destroyed the Pacific Ocean. Makes sense, correct?

You then responded back by saying "North Korea just hides what they have done and are rather terrible." I didn't understand what that meant, so I asked what the things North Korea have done makes Tepco's doings less significant. I mean, North Korean's doings are localized, within their own country and borders (mostly), while Tepco literally destroyed an entire ocean.

Everything in this thread was within the topic, so I don't understand how you thought I was changing the subject. Is that how you run away when you're losing, I wonder? Samurais admit their defeat my ass, what a hypocrite. The Olympics will never be held in North Korea, so your argument about how Japan is safer than North Korea makes zero sense.

To this day, highly radioactive and contaminated water continues to spread in the Pacific Ocean. Your ignorant government put too much trust in Tepco. You lost the argument, Ainu, deal with it. Stop comparing Tepco to North Korean missile tests.

I will NEVER answer your provocations.

Japan is safer than North Korea.

That's all.

Provocations, noun. An action or speech that makes someone annoyed or angry, esp. deliberately.

Ugh, re-read my replies, they aren't provocations. Rather, I'm questioning why you're comparing the Fukushima meltdown to North Korean missile tests.

Simply saying "Japan is safer than North Korea" is a poor argument and it means nothing. Your answer is broad, safer in terms of what? We're not even talking about which country is safer to live in. I asked "what are the things North Korea have done that makes Tepco's doings less significant?" and you haven't answered back. You dodged my question and you changed the subject.

You're the hypocrite, you're the chicken in this thread. Act like a man and admit your defeat, or answer my question if you even have a good answer.
