...If the president really wants to help, he can continue to deliver persons and aid to the region, and he also needs to do something to make sure these earthquakes stop. Some of these earthquakes are the result of a gravitational pull caused by satellites hooking on to metal with magneticity. They are manmade disasters... The tsunamis are the results of the grounds shaking, and or additional weaponry aimed at the oceans, when the weapon hits, a large tidal wave becomes active... The whirlpool looks to be the result of a swirling motion, caused by possibly a gravitational field from a satellite swirling over sunken metals... The Earthquakes have to stop, if he wants to stop natural disasters, he will de-activate offensive satellite weaponry, whether it's operated from within this country, or any other. We also do not need illegal broadcasting, dividing our relationships, or trying to illegally cause any action, each illegal attempt is a detraction and a disgusting manipulation of free will, and a diminishment to liberty. Satellite output could've caused these whirlpools with either illegal output, or a destructive gravitational force.

And, we cannot have our leaders fooled, even if these illegal operatives, illegally utilizing satellite weaponry, or computer equipment illegally do something helpful every once-in-awhile, it is a detriment to the health of free-will and the physical health of people, what their actions are doing in those moments they are not acting helpfully, and their actions are violent to the point of inflicting unwanted, illegal, physical pain.

Cost-effective if i can afford, Japan earthquake, gather volunteers for disaster recovery, to give a little help.
(If possible, the media or the American people in the U.S., the Japanese earthquake are struggling to help them figure, often broadcast pregnant. As soon as possible)

Of rice to North Korea palgye`s thinking.
- The purpose of the unified approach to North Korea I think. Absolutely.
Now the government is reluctant to support, the goal looks like the collapse. After the collapse of the regime, South Korea's government is the ability to absorb the shock, the people, the costs of unification wondering if there are willing to pay in taxes.
Perhaps, hard to think.

How to support the government of Korea has always, in the lead in national tax policy and enforcement decisions, but the consensus of the people failed to think. I, the cost of people, a specific goal is set, the 1000 Korea won the money, as needed, by raising money from donations, if paid, tax reduction and the resistance to policy that aims to unify the people and formed with the government, while the chemistry of interest, being induced, no regime change, to maintain a consistent policy is likely to be big.

Among the policy as government policy, people and countries need to build consensus, national somyeonggam There are issues that require,
The thought of me sometimes to think otherwise.

Poor and difficult, that hunger, you think crime is as strong as the lure.

Gaddafi side wins, the militia (police force, armed with the degree of ascent) is expected for the genocide. Middle of the aspirations for democracy and capitalism is highly likely to think smaller. Also concerns about Islamic nationalism, but to ignore them is considered bad behavior.
