I can’t help but think that all this chest-thumping by N. Korea is covering something bigger. I don’t trust China.
At least one Country is willing to shoot it down. Our Country should have set up and told Fat Boy if you fire one we will shoot it down and let Fat Boy think that one over.
Wouldn’t it be convenient for China, in the midst of a territorial dispute with Japan, if the NORKS provoked them into a war........
This is the end. Nobody’s backing down. The kid is weak, has a weak hand and I’d imagine China is negotiating furiously for an alternative that allows it to save face.
Missile Defense is the last line of defense. I think the Korean missiles should be taken out. We aren’t talking about some Iraqi scud missile. They have threatened to use nukes. Don’t give them the chance.
It would not be an unprovoked attack since North Korea has already announced to the world they will attack the US, Japan, and South Korea. Other actions they have taken suggest an attack is possible within days.
God Bless Japan.
*** damn North Korea.
Good news bump..maybe this action by Japan will stiffen the spines of Pres. Obama and his team.
Are you all keeping your eye on the wrong ball?
Are you forgeting the methods Obungles uses?
What is the other hand doing?
Per some recent threads, NK has warned Russia and UK to get their people out by April 10.
Some post that April 15 is Little Tyrant’s birthday.
On FoxNews Sunday, Chris Wallace said that Little Tyrant seems more interested in emulating his Grandfather than his Father. His Grandfather was the one who invaded SK.
The latter part of this week could be very interesting.
What is the sentiment in Japan vis a vis going nuclear?
My understanding, if they do, could have a deliverable (all platforms) warhead in 6 months. True?
Somebody has to step up, Lord knows our Prezzy won’t.
“Bully!” I believe that I&W would be enough to launch in order to defend our allies. No missile system can launch without certain I&W. Once Japan’s sensors or ours that we pass to them, receive power up indicators, RF links being established, etc., we should have the authority to launch a strike to prohibit the NORKs from getting off the launchpad or mobile TEL.
If Japan ever goes nuclear... WATCH OUT.
My father used to tell me horror stories of a military Japan and how cruel they were to their enemies.
BTW, The Koreans (both North and South) and the Chinese have not forgotten their cruelty either.
I keep thinking how hilarious it would be if the NKors launched a missile towards Japan, that suddenly veered North to Vladivostok. I imagine that Putin would turn several different colors of ticked off.
Dear Tiny Kim,
Japan is one sleeping giant you do NOT want to awaken. If you launch a missile at them, they WILL demand to become a nuclear power, and I don’t think anyone could mount a logical argument to stop them. Some of us would stand on the sidelines and applaud them.
Which is a whole lot more than you can say about Japan's Ally, the United States of America.
Obama has been caught with his pants down, and he uis conducting a campaihn about supporting Japan, but nothing is really being done on the ground other than moving a few resources around.
