As the relationship between Japan and the US has become unreliable, Japan needs its own nuclear deterrent. So does South Korea and Taiwan. I’d be very surprised if they aren’t working on it right now.
I feel like I’m back in fourth grade.
ah for the good ol’ days when the Clintons did so much good for the country and the world
any pictures of when Bill Richarddon invited the norks over to his ranch for barbeque?
Wonder if they shared their recipes for roasted peasant
You’re right. Only weak people feel the need to threaten, it is as much for their own resolve as it is to scare or warn others. The strong just know they are ready.
Expect more of the same. When Iran gets the bomb, there will be hell to pay.
Don't worry. It would be far, far worse had 0bama not handled the situation so perfectly.

They can’t have it both ways...
I suspect the Japanese could produce a native nuclear weapon within 30 days of the go order.
I think the country has regressed so far down the tube because of its insane communist agenda for generations they see no salvation, they WANT to die.
Its a country that cannot live with the rest of the world, all its saying day after day...
I am sure Hagel and Kerry have Kim wetting his pants.
Aren’t the NORKs afraid of unleashing Godzirra on the world again?
Knowing the Japanese and their love and prowess with technology they may have started a program of a more efficient explosive device, such as a plasma bomb, no radiation, leaves basically nothing but plasma gas.
Or by the time you finish reading this post. They probably have all the components built, tested and sitting no further than 6" apart from each other awaiting assembly, and has probably been the case for decades.
No doubt. Ditto SK.
I was thinking similar thoughts about 'pants wetting', but it wasn't Kim who came to mind. The world (unfortunately) knows quite well who wears the 'mom jeans'.
