Posted on 04/12/2013 4:01:54 AM PDT by Fennie
Pyongyang warned that Tokyo would be its primary target if war broke out on the Korean Peninsula, if Japan maintains its "hostile posture." It also threatened a nuclear strike against the island nation if it intercepts any North Korean test missiles.
In the comments, carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Friday, Pyongyang lambasted Tokyo's standing orders to shoot down any North Korean missile heading towards Japan, Seoul-based Yonhap news agency reports.

A pre-emptive strike FROM ANY country against NK would be justifiable by now. In a sane world that is.
Apparently you can threaten your neighbors and the world with nuclear war, and get away with it. It’s like pointing a loaded gun at a cop and pulling back the hammer. At that point YOU DESERVE TO BE SHOT!
Sounds like the U.S. news media outlets have entered the pucker factor tonight!
Why does the world put up with this crap?
Wow. After watching you for years informing this board about the NORKS and their huge artillery installations next to Seoul, I'm a little surprised that you are ready for a devastating war.
But then if our US leaders had the gumption to authorize a first strike, NORKS would no longer threaten east asia. We both know that won't happen. As I've said on other threads, I care nothing about collateral damage. Kill them all as we did with the German Nazis, Italian Facists, and Imperial Japan. They learned their lesson - it's time to show others.
At this point, if this were a credible threat, I’d be inclined to suspect there might be weapons already planted in Tokyo. That solves the transportation problem, then it just remains to be seen whether or not they actually work.
Seems like we’re nearing the “call the bluff” moment.
Iran won’t blackmail. They will strike
Only the Chinese can stop the Norks. Why haven’t they?
Did anyone read the comments section on this?
No surprise at all. They are just bluffing. He needs something from Uncle Sugar. The main thing is that Obongo and his ilk don’t freak out and get the Hershey Squirts. I pay attention to actual movements on the ground. They have done little to prepare their Pyongyang population for an all out attack, or civil defense drills and the like, and all goes on for normal. Same with the DPRK KPA cadre and upper elite. When they all go to deep ground under the bunkers, and the world is sent out to the general populace to harden in place, then I’ll start to worry and wonder. Until then (and I do not discount their arty along the ROK border), he’s full of hot air waiting for us to blink and their intel tells them the Democrats are full of enough D.C. Administration Chicken Shiites to do such a thing (i.e. capitulate under duress).
