Skip to comments.JAPAN RAISING TERROR THREAT LEVEL TONIGHT (ON GUARD AGAINST N.KOREAN AGENTS AFTER U.N. ACTION)

Story in Japanese at the link above.
By the Government of Japan, in response to North Korea's threat earlier today to treat 'severe sanctions' as a defacto 'declaration of war'.
They would be yelling "Wuidehanryongdoja KimJong il dongji, Manse!" all the way it would seem--as impassioned as an "Allah Ahkbar!" Not out of the question.
I know of no air marshal system onboard Japanese aircraft and it's anybody's guess how soon the Air Self Defense Forces could scramble.
The Japanese are essentially not that good at crisis management, something big and entirely unexpected, which is very worrisome.
Am glad he's your friend, too.
Tell us the story your brother told you...
I try this from memory he told this to his friend when he stationed in South Korea for few months he talk to South Korea soldier who was loaded when he met him
Said that Chia Pet may have cause the death of his Papa Kim Yong Sun by having argument with the father which Father has massive heart attack
I prefer to call him ( KIM GONE ILL ).
Yeah, the two countries have a long history of pi$$ing on each other, kind of like England and France.
You said -- "Everything I've read has been about preventing Japan's need for their own nuclear arsenal."
Do you really think the U.S. would "encourage" or even "allow" Japan to have (even) the *first bomb* in a nuclear arsenal?
The U.S. has a lot more influence over Japan than they do over North Korea. I don't think that would ever happen (just from the U.S. side of things...).
Do you think a European country will side with Iran? Which one? Seems Russia's a swing - they'll probably go with us...
Hey Prophet every Freeper has nickname for Kim Jong II i hear Little Kim
Kim Mentally Ill
Kim and Play
Join the club everybody has name on FR for Kim Jong 11
Hey guys check out this
... and with Big Ole' China breathing down Japan's neck, meantime. What you have speculated is entirely possible. "Old" Japan would be pulling together and taking this threat very seriously; do you happen to know how "new" Japan is taking the threat? New Japan, meaning, the "everything is Rock 'n' Roll" Japan? What is the mood of the "everyday" people; and not those in official capacity, pls?
I think China's military advancement will eventually force a nuclear deterrent (they're aggressively stealing US secrets and have built two Aegis destroyers) and the US will eventually approve of Japan acquiring a nuke if not sooner because of N.Korea.
Regime change in a handful of places, the old-fashioned way.
Monday, Rush Limbaugh interviewed me on Epicenter for the November issue of The Limbaugh Letter. For about 45 minutes, we discused how since taking office in 2000, former KGB chief-turned Russian President Vladimir Putin has built strong personal, political and military ties to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. Putin has sold Iran and North Korea billions of dollars worth of arms and even nuclear technology. He is arming America's worst enemies for war, and in so doing, Russia has joined the "Axis of Evil." Yet on this critical issue, official Washington seems to be in a true state of denial.
Good question...I'm not so sure Russia will side with us...the rapid expansion of NATO eastward has Russia disturbed...also notice how fussy they've been with Georgia the last two weeks. As far as European countries, I'm sure massive bribery like the "oil for food" scandal is happening even as we type.
** Good question...I would think Chavez will shut all supply to US once we engage Iran. Wouldn't surprise me if there are Hezbollah terrorists stationed in Cuba due to Chavez's work with the Iranian nut. Syria will get involved.**
From what I understand, both China and Russia have agreements with Iran to protect it. Therefore, if we attack Iran, we could be looking at a fight with both China and Russia.
If the truth were know, I wouldn't be surprised if NK is behaving as a puppet of China. Clinton not only helped North Korea to build nukes, but also sold highly advanced computer technology to China(not to mention technology that was stolen from Los Alamos and etc). That technology enabled China to point their long range nukes at our cities and God only knows what else.
We could easily see nukes flying around the globe from several directions, if we get into a battle with either North Korea or Iran. Prayers for President Bush to sort out this mess!!!
Thanks so much for the post. In times past a "congrats" might have been ARIGATAKU ZONJIRU SORO.
