The real problem here isn't the actual threat they pose, but the perceived threat.
Japan, telling their citizens to seek shelter is a major
concern as they don't know if a missile was inert or not. Even if it was not inert,
and never touched land or people, just detonating above a population center with a nuke, depending on the yield, would cause a helluva crisis just
from the pulse.
I think he is hoping for miscalculation in an effort to draw China into conflict with the US and Japan....Jong un is completing the task that Al
Quaeda couldn't complete; segregating what were once (mostly) allies to the point of conflict and weakening all sides.
I can't help but to wonder just how much a hand China has in condoning the North's extremist actions. I can't help but to wonder if they are the
ETA: This is rich, coming from China:
In Beijing, Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, told reporters Friday that China opposed the test, but called the situation
on the Korean Peninsula “complicated, sensitive and severe” and urged all sides to exercise restraint.
Ok fine. Does that mean that if WE embark upon a campaign of 24/7 missile flyovers on NK and into the sea, that the world too, has to exercise
restraint? F em...let the north be on the receiving end of not knowing what is inert versus the real mccoy....let their people rush to "shelter" every
5 minutes. I mean if the North invading another sovereign nations airspace with ordinance
is not an act of war, then a missile campaign over NK
surely can't be one either, right?
