and im sorry i had to laugh. i mean..no freaking DUH!! who wouldnt regard a country aiming a missle at their country and hitting them as being an attack. even if it was an "opps" situation.

That what im trying to get at Japan gearing up its military to meet any threat it percieves not Japan gearing up after they are attacked. Though they could likely do that aswell since N Korea has no real way to invade and hold Japan that I can tell.

Thanks for participating in my thread guys, your input is much appreciated.
you guys make some good points. and some very funny comments
the more i think about this situation a possibility comes to mind.
is it probable that N. Korea isnt going to test their nuke at all?
maybe they are just pretending/threatening to just so the u.s and others in the
international community start proposing compromises?
meaning, kim is just crying wolf so other countries offer him more privaleges or access to materials if he promises not to test the nuke?
i think it is possible that he just wiggled his way in the get some more crap.
kind of a good plan. even if he did really piss people off.
just a thought.
