The Kyodo News Agency, citing sources from the Japanese Ministry of Defense, reports Japan will dispatch two Aegis equipped destroyers into the Sea of Japan that could potentially shoot-down missiles launched by North Korea.
Japan's government has not confirmed this report.
For the past few weeks, Japanese, South Korean and American intelligence agencies have been closely watching activity at a rocket launch pad on North Korea's east coast.
"Japan really has no reason to be particularly worried. I think North Korea knows perfectly well the logic of deterrents," said Dujaric. "That is an act of war against Japan would be considered by the United States an attack on the United States, and would bring about the destruction of North Korea."

So when is NK suppose to launch this missile? Most of the time when this happens we get all sorts of reports about seeing it being fueled on the launch pad etc but not this time. Have they not even gotten to that point and if not, then why all the talk like a launch is imminent?
