Actually the truth is, or at least was as of 2011- this might have changed a bit-
The US DoD operates and owns/leases 109 total military installation sites in Japan, and 85 in South Korea. And there are separate Air Force, Navy,
Army, and Marine Corps components to most of these sites, in varying degrees.
So Japan is pretty well covered.
What this sounds like to me is a rowdy politician wanting to put preemptive strike capability into their own hands- despite the massive US forces
there. And we just can't have THAT now, can we? Only the US can decide who gets preempted. Or haven't you figured that out by now? After all, we are
the striking component of the New World Order.
And if they had figured out how to take out NK missile installations hidden in mountains without nuking the place, they probably would have already
done it by now. Either that, or they have figured it out- and it's coming. But with nukes on the scene, NK has upped the anti. Could potentially cost
a little too much blood now. Houston has definitely got a problem.
