Posted on 04/12/2013 4:01:54 AM PDT by Fennie
Pyongyang warned that Tokyo would be its primary target if war broke out on the Korean Peninsula, if Japan maintains its "hostile posture." It also threatened a nuclear strike against the island nation if it intercepts any North Korean test missiles.
In the comments, carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Friday, Pyongyang lambasted Tokyo's standing orders to shoot down any North Korean missile heading towards Japan, Seoul-based Yonhap news agency reports.

As the relationship between Japan and the US has become unreliable, Japan needs its own nuclear deterrent. So does South Korea and Taiwan. I’d be very surprised if they aren’t working on it right now.
I feel like I’m back in fourth grade.
ah for the good ol’ days when the Clintons did so much good for the country and the world
any pictures of when Bill Richarddon invited the norks over to his ranch for barbeque?
Wonder if they shared their recipes for roasted peasant
You’re right. Only weak people feel the need to threaten, it is as much for their own resolve as it is to scare or warn others. The strong just know they are ready.
Expect more of the same. When Iran gets the bomb, there will be hell to pay.
Don't worry. It would be far, far worse had 0bama not handled the situation so perfectly.
Japan wants US troops and the American footprint off its soil, yet wants a continued US umbrella to protect against nasty folks in the neighborhood.
They can’t have it both ways...
I suspect the Japanese could produce a native nuclear weapon within 30 days of the go order.
I think the country has regressed so far down the tube because of its insane communist agenda for generations they see no salvation, they WANT to die.
Its a country that cannot live with the rest of the world, all its saying day after day...
I am sure Hagel and Kerry have Kim wetting his pants.
Aren’t the NORKs afraid of unleashing Godzirra on the world again?
Knowing the Japanese and their love and prowess with technology they may have started a program of a more efficient explosive device, such as a plasma bomb, no radiation, leaves basically nothing but plasma gas.
Or by the time you finish reading this post. They probably have all the components built, tested and sitting no further than 6" apart from each other awaiting assembly, and has probably been the case for decades.
No doubt. Ditto SK.
I was thinking similar thoughts about 'pants wetting', but it wasn't Kim who came to mind. The world (unfortunately) knows quite well who wears the 'mom jeans'.
China’s biggest nightmare is a nuclear armed Japan. Fatso is going to get spanked.
Bring it on, mother frackers. All talk and no action. Full a crap and hot air. Barking, rabid dogs.
you may be right, but with our relationship with Japan becoming unreliable, I still am not sure I want them with nukes. They have caused us good deal of trouble in the past when they had an enhanced capabiliy to enge in war......
Hey North Korea.... I have only one word for you if you attack japan.... GODZILLA!
Also, sanctions can be carried too far.We should have ended this long ago. When people suffer long enough, they become desperate, whether it is the result of an oppressive dictatorship, starvation. We are going to find this out as well. I am 62 years old and would love to live another 25 years.If this nation doesn’t reverse it’s course, I probably will not live that long. And if it doesn’t reverse it’s course, I probably will change my mind, and not want to live that long. I don’t want to have to see my children live under what is coming.
You must be talking about John F'N Kerry and Hussein Obama. Yes?
Kind of makes one wonder if this is all orchestrated by our zero and his minions........ With all the crap this admin pulls, I wouldn’t put it past them as a distraction.
“I am sure Hagel and Kerry have Kim wetting his pants.”
Actually, Kim IS wetting his pants.....from laughter, every time Kerry, Hagel and Obama speak.
“I suspect the Japanese could produce a native nuclear weapon within 30 days of the go order.”
I suspect that they’re more likely just to go public with the fact that they’ve secretly had nukes for several years now. Not that I know that they have nukes, it’s just that I can’t imagine Japan NOT having nukes somewhere.
They’ve probably also got a legion of ninety-foot-high robots piloted by angsty teenagers.
Lets see. North Korea blusters about sending nukes flying, then claims it has a right to nuke Japan if it downs a test missile.
So just exactly how it Japan to know if a missile is a test missile or the real thing?
Japan is in a no-win situation. A preemptive strike would thus seem justified.
How does Soros benefit from this?
The puppets are dancing.
WATCH the movie 2013..
Just as Messrs. Obama and Hagel cut the Precision Tracking Space System completely out of the budget:
A pre-emptive strike FROM ANY country against NK would be justifiable by now. In a sane world that is.
Apparently you can threaten your neighbors and the world with nuclear war, and get away with it. It’s like pointing a loaded gun at a cop and pulling back the hammer. At that point YOU DESERVE TO BE SHOT!
Sounds like the U.S. news media outlets have entered the pucker factor tonight!
Why does the world put up with this crap?
Wow. After watching you for years informing this board about the NORKS and their huge artillery installations next to Seoul, I'm a little surprised that you are ready for a devastating war.
But then if our US leaders had the gumption to authorize a first strike, NORKS would no longer threaten east asia. We both know that won't happen. As I've said on other threads, I care nothing about collateral damage. Kill them all as we did with the German Nazis, Italian Facists, and Imperial Japan. They learned their lesson - it's time to show others.
At this point, if this were a credible threat, I’d be inclined to suspect there might be weapons already planted in Tokyo. That solves the transportation problem, then it just remains to be seen whether or not they actually work.
Seems like we’re nearing the “call the bluff” moment.
Iran won’t blackmail. They will strike
Only the Chinese can stop the Norks. Why haven’t they?
