    North Korea may test-fire missile toward Japan

    North Korea may test-fire missile toward Japan

    SEOUL, Feb 4 (Reuters) - North Korea may be preparing to use the site of its previous ballistic missile launches on the east coast to fire its longest range missile, possibly towards Japan, news reports said on Wednesday.

    The missile reports follow threats directed at Seoul and Washington, which analysts said are meant to intimidate conservative South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and grab the attention of new U.S. President Barack Obama.

    South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper quoted government sources as saying that a large object suspected to be part of a long-range Taepodong-2 missile was being transported to the missile site on North Korea's east coast.

    "The test site on the east coast means the missile will likely be fired over Japan and in the direction of the United States," Chosun Ilbo quoted the source as saying.

    The Taepodong-2 is supposed to have a range that could eventually take it as far as Alaska, but has never flown successfully.

    And they say we don't need a NMD.

    You know, they better hope and pray that Japan never decides enough is enough, and builds some missiles itself. I have no doubt that Japan knows how to build a nuke too.
