    Is Japan not ready to use military force as a defensive measure if NK launches misses? I think we should discuss things with our allies and if they are totally opposed we should reconsider going to war, but I do think that if we can win support that we should go to war without a doubt.

    Do you even know what a war with North Korea would look like, I can't believe after over 10 years of Afghanistan and 8 in Iraq people still think wars are simple matters
    A war is relatively straight forward, we kicked the **** out of Afghanistan and Iraq (the country's proper military), really quickly, it's any remaining militant groups that have caused so much strife.
    No I'm not arguing for going to war, but I do think that we'd had them their asses in short order.

    The slight difference between Iraq, Afghanistan and North Korea is that neither of countries has a leadership with a few thousand rockets aimed at another country. We shoot Pyongyang and as a minimum we'll see a few hundred thousand civilian casualties in South Korea which will be inevitably blamed on the US.

    Very true and good point.

    Best we can do is let Asian start its own conflict and we just pile on WWII style. In any scenario people will still find reason for blaming the US but at the very least, we won't be involved in the immediate cataclysm device.

    Sort of. Big heavy crude ones that don't always work right, not the sort you can easily mount on a missle.


    Incidentally their missles are named No-Dong missles.... amusing no?

    Yes it is pretty straight forward if you don't count the hard part I guess.

    There's a difference between preparing to shoot down a missile and favoring regime change through war, also don't forget that Japan's own Constitution does even allow it to go to war. Why not let our allies come to us first rather than us going to them, if they want war they will make it known.
