    Re: Japan poised to shoot down North Korean missile

    ... order to destroy the missile should any part of it threaten to fall onto Japanese territory ...
    that emphasized portion is salient to the conversation
    japan is only exercising prudent self defense
    just as iran does when it shoots down American drones flying in iranian air space

    there is absolutely no love lost between the japanes and the koreans ... doesn't matter, north or south ... so japan is not going to refuse to defend its territory out of concern its action might provoke an attack on SK by NK

    and should such an attack scenario unfold, is there a place on the planet where the use of tactical nuclear weapons might be found more acceptable

    With hundred of thousands of South Korean lives lost. Good plan!

    Do us all a favor, join the military and get stationed in Korea. Maybe then you will actually have a clue about the REAL dangers that North Korea presents.

    I altered my position.

    That still doesn't change the fact that the NK military, is archaic comparatively speaking, and that they would be steam rolled.

    The large cities of South Korea would be toast too, that's the problem. The North has 1000's of missiles poised for that very purpose.

    Yea I didn't think about that initially.
    I think it really depends on the type of rockets/missiles being used and if SK has any rocket/missile defense systems in place.
    I'm sure they do, but not sure about how effective they would be.

    You were stationed in Seoul for a bit, weren't you Snake? (you are Snake, aren't you?) How do you think an US and Co. assault on North Korea would go down? Would the ensuing artillery bombardment on Seoul be devastating?

    But then what? Someone's gonna have to administer NK, and with a starving population bred on fear and ignorance, that's not going to be an easy task.
