    Breaking News: NK Threatens To "Sink" Japan With Nuclear Bombs

    North Korea threatened to use a nuclear weapon against Japan, further escalating tensions in North Asia after being hit with fresh United Nations sanctions earlier this week.

    “Japan is no longer needed to exist near us,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency said on Thursday, citing a statement by the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee. “The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche,” it said, a reference to the regime’s ideology of self-reliance.

    Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga called the comments, which sent the Korean won lower, “extremely provocative.”

    “If North Korea stays the course that it is on, it will increasingly become isolated from the world,” Suga told reporters on Thursday in Tokyo. “Through implementing the new United Nations Security Council resolution and related agreements, the international community as a whole needs to maximize pressure on North Korea so that it will change its policy.”

    The latest UN sanctions follow North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test earlier this month. In late August, the regime launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan in what it said was “muscle-flexing” to protest annual military drills between the U.S. and South Korea. Leader Kim Jong Un called it a “meaningful prelude” to containing Guam. North Korea previously threatened to launch rockets over Japan into the Pacific and toward the U.S. territory.

    Why don't we arrest Kim Jong-Un? Drag him in front of the Hague for war crimes, or attempted war crimes?

    And/or....give Japan nuclear weapons, so it can threaten North Korea with mutual assured destruction?

    And/or....make it 100% crystal clear that nuking Japan will DEFINITELY mean the US nukes North Korea? (But this is not simple; it's impossible to do so and not also destroy South Korea, a vital US ally.)

    And/or.....step into China and demand it shorten the leash on its pet crazy dictator in North Korea?



    Your thoughts?

    Japan doesn't need them because they are under our protection.

    We will fire them off for her.

    And we can't take down their regime because it would mean a fight with China.

    China wants NK there as a buffer.

    They don't like them any more than we do but they serve a purpose for them.

    Well, fine by me as long as that lunatic doesn't actually drop a nuke on Japan.

    NK isn't stupid, they know what will happen.

    If you don't think we have a Boomer parked off their coast you'd be fooling yourself and they know this also.

    China also gave us permission to hit them back if they were to touch Japan.

    These facts would deter a NORMAL person. But Jong-Un is patently NOT NORMAL.

    You are assuming Kim is actually in control.

    He might just be a figurehead being told what to do.

    --The fat little fucker is hiding out in bunkers, and, likely has instructions to start nuking people if he is harmed or apprehended.....

    And/or....give Japan nuclear weapons, so it can threaten North Korea with mutual assured destruction?
    --Good idea, and, eventually, the Japanese may go that route. But, for now, even THEY do not really want any nukes. What I think would be better, is ramping up our Anti-Ballistic Missile and Early Warning Systems throughout the region. THAT will get the attention of both China and Russia. They may not LIKE it, but, all we have to do is say that this is a passive defense system against North Korea......

    And/or....make it 100% crystal clear that nuking Japan will DEFINITELY mean the US nukes North Korea? (But this is not simple; it's impossible to do so and not also destroy South Korea, a vital US ally.)
    --South Korea, and, to a lesser extent, Japan, are the primary reasons a military option IS likely off the table. But, if the NKoreans nuke someone....well, then it will all depend on who is in the White House at the time. Some Presidents might push for "tougher sanctions," while others will respond with force....

    And/or.....step into China and demand it shorten the leash on its pet crazy dictator in North Korea?
    --That is already starting to happen. The mountain under which Fat Kim tests his nukes, is about to collapse. And, when it does, radiation may be spilled over in to China. But, now, it seems as if the RUSSIANS are trying to supply the little monster. Russia presents a bit different of a challenge. I think that the best way to make Putin wake up, would be to re-install the ABM/Early detection systems in Poland. Trust me...he WILL respond to that. Perhaps, we get him to the negotiating table under such circumstances.....

    I think the more likely scenario is that Fat Kim detonates a nuke in high atmosphere, resulting in an EMP burst. That way, he can claim "no casualties," (directly...), even as he threatens greater retaliation if attacked.

    To what end?

    What in the world would gain from that?

    Who knows?

    I don't think we are dealing with a man, or a regime, that is all that grounded in reality.

    But, I do get your point: One would have to think that Fat Kim and his Big Hats could do the simple math as to what comes if they actually USE one of these weapons. DEPENDING ON WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE. There may come the day, when he could use a nuke for such a job, and get little more than a 'push for greater sanctions....'
    Thanks from Madeline
