Voiceofreason01: You didn't think those Aegis cruisers were sitting out in the Sea of Japan just for the hell of it did you?
gfid: Pyongyang has threatened an unspecified "new form" of nuclear test.I'm wondering what this could be?So far, they've just done underground tests I think.And above ground test? A test at sea? Those would be new to NK, but they've been done by other nations.Maybe he'll execute someone by forcing them to walk up to it with a hammer?
yagottabefarkinkiddinme: Good. I am tired of NK, especially when they threaten nuclear strikes against the USA.No more appeasement.
Speef: Wow. Are there any other countries that will shoot down incoming hostile missiles, or is it just Japan?This is an amazing news story. It reminds me of the one about how Obama ate a sandwich.

Xhan: yagottabefarkinkiddinme: Good. I am tired of NK, especially when they threaten nuclear strikes against the USA.No more appeasement.Appeasement? Are we sending them money or something in exchange for not attacking us? Standing by idly while they invade parts of the US? I'm really not following why that particular word was chosen.
Revek: What they should do is launch a strike on their launch facilities. This would cause much derp from the prc but its a long swim to japan.
PunkTiger: I'm of the firm belief that if a North Korean missile touches Japan, regardless of the type of warhead on it, that will be "it" for Li'l Kim and his Divine Dictatorship. Someone is going to backhand him, but good.
Pointy Tail of Satan: Do any current anti-ballistic missile systems actually work? I mean, other than against missiles that are designed to be intercepted for demo purposes.
Cyrusv10: How the eff does North Korea get the money to afford those long range missiles?
sendtodave: If NK was ever able to get a missile to hit Japan, would the rest of Asia cheer them?Because everyone kinda hates Japan.
gfid: Maybe he'll execute someone by forcing them to walk up to it with a hammer?
gfid: Cyrusv10: How the eff does North Korea get the money to afford those long range missiles?They export about $4 billion a year* and the labor in NK is really cheap.* https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.h t mlTrade with China represents 57% of North Koreas imports and 42% of exports. ** Stuff from China is really cheap.** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_North_KoreaThey also have some economic ties with South Korea
Speef: Of course Japan, like every other country with anti-missile systems, will try to shoot down incoming missles. This is about as newsworthy a headline as "MAN EATS SANDWICH".
whither_apophis: Dear Best Korea,Have you forgotten what a fully armed and operational Japanese Army can do? Go ask China.ktksbye.
lucksi: gfid: Maybe he'll execute someone by forcing them to walk up to it with a hammer?I'd pay to see that.
Deep Contact: When is China going to take over NK?
Unimpressed Man: Deep Contact: When is China going to take over NK?If they did, it would no longer be a "buffer State", it would be "China". It would also be "their problem".
itazurakko: Israel has their Iron Dome system, but it's a much smaller scale thing (they actually have shot down rockets).
meow said the dog: It is as though the Republicans of the People of Korea have desire for the happy ping pong toys. Flowers. I do not know. It is ashamed of you. LAUGHTER OL no this is not accurate do not worry.
rockforever: No one with half a brain thinks that NK is a buffer state.
