I’m just wating for when the word war between Trump and Kim has gone so far that they just have to do something stupid for not losing their face.
But it dosen’t have to lead to a attack from either side, maybe it will just be a word war like it has been for ca 50 years now?
But Japan is ready with enable missile defense if NK launch missiles towards Guam, the missiles wil fly over Japan if i understand correct.
“The Defense Ministry and the Self-Defense Forces are ready to deal with any contingency just in case,” Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told a Lower House security committee session on Thursday.
“But we are also aware of remarks by Mr. Tillerson, who said (the U.S.) will first try to resolve problems through sanctions and diplomacy,” Onodera said.
Asked if the North’s plan would meet those conditions — and if the SDF’s anti-missile defense systems would be allowed to intercept ballistic missiles — Onodera declined to answer the question during Thursday’s Diet session.
He did say, though, if the U.S. ability to protect Japan is feared to be significantly damaged, Japanese Ageis destroyers, equipped with anti-missile SM-3 rockets, might be allowed to attempt to shoot down a North Korean missile, Onodera said.
“You cannot rule out the possibility that (such a situation) might affect the chance of Japan’s survival,” he said.
