Threat From North Korea Increasing

Japan’s defense minister reportedly said Monday that the threat from North Korea is both “unprecedented” and “imminent.”

Itsunori Onodera pushed for “different responses” as he spoke with Defense Secretary James Mattis and South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo, The Associated Press reported.

Onodera’s comments came during discussions in the Philippines.

“The country has steadfastly improved it nuclear and missiles capability,” Onodera said.
“The threat posed by North Korea has grown to the unprecedented, critical and imminent level,” he added.

The meeting between the officials comes ahead of President Trump’s trip to the region next month.

North Korea in July conducted two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests and said last month that it had successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb that could be placed on an ICBM.

    Take him out seal team

      The hard part of “taking him out” isn’t the killing, it’s the finding and tracking part. Not as easy as you might think, especially in a closed society like the DPRK. Plus, it is most likely a suicide mission for the operators who get the mission. Getting into the DPRK undetected is hard enough, but getting out after you have assasinated their “dear leader” will be nearly impossible.

    We don’t need nukes we can take NK out with conventional weapons. Nukes are for cowards.
