On September 14, 2017, North Korea launched yet another ICBM over Japan, and vowed to sink Japan into the sea with a nuclear missile.
This is outrageous and unacceptable for many reasons. Japan has minimal defenses, and has intentionally de-militarized. I guarantee that North Korea would be wiped off the map if they ever attacked Japan. In fact, I would not be surprised if Japan already has some nukes to blast North Korea with.
It seems quite obvious that North Korea is DETERMINED to provoke an attack upon itself. I personally think China is behind this scheme. Other than the plan of Crazy Maxine Waters who proposes giving NK anything they want.. what other options are there to stop NK other than to attack them?
My personal theory is that North Korea has given up threatening the USA for the moment.. because the USA is not taking the bait. NK is acting like a 2 year old child who won't stop their tantrum.. while the adult USA is ignoring NK for lack of being a credible threat.
However, because of Japan's lack of defenses, NK is a credible threat to Japan.. and that seems to be what NK is up to now.
Also.. Japan might not publicly want it known that they are militaristic.. but Japan is fantastic at manufacturing high tech things - while China is fantastic at manufacturing garbage that "kinda" works. Perhaps Japan is manufacturing cruise missles and MOABS to be used on North Korea. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/09/14/north-korea-fires-missile-from-pyongyang-south-korea-media-reports.html
