Japan Ready to “Take Action” Against North Korea After Missile Test

North Korea’s consistent provocations against Japan and her allies has finally come to a head in the region, as Japanese officials prepare to make moves against the reclusive nation.

Kim Jong Un and his regime have refused to comply with international orders to cease all testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear weapon technology, instead increasing the frequency at which they attempt to launch their crude rockets.  Often, these devices splash down in the Sea of Japan, in waters that are exclusively under the control of the Japanese government.

Now, as the United States, China, and Russia have all begun amassing massive ordinances of armaments in the region in anticipation of Kim Jong Un pushing the global allegiance over the edge, Japan has issued a statement relaying their own undying commitment to ending the nonsense being exuded by the Hermit Kingdom.

“Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to take action against North Korea after Pyongyang’s missile test on Sunday ended in the Sea of Japan.

“Abe addressed the situation in a brief televised address on Monday: ‘As we agreed at the recent G7, the issue of North Korea is a top priority for the international community,’ according to Reuters.

“‘Working with the United States, we will take specific action to deter North Korea.’

“North Korea tested a short-range Scud ballistic missile off its eastern coast at 4:40 p.m. ET (5:40 a.m. Monday Korea time). The missile flew for six minutes until it landed in the Sea of Japan.

“US officials told Fox News a North Korean MiG fighter jet crashed near the launch site of the latest surface-to-air missile test.”

Japan and South Korea have long been considered the primary targets of North Korea’s ballistic missile program, simply for the fact that the weapons being produced by Kim Jong Un’s army have been crude at best.  Of course, the ultimate goal of North Korea would be the nuclear annihilation of the United States, as evidenced by a plethora of their propaganda films.  Given the poor track record of Pyongyang in being able to successfully launch weapons capable of even reaching Japan, it is highly unlikely that a missile strike originating from the Korean Peninsula would find its way to the U.S. West Coast.
