However, Daniel Pinkston, a professor of International Relations at Troy University in Seoul, said it would be a total waste of North Korea’s military assets to attack Japan. “Pyongyang doesn’t care about killing Japanese civilians, especially since it would serve no military or political purpose,” Pinkston said.

Are you 100% sure?

ARE YOU?

After North Korea’s officials and media repeatedly threaten to attack Japan[1, 2]  (they said “sink Japan into the ocean”) and launch missiles into the US bases in Japan?

Japan’s Nuclear Moment

Geopolitical trends have combined to open a window of opportunity for Japan to become a nuclear state.

If Japan wanted to develop nuclear weapons, there would be no better moment than now to start. As the North Korean regime grows desperate to get a more generous ransom against its nuclear program, the threat it poses to Tokyo is multiplying. Last week Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, warned that North Korea is preparing the capability to launch missiles carrying the chemical weapon sarin against Tokyo.

It’s true that Japanese society is largely against nuclear weapons, not only because of the fact that Japan is the only country to have suffered a nuclear attack, but also due to the general isolationist and pacifist political identity of the majority of Japanese.

..

Today, perhaps for a first time since the end of the World War II, such a window of opportunity has opened in front of Japan and has offered Tokyo the chance to take the matter of its national security into its own hands.

Thanks, but No. Japan do not want to develop nuclear weapons.

End of discussion.

I mean..

Japanese (probably 99%) won’t even think about going nuclear as long as Japan-US alliance exists and works.

Japanese know “Japan’s going nuclear” will do more harm than good for the regional stability and security.

Japanese constitution prohibits it (can’t even have an army!) and it is super difficult to change it.

No Japanese (including politicians and media outlets) are talking about it.

Before even consider having nuclear weapons, Japan should change its constitution to have its army to protect itself (failed to do so, however).

Don’t make “Nuclear armed Japan” a diplomatic “card” to play with.

Xi teaches Trump: Korea actually used to be a part of China.

 

[Xi] then went into the history of China and Korea. Not North Korea, Korea. And you know, you’re talking about thousands of years …and many wars. And Korea actually used to be a part of China.

Haha. So true. Well, more accurately, Korea had been a vassal state of China empire. (Like I explained here) If not, how do you explain the historical evidences such as  Yeongeunmun and Independence Gate in Korea? There are whole lot more evidences.

Of course, Koreans or Korean descends deny it. It is a taboo for Koreans. But history is history and the fact is the fact.
