Useful. We need an iron dome to keep checks on the rogue nation as sadly the current US administration is unable of protecting even themselves

Kimmy looks cold. He should stick to reviewing his greatest family missile launches at home.

Dang. They both look pretty well fed on that photo,

If it hasn't already covertly, Japan needs to break away from its passivists stance and take a more preemptive position in possessing nuclear weapons.

Tough cookies for So. Korea or China as they will enabibly whine about Japan's not so proud moments of brutal occupation. However any backlash for China/So. Korea are more aimed at local anti Japan consumption and has no practical value in the modern world.

No. Korea would be less aggressive about flexing it steroidal muscle knowing that Japan would respond instantly to a nuclear provocation and put an end No Korea, leaving no land for a dictator to dictate,

I can only say this, just watch what is happening around us,

IF Ukraine still has it's nuke's it will still be one solid nations with NO occupiers.

If Hamas had the Nuke"s it would have saved 20,000 plus lives.

The so called New World Order demands that you better arm yourself to the teeth or lose your Land, People, and most of all DIGNITY.

NOW a days, I honestly believe that every nation should possess some sort Nuke's, it seems it is the only option that will keep aggressors and invaders at bay.

Yeah, what could go wrong with Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthis, and ISIS having nukes.

And guess what. Major shift. As of today. 72% of South Koreans want the nuke. That is what is coming next.

Despite the history of saber rattling and belligerence from Pyongyang and the Kim family, it wasn’t until November 2023 that the South Korean president spoke openly of the need for the Republic of Korea to either return to American nuclear weapons or commence an indigenous nuclear weapons program. And super quickly. South Korea is ready to arm itself. This is a big deal.

"We will have warning data on North Korean missiles much faster, and be able to secure enough time to respond effectively," Shin said in an interview with broadcaster MBN on Monday.

There is no effective response to an ICBM unless, turning on the sirens 20 seconds earlier is what is meant as ‘effective’ ?

"Such a scheme for a tripartite data-sharing mechanism led by the U.S. is evidently a dangerous military action to drive the regional situation to a more serious phase of confrontation," the North's state media said last week.

Not the response that we wanted to hear.

What will be the next phase?

All out nuclear war?

Almost looks like a nice family outing to watch a fireworks display. But not.

Japan shhould not partake in the demolishing of North Korea.

Man! The hypocrisy in North Korea continues. It looks like the Kimmy family is "living high on hog" whilst his people continue to suffer as money is wasted on his missle defence.

This isn't a comedy site !

The North Korea nuclear threat is real

I suggest more sincerity

You're right, we need to get right on this and do.... what was it again?

In translation, Japan will be destroyed because USA lost the Korean War.

Kim is a loose cannon and very difficult to deal with

I think he is a pretty solid character who cares for his people. Never been there so no first hand information, but unlike Palestine, they have help from China. They just want peace and no sanctions.

Thanks for the chuckle. North Korea appears black from space because they have perfected living without the lightbulb.

This must be the new Chinese propaganda that the CCP is thousands of years old and defeated the Mongols and in fact every invader.

However what will the tracking do to intercept ?

Speed it up a lot. Before the agreement the US Army operated to AN-TPY2 radars in Japan and one more in South Korea that is part of the THAAD battery there. Because of political sensitivities between Japan and South Korea those radars were not linked together in real time. Why does this matter? One radar tracking a missile takes more time to calculate its trajectory than three radars operating in unison. The two radars in Japan were faster than one but not ideal. Being able to triangulate in real time gives an intercept solution much more quickly than one radar operating on its own.

This also means US Navy, ROK Navy and JMSDF destroyers equipped with AN-SPY1 series radars and Aegis battle management systems will also provide data in real time improving accuracy of any missile tracks. Patriot had over 100 intercepts in Saudi Arabia and was pretty well proven before it was used in Ukraine. THAAD has also been used successfully in UAE against Houthi missiles. The systems work.
