You obviously do not understand North Korea....they hate Japan. Despite the US involvement during the Korean War, all that devastation, the US military presence that has prevented a forced reunification, North Korea has used the Japanese threat of return to the peninsula as the boogie man to hold its people hostage for more than 60 years. Without Japan, North Korea's leadership would have to create a "Japan" to maintain their grip on power. As for nuclear provocations, do not rely on US intelligence to know where the bomb research, factories, and weapon's storage are at...Japan is on its own.

The three foreign ministers of Japan, China, and S. Korea are now meeting in Tokyo. I wonder if the rocket launch was also meant to send them a message.

yeah, stepping on the world stage to hide behind others while demanding other nations not instigate trouble (while you in other ways do) is REALLY going to get NK to step down. Duh. Wonder if the sub-missile test was enough of an exclamation point on what they think of Japan's statements/demands.

Complete nonsense. North Korea's "hate" as expressed by and maintained among the population by the government is aimed at South Korea and the United States. Pay attention to the news and see how often North Korea throw vitriol at these two countries, compared to Japan which is ancient history to them compared to the Korean War.
