Nukes of America and Russia are no use while they become very useful for North Korea.

This is from the Daily Express UK--http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/775821/japan-alert-level-north-korea-missile-launch-test --Oh how the western media like their headlines. I have family in the UK and this sort of media hype can cause unnecessary worry. Why is it, and it's been well documented throughout all conflicts, that the media acts like a war mongering machine, instead of encouraging dialogue and peaceful means.

@minello7: Are you suggesting Japanese people should be kept blind on news relating N Korea because it keeps scaring UK people?

The UN is a useless entity. The only way to treat aggression is not by lying down but by standing up to the bully and punch the fat boy in his belly. War with North Korea is only a matter of time and its best to take them out now without holding back. NK civilians will surely die by the millions in that conflict but war knows no boundaries and innocents always perish but this NK aggressive behaviour cannot be tolerated any longer.

So to prevent them from doing that evil thing, we should do that evil thing.

You realize that makes us exactly what we are criticizing them for, right?

Ahh, no big deal then. Just some innocent civilians.

this NK aggressive behaviour cannot be tolerated any longer.

Yes, because so many people have died as a result of this behavior, right? Right???

@toshiko, no I am not suggesting anything regarding the misinformed Japanese people or the scaremongering the British people, obviously you didn't understand my comment. I read the Japan Times, the Asahi Shimbun also the article here all the articles were written without using panic rhetoric, just the facts and what Japan is proposing to do. Now that is keeping the Japanese people well informed of what their government is doing, without causing panic or alarm to its people. Please imagine Japanese living overseas and they see articles that are fabricating about truth, do you not think that to would cause unnecessary stress to those people and the family they have living here. My argument is with the western media or the media in general. Headlines are what sells news, even if it isn't the truth.
