“Japanese citizens in several areas have been urged to take cover.”

That is poor staging! Last time Japanese people admitted on the media that they did not even know WHERE they could possibly have taken cover…

DPRK is sending signals to the world that it will not back down until the Outlaw US empire leaves the Korean Peninsula for the good

At that altitude the flight does not transgress Japanese territory; it’s in international airspace. So the report that this was a threat to Japan is wrong, although it definitely was a statement of warning to Japan. More clearly, it was a statement to the US that N. Korea can knock out Guam, the source of US air force bombers that threaten N. Korea. What this will do is force the US to accept the Russian and Chinese offers to mediate, as there is no way the US is going to attack N. Korea, as Steve Bannon has made clear.

So the sanctioning to save Uncle Schlomo’s face was a complete waste of time. No surprise there.

Starving N.K to death or corner them makes things utterly worse, This is not the way to treat your neigbour now, do the right thing. Support them and demand US to sign a peace treaty already! It’s long overdue.

Kim should calm down already. He made his point. His tantrums go too far.
This is a vicious circle that must STOP spinning.
