The Japanese government says North Korea has launched a missile in the direction of northern Japan.

The Japanese government has warned that a North Korean missile is headed toward the Tohoku region at the northern end of the country, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.

NHK also reported that Japan took no action to shoot down the projectile.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that it appeared that a ballistic missile was fired and that it flew over the country.

 

A South Korean military official told NBC News that the projectile was fired around 5:57 a.m. local time on Tuesday.

A senior U.S. intelligence official told NBC that this would be the first missile test to pass over Japan on a high altitude trajectory. U.S. Pacific Command said it's expected that the missile will splash down at 6:29 a.m. local time.

The Japanese government has urged people in Tohoku to take refuge in solid buildings or underground shelters, according to NHK.

On Monday, U.S. and Japanese servicemen concluded joint exercises in Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost major island.

Japan has done nothing except crying and cursing

China has done nothing except crying and cursing

US has done nothing except crying and cursing

SK now tells everyone they need SK's approval to war against their crazy neighbor

Looking at the map. It would be hard for NK not to fire over some part of Japan, if they wanted a rocket to land in the ocean...

They could drop the missile in the Sea of Japan like they usually do.Fliying over Japan itself is an escalation and a provocation.

It's always the same every year.  South Korea and US hold wargames.  NK protests.  Their protest goes nowhere so they build up arms to protest.  The Americans call them to the table for "peace talks".  NK ask them to stop the war games and they will stop their arms development.  Americans say f you.  You don't tell us what to do.  We don't give in to dictators.  That's why there's no progress.

I'm a proud American but I don't approve of this war games.  What the f are we doing all the way over there training South Koreans and Japan for war?  What if the Russians go to Mexico and hold military exercise every year to get the Mexicans ready for war?  Let's face it, this isn't war games.  It's a military training exercise.  After Panama, Iraq, and Afghanistan, there's a reason why NK are scared.  Having nukes will be their only hope of survival.

Yes they are training for eventual war with a country lead by a insane man who probably will have nuclear weapons systems  capabilities soon and very willing to use them

You really think so? In 2015 Japanese military legislation was changed partly because of this threat.

I am guessing rice aid to North Korea from Japan is cancelled for sure . At times they send 500,000 tonnes.

We are still at war with NK. The prevailing winds will make it hard to use nukes on NK as Japan, SK, and China will get the fall out.

A conventional war with the north will be a disaster for SK as too many live near the DMZ.

Looking at it from every angle there seems to be just one solution can't Nuke em Can't fight them in conventional war.

More pressure on China, a trade war would maybe do it with Japans SK help.

Diplomatic pressure has not had an iota of help but china can stop them in a whimper.

It's telling that the US doesn't send in those BMD ships to shoot down all these missles, supposedly we've had the capability to do just that for a decade yet they've never done it. They've sent ships to the border of NK to do it, but then didn't do it, and still don't do it over a decade later, wtf?

Maybe these systems aren't really working as intended.

China is playing a double game. They endorse sanctions but don't enforce them. China loves that N.Korea stirs up the shit, China has been supporting them and paying them to do so for 60 years. Anything that annoys the US  is good for China.
