According to FNC, Japan is considering a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. Yet, oddly enough, Japan accepted a request by China to back off their push in the U.N. Security Council.
I ASSuME because China has sent a “high-profile delegation” to N. Korea.
However, Chief Cabinet Secretary Shinzo Abe stated that “If we accept that there is no other option to prevent an attack … there is the view that attacking the launch base of the guided missiles is within the constitutional right of self-defense. We need to deepen discussion.”
Meanwhile the U.N. is doing more of the same, nothing. China and Russia only want a U.N. Presidential statement, not a Security Council resolution. Since they both have veto power in the U.N. either we get them on board or forget about it.
Do you see now why I say the U.N. has long outlived its usefulness?
I foresee another unilateral action by the U.S. in our future. At least I hope so, because this cannot stand. When N. Korea completely ignores Chinas warning not to fire the missiles, things have gone from bad to worse.
