North Korea’s little ruler has played the fool it seems. North Korea threatened to sink Japan and said that Japan no longer needed to exist near them. If that was not provocative enough, the little leader test fired missiles right over Japan on two different occasions.
Question: What would the mighty United States do if another country fired missiles over Hawaii? Wouldn’t they be shot down immediately? Would not the U.S. congress declare war on that nation without any delay? Would not death and destruction be rained down upon that nation?
Don’t you see how very hostile North Korea’s little man is? Do not think for even one second, that Japan is relaxing and forgetting what happened.
Let us consider historical facts. Japan’s empire ruled much of mainland China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Myanmar, East Timor, New Guinea, Guam, Wake Island and many more Pacific Islands around the time of World War II. They had an army of approximately 5 million. They had at least 10 aircraft carriers not counting battleships and destroyers. They had over 3000 aircraft including the famous Japanese Zero. The Japanese were fierce fighters for their emporer, who was viewed as a god.
Japanese military prowess is not confined to World War II. The Bushido Samarai was a way of life for many in Japan. This warrior class lasted for hundreds of years. Japan has a very strong military past.
Japan has a very strong industrial complex and is the third leading economy in the world. By comparison, North Korea was ranked 113th in the world by the UN in 2015. Japan is not a complacent nation, and you can be sure, that they are burning the midnight oil, working on their own solution to North Korea’s unnecessary belligerence.
Japan has been considering changing its passivist constitution for quite sometime now. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s party just won in elections again and they have a two-thirds super majority. Abe has promised to deal strongly with North Korea.
Let me tell you something my friends: South Korea may not stand up to North Korea, but Japan is the wrong country to be firing missiles over. If North Korea continues to agitate Japan, the result will most likely be Japan reclaiming a strong offensive military capability and possibly even going nuclear, then it will be the North Koreans who start to tremble. It will be China, who wished they had slapped North Korea down while there was still time. It will be Russia who is not so happy about such a change of events.
Should Japan rise up in this fashion, it might be North Koreans fearfully watching missiles splash into the Sea of Japan just off the eastern coast of North Korea. It might be Japan taking target practice at Kim Jong un dolls floating in the Yellow Sea just off of Korea’s western coast.
I think little man Kim Jong un had better rethink his strategy, if he wants to continue to rule North Korea. Proverbs 22:3, “A prudent man forsees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”
