Japan is toying with a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. This is very interesting, because Japan really doesn't come off as a huge military power.
The Japanese, whose police force more notably carries around notebooks instead of guns (unless that has changed the last time I checked). The Japanese who are obsessed with Western Culture, but place a weighted importance on manners and ettiquette. A culture rich in color, customs, and sex-crazed teenagers.
I just have a hard time imagining the Japanese, after a nice little tea ceremony of sorts, politely saying their good-byes to family, donning fatigues and then going to open a can of whoopass on that Short-Bus Dictator of North Korea. I suppose when they really set their mind to it, they can do quite a bit of damage in a relatively short time, as proven by history.
Maybe they still have a lot of pent-up rage from World War 2 they need to get rid of.
North Korea is toast.
