Can’t Japan do anything towards North Korea?
According to many media, North Korea launched the missile over Japan. I think that they aimed at the direction of not south but east deliberately because they didn’t want to stimulate the US any more. To date, it doesn’t seem that the US military move forward in consequence of North Korea’s action. I don’t want to admit it, but North Korea has gone as planned so far.
Come to think of it, such a situation is very shame for Japan. The missile North Korea launched with resentment went beyond Japanese islands. If Japan were other countries like the US, Russia, and China, they would decide to fight back. The reason why Japan didn’t do nothing is that they don’t have any means of fighting back at all. I believe that some left wing who are against every militarization in Japan should be worried about the current situation from the bottom of their heart.
The more I think of it, the more I feel that Japan is surrounded by a very dangerous situation now. Japan is one of allies of the US, and in fact there are several US military bases in Japan. However, it doesn’t mean for the US to try to stand by Japan hundred-percent because president Trump is unpredictable person. I believe that the Japanese have to consider their own national defense.
