The old lovable rogue Nation was up to their old tricks again yesterday. Another missile over Japan and out into the open sea. No damage done at all. But the US want to respond. The question is ' should the US do anything at all '? It is North Korea showing off. I think everybody knows the US could wipe them off the face of the Earth. But we also know that any missile can be shot down from the sky as well. They have the technology these days. If you are awake of what North Korea is going to be doing why not sit back and take down what they put up into the sky? Some might say that this would be seen as an act of war. You warn them so many times and they don't listen is it not a show of strength back them? Look what we can do. Every time they fire off a missile, simply take it out of the sky. Saying you are doing so for the protection of the countries around North Korea.
What are the other options? Sanctions? Have not worked so far. Won't ever work. Only drive North Korea on. An attack on all their armed bases? This might spark something much more serious off. China have sat on the bench so far. Few words about how wrong the missile firing is. They are the hardest country to read. Will they sit back and let an all out attack happen? My coin would be in the air on that one. Russia would have a few things to say for certain. What if Russia and China got together? China with the promise of making Russia powerful again.
So who does what and when?
