Default North Korea fires missile over Japanese territory

In what might become the greatest threat to world peace since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 the rogue state of North Korea has fired a missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido. One wonders how this backward state of 25 millions, where two in five people are malnourished, has ever acquired nuclear technology, and I would suggest that behind this once again is Russian President Vladimir Putin, following his annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea in 2014, which plunged the world into diplomatic crisis from which it has still not recovered. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-41078187

Communist China supports N.K. They use it to keep us distracted and as a buffer between China and the west. If N.K. gets too crazy, China will step in and take it over. This last missile may be the last straw. Japan is very protective of its territory and N.K. might as well as declared war.
BTW here is some trivia: Japan believes that all of Korea is Japanese territory. They fought and won a war with Russia over it.

I'm not sure China will be able to step in; they have already withdrawn their observers from the missile tests. From what I have read Japan annexed Korea illegally in 1910 and there's still a dispute as to whether the sea between them should be called the Sea of Japan or the East Sea, but I doubt there's any dispute over territory now.

The situation is getting quite out of hand. I fear the worst without the intervention of China in cutting off the oil supply. http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/...cid=spartanntp
