Well, at least according to North Korea News.

Japan's Reinvasion Scheme under Fire
Pyongyang, September 6 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries decided on the policy of including the appropriation for researches into introduction of unmanned reconnaissance planes in the 2006 fiscal year budget estimation and launched the new-type Aegis ship Atago. Commenting on this Minju Joson Tuesday observes: This indicates that Japan has pushed forward to a considerable extent the preparations for overseas aggression, the reinvasion of Korea in particular. The Japanese reactionaries openly blare that the unmanned reconnaissance planes are aimed to "collect information about north Korea" in a high altitude flight within the air defense identification sphere. This means that Japan is making preparations for neutralizing the DPRK's capacity of retaliatory strike and securing the capability of a preemptive attack on it, pursuant to the U.S. drive at the establishment of a missile defense system.

Such view is made more plausible by the fact that sea-launched interceptor missiles are soon to be mounted on the new-type Aegis ship which Japan has built to deploy at Maizuru base close to Korea.

Japan has so far zealously capitalized on the U.S. Asia strategy to invade the DPRK and has stepped up in real earnest its conversion into a military power and completion of the preparations for reinvasion, citing the DPRK as a pretext. It is the intention of the Japanese reactionaries to build up public opinion worldwide about the fictitious "threat" from the DPRK in a bid to find a justification of the conversion of Japan into a military power and, at the same time, disarm the DPRK and neutralize its self-defensive armed forces and thus realize the dream of reinvasion of Korea without difficulty.

With nothing can they cover up their sinister intention, although they are putting up the slogans of combating "threat of aggression" and "threat of attack" from the DPRK to conceal the reactionary nature of their moves to make Japan a military power. They would be well advised to see and judge the matter from a realistic point of view and behave with reason instead of wasting time and efforts over the utterly infeasible matter.



Ah yes, North Korea propoganda. Always good for a nervous laugh.

I feel like Japan invading North Korea would go very, very poorly.

Yep, the Japanese have US equipment/training and have licensed factories making "domestic" versions of US equipment. They'll steamroll those broke, hungry, and aid-dependent Commies eisily.

WWIII would start.

Hmm, the realistic chances of China ever becoming a enemy are infinitely small. The three biggest investors into China booming economy are The United States, Taiwan, and Germany. In that order...

I present my case as follows.

1. China is not the new cold war Era Russia. The US and China are intimately tied in economic relations, and if you hop on over to www.bea.gov you'll see that China exports to our country have increased exponentially for the last decade. The Chinese love capitalism more then anyone, I just visitied Shanghai 2 years ago and it's the most decadent city on the planet! Some say it's crazier (in a good way) then Hong Kong in the 80s, and Hong Kong was the asian party metropolis of choice for a lonnnnng time.

2. The only thing that will prompt China to attack is a declaration of independence from Taiwan. And that grows increasingly improbable, as more then 70% prefer increased peace, or the status quo. Taiwan in fact, has been pouring massive amounts of money into capital investment into China to bank on the fact that former communists are easily trained (same language) and work for dirt... Just for reference, the rich and educated of northern Taiwan overwhelmingly vote for the conservative party, which seeks peace and reconciliation with Taiwan. The "liberal" party there is the one that seeks independence, and basically bribes the ethnic minority and poor farmers. They managed to win by a extremely narrow margin because they used a flawed electoral system similiar to the US.

3. You are MUCH more likely to face off against the Chinese in the open market then on a battlefield. As China's middle class grows and their business continue to thrive, it is perceived both here and abroad that the hardline communist rhetoric drop and human rights will increase. There is no way that China can be a open and capitlastic society and still be run by old school hardline state rules.


Cliff Notes: China isn't the USSR, because they love money and partying, and all of Wal-Mart comes from China. China's main threat to America is that of ecnomic competition, so time to upgrade those professional skills.

That's because both the Chinese commies and the USSR had their back. Nowadays, the pathetic North Koreans have to squeel like piggies just to get heating oil and food shipments.

Can you beleive that North Korea had a way higher standard of living then the South in the 70s and 80s thanks to massive aid from Russia? My, how times have changed.

As the rest of the world becomes more dependent on each other and trades more and more, NK stays hiding under its rock and its people starve...

Too bad for them!

My God, there are other posters out there with something insightful to contribute!

Thanks!

The North Koreans kidnap people in Japan, shoot missles over Japan, and threaten Japan with nuclear weapons, and then they wonder why the Japs are starting to get tired of it?

That and the current Taiwanese president staged an "assassination" attempt to win sympathy votes. The current VP is the one who is always screaming her bloody head off to declare independence. Did you know the current Taiwan leadership were like basically the "hippies" of the time who were imprisoned by the conservative party for wanting to declare independence from China?
