    Shinzo Abe has won reelection in the Japanese election. Abe called the poll specifically in reaction to the threat from Pyongyang. He asked for, and has now won, a mandate to change the pacifist nature of Japan's constitution. The result is being described as a crushing victory.

    Japan has a formidable military but has not fired a shot in anger since 1945. That seems to be about to change.

    When a foreign nation fires missiles over your sovereign territory who can blame them ? And now as an Ali to the USA it`s in both their interests for Japan to do so especially in that region with China also expanding their influence in the South China Seas.

    Interesting times lay ahead.

    Good for Japan.

    NK needs dealing with. Cant have missiles flying over your head from some bloated, deluded nutter with a bad hairdo and be willing to just take it.

    Here's hoping NK's downfall is within my lifetime.
