*N Korea 'readies' rockets to strike US bases
The war of words came a day after US intelligence chiefs said North Korea probably had missiles capable of attacking America's west coast as well as one or two nuclear missiles. Mr Ishiba said: "Our nation will use military force as a self-defence measure if North Korea starts to resort to arms against Japan."
*U.S. flies bombers over South Korea : The mission by the planes, which can carry both conventional and nuclear weapons, "demonstrates the United States' ability to conduct long range, precision strikes quickly and at will," the statement said.
The U.S. military's announcement earlier this month that it was flying B-52 bombers over South Korea to participate in the routine exercises prompted an angry reaction from the regime of Kim Jong Un, which has unleashed a torrent of threats in the past few weeks.
Anyway so too China is seeing the same thing and her goal is to keep us away not to see us instigated to make a preemptive attack that would require China to get involved. It would throw off all China's plans to make her the number one power in the world.
In the end I don't care what they say. This is a confrontation long in the works. MacArthur was right wanting to go right through North Korea then China back than because it would eventually have to be done. There is a lot behind the scenes to be concerned with here and yes China is our banker but they are over stepping their boundaries.
