Japans Calls For Attack On North Korea, Tensions Mount After Shelling

Debkafile is now reporting that Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan called Obama and demanded that the United States, Japan, and South Korea attack North Korea!

Prime Minister Naoto Kan called President Barak Obama urgently in the wake of the North Korean artillery attack on South Korea’s Yeonpyeong island near the Yellow Sea border early Tuesday, Nov. 23 and demanded a US-South Korean-Japanese military reprisal. Two South Korean marines were killed and 17 injured in the attack.

He also demanded that the UN Security Council be convened immediately on the crisis. He put the same demands to South Korean President Lee Myung-bak in another call. Naoto Kan then ordered his ministers to prepare for “unexpected events.”

Washington said it is watching the situation but is not militarily involved after strongly condemning the attack and calling for an end to belligerence.

debkafile’s military sources report that the Korean clash has prompted a special alert in the US Seventh Fleet headquarters at Yokosuka in Japan, together with the naval forces stationed there including the USS George Washington aircraft carrier

Tensions are mounting after a North Korean artillery attack left at least 14 South Koreans injured and 2 dead. The South was apparently conducting a routine drill near the near the area that was attacked.

Talk of nuclear redeployment and swift retaliation has lead some to believe that war is imminent. On Monday, before the artillery attack, South Korea officials denied that they were considering redeploying U.S. tactical nuclear weapon in respond to the Norths nuclear aggression.


South Korea on Tuesday denied it was considering redeployment of U.S. tactical nuclear weapons on its territory, watering down a sensitive remark by its defense chief who raised the possibility a day ago.

In response to North Korea’s revelation of a new uranium enrichment facility, Defense Minister Kim Tae-yong had raised the possibility on Monday, telling a lawmaker who asked if South Korea would consider such redeployment that the government “will review what you said.”

South Korea has scrambled fighter jets to the region in anticipation of another attack. Al Jazeera is reporting that officials are evacuating fisherman from the island that was initially attacked.

      It is just a matter of time before North Korea lets the shit hit the fan. They have nothing to loose, they can’t even feed their people. If they push the button, we need to annihilate them once and for all.

      LOL, you’re funny.

    • andronaonda

      You annihilate them and you WILL SIGN YOUR OWN DEATH WARRANT..!!
      Simple as that… No one will win with this war. China will not let it happen due to the refugees flowing across their border area with the North. If America, Japn or Sth Korea push the Nth into firing a nuke.. not only would it be the end of those four countries (US ,China, Sth & Nth) but you would destory many inocent countries like mine.. Australia! This is just more dregs still left over from American imperialism from 60 years ago. Again another positive in print left on this world by the great bullshitting U.S.A!!… Thanks America! Thank you from all of the worlds peaceful nations!!

      They will cfrush them without using nukes… From the sea and air they will make that island a parking lot…

      Obama is a wuss. Hence, he will never attack North Korea. You can count on him dithering on such a bold decision. It is not in his DNA to man-up and fight. He will end up paying the North Koreans billions of dollars as past administrations have done. Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize (LOL! Suckers) for calming down the North Koreans with mucho dinero. Count on the Obama administration to do likewise. Maybe Obama will win a second Nobel Peace Prize for continuing to be a wuss.

      Fools. North Korea is under the protection of their very big brother China. That is why they can do all their provocations. China made it very clear to world leaders during the Korean war, that they will not tolerate any foreign troops in North Korea and any nation that attacks North Korea is taking a very big risk.

      You are absolutely right. We should sit back and let the North Koreans attack us whenever they feel like it and maybe ask them mot to do it. There is no reason for any of us to have a backbone. That wouldn’t be fitting with the politically correct nonsense and the stupidity of allowing rebel states and terrorists to kill, maim, and murder us.
      Fear of standing up for oneself is why the sheep are always led to slaughter.

      Thanks America for making China a super power! The west only have themselves to blame exploiting cheap labour in China has made them a rich powerful nation, western industry have invested heavily in manufacturing and gave them state of the art technology which they will use against us. Take Apple; practically every product is made in China. When I’m about to purchase I look where the product is made.

      Mr. Conservatism………:

      If you are capable of reading carefully, you would have noticed that I never said we should let North Korea attack us. I only explained why they have humiliated us over the years with no repercussions from our leadership. I can guarantee you we would attack North Korea if Israel was being attacked, because we generally put Israel’s interests above our own.
