The New York Times: Reports " In Tokyo on Friday, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, said the latest North Korean missile flew for about 45 minutes. The flight time suggests that the missile may have a range greater than any the North has tested previously.
Lets Get Real:
The REAL worry for China is that Japan would go nuclear with the help of the US, the Trump Oval might have to threaten China that its ancient enemy will get the bomb, weather they like or not. Thus China would have two problems, it would have the North Korean on its border that could start a War at any time and the the threat that South Korea and Japan could go nuclear. ON the Chinese side neither is a great option, thus they are stalling, waiting to see what happens and hoping nothing happens. The worry is that Trump might want to divert attention from home for going after North Korea, as President he has a lot more power in foreign policy, thus the Democrats must be careful that they do not push Trump to take action in Asia.
