  1. NORTH Korea’s missile launch has been condemned by Japan as the island nation prepares for the worst.

    Kim Jong-un fired yet another missile into the Sea of Japan as he continues his quest for a nuclear ICBM capable of striking the US.

    Japanese authorities blasted the latest launch as “repeated provocation” from North Korea.

    Tokyo defence forces are readying the nation’s missile batteries amid fears of more strikes from Kim.

    Pictures today from the Japanese capital show a PAC-3 surface-to-air launcher defence system in position amid fears of attack by North Korea.

    Japan is a close ally of both the US and South Korea – and joined this year for the first time drills practicingsinking North Korea’s submarines in the Korean Peninsula.

    US President Donald Trump is talking up military action against Kim as his Secretary of StateRex Tillerson admitted war is “on the table” on North Korea.

    Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said: “We absolutely cannot tolerate North Korea's repeated provocative acts and have strongly protested this act.”

    Orders were issued last year for Japanese naval destroyers and anti-ballistic missile Patriot batteries have been ordered to shoot down incoming missiles.

    Japan’s military remains on alert and Tokyo is considering a “preemptive strike” against North Korea.

    Last month, Japanese Democratic Party head Hiroshi Amazu argued that they should have the right to defend themselves.

    He said: "Japan can't just wait until it's destroyed.

    "It's legally possible for Japan to strike an enemy base that's launching a missile at us, but we don't have the equipment or capability."

    Japan is the only nation in the world to have experience the horror of nuclear war firsthand when the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Tensions are flaring with North Korea after repeated missile and nuclear tests, constant war threats from Pyongyang, and the murder of Kim Jong-nam in Malaysia.

    Kim's former deputy ambassador in London –Thae Yong-ho – warned North Korea is capable "anything"and is prepared to launch a nuclear attack.
