saber-rattling from an unlikely source

This is one of the most surprising things I've seen in a long time (since the last time Donald Rumsfeld said something sincere, in fact). Reports that JAPAN of all countries was considering whether they could legally attack North Korean missile sites. You know, pre-emptively like the US did in Iraq.

Japan hasn't done anything offensive in over sixty years (not counting foisting Hello Kitty and karaoke onto the rest of the world, that is) Guess they really were upset by those missile tests that Kim Jong Il set off to honor the Fourth of July.
