It's the word 'first' in the thread title that gives tha game away. As far as I know, NK does not want to attack Japan. I heard today that Vietnam is building another nuclear reactor: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2005-10/19/content_3648626.htm I know what you're thinking "WTF, Vietnam has a nuclear reactor already!" Indeed they have and the US says zero on the subject. Others have posted on the unpopularity of the Japanese in Asia and this shouldn't be underestimated. They have an absolute arse for a President and will no doubt use any excuse to remilitarise. The US and UK are encouraging this as they want to play a foul on China.
