Japan ready to shoot down Nokor rocket; AFP on alert


MISSILE THREAT (Far left) Two Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force’s Aegis guided-missile destroyers, Kongo (front) and Chokai (rear) head out to sea from their base in Sasebo in this photo taken on March 28, 2009. Japan is readying its missile defense systems to shoot down a North Korean rocket if it threatens the country. Inset, a rocket lifts off from its launch pad in Musudan-ri, North Korea, in this April 5, 2009 image from KRT video.

The Philippine military on Friday said it had “intensified” its monitoring of North Korea’s plan to launch a long-range rocket next month, as Japan readied its missile defense systems to shoot down the rocket if it threatens Japanese territory.

The move by North Korea’s new leadership has set off alarm bells across the region. The Philippines is calling for help from the United States to monitor the rocket, part of which is expected to splash down just 190 kilometers east of northern Philippines.

A special adviser to US President Barack Obama said North Korea would face a “strong response” if it launched its new rocket despite international calls to desist.

“If they go ahead anyway, we will want to work with our allies and partners for a strong response,” Gary Samore, arms control coordinator at the National Security Council, told South Korea’s Yonhap news agency in an interview.

In Singapore, visiting United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned Pyongyang’s launch of the rocket could jeopardize food aid to that impoverished country.

Help from US

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) gave no word on preparations it was taking in the event debris from the new North Korean rocket lands on Philippine territory.

“We have intensified our monitoring efforts of any significant developments. We will coordinate with our US counterparts and if necessary seek their assistance to enhance our surveillance and monitoring efforts,” AFP spokesperson Col. Arnulfo Burgos Jr. said.

“We are still hoping that the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) will heed the warnings and appeals to stop their planned rocket launch which several nations have already voiced,” Burgos added.

The North’s planned launch sometime between April 12 and 16 will be a key topic on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in Seoul starting on Monday to be attended by Obama and other world leaders, including the presidents of China and Russia. The summit will focus on nuclear terrorism.

Japan preparations

Obama has scheduled talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and other leaders at the summit.

The nuclear-armed North has announced it will launch the rocket to put a satellite into orbit, a move that the United States and other nations see as a pretext for a long-range missile test banned by the UN.

The North’s atomic program is expected to be the subject of intense discussion at the summit.

“I have ordered officials to prepare to deploy the PAC-3 and Aegis warships,” Japan’s Defense Minister Naoki Tanaka told reporters, referring to surface-to-air missiles and destroyers carrying missiles.

“We are talking to relevant local governments about the deployment,” he said.

Second stage

The surface-to-air interceptors would reportedly be deployed on Japan’s southern Okinawa island chain, but any order to shoot down the North Korean rocket would first need the approval of Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda.

Japanese officials have said the projectile may pass over Okinawa.

In a notice to the UN’s International Maritime Organization, North Korea has said the first stage of the rocket will fall in international waters between China and South Korea.  The second stage is expected to splash down east of northern Philippines.

Ban, who plans to raise the rocket launch at the Seoul summit, said any launch could discourage international aid donors and worsen North Korea’s already dire humanitarian situation.

“Such an act would undermine recent positive diplomatic progress and, in its effect on international donors, would likely worsen the humanitarian situation inside the country,” he said in a speech in Singapore.

‘Clear violation’

North Korea has warned that any attempts to raise the rocket launch at the nuclear summit in Seoul would be taken as “a declaration of war” and rejected South Korean demands to call off the launch.

But Ban, a South Korean, said the launch would be a “clear violation” of UN Security Council resolutions and warned that the North already has a “serious humanitarian crisis” on its hands.

The United States voiced doubt last week over whether it could provide food aid to Pyongyang if it followed through on the launch, after an apparent breakthrough deal with North Korea last month.

Washington had said it would deliver 240,000 metric tons of food aid to North Korea, which remains hampered by food shortages after a devastating famine in the 1990s.

In return, Pyongyang agreed to a partial freeze on its nuclear program, to suspend missile tests and to allow the return of UN atomic inspectors.

UN resolution

The Japanese defense minister, who met with US Ambassador John Roos late Thursday, said the two sides “reconfirmed to further strengthen Japan-US cooperation, especially on the North Korean issue.”

In 2009, Japan ordered similar missile-defense preparations before Pyongyang’s last long-range rocket launch, which brought UN Security Council condemnation and tightened sanctions against the isolated communist state.

The rocket, which North Korea said was also aimed at putting a satellite into orbit, passed over Japanese territory without incident or any attempt to shoot it down.

A UN Security Council resolution passed after the North staged missile and nuclear tests in 2009 bans a ballistic missile launch for any purpose.

“As secretary general of the United Nations, I express my deep concern by the announcement of the (North Korean) government (on) their intention to launch a satellite,” Ban said in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

‘Declaration of war’

In Seoul, South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan again appealed to the North to scrap its rocket launch, calling it “a grave provocation.”

South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak said on Wednesday that despite Pyongyang’s threats, leaders of five nations will discuss ways to press North Korea to abandon its plans to launch the rocket.

The United States, China, South Korea, Japan and Russia have been involved since 2003 in the talks, which have been broken off repeatedly over various instances of North Korean brinksmanship.

North Korea’s state news agency said on Wednesday any attempt by Lee to raise the issue would be “a ridiculous attempt and an absolutely unpardonable criminal act.”

“Any provocative act would be considered a declaration of war against us and its consequences would serve as great obstacles to talks on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” it said. With reports from AFP and AP

      for one thing, NK is richer than SK in natural resources.  The mountains of the north are rich in uranium, ore and other mineral deposits while the south is mainly plains and agricultural lands.  Thats why the north lacks food. 
      secondly, US sanctions are the ones that are starving NK, not the NK economy.
      thirdly, PRC and the former USSR aids NK both in military and civilian technology
      lastly, being a military dictatorship the whole country is mobilized in defending its territory.

      Look at Israel, she has nowhere near the size or resources of NK but she is also a nuclear power because of military aid coming from US, UK, France and Germany.

      Pride and nationalism is one thing but you seem to forget that the past and present problems of the Philippines are caused by Filipinos not by outsiders. After WW 2, the Philippines was a power broker, we had wealth and influence surpassing other Southeast Asian countries. So what happened? Greed and  corruption from government oligarchy have made the Philippines what it is today. The Philippines have become the supplier of the worlds maid, laborers, doctors, engineers, and computer specialist.  We should export products not people!

    One way or another, NoKor may have been using this strategy to bring attention to the world that they are a strong military country to contend with and wants to maintain it that way.  They are a grave threat to SoKor.  No wonder there are a lot of South Koreans in the Philippines right now because maybe they don’t want to be trapped when the North Koreans invade the South.

    Remember what happened to USSR in the early 90’s?  The country collapsed primarily because it can no longer sustain its military, and practically all the people have become impoverished. 

    How long can this crazy NoKor military government sustain their nuclear weapons program but  let its citizen go hungry?  It will not be long. 

    NoKor may not have realized it (or they know perfectly well), but they are the last vestige of Communism.  Even Communist China has embraced a hy-brid form of government, i.e., a blend of capitalism and communism, that is why they have become very progressive.  Communism is a gone ideology.  It is a dead cause.

    Given the parlous state of our military forces, I would suggest the cheapest way to intensify their monitoring of the situation is to get hold of a television set and watch Al Jazeera, the BBC or CNN news. 

    And if, by any chance and with only the briefest of warning, the rocket goes off course and begins to head towards northern Luzon, our military can take heart – there’s many fine young men and women in Ilocos Norte who can run a mile in 4 minutes!!

    The most sensible analysis I have heard comes from retired Commodore Rex Robles who said on TV that North Korea plans to launch its missile rocket (to install a satellite in space) because it is left without choice. North Korea needs access to food and is starving. It is doing the launch to get noticed and to “show the world that it has nuclear capability and that any aggressor coming towards them is being forewarned.”

    All the paranoia that Voltaire Gazmin exhibited yesterday to call for help from the United States is baseless as Rex Robles calculated that any margin of error from the missile launch of about 10 miles is too remote for the Philippines to get worried of any rocket debris falling into the Pacific Ocean. It has been estimated to send debris of about “190 kilometers east of northern Philippines” or 118 miles. So, the closest it will fall within Philippine territorial waters is 108 miles or 174 kilometers..ang layo naman po! I hope Voltaire Gazmin is not trying to justify more military presence of American troops, is he? A second opinion surely helps…not everything coming from “official sources” is accurate.

Palparan… he didnt stole anything from the govt… he loved the country  and did his job very well… he is not a PMA graduate but his performance exceeded that of the so called AFPs cream of the crop… What he did was kill lots of NPAs and here comes Abnoy ordering for his arrest in suspicion that he killed innocent activist…WTF!  Abnoy doesnt even have a strong evidence  against the General, only hearsay from  the communist de Lima… and this is the reason why I despise this present administration… and by the way, di ba bomoto ka rin kay Gloria last 2004?

      You better ask your sponsors what happened to the Armed Forces Funds during the last 9 years instead of attacking the newly formed government. Modernization of the Armed forces does not take overnight to achieve.
         Sorry but you are barking at the wrong tree my friend. Better check your history on all scandals that happened to our Armed Forces during the last 9 years. These scandals were their generals’ reward in their participation in cheating the 2004 Presidential as you will know.

     There is really nothing the Philippines can do about this. Just hope for the best. The thing that the military could do is to retrain its soldiers and officers in the art of fighting considering the losses they suffer in Al Barka, Basilan for nothing where 19 soldiers (including young PMA officers) were killed.

    Civil unrest is coming to North Korea.

    After this Missile launching activity, what’s next, eat the fuselage?


    Hint of color leaks into North Korea, civil unrest ensues

    In the
    wake of the death of Kim Jong Il, a tiny sliver of colored light seeped
    into North Korea yesterday afternoon, according to South Korean
    operatives who witnessed the event transpire. At this hour, the North
    Korean people are rioting in the streets and attempting to violently
    overthrow the government, Reportedly chanting and yelling that they’ve
    been denied color for countless years.

    “You have to understand
    that North Korea has been in black and white for many generations now,”
    explained North Korean Ambassador to the United Nations So Se Pyong.
    “To see everything in black and white your whole life, and to only hear
    things through a crackling static noise, and then to suddenly see actual
    color and hear clear sounds, it is very overwhelming. I had to undergo
    very special sensory training to be able to accept this duty in the
    United Nations.”

    Color, which was outlawed by the North Korean
    government along with everything else when they became a communist
    nation, was last seen in North Korea in 1999, when Kim Jong Il
    accidentally left a palace door open. The government narrowly contained
    the spread of color, barely avoiding then the major civil unrest
    they’re experiencing now.

    “Once you get a little color across
    your border, it’s nearly impossible to contain,” said So Se Pyong. “It
    spreads like wildfire, or an oil spill, or herpes. You see everything
    in technicolor at first, and then when your eyes adjust, everything is
    1080p and scary as h3ll.”

    North Korea is expected to respond to
    the rioting by mass-murdering a third of their population, blaming the
    killings on the United States, and then feeding everyone in their
    country double their rations for a special dinner, where they’ll get
    1/8th of a hotdog rather than 1/16th. It still remains unclear whether
    heir-apparent Kim Jong Un will become the country’s next supreme leader,
    or if the job will fall to Canadian pop star Justin Bieber. All that
    is known at this hour is that whoever the next “Glorious Leader” is,
    they’ll probably wear sunglasses that are way too big for them.

    We are too dependent on the US but we throw them out of the country. That is what corrupt officials of the Philippines wants and that is what China wants.  China is feeding our officials so they can sent off the US. If during Marcos time where he is still able then we can be independent because we are developing our own missile defense capable and other nuclear facilities but sad to say he is being used by his cronies for their on personal agenda when he is not well anymore.

      Most Filipinos would rather believe what Uncle Sam and western mass media has to say rather than look for facts or think for themselves. 

      I seriously doubt if anyone here has ever been to North Korea, know anyone there or even read the history of both Korea’s. Yet, most of them mouth off what western mass media has to say.

      After the event, and even if nothing untoward happens, they will still continue believing good old Uncle Sam.

    I believe a multilateral action is best. Assuming that one nation (US) will protect us, will have uncertain results, and might even cause more problems than solutions in the future. Based on the win-lose record of US after WW II, for example, we’re not even sure if they can will against North Korea. Also, assuming we win, what concession will US demand from us makes the situation very risky.

  • neverwint3r

    e sino bang mga genius ang nagpaalis sa mga kano ? tapos ngayun tuwing me conflict, with china, malaysia o north korea, sa US din ang takbo natin??

    o nasan na yung mga senador nuon at mga militante ? hala, sila ang iharang ninyo sa north korean missiles. sila rin ang ipalusob ninyo pag me giyera with china .

    puro salita lang at pampapogi, nationalism kuno, masarap pakinggan pero it’s direct opposite of our national interests.and the national interest obviously dictates that we need the US for protection, defense and for our security needs.

    until such time we have an army, navy and air force at par with the region’s best, we have no other choice. it’s sad, but true, let’s face it, a tiny  country like singapore the size of manila can obliterate our navy and air force in minutes.

    we have to modernize but unfortunately, we never learn.

      Yung 2nd debris lang po ng rocket na magdadala ng satellite nila sa orbit ung babagsak sa territorial waters naten. Yung first babagsak malapit sa China and South Korea.
