9th of April – Match

Aggressive rhetoric from North Korea has motivated neighboring Japan to deploy Patriot missiles to protect the 36 million people who live in the metropolitan Tokyo area. Two Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) surface-to-air missile launchers have been stationed in the Japanese capital, with battery units throughout Okinawa and other Pacific islands. Defense Minister Onodera Itsunori said on national television that the weapons were authorized to shoot down any North Korean missile headed towards its territory. Onodera’s remarks come after North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un declared a “state of war” with South Korea and pledged to rid the region of “US imperialists.”
