Japan to install land-based missile defense Aegis Ashore

U.S. President Donald Trump reacts as he boards Marine One helicopter while departing for vacation in Bedminster New Jersey from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington U.S

"Obviously, any diplomatic effort in any situation where you have this level of threat that we're confronted with - a threat of proportions that none of us like to contemplate - has to be backed by a strong military effect if North Korea chooses wrongly", Tillerson said.

CHOI DONG-SAM, from Busan at the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula, said North Korea would bear ultimate responsibility for any conflict that breaks out, regardless of the circumstances.

WASHINGTON - South Korean President Moon Jae-in's declaration that North Korea will be crossing a "red line" if it fields a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile has baffled some US experts who argue the liberal leader may be boxing himself into a corner.

On Thursday, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and their Japanese counterparts agreed at their two-plus-two meeting in Washington to work more closely on the issue.

Japan's foreign minister, Taro Kono, said at the news conference that the officials agreed to call on China to take "specific measures to make North Korea change its behavior", leading to a denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Abe also signaled that Japan is eager to strengthen its alliance with the United States amid growing threats from North Korea.

"Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us", Bannon was quoted as saying.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, made the case as tensions with North Korea have spiked over its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

Japan's Defense Ministry says it will seek funding in the next fiscal year to cover system-design costs, after expediting the decision to deploy the Aegis Ashore amid the latest series of ballistic missile launches by Pyongyang.

The Navy said the $164.9 million Japanese-funded contract was awarded in support of an worldwide agreement between the USA and Japan.

He further offered the following quotes from coach Ron Rivera about Newton's practice performance. They will wrap up their trip to Nashville at 3 p.m. on Saturday against the Tennessee Titans .

Japan, which hosts about 50,000 US forces members, has sought support for worldwide efforts to pressure North Korea.

The chairman came out to the region with the objective of articulating USA policy to make sure there is no ambiguity for any of the players in the region.

"Our alliance is rock solid, in fact in my personal view this is the greatest alliance on earth", he said as he met Abe.

Just last week, Trump pledged to answer North Korean aggression with "fire and fury".

Beijing has banned most imports from North Korea to comply with United Nations sanctions.

Japan's current ballistic missile defense system uses Aegis warships equipped with Standard Missile-3 interceptors that are used to stop missiles in the outer atmosphere.

Following North Korea's well-publicized plans to shoot four rockets over Japanese areas to eventually hit the waters near the USA territory of Guam, Japan tested its J-Alert system, which would transmit information to towns and cities along the projected path of a missile.

Tokyo also wants to increase the number of Aegis destroyers to five, according to the report.

Defense officials have said such a rise is desirable, but Finance Ministry officials are cautious because of Tokyo's mammoth public debt.
