Japan Considering Strike on N. Korea

China's worst nightmare looks like it may be coming true:

TOKYO (AP) - Japan said Monday it was considering whether a pre-emptive
strike on the North's missile bases would violate its constitution, signaling a
hardening stance ahead of a possible U.N. Security Council vote on Tokyo's
proposal for sanctions against the regime.

This is good news for the U.S. and Japan and bad news for North Korea and China. China has been trying to play both ends of this diplomatic game in these multilateral "talks" with Kim Jong (mentally) Il and North Korea. Having Japan get serious about flexing it's power in the region does not bode well for our Chinese "friends".
