Tokyo, Japan. With the USA trying to provoke a North Korean response, it continues its greatest gift to the world chaos, as it now brings feral panic to Japan’s citizens, telling them they only have minutes to live if a war breaks out in the region.
Japanese government authorities have admitted that citizens can expect a mere 10 minute warning of a massive North Korean nuclear missile attack. The disclosure comes at the same time as a massive spike in interest in a civil defense website run by the country’s ministry, where views have surged almost sevenfold from March to reach 2.6 million this month.
Regional disaster management officials meeting in Tokyo last week called for the implementation of a national system of civil defense drills, and for changes in the law to make it easier for them to order mandatory evacuations in the event of a probable attack.
The mayor of Osaka, Japan Hirofumi Yoshimura, with a city of 8.8 million told reporters, “A missile may not be detected as soon as it leaves the launch pad … and that could take several minutes.” He added: “The warnings and alarms might only sound four or five minutes before a missile arrives.” Further elevating the panic level and feelings of resentment towards America, for bringing this confrontation into Japanese homes.
In the event of a North Korean nuclear first strike, Japanese are presently being advised to seek shelter underground or in strong concrete buildings. Those unable to do so are advised to get low on the floor or crouch under tables. School children in Osaka are being told to hide under desks. City officials say there is little else that can be done.
Tensions are extremely high following revelations that North Korea could be preparing for its next nuclear test in defiance of international warnings. Nikki Haley or Nimrat Randhawa, Washington’s U.N. ambassador, has said that the US will retaliate against North Korea if it tests an intercontinental ballistic missile or attacks a US base, drawing a red line easily broken and gambling with millions of Japanese lives.
