Japan to deploy missile interceptors nationwide on North Korea threat

The Japanese government plans to boost its deployment of Patriot Advanced Capability-3 interceptor missiles at air bases across Japan to counter the threat of North Korea's ballistic missiles under new defense policy guidelines to be approved later this month, officials said Friday.

A draft appendix to the guidelines to be updated as early as next week covering the five years from April 2011 also stipulates equipping all six Aegis destroyers with Standard Missile-3 interceptors while cutting tanks and artillery by about 200 each to 400, the government and Self-Defense Forces officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this process will take time, it appears that Japan believes that there will be some kind of military conflict in the Korean Peninsula in the not too distant future.
