The new missile has a range of more than 3,000 miles.
If incendiary bluster slides into military conflict, the populations of South Korea and Japan are in harm’s way.
Japan must be ready to defend itself when America’s nuclear deterrence fails.
President Donald Trump has escalated his war of words with North Korea following its successful completion of an intercontinental ballistic missile test.
"North Korea can build missiles faster than we can build defenses," one analyst warns.
