The strategic cost of South Korea’s Japan bashing

South Korea's open hatred of Japan could come back to bite as the threat of a nuclear-armed North Korea grows.

Over the weekend, North Korea launched a new submarine capable of firing ballistic missiles. Even though the North Koreans have yet to actually mount missiles onto the refurbished Soviet era vessel, the Korean People’s Army has carried out dozens of missile tube tests both on land and sea. This is in addition to a number of nuclear tests by Pyongyang over the past few years, and research and development conducted to developing nuclear warheads small enough to fit into submarine-fired ballistic missiles. If North Korea actually develops submarines capable of firing nuclear armed missiles, then this will significantly worsen the already worrying threat to South Korea and Japan, in addition to American military forces in the region.
