Protective measures

Dropping off the new big kids in the neighborhood. PAC-3 Patriot Missile battery in Saitama prefecture, Japan. Of course, unlike high profile U.S. military hardware, this delivery and installation was absent of any protest, any cry of "America out!". Why the change of heart? Well, perhaps North Korea's recent positive tests of nuclear capability combined with its successful test firing of ICBMs, one of which sailed clear over the island chain last year had something to do with it. ;)
