IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE LESS ALONE...:

N Korea's missiles met by Tokyo sanctions (Hisane Masaki, 7/06/06, Asia Times)

Within hours of a series of provocative North Korean missile launches, Japan has responded by cutting the two countries' main direct transport link. The United States and Japan are leading a drive for punitive sanctions, but despite international fury at Pyongyang for thumbing its nose at the world, a United Nations resolution is unlikely, given Chinese and Russian reluctance. Still, a newly assertive Tokyo has shown its resolve to go it alone if necessary (with Washington by its side).

...than with Uncle Sam by your side?

Looking ahead a step or two, remember that nothing unifies Koreans like their hatred of the Japanese.
