    Re: North Korea may fire missile toward Hawaii in early July

    I think I heard the other day that the odds of us intercepting a missle coming toward our shores is 90%. In the words of Bart Simpson, "that ain't not bad."

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    U.S. Military Tracking North Korean Ship


    The U.S. military is tracking a flagged North Korean ship suspected of proliferating weapons material in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last Friday, FOX News has learned.

    The ship, Kang Nam, left a port in North Korea Wednesday and appears to be heading toward Singapore, according to a senior U.S. military source. The vessel, which the military has been tracking since its departure, could be carrying weaponry, missile parts or nuclear materials.

    "It is believed to be 'of interest,'" a senior U.S. official told FOX News.

    This is the first suspected "proliferator" that the U.S. and its allies have tracked from North Korea since the United Nations authorized the world's navies to enforce compliance with a variety of U.N. sanctions aimed at punishing North Korea for its recent nuclear test.

    The ship is currently along the coast of China and being monitored around-the-clock by air.

    The apparent violation raises the question of how the United States and its allies will respond, particularly since the U.N. resolution does not have a lot of teeth to it.

    The resolution would not allow the United States to board the ship forcibly. Rather, U.S. military would have to request permission to board -- a request North Korea is unlikely to grant.

    North Korea has said that any attempt to board its ships would be viewed as an act of war and promised "100- or 1,000-fold" retaliation if provoked.

    Gates Orders Measures to Protect Hawaii From North Korea Missile

    June 18 (Bloomberg) -- Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he has ordered the U.S. military to take defensive measures should North Korea attempt to fire a ballistic missile toward Hawaii.

    I think we are in a good position, should it become necessary, to protect American territory, Gates told reporters at the Pentagon today.
    Democrats lost the ABM argument.
    Thanks Kim.

    Re: Report: N. Korea May Fire ICBM Toward Hawaii

    In reguard to the Kang Kam (NK Weapons Ship) this ship has been on our watch list for many years why for the life of me we haven't boarded yet I don't understand.

    We know were it's been and what it has transported in the past. If the UN really is going to use it's resolution correctly it's time for the China to stop this ship. But here lys the problem if they stop the ship and find that their is stuff that they help them(NK) build on this ship then what shall the rest of the World say and do.

    I say if we know that it's heading to Singapore the monument it makes the corse change to leave Chinese Water and hit the 12 mile mark we stop the ship and check the cargo, and if little KIm Ill wants to bitch then fine.

    If China starts crying then I would tell them in private look here china we have photo and video showing that some of the stuff on this said vessel came from China so either shut up or we go to the International Press.

    Or we can just send the ship to Davy Jone's Locker which would be just as good.

    Re: North Korea may fire missile toward Hawaii in early July

    Since back when the false reports of how effective the Patriot missiles were in the first Gulf War they have been upgraded and now actually work. The THAAD Theatre High-Altitude Area Defence Missile System of the ARMY has come on line and the NAVY has Aegis Destroyers, and Cruisers that have anti Missile Systems that can take out incoming missiles and there are others as well as the laser device that was just tested and works with a beam many times hotter than the Sun.
    The message shooting one down would let the rest of the world know not to mess with the U.S.
    An All out war with N. Korea if they used nukes first would last almost 15 minutes.
    Sadly the fall out would last years environmentally and politically.

    North Korea is just showing the world that the United States has a leader with no fortitude whatsoever.

    In other words, Obama's ain't dropped yet.

    All the system you mention have at best a 50% effectiveness. The THAAD is only for short range Cruise and Skud type missile and the last actual live fire test they only brought down 6 or the 16 fired at them.

    The Aegis is great for if you have fired say a Exocet/Harpoon/KH-15 but when it come's to shooting down a Land Fired ICBM/MCBM forget it they move to fast for the Aegis Fire Control to get a hot lead and launch.

    Love how they're doing this on July 4th.

    I also love that they're doing this now, and not when Bush was in office.
