    Report: N. Korea May Fire ICBM Toward Hawaii

    TOKYO North Korea may fire a long-range ballistic missile toward Hawaii in early July, a Japanese newspaper said Thursday, amid escalating tensions between the communist country and the United States over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

    The missile, believed to be a long-range Taepodong-2 with a range of up to 4,000 miles, would be launched from North Korea's Dongchang-ni site on the northwestern coast, said the Yomiuri daily, Japan's top-selling newspaper.


    The report cited an analysis by the Japanese Defense Ministry and intelligence gathered by U.S. reconnaissance satellites.


    The Yomiuri said the Taepodong-2 could fly over Japan and toward Hawaii, but that it would not be able to hit the main islands of Hawaii, which lie about 4,500 miles from the Korean peninsula.

    The missile launch could come between July 4 and 8, the paper said. It noted that North Korea had fired its first Taepodong-2 missile on July 4, 2006. Also, July 8 is the anniversary of the 1994 death of North Korea founder Kim Il Sung.

    I don't think cutting ABM capabilities will be a winner anymore.
    Dunno how the japanese would know its trajectory... but you never know.

    TOKYO North Korea warned Wednesday of a "thousand-fold" military retaliation against the U.S. and its allies if provoked, the latest threat in a drumbeat of rhetoric in defense of its rogue nuclear program.

    I for one don't see it happening. But being in Hawaii maybe I should start making "I survived the bomb 09'" T-shirts.

    The age of bomb shelters may be coming again.

    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

    Although North Korea is an serious problem, I suspect that firing a rocket "towards Hawaii" really means "somewhere in the pacific ocean".

    5 years from now.

    "Yesterday, North Korea fired a rocket towards Hawaii. It landed 100 feet off its shore.

    In other news, North Korea no longer exists, but is a smoldering crater in the ground. Not surprisingly, no one kills, save for the little asian kid from MadTV whose only funny bit was dressing up as Kim Jong Ill."

    What I find really unsettling is that Jung seems to be going out of his way to demonstrate that he doesn't know how this whole MAD thing works.

    Kim Jong Ill is testing the waters to see how far he can go and what he can get away with.

    I realize that Kim is ill but you have to sak why someone close to this nut does not shoot him in the head, and in doing so save the lives of millions from the retaliation strike that would come from any nuclear attack. How ever they may be relying on Obama's unwillingness to defend our allies or possibly even the U.S.
    I personally would put the laser equipped 747 anti missile system along with the Navy's anti missile systems on alert and in the area and shoot down all future tests that leave N. Korean air space. It would send a message to everyone that provocative acts will not be tolerated. The problem is Obama is going to do the usual and gut the military again as has been the liberal way for too long.

    The Obama mantra so far has been there is strength in weakness, which invites problems that see us as weak members of the Neville Chamberlain school politics.
    Ronald Reagan would stand up to dictators like Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and not put up with any nonsense and everyone knew he meant what he said with no wishie washy, marshmallow milk toast BS
