North Korea misidentifies Colorado Springs, Colo.
upi ^ | April 15, 2013

PYONGYANG, North Korea,- A North Korean propaganda video threatening a missile strike against Colorado Springs, Colo., misidentifies the city's location by about 1,000 miles.

The video, released by the state-run media organization Uriminzokkiri, threatens the country could launch its KN-08 missiles at Washington, Los Angeles, Honolulu and Colorado Springs, but the spot on the map where it places Colorado Springs is actually somewhere in the vicinity of Shreveport, La., approximately 900 miles south of the labeled location, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

The Post said the KN-08 missile is untested and North Korea has not demonstrated the ability to reach the U.S. mainland with the weapon.

Maybe they need to aim at Shreveport in order to hit Colorado Springs?

Actually, they are aiming at Bossier City...which is a den of subversive activities (horse racing, dancing women, hooters, etc).

If they aimed at the springs they’d be lucky to hit Colorado - anywhere in Colorado... But I seriously doubt it would make it, even if we didn’t shoot it down.

The CONSTANT and with every citizen’s relaxed face makes me sad. It’s a constant frown. And what’s worse, that’s even with the ELITE! Who HAVE ENOUGH FOOD and everything else. Kim Jung Il, his looney tunes sister Kim Kyong-hui (who most think are running the show for Un now). There is just nothing but complete permanent frowns.

How sad.

I’m betting that someone in Shreveport can be thanked for pointing out this error.

Great reporting.

900 miles south of Colorado Springs is Mexico.

So they got the locations correct for 3 out of 4 US cities.

I doubt ANYONE here thinks that today’s high school graduates can locate 3 of 4 American cities on a map, much less show up to work on time (hence the push for Illegals).

Fun to joke, but I heard Geraldo saying that he’s not worried about Lil’Kim, since he expects Lil’Kim to behave rationally, just as the Soviet leaders did in the past.

He is so convinced that we need some type of Pearl Harbor to wake up the people he represents, because ABSOLUTELY NOTHING else will. So, as unfortunate as it is, I prepare for that day and hope that my loved ones (and myself) survive it.

Also one of our last strategic nuclear airbases. Barksdale is home to the B-52’s and one of a few bases that still bunkers many nukes.

“The video, released by the state-run media”

Their state-run media, is no less accurate, then the US, state-run media.

That’s right. The North Koreans have now revealed their CEP (Circular Error Probability) is about 900 nautical miles.
