North Korea may launch a long-range ballistic missile towards Hawaii on American Independence Day, according to Japanese intelligence officials.
The missile, believed to be a Taepodong-2 with a range of up to 4,000 miles, would be launched in early July from the Dongchang-ni site on the north-western coast of the secretive country.
Intelligence analysts do not believe the device would be capable of hitting Hawaii's main islands, which are 4,500 miles from North Korea.
Details of the launch came from the Japan's best-selling newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun.
Both Japanese intelligence and U.S. reconnaissance satellites have collated information pointing to the launch, according to the report.

Yes, it’s “unproven.”
Notice how Kim Jong Il got all brave once “0” got in office....
I’m deeply concerned.
Which 0ne of our enemies would not be brave facing the 0ne?
Yeah cutting that missile defense sure makes 0 look “pretty impressive, don’t you think”.
He’s gonna get us killed what a freakin’ idiot. 2010/2012 can NOT come soon enough.
Is there a law that circumvents the use of the “launch codes” in the event of a CIC (coward in chief)?
Some of the most liberal liberals I am forced to know are “concerned”
In honor of glorious event for choosing of new Dearest Leader for the great Peoples Communist Hermit Hovel, and for celebration of independence, three Small Wang III missiles will be launched into the sea, with a great celebration to commemorate this glorious defeat of the surface tensions in the general directions of America. /ror
Is there a law that circumvents the use of the launch codes in the event of a CIC (coward in chief)?
I have heard liberals say that it is a waste of money as it is only 50% effective. Well if you have two warheads, one headed for New York, one for Philadelphia, saving one city is better than losing two.
They should be . . . I give it 6-12 months!
It’s nice to know we’re getting our intelligence from Japan. I wonder if the CIA was keeping quiet, hoping for San Francisco?
go for it!
Maybe BO will have Hillary write a stern letter.
Like this? Thanks!
Earlier on Fox they described the projected flight of the missile would be over S. Korea and Japan. If this were so and the US is signed to protect those two States then would we have rights to intercept and destroy said missile?
Too bad he doesn’t deal with America’s enemies the way he deals with insects.
We will inercept and destroy 0, unless Muslims are involved.
(AF was Midway under the Japanese naval code.
After and attack by North Korea their dear leader will get a sever finger wagging from our dear leader.
Any attack may get all CAPS!
Gates Orders Interceptors to Island...
Ok, we also have interceptors here...just in case?
I feel bad reading about this development.
“Plan R is an emergency war plan in which a lower echelon commander may order nuclear retaliation after a sneak attack if the normal chain of command is disrupted ... The idea was for Plan R to be a sort of retaliatory safeguard.”

Our enemies rejoiced the day the idiots elected him...
Insects can’t fight back and 0 is a wuss with thugs to do his bidding.
SERIES THAT FINGERS! It’s only hugh when the leftards are in danger of loooosing their pet projects. LOL
He can take on a fly without a telepromter.
How quick would the United States respond if North Korea attacked the United States?
If the Navy or the Air Force stop the attack in air, what would happen next, would the US retaliate?
Well, Obumber said he wanted to level the playing field. Wonder how he likes it?
We are taking this seriously and are concerned, we are giving it our utmost attention.
“General James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it would take at least three to five years for North Korea to pose a real threat to the U.S. west coast.”
So we should just sit on our arses and wait til then. /S
Obama, our fearless leader, will surely issue a STRONG letter of condemnation if Kim nuke Colorado...
You could expect a measured response. Nice knowing you.
Zeely Amerikans vote for even bigger Communist than me!
An old German V-2 rocket was more accurate than these pieces of crap.Hopefully it will misfire an land somewhere in China or Russia.
That’s ok, they’ve added four more episodes of the real housewives
of new jersey to get us through this.
For how long?
Well thats one way to settle the Birth Certificate problem.
Hopefully it will hit a mosque...will O be visiting?
Think about it, every shot so far has failed, short. What if they kind of get it right, and they are bound to sooner or later. What if they set it for 4000 miles and it ends up at 4500, close to Honolulu? What would Obama do then?
