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?
