Tonight there's urgent new evidence that north korea is ready to launch a missile at any hour, any moment, a show of force, a defiant test of world reaction. ABC news has been told that the fuel has been loaded. The missile is on the pad.
And our bob woodruff is in south korea to bring us more details right now. Reporter: The top u. S.
Defense official responded to kim jong-un'sising rhetoric today. North korea's actions have been skating very close to a dangerous line. Reporter: There is some anxiety growing on the streets and in the subways of seoul amid south korean news reports than emergency threat levels jumped to watchcon-2, which is one step away from war.
Even as koreans went about their daily routines, young koreans have lived through endless propaganda and missile tests for decades. Now even they are starting to wonder about kim jong-un. He is very crazy.
Reporter: He's crazy? Parents are getting nervous. Sae jung kim told me for the first time in this conflict tomorrow, she will not take her son to kindergarten.
Any strike, anywhere else, i want my kids to be with me. Reporter: Even if that happens, that missile would be mid range called muse dan. Never before tested.
Powerful enough to travel 2,000 miles putting us bases in okinawa or guam within its reach. Moving patriots missiles into position around tokyo.
The danger here is kim jong-un has ramped up the tension to such a point that even the smallest action could provoke a larger fight, a war or significant military clash. Reporter: As for timing, most believe this launch will happen sometime this week because next monday is kim jong-un's grandfather's birthday.

This coming from ABC News bothers me. I’m not sure how or why, but it does.
ABC is one of the media outlets which speaks on behalf of the Democrat National Committee.
At least Obozo has Tokoyo protected by patriots. How about Guam or n Hawaii?
Question, how many of you have confidence in the Obama administration handling whatever might happen with North Korea???
It is the North Koreans that should be nervous.
They are going to get a terrible reaction if an attack comes.
But I doubt they even know what is going on.
Who the heck knows...it’s a wild card with that SOB.
Picture not exactly right. It needs to show the Chosen One with some choom.
If it did not put this country in danger from within and without, this occupant of the White House would be a bad Cheech and Chong joke.
No, it comes down to whatever benefits him, even in times like this.
Obama probably soiled his pants upon hearing the news, so ABC got worried too.
Hey Kim, bet you can’t hit DC with one of your rockets. Go ahead, I triple dog dare ya.
I think the plan is for Japan to pretend to shoot it down after we did and we give Japan credit.
"Hey, it was just a test launch. We knew it wasn't a real threat."
Yeah. Sure. I'm pretty sure such a display of weakness would be devastating to our global prestige. I think there is a good chance of this happening.
we must have tomahawk or two lying around with nothing to do tonight....
to quote elmer fudd, “siwwy wabbit, fuewing opewations are vewy vewy twicky with wockets and pwocedures can go vewy vewy badwy.”
I have confidence that 0bama will never consciously do anything good or decent for this country.
yeah, the tone is kind of weird.. "he is very crazy.."?
