Happy July 4th Hawaii, Love Kim Jong Il

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.

Wow, Little Kim is cutting up something fierce! Perhaps he is just ticked off that Obama did not invite him to the Fourth of July celebrations being rolled out for Iran. It is said that Robert Gates has ordered missile interceptors to the region. I wonder if anyone at the White House is second-guessing the decision to nickel and dime on missile defense.

Maybe it is time for Obama to show North Korea his fly killing skills, that ought to get them to chill out.

You know what part of this I find strange. That Obama is willing to use the same missile defense program that he wants to cancel.

Should be interesting to see how this plays out. I've always speculated that North Korea will rely on chemical weapons to level the playing field, not nukes.

It seems senseless for North Korea to continue provoking the United States, with larger and larger provocations. If he's trying maintain his silly image and nonsensical commie propaganda at home, small provocations that have no chance at drawing retaliation would suffice.

I cannot believe that even the Obama administration would look past a missile aimed at Hawaii.

Word up! Talk about proving yourself wrong, how much you want to be he doesn't get it?

I too don't think they are ready to go nuclear on anyone, but what they will do is use it to threaten. When it comes to nukes, you really cannot afford not to take them seriously.

When it comes to foreign affairs, it seems like Obama just wants to put his head in the sand and hope it all goes away. The man is all about domestic spending and nothing else.

Welcome to ABC, enjoy your trip to Hawaii (lucky dog), NK missile is only good for 4500 miles and Hawaii is 6500 away. They also have crappy aim, so hopefully nothing will happen.

By the way, could you come back after your trip and let us know what everyone over there thought of the whole missle thing.
