Will North Korea Fire Missiles At America?

Japan's best-selling newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, is reporting that Japanese Intelligence believes North Korea may launch a missile toward Hawaii on or around the 4th of July. And this on the heels of their underground nuclear weapons test on Memorial Day.

Granted, the suspected missile (a Taepodong-2) has a maximum range about 500 miles short of Hawaii, but it's the thought that counts.

According to the report in Yomiuri Shimbun,

Both Japanese intelligence and U.S. reconnaissance satellites have collated information pointing to the launch . . . U.S. satellite intelligence has shown that a missile launch pad had been erected at Dongchang-ri on North Korea's north-west coast.

So, Obama believes a soft-handed, apologetic approach to handling dictators and terrorists will persuade them put down their weapons and love us. As Dr. Phil would say, "how's that working out for us*."
