They Were Aiming Directly At Us

The North Korean Taepodong-2 ballistic missile that was launched Tuesday was very likely aimed at Hawai'i.
TOKYO (Reuters) - A North Korean missile launched on Wednesday was aimed at an area of the ocean close to Hawaii, a Japanese newspaper reported on Friday.

Experts estimated the Taepodong-2 ballistic missile to have a range of up to 6,000 km, putting Alaska within its reach. Wednesday's launch apparently failed shortly after take-off and the missile landed in the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan, a few hundred kilometres from the launch pad.

But data from U.S. and Japanese Aegis radar-equipped destroyers and surveillance aircraft on the missile's angle of take-off and altitude indicated that it was heading for waters near Hawaii, the Sankei Shimbun reported, citing multiple sources in the United States and Japan.

North Korea may have targeted Hawaii to show the United States that it was capable of landing a missile there, or because it is home to the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific fleet, the paper said.
Maybe this story is true, maybe it isn't. Can we afford to take a chance? Why are we playing around with this asshole? Is Clinton still President? Is Madeline Albright still Secretary of Appeasement? Is Jimmy Carter still Ambassador at Large for Surrender? Why aren't we bombing the muthaf-cking daylights out of the Dear Demented Leader and his missile facilities? We must assume North Korea was targeting us.

We must assume it was an act of war. We must assume it was a deliberate attempt to directly attack United States territory. We have the right to defend ourselves, and we should be use every resource at our disposal to do so.
