Sooo, are they now going to start upping the numbers for new recruits in the military, "just in case"?
North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday, but the missile "broke up in flight" and has been deemed a failure, two U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News.
The missile has been assessed to be a KN-17, a former Scud missile that officials believe is being tested to one day target ships. It flew roughly 25 miles and was in the air for about 15 minutes, officials tell Fox News. The KN-17 was launched from Pukchang.

You're kidding right? We were doing paper war games with the State and City of Honolulu in the late 90s, planning what taxiways and runways we'd close down in case we had to send a response to Korea.
North Korea has been on the radar for as long as I can remember.
