The Taep’o-dong 2 is an intercontinental-range, road mobile, liquid propellant ballistic missile. It is currently North Korea’s only true ICBM. Today, this missile represents the single greatest nuclear threat to the United States. While the missile has very limited accuracy, it is thought to be target at major US population centers in both Alaska and Hawaii, and perhaps even as far as California.

...What would the North Koreans achieve by launching them apart from becoming the worlds largest parking lot afterwards?
...Could it be that North Korea is using nuclear weapons...as a deterant and that they have no plans on using them at all?
...Funny how Iran is doing the exact same thing for the exact same reasons.
...If you take an objective look at the situation with North Korea and Iran in regards to nuclear weapons, they are purely a deterent.
...telling those Democrats that their lives are in danger from North Koreans would considerably strengthen Bush politically if he choses to invade.
...Iraq never really threatend the United States mainland but the populace was sold on the idea enough to authourise an invasion.
