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.

This is very scary stuff, if anyone is mad enough to do this then it is Kimmy. If this pans out then NK could become the worlds biggest ashtray come the 5th of July. Again I really hope this doesnt happen as have friends in Japan and think this crackpot could use this as a bluff and aim for Japan, I really think this could spark WW3 and would be just like the crazy North Koreans to do it on Independance day.

I agree. That would be the best way to ensure that most if not all Americans were gung-ho for another war, even the ones who want us out of the wars we are already in.
My only concern is that he might actually be stupid enough to start WWIII... That is one thing I hope I never live to see.
