Can anyone confirm that it's actually Austin? It has no strategic value. Just down the road 60 miles(where I live) is San Antonio. US Air Force Training base (Lackland AFB), various commands (Randolph AFB), and Brooks Army Medical Center, as well as peripheral units.... just wondering..... i couldn't really tell by the map....
China doesn't want a strong North Korea on their border.
Those are the two big suppliers that could provide advanced weapons.

Hopefully this is just saber rattling on the part of North Korea.
But as the images show. They are seriously considering striking the US mainland.
As you can see in the picture they have plans to hit Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Hawaii and possibly Austin.
I didn't think they had missiles with that sort of range. However I wouldn't put it past them have smuggled in some missile that might be able to hit us. In any case it's a little scary to see that.
However that would be the last thing they would ever do.

1.you don't need to cut of the sea lanes to to disrupt our oil supply's.. you also don't need putin's navy either.
2 the strategic reserve will be rationed and the military will have priority over it.
3.We Important cause we have to, not because we can.. it would take a miracle for the USA to be oil independent,, 19 million barrels a day is hard to come by, Plus It takes 5 barrels of water for every barrel of oil so that's 19 million *5 its not happening, and you do know what the depletion rate is for wells in the Bakken.. 50 percent a year..
But I think your right the government knows how vulnerable we are. but so does Putin and China,,

If you were planning an attack on an enemy, would it be a very good idea to release a photograph to the media with a ruddy big map showing your plan hanging on the wall behind you?
You mean like a decoy?
You may have just opened a big can of worms.
There's no conflict on the NK/China border because there are no troops there on one side.
There is however a serious refugee problem that is starting to annoy China greatly.

This nutter for a leader is like a kid with a new toy to play with. Photo shopping his army is ridiculous to say the least.
If he attacks the UK I don't think for a second we wouldn't strike back with deadly force. As for USA, well, another war they can jump into again.

The regime deserves whatever they get but the people have suffered enough.
