That’s Diamondhead on Oahu in the background. Lil Kim’s big missile was apparently headed for Hawaii.
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.
The liberals want us to sit down and have a one-on-one dialogue with that nut.
Update (Allahpundit): Dan Riehl relays an intriguing theory from last night’s John Batchelor show. Could China have ordered the launches?
