TOKYO (Reuters) - The United States and Japan warned North Korea against a missile launch as officials said the secretive communist state appeared to have finished fueling for a test flight that could possibly reach as far as Alaska.

South Korean broadcaster YTN cited officials in Seoul as saying a launch of Pyongyang's Taepodong-2 missile was imminent.

Good thing Bush knocked off Saddam. That showed those "Axis of Evil" dictators that they cannot have nukes and missiles...

I'd be more worried about the administration shooting off their ABM - Hawaii is downrange! :eek: :D

Hawaii is an easy target....and cheap......in the late 70's we outfitted a Piper Comanche with a new Brittain autopilot, HF radios etc for a ferry flight to Hunny looloo....the pilot said after takeoff he literally never touched the controls 'till he wuz there....

They've been talking about it for 20 years that I know of (beyond the fringes that have been talking about it since the Japanese constitution was imposed back in ?47?). It would require a change to their constitution.

Is it possible that Japan will be the 21st century's "Sleeping Gaint"?

ABC News: the administration does not rule out attempting to shoot down the NK missle.

Between the reported unreliability of the NK missles and the zero success rate of the ABM, I'd be more worried if I lived in Hawaii! :eek:

Generally speaking, major hypage around the reports on this. :rolleyes:

Do you think its interesting that Japan and Germany have prospered so well during a period in which they did not spend 1/2 their GDP on an arms race. You can betcha boots that there are plenty in Washington who love would Japan to re-militarise.

It's good that NK is developing long range ICBMS,,otherwise there would be nothing to justify the unrealistic $9Billion/yr ABM system,,in the mean time proliferation of low altitude cruise missles are the real threat.
AHHHHHHH!! North Korea!! AHHHHHHHHH!! Vote Republican because they are strong on defense ! AAHHHHHHH
