Hawaii Hunkers Down in Preparation for Possible Attack from N. Korea

Tensions are higher than ever as North Korea continues to make threats and test missiles, while they also work on their nuclear program.

On Easter Sunday, North Korea launched a missile to display their capabilities, and to also honor Kim Jong-Un’s grandfather, but it fizzled out and failed just after launch.

However, we are not out of the woods, just because that missile failed. Satellite images show that North Korea has primed a sixth nuclear launch, and they could possibly have the intercontinental ballistics to fire warheads at Hawaii in the very near future.

Fox News reports:

A long-range missile launched from North Korea could reach Hawaii or Alaska, said Dean Cheng, senior research fellow with the Asian Studies Center at the conservative Heritage Foundation. Hawaii is possibly a more desirable target, Cheng said, since the state has 11 military bases, including Pearl Harbor, and is the headquarters for the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) at Camp Smith.

Cheng warned that since North Korea likely has an imprecise system, missiles launched at Pearl Harbor could actually hit downtown Honolulu or other areas of Oahu.

The impact of a missile hitting the island chain would be horrific, Cheng said. Burn cases would flood the hospitals. The state would need a plan to treat people out of the urban Honolulu center, he said, particularly if Honolulu were hit directly.

So Hawaii is revisiting emergency attack plans while we try to figure out the crazy fat kid’s next move. He would be a fool to legitimately try to hit any US soil, because we have the means to wipe them from the face of the earth.
