North Korea Targets Hawaii

North Korea continues to up the ante: The Associated Press reports that “North Korea may fire a long-range ballistic missile toward Hawaii in early July.” The missile—a Taepodong-2 with a range of up to 4,000 miles—could be launched between July 4 and 8. Hawaii, at 4,500 miles away from North Korea, is just outside of its range, but the missile would also pass over Japan en route.
