Missiles and Ships

NoKo has a track record of conducting provocative events on Great Satan's High Holy Days such as the last nuclear test occurring over the Memorial Day weekend. So it is likely that this next missile test will be on the 4th of July weekend, which is something they did before 2006.

According to the latest reports the Taepodong-2 missile is going to be likely launched from their new Tongchang-ri missile base on the country’s West Coast.

Pentagon has repeatedly said that they can shoot down this missile, and ya gotta admit - Def Sec Gates may not telegraph specific intentions - but he does telegraph high confidence that it can be done.

The real quiz is - is the political will available to do it?

News about tracking suspect NoKo transport ship toting suspect booty seems to indicate if any missiles come any where close to Hawaii a fireworks show may in fact happen over the 4th of July holiday.

So much for "if you apologize repeatedly they will love you"

Oh, what the hell...shoot it down. Practice makes perfect, and irritates the snarf out of Jong (very) Il. I've never been able to see him any way other than as the marionette after Team America -- World Police ;)

Left to his own devices I think Gates would shoot NoKo projectiles down, hell, Hillary would shoot it down; Obama, would talk it to death.

I really enjoyed reading your entire blog, witty writer that you are. It helps that I agree with your point of view!
