WASHINGTON -- The U.S. is moving ground-to-air missile defenses to Hawaii as tensions escalate between Washington and Pyongyang over North Korea's recent moves to restart its nuclear-weapon program and resume test-firing long-range missiles.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday that the U.S. is concerned that Pyongyang might soon fire a missile toward Hawaii. Some senior U.S. officials expect a North Korean test by midsummer, even though most don't believe the missile would be capable of crossing the Pacific and reaching Hawaii.


Guess we get to see what kind nads the new President has. This should be viewed as an act of war if carried out.

Which begs the question, should we be cutting missile defense funding?

Being how simple it is to decoy missile defense it is pretty much useless.

Launch 25 Mylar balloons at apogee and you have no idea what to target. In the vacuum of space a mylar balloon will be identical to a warhead.

Besides, anyone who is going to nuke us will use a container ship not a missile.

It must be "Short Persons Disease" at its best! Belligerent, Bombastic Little Bast***ds! Annoying as a Nat on the behind of progress!

We may soon see just who shaves their legs in that Washington town...........

An 18 inch rudder and a bucket of coconuts and they still call us boy!?! The US Navy should and will resolve this issue long before we wake on the appointed day. One Pearl Harbor is enough for many life cycles!

Tell that to the Russian's.

"Defence experts say there is little doubt that the real target of the shield is Russia. "The geography of the deployment doesn't give any doubt the main targets are Russian and Chinese nuclear forces," General Vladimir Belous, Russia's leading expert on anti-ballistic weaponry, told the Guardian."

Reagan's missile defense was a bluff. It worked. The Soviets folded.

The same bluff rarely works twice.
