North Korea may be targeting Hawaii in missile test.

According to a Japanese paper, North Korea may be preparing to launch a long-range ballistic missile, possibly in the direction of Hawaii. They intend to launch the missile between July 4 (the Fourth of July holiday) and 8.

However, according to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the United States has positioned more missile defenses around Hawaii as a precaution against a possible North Korean launch across the Pacific.

“We do have some concerns if they were to launch a missile to the west in the direction of Hawaii,” Gates said.
Gates told reporters at the Pentagon he has sent the military’s ground-based mobile missile system to Hawaii, and positioned a radar system nearby. Together the systems theoretically could detect and shoot down a North Korean missile if it came to that.

“Without telegraphing what we will do, I would just say … we are in a good position, should it become necessary, to protect Americans and American territory,” Gates said.
