North Korea: Yokosuka, Misawa, Okinawa are targets of attack - AJW by The Asahi Shimbun

SEOUL--North Korea has listed three areas of Japan that host U.S. military bases as potential targets for attack, according to the online version of the Rodong Sinmun, the mouthpiece of North Korea’s ruling party.

“It is a matter of course that Yokosuka, Misawa and Okinawa are located within the range of our attacks along with Guam,” the official newspaper of the Workers’ Party of Korea said March 31. “The U.S. mainland is also within that range.”

“The relationship between North Korea and South Korea has already entered a state of war,” the Rodong Sinmun said. “We can intercept any aircraft and cruise missiles that fly from Japan.”

North Korea in the past has suggested that Japan would be the target of its attacks. However, it is rare for the country to list specific areas of Japan as potential targets.

Comment: U.S. military bases at Misawa and Yokosuka already are "glowing" radioactive hotspots thanks to TEPCO and their Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, otherwise known as the gift that keeps on giving. The former is the closest and thus getting the worst of it in the short run but eventually, if we keep ships and aircraft at both bases long enough, they'll all glow in the dark. I guess that will make them easier targets for the NORKs to hit during a night battle. Who knows, maybe that's part of their plan. 

As I mentioned previously, Hawaii should be safe. That will be given to China to pay off America's massive debt. Don't believe me? Have you seen the pollution in Beijing lately. If you were a pollitboro member of the People's Party, where would you rather party? 

So that leaves either Okinawa and or Guam getting the Miss Congeniality prize and thus the most likely to get hit by a NORK missile attack. Given the reliability of their technology, they'll probably opt for the closer of the two. I don't know about you but, as a long term resident of Okinawa, that does give me pause for concern. My only consolation is, it ought to have the Chinese equally worried. Kim Jock Ung and his itchy (and more than likely "stinky") trigger finger and faulty technology could end up taking out Shanghai by mistake.
