TARGET: LOS ANGELES?
North Korean Strike Plans Also Include D.C., Austin, Hawaii
By Harold Hutchison
North Korean strike plans include Los Angeles, Hawaii, Washington D.C., and Austin, Texas, according to photographs that ran in the state-owned newspaper Rodong. The photographs were from what the North Korean propaganda sheet called an “emergency meeting” of North Korean officials.
The meeting came after B-2 bombers took part in joint exercises between American and South Korea forces. The B-2s flew about 12,000 miles from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri and simulated nuclear strikes.
North Korea recently conducted its third nuclear test, which was the most powerful one to date. The United States has been repositioning missile-defense assets to cover the West Coast as tensions with North Korea have increased.
