After this we discuss the current situation in Iran. We didnt really reference too much on the internet, this is from watching the "news" all morning on Fox. We also discussed the poll they displayed regarding countries that pose a threat to the US, with North Korea at the top with 38%. We also read a short article from the AP regarding the possibility of a missile test by N Korea over the 4th of July weekend.
here is the piece -
WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he's positioning defenses near Hawaii just in case North Korea fires a missile across the Pacific toward the island state.
Gates says he's 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.
Gates says the U.S. is watching the North's moves very closely. He says there is concern about a potential launch toward Hawaii, although he did not spell out how extensive the U.S. thinks the threat might be.
A Japanese newspaper reported Thursday that North Korea might fire its most advanced ballistic missile toward Hawaii around the Fourth of July holiday.
