Ron nice photo but he is looking the wrong way, he should be looking up.

That's going to be the biggest surprise: That X-37B[3]newly secretive unmanned aircraft that stays in orbit above the target for 270 days can get down to 110 miles in orbit just above and deliver "Rods [Tungsten] from God" that will wake him up. But he will not be waking up here on Earth.

Why Austin?

It is highly improbable that the missile attack plan was something slapped together last month. Odds are good the cities are genuine, calculated targets. Honolulu makes immediate sense. The North's missiles can already hit it, and it is President Barack Obama's hometown.

Los Angeles is a huge target area, ideal for missiles of questionable accuracy. Though not yet within range, it could be shortly. LA has millions of residents plus the icon targets of Hollywood and Disneyland. Washington is a no-brainer. North Korea can't hit the city, but threatening it puts nuclear bull's-eyes on U.S. leaders and America's capital. It's a personal and public tit for tat.

But why Austin?

The literal answer, and literal target, is South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co.'s Samsung Austin Semiconductor (SAS) manufacturing facility, located on Austin's north side. However, pinpointing the hometown of this facility is agitprop excess, for it tells us that the North Korean regime is aware of its own immense and tragic failure. Moreover, the thugs are ashamed.

North Korea's real target, which the literal target represents, is South Korea's demonstrable success. Samsung and a hundred other South Korean enterprises with global reputations and reach demonstrate South Korea economic power and organizational strength. North Korea, a Communist Workers' Paradise, is a starving prison state, and its leaders are profoundly embarrassed.

US special forces 'parachuted into North Korea'

North Korea warns US of retaliation over scrapped food aid
6:00AM BST 29 May 2012
Army Brigadier General Neil Tolley, commander of US special forces in South Korea, told a conference held in Florida last week that Pyongyang had built thousands of tunnels since the Korean war, The Diplomat reported.
"The entire tunnel infrastructure is hidden from our satellites," Gen Tolley said. "So we send (South Korean) soldiers and US soldiers to the North to do special reconnaissance."
"After 50 years, we still don't know much about the capability and full extent" of the underground facilities," he said, in comments reported by the National Defense Industrial Association's magazine on its website.

Imagine the North Koreans invading the South. Once they secured the area, what would they do, and who would do it? They have no infrastructure or leadership to do anything but ask for food. How would they sustain an invasion? Do they rally think the rest of the world would let them keep the south? We will never see a north and south conflict.

I reckon an assassination / coup is much more likely than any invasion. The generals are probably the only people in the country that get three squares a day-- why would they want to face certain destruction?

I have NO IDEA what that means.. Truly..Ive no idea where China stands. It is odd that China has troop movement while NK is the posturing aggresor. Either that or they simply want no part of the debacle and are linning their borders to repel any and all?

Any Chinese military build up near the NK border is for refugee control in case things go South (couldn’t resist). China has its own huge issues – a financial house of cards, aging population, systemic corruption, etc. China has about as much use for Lil’ Kim as Austin, TX does.

Gene nails it on China.

From China's perspective, NK is a minor trading partner and a potentially massive refugee/humanitarian/PR mess.

Well, that is small comfort to the 15 million S Koreans who live within range
of the NK artillery. They could do a lot of damage. As I said a few pages
back I tend to agree with the sabre rattling but one never knows with
bonafide wackjobs. I think a lot of it has to do with saving face which is
why continued negotiations are important, at least as far as those 15 million
S Koreans are concerned.
