The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an "emergency meeting" early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea's strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.What sort of complete lunatic plots an attack on the United States and leaves out New York City? Especially when he has sufficient insight to put Austin on the list. I mean, even the cartoon supervillains who kept the Justice League of America busy understood the importance of taking out New York City and the UN headquarters there.

The images show a chart marked "US mainland strike plan" and missile trajectories that the NK News web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
We truly live in an age of tin. Even the quality of Man's reclusive supervillains has declined. A missile launch at the USA by Kim is about as likely as the current Supreme Court overturning the judicial ban on Proposition 8.
