US Increases Hawaii Defense in response to NKorea Threat

The United States has deployed several anti missile defenses around Hawaii in response to reports that North Korea is planning to launch advanced ballistic missile in the direction to disrupt the Independence Day Holiday. North Korea has vowed to bolster its nuclear capabilities and threatened war in protest to U N sanctions in the wake of there previous nuclear test May 25. U S Defense secretary Robert Gates said that the military has set up additional defenses around Hawaii, radar and ground based mobile missile systems, together they could shoot down a missile in mid air. “Without telegraphing what we would do, I would just say.. we are in a good position, to protect the Americans, and American territory,” Gates told reporters in Washington. I am sure this is a relief to the residents of the Hawaiian Islands.
