Would North Korea Fire Ballistic Missiles at Hawaii? Why?

If the reports are true, how should Obama respond to such provocation.


Writes Casey Sherman: "According to Japanese intelligence reports, North Korea may fire a ballistic missile toward Hawaii around the Fourth of July. While North Korea's Taepodong-2 missile does not appear to have enough range to reach Hawaii (experts say it would fall about 500 miles short of the mainland), it does pose a threat to the United States and its standing in the world." If North Korea fires missiles toward the U.S., how should President Obama respond? And what would North Korea get out of it? Post your thoughts.
