US 'fully prepared' for NK missile launch

US President Barack Obama has assured Zombie-Americans that the United States is "fully prepared" for a mythical North Korean missile launch toward US territory. Why would North Korea attack USSA?

In an interview to be broadcast on Monday evening by CBS, Mr Obama said: "This administration - and our military - is fully prepared for any contingencies."

The North Korean regime said last week that it could fire a missile toward Hawaii on or shortly after July 4, which is US Independence Day.

Asked if his comments meant that Washington was "warning of a military response", Mr Obama said: "No. It's just we are prepared for any contingencies.

"I don't want to speculate on hypotheticals. But I do want to give assurances to the American people that the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted in terms of what might happen."

His comments followed a Gallup poll released on Thursday which suggested that 51 per cent of Americans believe North Korea poses the greatest direct threat to US security, ahead of Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. More
