Default My Hometown (Kauai) Fears They are a Target of North Korean Nukes

Two main targets for North Korea: Pearl Harbor and PMRF on Kauai.

This is my home...island I guess you'd call it, lots of towns on Kauai. On the west side is the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands. They take the high school freshmen for a field trip, so visited in 1976. Big tracking station.

They have been testing THAADs there for years, so why wouldn't they station some there? Strange.

If NK nukes hit Hawaii, it would end life there as they know it. Tourism would dry up, except for the chernobyl/fukushima adventure tourists, and Hawaii would be fucked. They have a 4 day supply of food and other resources before they need resupply from the mainland.

A lot of people on Kauai are pretty worried.

Quote:
BARKING SANDS, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Following rising threats of a nuclear attack from North Korea, some are calling on lawmakers to beef up Hawaii's defenses.

Assuming it has the capability, a North Korea missile aimed at Hawaii would have to be stopped by interceptors fired from military bases in Alaska or California.

Missile defense advocate Riki Ellison doesn't like the odds of placing Hawaii's safety on a one-shot option.

"You have a very tight window because you don't have an opportunity to see if you hit it and then fire again, and you've got the rest of the United States that's got to be protected," he said.

Ellison founded the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance in 2002. He advocates for better missile defense systems to protect the United States.

He said Hawaii needs its own radar and defense capabilities. He believes the Pentagon should equip the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai with Aegis Ashore interceptor missiles, utilizing hardware already in place at the Barking Sands site.

"You can fly in your missiles," he said. "You already have a launcher that can hold eight. You can fly those in in 24 hours. You can turn this thing on. It's unbelievable why we're not doing it."

Hawaii Rep. Colleen Hanabusa is open to the idea, but believes turning PMRF into a missile base might detract from its mission as a test and training site.

"Having visited PMRF recently and spoken to the captain there, I believe that the sense is that PMRF's significance and its importance is really in its ability to do the testing," she said.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard favors arming the range with shoot-down capabilities.

"We've got to take action to make sure that we have a missile defense system in place in Hawaii to defend Hawaii. Given the threat that we're facing there's no time to waste," she said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered five nuclear tests and a slew of missile tests. President Trump warns of major conflict with North Korea.

Pacific Command Adm. Harry Harris told Congress recently that Hawaii needs interceptor missiles in the future.
Ellison believes the sooner the better.

"We all want to have confidence we're not the number one target on the North Korean list, which we are today," he said.
Ellison thinks if the Kauai missile range became a missile intercept launch site it could serve as a deterrent to North Korea's threats.
Kauai's PMRF could be Hawaii's one-shot defense during a missile attack.

I don't think their missiles have the range, just yet, to reach Hawaii or Mainland US.

I've thought about NK hitting Hawaii for a long time. It's perfect: concentrated population centers with limited supply/aid response possibilities, America's paradise, much closer to NK than the West Coast.... Just think how difficult it would be to deliver supplies and medical aid, and to evacuate people, if the airports were nuked. Everything would have to be done by helicopter and ships. Helicopters don't have the range to make it from the West Coast, and ships are slow.

NK would be erased in retaliation. Very foolish move.

Getting bombed by NK would build character, would be good for the home owners association. Would be interesting to see how the insurance companies and banks treat the victims.

You think chubby chops is suicidal? He's just spouting his slobbery fat mouth off to look like the big guy to his plebs, and forbid them plebs to say otherwise.

He's just a big bully to his people and would shake shit from his socks out in the real world.

All mouth

Regards the poll I'd say he'd take a pop at South Korea as it's the nearest for him, if he's fucked up enough to want to get wiped off the face of the earth he'd like to go down with an easy target, anything else he'd get hit first before his wee darts even landed and wouldn't get to witness his weak attempt at playing with the big boys.
