North Korea's plan to attack the U.S. revealed in new photos
Dictator Kim Jong-un shown planning missile strikes on Hawaii, mainland
In photographs intended to strike terror in the hearts of Americans - but if they intended to do so, the photographs would have remained a closely guarded secret -- North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is shown planning to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States. The photos appear to have been taken at Kim Jong-un's military command center.
Photos show a chart marked "U.S. mainland strike plan" and missile trajectories that the NK News Web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.

The text on the map, which shows the west coast of North America, says "Plan to hit the U.S. mainland"
The meeting of the Pyongyang's senior military leaders appears to be in reaction to two U.S. B2 bombers, flying out of bases in Missouri, carried out simulated bombing raids on North Korean targets on an island off the coast of South Korea.
"He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets, ordering them to be on standby to fire so that they may strike any time the U.S. mainland, its military bases in the operational theaters in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea," the state-run KCNA news agency reported.
The report added that the B2 test flights demonstrated Washington's "hostile intent" and said the "reckless" act had gone "beyond the phase of threat and blackmail."
North Korea's military was placed on its highest alert level earlier this week and a hotline link with the South Korean military was severed. In another development, North Korea also cut the mobile Internet link for foreign visitors, only weeks after the 3G service was introduced.
In spite of all the belligerent rhetoric and saber rattling, these photographs emerging from the North Korean regime are believed to be all bluster. Analysts believe its missiles are not capable of striking targets as far away as the U.S. mainland and are not, as yet, capable of delivering a nuclear payload.
The images of Kim surrounded by his officers and diagrams of targets in the U.S. are being waived away as intended for North Koreans to demonstrate the young leader's mastery of military affairs, experts believe.
