    If you mean Midway is within range of their nukes, it isn't. American bases in Japan and Guam are.
    If you mean we could hit them back quickly, I don't know how much military hardware we even have there. The bulk of our bombers are located on US soil and can fly pretty much anywhere in the world and come home, but that will take time. China could very easily march troops south and render our bombers irrelevant.
    It was a futile attempt at a joke from WWII about how whoever controls Midway controls that entire area.

      Ah. Got it. I'm still mostly asleep so humor is lost on me.

        Hopefully we have a few aircraft carriers and subs off the Korean coast that could respond quickly if the NK's go off the rails.

          I believe on Tuesday they said they'd attack tomorrow.

          That's come and gone. No attack.

            Do they have calendars? That could hamper their attack plans.

            I believe we have moved more military hardware into the area. The key piece according to a news clip I saw is a Destroyer with early-launch detection capabilities. They are looking at a launch on Monday because that is supposedly Un's birthday.

              I think Un's grandfather's birthday is next week. That might be a date he could pull something.

                It's also possible that the definition of a day is different. After all, we could still be in God's seventh day, and on the eighth day, God could decide to destroy everything and start over again.

                  That day could be Saturday if St. Cloud actually wins a championship

                    If Un plans on attacking when one of the North Country teams wins a title, we could be waiting awhile.

                            I believe that the island (atoll) is still there though.

                              Wouldn't Hawai'i and Alaska be in range as well?? Nuking Hawai'i would screw up a lot of vacations, along with Trans-Pacific trade. If they hit Anchorage, Air freight travel would be screwed up for a while, but I would guess that they would be able to figure out another location up there that would work for having an air freight hub that can hit up most of the northern hemisphere.

                                Are you worried about Guam sinking because of a US military buildup on the island, too?
