Kim Jung-Un Hates Hipsters and Barbecue

Either that, or the new Kim is angry that his band didn’t make the cut at SXSW.
North Korea has revealed its plans to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States in photos taken in Kim Jong-un’s military command centre.
The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an “emergency meeting” early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea’s strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.
The images show a chart marked “US mainland strike plan” and missile trajectories that the NK News web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
DC and LA make sense as the nation’s capital and largest city, but Austin? What’s the strategic thinking behind targeting a city that prides itself on being weird? Is it a jab at the Texas’ economy? A knock on Rick Perry? Is it a misdirection, disguising his true intent to attack Portland?
Maybe Dennis Rodman can shed some light on this for us.
