An image from Jane’s posted on the Washington Post website shows the range of the North Korean Taepodong-2 long range missile. Former SecDef William Perry thinks the U.S. should strike before they launch the test of the missile but intelligence officials say that while there is the possibility of a launch, they can find no evidence that the rocket has been fueled.

Cheney minimized the threat posed by North Korea to the United States, saying that its “missile capabilities are fairly rudimentary” and that “their test flights in the past haven’t been notably successful.”

Update 07/04/2006: CNN is reporting that fuel trucks and other equipment has departed the launch site which could indicate that the missiles are fueled for launch that some say could come as early as Wednesday.
