#1 "Orchestrated the North's sinking of a South Korean warship ..." > NOT good news for the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON CVN.

#2 Indeed. A missile launch against an American CV would be a *major* propaganda coup.

Sure, it would likely|hopefully get shot down, but the Americans would not do anything about it, other than a sternly worded warning, for fear of starting a war.

#3 We need a 'team america' like puppet for Junior.

Perhaps dress up the Philsbury dough boy in drag.

As for the CVN - It's not unreasonable for the North Korean leadership to believe that Obama would not do anything if a missle was fired at the CVN. And if they are lucky he might confuse the issue ("Wait. don't do anything yet - I haven't decided what to do. Where's Valorie?") enough for the missile to do some damage.

#4 How would the Norks be able to localize a CVN to within 500 miles? Unless they aimed at Yokasuka of course.

#5 If Kyok-Sik has been given a top post - then it's reasonable to expect a lot more trouble from this bunch. Whatever dirty moves they can dream up ... there's a chance they will put them into play.
