No I really can't imagine waking up to something like that.

Probably every single state has some sort of an alert notification system and cell phones (and not just smart phones; it called "Emergency Alerts" on the menu and it has a different ringtone) all have the capability to receive a short message. How vulnerable is any given states system to being hacked..............?

Much more important, the number of people who will be fired (or resign) for this is [fill in the blank].

A news program says a Hawaii state employee "hit the wrong button."

I would imagine everybody here at KF knows that Hawaii is supposed to be ready for a nuclear missile attack from North Korea.

The good news: we have 44 missile interceptors that should be able to knock down any North Korean missile.

The bad news is two-fold:
1the Obama administration cut back on money for missile defense.
2 The interceptors, which should be able to knock down any Noko missile, may fail if two many missiles are fired at us simultaneously. That seems unlikely now, but could happen in the future if Little Rocket Man is allowed enough time to build them.
