North Korea's missile range

While President Barack Obama (D) huffed and puffed from one side of his mouth about North Korea's missile launch, from the other side came mush about a nuclear free world.
 
Iran's rulers laughed.  As did Russia's, not to mention North Korea.   But not Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska).  Tina Fey be damned; not only can some of Palin's constituents see Russia from their homes, the range of that North Korean missile encompassed Alaska.  And even Obama's native Hawaii.  Even without a nuclear warhead, a missile like that can do extensive damage.
