North Korea has released photographs showing leader Kim Jong Un signing an order putting the nation’s strategic rockets on standby to fire at U.S. targets.

Gun Control: Was Harry Reid right to Reject It?

But what’s most interesting in the photos is a chart in the background behind Kim Jong Un and his generals, marked “U.S. mainland strike plan” and showing missile trajectories from North Korea that appear to end in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Washington, and Austin, Texas.

The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were taken at an “emergency meeting” Friday morning, The Telegraph reports.

The meeting was called in response to the flight Thursday of two American B-2 bombers, flying out of Missouri, that carried out simulated bombing raids on an island off the coast of South Korea.

“[Kim Jong Un] finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets of the [Korean People’s Army], ordering them to be on standby for fire so that they may strike any time the U.S. mainland, its military bases in the operational theaters in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea,” the state-run KCNA news agency stated.

The B-2 flights, the news service said, showed America’s “hostile intent,” calling them “reckless.”

The United States and South Korea insist the joint military exercises they launched in early March are purely defensive.

North Korea’s military was placed on its highest alert earlier in the week, and the nation severed a hotline link with the South Korean military.

Pyongyang also canceled an armistice agreement with the United States that ended the Korean War in 1953.

North Korea conducted its third nuclear-weapons test in February. But military analysts believe its missiles are incapable of reaching U.S. mainland targets. They could reach bases in Japan and Guam, however.

The Telegraph adds: “The images of Kim surrounded by his officers and diagrams of targets in the U.S. are designed for a domestic consumption and to demonstrate the young leader’s mastery of military affairs, experts believe.”

The BBC reported that after the B-2 flights, thousands of North Korean soldiers and students took part in a mass rally in the center of Pyongyang in support of Kim Jong Un, beneath large portraits of his father Kim Jong Il and grandfather Kim Il Sung.
