North Korea on standby

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered his forces on standby to strike the U.S. mainland, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii.

State media say Kim "convened an urgent operation meeting" of senior generals just after midnight and signed a rocket preparation plan. The North is fuming after just yesterday, U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers dropped dummy munitions in joint military drills with South Korea.

And tens of thousands of North Koreans turned out for a 90-minute mass rally today in support of Kim's call to arms.
