U-2 Spy Planes in Japan

A group of U-2 spy planes, known for their work during the cold war, have been sent to Japan.

Three planes total, along with 180 new troops landed last week.

The “Dragon Lady” is a single jet, ultra high altitude spy plane used for intelligence gathering.

The reason for the deployment is simple: they are being used to collect data on North Korea and its nuclear program.

The United States is concerned that new ballistic missile tests in the Sea of Japan are signaling a possible nuclear test.


Pesach “Pace” Lattin is the original hacker. At 10 years old he took his parents original 8088 XT computer and took it apart and was told that he had to put it together. It took him a few days to figure it out, but within a year he was building computers himself. He also spent much of his time selling computer game copies to his friends at school – making a nice little profit.
