I heard about Attu Island, the westernmost Alaska Island that had its residents kidnapped by the Japanese in the 1940s. The survivors were unable to return. There was a LORAN station but it closed several years ago.

Here's a hypothetical question: Say a very wealthy man decided he wanted to repopulate Attu with himself and his brothers and sisters. Would they be able to buy land in Attu, or would the federal and/or state governments try to block the purchase? Who owns the former village area in Attu?

Attu Island is roughly 2400 miles from North Korea. The Sep 15th 2017 missile launch was 2300 miles.

Attu island is technically an abandoned coast guard station.

I am wondering if North Korea would consider bombing this island. It would be an attack on US soil with no casualties. It might be more symbolic than actually firing over Guam.

I wonder what we would do if he tries something like that.
