Seoul is 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) to the northwest, Tokyo is 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) north and Taipei is 1,700 miles (2,700 kilometers) west. Its proximity to China, Japan, the Philippines and the Korean Peninsula has long made the island an essential possession of the US military.

If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.
