Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) doesn't sound too surprised that North Korea might have its sights set on attacking his state's capital city in a strike against the United States.

"Economically, what has happened in Texas over the course of the last decade has made this city an epicenter for a lot of technology, a lot of economic development, and I think the individuals in North Korea understand that Austin, Texas, is now a very important city in America, as do corporate CEOs and other people who are moving here in record numbers," Perry told CBS News.

A recent photo from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's war room appears to indicate that Austin would be one of the American cities the country would target in a strike against the United States.
