Subject: Will US attempt to intercept North Korean Missile
reefdiver    6/20/2006 3:26:26 PM
Will the US risk an attempt at intercepting what seems to be an impending test launch of an ICBM? There is talk in the news suggesting US missile defense systems have been activated. The stakes would seem high: if an intercept succeeds, NK will be extremely angry and probably call it akin to an act of war. If the intercept fails, the US will be somewhat embarassed - if not humiliated - and NK will be emboldened. I would suggest the US will not attempt the intercept and simply use a launch as a further indication of NK's provocation and threat to the entire world. Thoughts?

Does North Korea have the ability to launch missiles that can actually hit something?

Okay, so this is the second time NK has lauched a missile that it claims can hit the US & the second time it failed. In the immortal words of Johnny Rotten: "Did you ever get the feeling you were being cheated?"

The five SRBMs worked as planned- but I think those were ones he bought from the PRC, weren't they? His IRBM went off course and landed in the Sea of Japan 6 min. after liftoff. And the "long-range missile" went wonky at T+15 sec. and was either aborted or just went 'boom' at T+ 41 sec. Right now, Lil' Kim must feel sort of like George Steinbrenner, after the Cleveland Indians pounded his Yankees into snail snot two games running Monday & Tuesday. Now all we need is an ABM system that's half as good at pitching as the Indians' new guy. Cheers. eon

Wait for the moment when antiwar-groups attack the missile defence program and say that it´s useless because your enemies cannot even build missiles that work;) Makes me wonder what Pakis and Iranians think now...

Makes one wonder how many technicians Kim will have murdered for this "faillure".

Maybe Mini-Mao did it on purpose. Dude's certifiable. We all laugh and then wake up with L.A. at 50,000 degrees with 700mph winds. Not just us either, Every job in our country is affected by a threatened Japan and S.Korea. It's a shame liberals have got GWB fighting their war. Now wouyld be a perfect time to bomb his capability and cost him cash that he doesn't have. This guy means us serious ill. What are we waiting for?
