|The news reports all say that the missile broke up on launch. I wonder...did we perhaps help out? There's no reason we would have to admit it. And if we we going to shoot down the missile with Aegis cruisers, it would have happened during the launch stage (where the missile broke up). The previous launch (if I recall correctly) broke up on re-entry. Yet after ten years of R&D this NK missile managed far less success than its predecessor. Hmm...I wonder why?
