How high did it go?

Did they shoot it straight up in the air?

Tactically that would make it more difficult to intercept.

I wonder if we took action to stop the missile.
I have wondered that about all of the ones that failed.

Are they not allowed to test fire missiles?

No, Only America and everyone else. Tis the rules.

Would be nice if we had a satellite or spy plane or shuttle high enough not to be seen, but powerful enough to knock out missiles as they are launched.

one report said it fell 22 miles from launch point.

They're a big threat to the people in South Korea. But apparently they don't matter.


They matter, but they must take their matters into their own hands and deal with them.

There is always some fiasco going on there just as is everywhere. 5000 people have died in Chiraq so far. More than both long wars combined.

How many Americans has NK killed by comparison?

No offense bud, but..priorities much?

I live in Oregon.

that means it missed me by just 6,428 miles.

OMG

THAT WAS CLOSE!

Historically North Korea has spent their money on weather satellites but the whole country is run like a military regime and they have some dangerously bright technical people.

North Korea is a dangerous enemy who is threatening our allies, Japan and South Korea.

I hope we take their actions seriously.

Not much of a near hit, was it?

At least you 64 hours of warning.

And America threatens everyone.

Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Russia, China.

Our "Allies" don't have friends?

Why isn't Israel, India, Germany, UK, France, etc worried about N. Korea?

Or at least not worried enough to see them as a threat, or not enough to take action on their own to stop them.

And this

"I hope we take their actions seriously."

Why? So many, many people can die?

North Koreans? South Koreans? Americans?

I don't think NK will be 'allowed' to have a successful missile launch for the foreseeable future.

Satellite or shuttle would have to be parked in a geostationary orbit to loiter over NK; that's about 22,000 miles above Earth.

It would take a very powerful laser or particle beam weapon to cross that distance, and the intervening atmosphere, and still have enough "juice" to knock out a missile in flight.

A spy plane would have to loiter at an extremely high altitude well offshore to avoid detection. That would eat up lots of fuel.

And, the lower the altitude you loiter at, the longer it takes to acquire the target, and the greater the chance that you'll miss.

They don't have a central bank.

I don't want anyone to die, but if someone has to, I'd want the enemy to be the ones dying.

Do you want to ignore the treaties we have with Japan and North Korea?

Last I heard, North Korea is well north of the equator. No geostationary orbit possible.

It was determined a while back that Reagan's "Star Wars" plans were problematic. For a variety of reasons. But the cartoons were awesome.

And who's the enemy?

The gov. of N. korea?

Or the people of N.Korea. who are victims of said Gov.?

And it's nice you only want the "enemy" to die, but reality isn't like that.

Many innocent people will die.

And is N. Korea your enemy? Or the enemy of something that could care less about you?

And treaties? They mean nothing to the U.S.

If a country has oil, or doesn't accept the federal reserve, or dare to trade in anything but the petrol dollar, there any a target.
