I would just like to spend a moment looking at the national infrastructure of our country. It is my understanding that a robust laydown, likely to be produced by a single weapon of 200 kilovolts per meter that made it 300 miles high over Iowa or Nebraska, would probably shut down all of our national infrastructure. There would be no electricity.
They might or could, but if they wait, it wont matter. They would have to knock them out before the use them.
And I could be wrong about this, but I think the U.S have no capablility to knock out incoming from the southern region of space, i.e Antartica. Again, I could be wrong about that aspect of U.S defense, In fact I prefer to be wrong about that.

Of course it is.
They want to launch communication satellites so that the citizens of North Korea can have full and open internet access. They also want to launch satellites to study and monitor climate change.
