Just take it out when it goes up so they get it through their heads they aren't going to have a successful launch - ever.

I suspect the U.S. has probably told North Korea that the missile test will not go well -- regardless of the missile's actual performance.
Seen in this light, it makes for an interesting situation.
If the U.S. shoots down the missile before it actually goes anywhere, that will be an unsuccessful test for North Korea.
And a successful test for the U.S.
Well then, that is not good news for us either. We hit them back and who knows what will happen. Still, we really cant just sit and take it i suppose.

I just heard it on the news to... The only part I really heard was the North Korea is threatning to launch a missle at us today and that we have a 90 billion dollar defense system.
All im saying is that I feel sorry for North Korea when they launch a missile at us, they will regret it.

TOKYO — The United States has activated its missile defense system to deal with a possible North Korean missile test, Kyodo News agency reported Tuesday, citing a report.
The U.S. is considering intercepting the missile if North Korea goes ahead with the test, Kyodo said, quoting The Washington Times
The report came after Pyongyang declared Tuesday it is free to conduct missile tests despite a self-imposed moratorium, saying it is not bound by prior agreements and that outsiders have no right to criticize its actions
