That's a typo, right?The United States, which has 28,5000 troops in South Korea
On the threats note: do NK have any reasonable military force that is not 50 years out of date?
What response will there be if NK starts firing in every direction?
I wasn't aware we had any intention of shooting at it.
I say let them have their little victory and put their little 1 megapixel camera into orbit.
Officially no. And we probably won't do anything.I wasn't aware we had any intention of shooting at it.
The laser options have the fun deniability factor. Full spectrum cameras might notice the rocket is a little brighter in one frequency than it should have been, but its a difficult thing to prove.
Any time you want to detonate a nuclear weapon over the Sea of Japan, be my guest. Just don't come crying to me when the intelligence services of every country come swarming over your house, asking why you broke the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty, and probably started a war.just Kinetic Intercept and lasers ? wear are the nukes ?
The problem, I believe, is that that violates the restriction placed on them regarding no ballistics.
They're intentionally violating that restriction, and letting that slide would be more harmful than enforcing it, I think. It's the principle of the thing.
Well be a little suspicious if it doesn't reach orbit then. A laser could cause failure that might not include breakup of the rocket (before it impacts the ocean). Disabling a control surface, gimbals, flight instrument or computer is more than enough.Ah, I didn't know that we prohibited them from having anything at all.
In that case, methinks we have a fun opportunity to try out our airborne death ray.
