North Korea is readying to test a missile that can hit the West Coast.
It says that it’s not bound to a missile testing moratorium in this article.
I think that it’s a perfect time to test America’s ABM capabilities and try to shoot the thing down.
If we miss, we’ll lose some diplomatic face in exchange for data from a real-life situation. But if we blow the thing up… Kim’s nukes won’t be seen as such a threat and we’ll look even tougher.
It’s a risk worth taking if I were Bush.
