I'm just not sure what reaction you'd be happy with.

It's too late now.

To shoot down whatever we like, with no consequences because we are America and always right. Once we destroy his missiles, I am sure Kimmie will be reasonable then.

If not, we can only hope that the Reagan Cloning project succeeds, or we are all doomed.

Would you allow Syria to fly a rocket like that over Israel?

yea, the problem is that we don't really know if our poo works. How embarrassing would it be to try to shoot it down, fail and then watch the missile crash into the ocean on its own anyway. "Wow, you guys spent trillions of dollars on anti-missile defense that couldn't even bring down a faulty med. range ICBM built with bad 30 year old tech." Yea, that'd be a way to keep all those rogue nations in line.

It may happen often. In order to reach orbit with the least amount of fuel, rockets launch in an easterly direction. Taiwan is a small country and fairly far away from the Chinese launch facilities, but the rockets generally have to go in that direction.

Japan completely covers the easterly launch direction of anything coming from North Korea. Unless NK wants a polar orbit, anything they put into space is going to fly over Japan.

We pretty much would have to, wouldn't we?

But here's the rub with N. Korea...that sound you hear is Japan rebuilding its military.

And Japan and China aren't exactly longtime pals. If Japan rebuilds its military, China will be threatened.

Japan is the far more aggressive country, historically speaking. And all of them have some Napoleon Complexes going.

then they could defend themselves, we can close all the bases we have there, and then save a bunch of money.
