Default United States Shoots Down North Korean Rocket!!

Now that I got your attention, let me be the first to start the new conspiracy theory rage before the conspiracy theorist make it up....

The DPRK satellite rocket brakes up moments after launch.

I guess they will need to start some new underground nuclear test to try and get back their aid package.

Default I certainly hope not!

The mass media (and you know we can all believe them) sez it failed...fell apart like a two-dollar suitcase. It is my fondest hope that this is the case. North Korea invested a lot of their "street cred" in that endavor.

Can't ya just hear it? "Hey Kimmie ol' buddy! Yeah, you! The roly-poly little troll running North Korea....Too bad about that rocket of yours....nanner-nanner-nanner!"

I would not want to bet a lot of money that it "failed"

Oh No, if the US gets blamed for shooting it down does that mean we will have to buy them a new one to replace what we damaged? Seems to be what is politically correct.

Hell another country attacks us, we bomb them in retaliation, then rebuild it better than what it originally was to "keep the peace"???????????????

Like everything/everybody else there, the engines probably failed from food/fuel starvation.

" Bomb them into submission" ? you guys have already had a go and couldnt do any good. Why do you think the US could do better this time around?

With all the failures and now the 1st stage failed not the 3rd I wonder how long the Iranians will keep funding their joint venture with N. Korea?

@Birdy
So grandfather blew out the candle too early? Sooo Sorry!

How about our airborne LASER, made to shoot down rockets in the boost stage?

Hi Ernie
As long as the target is above the horizon and uncluttered by false ground targets... that will work.

Or and E-bomb (EMP Pluse) will work and as long as it is away from most land masses only a few fishing / cruising boats would be affected.

But so would a low tech solution like supply a defective part that would fail after a short period of time or a sniper from miles away with one shot in the correct location at such a thinned skinned large target.

Probably working on building another rocket I reckon . Guys like 'Kim' do not like being embarressed and there will be a couple of scientists that wont be around to work on the next rocket.

There will most likely be an atomic test in the near future to shore up Kim's ego.
