    It's ONE missile that we can easily shoot, yes, it is worth it to let NK fail because they have yet to get a second stage missile working right.
    For that matter, we probably have enough missile counter-weapons to take several shots at a single missile, or even a few The only way to get through would be a medium-large scale attack, such as only a few countries are capable of.

    Yep that is exactly right. Which is why I would be willing to have an arsenal at hand to shoot down the missile should it be successful, but let them try and most likely fail so they look incompetent.

    Either way it is a win/win situation for America.

    If they fail, their Ballistic Missile program looks incompetent. If they succeed and we shoot down their missile, it proves America can defend itself successfully.

    We have the capabilities to defend ourselves. But we could benefit from proving to N Korea that we can take out their missiles with no effort at all. This might discourage future controversies. By preventing tests we slow their progress.

    Since their two-stage missile program has always failed, it is better to let them fail. We benefit better having them fail IMO.

    True. If we go attempt to sabotage them, or attempt to use diplomacy to convince them to not fire one, it would look like we were afraid they would actually work.

    If we just let them keep crashing into the sea, all to the good.

    Although a few sabotage mission which they are not aware of to keep them blowing up the ocean would be good.

    If this really is news, perhaps you can find it in something other than Sun Myung Moon's newspaper?
