Rockets can be notiously fickle (recall the destruction of many rockets in the early days of USA rockets). Wouldn't it be too bad if on of the NK
's rockets blew up about a kilometer up in the air and the debris landed on the 'Dear Leader' and his top military staff.
If the rocket is aimed anywhere near Alaska or Hawaii and happens anywhere near our Independence Day, you can bet we (the USA) will launch as many interceptor rockets as possible, although success would be difficult. I would think the people of the USA would call for immediate retaliation upon NK
, it would dominate then news for days, every politican would call on the President for it. Such a provication would be see like 9/11 or 12/7/1941 in Pearl Harbor. It could be a disasterous situation for South Korea. I hope they don't persue this and are just trying to extort more money and food for who they want to get it in NK
