U.S. weighs shootdown of N. Korea missile

The Bush administration is weighing responses to a possible North Korean missile test that include attempting to shoot it down in flight over the Pacific, defense officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Robert Einhorn, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said a U.S. shootdown of a North Korean missile on a test flight or a space launch would draw "very strong international reaction" against the United States. He saw only a small chance that the U.S. would attempt a shootdown.
Let's hope he's right - a small non-existent chance.

More John Wayne talk from our cowboy leader. Sure if tracked to Portland - by all means take it down. But to take it out to make a statement...?
