do we have anything- perhaps submarine launched?


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

I'd be willing to bet the subs are sitting there waiting patiently waiting to light the place up if he does something stupid. My son just came back from there.

Are you asking about anti-ballistic missile capability?

Yes, we've been developing it for quite a while.

The subject is complex, still relatively classified, and since you're shooting at a missile whose warhead travels at up to 17,000 mph, very, very technically challenging.

We created the Missile Defense Agency under DOD over a decade ago.

Their site has a lot of answers to the questions you're asking: MDA AEGIS

The US Navy's SM-3 missile, in conjunction with the AEGIS SPY-1 radar, was built for this purpose and has been used operationally to shoot down a satellite in orbit. (Operation Burnt Frost). The same weapon system; SM-3 and Aegis radar, has been installed in Deveselu, Romania, to provide defense of Europe from future Iranian missiles. It's a NATO installation, manned by the US Navy.

The subs are there for strikes against NK. They provide no BMD capability.

We can knock a satellite out of space because of hydrazine ..... The key to any response is fast detection/confirm of the threat.

Don't believe the media hype. Their missiles can't get through a laser.

That's been the situation for all of human history - peons paying the price for leaders' decisions.

The THAAD defense system is highly accurate. I don't think it would have a problem taking out a Cold War era ICBM. It can easily track it through radar and heat plume. Especially since North Korea has told us where to look. Also, the UN has told Mr. Bowl Cut to chill, but he's not. What are we suppose to do, play nice against threats? That ain't going to happen.

I am not sure the USA will go to war over missiles fired that are intended to land in the ocean 20 miles from Guam. Japan should be concerned with missiles flying over it's land.

I hope we shoot down the missiles but unsure if we would try that as the missiles are launched.

I wished we had a experienced president and Sec of State.

My wife's son is in the USAF in Seoul.

It seems that some of our past 'leaders' tried the more 'reasonable' approach (even so far as paying NK off not to build nukes) and look at where it has gotten us....

I believe that China supports NK's belligerence despite pretending not to ...
