Think I understand why Obama did not deploy a Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System to NorKor. He did not want American people to know it actually works. This test would be a wonderful freebie. We could not intercept a satellite launch any way, but if this were to be on an Earth trajectory, we could take it out with some confidence. Our targets are harder, smaller.
That is my conspiracy theory of the week and I’m sticking with it until my next beer.
