Yup, he could do that. I think President Trump is going to shoot down his next test, and everyone after that.
North Korea has launched a test missile that landed in the Sea of Japan, a US official says. Ref. CNN.
Well he is still launching test missiles. This one again was aimed towards japan again. We did not shoot it down this time.
Yeah, we need to start shooting them down because we're not going to know which one is live or which is Memorex.
Do we even have the forces in place to start shooting them down or is he being defiant and making a shot of the bow so to speak?
We have deployed the initial part of THAAD, but I don't think it's operational yet. But the missiles on our ships are capable of shooting them down… if the ships are in the right position. That said, shooting down his rockets would be a pretty inflammatory move.
This missile exploded in flight so it either malfunctioned or was hit. This is different than previous launches which just ended in the ocean. North Korea has shown that they do not care about the military build up and will shoot missiles when they wish.

Or they intentionally exploded it via remote control. There are lots of possibilities but yes they just do not care.
