Letter: U.S. should shoot down North Korean missiles


To the Editor:

The U.S. military should shoot down all North Korean Missiles as soon as they are launched as an unacceptable offensive military action against the west.

This would prevent the perfection and fine tuning of the missiles and targeting mechanism. Suppose the Supreme Leader decides to put a nuclear payload on a missile.

This poses an unacceptable risk to American citizens and property in addition to our allies the Japanese and South Koreans.

This also would be a good real world test of the U.S. military and a showcase for the public similar to joint exercises with South Korea.

The most likely reason that President Trump refuses to try to protect America is that the U.S. military is unable to shoot down Korean missiles. Something that should be given top priority now.
