North Korean missile test

Writing about web page http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,,1802094,00.html

North Korea is apparently ready to test a missile which is capable of reaching the US. The US are threatening that they will attempt to use their missile defence shield to shoot it down (we'll see if it works).

I find this disturbing. The missile test itself may be in contravention of certain treaties which North Korea has signed up to, but it may not. I haven't read enough to be sure, and the Guardian article above is a little ambiguous on this point. The US threat to shoot it down is hardly reassuring though. Surely this will make a bad situation considerably worse?

    It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds… especially with North Korea's threats.
