Couldn’t we just shoot it down with a missile before it activates?

We have classified ways to deal with things like that. But this satellite is uselessly tumbling and not of a mass or volume to carry a nuclear device.

So should we be worried about an EMP attack over CONUS?

Somebody correct me if I’m misunderstanding. In December North Korea put a 250-pound super EMP into orbit which can be activated by their satellite at any time and hit anywhere on earth, including the US through a hole in our south-facing radar defense.

That’s what I get from the combination of this article and this guy’s editorial yesterday, at http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/understanding-north-korea-and-iran?f=must_reads#ixzz2MBnGqAqR Am I misunderstanding something?

Do we have the capability of taking out North Korea’s satellite? And what are either China or Russia likely to do if we did so?
