The United States has no plans to shoot down the North Korean rocket, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday in an interview with CNNâ€™s Jill Dougherty, but will raise the issue with the U.N. Security Council if Pyongyang carries out a launch.
â€œWe are doing our best to dissuade the North Koreans from going forward, because it is provocative action,â€ Clinton said. â€œIt raises questions about their compliance with the Security Council Resolution 1718. And if they persist and go forward, we will take it up in appropriate channels.â€
Flap’s bet: Japan WILL shoot down the missile while Obama and Hillary try to talk it out of the sky with the United Nations.
