U.S. To Intercept North Korean Missile?

As the North Koreans prepare for a missile launch, is the US planning to shoot it down?

U.S. Keeps Mum on Warships in East Sea.
The U.S. has declined to tell the South Korean military if one of its Aegis destroyers is plowing the East Sea with a view to intercepting a long-range ballistic missile North Korea is allegedly planning to launch.
Washington normally gives Seoul due notice when an aircraft carrier or Aegis ship is headed into Korea's maritime operational zone, but it sometimes keeps quiet about ships it sends into international waters off North Korea. Military insiders say there is a good chance the U.S. already has an Aegis vessel in the East Sea.
Meanwhile, the U.S. started the largest military exercise in 10 years. The operation codenamed "Valiant Shield" takes place in waters surrounding Guam, with three aircraft carriers joining drills from Monday until Thursday.
Mean while as we wait on this tense situation to play out, here is a propaganda video put out by the North Koreans on Kim Jong Il's "super powers"(This is a real video that plays on North Korean TV).
