Let's say NK does get it up for US. I'll wager our abatement systems are so advanced that we're constantly computing the best location above the Pacific Ocean to intercept the thing, based on the jet stream, calculated trajectory, etc., to minimize contamination.

So then what? The nation shuts down for how long while the radioactivity threat level is assessed? Does this put us into enough of a strategic weakness for Russia to consider lashing out?
