Japan Threatens to Shoot Down North Korean Missile

North Korea is planning on testing a missile in a few weeks. They have threatened to respond against anyone that interferes with what they are calling a satellite launch (Berman Post: Tension Rising in Asia).

Now, Japan has issued a warning/threat that they may shoot down the missile if they believe it poses a danger to them. The official flight plan of the rocket/satellite takes it over Japan and directly toward Hawaii. Japan is concerned that if the missile malfunctions it could hit or shower debris over Japan or one of the boosters might shed at the wrong time and fall on Japan.
