They could release a whole bunch of debris. Now there is hundreds, perhaps thousdands of objects moving very quickly through space and our systems would not only have to figure out which is the real target, but now we have to hit the target and not any of the decoys and we only have a couple of minutes to figure all this out.
And N Korea is at a point that they are using a decoy system to go along with their nukes?
