Kim Jong Il: Irrelevant

Missile threats from North Korea have been neutralized:

The United States successfully carried out a flight test of ground-based missile defense system Friday, shooting down a warhead over the Pacific Ocean and saying it now has a "good chance" to intercept long-range North Korean missiles.

The success, which came after two failed tests in December 2004 and February 2005, is expected to boost the recently stepped-up U.S. efforts to build up its missile shield since North Korea's missile launches on July 5.
