Funny how this keeps happening.

And so shortly after successfully executing the four-missile simultaneous launch just a month and a half ago. March 7.

What is not being addressed and should be is that if this was a successful sabotage; what does it say about the ICBM arsenals of the world? Are they reliable? How would you know if yours is reliable? If they are vulnerable to in flight destruction by sabotage, then why isn't the ultimate destination target also not vulnerable to change? Is the sabotage in house or at a distance? Certain answers to any of these questions could mean that at a stroke the world's entire set of nukes are useless or worse.
You know that in N Korea they are probably counting the screws (with very sweaty hands) in their nuke box to see what happened.
Since the "Dark Ages", we have seen in the military (and society as a whole) evolve a more centralized C and C. This has been greatly aided by electronics and data management. Now we may have reached that point where maybe we must go the other direction (decentralization) for the very same reasons.
