Shooting this (see link) down over an unpopulated area (like an ocean) would probably be a good thing, and be pretty impressive

       ... though not as impressive as deflecting it with a very large ping-pong bat.

       One nation’s military already considered it. They chose not to, as it would expose the existence and capabilities of their missile defense system.

       Having this thing fall on you would be unhealthy. Take an umbrella with you this weekend.

       I'd shoot it down and deny it, say it was an accident. We had only sent probes to intercept it, break into its guidance and telecommunications systems to analyze them but due to shoddy workmanship of the rocket, it blew up before we could disengage our interception and analysis droids. Send deepest apologies and assure them we’ve taken corrective measures with our interception droids so that won’t happen the next time.

       // deny … say it was an accident … apologize // That would be like Israel trying to explain detonating one of the nukes they don’t have. As they absolutely didn’t do in 1975 or 1979.

       Then I'd have an assistant run up to the podium and hand me a folded piece of paper after my statement, I'd read it and say "Oh... uh, never mind. It probably blew up because of sparks or something."

       Panic over! You can all stop watching the skies; it seems to have crashed into the Indian Ocean

       Yes, it definitely broke apart spontaneously. No- one here had anything to do with that. Carry on ...

       // definitely broke apart spontaneously //   

       That’s just what doctorremulac3 WANTS you to believe. It was really going to hit his secret island laboratory. So he fired one of his low-yield nukes (smaller than a oencil eraser) to knock it down safely.   

       Well played, doc!

       Actually that’s just what [a1] wants you to believe that [doctorremulac3] wants you to believe
hippo, May 09 2021
  

       Like we should believe YOU, eh?
