ICBM launches are monitored from geo-stationary orbit, not low earth orbit so are perfectly safe. Further to that there are rumours that the latest LEO sats are stealthed and very difficult to map their orbits.

Finally the Shuttle did succeed in being a reusable orbiter, it just didn't meet the criterion of being cheap.
