Well, seems just on the heels of Irans rebuttal to the UN, we have a test and success of the land based missle defense shield. This is one part of many that will comprise the shield, but it is the first successful mission.

The U.S. military shot down a target ballistic missile over the Pacific on Friday in the widest test of its emerging antimissile shield in 18 months, the Defense Department announced.


85 million dollars to reassure who that we are safe? The media? Our country? or the North Koreans to back off. This should prove interesting across the globe with reaction to the test.




In the exercise, a target missile was launched from Kodiak, Alaska. And for the first time, the ground-based interceptor missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in central California. Previous launches have been from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

You see, they postponed the test because of foggy weather and today it was a success. But what happens if there is foggy weather and there is a missile headed for Seattle or Anchorage? What happens? We don't launch becaus of bad weather? The problem with these tests is that they are not a mass test launch. It is more likley that 100 missiles will be headed for the U.S. rather than one or two... that will be the real test.
