Wonder if they are talking of scalar technology - If true, it could be quite scary. My guess, however, is this is still a dream - not a reality.

I would suspect some of North Korea's neighbors would be quite interested in the system. While the system needs line-of-sight to operate, I wonder how effective it could ba against outbound missles near their source rather than inbound missles.

Could this be used on other things besides missiles? Maybe to take a hole out of a plane or ship? Could it be adapted to underwater combat, not that there is much of that anymore?
Also is there anyway o stop this? Maybe a shiny mirror ?

If we deploy this kind of system the U.S. may become virtually untouchable. Just the kind of thing we need. This test makes me feel a lot safer
