The Pentagon's Laughable Weapons Test
Fire missile. Miss target completely. Success!



"This happens all the time," one Pentagon official told me with a sigh. "It's incredible."

It's lame is what it is! Even if the testing was just for a new engine it should still be held to the same standards as originally planned. So now the Government wants missles that don't hit the target?! Just let them fly around aimlessly I suppose. This article gets even worse near the end.

"At some point, the flaws might get ironed out in the field, but at great cost.."

Damn right at a great cost! The cost is the lives of those depending on the missles to function 100%, not just ok it flies good enough.

"In other words, by any serious measure, broad or narrow, the test was an abject failure, regardless of how the Pentagon grades it."

And that is how it should be, it flew, but it didn't stop incoming attacks. Who knows maybe this is a foreshadowing of what's to come...incompetent's in the Pentagon.
Oh wait that's nothing new...

I love the smell of a conspiracy in the morning.

The dark truth revealed, it's all an elaborate lie, to make you think we're are actually using top of the line technology in the military, to thwart our supposed enemies. But in reality it's all an elaborate show to thwart nations and people in to the nwo.

Nothing, exept for the fact that the M3 has better electronics and a commanders computer. More like a laptop but it goes over the cover for the machine gun, inside the turret. And it is getting replaced by the Stiker Vehicle, the Marines LAV.
