Video: Ground-Based Missile Defense System Intercepts Target


The video comes from the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, which pushes for missile defense spending, although it is derived from footage taken directly from the website of the Missile Defense Agency. The Alliance released it Monday. Over the weekend, the Defense Department hailed the successful test of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system.

It had been a while since the last successful test. All of them, the Los Angeles Times noted, have been “carefully staged.” Another failed test might have affected the Pentagon’s plans.

    One hit and how many misses? Regan and his science fiction is still costing us billions.

    I am much more concerned with Bill Clinton’s sale of two nuclear reactors to North Korea. Look at what that gift gave us.
