Well, more failure.
We should contact our elected representatives and ask each one of them why we continue to fund deployment of a failed system, designed to challenge an non-existent enemy while our soldiers die every day without proper body armor.
It's a GD scandal and no one seems to care.
An interceptor missile failed to launch early Wednesday in what was to have been the first full flight test of the U.S. national missile defense system in nearly two years.I don't have a problem spending money to develop this technology, but we've paid to deploy the GD thing when it doesn't work, and has never worked, ever! But you can bet your bottom dollar the contractors, who donated heavily to the RNC and BC 04 have gotten a great return on that investment.
The Missile Defense Agency has attempted to conduct the test several times this month, but scrubbed each one for a variety of reasons, including various weather problems and a malfunction on a recovery vessel not directly related to the equipment being tested.
However, the agency said the ground-based interceptor "experienced an anomaly shortly before it was to be launched" from the Ronald Reagan Test Site at Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific Ocean 16 minutes after the target missile left Alaska.
An announcement said the interceptor experienced an automatic shutdown "due to an unknown anomaly."
It's a GD scandal and the public is so ill informed they think they are being protecting when in fact, they are only being fleeced.
