Ummmm, yeah.

The blaring headline from The Drudge Report tonight says it all:

So what happened? From DefenseNews:

Another US Navy ballistic missile intercept reportedly fails in Hawaii


A test shoot of the SM-3 Block IIA fired from an Aegis Ashore test site in Hawaii failed Wednesday, CNN has reported. The missile is designed to intercept ballistic missiles.

If confirmed, it would mark the second unsuccessful test of the Raytheon missile in the past year. It also deals a setback to U.S. missile defense efforts as North Korea makes seemingly daily progress on it goal of striking the U.S. mainland with nuclear-armed missiles.

When reached for comment, U.S. Missile Defense Agency spokesman Mark Wright declined to comment on the outcome of the test.

Translation from bureaucratspeak:

It doesn’t work.

It sucks.

The government is lying to you again as it takes as many as 20 to 30 interceptors to take down ONE WARHEAD, not just one missile which MIRVs.

Make your own choice ladies, prepare or die.
