Can The Death Star Be Far Behind?

By Wyatt Earp | July 25, 2006

I’m loving this story out of Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. military hopes to complete work this fall on a plan mapping out how regional commanders will be able to use the fledgling U.S. missile defense system, a top general said on Tuesday.

The United States’ first target will be the Alderaan system.

Dodgen hailed a recent successful test of a missile-shield component built by Lockheed Martin Corp. to shoot down a ballistic missile in the last minute or so of its flight.

So, we can shoot down a North Korean bird on the launch pad? Heh.

The so-called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense weapon system, or THAAD, “exceeded its objectives” in the long-planned test at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, Lockheed said in a statement earlier this month.

I wonder how much it will cost to mount one on my roof? Let’s see those bastards blare their rap music now!

    That’s why I am sooooo happy to be living near the ship in the cornfield and Lockheed….I might glow in the dark some day, but I feel safer. :)

    This has nothing to do with the post, but I think it should be all over the blogosphere, particularly with PA bloggers: Al-Jazeera endorses Casey against Santorum.
