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!
