Just as North Korea announces they've got nukes, our missile defense system (aka the Star Wars Defense System) fails another test. This is just more great news.
Missile Defense Interceptor Fails To Launch In Test.
CBS Nightly News (2/14, story 4, 0:30, Rather) reported, “It's back-to-back failures now, the second in months for the prototype of the US missile defense system. This is a successor to the so-called ‘Star Wars’ system.” The AP (2/15) reports, “A test of the national missile defense system failed Monday when an interceptor missile didn't launch from its island base in the Pacific Ocean, the military said. It was the second failure in months for the experimental program.”
