US to attempt first ICBM intercept test | TheHill

The Pentagon will attempt to shoot down an intercontinental missile for the first time in a test next week, with the goal of preparing for such a strike from North Korea, ABC News reported.

Officials said the test was not scheduled with an imminent North Korean threat in mind, but it will be closely watched as to whether it shows progress compared to past tests. The ground-based system has not had the best record, with only nine of 17 attempts successful since 1999.

We  have never shot down a test ICBM!

Trillions of dollars and untold numbers of missile systems that have come and gone and they likely would have not worked.  It is indeed fortunate that the Russian missile force that generated $trillions for the MIC was as ineffective as our own.

Be seeing you
