Another missile defense test fails

Note, that five out of eight record was achieved only because the target missile did not have 1) decoys (which are employed by intercontinental ballistic missiles, and 2) the targets had a homing beacon on them.

So here’s the deal — the missile defense system works sometimes, so long as the target has a big radar signal the interceptor can track, and as long as we have perfect weather in Alaska.
Well, it may be an expensive, ineffective anti-missle system, but at least it’s not as expensive as SDI!
