"At approximately 4:31p.m. HDT one THAAD single-stage solid fueled missile was fired from its eight missile canister mobile launcher based on the edge of the Pacific Ocean on the western shore of Kauai, Hawaii streaking upward through the dark cloud layer... The kinetic intercept occurred a few minutes later using the missile's infrared heat-seeker in the upper atmosphere as the separating offensive warhead went through re-entry on its terminal phase of flight. Differing from previous tests was that the target missile was dropped from a C-17 Air Force transporter before it ignited and traveled through space."Not too bad for a missile defense system that, according to the Democrats, is a complete and utter failure as well as a total waste of tax payers money that could have been wasted on Liberal projects.
"This test demonstrated THAAD's capability to take out a two-stage missile, as its previous 4 tests demonstrated THAAD's success with the single stage scud like missile. This successful test follows the activation of the US Army's Alpha Four Battalion for THAAD last month at Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas."
Woo-hoo for the good guys!
