intercept ballistic missile in Pacific

A Navy warship and the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency on Saturday failed twice in a key test to shoot down a medium-range ballistic missile, raising questions about America’s readiness to intercept potential enemy attacks. The Defense Department did not reveal a specific location, but it’s believed the test took place somewhere off the coast of Hawaii. The announcement of the test’s failure comes just one day after the Biden administration requested a fiscal 2022 budget of $8.9 billion for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), down from its 2021 figure of $9.1 billion.(Snip) Perhaps adding insult to injury, a Russian naval surveillance ship


Our defensive missiles might not work, but USA's commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity, to rooting out White supremacists, and to putting transgender soldiers front and center as the face of our military is the envy of the world.

That Russian AGI that they are talking about is always in Hawaiian waters, either south of the Pearl Harbor entrance or in the Pacific Missile Test Range off Kuai. It is just required to stay in international waters.

The good thing is that our Navy ships have lots of menstruating women that envelop white males in exciting fragrances even if we cannot do the job. Do not minimize the scent of a woman on regular men. Perhaps the next step will be an all Gay Navy.

A test is just that, a test. The SM-6 has been undergoing regular software improvements so tests may not turn out as planned. My problem is that they have essentially developed a multi-role missile: anti-air, anti-missile and surface attack all rolled into one. A tech person would know more than I, but I suspect this would be a pretty daunting project.

When Reagan first talked about missile defense, the left mocked him non-stop for years. The idea was ludicrous.....the ravings of a mentally incompetent president. 21 years ago, NPR ran a story telling us how crazy the concept was. Not one word of apology when a few years later, Patriot batteries were knocking Scud missiles out of the sky over Saudi Arabia. Not one word of apology or retraction when we all watching amazing video of Iron Dome rockets maneuvering over the skys of Isreal taking out several thousand rockets. We take technology for granted. But technology is hard to perfect. And now they complain when something that was impossible 20 years ago, doesn't work 100% of the time.

With all the diversity, sex, race separation training you have to ask, do our politicians and military really mean to inflict harm on our enemies? Our enemies haven't done anything to us, yet, why pick on them? There are whites in the military who supported President Trump those are the real enemies.

The news media isn't reporting anything our enemies don't know. Having worked in the defense industry I can testify that the protracted procurement process is a disaster. By the time a weapon is deployed the threat it was designed to counter has changed and the contractor has to make modifications. The much reported defense cost overruns are usually due to Change Orders from the customer and not the fault of the contractor. This testing is likely due to the pentagon changing weapon expectations.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced plans to build black wealth and narrow the racial income gap ahead of a trip to Oklahoma to mark the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre. Biden's plan focuses on two key creators of wealth: homeownership and small business ownership. Under his proposal, the Department of Housing and Urban Development will propose new regulations 'to root out discrimination in the appraisal and homebuying process,' according to a White House fact sheet, in a bid to boost black home ownership. The administration also is seeking to address disparities that result in black-owned homes being appraised at tens of thousands of dollars less

Tallahassee, Fla.—The Biden administration is urging a federal court to dismiss a lawsuit that could stand in the way of states like Florida in allowing prescription drugs to be imported from Canada. In a legal brief filed Friday, the White House argues that the lawsuit filed on behalf of U.S. pharmaceutical companies was premature because the federal government has yet to approve any importation programs. The administration’s legal filing came on the same day Florida’s Republican governor, who is considering a run for the White House in 2024, called on the Biden administration to approve its drug importation application.

Houston–She wondered what the children knew. Kimberly Hewitt noticed them playing outside Cuney Homes when she arrived on the anniversary of George Floyd's killing and feared the deaths of Black people were starting to seem too normal. She did not want young people here to think an early death was their fate, too. Hewitt and several dozen well-wishers prayed. They recited Floyd's name and released a panoply of red and gold balloons into the sky. Yet the mourning was hardly over. Floyd was only one in a cascade of neighborhood men to die lately, and they had another funeral to attend.
