The Good Guys–The U.S. Military Successfully Shoots Down Missile in Hawaii Test

The military aced a missile defense test in Hawaii yesterday. The news was played down/overshadowed by the AIG stupidity.  However, a huge congratualtions is due to the 6th Air Defense Artillery Brigade in Hawaii for the smackdown of this missile.

HONOLULU – The military says its ground-based mobile missile defense system has successfully shot down a medium-range ballistic missile during a test in Hawaii.

The military says the target missile was shot down Tuesday over the Pacific Ocean.

The target missile was fired from a mobile launch platform off the island of Kauai.

Soldiers with the 6th Air Defense Artillery Brigade then launched an interceptor from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai’s west coast.

The Missile Defense Agency said in a statement that the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system had “completed a successful intercept.”

The technology is specifically designed to shoot down ballistic missiles during their last stage of flight.

The military of the United States is still competent, and still in the business of protecting us. Of course, this administration is only two months old, and democrat knives are out for cuts in the military budget. But for today — our military is able to shoot down an ICBM.
