Experts: Costly US Missile Defense System Probably Doesn’t Work

The political decision of whether or not the US is going to attack North Korea rests at least in part on the effectiveness of the $40 billion US missile defense system, and its ability to shoot down retaliatory strikes from North Korea. While the Pentagon has insisted they have 100% confidence they can do so, experts are warning the system probably doesn’t work.

Indeed, the Union of Concerned Scientists has even issued a statement warning that Pentagon confidence is not only unwarranted from the data, but may be misinforming politicians making decisions on starting a war on the basis of their defensive capabilities.

The experts warn that there has been very limited testing of the missile defense system, and even in those tests, which are in ideal situations and not real world conflicts, the system has only succeeded three times out of nine. In a real world scenario, it would likely be even less dependable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only 3 successes and 9 fails, under perfectly controlled conditions?!?

That's a 40 billion dollar epic fail, in my world.

And who is making those weapons?!? Should they not be fined, and doing hard jail time, for continuing to make something which obviously doesn't work, yet assuring politicians and the American public that they will work, when it's crunch time for them to succeed, and they can't?!?

This is a completely insane bet, to attempt to use them against North Korean missiles.

Mr. President, a word please.

The only sane way forward here is to encourage China to get North Korea back to the negotiating table, and hammer out a true peace treaty with which to replace the armistice, with the quid quo pro being that North Korea stops its nuclear weapons development program.

You're welcome, sir!!
