Where To Even Begin?

Japanese naval forces successfully shot down a medium-range missile off Hawaii in a test of Tokyo's missile defense weaponry, the US military said on Wednesday.

A Japanese destroyer detected, tracked and knocked out the missile in mid-flight with an SM-3 interceptor rocket, the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said in a statement.

The missile was launched on Tuesday at 6:00 pm Hawaii time (0400 GMT) at a missile range site off Kauai in Hawaii and at 6:04, an SM-3 interceptor was fired in response, the MDA said.

"Approximately three minutes later, the SM-3 successfully intercepted the target approximately 100 miles (160 kilometers) above the Pacific Ocean," it said.

Japan has sought to bolster its missile defenses in the face of the threat posed by North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.

US President Barack Obama's administration has announced plans to build a missile defense shield in Europe using the SM-3 interceptors and the Aegis radar system.

So O Duce is now trying to take credit for being brilliant by replacing the missile defense system that Bush had promised Poland ... with another defense system that wouldn't even exist if O Duce had his way that was developed by ... Bush.

The average IQ of Americans that swallow this swill is too low to measure.
