At 3:01 AM, the US Air Force successfully launched an unarmed Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile from a California base towards targets in the Pacific Ocean. Three unarmed re-entry vehicles were confirmed to have hit their targets in the Marshall Islands, some 4,200 miles away. The Air Force referred to the launch as nothing more than a reliability/accuracy test, but Defense Secretary Gates has already deployed "Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missiles and an SBX Radar to Hawaii in response to reports that Pyongyang plans to test a missile sometime July 4". So what's youre take on the intent of the 'test'?

I think the test is nothing more than the effective utilization of taxpayers hard earned money spent on the successful demolishing of two drones.

I believe its better than spending it on small arms and putting people in harms way in places like iraq, iran and afghanistan but thats just my opinion

I assumed it's a hint to North Korea to knock it off, or else.

Kid does something irresponsible, parent tells them not to do it.

Parent does it later on, kid watches.

Kid says, parent does it why can't I ?

War ensues.

"Incoming fire has the right of way" - Unknown

Keep it coming ladies. As a not so well known scientist said "I know not what weapons world war III will be fought with but I know that world war IV will be fought with sticks and stones" - Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein actually came up with the theory of nuclear fission fun enough.

Blow it up, wreck this electronic age and let me get back to farming :D
