Military-Industrial Complex 0, Reality 9

The latest test of the so-called Missile Defense Shield has failed. This time, the thing didn't even launch before computers shut down. This comes on previous reports that the test had to be postponed because of poor weather in Alaska. So we have a $50 billion useless boondoggle that has so far failed to produce any meaningful results in nine tests. Even the few "successes" it has had were in tests that were so unrealistic as to be laughable.

But Saint Ronnie said it would work, so I guess the Republicans will keep throwing money at it. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: the Republicans think Kyoto is too expensive?
