Japan intercepts missile in milestone test

A Japanese navy destroyer shot down a ballistic missile on Monday in a test about 100 miles over the Pacific, a first for a U.S. ally, U.S. and Japanese forces said.

Speak softly and carry a big stick.

U.S.-Japanese missile-defense ties have grown greatly since North Korea fired a three-stage Taepo Dong 1 missile over Japan on August 31, 1998.

Not one of the finer moments for Albright, Saint Bill or Bill Richardson, eh?

Such cooperation [between the U.S. and Japan on missile-defense and naval tactics] has angered [China], which fears it could help the United States defend Taiwan if China used force to try to bring the self-governing island under mainland rule.

Yep.

Wait just a cotton-pickin', li'l' ol' minute here!

I seem to recall long lines of Democrats queuing up for the TV talk shows to proclaim that missile defense systems wouldn't work, couldn't work, could never ever ever work, that it was an impossible dream, & etc.

And yet - it works! Go figure . . .

Jim Addison wants to wait a "cotton-pickin" minute. Well Mr. Addison has the right idea. After all, those loud-mouthed Democrats are decendents of the good 'ol boys who stood on Kill Devil Dune in Kitty Hawk 100+ years ago and said things like, "that thar contraption 'ill never work, it ain't got no in-flight movie! I ain't gettin on no contraption with no in-flight movie!"
