The first ever test of an interceptor intended to shoot down intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) has been successful, the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said. The long-planned trial comes amid increased tensions with North Korea.A Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) interceptor was fired from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Tuesday afternoon. The target vehicle, designed to resemble an ICBM, took off from Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The intercept took place high above the Pacific Ocean, the agency said.
For morons around the world who claim Americas military is deteriorating...Well then explain the first test of an ICBM interceptor in American history being successful. This successful test of an ICBM interceptor conducted today by the US Air Force shows that America is not something to mess with under President Trump, and it's a good sign President Trump is doing this because it really shows that America is back to the rest of the world and people who want Americas destruction. It's finally a good sign to see leadership testing Americas military defenses, because with the world against America in the last few years...The message this sends is America is back and we are ready.
