US to Test Missile Shield?

Sphere: Related Content

North Korea has fueled a liquid fuel missile that may have the capability of reaching Alaska and Hawaii. The Bush administration has to figure out if NoKo has any hostile intent (not an easy task considering the psycho they have as a dictator) and if so whether to shoot the missile down using the barely-tested missile shield.

The looney lefties are all atwitter with the thought that we may actually defend ourselves or at least conduct a live fire test of the system:

My goodness! A military action that actually confronts a real enemy? One that actually sends a message and kind of makes sense? A military strike that involves national defense? Don't count on it, unless...could it have...something to do with the November elections...? Genuine worry: Would that lunatic send his army across the 38th Parallel?

Somebody in the White House should have said "all options are on the table..." With most of our ground forces committed in Iraq and on their third combat tour, the North Koreans would be laughing too hard to press the 'launch' button.

The libs seem to hope we do try, and fail miserably. These people hate anything military and would be swinging from the rooftops with glee if something goes wrong.
