Darn That Dog And Those Teeth!

by Tom Bozzo

Ballistic missile defense interceptors are so feckless that even the Bushist Defense Department scales back deployment for additional testing.
In a related story, my attempt at taking over Syria is being "slowed" by lack of oral or written language skills.

Interesting juxtaposition: "test failures in 2004 and 2005 in which the interceptors did not even make it out of their silos" with "Interceptors, however, have failed five times in 11 tests."

Doesn't this imply that the program is doing worse with experience?
Hm. Tough to say, as some of the early test 'successes' involved conditions so far removed from real operations that there wasn't necessarly much reason to expect a net climb of the learning curve.
