    A sobering read CA. Is our anti-missile defense worth a damn?

    The Hoover cost about $750 million by today's standards & the Pentagon put in close to $10 billion for missile defense.

    So worth quite a few dams.

    I don't think Un is smart enough to figure out what it means if he keeps doing what he is doing.

    One of the talking heads I was listening to last night reminded the audience that NK does this in cycles. They do something outrageous, agree to negotiate, and then get some kind of concessions.
    Each cycle seems to be more aggressive/insane than the last, so I don't know if this one has gone too far. We'll see.

    I would love to seem him lob several missiles at Guam and have THAAD knock them all down. Sure would be a good field test...

    Yep he would do nothing but waste his time and missles. Just him hitting Guam is slim to none, much less the U.S. itself

    Makes you wonder, with all the Trump is in over his head talk, if NK is starting to figure out that there will be no concessions this time around. Might be the advantage of having these Generals around the President as they have all seen the failures of past concessions over a few admins.
