Liberal Faith-Based Initiative Fails; Anti-Missile Defense Test A Success

"Inconceivable!" said Democratic spokesman Vizzini.

Ynigo Montoya, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Vengeance at MIT, begged to differ.

Within a year, the U.S. missile defense system should be able to guard against enemy attacks, while testing new technologies, the deputy director of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency said on Monday.

The United States activated the ground-based system last summer when North Korea launched one long-range and six short-range missiles.

O'Reilly said there would be no formal announcement that the system was operational. He predicted the capability to defend against enemy missiles and to continue testing and development work would be achieved within a year.

"It's just a matter of maturation," he told reporters after a speech hosted by the George C. Marshall Institute, a public policy group.

O'Reilly said work by North Korea and Iran on long-range ballistic missiles underscored the need for a viable U.S. missile defense system.

...

O'Reilly said the missile defense system, which includes sea-based and ground-based interceptors, and powerful X-Band radar systems, achieved success in 14 of 15 flight tests.

Democratic spokesman Vizinni immediately objected that these tests "proved nothing," as the tests were "set-ups" in which the ABM system engineers "knew where the incoming missiles were." "In these tests, the ABM technicians used radar and supercomputer targeting systems to detect and aim at the SCUDs. I mean, come on, how fair is that? It's just inconceivable that we could possibly hit a missile with another missile!"

Professor Montoya, who's just finished an 800 word monograph on Bonetti's Defense, continued to dispute that characterization:

...

Through the end of 2007, the program will focus on protecting the United States from threats from the Middle East and North Korea, expanding coverage to U.S. allies and boosting protection against shorter-range threats.

In 2008 and beyond, there would be increased focus on countering unconventional attacks and increasing the U.S. inventory of interceptors and sensors, O'Reilly said.

I've never gotten this theological certainty that it was "utterly, entirely, and in all other ways inconceivable" that a missile could be used to knock down another missile. As is often the case with liberals, it seemed fundamentally dishonest: They were claiming it couldn't be done (as if it were theoretically impossible, violating the Uncertainty Principle or something) when they really meant it shouldn't be done.

Well, it can be done. Eat it.
